When feats fail catastrophically

Are there guidelines or suggestions on how to handle truly spectacular failure with a feat or other sorts of theistic magic?

The gods of Glorantha aren't like those of greek legend, who watch their followers and reward and punish. Then again a theists relationship to the deity he/she emulates is very personal, and feelings of guilt may well bring down divine retribution even if an illuminate or a godlearner would say it's just the cultist punishing him/herself.

So when a Destor cultist tries to throw his opponent to the ground with a windblast and fails catastrophically... what happens?
