Many people disagree on whether reading Tarot when in a real crisis is a good idea or potentially harmful. I think it depends on your intent and what you are seeking to get out of your readings. This is my own interpretation of this issue and the opinions are my own.
What can be potentially Harmful
Prophecy/Divination Trying to determine what WILL happen in a crisis can be confusing. We are emotionally distraught, we aren’t thinking clearly. We are completely permeated by our current circumstance. Even if our reading is accurate, we may be unable to accurately determine what our soul or spirit guides are telling us. Cards are not an exact science and if we try to determine exactly what is happening through divination, we may make poor or detrimental decisions.
Making Critical Decisions based on what Cards tell us We may not have all of the information, and whenever we do readings, we can only interpret the cards in accordance with the information our cognitive mind already has. Even the most intuitive and gifted psychics can struggle to interpret information from their subconscious accurately.
Asking the Wrong Questions I cannot tell you how many times in my own life, when faced with a crisis, that I was completely hung up on asking all the wrong questions. And the answers to the wrong questions could lead us astray. Or, our desperate spirit guides might give us the answers to the right (but completely different) questions. I was too close the the situation to have even known what the right questions would have been.
Positive Questions to Ask Tarot in a Crisis (ask yourself too)
What can I do to stay healthy so I can deal with this effectively?
How can I approach this differently?
How do I continue to show love to the people important to me?
How can I continue to seek my highest good?
What can I do to be prepared to handle the outcomes of this crisis?
Who should I look to for comfort, guidance and wisdom?
