Benefits of Having a Friend Read Your Tarot Cards

Posted on May 12, 2016


We all need a little guidance sometimes. Guidance in love, in our careers or with our relationships. And we seek it out in different ways: therapists, churches, family … and sometimes we even need to turn to the stars. Psychics, readers and numerologists have become a common source of guidance, but let’s be honest; life is busy right now, and it’s not always as convenient to book a private reading as it would be to, say, dive into a self-help book in your spare time.

That’s why it’s beneficial to have a little help. A partner in your quest for self-understanding, such as a friend, on-call, who knows how to read Tarot cards for you — and trust us, there are even more benefits.

  1. Get free Tarot readings, anytime

  2. This is the most immediate reason it’s important to have someone in your inner circle who can read Tarot. You should still consult your daily horoscopes, charts, reports and guides, but in between those moments you may have detailed questions about your life, right now. Your on-call reader can provide the right guidance, right away.

    While not all Tarot readers are necessarily psychic, all readers worth their weight understand how to interpret their deck of Tarot cards. On your quest for enlightenment, it’s important to understand the bigger-picture benefits of astrological forecasts and guides, complemented by the immediacy that Tarot provides.

  3. Get specific answers to specific questions

  4. The Tarot answers specific and immediate questions, unlike astrology reports or charts. Want to know how he thinks your date went? Or if it’s going to go smoothly at the airport? A Tarot reading can be that specific. Having a friend on-call to read your cards and give you answers on your current situation comes in very handy. Charts and astrology reports generally deal with overall direction of your life, while Tarot cards help guide you in how to deal with bad news or less comfortable situations.

  5. Tarot helps with decision making

  6. Life stresses and day-to-day decisions can wear us out with stress. But tough-calls are much easier to make if you know someone with a deck of Tarot handy. The Tarot gives you the best course of action for your higher good, as long as you ask the right questions. Just a warning: you aren’t always going to like the answers the cards give you. But if you take the advice from the Tarot, you’ll find the answers and the decisions you make will be very rewarding and fulfilling.

  7. Uncover instant insight into dark secrets

  8. Tarot readings give you immediate insights: access to secrets, deception, untruths or even surprises that are coming your way. We all wake up once in awhile with a feeling that something is wrong. Or, conversely, we’ve all felt great and couldn’t figure out why. Who is being honest with you, who isn’t, and maybe even who is planning something special for you? A quick call your Tarot-reading friend can give you an answer in a New York minute. Somehow, the Tarot always knows, and never lies or holds back.

  9. Receive validation for answers already received

  10. When you need validation for a feeling or hunch, the Tarot is a helpful tool in your toolbox. With the exception of the court cards, each card in the Tarot deck is either light (to symbolize the miracles and blessings on their way to you) or dark (to symbolize the challenges you may cross). When it comes to seeking validation, all you need is a yes or no answer from the Tarot. Just ask, and if the card you pull symbolizes light, your answer is yes. If it symbolizes dark, your answer is no. Instant validation in any area in your life.

  11. Get answers to questions you didn’t even know you had

  12. Remember when we said the Tarot ‘never lies or holds back’? When you consult the Tarot, you get information — whether you want it or not. Many times we approach a reading with one question but wind up leaving with answers to problems we didn’t even know we had. To be honest, there will likely be times when you leave your Tarot reader’s house with a lack of answers to your immediate questions, but rather with answers to questions you hadn’t considered.

    It’s important to not get frustrated with a human response from a spiritual question. With Tarot, you’re always given the answers you need, even if you don’t know you need them. Be open and embrace the answers Tarot provides for you.

We all love our friends and support systems. But the friend who also reads Tarot holds a very special place. Not only do they offer stress relief, but also answers, guidance and direction.
