  • Be Cautious

    Seven of Batons : Queen of Cups : Knave of Swords

    I suspect that the Queen of Cups in this spread represents my ex who was on the phone to me yesterday for quite some time. The image on the Seven of Batons with a man and woman discussing what might be a legal document also fits well with what we talked about. With the Knave of Swords at the end of the row of cards there is a warning here, I think, to exercise caution… I should not rush (or be pushed) into anything.

  • Reality Check

    Seven of Dragonflies (trad. Cups) : The Hanged Man : Seven of Moths (trad. Wands)

    In this spread the Seven of Moths is elementally challenged. Assigned to FIRE it comes under attack from the pairing of two cards assigned to WATER. What this means is that its energy is subdued. This would seem to indicate a feeling of being under pressure with no recourse to an escape route. The problem is that I am probably not thinking straight (Seven of Dragonflies) There are either too many options to consider, or I am simply not grounded enough to see what is real and what isn't. The Hanged Man reflects disengagement - which can sometimes be of use, but I guess that today it is more of a hindrance than a help. I need to get myself sorted (and re-aligned) and touch base with reality…

  • Minor Conflict

    Ten of Beetles (trad. Pentacles) : Six of Beetles : Five of Moths (trad. Wands)

    The Six of Beetles (Pentacles) is a card that I associate with the notion of give and take. It is, for me, a card of sharing. With the Ten of Beetles alongside the focus would seem very much to be on resources today and as this particular card can represent family heritage on occasion, I am mindful that I have agreed to take my son out for the afternoon to do some shopping for electronics (and for a meal later). There is challenge, however, in the shape of the Five of Moths (Wands) - which can stand for argument and disagreement. Things might not go as smoothly as I want this afternoon...Minor conflict is in the air.

  • Which Way? [Yesterday's Cards]

    Queen of Bees (trad. Swords) : Three of Moths (trad. Wands) : Queen of Beetles (trad. Pentacles)

    I was away from home and from the INTERNET yesterday and didn't get back until after midnight, so although I pulled these cards first thing in the morning I was unable to post to the blog.

    There is a distinct opposition here between the Queen of Bees and the Queen of Beetles. There is a choice of approach between the logical, thoughtful and dispassionate (Bees/Swords) and the considerate, practical and pragmatic (Beetles/Pentacles). Am I prepared to be ruthless and step on toes (Bees) or is the best way to be inclusive of others (Beetles). I suppose much depends on my expectations (Three of Moths). What I hope to achieve in my day will dictate the way I go about it.

  • Something Is Missing

    The World : Queen of Dragonflies (trad. Cups) : Five of Beetles (trad. Pentacles)

    The Queen of Dragonflies (Cups) calls for reflection and contemplation. She represents empathy and consideration of the needs of others. That being the case I am wondering who I might be 'leaving out' (Five of Beetles/Pentacles - a card of being ostracised/out in the cold according to traditional interpretation) . The World tends to suggest that we have all that we need and are now ready for a new start and a new cycle of events - but something would seem to be missing in my life...

  • Expect the Unexpected

    The High Priestess : The Moon : Seven of Moths (trad. Wands)

    If the High Priestess represents knowledge that we already know deep down and The Moon represents things which are hidden then I guess for today I should expect the unexpected. Anything might happen…!Whatever transpires, the Seven of Moths (Wands) sees me in a situation of strength. I will come out on top. The outcome is favourable.

  • Fun Times

    Four of Bees (trad. Swords) : Three of Dragonflies (trad. Cups) : Ace of Dragonflies

    There is a sense of fun about the Three of Dragonflies (Cups) which tends to represent social occasions (and parties). The Ace of Dragonflies focuses on emotion and feeling (and joy) - so the day looks as though it might turn out to be very positive indeed. With the Four of Bees and it's message of R and R it would seem that things will be swell all round!

  • Bouncing Back

    Four of Moths (trad. Wands) : Five of Bees (trad. Swords) : Two of Moths

    The Five of Bees (Swords) is usually regarded as a card of defeat and setback. Flanked on both sides by the FIRE of the suit of Moths (Wands) this spread seems very much to be about bouncing back when faced with challenges. The Four of Moths brings stability in the face of opposition and the Two of Moths, to me at least, is about finding an outlet for energy that will not only rise to and meet the challenge, but will also bring me reward.

  • Home Again

    Four of Swords : Four of Cups : Seven of Swords

    I am home again and rested (Four of Swords). I slept in until after midday - hence this rather late post. Now I DO feel a little deflated after the last week and its events (despite how tiring it all was) so I suppose the Four of Cups, which is often seen as a card of dissatisfaction and tedium, is pretty accurately placed at the centre of today's spread of cards. I need some new strategy now (Seven of Swords) to add a little interest to my life…!

  • Adapt and Cope

    Ten of Wands : Seven of Wands : Two of Pentacles

    Okay, I am exhausted (Ten of Wands). Today is pretty much a full day of travelling leaving at 5am and not reaching home until after 9pm. The Seven of Wands represents my wishes and desires for a swifter way home confronted by the reality that it just isn't going to happen ... and I will have to maintain my energy as best I can in the face of this challenge. What is certain is that I will adapt (Two of Coins) and cope.
