Is the future set on stone? or you have freedom of choice?

Is the future set on stone? or you have freedom of choice?

Tarot and many other future telling methods somewhere create this illusion in minds of people that future is set and fixed and you just need to go to some fortune teller. Spend some money and then you’ll know what is your future. If it was that easy then all rich people would have known their future and never have fallen prey to falling economy or share market breakdowns.  

Well then is future not set? its not fixed, right? this question too is dwindled away if you believe that  destiny isn’t fixed. Well my job is not to make you believe that ‘future tellers’ are right and they should be depended upon. Neither my job is to make you ‘non-believer’, if you believe in it too much. I have been doing Tarot since more then 11+ years now and while doing readings for people I have learnt this…. people have this itch to know what’s in future for them. Plus the skeptics have a greater itch to know HOW a normal human like them can predict the future :D  
Its funny, I get some interesting peeps to argue about my profession. I have written this post for all the Tarot aspirants, so that you guys can know how to deal with this subject as you’re going to face this a lot. And believe me when I say A LOT. 

What is fortune telling all about? 
Future telling or fortune telling is all about peeping into the future and learning what’s coming up. 
Whatever is shown to you in future prediction is from the current activities you are doing. A part of Destiny in everybody’s life is fixed and pre-destined. The Soul’s Purpose is already chosen since birth. But each and every step and each and every breath isn’t fixed. 
That Soul’s Path is selected yet its our freewill whether we decide to walk upon it now or 10years later. So your future seer will predict different for you if you are walking on your soul’s path now. And the same future teller will vary in his predictions if you have decided to walk on your souls path 10 years later. 

That was about your Soul’s Purpose. Now if you have selected your Soul’s Path then too depending upon your current activities your future will differ. For example if you have brought with you 4 different Soul’s Purposes to complete, then its your choice which one you wanna work upon first and others later on. And Soul’s Purpose is always decided by a soul after their birth, as before birth programming is already forgotten. So what a soul plans and outlines from his pre-birth memory while being on this earthly plane will matter and will shape their future. 

Freewill a gift to Humans - Freewill is the gift to us humans. We can think, feel and decide whatever we want to do, based on how life is behaving with us. Well that’s the literal definition for this. But you know you cannot just decide and react based on what’s happening with you, else you are just going to be a puppet of outer circumstances. And this type of giving reaction might also make you do sins, as you are not always going to get good from the outer world. 

Maya the illusion of perception - Well this word Maya, now usually is found in almost every article I write lately since past 2-3years. Its because I have begun to realize it plays a huge role in our life. And sometimes it is fun to watch it make us dance. Whether you see good in the world or you see bad in the world. Its your way of seeing the world that’s going to affect your decisions, thoughts and actions. You will act based on your perception of what happened to you. And how you perceive this world and what it does to you, is in the hands of Maya. Miss Maya can make you think extremely positively and just let you get motivated and keep going ahead in life. Whereas the same maya can pull you down and not let you rise above your limits. This maya is layer where the Law of attraction works. But Maya is considered as Goddess according to Vedas. She is difficult to win over, but if you win she’ll love to show you her glory and divine dance. Maya is the layer where the mind works and physical/ material world comes into existence.

You might have heard some people who talk just rubbish or insane but whatever they say and believe somehow falls true and leaves you baffled?! Well some people can just see a lot more clearly past the veil of Maya. But we usually consider them crazy people. Well that too is the magic of Maya to make you NOT believe the ones who can see beyond maya. 

What does “freewill” mean, is it really to be used as Freewill? - 
Well the above description of Freewill will make you think that life’s is what we make it. Yes its all what we make it But you cannot choose to make it good/bad based on your freewill. This is destined there are only a few soul’s who can make life bad or become destructive. Not everyone can do that. And if you decide something that you aren’t ought to do then you will reap its effects. 
Freewill means whatever tasks you have brought to complete on this planet you can complete at your own pace, in your own style. But out of freewill you CANNOT choose to not do them, and walk around at leisure on this planet.

How do Fortune tellers & prophecizers come into picture then - 
Freewill matters and does exist. But still human behavior is usually fixed. And seldom does an adult change his behaviour. Human mind develops and is flexible during childhood. That’s when a child is learning and growing and programming their subconscious mind. Nothing is much fixed then and so children are very open and adjustive to every situation they are put in(this is why some future seers will tell you not to predict something for kids as their mind will solidify once they grow). Upto the age of 14-18years usual programming is done. After 20years a personality is fully developed. And a human behaves according to what experiences are stored in their subconscious mind.  

