Positive cards in the fears/negative feelings positions

  • Hi,

    I'm fond of covering my celtic, however I get problems interpreting my reading when I get positive cards (like the star) in the fears/negative feelings position.. Any ideas?

    Thank you 🙂

  • Pixxie,

    The angels I channel have asked me to interpret the hopes/fears position as "balance."

    Anything that is necessary to balance clearly will show that way, anything that is directly a fear will be obvious, too.

    For example, you mentioned the Star. I would interpret this (based on a reading for myself and in light of the other cards) as a need to regain my sense of hope, optimism, and vision for the future.

    Hope this helps.



  • Aha! Thank you, this clears up alot!

    Once again thank you very much!

  • This is my first post in the forum! I too have a question regarding positive cards in negative-type positions and visa-versa. In a 6-card Celtic Cross spread, using the Morgan-Greer deck, the Sun appeared in the 'what's going against you' position. I agree with Ahiyah, that the Sun never heralds negativity; however, in posting this question in other Tarot forums it was suggested that the meaning is that the querent is overly ambitious or too trusting or honest. Any thoughts? Similarly I have trouble with the 5 of swords in the "allies"position. Is anyone familiar with any guidelines to interpreting positive cards in negative positions and negative cards in positive positions? Sometime I feel the overall spread can set the tone for the answer. Thanks in advance for your help!


  • I don't know anything about Tarot. But just looking at your question, it seems, that your fears/negative feelings aren't what they seem--if you picked positive cards. I think this offers hope.
