You Like Weird Shit? 5 Weird Things That Happen When You Read Tarot Cards

1. The Cards Jump


We call them “jumpers”.  Cards will fly right out of the deck while you’re shuffling, seemingly to answer exactly what you’re asking.  Or what you really need to know instead.  Many times the number of cards is the same as you intended.

Bonus:  You find tarot cards in totally different rooms.

2. You Know The Card Before It’s Pulled


Called “precognizance”, this phenomena is a skill many of us develop even without the use of tools.  It’s when you know what will happen before it does.

Bonus skill:  seeing cards when you’re not even using them.  Tarot cards and other divination tools can be the symbolic language that Spirit or your intuition uses to communicate with you.

3. You Learn To Cast Tarot Spells


Tarot cards can be magickal tools used for visualization and spellcasting.  Once you get a sense of each card there is much more that can be done with them.  A deck that inspires you can make for a good ally and magick tool.  Want to stay hidden?  Pull out the Moon and explain your situation.  I have personal experience with this.

Janina Renee’s “Tarot Spells” is the first and only book on tarot magick I own.  It comes with a simple opening and closing ritual, and layouts for specific issues.  My favorites are the Business Success and Self Transformation layouts.  Once you find out what works, you can easily create tarot spells for anything that might come up.

4. The Death Card Doesn’t Scare You


It may take longer for you to warm up to a dancing skeleton than others.  But once you’ve been reading for a while you see the tarot as encompassing all that life it- neither fully bad nor fully good.  You may even welcome the sight of this card during a trying situation you just need out of.

To further be of service to clients who are grieving or experiencing true death, classes in counseling may be helpful.

5. Everyone Wants To Know More About It


Everyone has had readings, wants one or is afraid to get one.  I’m always finding out one or more people I’m sitting with has a deck.  Some even use it.

Everyone else will “pray for you”.

Either way once people find out I’m a tarot reader, they all have an opinion or want to know more.

  1. I love this post! It reminds me of a reading I watched on YouTube where The Empress of Wands was reading a spread about the month ahead and her card table literally collapsed under her. The message just so happened to be talking about stability, so you know she had to throw that in there as a sign! LOL! It was perfect! One thing I’ve noticed when I do Tarot is that I get the chills every time I shuffle… It’s weird and wonderful!


    1. Hi Stacie! Yikes. Collapsing table?

      Jumping cards and images of them popping into my head are 2 things I regularly notice when shuffling. Thanks for sharing your experience!



  2. I learned to read the Tarot from a lovely “hippie” lady over 30 years ago. It’s part of my life. You’re right that people want to know more about it and I want to help them. I want to make it my business but I don’t know how.

    1. I know just the place if you’d like to start a tarot business.

      Try watching Christina Quick’s video series here:

      I’ve been reading pro for over a decade, but wanted to shore up some biz practices. She has a FB group as well, and I’ve bought her huge masterclass of courses. You can start with her 5 part series.

      I’m always glad to help, as well. Thanks for reading, Ruth!


  3. Very interested in tarot cards! I have a deck but been in storage for a while…I’m going to get me a new set & a book to go with So I can learn right. Bless Be!
