This is a big question I get asked frequently: Is Tarot Evil?
According to many religions: yes it is. In my experience: it is not. Ultimately, that is for you to decide.
Religion has borrowed a lot from occult rituals. If you examine the Catholic religion you will find many references to occultism. Easter, the body and blood of Christ and the altar set up are just a few examples.
Aside from those facts, religions have also been perpetrators of some horrible abuses from the Spanish Inquisition to the most recent Boston Church scandal. I find it hard to take moral advice from organizations that allow its leaders to abuse children. That’s me though.
Growing Up (TW:abuse)
I grew up Catholic. Weekend mass was the only constant in my young life. I found comfort and stability in the church when I could not find it in my own life. I attended mass, was an altar server and received Confirmation into the Roman Catholic Church. This does not mean I am a saint.
On the contrary, I have strayed on my path. Yet my relationship with God was never so damaged that I stopped having faith.
My devotion to God goes back to being a skinny kid, living in a trailer on a farm in Texas.
My stepdad was a violent alcoholic who enjoyed beating those around him whenever he would drink. It was during one of his rampages that I devoted my soul to God.
I went into my room when I was 6, got on my knees and prayed to God that my stepdad wouldn’t hurt me. I prayed fervently to God, promising to live my life in servitude to It if I was spared the beating.
I was spared and my journey to help further God’s mission began.
Connection to God
From that day on, I had a deep connection to the Highest Power. At different dark points in my life, God even sent messengers to me with messages and warnings.
When I started reading Tarot, I wondered if God would be upset. I wondered if what I was doing was wrong. Recalling the teachings of the church and the words of the congregants: magic is evil.
Then I realized that God has always made it clear to me, when It is displeased with my actions. So I continued to hone my Tarot reading skills.
I have now been reading Tarot for 5 years. In that time, I have pulled myself out of a depression. I have avoided bad business deals. I developed my intuition further. I also began to help others through their difficult periods.
My friends and co-workers heard how I used the Tarot to receive guidance when no one around had any answers. I told them of finding answers to my questions that no one around could relate to.
They listened as I recounted times when my cards warned of shady situations and how those situations ended up manifesting! They were intrigued as I told them how I avoided being caught in a scam.
These stories affected them. They wondered if the Tarot could help them too. But I wasn’t ready to read for others so I waited.
It wasn’t until last year that I started to take on clients.
Since then I have seen people change careers, start new businesses and get control of their lives. All with the guidance provided by the Tarot.
Is Tarot Evil?
I do not believe so. I believe that God wants all of us to use the tools we have available to make the most of our lives.
Ultimately, the answer to the question lies with the individual. Each person must decide what is right for them.
If you are considering consulting a Tarot reader, remember that what you do can remain private. If the only thing stopping you from getting some clear answers to your questions, is other people’s opinions on the method: there is nothing wrong with keeping the reading private.
