Thee most feared cards...?

When a person consults the deck it is important that any good reader introduces the cards in a way that places the Tarot into the light that it is meant to emulate. The Tarot is neither good nor bad, it does not judge and it does not criticize. A good reader should hold the same qualities, they are neither judge nor jury, the job of the reader is one of pure interpretation, and as far as one reader goes from another, any good reader will have a unique way of understanding the cards and getting the point across. A good reader is both intuitive and positive, they will take a single issue and work around the outcomes giving advice on how to act in the present for a desired future outcome. As far as future cards go, if these show difficulty then a good reader will be able to highlight the present actions that will help to avoid such difficulty. Often, an inexperienced reader will stick to the meaning that are given in books and provide a rather incomplete reading that leaves the sitter a little bewildered. Here is two examples of the most feared cards and what they actually mean.

The Death Card: This conjures up images of abrupt endings, life threatening outcomes and heartache. What the card actually means is CHANGE. The ability to change a situation for the better, or a change of finance, love or employment. A welcome breath of fresh air within a stale situation or the turning of one event into another. Psysical Death, no, this is not what this card is about.

And again, The Devil; conjuring images of guilt, passionate mayhem and disaster. The only thing that this card is actually begging for is a change of ideas. A move away from a stagnant situation or a highlight into the inner working of a fraught relationship. The Devl can appear anywhere within our lives and as a card he only highlights those areas that we are caught or trapped in.

So, the most feared cards are often the ones that teach us the most....

They are not to be feared but to be embraced :)
