Intuition, as defined by the Dictionary: The ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning.
Among the many misconceptions about Tarot Card Reading there are, a major one that is brought up almost in every other Tarot Card Reading I conduct. That is that I have ‘a great Intuition’.
Now, I have no clue how people assume that, but it is not true. Tarot Cards are not read, nor should they be read, intuitively. Also, if I had great intuition, why would I go through the trouble of learning Tarot Card Reading, and memorizing what each of the 78 Tarot Cards meant, as the process was akin to going back to school.
After going through the tedious and tough ‘study’ process of each of the Tarot Cards, I find it difficult to believe anyone who proclaims that they just woke up one fine morning and realized that Tarot Reading is a ‘gift’ bestowed upon them, or that they ‘just took to the cards’.
When someone comes to me for a Tarot Card Reading they have questions they need answers to, pertaining to serious issues in their life. They place their complete trust in the Tarot and in me to guide them right. Do you think I would take this big responsibility and help them out based on my ‘Intuition’? Not at all.
Over the years I have trained myself to prep before each Reading. A quick prayer, deep breathing, and literally a blank mind without any assumptions, judgment, or bias are what get me ready for the Reading. The knowledge of each of the Cards is what guides me to interpret them, there is no place for Intuition.
