I started reading tarot cards for people in 2003. Before that I was mystified by what tarot cards were and how they came to be. I once did a ougie board after school in the classroom with a group of classmates when I was 12 but the board spelt out goat meaning the devil and us kids we all ran out of the classroom scared witless. None of us ever contemplated doing that again and I am glad as by us children innocently playing the ougie board we could have unwittingly brought evil spirits to hound us in this world. We got off lightly. I never did that again!
I would get tarot readings done by different fortune tellers when I was at college or studying to be a graduate and then even after that. I was fascinated by divination and the occult but too scared to learn to do tarot readings myself and plus I did not think I had the skills to do it. A few years before 2003 I started seeing one tarot reader. She was very good. I could never understand how she knew what was coming ahead of me in my future as my past was a mixture of things that had not made me happy. I wanted to move on but did not know how to. She taught me how to do tarot readings as she had prepared lessons to learn tarot that all her customers could buy.
My profession in my twenties was a Lettings Manager in London and I did that for 23 years. It was very difficult managing tenants and property maintenance so after spending half my life doing that I decided I had had enough and packed that in. I sold up shop and moved on. I decided to put my heart and soul into my tarot readings which was what I started with actually as I did my degree in Psychology. I was always interested in this field. I had worked with elderly and mentally retarded and handicapped children and adults before I worked in the letting field.
Building a business is never easy especially when you do not have the background for it. I should have studied business management to degree level or learnt to become a programmer as it seems nowadays that is where the mega bucks are apart from the accountants, lawyers and the usual NHS profession which none of us can live without.
If you are thinking whether you should learn to become a tarot reader or not I would say the answer is yes as it is highly rewarding. You will get to meet and speak to many different types of people with varied problems. Some are obsessed with their careers and getting to the top and some just want a family and not much more. Then there are those who have suffered a tragedy in their lifetime like myself but we all get through it as it is survival of the fittest after all. I am a survivor and I think you are too because you are reading this.
Coming back to the question: Is becoming a tarot reader satisfying and does it make mega bucks? I have found becoming a tarot reader very satisfying as I have helped many people get back their pride and self esteem and are able to move on with their life leaving the bad times behind. This includes following the right career pathway as well as the correct passage to love. There are evil powers trying to pull us down throughout our life and the angels of heaven pull us out.
I am sure you have all experienced a deja vu experience where we see something and recognise that we had already seen that event either before or in our dreams. Making mega bucks is not why I decided to become a tarot reader and if you think like that then you can never be a good tarot reader. Remember the reason why you wanted to learn to do tarot readings. You can make mega bucks if you diversify and get other psychics to do your work and take a commission from each booking or you can dwell on writing your own ebooks of knowledge and on learning how to do tarot readings, writing blogs and writing articles constantly for the newspaper or other media so you are picked up by many new customers. Can you put in the hard work to make the mega bucks?
I wrote this to make you think whether this is the pathway you want to take? It is not easy to make a lot of money in this field without putting in years of hard graft. It takes a long time also to learn the meanings of the 78 tarot cards in a tarot deck and then to apply the knowledge to real customers. I studied the Rider Waite Tarot Cards as this is my favourite deck. You need to spend a lot of quiet time in a kind of semi meditation state. You must open your mind to the cards and fathom out the story the cards are trying to tell you. I wanted to rock your world and make you realise that I really enjoy reading tarot cards for people and I want you to enjoy it too. I would say to everybody give it a shot if you enjoy helping people. We are well aware that the body needs help when we are ill or when we get old. But what about the mind? It also needs consoling and counselling. Some people are able to manage this aspect themselves whereas there are others that don't trust their intuition or gut feelings to follow what is so clearly the right pathway. I would not call the latter weak but I would say that those people have intentionally decided to find out what is the right pathway to take? So which is better? Both are correct as they are leading their life the way they feel best. Learning to read the tarot cards are like learning a new language. It is a language of pictures and the tarot reader is assessing meanings to the pictures and relaying it back to the querent to make them understand what the cards are trying to tell him or her.
In answer to my question: Is becoming a tarot reader satisfying and does it make mega bucks? Tarot reading is a personal thing so I can only speak for myself. I find it very satisfying and no it does not make me mega bucks but then I did not go into doing this to make big money. I would like to share my knowledge and powers to help people. We come into this world with nothing and we leave this world with nothing but memories of us remain. What type of a legacy would you like to leave? I would hope to be remembered for what I gave back to this world. Wouldn't you?
