The Winds of Change

Greetings all!

Well, it seems the winds of change are once again blowing in my direction. (Quite honestly I wish they would blow somewhere else for a while.) As a result of these changes I will be taking some time off from my Tarot Blog before needing to settle into a new routine. When I return, I may feel the need to transition from daily postings to weekly postings, I’m just waiting to see which direction this particular gust will whisk me! In the meantime, blessings to all my readers!

Daily Tarot for June 18, 2014

Greetings all!

Back on Monday we had a reading about obsessing over not having enough and focusing on the material. Today this seems to be a continuation of that theme.

A

b

2-wandsleg

In the top row we have the Devil, the Six of Coins and the High Priestess. With the Devil and the Six of Coins together I’d say there is an obsession here over the issue of having and not having the resources you need whether that be in the areas of knowledge, power, or money.  The High Priestess can be a difficult card to interpret. She is about the mysteries in life. She is about trusting your inner guidance and represents that seed of hidden potential within. Sometimes you need to simply wait patiently and allow things to move at their own speed and take their own course.

The Two of Wands at the bottom represents personal power and achieving your goals, the key (see the key in the middle) to achieving those goals is in the middle row; communication (eight of wands) and love (Ace of Cups.) Keep your heart open, and keep the lines of communication open, and you will get the job done. (Three of Coins.)

Greetings all! Boy, this Eight of Swords has shown up A LOT lately hasn’t it? This seems to be at the crux of the whole situation. This feeling of restriction and powerlessness.

In the top row we have Temperance, The Ten of Cups, and the Queen of Cups.  Here we have a Queen who is kind, gentle, in touch with her emotions, and sensitive to the needs of others. The going has been rough, and she’s been holding things together with a strength of will, just putting one foot in front of the other. Along with the Eight of Cups there is this feeling of being caught between perseverance and just leaving it all behind. That’s why we see this entrapment in the Eight of Swords.

In the top row beside our sensitive queen, we have Temperance and the Ten of Cups. It’s time to just spend some time at home and take a break from that middle row.

 

Blessings,

Daily Tarot for June 16, 2014

Greetings everyone. I hope you had a good weekend.

We have a reading today that is quite involved. I needed to throw several more cards down for clarification as to what is going on.

Devilleg

In the top row we have the Chariot, The Two of Swords, and the Nine of Cups. The Chariot is about fast movement and trying to maintain control. See how the horses are two different colors and are moving quickly in two different directions? The Two of Swords we have seen quite often in the last while. It can mean feeling stuck in the middle, trying to avoid something by looking the other way or by closing our eyes to the situation. The Nine of Cups is known as the Wish card, basically it’s feeling satisfied because you’ve gotten what you wanted.

In the middle row we see the Justice card. We have seen this card together with the Two of Swords a few times and I’ve commented before on the blindfolds and the difference between the two. One is blind because there is a choice to avoid the situation and the other is blind because Justice works the way it works across the board over a grand scale. Whether you close your eyes or not, the reality of the situation exists and Justice will be had! It can’t be avoided! The Five of Wands is a card about struggles in the form of arguments and disagreements.

Down at the bottom we have the Devil who represents bondage or being enslaved to something. Interestingly, with the Two of Swords at the top it can also mean ignorance, or choosing to remain ignorant.

Throwing another card over the Devil, we have the Five of Coins.

5-coinsleg

 

As the Devil can also represent focusing on things material, there may be some of this going on here as the Five of Coins is about feeling the lack of something. Perhaps there is a fear of not having enough or an obsession with that feeling of not having enough.

2-coinsleg

Throwing another card over this is the Two of Pentacles representing trying to juggle things and keep them balanced. There is a real theme here of balance and trying to maintain balance and control and a fear of losing balance or control. We see it in the two horses of the Chariot, Two Swords, the Scales of Justice, and the Two of Coins.

Throwing another card over the Two of Coins we have the King of Coins. Perhaps we need the help of the expert in money.

Turning again to that middle row, we see Justice and the struggle of the Five of Wands. Again it looks like there is an argument about keeping things balanced. Throwing a card over these we have the King of Swords.

It seems we could also use the help of a clear headed arbiter to bring some clarity and sense to the situation.

I hope this has been helpful!

Weekend Spread for June 13, 2014

Weekend Spread for June 13, 2014

 

Greetings everyone. I can’t believe that the weekend is once again upon us. Where does  the time go?

