Reversed Devil


Feb 27, 2015
Reversed 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.
The reversed card signifies the end of an ill-starred period of delusion, when it's time to crawl from the ruins and begin again. there is still some danger, but if you listen to the promptings of the angel on one shoulder and ignore the devil on the other, you can find renewal.

Reversed Knight of Swords

This card represents arrogance, recklessness and misguided aggression. Instead of the courage to do battle if necessary, the Knight has become addicted to the thrill of fighting for its own sake.

Reversed Death


Feb 25, 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.

Modest success is indicated. Your idea has worked but few recognize its full value, so you are left with having to content yourself with the knowledge that you have done a good job that might be appreciated one day. Family problems are likely when the Ten is reversed.

Emperor


Feb 23, 2015
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.
The Emperor represents earthly power achieved through force of will, including war if necessary, though usually the card stands for stability, wealth, justice and the dominance of reason over emotion. It can represent an authority figure at work or in the family, or the attitude necessary to carry plans through to fruition. Sometimes it's necessary to put aside reflection and sympathy, and simply act.

Magician

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.

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 Pentacles


Feb 16, 2015
Queen of Pentacles

The Queen of Pentacles is regal, generous, and diplomatic, ruling her suit in close partnership with her King and in much the same manner, although with perhaps a touch more warmth and understanding of human frailty.

Wheel of Fortune


Feb 13, 2015
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.
Good luck, change and a revolution in your fortunes. Forgotten friends and unexpected allies suddenly appear to help realize some of your dreams. Strange coincidences also work in your favor. Make the most of it, but beware of pride and conceit. Remember to share your windfall with all who help make it happen, and bear in mind that it will not last forever.

Reversed Justice


Feb 10, 2015
Reversed Justice

Life is often unfair, and luck counts for more than we care to admit in realizing our dreams. Opposed to this, however, is the natural human thirst for fairness represented by the eighth card of the Major Arcana which recalls Themis, the ancient Greek goddess of Justice, with her scales and her sword of discernment, in this case supported by the dragon of higher wisdom. She represents an ideal that we may strive toward.
Loss, particularly in legal matters, injustice, and a lack of recognition at work are all threatened by the Justice card reversed. Prepare to ride out a storm as false accusations, prejudice, and bullying may come your way, but try to see this as a test of character.

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.

Five of Pentacles

Traditionally, this is a financially unlucky card, indicating problems and possible unemployment.

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 Knight of Cups

Reversed Knight of Cups

Like all crushed romantics, the Knight reversed becomes cynical, bitter, deceitful, treacherous, and self-serving. The card symbolizes loss and the bitterness disappointment can bring, and its poisonous effect on relationships.
