Question: What Tarot card do you dread pulling the most?
I’ve given this a lot of thought and can honestly say that I don’t dread any particular Tarot card in a reading, generally.
What I DO dread is a Tarot card coming up in a positional value in the spread that clearly means the exact opposite of what the Querant hopes to hear. That’s tricky: giving the information in a way that supports the client, but, at the same time, remains honest to the interpretation of the card.
Many years ago, I did a reading for a friend (that was probably my first mistake lol!) straight after her husband left her for a woman that he’d known for 6 weeks. SIX WEEKS!!! What an INSULT!
The majority of the cards that came out were upside down and the only card that was rightsides-up was the Queen of Swords. THAT was a difficult reading to do!
I think that if you use pre-selected positional values within your spreads, then this really does test your metal as a Tarotist. There’s a big difference between having a card like, say, Death, as your incoming influences than your outgoing influences!
That’s not to say that I never work without positional values – when you do the Opening of The Key Spread, for example, it’s a complex wee beast that would be really hideous if you had to start allocating values to each of the cards!
….and of course I can say, hand on heart, that the appearance of Court Cards no longer leaves me quaking in my boots!
So, over to you now – which card do you dread pulling the most? Or, if you’re ok with all the cards, what situations in a Tarot reading leave you hyperventilating into a brown paper bag with fear?!
The Tarot’s Court Cards are my specialist area. They talk to me.
Not LITERALLY though ….
