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 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!
The 4 of Cups represents self-absorption, apathy and boredom. You have been disappointed by somebody or something and now you’re emotionally stuck. You don’t like what’s in front of you and you can’t be bothered to look further than your own brooding mind. It is a shame because if you listen to the voice of wisdom, you will look up and see what you need is not far away.
The Knight of Pentacles is like a bulldog – once he bites down, he won’t let go. He’s dogged in pursuit of his goals. He’s a hard worker, has tremendous stamina and is dedicated. Every job is completed down to the last detail. On the other hand, this Knight can be stodgy and dull. He’s not known for his playful sense of humour. Work always comes first and he can be inflexible and obsessive about little details. He refuses to give in, even when he’s wrong (which he’ll never admit). This week, ask yourself whether this Knight’s energy is helping or hurting you – try to find a happy medium between his two extremes.
The Magician indicates that it is time to focus on your goals, applying your determination and skill to achieve those goals. Everything you need is available and you have the ability necessary. Move forward with confidence because this card suggests success in your endeavours. This is a magical moment filled with potential just waiting to be realised.
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 8 of Swords represents a situation in which you feel helpless. Problems surround you. You feel trapped and that no matter where you look, danger, obstacles and problems confront you. When you see this card, remember that you do have choices and you do have power. No matter how trapped you feel, you can find a way out if you believe it is possible. Solutions are not always easy, but they exist. Find your clarity of thought and purpose and use them to take the first step home.
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.
Justice represents the importance of your choices. Whatever decision or decisions you make now will have significant consequences in your future, so choose carefully. Rely on logic and reason to make the decision, rather than emotion. If you are experiencing good fortune, this card can be letting you know that your past actions made the good fortune possible. It could represent a legal situation that will be resolved in your favour. This card is also a reminder to balance your physical concerns with spiritual growth.
The Ace of Cups represents a gift of love. This can take the form of a new romantic interest, a creative desire or a spiritual awakening. At this time, your life is filled with possibilities and abundant, joyful emotions. All you need to do is embrace the moment and use that energy for the start of something wonderful.
The Devil card is rarely a pleasant one. It suggests bondage or addiction to a dangerous practice, substance, situation or person. Less extreme and less dangerous, it can represent overindulgences of any sort – eating, drinking, sexual activity, staying up late and so on. These may be healthy and this card could serve as a reminder to adopt more moderate practices. Being held captive by your passions might feel like fun for a short time, but such imbalance is never a good long-term plan.
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.
The Lovers represents a choice to be made. More importantly, it represents different ways to make decisions. When this card comes up, you are being asked to consider carefully how you make the important decision before you. Do you follow your heart? Do you do what makes sense? This card suggests that there’s a way to marry the head and heart so that wise, balanced decisions can be made. Weigh up the consequences of each of the choices before making your decision.
