Tarot: Overview for 2017

tarot2017

 

Greetings all! As many of you know I have been very busy with setting up and establishing my Holistic Healing business so I have not been posting Tarot as I used to. I have decided however to do a few postings for the year on the major turning points as we all feel this will be a very historic and important year in many respects.

I have started the reading with drawing one card for each month, then adding two more cards for more clarification.

January

january2017

In January we first see the Nine of Wands. The Nine of Wands is the exhausted warrior who continues the battle though he is weary. This is a card about feeling wary, being on guard, defending yourself and protecting others. It is also about recalling past attacks, being knocked down and getting back up again.

With the Nine of Wands we have the Four of Cups. This card has many nuances of meaning. In some respects it means looking within and self reflection and in some it is about apathy. It can also signal being self-absorbed and only seeing your own point of view.

The last card we have for January is the Page of Cups. When Pages show up in a spread they give advice on how to BE. This page is about being kind, loving and trying to maintain an open heart. This of course is a challenge given current political situation which is quite aptly described by the previous two cards. On a personal level, we must strive to maintain this open heart and be loving and act with loving kindness towards each other.

February

feb2017

In February we first have the Sun. This card is about moving forward with confidence. It’s about realizing truth and experiencing expansiveness and greatness.

With the Sun we have the Four of Swords. This is an opposing card to the Sun. The Four of Swords is about exhaustion, and the need to take a break in order to heal. It is also a card about accepting what is and preparing for the future. When the sun burns to brightly, this is exactly what we need to do in order to deal with what is coming.

The last card for February is the Knight of Wands. This knight is bold and courageous, but he is also foolhardy and hot tempered, and cocky. He is daring but he can also be brash. He angers easily, and he makes rash decisions. When court cards appear they can represent people, but they can also represent concepts or offer advice. The advice of Knights is in how to behave and what kind of action to take. With the Knight of Wands, if you tend to be a hot head, now is the time to show restraint and keep your cool.

March

march2017

The first card we have in March is the Wheel. This is a big Karma card. Here we come to the end of a cycle in order to start again. This is a turning point, and what goes around comes around!

The next card is the Tower, which indicates complete and sudden change, the crumbling of the foundation. Truths are revealed and can no longer be ignored. What was hidden now becomes exposed. This is sudden change that can create upheaval and chaos. Is this upheaval due to the behavior of the Knight of Wands? More than likely.

 

The last card for March is the Knight of Cups. Again Knights give an indication of action. This may be a time of high emotion but now is not the time to wallow. It’s time to be firmly grounded in order to deal with the tumultuousness of the Wheel and the Tower together.

 

April

april2017

In April we begin with the Nine of Cups. The Nine of Cups is the “Wish” card. Desires are fulfilled and there is satisfaction.

With the downfall of the Tower in March and possibly the resultant downfall of the Knight of Wands with it, we see now the rise of a strong, and charismatic King of Wands. This King is a bold leader who is creative and inspires others. Kings in a reading tell you to ACT a certain way as well. Now is the time to take bold and courageous action.

The Ten of Wands indicates that there is much heavy and tiring work to be done.

 

May

may2017

May begins with the Eight of Wands. This card is an indicator of fast action and communication. When this card shows up it means “it’s time to make your move”. Perhaps this is an indicator to the King of Wands that he needs to make his move at the beginning of May.

The Seven of Cups often is about confusion. It can also indicate wishful thinking. It’s time now to stop dreaming and take serious consideration of the options available.

The Six of Swords is a card about making the move towards something better. It’s about picking up what’s left in the wake of chaos and trying to make something out of it. This card often comes up in regard to recovery from trauma. It’s about getting your life back, coping, and moving ahead, (especially after the downfall of the tower)! In order to do this, we must stop with the pipe dreams of the Seven of Cups, face the reality of the situation and make some decisions.

 

June

june2017

In June we have the Seven of Wands. This card is about taking a stance of self-defense. Now is the time to show conviction and stand up for what you believe in.

The Two of Coins indicates that this is going to be a balancing act. It’s going to be important to be flexible to trying new approaches.

The Knight of Coins is a Knight about stability. He is cautious and hard working, but he also has a tendency to be inflexible and stubborn, which is not what is needed when trying to do the juggling act of the Two of Coins.