Once anything goes into subconscious mind, its difficult to get it out. And so that will become the mind set. And future can be predicted based upon that. Though there are methods to re-program subconscious mind still hardly 10% out of the total population in this world are able to change their mind-set once it is set. One big reason is also that 9% out of those 10% never will come to know that their minds can be changed.
Extremely dedicated minds and tough determination to do something, no matter what. Is also a kind of mind set people have and they are the ones who can break their belief patterns. These people also can be predicted. 

Not just the subconscious mind of people wanting to read future, matter. But the one’s who are reading fortune also have a subconscious mind. And subconscious mind is connected to the Spiritual infinite world which has all answers to problems of the finite world. And so the intuition that these future teller’s use gets connected to the infinite world through their sub-conscious mind. And helps them to see clearly what’s going to come up in future. So fortune teller's who really have a clear intuition and can tap into it to see the future, can be depended upon.

How to handle people depending on fortune tellers -  

Phew! this is tough. I have seen some people going extreme. I know when predictions go true in extremely dire circumstances; tremendous faith is born in the fortune teller as well as their method of predictions. I too have got such results where people who were terribly under crisis and were immediately saved by my Tarot readings. And that just made me a saviour in their eyes. Well to help people feels great but to become a saviour is a bit uneasy to accept. I mean a Tarot Reader is a normal human being like their clients. Its just their knowledge and intuition that helps them to dig  out life-saving answers. Then why to consider them someone great. God is the one who makes and guides our intuition, if you feel overwhelmed by the fortune teller’s predictions accuracy be thankful to the divine for helping them with their intuition. And not the fortune teller himself/herself.

Try to deal with these people tactfully, you can take in the appreciation. But let the Divine only get the glory of the miracle your intuition has brought into their life. 

Bingo! these are the one’s you might find difficulty dealing with. Its not because that they don’t believe in your fortune seeing science. They are so determined that “future-seeing” does not exist that they might bring down you on your profession. Just to make you agree that what you are doing is totally bull-shit. And that you should shut your store and start living a more free life without depending on future seeing or without fooling people. :D :P 

lol. There are people like that as well. And I must say there’s nothing wrong in them. There are various kinds of people in this world. And amongst them there is a tribe that has been given everything very easily. Whetever they chase gets in their hands after a little struggle. And these people are the ones who will never believe in your profession. Because they will say you will get whatever you want. Thats true. But at the same time there are also these other type of people in this world that just keep chasing something, fall… get up… again fall… do that 10 times and then end up into a fortune teller’s office. 

What’s the difference between the two, well that comes out as a detailed explanation through the Tarot or some other means when a person in need asks. There are also these non-believers that have become non-believers because of believing too much into fortune seeing, and then finally nothing happened according to what was predicted. They finally conclude that nothing like that works or exists. And so they too become non-believers.  

Its okay if people don't believe but its difficult to deal with people who don’t believe in your profession and who are determined to scare the hell out of you. They try to uproot the knowledge roots of your fortune telling method, by picking your brain too much with blunt questions. Result a frustrated you, wanting to run out of your office in search for some help. 

Well I too have had my share of client’s/people coming to me wanting to ask weird and straight upfront questions that baffle me and question the validity of existence of my profession. I had few people question me or tell me; “look Priti I don’t believe in Tarot. But I still want you to bring your cards so that I can SEE whether its really true or not.”. Well see decipher the words, the person says they dont believe in what I do. But still wants to see whether it is true or not. So if they are just non-believers and still you try to make them believe they will incessantly pick your brain upto a point that you’ll give up. I usually tell them that “My profession is to help people deal problems with Tarot Predictions. If you don’t believe in my profession its okay. I am fine with it. My profession is not to make people believe in Tarot.” That’s it. and the topic closes on a positive happy note :) If people have determined that they are not going to believe in any future telling methods then there’s no use showing-off your skills in front of them. They are not going to get impressed anyways. All what happens is, you will feel drained off because you just could not prove your point in front of them. 

