First tarot reading – you have just ordered it, but do you know what to expect? There is one most important thing to know before ordering your Tarot reading.
I read tarot for other people for some time now, and last year I had around 400 clients, approx. 150 of them had their first tarot reading. Usually, 70% of my clients come to me in my studio to do reading in person. However, clients also order readings online, and many don’t really know what they are ordering with their first tarot reading.
I have no idea whether it is Mercury RX season to blame for this misunderstanding, but… Recently I had two interesting clients who contacted me via one of the popular platforms where I recently offered my readings. I don’t like doing readings over other platforms, but my own shop on this website since you never know who is behind each username. It is much better and more personal if you send me an e-mail and introduce yourself with your name and your life story.
I hate to see people being exploited because of their naivety or lack of Tarot knowledge. This is also the main reason why I decided to write this article. To let you know what you need to know before you order your very first online tarot reading.
Most skeptical people get used easily!
As mentioned above, I had two clients who didn’t really know how tarot cards interact with the reader and their client. One of them (let us say her name is Betty) asked me how her future relationship with X would be. I kindly asked her to let me know on what terms she currently is with this X person; are they just friends, ex-lovers, acquaintances, or even strangers? And at this point, she asked: “Shouldn’t tarot just pick up the energies?”
I felt a bit like giggling when she asked this question. To me, it was crystal clear in an instant that this wasn’t her first tarot reading. She must have had a few tarot readings before, and her previous tarot readers were either extremely superficial readers or plain charlatans! Namely, she was absolutely sure that tarot readers are like psychics. She didn’t really know how tarot works.
Let’s make one thing clear. Yes, tarot does pick up energies; however, the same energies can be interpreted differently in different kinds of relationships. Let’s say I pulled out 4 of Wands.
4 of Wands talks about a happy time. In love and relationship reading, this can be an extremely positive card that denotes a warm and loving time between two lovers. However, if you two just think about dating, this card can denote that the public will accept your union.
Now, things can change drastically if you two aren’t a couple or if you two are ex-lovers. In this case, the same card actually has a different meaning. It means that there are no romantic feelings between two people but rather just friendly feelings that won’t change into something more.
Unexperienced tarot readers and inexperienced clients are, of course, not aware of this fact.
One thing all first-time tarot clients should know
When you ask a tarot reader for help, you must know that a true tarot reader will have to pick up your energies to get an accurate reading for you. Therefore you must be sure enough to trust them to come into your personal space.
I always ask clients to tell me the story behind the question. Two things happen this way:
1) they think a lot about this question and about the whole situation, and this way, I can pick their energies much easier and quicker, and
2) I get to know them and can easily determine which cards denote my client’s wishful thinking and what will happen in the future.
You have to trust the reader and the process.
So far, I only have had a few clients so far who refused to give me any information and claimed that a real tarot reader doesn’t need any additional information apart from the question. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to help them. A few months later, I coincidentally found out that they had spent A LOT (and I mean a lot!) of money on tarot readings from tarot readers who told them what they wanted to hear and not what it is true.
Statistically, people who are the most skeptical about giving away too much information to tarot readers are often exploited by fraud tarot readers. The saddest thing is that there is no way you can help these people. They have to learn from their own mistakes; in my experience, it usually takes three to five years for them to see it.
With my one-question readings, I always ask my clients to give me as much information as possible. In return, I dedicate at least 3 hours of my time to dive deep into their energies and give them the most detailed reading possible. If necessary, I even do free extra advice readings for them afterward so they can decide which next step to take.
As I always say – you must TRUST if you want to see what the future will bring to you.
