Tarot card reading vs Hula

I made a comment on this topic at a forum - Re tarot reading and hula for a person starting to do tarot:

I totally agree to Andalusia's sharing (she made a reply to the person who posted a query), in particular tarot reading as a form of entertainment.

Although as a beginner or doing it as a sideline you really need to practice a lot and develop the skills. Otherwise you will lose your clients and will not return back to you if you do not read the cards carefully.

I have sustain myself through my followers and through words of mouth from my regular patrons. Since I do not have a place of my own, unlike before I used to read with other folks at Edsa Shangrila, I read clients at coffeeshops and restaurants, of course all these readings are through appointment. Some clients have came across me through fliers/posters at UP Shopping center, through my blog and others read testimonials about me at different forum.

As to pricing - I am at high-end, for beginner I believe the common rate would be 300-500 pesos a reading.

Also I like to dispel the notion that tarot readers are manghuhula. Reading tarot is not a form of hula, as a reader whatever cards you pick I interpret it for you. For that reason I charge higher because my reading is more wholistic - I do birth chart, palmistry, and if clients are not satisfied I can also give them I Ching reading.

So enjoy your journey through tarot card reading and please do not mistaken hula for tarot reading, unless otherwise you really do not fully grasp what tarot reading is, or for some they make hula in their interpretation of the tarot since they are not attuned with the real essence of tarot reading.

Below is my posting to a Sulit  forum inspired by the topic above:

I like to dispel the notion of tarot readers as manghuhula. 

As a tarot reader I do not make hula but intepret what the cards says once drawn by the client. For a good tarot card reader the card never tells a lie about the condition and situation of a person wanting to be read. Uarenskilled tarot reader I believe would make hula if they are not adept at interpreting the meaning of the card. And for those who are not sincere in reading the cards properly to the clients will never become a good one if they have not lose the confidence of the people they read. For those who make tsamba - well it won't be for long that their schemes will be found out.

There's energy and connection between the reader and the tarot he/she uses, so for some readers would prefer a particulat deck of cards. Also a sincere person who wants to be read will definitely find answers to his/her questions since it is the energy of the person that chooses and picks the card for interpreation. Also, as a practitioner who have gone through several years of experience, tarot card reading is far from hula since I also help the client validate and seek answers to his/her questions by using other means like the use of the I Ching.

Aside from that, skills for drawing up an accurate birth chart and abilities to read palm helps me confirm my reading with clients.

So I hope that those who are wanting to learn tarot reading should never compare themselves with a manghuhula and also those who are not so familiar with tarot reading should never consider us as manghuhula. Tarot readers are of a different breed. Some of us become one by instinct, inspiration or purely gifted with psychic abilities and the rest became one through their effort of learning the art and skills of tarot reading. 

Anyway it is up to the client to believe or not what the card tells, otherwise the reading could be considered as a meaningful entertainment.

Tarot Reading and I ching appeal to figuring out and finding answers to both personal concerns and issues. Some uses birth chart to determine luck, prosperity as well as compatibility with their fiance, friends or spouse.

I hope through this forum post readers are now cleared that tarot readers are unique individuals and they are not into the craft of manghuhula or doing the tricks of hula.

It's very true that the learning curve is really the most important part of becoming a reader. That's where the true foundation for any further insight lies and even intuition needs to be guided by that foundation of the basic principles and meanings of the Tarot. As a learner, it's most helpful to read as many people as possible, but they should always be aware that they are dealing with someone who is still in the process of learning and hasn't yet mastered the skill. I may visit the forum you mentioned as this type of topic is right up my alley! Thanks for an informative post.
