  • Missing Out?

    The World : The Hanged Man : The Empress

    I get a sense from The Hanged Man that I am missing out on something. By remaining disengaged from a lot of what is going on around me and by choosing my own company over that of others I am cutting myself off from The World out there and wasting potential/stunting growth (The Empress). I need to buck up my ideas don't I?

  • Managing The Unexpected

    Page of Cups : The Fool : II of Pentacles

    The Page of Cups is surprised by the fish which appears in the cup that he holds. The Fool has no idea what awaits him once he steps of the cliff. Both of these cards suggest the unexpected. Events and incidents beyond our (conscious) control. Sometimes these events cause us setback (and despair) but the II of Pentacles in this spread is reassuring. It is a card which indicates an ability to cope with changing circumstance, a card which reminds us we can manage whatever comes our way.

  • Do Something About It!

    Page of Wands : Ace of Pentacles : VII of Pentacles

    There is a clash between the dynamism and energy of the Page of Wands and the stand back and wait attitude of the figure on the VII of Pentacles. The cards are not elementally opposed (they are neutrally aligned) - but their message IS! If I want to increase my material resources and finances (signified by the Ace of Pentacles) I need to do something about it. Standing/sitting around waiting for a windfall just isn't going to cut it, however much I feel that I am due some reward…

  • Fair Play

    King of Pentacles : Justice : Strength

    There is very much a sense of you get what you deserve about these cards, in my opinion. Justice is a card which emphasises 'fair play'. The King of Pentacles works hard and gains the benefit of his own labours. Strength (a card I associate with patience) suggests that results will come through 'quiet plodding' - a calm and steady progress.

  • Right or Wrong?

    The Sun : The Hermit : The Devil

    Today's spread reminds me very much of one of those animated shorts where the main character faces a moral dilemma and has an angel on one shoulder and a demon on the other. The Sun and The Devil offer contrasting (contradictory ?) choices which are available to me. Do I choose right or wrong? Interestingly enough The Hermit as the central card and central character in the spread is someone who can make his own decisions by thinking them through. I don’t need an angel or a demon to encourage me one way or the other. I will find my own way...

  • A Lesson To Be Learned

    The Hierophant : Ace of Pentacles : The Hanged Man

    I am interpreting this spread as a message about a lesson to be learned (The Hierophant). Until I learn how to curb spending and better control my finances and material resources (represented by the Ace of Pentacles)I will be forever 'hung up' and unable to make further progress (The Hanged Man). I need to rethink my strategies in this particular area (or rather my significant lack of them).

  • Making The Right Decision

    King of Wands : II of Swords : The Sun

    The II of Swords tends to be a card which suggests indecision. It often crops up when we don't have all the facts to hand and we are uncertain how to proceed. Flanked by the action oriented and commanding King of Wands as well as by The Sun (one of the most positive cards in the whole tarot deck) - it would seem that any fears I have of making a wrong move are groundless...

  • Which Way?

    Ten of Spirals (trad. Wands) : Ace of Spirals : The Artiste

    There is a grim determination about the ram which is used to represent the Ace of Spirals (traditionally Ace of Wands ) and an abundance of energy and drive to go with it. This is useful to know since the Ten of Spirals is a card of burdens and possible indecision in the light of difficulty (which is suggested by the image of the centaur laden down with he huge spiral shells he carries hated in his tracks at a crossroads). There is assistance also in the shape of The Artiste who paints her way through a wood...likely someone who can assist me in a time of need, and can show me the way to proceed when I am confused and uncertain.

  • Possibilities

    Ace of Stones (trad. Pentacles) : Five of Mirrors (trad.Cups) : The Mime

    The Ace of Stones is a card of potentials and possibilities as well as abundance and in this deck the Five of Mirrors (traditionally the Five of Cups) is a card of healing after sorrow, a card of renewed faith - so it looks like things might be changing around here, and it's about time after the general post Christmas holiday slump. The Mime would seem to suggest a reconciliation of past experience with present productivity (at least according to the Little White Book) - it is another card which represents renewal.
