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.
The Empress shows a time of natural growth. Your role is to nurture without forcing or neglecting your project. Pay attention to where you are in the cycle of your project or situation and take the proper steps. There is great potential for abundance if good care is given. This may require action on your part or it may require a time of waiting. The Empress encourages you to strengthen your connections with the natural world – keep your feet planted firmly in the Earth. She offers an array of delights – food, pleasure, beauty. She also suggests material reward but only with the understanding that riches go with a generous and open spirit.
The 5 of Wands is a card of combat, competition and strife, so be prepared. In this situation, people bring their different agendas and desires. Not all can be accommodated, so they have to fight it out to see what will be kept and what will be eliminated. You need to understand and respect your competition, to be confident in what you are fighting for and to conduct yourself with skill.
Judgement provides a call. You are being called to face your past before moving on. It is time to acknowledge whatever has happened, accept it, and let it go. You have learned so much and been through so much, you now have the wisdom and strength to free yourself from the past. A time for change is at hand – perhaps a new job, a new relationship or a new way of life. You’re in control and have decided to heed the call. You have the experience and knowledge to move forward. You just have to make your final farewells.
The 3 of Swords is one of those dreaded cards in a tarot deck, signifying heartache and disappointment. Life sometimes brings us these moments and this card signifies that. It represents a new, raw pain. It can be a major situation, such as finding your lover unfaithful, or a smaller one, such as cutting and hurtful words from a trusted friend. Swords represent truth and this is a case of the truth hurting very much.
The High Priestess is about knowledge that you need and that can be revealed. This knowledge is beyond logic. You must access and trust your intuition if you hope to understand it – relaxation and meditation are the ways to do this. Refrain from action for a while and instead take the time to search within yourself for the wisdom you need to move on. It could also mark the beginning of a spiritual journey. On a mundane level, it suggests sharing knowledge and not keeping secrets. This week, pay attention to the world around you. Look out for any signs or synchronicities and what they are telling you.
The Chariot is about victory through mastery. In this situation, there are opposing and conflicting forces, perhaps very powerful ones, that must be made to work in harmony to achieve a common goal. These conflicting energies may be within yourself or external. Either way, it is up to you to harness that energy and guide it to success. Focus and control your emotions or you may find yourself being pulled in many directions.
The 7 of Cups represents having too many choices, all of which seem very appealing to you. You are spending time dreaming about them, imagining what each would be like. Still, you cannot pick one. This card includes a hint that might help. You are drawn to these choices emotionally. Set aside those emotions for a moment and invite a little reason into the picture. While emotionally appealing, some of the choices may not be good for you. Choose wisely.
The 8 of Cups represents a very small but powerful moment in time. You’ve decided to leave something comfortable behind and you’ve come to terms with that. You’ve decided what dream you’re moving towards. This moment, the one where you finally turn your back forever and before you take the first step, is the 8 of Cups. It can be such a conflicted moment, filled with sadness over leaving, yet knowing you are doing the right thing. You no longer need to be linked to this difficult person or situation – but walking away requires great strength and courage. Are there any relationships or values draining your energy from which you need to walk away?
With the 7 of Wands, someone or something has put a block in your path. Before you can move forward and continue on your journey, you have to face a challenge. You need to be brave, strong and confident. This is not a fight to ignore; there is too much at stake. You cannot afford to give up and must defend yourself.
The 6 of Cups is a card of sweetness, kindness and innocence. It holds memories of happy times in the past. It can represent a time of sweet simple joys or it can be something larger. Perhaps a passionate pursuit or beloved creative endeavour that you let go of will return to your life. It could be a sign of someone from your past whom you would welcome back into your life.
The Emperor is about being in control. You are, or you should be, in control of your life, your environment, your body, your temper, your actions. You, and you alone, should be in control of your life at this time. This card gives you permission to be assertive, brave and bold. If you have already built a solid foundation, this card indicates that your goals will be realised. This card could also represent a leader that you admire and want to follow.
The Knight of Cups’ sensitive style is involved in a situation as an aspect of you, someone else or the atmosphere in general. Follow your heart and see where it takes you. Instead of dreaming, get up and do what your heart desires. Do you express yourself fully to people around you, even the ones that you are close to? If not, what holds you back? Tell someone how you really feel this week.
