Hi! Looking for advice on an incorrect reading.
A few days ago, Iaskedmy tarot deck for insight into my near future regarding a local art gallery I applied for. The deck revealed a number of positive cards that lead me to interpret that my work would be accepted for the upcoming exhibition, so combining this, some manifestation practices, and general confidence in my personal abilities, I figured I was near guaranteed to get in.
(I also used some runes/oracle deck for good measure. They provided similar answers/general positivity.)
Imagine my disappointment when I was not selected for the exhibition.
Not to brag, but I consider myself to be a talented artist. There were plenty of candidates that were on a similar (or straight up "better") level that were accepted, yet I also saw some accepted work that made me question how the judges chose them.
Anyways, rambling short -- multiple previous excursions with the deck have shown me that the deck is pretty truthful. Even when I didn't want to interpret cards correctly and see them for what they were. So I have a few questions andlooking for some outside perspective:
- Do you think the deck was telling me what I wanted to hear (Despite that I don't think it's done that before), or was I telling myself such?
- Was the deck looking at the most likely outcome and I ended up with the non-positive timeline?
- Should I re-enchant my deck(s) to "recalibrate" it, and if so, how?
I consider my tarot deck to be an enchanted object in a similar way that one used to connect with telephone operators. They both "flip switches" that provide you with what you're calling for. I consider myself an apprentice reader, but I have improved since it first started as a hobby a couple years ago.
I don't think I had interpreted the cards incorrectly given my situation. I'm thinking I should just take the Land accept it as a one-off. It's not that I'm doubting my abilities as an artist or reader, but at the end of it, I am disappointed that I wasn't accepted into the exhibition.
Has anyone had a similar experience when reading for themselves? Advice or insight would be appreciated.
