Tarot Card Predictions – Avoid These 3 Obstacles


Making tarot card predictions can be a challenge especially if you’re new to the art of tarot. The main reason why people are fascinated with tarot is that they can make tarot card predictions just by learning the meanings of the cards and tying them up as one “story” that can give clues about your future.

Everyone who owns a tarot deck has the potential to use it well. But not every person who has recently bought a tarot deck can do this because several factors come into play. Read on to find out some of the main reasons why people find it difficult to use their tarot cards for divination.

Top 3 Obstacles to a Good Tarot Prediction

1. Lack of objectivity.

Many fortune tellers would tell you that it’s much more difficult to do a self-reading compared to doing it for someone else. The main reason for the difficulty is the lack of objectivity in a do-it-yourself scenario, especially if it’s about your romantic future. You can solve this issue by doing one or two things. First, you can ask a friend (who’s also into tarot) to read for you. Second, you can pretend you’re reading for someone else. Being able to keep your personal feelings at bay while doing a reading is very important.

The same problem is obvious when you’re reading for your relatives. You know them well so you tend to negate whatever the cards tell you. Moreover, you somehow would not feel like telling your mom that her business is in trouble. If you don’t mind reading for your relatives, then go ahead; but most people would find it hard to keep an objective perspective when reading for those close to them.

2. Being Fearful or Disbelieving

Being skeptical is one of the major stumbling blocks of making a good tarot prediction. There are two types of skeptics when it comes to tarot; one that refuses to believe because of religious reasons, and one that refuses to believe that the ancient art has anything more to offer other than pretty drawings and a rich history. The former would buy tarot cards out of curiosity or while he is in a state of fascination, but would stash it away somewhere without using it because he thinks tarot is ‘evil’. The latter dwells on the fact that tarot cards are pieces of cardboard with art on them, and believes that they’re nothing more than collectibles.

3. Impatience

You won’t be an expert overnight. In fact, for the first few tarot card readings, you will likely use online tarot card reading tools, or a handy guidebook and a tarot reference to help you with psychic tarot reading. It will take frequent practice to really hone your skills. It also helps if you have a good memory when using tarot cards, as you can grasp all the meanings of the cards faster.

Making tarot card predictions is more than just memorizing the meanings of the cards. It’s all about tying up the meanings, and considering the question of the querent (you or the one you’re reading for).
