December tarot reading

Standard

Pinch and punch and all that stuff. This would be the last tarot reading for the year, but I may (or may not) do a reading on my birthday.

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.

 

Death

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

The cards suggest that what you most want at this time is absolute change, to end what you no longer want and start anew. You desire to transform your career or your love life, perhaps your whole lifestyle in general. However catastrophic such changes could be, embracing them will only make you grow in wisdom and experience.

 

The Tower

Card 3 (The Tower) : Your fears  »

You are afraid your world is falling apart, you’re experiencing sudden changes and disruption and you don’t quite know what to do. Perhaps subconsciously you’ve wanted a solution to an issue but didn’t quite expect things to have turned out as they have. Use this change as an opportunity for a new beginning. If you have been planning to move home you will be experiencing setbacks.

 

The High Priestess

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

All lines are open in your telephone exchange with your intuition, and there is no better guide than your intuition. Listen, listen carefully and the secret you want revealed will be shared with you.

 

 

The Emperor

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

You may be over ambitious at this time, success may remain just out of your reach for a while. Are you being assertive and positive enough? Or are you using aggressive, bullying tactics to no avail? Do not mis-use your authority or if you have requested help from a strong, successful man don’t let him bully you – he either helps or leaves you to get on with things yourself.

 

The Magician

Card 6 (The Magician) : Outcome  »

A time of positive action with great potential, you are full of self-belief and feeling very empowered. It’s time to show everyone exactly what you’re made of. You will have the ability to think on your feet and The Magician is an excellent omen for success.

November tarot reading

Standard

Aren’t you excited that it’s time for the tarot reading again? I know some of you wait anxiously for this post every month! Work is getting quiet, so bear with me, okay? :P

The Hierophant

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

You feel a need for advice or wise council or perhaps spiritual consolation. Someone, or perhaps immediate events, will provide moral and practical guidance. Perhaps you are considering being such a tutor, counsellor or spiritual advisor? You desire the tried and tested traditional values, so when considering your options, this approach will prove wiser than adopting an unconventional novel approach. For example, marriage is more likely to be your desire than a living together situation.

 

Wheel Of Fortune

Card 2 (Wheel Of Fortune) : What you most want at this moment  »

The cards suggest that what you most want at this time is a turning point in your life and positive change – well expect it now. Life will go up a gear or two and events will accelerate forward. Destiny is at play here – have you noticed a number of events that seem rather a coincidence? This is synchronicity, trust it and go with the flow.

 

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.

 

The World

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

Success, fulfillment and conclusion are near at hand – the successful outcome to a venture, satisfaction in a relationship and efforts rewarded. It is a culmination of events and indicates material wealth and greater spiritual awareness. You may choose to buy that dream house or a wonderfully fulfilling relationship is on offer, enjoy!

 

The Sun

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

You may experience a few delays on your quest for success and achievement but don’t worry, you’ll get there in a blaze of glory. Success may go to your head a little so a little modesty wouldn’t go amiss. Other than a few minor delays, look forward to a period of joy and happiness. If you are experiencing problems with conceiving a baby, The Sun often heralds good news around children and a much wanted pregnancy or birth of a longed-for baby.

 

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.

Tarot bonus – Court Card

Standard

I decided to find my Court Card -

In the Tarot, the Court Cards can represent people, moods or events, or aspects of your own personality. Each Court Card corresponds to an astrological sign, but also has a distinctive personality flavor.

Below are my two cards – one astrological and one relating to my personality. I can definitely identify traits of myself in both. I find this rather fascinating.

Queen of Wands

Card 1 (Queen of Wands) : Your Astrological Court Card  »

She has the ability to turn heads when she walks into a room and to command attention with simply a smile or a laugh. When she ‘turns it on’ people notice her!

Passionate, warm and enigmatic she is the life and soul of the party – the woman that other women want to be like. She may draw many male admirers.

