Ever tried to predict something in a tarot reading and wondered when it will come to pass?
Or maybe you’ve read tarot for someone else and they really wanted to know the timing of something.
Has that happened to you before?
Does the thought of not knowing make you nervous?
Do you avoid predictive readings so that you don’t have to give a direct answer?
I used worry about these things, too.
And I was often confused about them, because so many people use tarot for predictive purposes, and yet it’s common to be discouraged from using tarot for predictions at all.
“Tarot can’t do this, and it can’t do that.”
But is that true?
I don’t believe it is.
In fact, the very first tarot reading I ever had was a predictive reading – and the messages I was given that day were still coming true 10 years later.

Whenever there’s change in the air, such as talk of important astrological transits, it’s normal to wonder: “How will this affect me?”
We often turn to tarot, astrology and other divinations to predict what’s around the corner. It’s not unusual to worry about whether you are making the wrong decision, or to worry about where your future is headed.
I find that whether you’re clear on your own direction, or you’re still trying to figure out your life’s path, uncertainty will always be a companion to some degree.
