7 Tarot Readings by People Who Have No Idea How to Read Tarot Cards

I saw this shared via Buzzfeed and it was so hilarious, I had to share it here. Click the photo to see them all:

Recently, in a state of Mercury Retrograde-induced anxiety, BuzzFeed writers Rachel Sanders and Alanna Okun offered to give Tarot readings to fellow staff. The caveat: neither of them were remotely familiar with Tarot.

Rachel and Alanna were given a basic primer in three-card spreads by fellow staff member Katie Heaney, who has (some!) experience reading Tarot. They were told to have their subjects shuffle and cut the deck, and to then draw one card each for the subject’s Present, Past, and Future.

And then they just…made some shit up based on the pictures.

Afterward, to make up for the sham prophecies our subjects were given, Katie gave them a real reading, using the same cards. See if you can tell the difference. (You should definitely be able to tell the difference.)

My first reaction to the reading was WOW. Your words captured a theme woven into my life right now. The reading has emboldened me to take back my power and inspired me to research some books, get back to meditating and provided a focus.
