The good news is this can be avoided by remembering not to take these cards so literally. The positive connotations surrounding these cards should also be taken into account.
Tarot can sometimes Confuse You
The very thing that Tarot does its best can often be paradoxical in nature. The Tarot presents us with different possible paths and choices.

This could make you confused as to what you truly desire.
