Tarot Card Predictions-Don’t Freak Out…

So you have just done a reading for yourself or gone to see a tarot reader, and the result of this experience is causing you to worry about the tarot card predictions that you have been given. Well, worry no more. Nothing is written in stone. The beauty of life is that we have free will. And just because you have been told something that is causing you to worry does not mean you have no control over it, or that it will even come to pass.

What to do when you are worried.

The first thing to do whenever you are worried about anything in life is to calm your body and mind. You will not make good decisions while your mind and emotions are reeling and will likely only make the situation worse. After you have taken some time to calm your mind and body, sit down and write a list of all the positive actions you can take to avoid the so called outcome you have been warned about to help you get back into a state of empowerment. This action will help remind you that you really do have free will.

Write down all the reasons why this prediction won’t come true.

When you look at both sides of the coin, you begin to see all the probabilities in front of you. For example, say one of the tarot card predictions you received suggested that your lover is going to cheat on you and leave you. Sit down and write down all the reasons why this will not happen based on your knowledge and feelings about the relationship. Write down the positive aspects of the relationship and what is working between you. Be honest about how you really feel within the relationship and if there are truly any signs that suggest this prediction will come true. You will likely come to feel that the prediction is not really accurate, but what it has done is reminded you to not take your partner for granted and maybe express more appreciation. In other words, this reading is a prompt and opportunity for you to deepen your relationship and clear any blocks that may have come between you. If you had not gotten this reading, you may have missed an opportunity for your relationship to get even better.

If your lover was going to cheat and leave, you would know deep down there were some big problems before you got a tarot reading.

A relationship that is good will foster positive emotions and will support you to fulfill your inner and outer potential. This does not mean it won’t have its challengers. But if one party was going to stray and do something so hurtful, there would be many signs that this relationship is not functional. Many fights, power struggles, general bitterness, deep disappointment and resentment would likely be present, or the relationship was never built on strong foundations to begin with, which would mean the enquirer would be better off without this person anyway. So, even if this prediction is likely to come true, rather than worrying about what the other person is doing, it would be far more productive for the enquirer to focus on their own inner stability, self worth, personal happiness and life path as an individual in order to attract a partner that is better suited.

What are your experiences with tarot card readings in relation to things that made you worry? I would love to hear your thoughts, so comment below and let me know.

  1. I received one tarot card reading in my life. It was very uncomfortable. I was told something along the lines of “if you don’t do this…then this will come to pass.” It was very mysterious what it was I was supposed to do. It did make me worry for a few weeks, and even I reflected back on it years later, but eventually it was out of my mind. I generally think it can be dangerous to influence someone to feel bad about something that could happen – it’s a scary experience. But you are right, you must dig deep inside and know your experience and believe in what you feel and know is true.

    1. Thanks for your comment Maria and I am sorry you had that experience. It is that sort of thing that gives the whole tarot card reading industry a bad reputation. And you are right, it is dangerous to influence someone to feel bad about something that could happen. Tarot reading is a great responsibility and readers should not take for granted the fact that someone comes to them with their deepest wishes, desires, pains and fears. It is my quest to advocate responsible use of the tarot cards and demystify them somewhat.

  2. I don’t believe in Tarot reading to predict the future. But it can be useful to get people to think about themselves or their relationships. As you say once you are calm you can analyze the “prediction” or problem and start finding solutions. If used this way Tarot card predictions can be helpful.

    1. Thanks for your comment Peter. I don’t believe in Tarot readings to predict the future either. I am really hoping to help people use the cards in ways that lead to self reliance and to help them have a deeper understanding of archetypal patterns which can lead to thinking in more lateral ways.

  3. I am new to Tarot cards and don’t have a negative card experience yet. But I absolutely agree with your thoughts on how not to worry in general. Regardless of the card, all of us encounter situations or people that give us negative predictions of the day sometimes. But just like you said, thats the time we can practice our free will and we should embrace it!
    Few years ago, in the spiritual related class I took, the instructor said that the free will is not choosing between eating salad or pizza. Its an ability to choose salad when all you want is pizza. It was an eye opening idea for me. I think that our minds respond to negativity quicker than positivity sometimes. But the more we choose the positivity and go against our nature, the more we attract the light of this life. And who knows, the Tarot card that we pick seems negative at the moment but what if thats an opportunity from the Creator that He will protect us or we will be bigger after the experience!