July

july2017

July begins with the Moon. We are still feeling the effects of the chaos of the Tower and the Changing of the Wheel. Things still feel shadowy, uncertain and disorienting. Sometimes it also means that things are happening behinds the scenes in the shadows that we don’t know about.  The Two of Cups is about a partnership, and the Three of Swords is about betrayal. There are certainly shady things going on.

August

august2017

In August we see the Judgement card. The time of the reckoning is at hand. Decisions must be made and a whole new fresh start is at hand. The Nine of Swords indicates that there are regrets and remorse along with a good deal of worry. The Two of Swords indicates that it is now time to remove the blind fold in order to see the truth so that those big decisions can be made with honest clarity.

 

September

sept2017

We see the continuation of the feeling of Loss and Regret in the Five of Cups. The Fool indicates that this is a time now to set aside those regrets and start new and fresh, just as is echoed in the Judgement card earlier. This is the beginning of a new cycle.

The Four of Wands about celebration and getting out from under an oppressive situation. It’s about freedom, self-determination and jubilation!

 

October

oct2017

In October we can see the new adventure ahead of us in the Three of Wands. It’s time to take bold new and exciting steps. This is reinforced by the Page of Wands who is about new projects, and taking courageous risks. It’s time to move in a new direction with confidence! The Nine of Coins is about having learned discipline, self control and restraint to achieve a goal.

 

November

november2016

In November we have the Queen of Cups. Queens indicate feelings of a suit. This Queen is in touch with emotions. Now is the time to be sensitive and compassionate to others. This has been a long haul, and it’s time to dispense with anger and hatred.

The Eight of Cups indicates it is now time to let go and move on.

The King of Swords tells you to act in a just and ethical manner. He is a leader who works against corruption and dishonesty.

 

December

dec2017

In December we have cards that all point to new beginnings. The Page of Coins is about planting new seeds and the three of coins is about watching those seeds grow and multiply! The Six of Coins reminds us to be mindful of the balance of power. Just for good measure, I pulled one last card and it is very good indeed. The Ace of Coins. Prosperity, trust, abundance, stability and growth!

Weekend Spread for February 26, 2016

Good morning all! I hope this post finds everyone well! Today we have an interesting reading as some of the same cards came up that we saw last week, which lets me know we are dealing with the same issue but maybe now from a different perspective or simply with additional information.

 

In the top row we have The Ace of Wands, The World and The Devil. You know what you want. You have the drive, and you have the creativity to achieve your goals now you need to work on overcoming the fear that is holding you back.

In the second row, we again see the Three of Coins and the Seven of Coins that showed up last week. Keep that nose to the grindstone! In some decks, the Three of Coins shows three men making a deal. Sometimes that three doesn’t only mean work hard, sometimes it means it takes teamwork to get the job done. Ask yourself who you can partner up with that would be a mutually beneficial partnership. The Seven of Coins tells you to look back at everything you have managed to accomplish so far and take it all in. Stand proud. You’ve done a good job!

The Six of Cups is letting you know that someday, even though it seems to be a lot of work and tough going, when all of this is over you will look at this time in your life with fond memories and realize it was all worth it.

 

Blessings all!

Weekend Spread for February 5, 2016

Greetings everyone! I hope you are all well! Today we have a reading for someone who seems to be “sitting on the fence”.  You may be feeling caught between two people or not certain on how to proceed in a situation. The 8 of Coins indicates that you think you may want to handle the situation on your own, but the King of Cups indicates that you also feel that maybe you need some advice from someone wiser than yourself.

The Two of Coins demonstrates how you are trying to do this balancing act between the two ways to go. The Five of Wands is about miscommunications, disagreements, and generally quibbling over details. The situation really seems to be a mess that needs sorting out. The Emperor at the bottom is an indication that it probably really is time to get some arbitration on the matter from someone who isn’t so closely involved.

 

Good luck!

Today we see a cycle coming to a close. The closing of this cycle is not simple though. There is some worry about it. Lots of questions and thoughts going through the mind perhaps even keeping you awake at night. This seem to be moving faster than you would like. The key here, as we see in the Eight of Wands, is keeping the lines of communication open. Talk about it. The page of cups in the second row is about keeping an open heart and trusting that you have the skills to keep it all in balance. This is what we see in the Two of Coins. The Hermit on the bottom is advising you to take some much needed time to yourself to process and rest as this cycle ends.

Blessings all!

Greetings all! Sorry I missed last week. Had some stuff to take care of!

This week is a three card spread. What we have is the Eight of Swords, the Seven of cups and Rebirth which is Judgement in the traditional deck.