So that’s it from me for this week, you too might have got some interesting sharing on this topic. I would love to know that. Drop in comments below your experiences on how you deal with non-believers or devoted believers, and how you deal with it. I will be back again next week with more fun and juicy Tarot stuff. Bye till then.

3 simple Spreads for beginners

3 simple spreads for Beginners -

Hey welcome back to this week’s interesting Tarot treat. I wanted to offer you something different then usual, and so thought of Spreads! Spreads are yumm on toast as well as on your Reading table as well :) 
Kidding! Well As a beginner I sometimes struggled and used to get baffled while Tarot reading. Difficulty was to choose a particular spread for me while I knew there were many spreads existing. Tarot Spreads and the depth they offered was also confusing. Some spreads had just few cards and they said it offers great depth. And some spreads had many cards and they said that it could be used for minor day-to-day queries as well. I had the mis-conception that less card spread was used for minor reading/questions and larger spread cards were used for deep questions. Whereas some part of this is true, but its not always the case. Larger spreads can offer more details, though some of them could be used for day to day readings or minor questions as well. 
Spreads and readings for a total beginner can be totally confusing and mind daunting. The challenge of memorising the 78 cards wasn’t enough that the big bad world throws to you another challenge of “Spreads”. Doesn’t matter, you need to stay cool, and keep reading this post. You need to first get down and decide which spreads you are gonna use. Write it down! I am not kidding, at first you will need to do all this school kid typo work to help you stay focused and get it all right. 

One Card Spread -

 This spread/ reading can be used for minor as well as serious questions. Ofcourse you cannot call it a spread, as it doesn’t look like much of it is around.

One card reading can be easily taken as just the solution, or you can decide for yourself what that one card means for you. 
So if you are a total beginner, a thousand questions will stir up in your mind as soon as you pick up and start shuffling the deck. And so when you pick out the card you will be confused what it means. So just before you do any reading, I would suggest you that you first write down the questions you are going to ask that one card reading.  This will help you to stay focused on your question.
Once you pull out the card, you know what it stands for. 
One card reading can be used for a variety of purposes, to understand depth of a matter, to understand the question, to understand what’s being said and what’s not being said etc.  

Two Card Spread  - 

This two card reading can also be used as a solution or as an answer to client’s or to your question. This reading will be giving you better depth. But if you are a total beginner and want up to the mark answers and get confused with more card, stick to one card reading for sometime. 
Two card reading can also be used as 1st card for getting the solution to current problem, plus the next card telling the future when the solution step is taken. 

Three Card Spread - 

Three card spread is the most versatile spread, it can be used for a variety of purposes. Whether you want a quick reading or an in-depth reading this will work. Ofcourse the depth and detail that a large spread can bring cannot be acquired by this 3 card spread yet, you  can always use this to help you get quick readings. Its perfect for beginners to help them go deep with 3 cards and deliver a good weightage reading for client’s concerns.

A three card general reading can be 1st Card = Past, 2nd Card = Present and 3rd Card = Future. Which is widely used by most of Tarot Readers around the world. This spread can also be used in few ore ways… here’s it.

Present and Future Spread -  

1st Card = Present, 2nd Card = Guidance for Present concerns and 3rd card = Future. This spread can be where the first card is the present card or the card that shown the problem that is concerned. Then the 2nd card will show the guidance for the 1st card, and the 3rd card will show the outcome when the guidance is followed.  

Problem and Direction Spread -

1st card is showing problem, or situation at hand. 
And the other two cards will show two different options for solving or handling that problem at hand. And then the Querent has the choice which solution to choose. 
Now the two directions that will be shown by the cards will also help to decide which direction is better, or whether both directions are good. And it depends upon the preference of the querent where he wants to go and which direction he prefers and why. 

These are the basic three spreads that I feel will be good for everyone, especially for newbies as beginners as you might find it difficult as a beginner to use the cards effectively with spreads. Have you known or used any other simple spreads other then these? If yes then please share in comments below, you can tag me in picture on facebook if you want to show me the pictured version of it. Also if you want to share the entire spread and your interpretation then too you can tag me.

Will get back to you next week with something new and interesting to share. If you have any requests or queries about learning tarot you can surely ask them in comments below. I would love to help you :)

Quirks of a Spiritual Professional

Hello, welcome back to my weekly Tarot articles. I know you are here to quench your Tarot thirst. Today I have got few of my friends who have shared their quirks of being into their spiritual profession. May it be Tarot, Astrology or Witchcraft. All these lovely people have shared their heart out about the work they've chosen.
Here's what they have to say....

