Tarot & Psychic Insight – Common Reasons for Inaccurate Tarot Readings

Updated on May 29, 2009
Most people know that tarot cards are about as evil as 
coloring books. Instead of being tools of some satanic 
force, they're simply pieces of cardboard with pictures 
that help to trigger intuition. The more intuitive a reader 
is, and the more they know the cards and have established 
a dependable system to use them, the more accurate their 
readings are.
Of course, the question for the tarot reader is important 
too. General, unfocussed, or trivial questions tend to get 
poor results. Specific questions tend to get specific answers. 
Questions such as "Will I be rich?" or "When will I meet 
my soul mate?" are very common, but not well stated; rich 
means different things to different people and we all have 
many soul mates. "What will be with the idea I have for a 
business?" or "What will be with my love life in the next 
6 months?" are much more appropriate questions. Also, 
if the questioner isn't supposed to know something 
because it may interfere with his or her destined path, 
for example, a good reader will know the question isn't 
meant to be explored.
Another important yet often overlooked factor which 
effects accuracy with tarot spreads is personal energy. 
Just as you have a great energy connection with certain 
friends which results in great experiences, or a poor 
energy connection with a neighbor who isn't respectful, 
positive or negative energy between a reader and client 
can greatly influence the quality of the reading.
For example, when Stephen does a tarot reading for a 
long-standing client with whom he has a great working 
relationship, the energy connection is good and  that 
person's faith in Stephen as a reader allows the information 
he "receives" to flow freely and copiously. Alternatively, 
when he does a reading for someone who's very critical 
and skeptical or who happens to be projecting, for whatever 
reason, a lot of negativity energy, because of Stephen's 
strong empathic and spiritually sensitive state, he'll feel 
blocked and not compelled to help the person.
How does tarot work? There are many theories, but we believe
tarot readings can very effectively outline current and
destined personal circumstances because there exists a
divine order in this Universe, everyone is intimately 
connected to this order, and because fate exists. Also, the 
78 unique tarot cards and the methods employed using them 
are mathematically and symbolically synchronistic with 
"what is." An experienced tarot reader can tap into this 
synchronicity. It is not an "accident" or "coincidence" when 
certain cards appear in certain positions in the tarot spread 
of an experienced reader.
Some readers claim that their tarot spreads are "...only
about the current path you are on. It's possible you will
change directions and avoid the outcome indicated." In some
cases this can be true, but some readers might say this
because they lack confidence in their abilities, or to
attempt to empower their clients and keep them from feeling
too much fear about the future.
However, based on our 22+ years (combined 44+) of experience
with metaphysics, we believe that the majority of significant
future personal life events and circumstances, as outlined by
tarot, comprehensive astrology and numerology, and other
esoteric sciences, are immutable. If something is going to
happen, it's going to happen.
We believe, based on years of regular spreads for ourselves 
and others, that the future can be seen through tarot. 
However, as stated above, results depend heavily upon the
reader and other factors listed in this column.
Lastly, to provide a better idea of why some readers 
don't offer as much insight as you might hope, here are 
some other common reasons for inaccurate tarot readings:
*The reader, even with an extremely successful track 
record and a very consistent, high accuracy level, has 
an off reading and happens to give one of his or her 
inaccurate readings to the client (no reader is 100% 
*The reader is inexperienced with the process and, or 
does not yet know at least the bulk of the symbolism 
found through each of the 78 cards.
*The reader is not very intuitive, or his or her intuition 
is blocked for whatever reason.
*The reader's philosophies and beliefs conflict with "what 
is" (e.g., he or she tells the client that they can cheat
fate and erase all of their tough karma without having to
directly balance it, or that they can have the "relationship
of their dreams" whenever they want, creating a "permanent," 
blissful, conflict-free "life-partner" situation without the 
use of self-deception, manipulation, and conditional love).
*The day and time (universal, and the client's personal 
numerological and astrological timing) of the reading strongly 
suggests, despite the high level of expertise and accuracy of 
the reader, that information imparted at that moment may not 
be as appropriate or accurate as it would be at other times.
*The client is fated to hear specific information in the reading 
that turns out to be inaccurate, but that information helps to 
ultimately steer them in the right direction.
*The reader is biased about the issue related to the reading;
human filters can and sometimes do get in the way of 
spiritual guidance.
