Reversed Chariot


Oct 31, 2016
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.

Sun

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.

Reversed Knight of Swords

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 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.

Knight of Pentacles


Oct 24, 2016
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 Swords

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.

Strength


Oct 19, 2016
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.

Devil


Oct 18, 2016
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.

Page of Pentacles

Oct 17, 2016
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.

Four of Pentacles

Four of Pentacles

Due reward comes after a long struggle, but you need to shrug off any lingering bitterness or sense of grievance if you are to enjoy it. There is some danger of you becoming a miser. Enjoy your good fortune, but also share it with others who probably did far more for you during the difficult times than you realized.

Eight of Wands

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 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 Pentacles


Oct 07, 2016
Reversed Ten of Pentacles

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.

Star

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.

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.
