Should You Learn Tarot With the Rider Waite-Smith Only?

We feature a lot of different decks on the Tarot Elements Fan Page on Facebook and it’s an integral part of our community there. ALL of the interpretations given by Friends are pretty awesome and make me glad everyday that I get to read such wonderful insights.

Those insights came from many sources to the Tarot Lovers who shared them and from the many different tarot decks that they use daily. We mainly feature the Rider Waite-Smith Tarot Deck and its many clones on the Fan Page and it got me wondering about where they, and every other Tarot Lover, began their tarot journey – was it with the Rider Waite-Smith deck or one of its cousins?

Is Your Life Pre-Determined by a Greater Force?

Those of you who know me well enough know that life has been hard these past few months. Well, quite a few months really, right back into last year, and quite possibly before that.

All the plans I’ve made, the things I want to do, keep getting stalled. When I think things are moving again, the rug gets pulled from under me and I’m back to where I started. Road block after road block gets in my way. I think of a way out and boom. Can’t go that way.

Why, when I think things are moving forward again, do they come to a complete stop? Is there a reason for this, apart from another Mercury Retrograde?

What a great question!

Tarot Elements friend, Jennifer Mitchell, recently asked this question. I thought this deserved some real discussion and with Jennifer’s permission, brought the debate over to the blog.

This is what Jennifer asked:

Does knowing the outcome of a Tarot reading change the outcome of the subject of the reading? Generally, does knowing the future unavoidably change it?

You’re Gonna Have to Face it, You’re Addicted to Tarot…

We’ve all seen client’s addicted to Tarot readings – they come back time and again but way too often to be healthy. It’s one of the reasons a large number of Tarot readers have a code of ethics, to protect the vulnerable, and themselves from over-use, or, dare I say it, abuse of their services; and perhaps one of the reasons many Psychic Lines are constantly busy.

I find that a fascinating subject and one I will perhaps write about after this post. What I’m interested in talking about today is Tarot Readers who are addicted to having tarot readings themselves.

I have a couple of friends* who currently don’t seem able to make a decision without either:
