We asked Chris Riley, psychic to the stars, about why fortune telling has seen a resurgence in 2020 and how Tarot can help in times of uncertainty.
1. Why have more people turned to fortune telling and tarot in 2020?
Tarot reading is an easy way of receiving specific insights and guidance into your life and situations, whether that’s work, career prospects or matters of the heart. I’ve found that as we have collectively gone through some trauma this year, people are becoming more aware of spirituality as a way of looking for guidance for their lives now and the future. It can be a great way to relieve some of the worry surrounding the uncertainty of this year and with many people being dealt life-changing situations, many people have been turning to Tarot reading as a form of support.
2. What do you think the benefit of doing tarot during such uncertain times is?
The benefit of Tarot reading is that you’re able to receive guidance to questions, whether that’s something happening in your life right now or in the future and the cards that you draw will give you insight into your situation based on their meanings. It’s based off a gut feeling and I think it really encourages people to trust in themselves.
3. What would be your advice for newcomers on learning more about tarot?
My advice for anyone who is new to learning Tarot would be to trust your gut feelings and trust the feelings you get intuitively when you’re looking at the cards.
