- That there must always be an exchange for the reading (cross my palm with silver).
- That you must never read Tarot for money or you'll be perverting your gift.

I love the contradictory ones.

Conversely: You can ONLY learn tarot by reading books.

or before there were cards, even.

Yes it's well know that Tarot was invented in ancient Egypt, the name Tarot even comes from Ta-Ro meaning "The Royal Road", and they were introduced to Europe by gypsies.

I'm just going through some of my more eclectic "divination" coffee table books for this.

Here's another beauty:

Once upon a time, at the court of calif Harun-al-Rashid, there was a secret order of wise men, who painted all their learnings into coded pictures, which they called Tarot! (No reason for the name is given ; taken from "The Book of Oracles" by Gerhard Merz)

All the "scary" cards are actually tremendously positive and you should jump for joy if they turn up in your reading, as they're really about "transformation", empowerment, freeing yourself from limited ways of thinking and similar warm fuzzy stuff.

EDIT: excepting of course the Happy Squirrel Card (*shudders*)

The truth is that aliens visited the Egyptians showed them how to build pyramids and gave their priests the secret knowledge of the tarot, the first cards were made from papyrus, then the gypsies stole the secret and sold it to some rich merchants up in Venice, a thousand or so years later.

you should only get your cards read once a year, twice TOPS.
You must have "the gift" to learn or read
