Ask a Tarot Reader: Why didn’t my reading come true?

This is another post in the “Ask a Tarot Reader” series. If you have a question for me that you’d like to see featured here, please email me at tarrytowntarot@gmail.com, Subject line: “Ask a Tarot Reader”.

Some readings, we’re really into the nitty-gritty, and I’m flinging tarot cards and speaking truth: yes, I would even say I’ve been on fire with my predictions. Predictions (the type that are out of left field, bold of lightning moments) happen occasionally, but truly, that’s not my style of reading normally. I’m much more of a “holding the mirror up” reader than incense wafting and long-buried secrets revealed reader.

Other readings? It’s more like this:

Well, at least it FEELS that way. (and more along the educated guesses rather than using stereotypes to “predict” the future… thanks for feeding into the mythos of the charlatan reader, Dave Chappelle! *annoyed look*)

Thankfully the “Educated Guess Line” feeling doesn’t happen often, because what is there to guess? My job is to read the cards that come up. No guessing necessary. Yes, I’m oversimplifying the complex art of reading tarot, but truly, isn’t that what tarot boils down to? “Read the damn cards,” as my friend and fellow reader Courtney Weber would say.

While it’s a rarity, the question of “Why didn’t my reading come true?” has been asked of me and of my fellow tarot reading colleagues. It’s normally asked as a hypothetical question, or asked of me from someone that went to a different reader than me, but still… it’s asked, and I’m here to give answers. Being asked this question is not the reason that I shy away from the word prediction… it just simply isn’t my reading style, most of the time. There are several reasons why a predictive tarot reading doesn’t pan out. I have listed them here from most likely to least likely. You may be surprised by the answers… Continue Reading

Why I Write

journals

I was tagged for this post by Amelia Quint of The Midheaven back in September. Why do I write? Read on.

When I was around ten years old, I wrote my very first book, “The Helping Hands Club”, that was a blatant rip-off of the Babysitters’ Club series by Ann M. Martin, which I was obsessed with. I was told (by my mother, I think) that I was slow to read and write developmentally… that I started later than what was considered normal. Apparently I made up for that time, going from slow start to aspirations of literary genius (or plagiarism) by the tender age of ten!Continue Reading
