This week’s Tarot: 08.04.2019

We started the Sunday Spread last week, but unfortunately there was no time to get the cards out and write about them yesterday! So instead, we will do it today. We are still at the beginning of the week – my calendar starts on a Monday – so I think we’re safe. So let’s begin.

First, you will need to focus on the cards, and let your intuition guide you to the one which is relevant for you this week.

1, 2 or 3? Which feels right to you?

Here are the three cards. Focus, see which one feels most relevant to you. Further down in the article we will be discussing each card in turn and what it can mean or imply.

There are many tarot spreads available for you to choose from, and many decks nowadays have their own spreads they have created based around their theme.

This deck is simply the Rider Waite deck, which many people will know or have seen. This is a more simplistic set, which is great when you are starting to learn tarot. I started with a highly decorated set, and it was very difficult to start learning with!

So if you have chosen your card, let’s get onto the reveal and what they mean!

The most popular option was number two. So below, we will reveal the card, and look into what it means for the week ahead.

Number Two

The Emperor Tarot Card

Number two is The Emperor card. This card represents a ‘fatherly figure’, and you may well be taking on that role regardless of your gender. It is said that this applies to providing for your family and protecting them inside and outside the home. You are perhaps the ‘breadwinner’ at home, the one who is working, or earning the most amount of income. You may also be seen as an emotional rock for someone – offering unconditional support emotionally.

You may also be seen as a leader, or be in a managerial role at work. As a leader, you are seen to rule with a firm but fair hand. You enjoy being in a position of authority, and giving instructions to others.

This being drawn for a weekly card refers to a situation involving rules and regulations. You can create calm out of chaos by breaking down a situation into smaller, more manageable chunks. Be sure to stick with a strategy you are following in order to get things done and see it out until the end. If you have gained experience through your life, now is a great time to pass it on through advice, teaching or other methods close to your skills.


The other two cards meanings are below. It is interesting how The Emperor was the most popular card chosen!

Number One

Page of Cups Tarot Card

This card suggests that a new idea or an opportunity has come to you out of nowhere. Your creative energy is flowing, and now is the time to seize it and make something of it – if you so choose.

The Page of Cups teaches you to keep an open and fair mind when approaching new and old opportunities. Be sure to stay curious and explore things which catch your eye. As is seen in this card, there is a fish popping out of the cup the page is holding – be curious even about this!

This card is often found when it is necessary for you to listen to and follow your instincts. The messages and ideas which you are drawn to may come from completely unexpected places – like a fish from a cup – but go with the flow and see what lies ahead.

Taking it down to the core, rudimentary meanings – this card may indicate you are in for an unexpected pleasant surprise in your life or related to you. It will usually be a surprise related to emotions or relatonships, as the suit of cups is related to emotions and feelings. Just know that you cannot force this surprise. It will happen when it needs to happen.


Number Three

The Four of Swords Tarot Card

This card shows a person resting as though they are a statue. There are three swords hanging on the wall in the background behind them, and one sword is positioned next to them.

Take a rest before you are focused on trying again. If you have just undertaken a huge milestone, this card is telling you to take a step back and rest before you undertake a new task, or another part of the task you are currently completing.

The constant pressure of stress or tension can make even the hardest of us break – this is why we get holiday leave in an annual year! We are not built to be constantly slaving away at the same thing all the time. This card may be telling you to take a break from what you are doing in order to rebalance and find yourself.

It can also be related to gathering yourself together after a life event, such as a death in your family or friend group, perhaps a break-up or the loss of a job. Take a step back from things and regain your perspective. Now is not the time to take those big decisions you may have been worrying about or what to undertake.

The person laying down is also in seclusion. They are alone and gathering their strength. Perhaps now is the time to start using the meditation app you downloaded months ago but never got around to setting up? Or perhaps you just need time to think, relax and be yourself away from life’s stresses and strains. You can also use this period of time to reflect on how far you have come. If you are working on a project, assess what has been completed, and what needs to be done for that project to be finished. It’s a great time for inner reflection and figuring out the next step solidly before you take the leap.

So which card were you drawn to? Are the energies something you can harness this week in order to get things done? Let us know!

Dark Moon Energy


The New Moon is almost upon us!
In central Europe, the moon will be new at 10.50 on 5th April 2019.

In celebration of this, I decided to pull a tarot card to see what the energies are surrounding this moon phase. Many people use the new moon as a time to recover. It’s most commonly used for darker magic, or perhaps binding or banishing spells and work. The moon is completely vanished from the sky at this point, and it is not letting out any light. It’s the perfect time for dark magics, as well as concealing objects or planning things which must not be seen.

