Chariot


Aug 31, 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.

Four Of Wands


Aug 27, 2015
Four Of Wands

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.

Page of Pentacles


Aug 26, 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 Ace of Pentacles


Aug 25, 2015
Reversed Ace of Pentacles

Modest gain or empty prosperity, the curse of Midas, is forecast. If you neglect to share out any good fortune that comes your way it could end in loneliness. Alternatively, the card may warn of being at the mercy of a greedy and selfish person.

Reversed Seven of Cups

Reversed Seven of Cups

The warnings attached to the upright seven are here more than doubled. Daydreaming is in danger of becoming delusion and if you do not seriously pay attention to reality, there are very real difficulties ahead.

Reversed Death


Aug 20, 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 Knight of Swords


Aug 19, 2015
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 Hermit


Aug 18, 2015
Reversed 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.
Reversed, the Hermit represents over-caution, enforced solitude, timidity, and fear of facing the world and honestly interacting with others. His meditations are an indulgence and excuse for avoiding life, and he misses chances to help others with his knowledge through hesitation, clumsiness, and lack of empathy.

Reversed Five of Wands

Reversed Five of Wands

When this card is reversed, the situation becomes almost unbearable and it may be necessary to appeal to some higher authority to remove the threat, but be sure of your legal case before you do so.

Five of Wands


Aug 15, 2015
Five of Wands

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.

Strength


Aug 14, 2015
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 Seven of Swords

Reversed Seven of Swords

You face a setback to your plans and even face possible betrayal by a partner or a business colleague - however, don't allow yourself to become disheartened by this negative behavior. Seek advice from those who have been through what you are facing now.

Ace of Swords


Aug 12, 2015
Ace of Swords

The Ace of Swords signifies triumph through strength and determination, particularly in the intellectual or inventive spheres. It marks the beginning of a fresh era, a promotion perhaps, or some other kind of advancement. A danger of the intellectualism symbolized by Swords is that it can be applied equally to right and wrong causes, so you need to examine your true motives with care.

Eight of Wands


Aug 10, 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.

Two of Pentacles


Aug 07, 2015
Two of Pentacles

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. Times of change like this are full of opportunity but also risk, so be prepared for a rollercoaster of a journey!

Tower


Aug 06, 2015
Tower

The Tower of Stale, outmoded belief is toppled by the Dragon of repressed natural instincts. The falling figures represent the plunge into confusion that comes with the shattering of long-held convictions. They also reflect Adam and Eve, cast out of Eden into the mortal world, having for the first time to feed and clothe themselves, or children being cast out of the home.
Without warning the old order breaks down and chaos breaks loose. Upheaval, betrayal, and failure all threaten to shake your self-belief. This is a common card for people facing the challenges of mid-life, although love can create similar havoc at any age, as can politics, war, and business. Such revolutions always lead to clearer understanding in the long term, however.

Knight of Cups

Aug 04, 2015
Knight of Cups

The Knight of Cups is romantic, loyal, generous, friendly, thoughtful, and idealistic. He inspires new ventures in both romantic and practical fields without expecting much in return. This Knight is happiest when embarked upon some great spiritual quest like that of the Holy Grail. He signals the possibility of an idealistic new venture coming your way, possibly from an old friend.

Hierophant


Aug 03, 2015
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.
Providing comfort, security, the wisdom of the ages, and generosity in others' time of need are among the many virtues of the Hierophant that make him someone to turn to in troubled times. But inflexibility - a lack of openness to change - can often negate these virtues. Too great a reverence for the past can become hostility toward all change, and the Hierophant symbolizes an obstacle to growth. He can also indicate marriage or other lasting union.
