I was inspired to write this post by a thread I encountered in one of our more popular forums, personal readings.

What happens after you've shuffled, dealt your cards and given the interp and then realize that a card is missing?

The popular opinion is to look at the missing card as guidance. I agree. Another popular opinion is maybe a higher energy intervening, or just chance; happenstance, directing you to your blocked energy.

I personally believe intend is more prominent. Going into a reading with the right energy, focus and intentions to seek a truthful answer is in my opinion key.

To me unkowingly starting a reading with a missing card in your deck means, that whatever doubts, fear you have in your path, regarding your specific question, needs to be eliminated and discarded. Out of mind out of sight.

You can also flip that argument and argue that a missing card represents meaning, that perhaps the querent is diluting his or herself. Not wanting to face the truth of the situation. A missing major arcana, or court card in my opinion, would most defitnetly represent this dilema. As its a popular belief among Tarot readers, that court cards in general, represent a person. Either the querent or a person close to the querent.

Take the time to reflect and let me know what you all think iam open to new insights

On a side note, it would be advisable to re do your reading in a few days if more than one card is missing in your deck. Always try to keep your cards in a special box or special safe place.

I know which thread ur refering to bc I just saw it and responded.

I've never encountered that problem so I could b talkin out my butt here ( ) but my own opinion was perhaps what the missing card symbolizes is missing from the querent's life. Like a blocked energy maybe?? For whatever reason its not something that's able to mainfest for them in their life. Does that make sense?

Like I said I've never had this problem. Sometimes when do readings for myself I forget to put those cards back in the deck and later on when I go to shuffle for another reason, I can sense when cards r missing. I've even counted them out to realize I'm right and put the missing cards nearby

Thanx for the encouragement everyone. Iam trying to get better at typing out responses on mobile; touch screen is a bit difficult. I feel all thumbs lol so please dont judge me on all my typos!!!

@shy virgo,

I agree with you. I think you make a valid and sound argument.

A missing card = the true blockage

But could it also be flipped to indicate a clue as to what is holding you back. That your fear/hold/blockage is just an "imaginary" fear? That all you have to fear is fear itself and its not real, not playing a crucial role once you take it put of the running, take it out from you mind (swords), physical/work (coins), heart (cups), passion (wands)

That once you eliminate that inner doubt... You can finally see the situation for what it is.

U know that could b true too as I'm sitting here thinking abt ur response. Like its may not b as simple as it can't manifest but maybe its up to the querent to manifest it. And querent can't do that bc of the imaginary fear associated with the missing card. ?? Last night I was reading something somewhere on the net abt manifestation and the mind. U can't manifest something if ur also blocking it at the same time. That correlates to what u just said about imaginary fears.

@shy,

Oh iam glad that made sense to you lol i was starting to wonder if my explanation might confuse. There is a method to my madness

Its only one theory. Whatever resonates more peacefully as truth to your intuition is what matters most

Always, let you inner knowledge of truth guide your reading interps. Your cards speak to you to deliver the message

The first deck that was offred to me and that I re-open recently to do readings was missing the 4 queens !

I search them everywhere. I still have the deck for sentimental reason but I find that troubling to have a deck without any queen in it. So for me, there is a message, whatever it is a block of energy or someting to search.

That is interesting.

I just noticed this morning that THE FOOL was missing from my deck. Of all cards THE FOOL! lol


The funny thing is that I am definitely lacking the courage to "leap into the unknown", so it made some sense the Fool was missing.

Is it common for cards to go missing?

On a different note, what if you are about to do a reading and a card pops out before you start?

@Randall: I always take 'popping cards' in account. I put them back in the deck, but take their energy into the reading. For me they pop out for a reason. Especially if the same card 'pops' a few times.
Very interesting thread by the way. Love Shyvirgo's take.
Not sure if anyone still reading this, saw it stopped right around Halloween

Maybe the popping card is actually your answer.

Hi : Yes. If that's what it means to you, I'm sure the cards then will start working with you that way. Perhaps you can meditate on that

Personally I like to draw some more cards for the refining of the answer, but I do feel they show up for a reason. Just one helps me, but I just take the 'popping' in account. I actually do quite often work with the 'popping cards' as a spread. So I ask a question, shuffle, wait for the popping and ask for a new question/position. Works really well for me.

But I love how everyone has their personal way to read and how the cards respond to that

What's your experiences been with the popping?

Often, people can just keep shuffling till one drops for a succinct answer.
