  • Expectations ?

    Page of Cups : King of Wands : 7 of Coins

    Each of the figures on each of these cards seems absorbed in expectation of how things will turn out. The Page of Cups looks at the fish emerging from the chalice he holds. The King of Wands looks at the leaves which sprout from his staff and the gardener on the 7 of Coins looks at the plant at his feet wondering if it will grow as tall as the one beside it… Today is full of possibilities. Like these three I am already wondering myself how things might turn out. So much could happen, several projects and plans are in progress...

  • Enough is Enough

    Temperance : 10 of Wands : Death

    The man in the image on the 10 of Wands is weighed down by his burden and this card is entitled 'Oppression' in some decks - and yet, looking closely at the image we see that the man is almost home and will soon be able to set his burden down. This is exactly where I find myself today. Tomorrow is the last day of the school term and we finish for a six week break. I have been so busy of late that I too have been weighed down. It is good to know that I will 'soon be home' and able to rest. Temperance echoes the need for balance, for getting things in the right mix (both work and play) and Death is an echo of the message that the situation (which has been so difficult to endure) reaches an ending soon…enough is enough.

  • Master of All Elements

    Queen of Wands : The Magician : 3 of Cups

    The Magician has the skill set to manipulate any circumstance and situation to his liking. He is a master of all elements and the card represents capability 'big style'. It looks like the challenge he (and by extension he is me) faces will come in the shape of the Queen of Wands (and I think I know just who this card represents). I am the measure of the challenge today, imbued with the essence of The Magician and the outcome (as represented by the 3 of Cups) looks like it will be very favourable indeed…

  • Keep The Devil at Bay

    The Devil : Page of Swords : The World

    The World sees me in a protective and protected circle, safe from harm, content, fulfilled. The Devil (and temptation)tries valiantly to turn me astray and get me off track (so valiantly and earnestly that he has gone purple in the face with effort). His tricks and wiles are to no avail. The Page of Swords fends him off with integrity - though he may waver from time to time. Like this stalwart fellow I need to beware of letting all that I have achieved (The World) be taken from me or lost through unwise/unhealthy action and behaviour. I need, like the Page of Swords, to keep The Devil at bay.

  • Don't Be Rash

    The Emperor : Knight of Swords : King of Cups

    In today's draw we see the Knight of Swords racing headlong on his quest. Although his suit is all about thought process, he is a reckless knight and acts without thinking things through caught up in his unfocused intent to get something done. I am not surprised that it seems as if the King of Cups looks at him askance. The King of Cups urges reflection. He is emotionally stable and (re)acts calmly unless he is conflicted. At the other end of the spread is The Emperor. Here is a reminder, in the shape of 'father figure' and archetype, that I have responsibilities. I cannot afford to be rash like the Knight of Swords

  • Turning A Corner

    Page of Wands : 9 of Pentacles : 8 of Cups

    The Page of Wands brings some much needed energy today and it would seem from the presence of the 8 of Cups in the spread that things really are turning a corner for me and looking up - as I leave behind circumstances and situations which are exhausted of what they have to offer me. The 9 of Pentacles is a card which tends to represent comfort and satisfaction - so it is a very welcome central card in this daily draw.

  • Today

    4 of Swords : 5 of Swords : The Star

    I took my son to the airport at 4 o' clock this morning so I can really relate to the 4 of Swords in this spread with its connotations of rest - a commodity I so desire right now. I am not so sure how the 5 of Swords fits in (or will manifest itself). Here is a card which normally represents defeat...perhaps it just stands for the feeling I have right now of exhaustion through unavoidable circumstance. The Star brings a note of optimism at the end of the line. It is a generally positive card which tends to suggest (in my readings, at least) that things are working themselves out for the best...so I can only hope.

  • An Offer ?

    Page of Cups : King of Cups : 4 of Cups

    I can't help thinking that these cards represent an offer that will be made to me today. The figure on the Page of Cups holds out a huge chalice towards me and the figure on the 4 of Cups offers a chalice to the seated and downcast figure in front of him. Should this be the case, the central King of Cups suggests that I need to reflect carefully before making a decision - which should be made in full control of emotion so that my better judgement is not swayed.

    Today's cards may well be linked to those I drew yesterday. We shall see...

  • A New Beginning

    2 of Cups : The World : Judgement

    Today's cards seem to suggest that I have reached the end of one cycle and am about to experience the start of a another one (The World). This new beginning looks as though it will be bound up with a partnership of some kind (2 of Cups) but that this time around I will have learned from my mistakes and can use my experience to chart the best course ahead (Judgement). It is almost ten in the evening as I write and nothing has yet transpired...but the day is not over yet!

  • Opportunities

    5 of Swords : 7 of Swords : 7 of Cups

    The 7 of Swords urges strategic thinking to get what I want. I need a certain amount of subterfuge to achieve my ends and though I may come out on top, I may feel that in some way the 'reward' is unjustly deserved (5 of Swords)...BUT the ends do sometimes justify the means and there are lots of opportunities out there for the taking (7 of Cups) … if can I act quickly (and deviously) enough.
