I find it frustrating how so many Tarot readers feel they have to hide their talent because of the misrepresentation of what we do that is so prevalent in today's media. The fear of animosity and ridicule can be overwhelming.
Today, Skwirl sat down with Robin as she shared her journey of how she overcame the fear and "came out of the tarot closet". They discussed her reservations, how she battled the insecurity, and how she found the courage to show the world who she is. They also talked about some reasons why many readers can't feel comfortable letting others know what they do, and how they can find a sense of strength and empowerment.
No matter what your "closet" status, remember that you are not alone.
