Have a great week!
I’m now offering two types of personal tarot readings by email: monthly insight readings and weekly love readings! You can also follow me on Facebook and Instagram for daily tarot guidance and interactive fun.
Perspective (also known as The Hanged Man) can represent, very simply, sacrifice. You may be asked to give up something for the sake of someone or something else. This card can also indicate the need for a change in thinking of a new point of view. Or it can be a more spiritual activity, one where you give up something of yourself to gain spiritual wisdom. It can also mean, almost literally, a time of suspension, a time where you should do nothing at all. There may be a need for a new perspective – things seem very different when looked at from a different point of view.
The Ace of Swords is the gift of knowledge and understanding. You can expect a flash of insight or an idea that will help solve a particularly sticky problem or experience a moment of truth. If you want to communicate something with clarity and just the right words, the energy to accomplish that is present at this time. It can also represent a new point of view, discovery or intellectual achievement. Take action on something you’ve been avoiding for fear of failure.
The Guide (The Hierophant in most traditional decks) often represents learning with experts or knowledgeable teachers. This card also stands for institutions and their values. It is a symbol of the need to conform to rules or fixed situations. The Guide card can show that you are struggling with a force that is not innovative, free-spirited or individual. Groups can be enriching or stifling, depending on circumstances. Sometimes we need to follow a programme or embrace tradition; at other times, we need to trust ourselves. Listen to what people have to say, but keep an open mind and take only what resonates with you.
The 3 of Wands indicates great vision and foresight. You have taken an idea and started implementing it. You have laid the groundwork for a new business, enterprise, career or project. You can clearly see your goal. Take a step back and watch for initial responses. Because you’ve done your work well, you can expect to see signs of success.
The Page of Swords represents someone who is curious and wants to know everything. This card suggests you open up your thinking. It is an ideal card for problem-solving and thinking out of the box. Look out for messages about problems, solutions and perhaps some gossip. Be patient and don’t rush into anything. Listen to what people have to say with a rational head – don’t take things too personally.
The 6 of Wands is a card of victory. Whatever you have set your hand to will prosper and you will be happy with your success. It will be personally satisfying but it will also be crowned with public recognition in some form. The acknowledgement will make this moment even sweeter. Accept compliments this week, without feeling embarrassed or being immodest. Acknowledge and accept other people’s praise of you!
In the face of troubling events, the Star offers guidance. As you emerge from troubled waters, you’ll find clear signs showing you the way forward. Now is the time to stop focusing on what has happened in the past and look instead to the future. The universe is telling you a transformation is at hand. You just need to reach out and take it. Though you may not see it, something beautiful is going to come out of whatever heartache and loss you’ve had to endure. Ask the universe for what you want and then let go. Trust it will provide.
The Moon is at once dreadful and beautiful. It represents dreams, instincts, intuition and fears. Its gentle light provides both illumination and shadows. This light can cause things to seem either safer or more dangerous than they actually are. Be prepared to be both frightened and inspired. Carefully separate your intuition from your fears and follow your intuition. Pay careful attention to your dreams at this time as they may hold important messages. Great inspiration is at hand, but it won’t be an easy journey.
The 6 of Swords represents moving from rough to smooth. You are leaving a bad situation and heading towards resolution. Although you are headed in the right direction, this card reminds you to remember the troubles you’ve gone through and to learn from them. They are all opportunities for gaining wisdom. This card can also suggest a trip or change of scenery.
The Knight of Wands is impetuous, impatient, generous and ambitious. He is willing to go anywhere and do anything and is happiest when he has a clear goal. He is probably very popular and the type of person people like to be around. On the other hand, he can be unreliable. Because he is impatient and impetuous, he can lose interest in the task at hand and run after the next shiny new challenge. Use this Knight’s energy to your advantage. If you’re in a rut, try something new. If you get bogged down by details, try winging it for a change. Again, on the other hand, if you’re angry and impatient all the time, or cocky rather than confident, it may be time for a change.
The Queen of Cups has a kind word for everyone and never reacts with anger or impatience. There is a gentleness about her that soothes and calms. Compassion is her watchword. Her reactions to the world are guided by her feelings. She lets her heart lead the way in all matters. Her love embraces everyone and everything. This month, try and think and feel as she does: Are you aware of the emotional climate? Are you feeling loving? Do you trust your heart?
The King of Pentacles indicates that, for some of you, your hard work has paid off and you are financially secure. You may need to play the role of provider to someone, either personally or professionally. It may be that a project comes up which requires you to use facts and figures instead of your creative side. For others, if you are having financial issues, draw up a realistic plan of action on how to make use of your resources. Set your priorities straight. If you haven’t already done so, look into making your will.