A

4-wandsleg

Well, the first thing that jumps out at me with regard to this spread is “look at all the FOURS!” The Four of Swords, the Four of Coins, the Four of Wands, and the Eight of Swords which is of course four doubled, the Kings are the fourth member of the royal family of each suit, the Empress is the fourth card of the Major Arcana (her number is three however because the Fool is considered 0). If we look up the number four in numerology, it is a number of stability. It’s about patience, trust, building a foundation, dependability, and hard work. This is a number about discipline and order. Perhaps you are attempting to bring some order to an otherwise chaotic situation?

In the top row we have the Four of Swords, the Four of Coins and the Empress. The Four of Swords is about resting and recharging, recharging and taking a break before facing what is to come. The Four of Coins beside the Four of Swords puts me in mind of conserving resources. The Empress represents bounty and abundance. There is a feeling here that although this may be a time of abundance, you feel the need to hang onto what you have, conserving energy perhaps both in terms of emotionally and materially.

3-swordsleg

Throwing a card on top of these three for more information we get the Three of Swords, which is about heartbreak and sadness. You’ve been burned in the past so now you are not so trusting to give of yourself either emotionally or with your money.

In the second row, we have the Eight of Swords and the King of Swords. The Eight as we have seen in recent readings over the last couple of weeks is about the feeling of entrapment. This card is about confusion or feeling trapped by circumstances and feeling powerless. Perhaps to the point of feeling like a victim. This is certainly understandable looking at the Three of Swords and this top row where it looks like your generosity of heart and pocketbook has been abused. The Four of Wands on the bottom has a couple of different meanings. It can represent a joyful celebration, or what makes more sense in this reading with the Eight of Swords, it can represent release from an oppressive situation. It’s about breaking bonds and seeking freedom.

I believe the key to this freedom you desire is in the King of Swords. When Kings show up in a reading they are the active force of the suit. Kings tell us how to behave. The King of Swords is telling you to be analytical, just, truthful, and ethical. He is telling you that in order to cut to the heart of the issue you need to put emotional concerns to the side for now and make decisions with your mind and not your heart.

 

I hope this helps!

Greetings everyone. Sorry I missed yesterday, business mixed with computer difficulties… anyway…

Today we have a reading that is very much about having courage and self-confidence.

In the top row we have the Page of Wands, The Ace of Wands and Judgement.  The Pages and the Aces often represent something new happening and with the Wands that indicates creative projects or career. Judgement also represents newness in the way of fresh starts and new beginnings. In Judgement we shed the old and leave it behind to be reborn to new possibilities. It can also mean taking a stand and making hard choices. The Page tells you to have faith in yourself. Be confident and have that “can do” attitude! The Ace reinforces this. Have courage, be bold, know that it will all work out! The ace can also mean “take a stand”, and this is interesting because of what we see in the next row.

In the middle row we have the Seven of Wands which is about being assertive and acting out of conviction and standing up for what you believe in. The card beside it is the Seven of Swords which is very much in opposition to this. This card is about running away and shirking responsibilities. You may feel like you are torn between “going for it” and “turning tale and running”!  This just might be the nature of this hard decision that you may be facing in the Judgement card and you are agonizing over it in the Nine of Swords. So much so that it may be effecting your health. Another aspect of the Seven of Swords is the “lone wolf”. You may be feeling like you are going it alone in this, keeping others at an arms distance and wanting to take care of it by yourself.

Throwing more cards for more information we see the Knight of Swords. His message is to be direct and logical. The last card is the Nine of Pentacles. This card is about begin disciplined and taking a step by step approach in order to succeed. More than this it’s about self reliance and having made it on your own merit. This reinforces the message in the Seven of Swords about wanting to “to it yourself”.

In short, have confidence in yourself, be logical in your actions, follow a step by step process and have faith. You can do this!

 

Blessings!

Greetings all,

Our Queen of Wands is back! Today it looks like she has a decision to make. In the Justice card, she is weighing everything carefully. The Six of Swords often symbolizes movement from one place to another in hopes that things will improve. This can be emotionally or physically.

In the second row we have the Page of Cups and the Nine of Coins.  With regard to this move you are considering, (Justice and the Six of Swords), the Page of Cups is there to tell you to listen to your intuition as you ponder your alternatives. (Seven of Coins is about taking stock of where you are now and where you want to be. What are your plans for the future?) Keep your heart open and listen to it’s guidance.

The Five of Pentacles indicates that you may experience setbacks and challenges, and may feel insecure and that you lack what you need to accomplish your goal. Pulling another card for more information we have the Three of Coins. This is the master at work. You have the skills it’s just going to take work. The Queen of Wands tells you to have courage and confidence in yourself. You can succeed with hard work! It’s nose to the grindstone time!

 

Blessings!
