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!

Wow! Just look at all those Major Arcana cards! First thing I want to say about this reading is that when we have loads of Major Arcana showing up it means big life changes, and some important lessons being learned.

It’s interesting how in the past few readings we’ve seen the Empress or the Queen of Rods at the center of the activity. Today we see the Knight of Wands. Knights can represent many things, they can represent people, and they can represent active aspects of their suit. The advice of the Knights is to take action but take it in the opposite way to what you normally would behave. For example, the Knight of Wands is known to act quickly, and sometimes impulsively. If  you normally are a quiet, slow moving, person who over deliberates before making a decision, then the message for you would be to take quick action. However, if you normally jump into a situation impulsively, now would be the time to exercise caution. Looking at the surrounding cards that influence the meaning of this Knight I would say that now is not the time to act without thinking. On the one side, we have the Tower which represents an event which changes the nature of everything. This is not the slow change of transition that we would find in the Death card, this happens fast, like having the rug pulled out from under your feet or being hit by sudden flash of insight like lightening.

On the other side of our Knight, is the Fool. The Fool often stands for new beginnings, starting fresh. He can of course also represent foolish behavior. Right beside the Knight of Wands who is the creative and charming king of foolish behavior, and combine this with the Devil card and the Temperance card in the middle row the message is pretty obvious. Impulsive and fool hardy behavior might be something that you have dealt with probably your whole lifetime. Some might say it’s one of your “demons”. Foolish  actions have gotten you into this mess. We see this in the Tower, and we also see this in that Eight of Swords on the bottom. The Eight of Swords is entrapment, but it also frequently is a trap of your own making. Being that we have the impulsive Knight of Wands and the Fool I highly suspect this is the case.

The lesson to be learned here of course is Temperance. This is certainly a challenge for you isn’t it? It’s not something the Knight of Wands is generally good at. Just look at that middle row. We have the Knight of recklessness in the middle with a Devil on one shoulder and an Angel on the other! If you want to avoid the entanglements of the Eight of Swords, its time to start listening to that angel!

Blessings!

The last few days we’ve seen the Empress in the middle of things. Today we have the Queen of Rods. This normally energetic, charismatic and busy woman is taking some time to herself away from the world to simply ruminate and contemplate over things. This is what we see in the Four of Cups on the left. On the right we have the Five of Coins which is an indication of falling on hard times whether these be financially, emotionally, or in the area of health or socially feeling like you are standing alone.

The middle row is about contentment and fulfillment in a happy home. Throwing another card over these for clarification it is the Hermit.

 

HermitlegAlong with that Four of Cups this is telling me that this normally active, creative and energetic person needs to just stay home and snuggle in and think things over for a while. While things feel bad right now (Five of Cups) you can still find joy and comfort in your home and family. While the Five of Coins is about feeling the lack of something, the Nine of Cups is about fulfillment. Sometimes that Five reminds us to look at the blessings we do have and right beside that Nine of Cups that sounds like good advice right now. Throwing another card down over the Five of Cups Is the Page of Swords.

 

pageswordsleg

Pages, like Aces embody the element of the suit. The Page of Swords tells you to BE truthful, BE honest, FACE facts, act ethically and do what you know is right.

This is reinforced by the King of Swords on the bottom. This King represents and truth. Where Queens represent inward feelings of a suit, Kings represent action and behavior of a suit. This King behaves in an ethical way. The Page tells you to BE honest, truthful and ethical, the King tells you to ACT honest, truthful and ethically.

I hope this helps.

 

Blessings,

Daily Tarot for June 3, 2013

Good Morning everyone!

 

Wow! Looks like some big new project is getting under way today! Something that’s going to make you some money!

A

5-swordsleg

In the top row we have two Aces with the Six of Coins in the middle. Aces in their very basic meaning stand for something new. The Ace of Wands is a huge creative surge. A new project to work on. The Ace of Swords is about New Ideas, and clarity of thought, or learning something new. Yesterday we had the Six of Coins and the Ace of Swords as well, and we saw that it was about truth and justice. This has a different feeling than yesterday when combine these two cards with the Ace of Wands as well as the Six of Wands and the Two of Wands in the middle row. This is about success, esteem, and victory with this new adventure that leads to a whole new feeling of personal power.

What we need to work on is that Five of Swords on the bottom. While there is victory and success, it doesn’t come without a price. (Again that’s also he nature of the Six of Coins… is there giving or taking?) The five of swords is success but at a cost. Who is losing out in this deal?

 

Blessings,

Daily Tarot for June 2, 2014

Greetings everyone. I hope you had a good weekend. Today we have a reading that has two basic themes running through it. The first is truth and justice and the other is resources, having and not having them.

We see in the top row that we have the Empress card in the same position she was in last week. This time she is flanked by Justice on the left and the Two of Swords on the right. In both of these cards the characters are drawn blindfolded. Justice because it is blind and what goes around comes around. There is nothing you can do about it, it is simply the natural state of affairs. The Two of Swords is a different story however. This card is about choosing to remain blind because you would rather not see. It’s about being so caught in the middle of something that you are frozen, not knowing what to do. Sometimes when that happens we’d rather close our eyes or look the other way because we would rather it would all just go away. Where the Justice card can be about preparation for making a decision, (looking thoroughly and weighing the pros and cons before jumping in with both feet) the Two of Swords is about the inability to make decisions. However, our next card in the middle row is the Ace of Swords. See also how this Ace is directly under the Justice card. This is about Truth and Justice in its purest form. It is time now to take off the blindfold and see the situation for what it truly is and making things right.