She needs to feel good about herself, so what she does for a living and her intimate relationships both require passion.

Not afraid to share her thoughts and feelings, some may be intimidated by her extrovert personality; however this doesn’t really bother her.

She is the intrepid journalist, pioneering businesswoman and philanthropist of the world and pursues her career with energy and ambition.

Her passionate outgoing nature can create jealousy in others, and if she does not sometimes tread carefully and understand that not everyone is as confident as her, she may experience hostile reactions.

Prone to throwing tantrums or feeling sorry for herself when not on top of her game, she can easily alienate people.

To develop balance in her life, the queen of wands must learn when is the right time for her passion and drive, versus when patience and tact are called for.

 

Queen of Swords

Card 2 (Queen of Swords) : Your Personality Court Card  »

A woman with an agile mind, intelligent and articulate she is able to think at light-speed and can sweet-talk herself out of the trickiest situations!

With such a quick wit and quick thinking normally comes quick talking! She is the great orator, negotiator, sales woman, TV presenter, actor and teacher of this world.

She loves communication whether it’s over coffee with a friend, on the phone, texting on her mobile or email, and she never runs out of things to talk about!

Her strength is her ability to see solutions that others don’t due to her analytical mind and ability to see things conceptually.

Her free spirit, sense of fun and ability to thrive on change makes her great fun to be around. People certainly never find her boring.

Her negative traits/weakness can be that she talks too much and does not listen enough. This can sometimes make her appear self centered and insensitive to others.

Having a low boredom threshold she can also appear fickle and superficial.

This can lead to commitment issues both at work and in romance, so she needs to work on being more pragmatic and disciplined to find success in love and life.

September tarot reading

Standard
Lotus tarot has this reading for the month ahead:
The ChariotCard 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.

 

 

Judgement

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

The cards suggest that what you most want at this time is a new start, to close this chapter in your life and have a brand new beginning. This is not a time for regret but for rejoicing. Rewards for past efforts will follow and you are sure to have many opportunities presented to you. Life will pick up a pace and the choices you make will have far reaching implications that could change your life dramatically. Any legal issues should be ruled in your favour.

The Star

Card 3 (The Star) : Your fears  »

You are fearful of the future and rather lacking in self-belief – you are afraid your hopes will be dashed. Well don’t be, this is your wish card – a time of joy and fulfilment. Good health, possibly after a time of illness, and good fortune that will give you a new zest of life. If considering a new love affair, new job or career, or travel, then go for it. You may also receive a gift or gifts!

The High Priestess

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

All lines are open in your telephone exchange with your intuition, and there is no better guide than your intuition. Listen, listen carefully and the secret you want revealed will be shared with you.

The Tower

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

However hard you try to control events they just won’t go your way. Unexpected challenges, upheaval and disappointment will bring expectations to an end. Subconsciously you may have wanted a solution, you just didn’t expect it to happen this way. Use this period of change as an opportunity for a new beginning. If you have been planning to move home you will be experiencing setbacks.

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. 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.

August tarot reading

Standard

Pinch and punch… and the Lotus Tarot reading for the month. In short, I’m in for a bit of luck, need to listen to my instincts for a secret to be revealed, need more confidence to give up something I feel passionate about (not that I know what that is, since I’m feeling a bit apathetic), there’s a new love on the horizon (don’t know how I feel about that), get over my negativity (riiiight), but everything will turn out fine.

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 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.

 

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 – its not too late to change direction.

 

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.

 

 

Strength

Card 5 (Strength) : What is going against you  »

Your negativity and lack of self control are your real enemies. If you are finding certain addictions in your life are taking a hold, be it smoking or drinking for example, look inward for you hearts true strength and self-belief. Change your attitude and be positive and you will reap great rewards.

 

 

Temperance

Card 6 (Temperance) : Outcome  »

A period of peace and harmony, life will flow and you will find a way of handling any difficult circumstances with calm confidence. This is also a time for patience, so if you are not sure quite what decision to make about any key issue, take your time you’ll know what to do when the time is right.