Frustrations of being a Tarot Reader

by Tarot Romance
Everyone wants their ex-lover back
“Is my lover coming back?” Is THE most common question I’m asked. And you can probably guess the percentage of times the answer is YES… 
It’s not always good news
I like to be an up-lifter. So it’s tough when I pull rubbish cards and tougher still to resist the urge to put a positive spin on it… But the moment I try to censor myself is the moment my intuition flies out the window.  It takes guts to tell people what they don’t want to hear!
I’m a target for abuse
A total stranger sent this via my contact form today:
“Are you telling me that the way the stars are aligned actually governs the way I live my life? Next you'll be telling me you live with ghosts and Elvis is coming round for lunch today. What a joke.”
Which got me quite riled up. But I took a few breaths and decided not to respond.
People think I’m weird.
This is accurate. I am pretty weird.

It’s All Insights when it’s Tarot

Magical Symbols, Intuitive Stew, and Healing medicine, these are the words the come to mind when I think of Tarot.

Growing up in a very religious Christian Family I use to see Tarot as Evil. I use to see it as if an evil spirit was living in the cards and telling people half-truths. In my own journey, these thoughts held me hostage in my own spiritual development. Being a born psychic medium and clairvoyant I had many dreams that consistently challenged my beliefs, including my ideas about Tarot. Once I grew tired of living confused and at war within myself I decided to drop my fear based thinking and explore my truth.

Learning Tarot was extremely easy for me. In school I have always been great with numbers and symbols and patterns. Turns out Tarot has a lot to do with these things. My first deck was a fairy deck. I thought it was cute and so I picked it out and went home to check it out. The messages were cute and inspiring and this starter deck made me feel at ease with crossing over the thin line of my childhood beliefs.

I decided to make several trips to the metaphysical store, learning new things and checking out crystals. One day I went to the store and I felt a lot of energy in my hands. As I began to pay more attention to what was calling my attention, I noticed it was a deck of Tarot cards. The closer I walked to these cards the better the energy felt to me. As I picked up the deck, I noticed it was a Stream Punk Tarot deck. I could not explain the feeling at the time but I felt deeply connected to these cards.

Whenever I would hold these cards, they felt beautiful to my hands. Smooth, and just amazing. Since then I use many other decks but this one remains my favorite.

I use Tarot in my personal life in many ways, such as:

-When I consider Things to look out for during the day

-Looking for inspiration to parent my children for the day.

-What my week will look like and if I need to give more attention to grounding on one day more than the rest

If I have a Mediumship Reading and my client feels nervous, sometimes I start with a general 3 card Tarot reading to help them to relax. At times many couples fuss and feud. Well this is no different in my own marriage. I am quick to give myself a quick look to see what I should do in heated situations. Tarot will always tell me the truth even if I was the one wrong in the situation.

While I still use my Stream Punk Tarot deck, I mainly use my Angel Tarot deck for clients.

In Short, Tarot is a tool that will accurately reveal the truth of a situation. Tarot works great for personal insights or giving responsible guidance to others. Tarot can answer Yes or no questions as well as questions that may be tough to ask. In those cases, the Celtic cross or Horse shoe spread works best.

Witchlife; Mystical Musings from a Real Life Witch

You hear the word Witch and many things probably come to mind, perhaps most of them uncharitable; a wizened hag with a pointy nose, women dancing naked under the moon and worst of all, a nubile woman cavorting with the Christian concept of the Devil. The word Witch has become a loaded and potent word conjuring all kinds of images, ideas and often many misconceptions. The reality is that Modern Witchcraft is a contemporary spiritual tradition with old world roots and influences.

There are many ways that Witches practice their Craft but here is a glimpse inside what it means to me to practice this earth-centered spirituality. 

I identify as a modern yet traditional Witch. This is a Path I came to many years ago, drawn to it when I was still a teenager. I have walked the ways of Paganism from a solitary Hedge Witch to participating in dedicated circles, including Coven work, to cycling back round to practice more on my own again, but now within the fellowship of a tradition and chosen community. Over the years I have come to draw from the wells of several wisdom traditions, integrating my experiences and knowledge from Goddess Traditions, American Folk Magick & Conjure and Faery Seership into my Witchcraft practice. To elaborate, I align both with the words Witch and Pagan, but it should be explained that while all Witches are Pagans, not all Pagans are Witches. There are many Traditions within the landscape of walking the Path of a Witch and Pagan, each with unique nuances, systems and beliefs. I speak for my own journey; my ways are not the only ways to practice the Craft of the Wise.

