Reversed Ten of Wands

Difficulties and intrigues block your way when the card is reversed. You are likely to feel let down by someone you have trusted, although possibly this is your own fault for having abused their trust in the past. It is time to rethink the direction of your life.

Seven of Pentacles

The seven foretells a truly rewarding time. The possibilities before you are quite awesome, but do think in the long-term. Decide who you are and what you would like to be remembered for by your family and friends. The choices you face are that important. Destiny is at work.

Queen of Wands


Mar 27, 2013
Queen of Wands

The Queen of Wands is a mature, practical person with a great down-to-earth wisdom. Charming. sympathetic, and graceful, she is less outgoing than her bold King, but has very strong character and self-possession. She gets things done by talking to individuals rather than groups, and thus getting below the surface of events. Often she is the real leader of a group without it being noticed.

Reversed Moon


Mar 26, 2013
Reversed Moon

The Moon of inspiration rises over the gateway to the unconscious while dragons serenade it and the crab or crayfish of Cancer hesitates, scared of leaving it's natural medium. This card suggests the need to shake off convention and follow your instincts and intuitions. Pay attention to your dreams, because they will be full of hints of how to address the major issue that has arisen, or is about to.
Confusion, uncertainty, misjudgment, and deception all bring a feeling of chaos, even madness, into your life, but there is no great danger of it getting serious. Health could also be a worry, but on all fronts patience and rest are the best remedies. Content yourself with small achievements until the mood passes.

You benefit from triumphant and well-earned success as careful plans and hard work bear fruit. Be magnanimous in victory, and your moment of glory will be prolonged. This is no time for remembering petty insults and injuries suffered along the way because if you forget them, so will others.

Four of Pentacles

Four of Pentacles

Due reward comes after a long struggle, but you need to shrug off any lingering bitterness or sense of grievance if you are to enjoy it. There is some danger of you becoming a miser. Enjoy your good fortune, but also share it with others who probably did far more for you during the difficult times than you realized.

The Sun


Mar 23, 2013

The Sun

The Sun radiates its blessing upon the world, its benevolent dragon breathing warmth and life into nature. The garden wall by which the children happily play signifies the shelter provided by an ordered world.

Gold, opulence, and splendor come your way, but a rival is threatening your position. Resist the urge to score points and your enemy will end up exposing their own pettiness. Competitiveness is healthy up to a point, but can become destructive if taken to extremes. Double-check everything you do, and the situation will resolve itself.

The garden wall by which the children happily play signifies the shelter provided by an ordered world. The card symbolizes the joys of peace and civilization that allow all things, not at least the arts, to bloom. Amid such conditions almost any new enterprise you contemplate will flourish.
There is a great and achievable ambition almost within your grasp, but obstacles block the way. Perseverance is called for, and careful planning. This no time for great leaps forward, but for concentrating on one sure step at a time and being patient about your goal.

Seven of Wands

Success is likely, even though all the odds appear to be stacked against you. Victory will be all the sweeter for the effort it takes you, and sweeter still if you just quietly get on with doing whatever is necessary without complaint. Others may be trying to undermine you, but just talk things through with them openly and the threat will go away.

Difficulty and embarrassment at the beginning of a new business venture is suggested by this card, but the prospects are very promising if you are prepared to put in the hard work and resist making reckless gambles.

Reversed Fool


Mar 18, 2013
Reversed Fool

The Fool represents the wild optimism of youth, rushing into adventures with no thought for the consequences. Although this impulsiveness often leads to disaster, especially in mature people who should know better, it is what makes the world turn. The dragonet snapping at the Fool's foot symbolizes his cautious conscience, warning him not to get too carried away and fall off the edge.
A new beginning with fresh adventures ahead, although there is a very real danger of it all going horribly wrong. The bag on the Fool's shoulder represents natural talents that he could employ usefully if he took the trouble to open the bag, but he generally doesn't. For wild optimists this card is a warning to try to temper enthusiasms with a little common sense. For pessimists, it suggests lightening up a bit.

