A lot of people turn to the spiritual to discover deep truths about themselves, and often they don’t come away disappointed. In fact, one tarot card reader notes that 90% of clients have reported that they found her readings helpful.
Still, if you’re like most people, you’re probably wondering: are tarot cards real? Not the existence of the cards themselves, of course, but whether or not the readings from them actually can tell any truth or whether they’re just for fun.
Here, we’re going to answer that question and learn more about the importance of tarot cards.
When we ask whether or not something is real, we’re actually asking whether or not something is factually accurate. In truth, reality entirely varies from person to person. We each observe the world and draw our own conclusions based on what we see, hear, and do.
So when we get tarot readings, we can’t say that they aren’t accurate. Whatever we see or hear at these readings is an observation of the world like any other. In this way, tarot is definitely real.
One of the main reasons that tarot is real is because it inspires thought. One of the coolest things about a tarot reading is that even though there’s not a scientific founding for them, they are broad enough that they make people think about their own lives. Usually, the readings are broad enough that they’re applicable to a situation the person is in.
After these fortunes are told, the listener thinks about what was said. This can connect to aspects of their life that they haven’t thought about enough, leading to a fresh outlook on themselves and the world. This can change the person’s course of action, which can change the future.
Another reason that tarot is real is that it’s for everyone! People of any race, gender, orientation, or religion can get a free tarot reading to get a new perspective on their life.
Tarot brings people together. They can discuss what as told to them and all go to get readings together. This sparks a lot of conversations and makes sure people have a fun night out together.
So, back to the big question… are tarot cards real? That depends on how you’re defining reality. But since tarot cards can make a person think about their own life and lead to realizations, we certainly think so.
