Ask Brigit: Is my Tarot Reading Wrong?

By January 21, 2015 May 2nd, 2018

You've just done what you thought was an amazingly insightful and accurate Tarot reading, but when you ask your client if it resonated, they tell you that your Tarot reading is completely wrong!

Today's Ask Brigit question is from Anastasia who writes:

“I recently did a Tarot reading for a client which, for me, flowed very easily. But when I asked the client if it resonated with her, she told me the Tarot reading was wrong and completely inaccurate. I thought the cards never lie. Was my Tarot reading really wrong?”

What a sinking feeling. You do what feels like an amazing, insightful Tarot reading only to find out that your client doesn't connect with it at all.

There are a couple of possible reasons here.

First, you might actually be wrong. I know it hurts to say it, but sometimes we have ‘off' days as Tarot readers and we don't nail it every time. In fact, I always question those readers who say they have 100% accuracy because I find it hard to believe that they never get it wrong.

Second, you might actually be on target with your reading, but the client doesn't know it yet. You see, a Tarot reading will pick up on both present and future energies. We know what is happening to us right now and we can probably make some predictions about how things will turn out. But we can't always know for sure what is going to happen. I know I have been surprised by some major turns of events in my life that I didn't see coming.

So it's the same for our Tarot reading clients. They might think something is impossible, but as time passes, they come to realize that it actually is possible and has in fact happened. I have had clients email me up to 9 years later to apologize and tell me that the reading they thought was completely wrong turned out to be completely right.

So if a client is questioning the accuracy of a reading, I always suggest coming back to it in a month or two to see if it resonates further.

Finally, you might be a little bit right and a little bit wrong. Here's how. I believe the energy of each Tarot card in a Tarot reading is mostly always right. But it's how we interpret that energy in a reading that can be a little off. For example, say you get the Five of Cups as an Outcome card for a relationship. You might interpret it as a break-up, but in actual fact it turns out to be a general feeling of disappointment in an ongoing relationship. The energy is the same, but the manifestation of that energy – i.e. how you interpreted it – is different.

Anastasia – I hope that helped!
