Do you use tarot cards or you’re thinking of getting one? Or maybe you listen to tarot card readings online?
Well then, this post is for you. But just a warning, it might change what you think about tarot cards.
Tarot cards are cool and all and it’s easy to get sucked into them especially if you’re new to spirituality.
There are so many creators doing pick-a-card readings and channelings on Youtube, Tiktok, and other platforms.
A lot of people are also buying their decks and learning how to use them for their guidance.
But most people have no idea that these tarot cards could be doing more harm than good.
I also got sucked into the tarot cards trend but after some deep reflection, I decided to throw them away.
I have very good reasons for this and by the end of this video, you’ll be able to decide for yourself too.
In this article you will learn:
- The dangers of channelings and tarot cards
- How your beliefs can influence tarot card readings
- My advice when drawing tarot cards
Why I Threw My Tarot Cards
There’s a big chance that a lot of people who are new to spirituality have already seen a free tarot reading online.
Maybe it’s a pick a Tarot card pile, a June tarot reading, or channelings using your star sign based on astrology.
I don’t think these are good things to be doing and I can explain why.
Why Did I Throw My Tarot Cards?
There’s a growing number of tarot readers out there. It’s not that they’re doing something wrong intentionally.
Most of them are not even aware of what they’re doing and how it might be misleading people.
If you’re new to spirituality, it’s very easy to get sucked into it and a lot of people do get sucked into it these days.
They want to know what’s going on, where their lives are going, or what’s going to happen next.
So they go to Youtube and type “free love tarot card reading” or “what will happen next month tarot”.
Even for decisions like whether they will accept a job or not. Instead of weighing the pros and cons, they’ll go to Youtube and search “free tarot reading yes or no”.
Tarot Meaning And Origin
Tarot and German Tarock are derived from the Italian Tarocchi, the origin of which is unknown. Although taroch was used as a synonym for foolishness.
The tarot is a deck of playing cards that have been used in many regions of Europe from at least the mid-15th century to play games such as Italian tarocchini and French tarot.
Some tarot decks began to be utilized for divination via tarot card reading in the late 18th century.
This led to the development of tarot cards for such esoteric purposes.
What Are Tarot Cards?
The Tarot deck consists of 78 cards, each with its unique artwork, symbolism, and tale.
The 22 Major Arcana cards symbolize life’s karmic and spiritual teachings, while the 56 Minor Arcana cards depict our everyday difficulties and sorrows.
There are 16 Tarot Court Cards in the Minor Arcana that symbolize 16 various personality traits that we may choose to show at any particular time.
The Minor Arcana also comprises 40 numbered cards organized into four suits of ten cards each, depicting diverse scenarios we face daily.
What Are Tarot Cards Used For?
Nowadays, tarot cards are widely used for tarot readings.
Reading tarot cards may appear to “predict your future” but many Tarot card readers will tell you that the cards are only a guide.
The reader is simply interpreting the likely outcome based on the forces at work at the moment.
According to many, the most effective approach to reading the Tarot is to use the cards to access your intuition and inner wisdom. The imagery in the cards helps you to access your intuition.
From this position of inner power and wisdom, you will discover how to make important adjustments in the present to manifest your dreams and desires in the future.
Speaking of manifest, I recommend checking out this system I created on how to manifest faster.
In the case of the free readings we see on Youtube, the reader channels her intuition through tarot cards to give you a clue on what the future may bring and tell you what you can do in the present to influence that future.
This may seem harmless but it could have negative effects if you’re not aware of its dangers.
Tarot Card Dangers
1: You’re Not Sure Which Entities Are Answering
There are mostly negative entities in the 4th dimension. These entities are designed to keep you down in the 3D realm.
They don’t want you going higher. They also don’t want you to realize that you have the power to transcend all of this.
To cut it short, most of these 4th dimension entities don’t have your best interests at heart.
They want you to be confused to keep being stuck in this realm.
Yes, you or your tarot reading may be getting messages from that realm but those messages may lead people astray.
Sure, it could also be a positive entity that could be giving those messages but how can you know for sure?
How many people are out there making videos about tarot? ? How many tarot decks have been sold in the market? And how many entities are there in the fourth dimension?
Can you tell?
It’s just incredibly unlikely to get in touch with the positive beings when the negative ones are trying so hard to hijack their messages.
I also talked about these negative entities in another video about channeling. I recommend that you also check it out.
2: The Tarot Reader May Not Be Channeling At All
Another danger of tarot readings is that the channeler themselves may not be channeling.
So then, you’ll get a combination of their subconscious programming, their expectations, their opinions, and just plain random messages.
The person may not be channeling or connected to anything. Even if they think that they are, they might just be getting answers from their minds.
