I’m a Tarot Reader – Why Do Clients Keep Giving Me Their Birth Date!?

I had a good question from one of our Members recently. This is something that comes up all the time – She asked:

Hi Dax! I have a question for you. I am always confused when a client gives me their birthdate when they want a tarot reading. Why do people do that? What am I supposed to do as the tarot reader?

This comes down to consumer knowledge. Most lay folks like to lump-together everything Metaphysical. Even though a Tarot Reading, Psychic Reading, Astrology, Numerology, Mediumship, etc are all different modalities, in the minds of the general public, it’s all the same thing!

Yes, this can be frustrating to the Professional Reader, but rather than letting these kinds of things frustrate you, see it as an opportunity to educate the client as to what a Tarot Reading actually IS, and what it’s not….

If you sit down to do a Reading with a Client, and they offer their Birth Date, politely tell them that it is not necessary for them to give you their Birth Date, as all the information will come from the Cards….

…and just leave at that. If they inquire further, then you can explain that a Birth Date is needed for an Astrologer or Numerologist (along with other information) to calculate their Charts, but it’s not needed for a Tarot Reading.

You can explain further, what a Tarot Reading IS and is not, and what other practitioners do, if they are curious.

As professionals, I see it as our job to educate the general public. Another one I get all the time, when I tell people that I am a Tarot Advisor, is: Oh Really? …Well I am a Scorpio!

When I get those kinds of statements or questions, I use it as an opportunity to educate them on the differences between a Tarot Reading, Astrology, Numerology, a Psychic Reading, and so on….

As Tarot Professionals, we should be ambassadors for the industry, actually looking for opportunities, such as these, to promote Tarot and educate the general public! We have to put ourselves in their shoes, and remember that most of the people we meet will only know what they have seen in movies and on TV…

International Tarot Day is coming up soon: July 8th …This is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to become Ambassadors of Tarot! Share Tarot with everyone you meet on ITD!

………NOW, all of that said, the funny thing is (in the interest of full disclosure) that I actually DO ask for clients’ Birth Dates!

….Along with their Birth Name, as I am a Numerologist, in addition to being a Tarot Advisor. I will usually calculate their Numerology Charts, and learn a lot about my client, before I even sit down with them, with the Cards. I will share their Numerology Chart with them first, as it holds a lot of information for the client.

I will often be able to answer some of their questions, inspire new ones, and give the client a lot of content (added value), before I draw a single card! Numerology is extremely complimentary to Tarot!

Yours in Light, Dax