Justice is also about taking responsibility and paying old debts and with the Six of Coins right there I’d say the only way to settle this score is to pay up. The other thing about the Six of Coins however is that it can sometimes symbolize not having the resources you need. This is where the King of Coins comes in.  Steady, practical and reliable he might be willing to help you but you will owe him. This is what the Six of Coins is like, it’s that balance between having and not having and borrowing and owing. We see the scales in the Justice card and in the Six of Coins. Regardless of how you go about it, the scales need to be balanced and they will be one way or another.

Greetings everyone. Sorry the Daily Tarot has become somewhat sporadic the last while. Things have been busy with the end of the school year approaching and the transitions that take place at this time of year.

Our reading today is about learning lessons, letting go, and the decision to “go it alone”. In the top row we have the Seven of Cups, the Empress, and the Five of Wands. I’m going to focus first on the Empress, traditionally the Empress represents abundance, sensuality, and earthiness. She is the Mother Goddess and represents the Mother principle in the Tarot. Sometimes when she shows up in a reading she can quite literally represent the querent’s mother or a mother figure. What is interesting here, is that she is located between the Seven of Cups and the Five of Wands.  The Seven of Cups can symbolize a couple of things. It can symbolize choices, and being faced with too many of them so that we are confused and overwhelmed. It can symbolize fantasy and wishful thinking, sometimes to the point of not looking at reality and perhaps being caught up in addictive patterns of behavior.  On the other side of the Empress is the Five of Wands. We’ve had this Five a few times in the last while. It represents conflict, arguments, debates and it too represents confusion. Because we have two cards symbolizing “confusion” on both sides of the Empress, I just get the feeling this time the Empress represents a person who embodies the qualities of the Empress. Someone who is loving, nurturing, and wants to take care of others and help but she is confused as to what to do and perhaps conflicted about whether she should intervene or what role she should play. This Five of Wands may also represents arguments and struggles she is having not only within herself but with someone else.

The strong earthy sensuality of the Empress combined with the “over indulgence” of the Seven of Cups and the Seven’s tendency towards addictive behavior brings to mind repetitive cycles of behavior, and beside the Five of Wands there is this struggle to break the cycle. The “wishful thinking” aspect of the Seven of Cups hints at how you keep getting sucked into this cycle. Drawing another card for clarification and placing it on top of this row, it is the Strength card. You will need to find the inner strength to break this cycle.

In the second row we see the Hanging Man and the Seven of Swords. The Hanging Man is much like the fool, in fact he is the Fool of the second half of the wheel of the Major Arcana. He has learned some lessons and he wants to move on to a new path but he must make sacrifices to do so. In order to have a new beginning you must leave some things behind. What I find interesting in this version of the Hanging Man, is the depiction of what appears to be a mirror and an hour glass underneath him. The hour glass is at its half way point. The mirror of course is about self-reflection, and the hour glass half full begs the question, “Who are you really, and how do you want to spend the time that is left to you?” The Hanging Man always asks you “what are you willing to sacrifice to move forward?”

The card beside the Hanging Man is the Seven of Swords and underneath them both we have the Hermit. The Seven of Swords is another one of those cards that has multiple meanings and you need to really examine the surrounding cards.  This seven can represent dishonorable conduct. Shirking responsibility, letting others take the blame, lying, stealing, and covering one’s tracks… this sort of thing. There is a selfishness about this cycle of behavior. You’d better take a look at how it’s affecting those around you. (Often the Seven of Swords depicts a man taking all the swords away from others and keeping them for himself. Sometimes the others he is taking them from are children…) From a broader perspective it can also mean being the “lone wolf” and preferring solitude. This is reinforced by the Hermit in the bottom row. All in all, in order to break this cycle that we talked about in the top row, you feel you need to go your own way.

4-wandsleg

Throwing another card over these for more clarification we have the Four of Wands which often represents the joy that is experienced once you break free of bonds that hold you. The Hermit not only represents being alone, but also represents taking time for introspection. Think about all you have learned from this and take the time to examine these lessons (the mirror in the Hanging Man) and integrate them into your life. This is the wisdom of the Hermit.

 

I hope this helps!

Blessings,

Miria

Daily Tarot for May 27, 2014

 

Greetings all! I hope you all had a nice Memorial Day weekend.

Today we have a reading for someone who started on a new life journey expecting success and accolades, (maybe thinking it was going to be a piece of cake) but got more than what they bargained for.

A

2-wandsleg

In the top row we have the Fool, The Six of Wands, and the Ten of Wands. The Fool generally means beginning a new phase or starting a whole new cycle. There is a feeling of adventure, hope and faith about this card. Beside the Six of Wands we get the definite feeling that there was some measure of success surrounding this, or certainly a hope for great things but the Ten of Wands says that the work load was maybe more than what you were expecting, or that the task was much harder than you thought it would be and you are struggling. This is reinforced by the Six of Swords which often represents depression. This job is not what it was cracked up to be and the Six of Swords right beside the Hermit may also be telling you that you need to go on a little vacation. Spend some time in solitude and take some time to reassess and recharge. You might find that if you take some time to yourself you can return with more energy, and will be able to take a whole new creative approach. (Two of Wands.)

Blessings!
