This happens- we do a tarot reading about a situation we are hopeful for. Perhaps this a reading about a career move, or a potential relationship, and the outcome that the cards present simply is not what we are hoping for. Perhaps it gives us the sense that what we are hoping for simply is not a good idea at all. It may even indicate a crash and burn and scenario. Of course, this can bring about a sense of disappointment. But, if you look at it from another angle, it can offer a sense of hope. Knowing what to expect gives you the opportunity to realign your expectations of the situation before attaching too tightly to any particular outcome. Think about that.
The future, of course, is not set. Therefore, when reading tarot, if you get a card dealing with a future outcome that you do not like, you now have the power to change it. For example, say the future outcome is the tower. Obviously, this can indicate moving towards a disappointing outcome. What can you do right now to lessen this disappointment? What new approach can you take to change this disappointment into something more positive? If you know the outcome may be disappointment, you may also change your attitude about it. Disappointment is the result of expectations that go unmet. So, if you are forewarned that a disappointment is on the horizon, eliminate or change your expectation. Does the disappointment still happen?
Don’t let yourself take a defeated attitude toward whatever it is that you are moving into if the outcome card is frightening to you. Simply take it as it really is. Understand it as something that was never meant to be. If it was never meant to be, than what purpose does it serve in your life? It serves no purpose, so let it go. Poof! Let it be gone. If you don’t, what do you get for clinging to it? Maybe you get heartache. Perhaps you get frustration. Maybe you even get anger. Why put yourself through it? Why not just let go of it now and be done with it? Do you really need this in your life?
So, if you do not like the outcome you foresee based on your card reading, what can you do to make it positive? Turn the cards face up, sort through them until you find the one you really like. Want the lovers to be your outcome? Well then, take the lovers card. Magnetize yourself to it. Don’t treat it as an impossibility. Treat it as an eventuality. Do this though- let go of an expectation of how this will manifest. You may not know. You may not be able to know. But that doesn’t mean it is not possible.
This is where faith and trust come in. Magnetize yourself to what you want by believing so completely in your heart that to not achieve it is simply not a possibility. Treat it as if it is going to happen tomorrow, or has already happened. Now, how can it not? As far as the universe is concerned, it has already happened. The thing to do know is to wait for the earthly plane of existence catch up to it.
This is completely doable. It is completely possible to create our own future. Use tarot to advise you where you are likely headed. If you don’t like the destination you see, draw yourself another map by choosing another card. You don’t have to be disappointed. You are empowered to fill the blank slate that is the future with any picture you want to see when you get there.
