Magician


Mar 31, 2014
Magician

With one hand on the wand, the Magician gazes thoughtfully down at the symbols of the four Tarot suits, contemplating his next move. They are emblems of the four elements, whose interactions create the endless variety of life; and by the judicious balancing of one against the other, enchantment can be brought into the world. The Magician is related to Hermes the messenger, patron of tricksters and alchemists.
This card signals originality and inventiveness. This is a lucky time for new undertakings. Everything will come together, and when you speak you will be believed because of your evident sense. Inspiration, too, will come when you most need it, helping you tackle unforeseen challenges.This is a good time to travel and favors any travel plans you have.

Hanged Man


Mar 30, 2014
Hanged Man

As with the Death card, the Hanged Man is much less ominous than he first appears. Although suspended over an abyss, our man is serene and seems almost to be enjoying his novel view of the world, perhaps because he knows it will give fresh insights when he is back on his feet again. Like the Fool, he cares little for dignity or even danger, and trusts in a higher wisdom to show him the way.
You are at a life crossroads at which sacrifices and patience are needed if the right choices are to be made. Submit gracefully, and all will be well. Life needs to be viewed from a fresh angle, and what may seem a total distraction to your plans may just take you in a fresh, creative direction. You may feel you are wasting time hanging around, but it will prove to be well worth your while.

Strength


Mar 29, 2014
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.
This card signifies success through meeting problems head-on and overcoming them by strength of will. Perseverance, courage, and determination combined with intelligence and modesty make an irresistible combination not only for tackling adversity but for encouraging others to come to your assistance. The strength of this card inspires others because it's triumph benefits all.

Reversed Three of Pentacles

Reversed Three of Pentacles

A proposal is in danger of coming to nothing. Sloppiness and haste threaten to spoil what could have been a creative and rewarding venture. You need to concentrate and stop imagining that the world automatically owes you anything.

Reversed Emperor


Mar 27, 2014
Reversed Emperor

Where the Emperor differs most from the Empress, his consort, is in the directness of his approach to problems. He rules by decree and command, quick and confident in his wisdom and sense of justice. He is ambitious and will stop at nothing to achieve his aims. This card represents will and authority.
Reversed, the Emperor card can represent either difficulty with an outside authority or possibly indicate one's own abuse of power. The reversed Emperor is a confused, immature bully. Look hard in the mirror before deciding to whom the card refers, because it it much easier to project these qualities onto others than to own up to them.

Reversed Star


Mar 26, 2014
Reversed Star

Like that of the Magi over Bethlehem, the great Star is the portent of a new beginning. The change will take time to manifest, but this most optimistic card signals the return of hope after a period of trial and tribulation. The dragon pouring Water of Life into the lake and onto the land is Truth, whose blinding clarity lights the path from trouble to peace.
When reversed, the card signals failure, wrong choices, disappointment, and confusion. Although it stops short of promising imminent disaster, the Star reversed warns of the danger of trusting to false promises and unrealistic schemes that will lead nowhere. Optimism is usually a blessing, but when it is ungrounded in reality it can become a curse.

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.

Reversed Eight of Wands

Disharmony, quarrels, and rivalry all threaten to disrupt your plans. Rushed commitments come back to haunt you, and impatience could lead you into other choices that you will equally regret. Be cautious, and wait for the conditions to change.

Reversed Two of Cups

Reversed Two of Cups

Disappointment, quarrels, and misunderstandings threaten to end in the breakdown of partnerships in either love or work. Beware of rash decisions you will later regret. It's worth trying to work through the difficulties first.

Reversed Ace of Swords

Reversed Ace of Swords

Reversed, the Ace of Swords represents danger, and the possible collapse of your dreams through arrogance and insensitivity. But it must be remembered that often grim endings are needed before fresh beginnings. Plan for the long term.

Lack of confidence, vision, and persuasiveness combine to produce confusion and failure; or someone close is playing tricks and is not who they seem. Either way, this is a bad omen for new ventures and caution is urged. it pays to discuss plans with trusted friends.

Reversed Ten of Wands

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.

Reversed World


Mar 18, 2014
Reversed World

As the last card of the Major Arcana, the World signifies the achievement of ambitions, and success in the eyes of others. the Wyrm Ouroboros encircles the world to show the endless self-renewal of nature, flanked by the dragons of the four Minor Arcana suits; Air (Swords), Water (Cups), Fire (Wands), and Earth (Pentacles).
The World in reversed position warns of disappointment, a lack of imagination, and failure to carry projects right through to the end. Much more perseverance, determination, and imagination are now needed if you hope to realize any of your dreams. Stagnation is bound to set in if you don't keep supplying fresh energy to your undertakings.

Knight of Wands


Mar 17 2014
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.

Reversed Three of Cups

Disgrace and misfortune threaten as a result of over-indulgence and laziness. Selfishness threatens to sour a marriage or other close relationship. Although it is always hard to accept blame in these matters, it is time to take a long, hard look in the mirror.

Eight of Pentacles


Mar 15, 2014
Eight of Pentacles

Success and the calm mastery of your talents are at hand. You are appreciated by those you work with and are likely to receive your just rewards. Be prudent, though, as this is a time for consolidation and not wild excess. You are offered the chance of rewarding adventure, but you are expected to be responsible in your actions.

Reversed Four of Pentacles

Reversed Four of Pentacles

Obstacles on the material front are exacerbated, and possibly even created, by your eagerness for money. There is more to life than this - begin by taking pride in your work purely for its own sake, and you may just find that this helps toward attaining a decent reward for it.

Reversed Ten of Swords

Reversed Ten of Swords

A slight but temporary illusion of success is forecast when the card is in this position. However, misfortune will follow if you do not take advantage of this reprieve and build up your defenses against disasters that almost certainly lie in wait just around the corner.

Sun


Mar 12, 2014
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. 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.
Good fortune, material success, energy, and joy are all promised by this card as whatever you undertake is blessed. New beginnings are suggested by the children and the sunflowers craning for the sky. This is a good time for new partnerships in all spheres of life and for refreshing your spirits through simple enjoyment of the good things on offer.

Hermit


Mar 11, 2014
Hermit

The Hermit guards ancient esoteric truths nurtured and harvested away from the bustle of everyday life. He seeks his own path through dark, little frequented byways of the human soul. His patient introspection uncovers secrets of the soul that the turmoil of daily life tends to obscure, and whose importance often only manifests in times of trouble.
The Hermit in a reading can represent either an attitude required of the questioner in the current situation, or someone nearby with the detachment to see the way forward. Prudence, patience, and caution are all suggested by this card, and also a need for withdrawal and contemplation. Don’t rush into anything until you properly understand what is going on. Be more eager to listen than to speak.

Seven of Cups

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.

Devil


Mar 07, 2014
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.

Integrity is everything.

Reversed Page of Pentacles

Reversed Page of Pentacles

The dreaminess of the upright Page becomes a curse and the Page tries to compensate by becoming prickly and demanding over things that do not really matter, lacking any true sense of proportion. He becomes unreliable and selfish.

Ten of Wands

Exhaustion threatens as you try to juggle the conflicting demands of work and family. Try to step back and reorganize your life in a more practical and realistic way, rather than just struggling on hopelessly against the tide of demands. Something has to give, and it need not necessarily be you.
