You see, when I did Tarot readings, I told anyone who wanted one, the cards aren’t magic, they’re pretty much parts of a story that’s roughly applicable to anyone. So what the reading is doing is basically working as a kick start to getting to see your situation from another angle, to give a twist to your imagination.
And still folks thought the cards were talking just about them. Whatever, I never told you that.
If I did any more, I’d say they were a tool for cold reading, which is pretty much the same as what I said above. It’s by no means useless, if it kicks folks out of self pitying “I can’t deal with this” attitudes.
It’s like John diamond said about most new age cures: the value is in having someone talk to you about your problems in a non-judgemental way. It’s not quite the placebo effect, you’re actually doing someone a favour by talking to them and listening to them. But it’s damn close.
Am I the only one who ever did this? FlimFlam free tarot readings?