This reading if for someone who is going through a profound change. The Eight of Swords is about feeling trapped. Perhaps trapped in an old way of thinking, trapped in a job, trapped in a relationship, trapped in a cycle. The Seven of Cups is about having choices, but it is also about wanting to keep all the options open but yet not really committing to anything. You must narrow it down to the path that will lead you out of this bondage that we see in the Eight of Swords. Once you have made a decision and sharpened your focus, you can start upon that new path, which we see in the card of Rebirth. Everything you have done, everything you have experienced has led you to where you are now and who you are now. It’s time to start new and fresh with a whole different perspective.

Blessings on this new path!

Weekend Spread for June 12, 2015

Greetings all! I hope you have had a wonderful week! We have a short, three card reading today as I have “Mom” duties to attend to which will require  a lot time spent in the car… many of you know how THAT goes!

Today I am doing something a bit different in that because it’s a simple three card reading, I am incorporating the reversed meanings. I often don’t do this as my feeling is that the cards are equally balanced in both the “positive” and “negative” (for want of better terminology) energies and often the meanings are indicated by the surrounding cards. With three cards however, I have found that there can be more accuracy in pinpointing the meanings by including the reversals.

A

So here we go.

We have the Two of Wands reversed, the Wheel of Fortune reversed and the King of Wands. This is pretty straightforward. The Two of Wands reversed indicates a feeling that you have either been thwarted or blocked from achieving your goals. There are always going to be bumps in the road so if you feel like your original energy and enthusiasm for this project has waned you need to dig deep to find that excitement again. The Wheel of Fortune reversed certainly makes it feel like you’ve been down on your luck in this area. Things just don’t seem to be going your way and along with this reversed Two, maybe you are feeling fearful that this may not work out as you had originally anticipated or that you are being reminded of past failures. You may also be feeling like you are “being run over” by events you really can’t control and being that you like to be in control (King of Wands), this can be upsetting because it really leaves you feeling powerless. That King of Wands however, is there to remind you that this isn’t so.

Yes indeed, we like to think we can control all the events in our lives, but we just can’t. What we can control is how we react to them. This King is there to remind you of your strengths. You are a strong, confident leader that people look up to for guidance. He makes the hard decisions and he’s the “when the going gets tough, the tough get going” kind of guy. **it happens, The Wheel reversed and the Two of Wands reversed is a set back and a stroke of bad luck but that King says “pull up your boot straps, and let’s get moving!” Remember the long term goals. Those are the ones that really count. There may be detours along the way but the end result is what you are aiming for.

I hope this helps.

Weekend Spread for June 4, 2015

The Lost Goddess: an Introduction to Rediscovering the Divine Feminine Through Ancient Mythology

Here’s our reading for today:

queencupsleg

In the top row we have the Page of Swords, the Nine of Cups and the Devil. This is an interesting combination. The Nine of Cups and the Devil together make me wonder if someone has been indulging themselves too much, possibly even to the point of addiction. The Page of Swords is there to tell you that it’s time to take responsibility for your behavior, and the Lovers in the Second row reminds you that you DO have choices. The Knight of Swords says you need to “cut the crap” and take a hard look at your behavior and the trouble it is causing. That Page up in the Corner supports this in that he says it’s time to face issues head on.

Looking at this grouping of the Lovers, the Knight of Swords and the Queen of Cups I’d say we are looking at a relationship. This Knight of Swords might be smart and head strong but he can also be tactless, and rude with a superiority complex. If this is you, and you find people avoiding you, and maybe in this case, your partner (that Queen of Cups at the bottom) doesn’t want much to do with you both in and out of the bedroom (Lovers and Nine of Cups together can indicate sexuality…) then it’s time to balance those “opinionated jerk” aspects of the Knight of Swords and dig deep to find that softer, side of yourself.

c

Throwing more cards down for more information, we see that if you don’t make some changes this is going to lead to continued disagreements (Five of Wands) and possibly even the end of your relationship (Death). Two of Coins says now is the time for balance and the Ace of Swords says it’s time for a hard look at the truth. Throwing one more card, on that Queen of Cups what we see now is the Knight of Cups. This just reinforces that your mate is really needing you to reconnect with that more sensitive, fun-loving and romantic side to yourself. Remember that guy? He’s under the armor somewhere.

Hope this has been helpful.

 

Blessings,

Miria
