Obviously no one needs a Tarot or Oracle card reading, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't get one anyway. We don't need lattes, extra fluffy pancakes or bath bombs. But we consume them in droves. Why? Many people are awakening to the concept of “self care.” You know, things that promote personal growth, provide clarity, and give guidance at any juncture. I’m definitely not here to tell you card readings will solve all of your problems. I am simply here to discuss an addition to your “personal growth” toolbox.
With that, here are a few reasons you should consider getting a reading:
Decision Making. You're faced with a decision and you would like some insight on the pros, cons and possible outcome of each direction. Tarot and Oracle, coupled with a competent reader, can help break down for you the energetic climate of each path. This doesn't mean you'll be told what choice is better, but it does mean you'll be armed with the information you need to make a more informed decision.
You feel stuck or in a rut. We call card reading a mirror - it won’t tell you things you don’t already know in the deep recesses of your mind, but it can also be a spark. It can help inspire you to see and breath new life into what seems like an old routine. Whether that means exposing your blocks and barriers or prompting you to dive into something fresh and exciting, card reading can bust down those walls and help you see the many paths available.
New Endeavors. You're embarking on something brand new. Whether this is a job, relationship or major purchase - cards can help you check your blind spots and provide practical advice for the next steps on the journey. I personally consult my cards almost daily with some new decision or anxiety.
Relationship Questions. And actually, relationships in general are a great reason to consult tarot. Maybe you've been having difficulty interpersonally, or maybe everything is going swimmingly and you just want to know how to keep it up! Whatever the case, Tarot can help you understand the strengths, challenges and how to bring your best to any situation where partnerships are involved.
Spiritual Guidance. You know you have a team around you, spiritually speaking, and you'd like a way to tap into them and receive guidance. We use card reading to communicate with the spirit guide realm, including crossed ancestors, and to me, this is a completely valid way to not only gain insight but also learn exactly who is in our corner. This can be an especially powerful type of reading if you've been feeling lonely or disconnected. These readings are not only one of my favourite ways to use the cards for myself, they're also one of my favourite ways to increase connection for others.
They're damn FUN! No, seriously - aside from all the super deep and important insight that can be gained, card readings can also be completely light, if that's the space you're in. Whether you're sitting down with someone in person to receive one, or enjoying getting that email packed full of juicy info, Tarot readings are fun to perform and fun to receive. And there is nothing wrong with a little laugh at the tower is there?
