I want to get my tarot cards read, but i'm too scared, why?

I’ve always been curious about it, but i hear things about it being evil and having negative effects. I was raised a Christian, and as much as i like to believe there is something out there, not really God, but something out there, everytime i want to get my cards read, my religion kicks in. Any info on the myths of tarot reading. I’ve had some problems lately and thin that maybe this will give me some guidance on what to do.


  1. I know why I’m too scared to get them read, its because of scared of the bad things that the future holds for me. But either way i wouldn’t want to know what the future has in store for me, otherwise life would be boring.
    Maybe you scared of what bad things the future has in store for you as well.

  2. There is nothing evil about tarot cards or readings. What matters is what you DO with the information you get.
    Educate yourself. Our culture tries so hard to make the occult seem “scary” when it is not. Even the Death card NEVER means actual death. The cards are more of a tool to help you understand yourself, psychologically.

  3. Having negative effects is bull to me.
    Some tarot cards symbolize bad things, but getting them read doesnt have negative effects. Some tarot cards symbolize death, bad luck, etc, so if you get those read, then consider to get bad luck. Many good things come out of the cards though. They simply describe your future, thats all.

  4. Tarot cards are interesting and fun, but I wouldn’t consider them magical or evil.
    They are just cards.
    You might want to learn a bit about what Tarot is first.

  5. Hi. I use to read the tarot cards. I was given gifts from God that Satan used for his advantage. I realize that now more than you know, or more than you could possibly believe. My punishment is quite severe, and I am responsible for anyone I gave the wrong impression of Christianity to. I definitely advise you not to have your fortune told, or to dabble in any occultic practice. The Bible talks about this subject in detail, in numerous references and it is not to be fooled with. I beg you to trust me on this, and live the purest life as instructed throughout the Bible. It’s easy to justify one method of fortune telling as being okay where another isn’t. That is Satan lying to us, so he can justify our sins to God and wreak havock on our lives if we decide to change. This is something you do not want to experience.I hope you can be one I have made it up to. Love, Ivy

  6. That’s a natural feeling. It’s not really fear or guilt so much as it is tension. The idea of ghosts, psychics and the paranormal don’t give us the same feelings as God, grace and angels. The idea that we have that sort of power is overwhelming. Whether you’re having your palm or cards read or playing with a Oujii Board. You just have to remember that it’s just an experience.

  7. Well, there is nothing evil about tarot cards, or even anything occult. Tarot cards are, in fact, playing cards!
    They were created in the mid 15th century, commissioned by the Duke of Milan for the celebrations for his daughter, Bianca Visconti’s marriage into the Sforza family. A set of picture cards was added to the regular Latin suited game pack of the time. These extra cards took as their theme, not an occult philosophy, or any magical symbols but a traditional Christian triumph procession. Hence they were called trionfi, meaning triumphs, and from which we get our word trump – it was the invention of tarot that marked the introduction of trumps into card games! Some historians suspect that they specifically represent the triumph procession held to celebrate Bianca’s birth in 1425, which certainly seems fitting.
    Contrary to common myth, the church never objected to tarot cards, they recognized them as being both Christian and for card games. While out of context of their time and culture, many images, such as a Female Pope, seem exotic, mysterious and even heretical. However, they were all staples of Christian art of the time. For 350 years they were used for nothing but card games, at one time being the most popular form of card game throughout continental Europe. The games are still played with great popularity but in the English speaking world, most people have grown up with the occult myths that began in France toward the end of the 18th century.
    The point of all this is that divination with tarot cards is no different than divination with regular playing cards, dominos, tea leaves or knuckle bones. Do they scare you? They don’t scare me but I personally have difficulty taking them seriously – you must make up your own mind.

  8. Hello dtjoez
    Your fear arrives from the munbo jumbo that the media & religion throws at you. They are not evil.
    Having a tarot reading done or visiting any type of psychic can give you help, guidance & insight to your issues.

  9. Tarrot cards are bad news like ouija boards, i mean its not guaranteed something supernatural will happen but it might but if it does your opening yourself up to bad spirits and stuff to come into your life.
    I know people who use to mess around with the occult and stuff and it wrecked there lives (they’re Christians now) but they both describe messed up things (they didn’t know each other) , and one of them one of there friends who was with them ended up in a insane asylum the other committed suicide. I’m not saying thats going to happen but honestly anything like that is bad news and can wreck your life.
    If you want a supernatural experience or are looking for something more seek Jesus, find a good church , one that believes in spiritual gifts and ask them to pray and prophesy over you , but don’t touch anything to do with the occult, its bad news!
    its not that tarrot cards or ouji boards have any power in them themselves, they’re just pieces of paper or cardbaord, but spiritually speaking its like putting a big neon sign in the air trying to attract evil spiritual forces that exist and saying come in to my life.

  10. im just the opposite of you. Im scared to do readings. But my friend says to give it a try. AND I guess your just scared something bad is going to happen(trust me i have the same problem)

  11. Hey,
    I felt exactly the same way you do, I was brought up a Christian but I don’t know what I believe in and I’m kind’ve just searching for answers. This year I’ve done some online tarot things and paid to have a general reading done online. I must say, the person who did it for me was completely 100% accurate in describing everything of my inner thoughts and emotions – scarily amazing! I didn’t quite understand what the 4 cards meant really. They were; the tower, four of cups, six of swords and the sun.
    I’ve not had any supernatural occurrences (thankfully!!!) but my mum had a beautiful, absolutely adorable dream dog, she only had him 2 weeks and last night my dad was walking him and he somehow managed to get out his collar and got hit by a car. He died instantly. I’m so devastated. Not sure whether that’s anything to do with the tarot cards or just a really crappy coincidence but nothing like that has ever happened before, shit things happen all the time but I guess you can never really know for sure whether it’s dabbling in tarot or just life being a bitch. Just be careful.

  12. The Bible is a fabrication of the truth. A metaphor taken literally. Those behind it and those on higher seats, knows this. Religion is control and order. The occult is the natural way. There is no white Jesus man born in a black continent cooning to save the world, till then do as thy will just be sure to repent. Sounds like crap. It’s a big people fairy tale. Have any of you studied anything other than the Bible, like Kemet…and Thoth? Curious to know.
    Tarot? Evil?
    I guess so are our dreams…our instincts, intuitive thoughts, and premonitions…SMH. the Bible teaches you not to think for yourself. Limits your natural gifts and see them as evil if utilized. SMH….
