Can any one read? Are there rsiks? A FEW TAROT FACTS

There is , like all things, much information about the tarot, one can quickly become overwhelmed with details. Apparently there is much confusion and misinformation as well. Much of the beliefs that are founded in error, I like to think stem from a sense of romanticism , such as that the Tarot is as old as Ancient Egypt or that the gypsies used and brought the Tarot to civilization. It seems that neither of these ideas are based on any recordable fact. I personally don't need to believe that they are of ancient origin , I know that they work.

They are a tool to be used by physics. This brings us to the question, Can any one read the cards? and I think I need to add effectively?

Well yes and no. Do I believe that we all have latent psychic ability? Yes I do. And it ,like most gifts or talents, needs to be developed. If someone has the interest, it is likely that they have an untapped ability. This seems like a good barometer to access if someone may have talent. So with proper dedication and work, those who have the potential can learn to read the cards. However, sadly, many people wish to read the cards for profit , their main motive may be impure. This would effect the overall energy and outcome of the cards. during their readings. In addition, others may wish to read the cards, because they have already begun to explore the ancient arts of Wicca and Tarot seems like a natural addition to their studies., as it is. There are many books available that teach a practitioner how to use the Tarot in spell casting for example. And still , there are those who are pursing a line of the black arts and wish to add the Tarot to their arsenal of weapons.
PURE MOTIVE NEEDED to read the cards effectively
I am certain that when false and impure motives are behind the Tarot , one can not read the cards. A wall of protection is invoked for a reason. There are incarnate beings of malevolent intent waiting in the wings to swoop in and mess with the lives of Gods creatures. There are beings, even demons that are looking for opportunities to do their work, which is in destroying creation and giving the beings of light difficult and changeling times. In other words, if you have impure motives, you open the door for evil spirits to channel threw you and give harmful information to your poor client. At best, when you open yourself up during a reading you run the risk of possession.
Warnings never read your own cards, the spirits will mess with you. Watch out for doing repeative readings for another within a short period of time. Do not do another reading on the same subject during a reading because the client does not like the outcome you run a substantial risk of misinformation. It irritates the energies that you are working with that they were not listened to the first time.