It’s terrible, I know. I haven’t updated my blog in so long I even forgot the name! So let’s start with the Lotus Tarot for the month.

The Fool

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

You feel discontent or uneasy and feel a need for a change in your life, a new direction, perhaps even an adventure.

Justice

The Devil

Card 6 (The Devil) : Outcome  »

If your previous cards have been positive and your main consideration has been about a relationship then there’s a possibility of commitment, even a proposal of marriage.

If you are feeling low in self-belief and self worth and doubt your abilities, don’t, have more confidence – its not too late to change direction.

The Magician

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

If considering any new enterprise or relationship you will find the self-belief, confidence and ingenuity to make it a success. Perhaps a promotion or pay increase at work, or a strong feeling that if you were to choose to work for yourself, you truly believe you can make it work. Go for it!

 

The Fool

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

Beware of impetuous and impulsive decisions, they could cost you dear. Draw on your knowledge and experience, perhaps there are naive and immature beliefs behind your current desires.

Tarot reading for May

Strength

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

You feel that despite the challenges you have been faced with in the past, present or future, you will find the strength and courage to succeed.

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.

Tarot reading for April

Standard

So far 2011 has sucked great big… well, you get the idea. It has not been a good year for me. Then again, it’s been almost a decade since I did have a good year. But there are changes afoot, and maybe things will improve from tomorrow (today being April Fool’s Day and all). Let’s see what the cards say.

The Tower 

The Tower : How you feel about yourself now  »

You feel that the disruption and sweeping change you are going through, or fear you are about to go through, will be catastrophic. You need to recognise that such upheaval can force new directions that you never dreamed possible. Subconsciously you may have wanted change, but as is often the case, the solution isn’t always as we expect. There could be problems relating to your property, or if considering a new property or move, progress will be thwarted.

The Emperor 

The Emperor : What you most want at this moment  »

The cards suggest that what you most want at this time is success and achievement, and the support and influence of perhaps your father, husband/partner or a man of significance in your life who you believe could help.

Justice 

Justice : Your fears  »

There could be agreements or legal affairs that concern you and you certainly don’t want to lose – you feel quite strongly that you are in the right. Stay calm and level headed and seek sound counsel if you need to.

Death 

Death : What is going for you  »

A time of absolute endings and brand new beginnings, your life is going through a period of great transformation. Whilst it may be difficult or even painful you will pull through. You will be free for a brand new phase in your life.

The Hanged Man 

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.

The Hermit 

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.

 

This is the most meaningful reading I’ve had, considering all the changes, my doubts about that, about my ability to do my job well, and also with me feeling a little under the weather – physically and emotionally.

Standard
Monthly tarot reading from Lotus tarot
The Star 

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

You feel there is hope, or if you don’t, have faith – a tranquil period is imminent. If you have been ill, suffered bereavement or disappointment in love, take heart, good fortune is on its way. New horizons are indicated and you will feel a new zest for life. This is your wish card – if considering a new love affair, new job or career, or travel, then go for it. You may also receive a gift or gifts!

The Lovers 

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

The cards suggest that what you most want at this time is to know what choice to make – carry on as you are or take a risk? The risk offers excitement and change and staying as you are …. Well you know what that has to offer. Dare to love, dare to live?

The Magician 

Card 3 (The Magician) : Your fears  »

If there’s a new man in your life you are probably asking yourself if he can be trusted? Or perhaps this is a man of influence in your life, a boss or advisor – take care in whom you place your trust. You are feeling disappointed – your romantic desires are unfulfilled at this time and you are wondering if they ever will be. Don’t worry, this won’t last.

The Emperor 

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

You are self-assured and more than capable of influencing people or events to achieve what you want. What’s more, support and guidance from your father, husband/partner or a man of significance in your life is there for the asking. Go for it!

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.

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.
