Emergency Resources

Doing tarot readings can sometimes surface issues that are way out of your league and people are sometimes more willing to tell a tarot reader stuff they wouldn’t tell anyone else. Being a tarot reader isn’t a free pass to play therapist, lawyer, or doctor. You also don’t want to be that reader who ends up in legal trouble because they overstepped their boundaries. Keep a list of hotlines or websites handy, so when the conversation takes a serious turn, you can point people in the right direction. In many cases you may be saving a life by doing so. Here are some resources for just that:
