The purpose of tarot cards is not fortune telling, as some seem to mistakenly think. Instead, a tarot reading is an exploration of your question or issue, using the symbolic meaning of the card or cards that are drawn to delve deeper into what is going on, what it means for you, what is called for from you and what you can learn from the situation. 

Oftentimes, a certain outcome may be indicated if you successfully meet your challenge, but this is much different from a prediction. It is always important to remember that the future is unwritten, and nothing can change that fact.
