Tarot Bytes Episode 174: Tarot Fears with Elliot Adam
There are some real tarot fears out there. Take the Death card for example. People see it and freak the heck out! Why is that? More importantly, how can we understand and dispel those negative connotations? In this episode of Tarot Bytes, Elliot Adam, author of Fearless Tarot: How To Give a Positive Reading in Any Situation, joins me to talk about why tarot scares some folks – and how to look at some “scary” cards through the lens of compassion.
Elliot Adam is the author of “Fearless Tarot: How to Give a Positive Reading in Any Situation.” He believes in taking the fear out of traditional tarot interpretation and using archetypal imagery for personal empowerment. Twenty years ago, Elliot Adam opened his own tarot shop, “Athena’s Oracle,” on Milwaukee’s historic East Side. He then went on to earn a Doctoral Degree in Classical Oboe before deciding to return his attention to his spiritual business roots. Since 2017, Elliot established his website, ElliotOracle.com and has since attracted a substantial international clientele including Hollywood scriptwriters, high-profile journalists, actors, doctors, and entrepreneurs. His success is rooted in his unique descriptions of traditional tarot symbolism as vehicles for self-improvement.
Elliot’s Card of the Day blog has attracted a huge following and is currently among the first tarot definition search results on Google (especially for reversals). He’s currently completing a book based on his popular tarot interpretations and believes in taking tarot out of the realm of fear and into a place of understanding and empowerment.
Elliot also loves ancient Greek history, religion, and language and has many classical poems and hymns memorized in their original Greek.
Elliot’s business, ElliotOracle.com, offers tarot readings for clients. Tarot is a language of pictures depicting universal archetypes. Our inner selves speak in the language of myths and symbols. As an oracle, Elliot reads the story of a client’s life based on the symbols from the tarot cards.
By viewing individual situations through this lens, clients gain safety and distance from their fears and can detach from specific outcomes. Elliot uses the imagery to help clients examine what’s potentially blocking them from moving forward, but also to view where their energy is flowing to a clearer path towards success.
