Reversed Eight of Swords

A calamity or an accident threatens to derail your plans. All you can do in this situation is check any insurance documents you have, and prepare to be tested to the limit, bearing in mind that whatever doesn’t break you only makes you stronger. Above all, don’t panic!

Reversed Empress


Jun 29, 2016
Reversed Empress

As the High Priestess stands at the gate of the Otherworld, the Empress guards this one. She represents the middle aspect of the the triple goddess who as Venus seduces man with her delicate charms, as Gaia or Demeter tends the garden of this world in which children grow to maturity, and as Isis ushers them into the next. The Empress is the ideal, selfless mother.
In her negative aspect the Empress can be vacillating, domineering, over-possessive, devious, vindictive, and jealous. This is the card of partnerships that have turned sour, either in family or work, and little good will come of it until the relationship is either brought back into balance, or ended.

Justice


Jun 28, 2016
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.
Justice reveals a judgement in your favor as you receive your just rewards. This can be uncomfortable for those who have strayed beyond morality, but usually this card signals good fortune for you and a happy outcome to current negotiations. The card signals a good time for drawing up contracts, settling outstanding debts and obligations, and laying the foundations for the future.

Reversed Four of Swords

Economy and good management are needed just now and will lead to certain success in the future, beyond the difficulties you immediately face. Defeat and loneliness loom if you do not make an effort to reach out to friends. This requires humility, but it is not a bad thing. At times like this you will find out who your true friends are, and the others hardly matter.

Five of Pentacles

Traditionally, this is a financially unlucky card, indicating problems and possible unemployment. Often these are caused simply by the fear of them happening, so you might be creating your own bad luck. By way of compensation, your love life should blossom, so try to be less materialistic. Occasionally, though, the card can signal a windfall.

Chariot


Jun 22, 2016
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.

Reversed Five of Pentacles

Financial strain, or a slight gain, comes with unwelcome strings attached. There is a real danger of money worries causing a major relationship to degenerate, but the real problem is your own attitude, not the lack of money itself.

Eight of Wands


June 13, 2016
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.

Lack of co-operation from partners is likely to take the edge off life's pleasures just now, but be patient and persevering. It is not a serious problem, just one that requires tact, diplomacy, and a sense of your own worth.

Two of Swords


June 09, 2015
Two of Swords

Friendship, including possible reconciliation with an old enemy, shows the way forward. Often the most fruitful partnerships are those based on underlying conflict because that way all the angles are covered, whereas like-minded people can simply reinforce each other's prejudices and only later discover their limitations in the wider world.

Reversed Hermit


June 08, 2016
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 Chariot

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.

Page of Cups

The Page of Cups is the ideal student – patient, receptive, docile, and eager to learn. Often the card represents the need for such an attitude if you are to progress. There are times for assertion and times for humility, and this is one of them. If it represents another person, it means someone nearby is willing to learn from you, although they may be too shy to ask.

Reversed King of Cups

Reversed King of Cups

His creativity turns to idle dreaming, dishonesty, fickleness, and an inability to see projects through to the end. Disappointment leads him to escapism and addiction, and his bitterness makes him a treacherous friend and bad enemy.

Five of Wands


June 02, 2016
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.

Reversed World


June 01, 2016
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.