For me being a Witch is a spiritual orientation, a soul-blood alignment. It means I experienced a personal awakening and connection to something us Traditional Witches call the Witch Blood.
I practice a direct-encounter spirituality; living life as a co-creative, soul-purpose-oriented magickal practitioner. I believe I have a role in showing up in my life, fully accountable and actively participating through mindful living. For me, and many in my community, that includes honoring the Earth and all beings as sacred. It means attuning myself to the ebb and flow of the seasonal tides and the moon’s phases. It also means being aware that I act with integrity, contribute positively to community, the world and my work as a Healer.
Like many Witches and Pagans, I identify as an Animist. Animism comes from the latin word anima which means breath, spirit, life. An Animist believes that all life, even “inanimate” objects, possess spiritual essence. That means I believe in that all life is sentient regardless if it is in the same way as I am. To me, all life is connected and sacred, vital to the wellbeing of the planet as a whole ecology.
I also believe that Divine Presence is immanent, saturating and flowing through us, between us; integrated with the world that surrounds us, rather than a transcendent view that believes Divinity as somewhere separate, outside the physical world. As a Witch, I relate to Divinity both as Goddess and God. I believe that the world is made up of more than what can be seen with just my physical eyes, including what I call the Unseen World, Spirit Allies and Guides.
Another aspect of my spiritual path is maintaining a regular Ancestor Practice that honors and venerates those I know as my Beloved Dead or Holy Ancestors. I recognize that I am here because I arrived on the Ancestral Stream of those who came before me.


So what does this all look like in my daily life?

While I am not standing over a blazing fire stirring a giant cauldron filled with a bubbling brew, I do own a cauldron, but of a much humbler size. If you looked into my magickal cupboard you will also find pestle & mortars, brooms, crystals, sage, incense, herbs, candles, tarot cards and other items that I use in my magickal practice.
A Magickal Practice is not always the flamboyant notion that comes to mind of a person in flowing robes casting spells at their neighbor. It actually is a personalized experience unique to each person and tradition. You can find many definitions of magick, but for me, my magickal work is relevant to what I am seeking to visualize and manifest in my life. The magick I can be found working routinely focuses on aligning with prosperity, wellness, protection and healing.
As part of my spiritual practice, my home has a central role. I have many altars, some are small fitting entirely into a pot and some are larger. They can be found in my kitchen, livingroom, dining room and temple room. Altars are sacred space and as such create energetic portals me to interface with the Unseen World to commune, meditate, pray blessings or do active magick.  

prosperous altar3.jpg

Witchcraft is a way of life and integrated into my daily routines.
I begin my day with honoring my ancestors with offerings and doing the spiritual alignments of my Witchcraft Tradition; Ash, Birch & Willow. From there, I set my magickal intentions for the day with creative input, visualizations and soul-work mapping.
As a professional Witch, I also work with clients to provide spiritual counsel, healing and guidance on their journeys of awakening and growth. When I am not at my shop, I can be found spending time outside on the land, frequently at the river near my home, connecting to the Genius Loci (Spirit of the Place) or tending my garden.

Lynne McGee -Tarot Reader.

When I first started doing Tarot Readings I happened to also be into chakra balancing so every time I would do a reading I would prepare myself by mentally running quickly through my chakra’s and making sure they were all open, pumping out the right colours and then I would end the session imagining myself fully enclosed in a bubble of white light. This process would take me about 5 to 10 minutes to prepare and then I would be ready to commence reading for other people. I was a ‘party reader’ so I used to go into people’s homes, be enclosed in a room somewhere and ‘do my thing’. It was essential that I was ready to commence work as quickly as possible. If reading for myself I didn’t bother.

However when I started to take clients at home I was very nervous. I’m not entirely sure why although I’m a bit of a perfectionist and the sessions were much longer and I charged more so I wanted to be sure I would provide a quality service. In order to steady my nerves I developed a much longer meditation and chakra opening practice and in doing so discovered an unexpected talent.

