  • Pay Off

    Nine of Pentacles : Eight of Pentacles : Ace of Cups

    The Eight of Pentacles makes a third appearance this week. The focus has been very much on getting things done over the last seven days - and I HAVE achieved a good measure of what needed doing. Today it looks like my efforts will see a pay off. The Nine of Pentacles suggests physical (and material) well-being and the Ace of Cups suggests pleasure and joy and harmony. It is about time!

  • Forwards and Onwards

    The Chariot : Seven of Cups : Eight of Cups

    If I can gain focus I can start to move forward again. The Seven of Cups tends to signify lack of clarity and being lost in a state of wondering what to do for the best. The Eight of Cups is a card of new beginnings - turning one's back on the past and seeking fulfilment elsewhere. I have reached the end of an era in my life. Many of my responsibilities (particularly as a father) have now been removed. I need to accept this and find some sort of positive 'closure'. Things are not bleak, even if I do not know what will occur to me on the road ahead. The Chariot is a card of victory and success...if I can maintain the balance and control that I need to steer myself forwards and onwards.

  • Opportunity

    Ten of Pentacles : Ace of Wands : Ace of Cups

    I am in a bit of a mess emotionally at the moment since, as of Sunday last, both of my children have now left home so I 'get' the Ten of Pentacles (the family card) and the Ace of Cups (high emotion) which have appeared in today's draw. They make perfect sense. What I seem to be missing, however, is the opportunity represented by the Ace of Wands. This might well be the end of an era...but it is also time for a new beginning.

  • Getting Things Done

    Eight of Swords : Six of Wands : Seven of Pentacles

    The Six of Wands is a card which represents success and achievement. In this deck this is shown by using an image of a victorious jockey. There is a lot of positivity about this card and it is very welcome in my daily draw. Feeling hemmed in and hampered by the pressing demands upon my time (a feeling which the bound figure trapped amidst the swords on the Eight of Swords card encapsulates) I need to know that I can actually come out 'on top' by getting things done. Yes...it requires a lot of hard work before I can 'harvest' the results (Seven of Pentacles) but I CAN do it.

  • In the Spotlight

    Seven of Wands : Three of Pentacles : Queen of Swords

    The Three of Pentacles in this particular deck seems to suggest being in the spotlight and depicts a ballerina on stage with roses thrown at her feet. I guess there is as much in this image about expectation as there is about performance. Sitting in judgement is the rather cold and emotionally disengaged Queen of Swords. Whatever is expected of me I will rise to the challenge just like the guy in the Seven of Wands who fights off his adversaries. I think I know what it is that I am being asked to do...and I really have no inclination to do it...but it WILL have to be done.

  • Too Much On My Plate

    Ten of Wands : Eight of Pentacles : The Empress

    Although the focus is on work today (Eight of Pentacles)- and there are a couple of things that need doing, I have too much on my plate right now - (Ten of Wands)) especially as I have just got back from a ten hour drive (round trip) to Exeter to take my son to University. I need to spend the rest of the evening having some me time (which the Empress recommends) so that I can avoid physical burnout...

  • It WILL Be Worth The Effort

    Eight of Pentacles : Three of Wands : Nine of Wands

    The sum of the value of these three cards is 20 'Judgment' : a fresh start. I am heartened by this.

    There is potential in the Three of Wands and it is a positive card here since it suggests that things can be achieved in time. The Nine of Wands represents perseverance in adversity and defiance against the odds. I have felt under attack (metaphorically at least) for a while now - but I am determined to endure. I need to keep on keeping on. The hardworking image of the craftsman in the Eight of Pentacles comes as a reminder that efforts pay off and are worth it in the end...so I am uplifted by today's cards...for a change!

    6 of Spades (Impulsive) : 14 of Hearts (Repression) : 10 of Hearts (Negativity)

    My mind-set at the moment is clearly at fault. Here is another reading which emphasises all that is bad. Locked inside myself I personify 'Repression' (the keyword of today's central card which is the 14 of Hearts reversed). This is flanked by other reversed cards which focus on impulsiveness and emotional response which lacks though or judgement (6 of Spades) as well as negativity (10 of Hearts) and an inability to see little if anything that is good. How long will all of this last…?

  • Confusion

    Ace of Hearts (Perplexed) : 3 of Hearts (Plenty) : XIV Transformation (Rx)

    I was so tired and busy yesterday that I could not find time to post my daily reading...my apologies go to those who follow this blog of my musings with Tarot.

    Today's cards follow the recurring theme of my unsettled emotions at this time. The sense that I have everything I might need which comes from the central card in the spread (3 of Hearts) is belied by the negative undertone of Transformation (reversed) which points out that I may well be in 'a situation which appears positive, but in reality is negative'. This brings added confusion, so it is no wonder that today's cards are headed up by a reversed Ace of Hearts with its keyword 'Perplexed' and its emphasis on agitated and conflicted emotions…

    I need to get out of these doldrums...soon!

  • Other People's Problems

    Ace of Hearts (Rapture) : 13 Spades (Heroic) : 11 Spades (Martyr)

    The 11s, 12s, 13s and 14s of each suit in this deck are the equivalent of court cards in other tarot decks. They seem to follow that tradition by indicating ways of being as opposed to situations. The 13 Spades and the 11 Spades are much like the Queen and Page of Swords. As ways of being these cards focus on the desire for social justice and an eagerness (compulsion ?) to take on other people's problems and issues and fight on their behalf. Today's cards alert me to the fact that being an advocate for others (a role I tend to adopt since my profession as a school teacher often requires it) can sometimes be detrimental to the self. Putting my own issues and problems aside means that I do not address them and so they build up and up...At this particular time emotions are running high (and the Ace of Hearts echoes this). I need to pay attention to my own feelings (and emotional needs).
