October tarot reading

Standard

The October tarot reading is mostly encouraging. I think I’d feel more excited about it if I didn’t feel so absolutely miserable today. Upon waking I thought that I had recovered from yesterday’s severe migraine (the worst I had in a long time), but of course shortly after getting to work I started feeling like I’d rather die. At this stage returning home isn’t an option – not sure if I’ll make it, the way I’m feeling right now. There is the option of getting on the Gautrain, but don’t know how I’d get home from the station, or back to work tomorrow, if my car remains here. I’d really like to go to my GP and have a few things checked out also. Oh well. On to the reading.

The MagicianCard 1 (The Magician) : How you feel about yourself now  »

You feel a sense of purpose and the willpower to get things done. Self-empowerment is the key word here. Any new enterprises in love or career show great potential. You feel that you have the ability to think on your feet and, faced with opposition, the appearance of The Magician is an excellent omen of success. Time to believe in your self and go for it!

 

The Hanged Man

Card 2 (The Hanged Man) : What you most want at this moment  »

The cards suggest that what you most want at this time is to have it all, why should you have to give something or someone up? Perhaps you feel a victim and that events are not going as planned. Trust that this is a passage from one phase of your life to another. If you are not sure what or who you need to give up, trust that what will be will be, and will ultimately be to your benefit.

The Hierophant

Card 3 (The Hierophant) : Your fears  »

Are you really your best counsel? Probably not at this moment in time. You are worried that you will sell yourself short and agree to something that you don’t feel morally comfortable with. For example you may really desire marriage but the offer has been ‘let’s live together’. You may be looking at a job or business opportunity but you question how ethical it is. Seek out an advisor you can trust such as a teacher, priest, parent or anyone you have respect for. They will be happy to help.

The Devil

Card 4 (The Devil) : What is going for you  »

There’s a possibility of permanence here. If you’re considering a commitment in a relationship or marriage this is a good sign. However question your motives because here we have temptation and addiction, and a desire to be controlled or controlling. So use your intuition and if you recognise what you feel as sincere, great, if not you still have a chance to change direction. If considering giving up a bad habit, such as smoking or drinking for example, now is a good time to start.

The Empress

Card 5 (The Empress) : What is going against you  »

There are conflicts around you, frustrations and possibly a break up in a relationship. Be careful not to over-react and be too protective or dictatorial about your needs, and whatever you do, do not resort to emotional blackmail, it won’t do you any favours. You may be experiencing infertility problems or an unplanned pregnancy, if so just know that there are people around you who love and care for you and will provide support.

The Fool

Card 6 (The Fool) : Outcome  »

Open your mind and soul to new possibilities this is a time to realise your full potential, follow your instincts and act on your hunches. A time for spontaneity, fun and surprises. However, be mindful of being too impulsive – your decisions should be based on experience and knowledge of self.

February tarot reading

Standard

The last two days have been positive for me, especially at work. I hope it lasts; according to the cards it will.

Justice

Card 1 (Justice) : How you feel about yourself now  »

You are feeling that things will go your way, you believe in fairness and justice in all things. If you are considering partnership issues, personal or professional, dealings will go well. Perhaps you are about to sign a contract or legal document, this will be beneficial to you. If someone has done wrong to you it will be put right and you will feel justice has been done.

 

Strength

Card 2 (Strength) : What you most want at this moment  »

The cards suggest that what you most want at this time is to find the strength and will power to see you through and achieve what you want. It is important to come from a place of love and tolerance though, and not aggression. Put your fears to rest and develop a positive attitude and you’ll reap richer rewards.

 

The Hierophant

Card 3 (The Hierophant) : Your fears  »

Are you really your best counsel? Probably not at this moment in time. You are worried that you will sell yourself short and agree to something that you don’t feel morally comfortable with. For example you may really desire marriage but the offer has been ‘let’s live together’. You may be looking at a job or business opportunity but you question how ethical it is. Seek out an advisor you can trust such as a teacher, priest, parent or anyone you have respect for. They will be happy to help.

 

The Empress

Card 4 (The Empress) : What is going for you  »

The harvest is here; you are entering an abundant time of happiness and joy. Creative energy is high so if you are considering starting a family, a new job or artistic endeavour this is a favourable time. Relax and enjoy.

