Human practice of predicting the future has a long history and it has commonly been found in shamanism and totemism. In the age of smart phone that enables humans to do many things at anytime anywhere, the practice seems to be no less popular than before as it is human nature to be curious about their future whether it is for fun or serious.
Tarot is a pack of playing cards used from the mid-15th century Europe and is widely practiced today as a means to read one’s future. Recently in South Korea, tarot industry has grown rapidly that it is not a surprise at all to see the Korea Tarot Reading Association set sail.
Jo Mi-jin, the president of the association, was not happy with rote-learning tarot and is suggesting, instead, an accurate interpretation through storytelling.
Currently running Rexy Tarot in Songpa District Seoul, Jo has 10 years experience in the field with average 15 tarot readings a day. She has spent a considerable amount time in studying accurate reading methods based on one’s character, past, destiny, tendency of direction and course of the future. For this, she used advantage of her counseling psychology certificate to be mixed with tarot reading.
“One can easily predict one’s future by reading the picked cards. What is more important, however, is to bring up solutions when things turned our bad. This requires tarot reader’s years of experience and trained analytic eye” said Jo.
Korea Tarot Reading Association runs four classes: beginner, intermediate, advanced and master. All classes are run one on one to maximize accuracy of reading. For those who have difficulty to travel, the association also runs online classes.
The beginners can learn reading about money and New Year, the intermediate about love and relationship, the advanced about jobs, and the master about in-depth knowledge of all.
Successfully finishing a class comes with a certificate of attendance and passing a test comes with a certificate accredited by the association.
Korea Tarot Reading Association was recognized for its contribution to the emerging industry and is set to receive the 2020 Korea Future Management Awards this month in the category of tarot reading.
