How many Tarot Card Readers do you know, like personally? My bet would be none (and no I did not need to read my Tarot Cards to predict this)

When people find out I am a Tarot Card Reader the reactions I get are, shall I say, amusing.

After the complete silence that falls post me introducing myself, an up and down scan follows (no, wings, a halo or horns or even fangs just won’t pop out, no matter how much you will them to) Post which I am questioned if I have special powers/ was born with this knowledge/ practice black magic/ witchcraft, and the like.
My answer is, and will always be, NO, disappointing quite a few.

Misconceptions CardTalkWithMayuri

If I had a rupee for each of the times I was asked, ‘Tell me what I am thinking right now?’ I would be on the Forbes Billionaire list. Every year.

My 1sttime Clients usually expect to see me swathed in long, flowing robes, with a dozen bangles and bracelets jangling at my wrists. Sitting in a dark room with fumes from burning incense creating a smoky and mysterious setting. And of course, a Crystal Ball keeping me company.

They are a tad disappointed to walk into my well-aired and well-lit office and see me dressed in smart semi-formal wear.
Funnily enough, I am also often asked if ‘I eat non-vegetarian food’ (yes, I do) ‘pray all day’(surely not!) ‘get angry’ (do I have a temper or what!) and ‘use foul language’ (huh!?) and the likes.

There is almost always a long, grilling question and answer session by my clients before we start the actual Reading starts.
And I see to it that I answer each and every question asked with utmost patience because hey, Misconceptions must be cleared, or they cause misinformation.
