Q:  What are card rumors and misconceptions I should avoid?

A: Don’t fall into the trap of accessing popular modern dogma to your tarot readings.  Just because they used a specific card attribute in a movie doesn’t mean that they got it right.

Upright vs Reversed: Generally is what it is… for example if the upright card means you should jump into this new venture with both feet, the revered may mean don’t count your ducks before they have hatched. Not all tarot card readers read reversed cards differently.

Death means someone will die!!!! No, no that is not what that card means… Yes, it does mean the end of something, but mortal death is rarely what it is alluding to. Upright can be there is a clear ending to a situation while reversed tends to mean that you are at a crossroads and need to make a decision.

The Lovers- bow-chicha-bow-wow! No, stop that… The Lovers appearing for you does not mean a new partner, blah blah blah. What it most likely means is that there is some sort of duality and the cooperation is needed to help.

Oh crap it’s The Devil!!! Yes, there is cause for alarm with this card, no you are not going to Hell. Well, even if you are, I’m not qualified to judge you. Upright this card may mean frustration with a situation. You have the means to free yourself if you are willing to do the work. Reversed can mean you need to look more internally than externally to figure out what is boxing you in.
