What was the most dramatic/meaningful reading you ever did? (Not necessarily the most accurate.)?
Ha, I liked that it says “not necessarily the most accurate”. In general there really isn’t a lot of drama in my life, so naturally my readings are also rather… calm. But let’s see what I can come up with.
Probably the most dramatic reading in my life was the first one that I ever had. I know I didn’t do the reading, but I’m still including it here because of the drama factor. The reader did a basic Celtic Cross spread, and the outcome card was a 10 of Swords. When she flipped it over, she literally gasped and looked at me with a little bit of horror in her eyes. She may have just been trying to play it up for overall entertainment factor (for my friend, sitting by as an onlooker), but I don’t know for sure. She did also seem just generally concerned and invested in the reading as a whole.
In case you’re wondering, it was not as dramatic as the made it out to be. At the time, she asked if I had been betrayed by the person in question, and I hadn’t. However, years later, I realized that the person in question was actually someone else, and yes I had been betrayed by them! Hmph.
I think the most meaningful reading I did was for a friend a few years ago. Her family was going through a really rough time (lots of drama, she was feeling overwhelmed). I did a general 3-card reading for her and it was very accurate and insistent about a couple of points that she was trying not to acknowledge. At the end of the reading, she was still in denial and wasn’t sure if the cards were “for real.” So I suggested that we do one more. Draw one more card and see what it says. If it was wrong, then she could dismiss it altogether.
We drew that one more card and it hit home so hard, for another aspect of the whole situation. For her, it was reassurance that the cards were telling her the truth, and she knew what she needed to do. For me, it was confirmation that I was on the right track with my tarot practice.