I was a Massage and Polarity Healing Therapist as well as a Reader at this time and in my office there was a massage table, my work desk, and facing my work desk a built in cupboard with a mirrored door which clients could use to adjust their clothing and fix their hair after a Treatment. My desk faced this mirror. To calm my nerves I chose to spend some time meditating but at the time I had a great deal of trouble keeping my eyes closed during meditation so would begin meditation staring at a lit candle on my desk. The reflection of the candle flickered in the mirror and would always grab my eye so slowly I would move my eyes from the candle on the desk to the candle in the mirror. Within a week or so of doing this I began to notice subtle energy movements in the mirror and that led me to start looking at my own aura as it changed in my reflection. By the end of a month I was openly aura gazing as part of the meditation process and incorporating my chakra opening work into the aura gazing method. I often found myself getting the urge to write after making my aura connection, white lighting and connecting to a higher energy source way beyond the room. Many chakra balancing exercises include visualisation of the cord of energy coming down from the higher source out there in the universe and entering and surrounding your body and it was always having seen and felt this cord becoming strong that the urge to write would rush through me.

As I kept a notepad and pen on the tarot desk anyway to jot down anything I wished to return to while completing a reading with the client I decided one day that I should go with the urge to write and see what came. This is how my practice of tuning in to a client and reading them simply from their name began. I found that with their name written at the top of a page I could go both backwards and forwards along their timeline and gain information about them as long as I held the pen in my hand and allowed myself to feel the vibration of their name.

This was to become the start of every reading that I performed for a client. I always took a client’s full name and their nicknames if they had them along with their age as part of my booking process. I used the names to tune in and the age to place them in the present as a point to move backwards and forwards on their timeline. I found that I not only got accurate information about them but I also got answers to the questions they were coming to ask the cards about before they arrived. It was not unusual for a client to walk in the door, for me to explain my process and read out the information I had obtained clairvoyantly in the previous half an hour’s meditation and for them to then say ‘ Well you’ve answered all my prepared questions! Now I have to find new ones for you. ‘

Having covered the basic questions with accurate verifiable information about them the client was both often shocked /surprised but excited, and willing to go much deeper with their Reading than they had anticipated. Trust was formed between the client and I because I had already shared many of their truths, sometimes hidden and sometimes forgotten until brought up by my writing and because of this they felt that I both knew them and understood them so the usual barriers that exist between strangers were dissolved and hearts were bared.

I currently do not do face to face Readings but I will still occasionally use the writing process as a precursor to a Tarot Reading as I feel it tunes me to their energy at a much deeper level. There is a lot about you in your name, it is your story and it contains all of your information.

Where the cards themselves are concerned I have only one quirk and that is that between every single question I deal all the cards out into 9 piles to ensure that they are completely separated from the clusters they were shuffled into previously and then put back into one pile. Why 9? I really don’t know other than that I was drawn to that when I first started. Unlike some Readers I don’t mind others handling the cards, in fact I prefer them to because it is their energy that we are working with not mine and it’s their energy that I want influencing the card pulls. Also other Readers often read reversed cards but with very rare exceptions I don’t as I believe the cards when laid out tell your story both negative and positive regardless and as I personally don’t read storybooks upside down why would I read your life this way? These are though just Techniques, just as the Tarot are just Tools, and we all find our own way that suits us as Readers.

13 cards that show bad-luck, and how to handle them

Cards that show bad luck, and how to deal with them - 

Visiting a fortune teller is a roller coaster journey and the same is for seeing future for yourself “what the cards hold for you”. You always wanna hear good old mushy stories from the fortune teller. But seldom it turns out the same for you. You always might get some warning tones or alarming tones. Which you didn’t expect and didnt want to receive. 
Though I have listed a few cards here that I have termed as bad luck cards, they always don’t mean ‘bad luck’ in the reading. In Tarot I dont feel any card can show bare bad-luck, there is always some directions or guiding points that can help you to get out of that dooming condition which I would never term as prophecy. 
Also I feel that whenever there is some sort of misfortune being foretold by any method of fortune telling, there is always a way to deal with that. But yes ofcourse the expert should know to deal with that. 