Reversed Hierophant


Mar 17, 2013
Reversed Hierophant

The Hierophant represents a leader of established religion. He is the natural counterpart of The High Priestess, but he has formal and even political power that often blinds him to the spiritual values he guards. While often providing real community comfort to his followers, obsession with history and tradition often blinds him to new spiritual developments.
Reversed, the Hierophant becomes unconventional but also weak, gullible, and unreliable. In a spread, this card often indicates a need for unconventional solutions, but may warn of treachery from colleagues and superiors. Postpone long-term commitments until the situation clears.

Reversed Strength


Mar 16,2013
Reversed Strength

The female subduing the dragon represents humanity taming its wilder instincts and channeling them to useful purpose. Unlike St. George who merely killed his dragon, she tames hers and gains its respect, adding its strengths to her own and becoming invincible. She is related to Artemis, or Diana the Huntress, and other pagan Queens of the Beasts.
Strength reversed reveals wasted effort, failure, and the possible alienation of others through the abuse of power. In the reversed card the dragon has won the battle and the woman has become tainted by self-interest. By losing sight of any larger goal she loses the sympathy and the support of others. Here, restraint, modesty, and patience are called for.

Daydreaming threatens to distract you from pressing decisions that need to be made soon if you want to realize your hopes. Imagination is a wonderful faculty, but there is always a danger of it degenerating into mere wishful thinking. Divide your plans into distinct practical stages so that you can tell when they start to stray too far from reality.

It is now time for a well-deserved rest and the enjoyment of good company. Your plans were well-laid, so you can allow yourself to bask for a while as you see your ideas take shape in reality. This could also be a good time to consider moving house, or formalizing a romantic attachment. Enjoy this time, but don't allow complacency to creep in.

Devil


Mar 11, 2013
Devil

Like the Death and Hanged Man cards, to the uninitiated the Devil is far less ominous than he first appears. However, his arrival in a reading does warn of the very real danger of being lead astray by false lights, empty promises, or shallow pleasures. Enslavement of one sort or another is threatened by the Devil, who often comes in the most seductive guises, but you can choose how you respond to his advances.
Whether or not you are fully conscious of it, you or someone in close proximity are already bound to some self-destructive attachment that can only end in tears. It is time to listen to your own inner voice of wisdom and a way out will soon become clear. The misfortune threatened by this card is not a force of nature, but a consequence of choice.

Reversed Chariot


Mar 09, 2013
Reversed Chariot

The Chariot shows a young man hurtling along on a great adventure, drawn by two powerful yet quarrelsome dragons that require all his strength and determination to control. Like yin and yang, they represent qualities that are neither good nor bad in themselves, but which naturally tend to clash and get out of balance.
Discouragement, quarrels, and defeat are indicated by the card in the reversed position. The charioteer fails to control his fractious steeds and plunges to disaster. Great undertakings need loyal allies and a firm grasp of detail which, if overlooked, can bring the dream crashing down. This card can indicate a journey beset by delays, or becomes a flight from reality.

Reversed Ace of Wands

The reversed Ace warns of the danger of getting too attached to new beginnings that haven't been thought through properly, of being unrealistic and not fully committed to your undertakings. There is a slim chance of success here, but only if you work at it.

Reversed Page of Cups

The card represents an unwillingness to accept responsibility as fickleness, childishness, and self- absorption are masked as obedience. Such people can flatter others into taking them on, but will be unable to live up to the expectations they raise.

Delays, treachery, and misunderstandings bring life to a standstill. Possible openings fail to materialize, and colleagues let you down. The only remedy for this disappointment is patience and good humor. The mood of the times will eventually change.

Knight of Wands


Mar 04, 2013
Knight of Wands

The Knight of Wands is a versatile warrior, armed and fearlessly ready for action. The card signifies departures, change, and adventures into the unknown. It’s a warning to keep your eyes and ears open, because you are surrounded by challenge. But if, like the Knight (or with his help), you face it with courage, flexibility, and imagination, there’s every reason that you should triumph in the end.

A temporary relief from struggle. Use solitude to plan a way forward because the chances are that much will be demanded of you again soon. This can refer to either health or your personal life. Remember, with hindsight all the best achievements involve triumph over adversity.

Reversed Seven of Wands

This is a time of doubt, hesitation, and uncertainty. You are on the right track, but lack the courage of your convictions and are likely to miss many of the opportunities that present themselves. Trust your instincts more.