They could just be pulling random cards out of a deck that they brought in a bookstore,
It’s also perfectly easy to tell people what they want to hear. Especially if you believe in the person, that makes you highly suggestible.
Chances are, you clicked on a video or bought a tarot reading because you think that the reader is legit.
Before they even start talking, you already have a bias.
And even if you hear something you don’t want to hear, their messages may still affect you.
Especially if that message is something that triggers a strong emotion such as fear.
You may think it came from a higher being, but it could just be coming from the person who is reading. A person with her own positive and negative experiences.
3: You Rely On It Too Much
While there’s nothing inherently wrong with just listening, I think it can be dangerous when you become reliant on that.
When you assume that’s the 100% truth of what’s going to happen, when in most cases, it’s not. It’s one perspective, one possibility out of an infinite set.
Let’s say you’re going to experience something good.
You don’t need a deck of cards to tell you that. If something is going to happen to you in the future, you don’t need a ‘reading’ to tell you that.
Because it would happen anyway and you’d be able to deal with it and learn something from it.
Some people say:
“Well, I think they’re super accurate.”
I’m not saying they don’t work but there are a few things at play here:
So firstly, you have the ‘self-fulfilling prophecy.’
The self-fulfilling prophecy is when you think something’s going to happen and you believe in it so much so that you manifest them into your reality
You influence that more than you think.
Secondly, the entity may tell you something that was going to happen but put a slightly negative spin on it. For example, it will tell you how to react and what to do and it makes the situation worse.
Let’s say you will meet your soulmate but the reading tells you that you’re gonna meet a person that’s gonna shake your life up in a negative way.
But what if you needed that chaos to learn something about yourself that will help raise your consciousness?
You already missed that chance because you listened to the tarot reader.
You should stop relying on external forces and trust in your inner wisdom.
Trust that the universe is always working for you and you will be able to handle anything thrown at you.
It’s very tempting to try to know everything and try to control the circumstances but as you may have learned in spirituality, you start to receive the gifts of the universe when you let go and surrender.
“The moment of surrender is not when life is over, it’s when it begins.” – Marianne Williamson
How To Use Tarot Cards Safely
If you like tarot cards and tarot readings, I have some advice that I think I’ve not heard anybody talk about.
It’s not in the descriptions of tarot readers, it’s not mentioned anywhere.
The advice is something you’ve got to remember when you’re drawing a card.
In theory, the concept is that you’re connecting to the most likely possibility for your timeline, what you’re most likely to experience in the future.
Most people, when they draw a card, are in a negative headspace. They’re stressed, confused, they don’t know what to do and they need answers.
Maybe they’re angry, sad, upset, and they’re looking for a message that will cheer them up. They’re looking for a ‘future’ that they can look forward to.
“Why am I going through this? And what’s next?”
If you’re having a reading with that negative mindset, then you’re going to influence the message negatively.
Your feelings affect your vibration, the cards you draw, and the future you create. A lot of people don’t understand this.
If you want to know how to raise your vibrations, check out this free video masterclass.
So, when is the best time to do a Tarot reading?
The best time to do a Tarot reading is when you are completely relaxed and neutral.
You don’t want to be feeling or thinking one way or the other.
You want to be neutral because otherwise, you will influence the possibility of what will happen next.
Can You Learn How To Read Tarot Cards For Yourself?
You can learn how to read tarot cards and use them for yourself.
Just remember what we talked about here. If you think it helps you, then great! Just don’t rely on it as the all-encompassing truth.
Is Tarot Card Reading Astrology?
Tarot Card Reading is not astrology. Tarot readings aren’t as calculated as astrology since they are drawn at random.
Astrology is based on arithmetic and the exact positions of the sun, moon, and planets, but tarot may be interpreted differently for each and fluctuates depending on who is delivering the reading.
Are Tarot Cards Evil?
Tarot cards are not evil but they can be if you use them for evil purposes.
For example, you charge for tarot readings even if you know you’re not connecting to the astral realm or you give readings that could lead people astray.
Why Did I Throw My Tarot Cards?
I threw away my tarot cards because I learned that there are dangers with tarot card readings.
The first is that you’re not sure what kind of entity you’re communicating with because there are more negative entities in the 4fth dimension that are trying to keep you from ascending.
The second is that the tarot reader may not be connected to any beings but are only saying random messages based on their own beliefs and experiences.
Lastly, depending too much on tarot readings may sabotage your future. You are relying on something external instead of just letting go, trusting yourself, and trusting the universe.
You could still use tarot cards if you want. If you think that it’s helping you, then go for it.
Just make sure that you use it safely and that you don’t rely on it too much.
Remember that all the answers are within you.

Now you’ve learned why I threw my tarot cards and why you should too. What do you think about this? Are you still gonna use tarot cards or watch free tarot card readings?