Cards showing bad luck are - 
Though the cards coming up in a spread or reading dont always mean bad-luck is coming. The position in the spread also depends. And this fact should also be kept in mind that the cards are coming up based on the current mindset of the querent and it can always be altered if the person is determined enough to bring change in his life. Ofcourse the latter which I mentioned is a change that can be brought in by severe determination ONLY. Beliefs and perspectives that form in the human mind once are usually permanent unless the soul has strong determination to surpass minds  limitations.   
So here are a few cards that I feel show bad-luck, if not bad luck then some sort of discomfort or unexpected and unwanted circumstance. 

Swords cards will be the star of this article as they are the cards that don’t always show “great things are coming up”. They are the most disliked suit in the Tarot Pack. But if you try to understand this carefully “There’s nothing in this Universe that’s negative, everything exists has been created with positive energy of Divine”. You know that if there are some negative or cards that dont make you feel good, then they too have their own importance and significance. 
9 of Swords can be and is a devastating card to turn up in your reading. This card shows past, ongoing or upcoming devastating circumstances that might appear on materialistic level or just mental or emotional level. If its on mental or emotional level still the effects of this card will be devastating. With depressive thoughts and emotional states, hopelessness and alike. Ofcourse something like this is saying for your present or future or for someone else depends on the cards and their position. Not just this card can show this sort of situation. 

10 of Swords - 

10 of Swords another hero of this article. How many times this card has turned up and has brought in alarming future or brought to light the seriousness of current circumstances. 
10 of Swords might show present, upcoming or past situation where some body tried to do harm to you. It can most likely be physical harm but it can also mean emotional or mental hurt. Well if you are a tarot aspirant you needn’t freak out if any of these cards turn up. Go deep into the reading. These unwanted cards can reveal a lot and help you to take careful steps to help hop out of that situation.  

Reversed Wheel of Fortune -

Ofcourse fortune when appears flipped is going to show misfortune. Misfortune in terms that the good things that you feel should come to you are delayed or pushed away from you. This might be for several reasons. The things, people or situations you long for might not be the right one’s for you. You might be longing for them just on competitive basis or from ego. Real heart desires never fail to fructify. But egoistic choices will be hindered.  
Check out if there’s either of the above mentioned cases if you are facing misfortune. You will need to carefully analyse and then try to come to a conclusion. If its your heart’s desire that’s being hindered, then check what’s more that you need to add. A complete dish is allowed, if its just a half cooked dish then it won’t be allowed to be presented on a 5 star buffet table. 
World needs improvement and intense level of positivity and purity. If your dish doesn’t match to optimal levels of goodness, it won’t be allowed to pass. Check re-check until the misfortune label is finally removed naturally. 

So this card also shows misfortune? Yes it does show upto a certain extent. Not exactly misfortune. But yes if you have worked your ass off and then when the results are pushed away or halted without reason then you too will term that as misfortune. 
Though what everybody terms misfortune in different definitions. For people who have seen dire crisis and intensely negative situations then for them this card might not be that of a bad sign. They will be happy to wait or get delay in getting just the final result. But for a person who has been a die-hard achiever this card turning upside down might seem like a mountain turning upside down in their path. 

8 of Swords - 

This card also is of the Swords category and can be sweared for its misfortunate abilities. Lol yes, I did say that. But a little do you know of the learning this card has brought with it. And so looking at it with a negative eye is an easy escape.  
A broader way of accepting this card says that this card speaks to you clearly that you are in a situation where you have chosen to keep your eyes closed and hands and feet tied up. Unless you don’t have those limitations within you, that situation can ever be created outside you. 
Though you might choose to appear totally innocent and blame everything on the outer situation. But a little bit of digging will help to uncover the truth of your involvement.

Death -

This card I am not sure what category to put in. I have no good or bad feelings for this card. Clearly I feel this shouldn’t be a part of this Tarot Pack. LOL But thinking just anything isn’t a solution. Because Death is a part of human life, then how can you separate this card from the deck. 
This card when taken in a mundane way, is a misfortunate card. As it might show destruction and separation. But maybe if Tarot exists on higher realms then this card might be the most appealing card in those realms. As life on other planets isn’t the same as earth. And destruction means completion of cycle and rising to a greater divine self. So maybe this might be a celebrated card in other worlds.   

