Tarot Gives Financial Guidance

So, of course, disclaimer disclaimer, I am NOT saying that you should use the Tarot for your financial guidance. If you have a financial or money-related question, you should go to a licensed professional. However, I would just like to share a story about how that could actually work.

I went to a hot spring in Nagano, North Japan, with my cousins a few years ago. One of my cousins is what you could call an in-the-bone socialist, she has lived on a beach in Thailand in her bikini for 5 years, for example. So when I gave her a Tarot reading, I was shocked, yes shocked to see the 4 of Pentacles, Queen of Pentacles and King of Pentacles all there on the table. I told her that I thought her reading was wrong, but she said: Just go ahead and tell me what you see.

So, I said: “Turns out, you’re a money-grabbing whore after all!” No, that’s not what I said, nor even what I thought, but I just slipped that in the story, in case it gave you a bit of a laugh. What I actually said was: “Looks like you have some financial issues on your mind, you are thinking about saving and investing for the future, maybe budgeting and making financial plans of all sorts.” She agreed, and said that that was why she had asked me for a Tarot reading, because she was thinking of getting investments and a retirement plan, now her daughter was getting older and she was planning for the future.

Incredible, I thought, that the Tarot can be that pin-point accurate, that we can get answers to even our most worldly questions using the Tarot. And THAT’S when I decided to become a professional Tarot card reader, in case you were wondering.

Talking of which, yesterday this happened:

Thank you as ever to my super-sweet Tokyo Tarot Meetup Group. We completed Lesson 5 of 8 of our Tarot course yesterday. I asked my students for a reading about a rather scary letter from my local council in the UK, and what I should do about it. Should I call and confess all, or should I try to brush everything under the carpet?

What’s your interpretation?
