What if Your Tarot Cards or Horoscopes Give You Bad News?

Tarot cards and daily horoscopes are great for providing insight into your life, but what if you encounter a seemingly negative reading that portends bad news? First of all, don’t freak out! Bad news and difficult situations can be a blessing in disguise.

Those who go to their tarot cards or horoscope seek answers to all sorts of questions, and we don’t always get the answer we’re hoping for. If that’s the case for you, we present you with an action plan that can help you accept and cope with the not-so-great news. Embrace the message and plan for brighter days ahead.

If that’s the case for you, we present your action plan on what to do if your Tarot reading or Daily Horoscopes gives you some not so great news. Hint: Don’t freak out.

Step 1: Consider the Placement of the Tarot Cards

Seeing a “negative” card appear in your Tarot reading can be frightening. The first thing to look at is the card′s placement – the physical location of the card in the Tarot spread. The tarot cards in your reading are laid out on the table in a specific pattern.

The spread helps determine the actual meaning for each card as it relates to your life. Spreads feature past, present and future outlooks, based on their placement.

Past: If your negative Tarot card is placed in the past, the negative situation is behind you.

Present: If the negative tarot cards are in the present (Which may be the reason you′re getting the reading in the first place.), this negative energy is moving out of your life.

Future: If the negative Tarot cards are in the future, you have the ability to change the course of events – or at least take control of them. If you don′t make the proper adjustments to your life, that negative situation may still occur. Placement is your biggest clue when it comes to the not-so-happy cards showing up in your Tarot reading.

If you are reading something in your Daily and Weekly Horoscopes and get upset about some potentially negative news, again, don’t freak out. The horoscopes are much like your weather forecast and are created using the astrological weather patterns. Sometimes stormy clouds pass right over us, even when the meteorologist is telling us to brace for it!

Don’t freak out if the horoscopes hint at trouble either. Prepare for it emotionally, but know that this too shall pass, like every other storm.

Step 2: Avoid the Power of Negative Thought

There′s a belief that negative thoughts become realized if you spend your days worrying about the worst that could happen. This is called the Law of Attraction. When it comes to using Tarot cards wisely, or using your Daily Horoscopes wisely, the key is to not become your own worst enemy, which is called being human and very easy to do. Don’t do that.

By obsessing on the negative, you might actually cause negative situations. ‘Thoughts become things’ is the Law of Attraction. Beyond the mental trauma caused by constantly harping on the worst possible scenarios, there′s also a physical toll – lethargy, stress, reactiveness … and it′s easy to attract double trouble if that′s all you′re focusing on.

Remember that one negative card or horoscope does not dictate your entire life. Focus on the positive tarot cards while remaining aware of the negative.

Step 3: Have an Open Mind.

The best way to get the most out of your Tarot cards is to be as open as possible to all scenarios. You don′t get a reading to confirm what you want to happen; you get one to confirm what is happening and why, and the possible outcomes. Put away your fears and expectations and just let the process unfold.

Not everything is going to be a major thing. If you see a Major Arcana card, that has no suits on it, a major life event is on its way to you, or has happened to you. Examples of Major Arcana cards are The Lovers, Death, The Star, and The Sun. There are 22 of these in the Tarot.

A Minor Arcana card that has suits such as cups, pentacles, swords, or wands represents things happening in the day to day grind of life. These are numbered from 1 to 10 in each suit, with aces representing number 1 in the Tarot. Not everything in a Tarot reading is going to change your life, and the same goes for your horoscopes.

Examples of Minor Arcana cards include the 10 of cups, the 3 of pentacles, the 6 of wands, and the ace of swords.

Many times, we book Tarot readings to answer specific questions, closing ourselves off to other issues that may need addressing, but the Tarot cards and horoscopes don′t lie. They always reveal an answer, sometimes just not the one we were hoping for. Remember to focus on the light cards that do show up (as they always will.).

This will help you be more open to any negative news that may arise.

Step 4: Make an Action Plan.

Getting great news in a Tarot reading or your Daily or Weekly Horoscopes is one thing. Actually obtaining the wonderful things you′ve been told while avoiding or confronting the negative, is a whole other challenge. The goal is to leave your readings with an action plan: a tactic to address the answers you were just given.

When you have that, negative news from a reading means much less. You already know what you′re going to do about it.

A good Tarot reader will ask you, in those last few minutes of your consultation, if you have any questions. Here′s your response: “What is my action plan to reach these goals?” They′ll either know the answer right away, or they will pull a couple of more cards for you to get that answer. Either way, a good reader will not let you leave without that question answered.

Concluding Thoughts…

There you have it! 4 easy steps to handling negative news from your Tarot cards or from your Daily or Weekly Horoscopes. Hey, life is a box of chocolates, but sometimes the picks are duds. Not every moment in life is going to be rosy. We want you to be prepared for the less than stellar ones, without letting it wear you down.

Stay positive, and know that no matter what storm comes your way, never forget that no storm lasts forever. Good news is just another horoscope or Tarot reading away!