The tarot can be used in many ways, and there are many different methods of divination. You can use the card to do a reading about yourself, about a situation, about others. You can also use the cards to see which energies are the most prevalent at this point in time.

Using the Rider Waite Tarot deck, the one which most people seem to have used or seen at some point, I decided to sit and focus on the new moon. What would it bring? The card I pulled was the Ace of Swords.

Ace of Swords card from the Rider Waite tarot deck

As with all things related to swords, the ace is very direct. You may be on the verge of a significant breakthrough. There may be a new wave of thinking which changes your perpective on things in a new way. Either way, this card is an encouragement.

You, or a project of yours, is in ‘expansion mode’. It is starting to stretch to fulfil all it needs to succeed. New ideas are able to be embraced, you are craving stimulation and you will jump at learning something new.

Now is an excellent time to start a new project. This project will likely involve your mind, creativity and communication skills in some form or another. Perhaps you will look at launching your own blog, taking a writing class, brushing up on your art or logical thinking, or taking a simple step in the direction you wish to go creatively.

It is worth noting that the ace is the beginning. This is the very conception of ideas, of plans, of flow. It is worth noting that the sword is direct, however it is also double-edged. This can create and destroy, depending on where you thrust it – the perfect sentiment for a new moon.

It is up to you to manage the energy. It is up to you to start the process, clear of mind and full of intention. It will then be your responsibility to carry this to its ending, or to its fruition, dependent on the path you choose to tread.

Another aspect of the Ace of Swords is finding the truth and seeking justice. Is this time you let your past go, and seek the justice you deserve? Or is it the time you need to take a stand and ensure you are able to speak up for yourself or for others? Either way, the time is now. You are ready to seek justice for yourself or others and battle your inner demons.

Sunday Spread: 31.03.2019

This week’s Sunday Spread is here! Every Sunday, we will be posting an image with 3 tarot cards for you to choose from. First, you will need to focus on the backs of the cards, and let your intuition guide you to the one which is relevant for you this week.

Here are the three cards. Focus, see which one feels most relevant to you. Further down in the article we will be discussing each card in turn and what it can mean or imply.

Three card backs from the Gilded Tarot card set. One is on the left, two is in the middle and three is on the right.

There are many tarot spreads available for you to choose from, and many decks nowadays have their own spreads they have created based around their theme.

There is another article coming soon which talks about tarot use and spreads in more depth. For now however, we are just going to tackle each of the three cards posted above and their meanings.

So if you have chosen your card, let’s get onto the reveal and what they mean!

The three cards revealed from 31.03.2019

Number One

Temperance
Moderation, balance, patience and purpose.

This one is all about balance. It’s one of the major arcana cards, and these are different from the minor arcana as they do not belong to a set of suits. Therefore, they have their own meaning compared to following a general rule of intention.
This card shows the balance between two of the most basal elements: fire and water. There is also the aspect of being half in and half out of the water. Everything in moderation is key at this time. If there are things you are trying to balance, this can indicate you are on the right track. Keep the balance, and persevere. A lot of the time, we can be very eager to push ahead with things. This card can indicate the need to slow down, see what is needed and balance accordingly. Stay true to yourself, and balance what you believe in.

Number Two

Ace of Swords
New ideas, mental clarity, breakthroughs, success.

This is it. The thing you have been searching for, the impetus to go ahead and forge new projects, to unleash new ideas, is here.
The ace of swords is the beginning of the suit of swords in the tarot. These are extremely direct and straight to the point – as you would imagine from a sword. This is the time to strike. The energies are in your favour to bring new projects to life, or to let something you are not sure of, go. The sword has been drawn – it is now up to you to utilise your mental clarity and willpower in order to make what you want to happen, happen.

Number Three

Knight of Swords
Ambitious, fast-thinking, action-oriented and driven to succeed.

This knight is on a mission to achieve their goals with nothing to stop them. This card can suggest that although you may be steadfast and unwavering in your convictions, you may feel the need to charge straight into things without thinking them through 100%. High levels of energy and force are perfect for you to ride out any storms and ‘keep calm and carry on’.
A potential downside to this card is that you may act too quickly before thinking an opportunity or task through. A ‘bull in a china shop’, as it were.
The knight of swords shows a use of intellect to attain your goals, along with the willpower to succeed. Just remember to sit back from time to time, look at the bigger picture and don’t rush ahead too swiftly.

So which card were you drawn to? Are the energies something you can harness this week in order to get things done? Let us know!
