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 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 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.
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 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.
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 Page of Cups is Cupid bringing you opportunities for love. He delivers real chances to experience romance, deep feelings and the inner life. In readings, this Page suggest that an opening may appear that stirs your emotions, pulls at your heartstrings or brings you great joy. When you see such a chance, act on it! Take some time out to do something creative, maybe read a book about poetry, sign up for an art class or spend some time with a child and let out your own inner child. Have fun!
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?
The Temperance card suggests that you watch your balance. Take the time to make sure that your reactions, decisions and words are appropriate for the situation at hand. You are advised to practise moderation and patience. This is no time for extreme behaviour or melodramatic gestures.
The Queen of Swords will always tell you exactly how it is. Above all else she admires honesty, and she lives by her commitment to being truthful. She is experienced in the ways of the world, good and bad. She prefers being straightforward and direct. Her observations are candid, but never hurtful. In fact, this Queen has a delightful sense of humour. She likes a good laugh and always has a witty comeback ready. This week, think and feel as this Queen does. For example: Are you being completely honest? Do you see the humour in the situation? Are you getting right to the point? Have you figured out what’s really going on? Say no to the things you really don’t want to do but usually end up doing to please others.
The 6 of Pentacles deals with giving and receiving. Depending on your situation, this card can have different meanings. If you have a need, that need will be met by a gift, donation or through some unexpected source. If you are seeking aid, such as a scholarship or loan, this card is a favourable omen. If someone approaches you for help, you will find yourself in a position to provide it.
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 9 of Pentacles represents the achievement of good things. Not only have you prospered, but you’ve done so in a way that you feel good about. You appreciate and cultivate the best of everything life has to offer, physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. This card can also indicate the enjoyment of simple but decadent physical pleasures and treats.
