In my daily readings using Tarot Cards as part of my divination tool kit I often hear the same old misconceptions and superstitions regarding the Tarot. These range from being evil and the work of the devil to its just bad luck to even go near them. Nearly always these myths come handed down from someone who either hasn’t had any experience of the tarot or they have read it somewhere. The art of reading tarot goes back many many years, prior to the invention of Tarot cards folk would often read plain old playing cards, I doubt there would have been much resistance to those. I can hand on heart tell you that I have never ever in over 25 years of reading Tarot had any of the myths I mention below ever come true. Tarot is simply a tool, a divination tool as we call it. Here below I deal with the main misconceptions regarding the Tarot, there may well be others.