Tower is the super duper scary card that I can place in this league of cards. Tower is something that freaks me out. Yes there are reasons for it. Though its a card that simply says “Bitter Truth revealed” but in a greater way this card might be very devastating in what it brings. Though that devastation just breaks down false beliefs and systems and clears out way to let truth make its way. Still its easy said then done. 
I once got some really difficult to digest situation in my life, which was very very uneasy to accept. That happened about 2years ago. That was what I call life’s Tarot teaching lessons for me. Arghhhhh!! Tarot Classes are better :P lol 

Again another card that is like uncertain why its placed here. Lol because the card itself shows uncertainty. And it cannot exactly be termed as a misfortune. But this card actually shows uncertainty and actual clearing of way or appearance of clear picture isn’t clear. And so this card is put here. This card will halt some tasks, situations or opportunities indefinitely and thus can actually prove to be terribly unlucky card to have in important readings for business deals, relationship breakthroughs and things like.
Again saying the age old line here, because saying it is necessary. The intensity of this card and what its going to bring depends on the question, the position in the spread and other factors also matter. 
The hanged man has appeared so many times in my readings for my clients as well as for myself. This card has scoured the hell out of everyone’s terror and still doesn’t agree to budge from its position. I have had so many people complain of the unnecessary limbo they were facing for an indefinite period of time. With life just feeling stuck and to not moving forward despite of people being immensely good, doing good and giving good. 
Life still will remain stuck if you are not doing what you ought to do. So stop whining and get ready to get messy with your feet in mud and determination to sow right seeds in your mind .

Fives are the next big culprits after the swords. With the five energy shouting out loud that change is coming. It always isn’t that pleasing to have that change in life. Especially if everything in life is going good and you are wanting to stay in that honeymoon phase forever, its then that life strikes hard the cord of 5 energy. And you face this change in the relationship. 
You are not here to create Romeo-Juliet love story. Yes Love is what everyone deserves and wants in life. You can say its the food for the soul. But you cannot over eat on this emotion.  
People, resources or situations that you love will go away from your life if you just focus on dwelling on the love energy and emotion, the celebration of success or the goodness of a situation. 

Singing chorus to the above card this card also brings a change. But a different one. On the physical level. Either related to materialistic resources or your physical body. Either of the case change will be uncomfortable. But life always brings in something good or bad for a GOOD reason. Which you need to figure out. Materialistic world will not support your existence if a part of your existence endangers another existence that needs to survive.
5 of Swords - The next lines in our poetry are 5 of swords. These aren’t that horrific, they might make you feel good internally. As this card shows a winning or victory. Obviously in a wicked sense. Egoistically winning over situations and arguments and just trying to prove yourself right isn’t what you are meant to do. So loosing something in that situation is also foretold in the cards as well. Loosing the love of someone isn’t a good option against proving yourself right. 
You need to be grounded in this world with humanity as your core value and humble-ness as your core feature. Kindness and love are supposed to be brimming in each and every cell of yours for most of your lifetime. You cannot keep them at bay just because a few people acted unwise with you. When people don’t treat you in the right way remember its a lesson that you have brought with you to learn. You are not supposed to backfire them and shower them with the frustration that was actually brought in with you, to help you grow. 

The next in this series is the five of Wands. This card again shows a change in something, ofcourse 
In a way that is not going to be comfortable. But still again if you recall what I has told you before you will know that I said “Everything happens for a Reason” and so because this we can understad this card too in a righteous way. 
This card usually shows a conflicting situation that involves many people around you. It can be people at your workplace or in your family or neighboring places. But this looking at the card there is always something good about every card in Tarot. Which means you need to fish out goodness in this card as well. This card shows that conflict arises because all people involved might have different views or different ideas. All of which might be equally promising. And so no one wants to budge from moving back on their idea. Great isn’t it? We have 5 great ideas then just one. But it frustrates because we didn’t expect to get 5 different solutions to one problem. 

These are what I feel show upcoming bad-luck or show warning signs that your actions might result into that. But you just cannot sit and sob over these cards turning in your reading. These cards plus cards around them, position in spread + position of other cards in spread are also needed to be considered. And out of that only a whole meaning can be extracted. 

I know myself, when I started learning Tarot I used to hide away my deck whenever something unusual happened. Some negative card popped up or some other funny sign I got. But remember by doing that, you will only stop your growth and learning. 

If apart from these cards you have some additional cards that you feel can be added to this list of misfortunate cards then please mention them in comments below.
