4 Tarot Myths

Updated: May 27, 2023

Tarot reading has been around for centuries and has since gained popularity across the globe. Despite its increasing popularity, misconceptions about tarot reading still persist. Many people believe that tarot reading is only for fortune-tellers and psychics, that the cards are meant to predict one's future, that Tarot is evil and/or black magic, and that the death card is a harbinger of literal death. In this post I will debunk these popular myths and explain why they are not true.

Myth #1 - Tarot is Fortune Telling

While tarot cards can provide insight into a person's future, they are not tools for predicting it. Instead, tarot cards are meant to help individuals gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their situation. Tarot reading is a form of divination that can help people make better decisions, gain clarity, and find direction in their lives.

Myth #2 - You Have to Be Psychic to Read the Tarot

While some people may have a natural intuition or psychic ability, anyone can learn to read tarot cards. Tarot reading is a skill that can be learned through practice and intense study. It's all about learning the symbolism of the cards and how to interpret them in different situations. With time and practice, anyone can become a skilled tarot reader.

Myth #3 - The Death Card Literally Means Death

Perhaps the most popular myth about tarot reading is that the death card is a sign of literal death. In reality, the death card is a symbol of transformation and change. It represents the end of one phase of life and the beginning of another. The death card can indicate a major change or transition in one's life, such as a new job, a move, or the end of a relationship. It does not mean that someone is going to die.

Myth #4 - Tarot is Evil

Finally, and perhaps the most pervasive myth about tarot reading is that Tarot is evil or associated with the devil or dark magic. This could not be further from the truth. Tarot reading is a tool meant to provide insight and guidance to individuals. It is not meant to be used to manipulate or control others or for any malicious purposes. Tarot cards can be used to help people make positive changes in their lives and gain a deeper understanding of their situations. Tarot reading is a form of divination, not a form of dark magic.
