Queen of Pentacles

Aug 17, 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.

Five of Cups

Unhappiness and dissatisfaction cast a shadow over your relationships. Dwelling too much upon the past will only make the situation worse. What you need is a renewal of vision and it will come if you are patient, but in the meantime, resist laying blame for this situation on those around you. The problem lies within you.

Reversed Ace of Swords

Aug 15, 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.

Justice

Aug 14, 2017
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.

Knight of Cups

Aug 11, 2017
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.

King of Cups

Aug 10, 2017
King of Cups

The King is generous, honest, level-headed, kind, and cultured. He takes his responsibilities seriously and champions peace and the arts of civilization. He can be a formidable opponent in war, but only as a last resort. He is a great patron of the arts and sciences, and when in a favorable position in a spread his presence should be taken as encouragement to make plans on a grand scale.

Page of Swords

Aug 09, 2017
Page of Swords

The Page of Swords represents someone who is adept at uncovering secrets and unraveling mysteries - a problem-solver, sleuth, and possibly even a spy. He can be trusted with secrets when given good reason. He is a good diplomat with a keen eye for creative compromise, able to act on his own initiative, and only give away what is necessary to achieve a goal. His taste for secrecy can be taken too far, however.

Nine of Swords

Aug 08, 2017
Nine of Swords

Beware tempting but false invitations. Deception and even possible violence are warned by this card, but bear in mind that adversity is the best test of character, just as a sword requires fire and hammering to get a sharp edge. In the long run, know that all adversity can be turned to the good.

Monday, August 7, 2017

Hierophant

Aug 07, 2017
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.

Reversed Ten of Wands

Aug 03, 2017
Reversed Ten of Wands

Difficulties and intrigues block your way when the card is reversed. You are likely to feel let down by someone you have trusted, although possibly this is your own fault for having abused their trust in the past. It is time to rethink the direction of your life.

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

Knight of Wands

Aug 02, 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.

Tuesday, August 1, 2017

Ace of Wands

Aug 01, 2017
Ace of Wands

The Ace of Wands represents the beginning of some great new practical venture or career. The time is right for putting your boldest ideas into action, pushing the back the boundaries of possibility, and sharing your enthusiasm with the world. Now, when everything is flowing your way, is the time to exercise your talents, stake out your territory, and show the world what you can do.

Reversed Four of Pentacles

Jul 27, 2017
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.

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

Wheel of Fortune

Jul 26, 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.

Seven of Cups

Seven of Cups

Daydreaming threatens to distract you from pressing decisions that need to be made soon if you want to realize your hopes. Imagination is a wonderful faculty, but there is always a danger of it degenerating into mere wishful thinking. Divide your plans into distinct practical stages so that you can tell when they start to stray too far from reality.

Monday, July 24, 2017

Knight of Pentacles

Jul 24, 2017
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.

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

Reversed Empress

Jul 19, 2017
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.

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Strength

Jul 18, 2017
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.

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.

Reversed Death

Jul 13, 2017
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.

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.
This card represents a creative revolution or transformation of life, probably involving the loss of friendly, family, or business connections, but only as the prelude to a fresh and rewarding phase of life. In physical health it can warn of a potential crisis if you pay no attention to warning signals, but the card is usually more concerned with spiritual health and the need for periodic renewal to avoid stagnation.

Nostalgia is likely to affect you as you become aware of just how many current events have their roots way back in your distant past. This is healthy up to a point because you will soon face a major life choice, and drawing upon the lessons of the past can help ensure that you make the right decision in the near future. Also, seek the advice of old friends.

An old enemy or rival offers a truce, but they are not being completely honest. Falsehood and duplicity are suggested by this card, and someone will let you down. Tread carefully; have several escape routes planned.

Success is likely, even though all the odds appear to be stacked against you. Victory will be all the sweeter for the effort it takes you, and sweeter still if you just quietly get on with doing whatever is necessary without complaint. Others may be trying to undermine you, but just talk things through with them openly and the threat will go away.

Jul 03, 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.

A very promising outlook for new ventures is forecast, which calls for the exercise of all your best talents. Creativity flourishes in this situation, so bring out the artist or craftsman in you and do your best. You have a chance to prove your mastery to the world and reap the rewards. Integrity is everything.

Thursday, June 29, 2017

Emperor

Jun 29, 2017
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.

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.

Reversed Six of Swords

Some kind of declaration will signal the beginning of a whole new way of life. Your situation may feel like a stalemate, but know that it is about to change - just be ready to seize the moment. Remember that your determined effort always bears fruit.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Wednesday, June 7, 2017

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.
