Are Tarot Cards Bad?

Legacy of the Divine Tarot

Does one speak to spirits when using tarot cards? Do tarot cards open one up to bad spirits? Do they attract negative spirits? Does the tarot have anything to do with spirits at all? Are tarot cards bad?

A deck of tarot cards are made of paper and ink, nothing more. There's nothing magical or evil within them. Tarot cards are a tool, not a doorway into the spirit world.

Any evil projected into a deck of tarot cards comes from the handler, not the cards themself.

The card you see is the High Priestess. She represents intuitive awareness, the inner voice, and tapping into a higher power. This is what you use when you do a reading using the tarot cards. This is within each of us, the tarot is simply a tool to help access those abilities, a guide for accessing our journey on the physical plane.

tarot cards are definetely not bad.
I want your opinion on this:
I got my tarot cards when I was thirteen, and found them very useful as a medium of extracting information. I had many psycics in my family, and I used the cards to verify my own thoughts.
My mother would have none of it. she found them and confiscated them, saying that this is evil, and I cannot do this.
I am now seventeen

Rita, Thanks for stopping by.

I'm not sure what your asking my opinion on. Tarot is very useful for verifying your thoughts, and realizing things you basically know, but need to hear it from another source.

Thank you for posting this. I think people need to be reminded that Tarot is simply a tool that we use to get in touch with our Higher Selves. I recently met someone who swore up and down that the Tarot "attracts something" (as in something malevolent)and that I should stay away from it. Meanwhile I've been using the Tarot for years and I have never found that I've "attracted" anything, save wisdom.

Thank you so much for stopping by. It's amazing the different responses I receive as a tarot reader. I'm glad you've found the wisdom within the cards.

Best wishes,
