I present to you a collection of my original Scary Stories. Supernatural, mystery, magic, horror – you know, the fun stuff. All kidding aside, my stories are inspired by Tarot cards, specially Tarot readings.
But the Tarot itself is scary, right? Maybe. Most of us are unfamiliar with the cards, or just have a base understanding from movies and media. I, myself, respect the ideas and concepts depicted by the Tarot.
Don’t fret. The Tarot is neither magical, supernatural, evil, nor occult. Tarot readings do not predict the future nor foretell death. The cards are ultimately, and merely, just a deck of cards. In fact, they were originally playing cards. Our playing cards today, like Bicycle, are derived from the Tarot.
Today, the deck is used for a type of insight. They contain imagery that speak to us through symbols and interpretation. They are designed to address specific attributes of the human condition – social, self, emotion and logic. Tarot cards expand our thinking, or reason in a slightly different, subjective way.
Tarot readings only provide concepts. You, the Audience, interpret, perceive and act upon what is laid before you. I, on the other hand, use the readings as inspiration for my Scary Stories.
If you like my scary stories, please feel free to share this website TheDarkReading.com and our Podcast at anchor.fm/thedarkreading with your friends and colleagues. Thanks!
