You might be a novice, or even a more seasoned reader. You might be super intuitive, and you know your cards well. Maybe you got innate social intelligence. And, of course, you are an empath .
Well, dha’ling, being an empath in the fortunetellig biz is both a blessing and a curse. Surely, we don’t need to go into the blessing part. But lets talk about the curse aspect!
When we are compassionate, supporting, and empathizing with our clients, we start feeling more inclined to tell them what they want to hear :
🤥 5 of Pentacles — “Of course you’re getting your old job back.” .
🤥 3 of Swords — “Absolutely, he’s leaving his crazy wife for you.” .
🤥 7 of Swords — “Has she cheated on you? No way!”
We all have been there. And if you aren’t a complete charlatan, who gives clients only what they want to hear, so they come back for more horse shit — you know how shook your integrity be after that client leaves.
So how shall we deal with this catch 22? My best advice is — read the damn cards! When all fails, go back to the reading table, and tell your client word in word what the layout is about; explaining each card’s meaning, and letting them soak in the vibe. Then, when they are aware of the cartomantic atmosphere, you’ll be able to let them down easier.
Cards don’t lie, readers do. Don’t be an over-extended empath. Deliver the prophesy with integrity, and trust that your client will benefit in meaningful ways from your honest divination, in the long run because Spirit works in mysterious ways!