  4. Interesting topic here. I have come across very doom and gloom readings as well, but have learnt that that they are merely probabilities. It’s great that you have a section on what to do when we are worried – I agree that we can channel the worries and fears into coming up with positive actions we can take instead of ruminating about it coming true. Thanks for the advice.

    1. No worries Lily. I think this topic is quite important when it comes to Tarot because I think many people avoid getting a Tarot reading because they fear what might come up and feel that it might set some kind of future in stone. It is a shame there are so many stereotypes about Tarot and Tarot readers which are quite misguided in many ways. Tarot cards are just a way to get different perspectives and dredge up some unconscious fears, which help to see the situation more clearly and take some proactive steps to better the situation.

  5. You are totally right Liz!!
    It might be a good thing sometimes to get a card prediction, but you have to keep living in the present, although you have to look how to improve the future.
    Sitting down and analyzing the prediction is a very good idea since you can look what you can do to make that the outcome should be in your favor, also it might give you some feeling that you’re still in control of your situation.
    Anyway, great article, wish you all the best!!

  6. Tarot cards left me feeling hopeless and lost for too long. I am unfortunately a proof that it can be a very,very negative experience after which you question everything you do so much youre starting to lose sanity. The fortune teller I went to was an absolutely horrible person who gave me no hope,just when I needed just a spark of inspiration.She looked as if there was something fundamentally wrong with me . And Im definitely NOT a negative person in general. I actually have a band,my hopes and dreams – which she of course denied as if they were nonexistant. The worst thing was that she somehow abstractly hinted that I need to solve some problems from my childhood and if I don’t solve them, im going to torture myself mentaly. Great, as far as I know the only thing that REALLY tortures me is what she told me. So yes psychics, you can almost destroy a person, Bravo !!! Sorry for being so sarcastic. I tried to forget her and move on and we’re actually kinda successful with the band, but a lot of the Time the old fear just keeps coming back and I wonder “am I on the right path? What if i don’t do what she told me? Will the universe punish me? Will I end up in Hell,completely lost?” – and so an otherwise happy person like me is suddenly depressed. I feel it’s so unfair. The insecurity and loneliness hurt so much…… just so You get a glimpse how terrible it can get. Im so sad when I think about this … help me someone πŸ™

    1. Hey Lukas, I am so sorry to hear you had such a negative experience with a fortune teller. For the record, it is always my aim with a client to find where their unrealised potential is rather than tell them something really negative. I feel strongly that Tarot readings should be a positive experience and empower people rather than bring them down.

      When you were saying that the old fear keeps coming back and you are questioning yourself as to whether you are on the right path or not-do know that this has nothing to do with the fortune teller you saw. It is just that the fortune teller may have brought out some fears that you already had lurking inside you before you even saw her. But, a good Tarot reader would have explored what your options are for getting more out of yourself and how you can maximise your potential for your band to thrive. The point is, you already had the intention of having a successful band, so that was already decided. However, the value of a good Tarot reading is where the reader will highlight some areas you may not be aware of in order to keep moving in the direction you want to go with more ease.

      Being in the music business it is pretty common to feel insecure about your future and whether or not you are on the right path. It is part of the challenge of being in a creative field because there is no clear map for you and the reason why so many will quit before they see any real success. It is a hard road to travel. Believe me, I was a professional musician for 20 years! So, to me it just sounds like the person you went to see just triggered fear and sadness within you that was already there. This is a good thing because you get to look at it straight in the face and explore ways on how you can overcome it. I am not defending this reader in anyway, because it does sound like you were unlucky, but try to take the focus off of what she said and put it back on what you can do to empower yourself so you can travel the creative path with less stress. Hugs. xx

      1. Wow. Thank you for such a great answer !
        Well, in all honesty – the band was the one thing I had no doubts
        about. And I know music business is not easy at all, but I was always a believer.
        I was there because of something else that troubled me, but I forgot to stop her
        and she said to me also something about my music career – which for her was nonexistant πŸ˜€
        She looked more on what COULD NOT work then COULD WORK
        and then it was this ongoing spiral. It was really terrible.
        And I was also somehow scared of tarot itself πŸ˜€
        I was scared that if I don’t follow the path she told
        me – that the universe will somehow punish me. Which
        I know somewhere deep inside not to be true … but still there’s
        a lot of new doubt created by that experience and it was really
        frightening at times πŸ™

        I want to ask you – do you please have an email, or some contact ?
        I feel like it would be great if I could write you an email
        where I could describe my situation in more detail. (And also send you our music if you want haha πŸ˜€ )

        Thank you very much πŸ™‚
