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 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 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 World is about big achievements. It promises the wonderful conclusion of long-term projects and the realisation of goals. Success, completeness, satisfaction and fulfilment are woven into your life. It’s time to fully close the door on the past and move to the next stage of your life. This card can also indicate major trips and extensive travel.
The Queen of Wands is always attractive, often good-looking and has many admirers. Her energy is contagious. She tackles every task with dedication and commitment. She is always upbeat and cheerful – ready to look for the positive in the situation. Her life is full and busy, and she prefers it that way. She keeps up this pace because she is radiantly healthy and fit. She is often a good athlete, being naturally strong and coordinated. Although she’s never arrogant, the Queen of Wands has a deep faith in her own abilities. Her quiet self-assurance comes from the knowledge that she can accomplish whatever she sets her mind to. This card asks you to think and feel as she does. For example: Do you feel attractive? Do you believe in yourself? Are you full of energy? Can you shake off the blues? Are you gung ho about life?
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 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 8 of Wands is full of fast-moving potential. You need to be ready to spring into action! Whether you’ve set up things ready for action or you’ve been watching for your opportunity, the moment has come. Things may seem chaotic, but just jump in, maintain your focus, trust your instincts and you should do well. If there’s something you’ve been putting off, this is the time to do it. Stop making excuses and just do it! This card can sometimes indicate getting news or information you’ve been waiting for or quick, unexpected trips.
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 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.
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 5 of Cups shows a time of difficulty and loss. More specifically, it is about how you deal with loss. Every loss initiates change and is an opportunity for growth. Loss hurts because of our emotional resistance to change. This card represents that moment. But it carries a word of advice: look at the wonderful opportunity around you and move forward.
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.
