Do Tarot Cards Tell The Truth?
When you say ‘tarot cards’ to most people, they immediately envision a woman at a carnival, in a dark room foretelling the inevitable end of the world.
However, the cards are actually very different, as for a start they are not designed specifically to tell the future and they are not always negative either. Tarot can be read by anyone, whether they are a professional or not, but what most spiritual believers question is how accurate the cards actually are. Do tarot cards tell the truth?
Well first of all — you really need to understand the Tarot and why most tarot readings are fundementally flawed (which we’ll get to in a moment).

How Tarot Works
Tarot packs are made up of 78 cards split into four different decks — wands, swords, cups and pentacles. They can be read by anyone, but practice will always help to give a reliable reading. You must select the cards which you feel drawn to (they are upside down so you can’t see them) and then place them in a specific spread which will show the combinations of cards for your past, present and future readings.
The point of tarot is not to ‘see into the future’ as such, it is mainly to give you advice on a past, present and future situation which may present itself. As most readers will tell you, decisions should not be based on the answers the cards give you, but instead should be used as a guide for you to make your own decision.
Factors Which Affect the Accuracy of the Reading
When trying to get an accurate answer from the cards, it is important that you visit a qualified, experienced reader. Start by doing a quick internet search to find a reader who gives a balance between reasonable pricing and quality reading. Going for a reader who charges $35-$50 per session is a good idea if you want a more accurate answer and you may also want to read any reviews before booking a visit.
This part is where most tarot readings fall down.
If your question is too narrow and doesn’t understand how the Tarot provides us guidance then it makes the guidance provided as useful as flipping a coin.
Asking a valid and specific question is also important for receiving accurate advice from the cards. Most readers recommend avoiding questions with yes or no answers, as these would be difficult to interpret and say that, instead, you should find a question which is specific and personal, but that could also have several possible answers.
If you are someone who likes to read their own cards, then selecting a pack which uses images that you can personally relate with is crucial in gaining an accurate answer. If your cards contain pictures which you can understand and that connect with you, then it will be easier to interpret the advice that the cards are giving you and the answer will, therefore, be more reliable.
Do Tarot Cards Tell the Truth?
So in summary, if you want to obtain the most accurate answer possible, then making sure that the three factors which affect this are in order is crucial. If you have the right spiritual mindset and are well-informed on how to read the cards, then you will almost always be given a truthful and honest answer. However, this doesn’t mean to say that you should rely on tarot for the solution to all problems, you should merely use their answer as a guiding force.
