Seven of Swords


Jan 31, 2015
Seven of Swords

Hope appears after a long struggle, but keep your guard up. You face opposition to your plans and it would be wise to learn its source, but you can achieve your aims if you persevere and be certain of your facts. Avoid direct confrontation, however; instead, let your ideas speak for themselves.

Knight of Pentacles


Jan 30, 2015
Knight of Pentacles

The Knight of Pentacles is useful, reliable, patient, persistent, and loyal. He is cautious by nature, preferring evolution to revolution, but has courage enough when it is called for. He is not a great one for spiritual quests, preferring prizes you can hold in the hand over those of the heart and soul. A happy measure of wealth may come your way, but beware of reckless spending.

Eight of Wands


Jan 29, 2015
Eight of Wands

The Eight indicates sudden progress that is possibly too fast for comfort, so try to slow things down a little and avoid over-hasty decisions that you might later regret. This is an exciting and well-starred time with travel, new business partnerships, and long-term romance all likely - just bear in mind that life is not always this easy, and plan for those rainy days.

Reversed Moon


Jan 28, 2015
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.

Reversed Death


Jan 27, 2015
Reversed Death

Few people relish the appearance of Death, but it is rarely a warning of physical death. This unlucky thirteenth card can represent calamity and endings, but mostly it signals fresh beginnings, for which something has to give way. The card signals the passage from one stage of life to another, which may involve sacrifice and pain, but there is no other way to renewal.
The reversed Death card is bad news, but rarely is its message catastrophic. It warns of of lethargy, inertia, and resistance to to change, leading to exhaustion and standstill. Clinging too much to the past can lead to an inability to adapt to changing conditions. Beware of becoming a caricature of your old self.

Reversed Wheel of Fortune


Jan 26, 2015
Reversed Wheel of Fortune

The Wheel of Fortune represents the ever-turning balance of impersonal forces that shape our lives independently of all conscious aims and effort. There are times in life when everything goes right (or wrong) purely through seemingly chance events beyond our control. At such moments we are at the mercy of fortune, ruled by the cockatrice, or basilisk at the top whose sword ensures no one basks in glory or defeat too long.
Bad luck, obstruction, betrayal, and indifference all conspire to bring you to a standstill. This is a bad time for new undertakings and also for gambling. Concentrate on small, practical achievements that will bear fruit. Practice cheerfulness in the face of adversity. It will pass.

Reversed Ace of Cups


Jan 23, 2015
Reversed Ace of Cups

Emotional upheaval, sterility, relationship break-up, the collapse of hopes, betrayal, and insecurity, especially in personal relationships. Summon your inner strengths.

Devil


Jan 22, 2015
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 Two of Swords


Jan 21, 2015
Reversed Two of Swords

An old enemy or rival offers a truce, but they are not being completely honest. Falsehood and duplicity are suggested by this card, and someone will let you down. Tread carefully; have several escape routes planned.

Star


Jan 20, 2015
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.
Like the return of spring after winter, the Star signals rebirth in any or all aspects of life, and the relaxing of restraints. After an illness, The Star card indicates the return of health. After a period of frustration in relationships or work, it promises the return of joy and blossoming of new partnerships. This is a good time to begin any new venture, and also to travel.

Reversed Page of Cups


Jan 19, 2015
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.

Two of Cups


Jan 17, 2015
Two of Cups

Friendship and romance are in the air. New and profitable partnerships at work are also likely and could change the long-term direction of your life. The beginning of any relationship lays its foundations and shapes its development, so now is a time for putting aside all selfish and petty urges. Be your best self, and it will bring out the best in others.

Reversed Strength


Jan 16, 2015
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.

Five of Cups


Jan 15, 2015
Five of Cups

Unhappiness and dissatisfaction cast a shadow over your relationships. Dwelling too much upon the past will only make the situation worse. What you need is a renewal of vision and it will come if you are patient, but in the meantime, resist laying blame for this situation on those around you. The problem lies within you.

Reversed Hangman


Jan 14, 2015
Reversed Hangman

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.
Beware of pointless time-wasting, selfishness, and half-hearted sacrifice that achieves nothing. You need to find new ways of dealing with events. The card may also warn of accidents, danger, and loss. Remember that whatever fails to break you only makes you stronger.

The strength of this card inspires others because it's triumph benefits all.

Seven of Pentacles


Jan 12, 2015
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.

Reversed Two of Pentacles


Jan 10, 2015
Reversed Two of Pentacles

Although there is a sense of unreality surrounding some current relationships, it is worth persevering – however, do watch out for ulterior motives in your partners. Get all agreements down in writing so there can be no arguments later.

Ten of Pentacles


Jan 09, 2015
Ten of Pentacles

This card signifies success, completion, and an invitation to rest on your laurels - although not for too long. You have worked hard to gain your present position and you are entitled to enjoy the benefits, and not least the space, to enjoy family life. However, nothing lasts forever, so you should also start making fresh plans for the future.

Page of Pentacles


Jan 08, 2015
Page of Pentacles

Intuitive, sensitive, creative, and hard-working, the Page is a successful student with psychic tendencies of which he is not always conscious. The card can signify good news such as success in a test or examination, or the attitude needed to make it happen. He can be a bit of a dreamer, though, so engrossed in whatever project he is focused upon that everyday life may fall apart around him.

Reversed Chariot


Jan 07, 2014
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.

Eight of Swords


Jan 06, 2015
Eight of Swords

Criticism, blame, or possible illness frustrate your plans and require patience to overcome. Judgement is tried and tested at times like this, but it is important to remember that there is no better way to test the value of your beliefs, especially if you have the humility to adapt them to reality.

Reversed Queen of Wands


Jan 03, 2014
Reversed Queen of Wands

The Queen becomes petty, cruel, and domineering. Her emotions become fickle, leading to possible infidelity. Instead of listening to others, she tries to force her own wishes on them through bullying and manipulation; a dangerous enemy.

Chariot


Jan 02, 2015
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.
Triumph through the careful balancing of opposites and courage in the face of danger are shown by this card. Turmoil, upheaval, and excitement on a journey that can be metaphorical or real, but either way leave you feeling that you have arrived in a different place. Hard work at this stage is recognized and rewarded for a change, but be careful not to relax too soon.

King of Swords


Jan 01, 2015
King of Swords

In astrology the character of Saturn in his benign aspect closely resembles that of the King of Swords. He represents power, authority, and the law, splitting complex arguments with the edge of his sword. His judgments can at times seem lacking in tolerance of human frailty, but are never unfair. This card usually represents an authority figure that the querent can look to for justice.
