Reversed Moon

Jun 23, 2017
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.

Ace of Swords

Jun 22, 2017
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.

Knight of Swords

Jun 21, 2017
Knight of Swords

The Knight of Swords is bold and enthusiastic, but also imaginative and clever like his Queen. He is a great champion of good causes and inspires others by his idealism and dedication to any cause he adopts. He is decisive and, while others dither over a course of action, he will just plunge headlong into it and generally win the day. He is a symbol of creative upheaval, usually leading to success.

Five of Swords

Jun 20, 2017
Five of Swords

Destruction, waste, and loss threaten to undermine your spirits, but do bear in mind that they are only temporary. You may justly be feeling bad, but beware of getting caught up in a negative spiral. The conditions will pass, and you can still achieve your goals if you learn the lessons of the current setback and apply them next time around.

King of Pentacles

Jun 19, 2017
King of Pentacles

The King of Pentacles is wealthy, confident, commanding, inspiring, intelligent, mathematical, straightforward, and determined. He is conservative, hard working, and leads by example. He is equivalent to Jupiter in astrology, the jovial ruler of the other planets and bounteous dispenser of wealth, which he naturally attracts. He is a loyal friend, a wise counselor, and a reliable, if cautious, partner.

Reversed Ace of Swords

Jun 16, 2017
Reversed Ace of Swords

Reversed, the Ace of Swords represents danger, and the possible collapse of your dreams through arrogance and insensitivity. But it must be remembered that often grim endings are needed before fresh beginnings. Plan for the long term.

Thursday, June 15, 2017

Empress

Jun 15, 2017
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.
A mother, or mother-like figure, either a symbol of one's own mother or a reminder of the ideal. However, this card can simply signal a time of fertility and abundance. As a ruler the Empress is wise, generous, and scrupulously fair, giving a lead by subtle hint and example rather than direct order. This card suggests action and worldly success for any imminent enterprise, whether it be marriage, work or art.

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Reversed Page of Swords

Jun 14, 2017
Reversed Page of Swords

The card represents a nasty surprise because of someone's deviousness, dishonesty, and false friendship. Their discretion has become a love of secrecy in itself and for the power it gives over others.

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Queen of Pentacles

Jun 13, 2017
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. She has a good grasp of finances as well as being a generous and welcoming hostess. The card represents either someone you should turn to, or qualities you need to cultivate.

Monday, June 12, 2017

Reversed Fool

Jun 12, 2017
Reversed Fool

The Fool represents the wild optimism of youth, rushing into adventures with no thought for the consequences. Although this impulsiveness often leads to disaster, especially in mature people who should know better, it is what makes the world turn. The dragonet snapping at the Fool's foot symbolizes his cautious conscience, warning him not to get too carried away and fall off the edge.
This is an unlucky warning of imminent danger unless the person it refers to pulls themselves together and starts acting responsibly. All the Fool's worst qualities of fecklessness and lack of commitment are about to demand a heavy price. His confidence will prove hollow.

Thursday, June 8, 2017

Devil

Jun 08, 2017
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 Wheel of Fortune

Jun 07, 2017
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.

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Four of Pentacles

Jun 06, 2017
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.

Monday, June 5, 2017

Reversed Seven of Cups

Jun 05, 2017
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.

Wheel of Fortune

Jun 02, 2017
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.

Thursday, June 1, 2017

Page of Pentacles

Jun 01, 2017
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.

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Reversed Page of Cups

May 31, 2017
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.

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

Reversed Page of Pentacles

May 30, 2017
Reversed Page of Pentacles

The dreaminess of the upright Page becomes a curse and the Page tries to compensate by becoming prickly and demanding over things that do not really matter, lacking any true sense of proportion. He becomes unreliable and selfish.

Monday, May 29, 2017

Knight of Wands

May 29, 2017
Knight of Wands

The Knight of Wands is a versatile warrior, armed and fearlessly ready for action. The card signifies departures, change, and adventures into the unknown. It’s a warning to keep your eyes and ears open, because you are surrounded by challenge. But if, like the Knight (or with his help), you face it with courage, flexibility, and imagination, there’s every reason that you should triumph in the end.

Friday, May 26, 2017

Reversed Hermit

May 26, 2017
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.

Thursday, May 25, 2017

Ten of Cups

May 25, 2017
Ten of Cups

This card represents a happy home life, contentment at work, and good standing in the community, all of which are a result of diligent application and energy. You have established a stable and honored place for yourself and your loved ones in the world. Traditionally, this is the luckiest card in the Tarot for newlyweds.

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 Eight of Cups

May 23, 2017
Reversed Eight of Cups

Gaiety, joy, and fellowship follow upon the realization of a dream achieved through perseverance and hard work. Difficult choices have been made and you have probably often wondered if you have been simply chasing a fantasy, but here you have the result.

Monday, May 22, 2017

Reversed World

May 22, 2017
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.

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Priestess

May 18, 2017
Priestess

The High Priestess is often equated to the Moon, or the veiled Isis, sister and wife of Osiris in ancient Egyptian myth. The book from which she is reading contains all the mysteries of both life and death, which she guards and shares with her initiates. Although a good teacher, she is also a slightly remote, self-contained figure who usually requires the help of more practical spirits to make her insights function in reality.
Inspiration, learning, mystery, understanding of the inner workings of life enlightenment, and serenity are all represented by this card, with a hint that serenity can sometimes lead to emotional detachment from daily events. Often this card implies that hidden spiritual factors are currently affecting your life, so look carefully within, or consult a respected advisor.

Reversed Ace of Cups

Two of Wands

May 10, 2017
Two of Wands

A possible partnership offers a way of furthering your ambitions. Unnecessary self-doubt is blocking your way, however, so you need to be decisive and trust in your instincts. Or, if this is not possible, ally yourself to someone who has that confidence. The prospects are good – just have faith.

Tuesday, May 9, 2017

Reversed Lovers

May 09, 2017
Reversed Lovers

The young couple joining hands within the dragon's embrace are entering the adventure of a shared life, buoyed by the optimism of youth and within the embrace of high wisdom. There may be troubles ahead, but for now the pair take simple joy in each other's company, confident that together they will be a match for anything that comes. The card suggests a happy union in either the private or work spheres.
Reversed, the card warns of heartache, disappointment, failure, and possible betrayal by a friend or lover. To cope you need to be cautious, consistent, and persevering, and plan wisely. Say what you mean and mean what you say, as this is no time for lazy assumptions or half-hearted commitments.

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.

Monday, May 1, 2017

Hanged Man

May 01, 2017
Hanged Man

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.
You are at a life crossroads at which sacrifices and patience are needed if the right choices are to be made. Submit gracefully, and all will be well. Life needs to be viewed from a fresh angle, and what may seem a total distraction to your plans may just take you in a fresh, creative direction. You may feel you are wasting time hanging around, but it will prove to be well worth your while.

Thursday, April 27, 2017

Tower

Apr 27, 2017
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.

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

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.