 

 

The World

Card 5 (The World) : What is going against you  »

As always, fear holds us back and so often leads to missed opportunities. Do not give up or change direction this late in the game just because you have experienced delays – stick with it, have faith and trust the universe, and you will reach the successful conclusion you are wanting.

 

 

The Moon

Card 6 (The Moon) : Outcome  »

Whilst you are confused and fearful and allowing your anxieties to hold you back, trust that all will turn out well in the end. Things may seem tough or confusing but stick with it, its right for you. The Moon is a good omen if you are in a clandestine affair and helps guide us to open our minds to new and unexpected possibilities.

January tarot reading

Standard

Happy 2011 to the few people who read this blog. Mine has been off to a miserable start. I’m hoping that means things can only get better. So let’s see what my first reading of the year says:

The High Priestess

Card 1 (The High Priestess) : How you feel about yourself now  »

You are very aware of the feminine power within, intuitive and conscious at a spiritual level, looking for guidance and answers, a secret to be revealed. You desire a wise guide to help address your questions, and your intuition is just that. If you are male the appearance of The High Priestess can represent a woman who you care for very much and who truly inspires you.

The Fool

Card 2 (The Fool) : What you most want at this moment  »

The cards suggest that what you most want at this time is just to be happy, and you are searching for the one thing that will bring happiness. You want a new start but feel unsure of what you want or where you want to go. Romantically you have mixed feelings regarding another – part of you wants to enter the relationship wholeheartedly, part of you wants to hold back. So if you are in a relationship that empowers you, stay, if not it is time to move on.

The Chariot

Card 3 (The Chariot) : Your fears  »

The word failure isn’t in your vocabulary. You are worried things are more of a struggle than you expected, with more delays and frustrations. Things aren’t going to plan at all, just chill out, calm that mind of yours and you’ll find the strength to battle on until you succeed. This is a period of movement and change and conflicts ending in victory.

The Devil

There’s a possibility of permanence here. If you’re considering a commitment in a relationship or marriage this is a good sign. However question your motives because here we have temptation and addiction, and a desire to be controlled or controlling.

If considering giving up a bad habit, such as smoking or drinking for example, now is a good time to start. WTF?!

The Empress

Justice

Card 6 (Justice) : Outcome  »

Justice will be done. Decisions will go in your favour, particularly regarding partnerships or legal matters. A time for some good luck and reward for your good deeds in the past.

Another Tarot Thursday

Standard
It has been an very emotional week, and it’s going into the second one. I’m tired and despondent and all sorts of negative things. But that is still nothing compared to what my colleague is feeling. I do believe she is toxic and it’s rubbing off on me. But, here we go. (Get your own reading here)
Wheel Of Fortune

Card 1 (Wheel Of Fortune) : How you feel about yourself now  »

Perhaps you feel due for a bit of good luck or indeed are experiencing some at the moment. The Wheel of Fortune is a card of destiny. What is happening now we could call fate, so if positive things are happening with your love life, career or finances this is no coincidence. If no such things are happening, expect a sudden change in fortune.

 

 

 

The Hanged Man

Card 2 (The Hanged Man) : What you most want at this moment  »

The cards suggest that what you most want at this time is to have it all, why should you have to give something or someone up? Perhaps you feel a victim and that events are not going as planned. Trust that this is a passage from one phase of your life to another. If you are not sure what or who you need to give up, trust that what will be will be, and will ultimately be to your benefit.

 

 

The Moon

Card 3 (The Moon) : Your fears  »

Lies and insecurity are likely to be prominent in your life at the moment, you are afraid of being deceived and feel that you are being misled. Trust your instincts and let them guide you away from those who may seem charming but are only out for their own gains. Your turbulent emotions are muddying the waters – step back and try to find clarity of mind, although this may seem difficult. The Moon does help to illuminate the way and don’t worry, it will turn out alright in the end.

 

 

The Empress

Card 4 (The Empress) : What is going for you  »

The harvest is here; you are entering an abundant time of happiness and joy. Creative energy is high so if you are considering starting a family, a new job or artistic endeavour this is a favourable time. Relax and enjoy.

