Many times during a tarot card reading session, we encounter someone who likes to do their own tarot card reading. Is this a good idea? Some will emphatically say no, while others may agree it does not really matter. The real issue however does not lie in the whether or not you know the cards and can interpret them correctly but whether you can truly stay detached from the outcome during your own tarot card reading.
If you are emotionally attached to something and want the outcome of your tarot card reading to be a specific answer, it is not a good idea to do your own tarot card reading. Believe it or not, you can actually influence the cards as you shuffle them and lay them out. Your desire for a certain outcome could be so strong you will see that in your tarot card reading even if that is not what the reading says.
When you are dealing with matters of the heart: love, relationship, soulmates, twin flames or reuniting questions, it is in your best interest to find an honest, accurate tarot reader. The reader will have no attachment to your outcome so she will not be biased toward the question. They will be able to blast through your emotions without clouding the delivery of the tarot card reading.
So many times I have seen people do their own tarot card reading, night after night, asking the same questions over and over. They are emotionally vested in the outcome of the question and not allowing the wisdom of the cards to speak their truth. In conducting your own tarot card reading you are flooding them with your hopes and desires and not seeing clearly what they may be trying to reveal with your own personal interpretation. So for an important concern which involves the depth of your emotions, finding a tarot reader you can trust is your best course of action.
If you are doing a reading on yourself for something you are not emotionally attached to, such as “Will my pot roast turn out on Sunday”? you will be able to get a decent result with some accuracy. It would be even better if you phrased the question in the third person, “How will Sally’s pot roast turn out on Sunday”? and act as if you are doing the tarot card reading for someone else. It will allow you to be even more non-biased to your outcome and you may be surprised at the accuracy of your answer. However, as I have mentioned, for matters of the heart where your emotions are deeply intertwined with the outcome, it is best left to a professional who can interpret the reading without bias.
