What If Your Cards Don’t Make Sense?

By Caroline :: :: 3 comments

Do you sometimes find that it seems like your cards don’t make sense? You asked a great question and were well prepared but somehow the reading didn’t make sense. Why does this happen?

I find that there are a couple of reasons why this can happen in a reading.

Sometimes the cards can get scrambled if you haven’t cleared the energy from previous readings. You can quickly reset them by shuffling or clearing them. Click here for some ideas on how to clear your cards.

The cards can also stop giving you answers if you ask the same question over and over again. If you don’t like the answer you received, it’s better to ask next how you can change the outcome, rather than to repeat the question.

Finally the cards can seem totally obtuse until after events have occurred. Then when we look back at the reading, we see what they meant, and it can all seem so obvious.

This is a good way to learn cards, so if you don’t understand your reading, write it down and come back to it later with the benefit of hindsight :)

Cards became popular in Europe during the renaissance of the 12th century. Some people just used cards for trick taking games and gambling, but some also knew the cards had a spiritual quality and could be used to pass on knowledge and share wisdom. Cards were perfect because the ideas were communicated by their images and symbolism, and so could be understood even if you could not read or write.