 

 

 

 

The Hierophant

Card 5 (The Hierophant) : What is going against you  »

You are simply struggling to conform to others expectations of you and everybody has an opinion of what you should do. Perhaps you are having a crisis of faith and are unsettled at a very spiritual level. Ask yourself who you really are? What is important to you? What makes you happy? Seek out advice or wise counsel if you wish, but accepting who you really are and going after what you want instead of what others want for you is the most important.

 

The Hermit

Card 6 (The Hermit) : Outcome  »

This is a time for you to be alone or may herald a time of loneliness. Take this time for quiet introspection and rest. Don’t worry you will find the answers, but the Hermit signals a warning not to make hasty decisions. If you have been unwell this is a time for rest and recuperation.

The Chariot 

Card 1 (The Chariot) : How you feel about yourself now  »

You feel everything is a constant battle at the moment, but persevere and you will triumph in the end. Expect some good news that will help you to keep going until you achieve your goals. This is a time of movement and change and of conflicts ending in victory. You may well consider a journey that relates to work or go for that new car you’ve been looking at.

 

The Empress 

Card 2 (The Empress) : What you most want at this moment  »

The cards suggest that at this time you desire comfort, security and happiness and may well need some emotional support and reassurance. (If you are considering having a baby the desire will be very strong at this time, or perhaps you are already pregnant and you have some concerns. If male, perhaps you are considering fatherhood with someone but have concerns.) Things will turn out fine, just know that you are loved and that there are people around you who care.

The Devil 

Card 3 (The Devil) : Your fears  »

You are afraid that it’s out of control, you simply cannot resist this passionate attraction. Despite the fact its addictive and unlikely to be right, you just can’t stop yourself. Whatever it is, a passion for someone who’s not good for you, money deals that are too good to be true or any other kind of temptation, try to resist, as it is unlikely to have a positive outcome. If you’re feeling low in self-belief and self-worth and doubt your abilities, don’t, have more confidence – it’s not too late to change direction.

Justice
Card 4 (Justice) : What is going for you  »

There is a karmic power to the Justice card, reward for the good deeds you have done in the past. This is a period of good luck even if you don’t know why you are being so favoured. You will approach any issues concerning relationships or business affairs with calm, balanced logic and any claim will go in your favour.

 

 

 

Wheel Of Fortune 

Card 5 (Wheel Of Fortune) : What is going against you  »

A run of bad luck here, perhaps already evident or certainly signs that things are not going your way. The responsibility of important decisions weigh heavy with you where there are choices to make. Trust your intuition, and even if you have to make the painful decision to give up something in order to move on, then have the courage to do it. Trust that The Wheel of Fortune constantly turns and whilst it may be against you at the moment it will in time turn and bring you good fortune.

Strength 

Card 6 (Strength) : Outcome  »

Courage and self-belief is what you need to succeed. You may already feel overflowing with this, and if so there’s no doubt you will achieve what you want with your career, finances and love life. If you are feeling negative, look inward for that strength and courage, you know you are capable of having self-belief and you’ll reap great rewards.

Thursday reading

Standard
The cards seem determined that I have a love life and a baby. How about “NO!” I will now proceed to ignore all such nonsense – you should too! Free online readings here, pinch of salt you’ll need to procure yourself.
The Devil

Card 1 (The Devil) : How you feel about yourself now  »

You are feeling that the temptation of a certain relationship, pastime or other form of pleasure is too hard to resist – its almost addictive. Question your motives, these sorts of situations aren’t generally good news. You may also have rather low self esteem at this time and feel that there’s not much hope for the future – don’t doubt your abilities, try to be more positive. Think carefully, you can still change direction.
 

 

The Empress

Card 2 (The Empress) : What you most want at this moment  »

The cards suggest that at this time you desire comfort, security and happiness and may well need some emotional support and reassurance. (If you are considering having a baby the desire will be very strong at this time, or perhaps you are already pregnant and you have some concerns. If male, perhaps you are considering fatherhood with someone but have concerns.) Things will turn out fine, just know that you are loved and that there are people around you who care.

 

The World

Card 3 (The World) : Your fears  »

You are afraid of taking action and lack confidence and will power, but this is a time to be positive and proactive, otherwise you will experience loss of momentum, delays and stagnation. Completion and success are only a step away, don’t give up, lose heart or change direction when you are so close to the finish line. (WTF??)

