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 2 of Swords represents a difficult situation. You are dealing with two conflicting ideas or a challenging decision, but you are not willing to face the situation. You’ve closed your eyes to it. Rather than view it rationally, your emotions are distracting you. This situation would benefit more from a rational decision than from an emotional one. This card can also represent a truce or stalemate. What decision are you not wanting to make? Why? Be decisive.
The 7 of Swords represents the desire to run lone and free – to abdicate responsibilities and do whatever you please! You sometimes feel that you will be more effective and comfortable on your own. If you do feel inclined to act alone, be sure that this isolation really works for you. Perhaps you’re running from something? Commitment, responsibility, hard work? You could be procrastinating because you just don’t want to deal with a certain situation. Running away and burying your head in the sand is not a solution.
The Ace of Wands shows that a bold seed of enthusiasm has been planted in your life although you may not recognise it yet. When the seed sprouts it could take almost any form. It might be a creative idea, a surge of optimism or a need to act boldly. It could also be an offer, gift, opportunity, encounter or synchronistic event. This week be daring and brave. Sometimes you have to risk to get what you want. Seize the initiative and let your enthusiasm take you to new heights. A time of passion is beginning.
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 2 of Cups promises a strong and passionate relationship. Such a relationship brings beauty and power to life. While this can be a romantic relationship, it can also mean any such union of people, groups, ideas or talent. The key here is the coming together of two things that creates a third thing that is, in and of itself, powerful, beautiful and passionate. Let your most important relationships know how much they mean to you.
The Hermit is about seeking the truth. Your truth. You need to withdraw from a situation for a time. Use this time to review all your knowledge, understanding and experience. When you figure out how it all works together, you will have the answer you need. Be careful that your solitude is not you hiding away from a situation or that you are hiding because you’re too proud to ask for help.
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 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 10 of Swords says in no uncertain terms that, finally, it’s over. You have fought and worked at it, but you cannot change the situation; there is no fixing it. You may want to try one last time, but you will have to accept that this time you are beaten. It’s a strange moment because you thought you’d feel a lot more pain and distress, but you actually feel calm and peaceful. Deep down, you are relieved you don’t have to fight it anymore. If you’re feeling tired and depleted, book yourself in for a massage or acupuncture to help you release any stress.
The 10 of Pentacles represents a strong, secure foundation, usually based on family ties, whether a home or business. It also deals with legacies, received and given. You may either receive a legacy or small winnings to invest for the future. Or you may acquire a home or business of your own, creating security for you and your loved ones. Another possibility is investing in the community in some way, through a scholarship fund or civic improvement. This could play out several ways, but however it does, it’ll be good, prosperous and beneficial to you and your loved ones.
The 9 of Swords is about those worries that keep you up all night or wake you suddenly in the early morning hours. Thoughts, worries, guilt, anguish or concerns fill your mind and create havoc. You seem unable to settle your mind. The lack of sleep adds to the situation, making you feel even more vulnerable. Confront your fears as they are not as scary as you have imagined them to be.
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.