 

 

 

The Lovers

Card 4 (The Lovers) : What is going for you  »

New love and commitment will enter your life, even if there’s no one on the horizon – be prepared for a surprise. Throw caution to the wind and expect joyous and happy times ahead. (Bite me!)

 

 

 

 

 

The Hanged Man

Card 5 (The Hanged Man) : What is going against you  »

You are allowing yourself to be victimised and emotionally blackmailed by others or you’re playing the martyr or victim to try and manipulate others. Don’t be too materialistic or try and hang onto someone or something for all the wrong reasons. Someone or something has to go, you must find the ability to let go and give this up – don’t worry it will turn out for the better for you. *speechless*

 

 

The Sun

Card 6 (The Sun) : Outcome  »

The Sun is shining on you – it’s your time for success, joy and happiness. You will feel confident and full of vitality. (*gag*) It’s a time to celebrate with friends and loved ones, perhaps enjoy a well-earned holiday, a time of pleasure and good news around children or the conception or birth of a longed-for baby. If you are not feeling this way take heart, you will enter this period soon. (Prove it!)

Judgement

Card 1 (Judgement) : How you feel about yourself now  »

You feel this is an end to an era or at least a certain phase of your life – you are taking stock and looking where you want to go from here. This ending is not one for regret but for rejoicing. Soon you will enjoy the rewards for your past efforts. As with any period of endings, many opportunities will present themselves and the choice that you make will have far reaching implications that could change your life dramatically. Any legal issues should be ruled in your favour. (I cannot imagine what could be ending, other than my probation period at work. The only legal issue in my life is my parents’ divorce, and the things I’ve been hearing the last couple of days sounds like we’re in for a rough time. One can live in hope though.)

The High Priestess

Card 2 (The High Priestess) : What you most want at this moment  »

The cards suggest that what you most want at this time is for a secret to be revealed, a secret held deep within yourself or another? Go within and listen to your heart and instincts. The appearance of The High Priestess tells you that the power of the divine feminine is with you, trust it. (Actually, what I most want at this moment, is a mountain of money, a place of my own, peace of mind for my mom. But apparently that’s too much to ask. I will listen to my heart, although it usually only leads me to trouble and tears.)

 

The Hermit

Card 3 (The Hermit) : Your fears  »

You are frightened of being on your own and loneliness, and you simply don’t know quite what to do. Take time to relax and in time you will have the answers. The Hermit signals a warning not to make hasty decisions, so try not to get too stressed, and if you have been unwell this is a time for rest and recuperation. (This is true and not. I want to be on my own – in a place of my own, where it would be much easier for me to dictate when to be surrounded by people. The people I want around me are the ones I can’t have, and in that sense I don’t like being “alone”. The only decision I’m pondering is whether or not to register for NaNoWriMo this year, and trying not to get “too stressed” is impossible for me.)

 

The Empress

Card 4 (The Empress) : What is going for you  »

The harvest is here; you are entering an abundant time of happiness and joy. Creative energy is high so if you are considering starting a family, a new job or artistic endeavour this is a favourable time. Relax and enjoy. (Relax? Seriously? Creative energy at a high is a good thing – especially if I decide to participate in NaNoWriMo afterall.)

 

 

 

The Devil

Card 5 (The Devil) : What is going against you  »

It’s like you’re in a drug-induced haze – it feels great and always leaves you wanting more. This is addiction pure and simple, whether it’s an obsessive sexual relationship, money deals that are too good to be true, materialism at any cost or recreational drugs. Take care – it won’t lead to a happy ending. (Who the what now? My only addiction, that I’m aware of, is worrying about stuff. This makes NO sense at all.)

 

 

The Lovers

Card 6 (The Lovers) : Outcome  »

Love is coming into your life even if you really can’t see where from at this time. If you are on your own a new lover will soon enter your life. If you are in an unhappy relationship you have a choice to make – go with your heart, take the risk, greater happiness is ahead of you. (Okay, what is it with the universe wanting me to find love so badly. When I told it on Twitter last week that I’d rather have a cheque than a man, it asked me if I would consider a package deal. I kid you not. In case you are wondering, I would. But love is very low down on my list of priorities now.)
