This week’s Tarot: 15.04.2019

As we lead up to the Easter weekend, let’s see what we have in store! Please do let me know if these spreads are helpful for you – I really do enjoy doing them.

So let’s get on with this week’s cards.

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.

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!

This week’s most popular card was extremely close. Just one point separated number one from number three. However, number three was the most popular with the most points.


Number Three

The Lovers, card number 6 in the major arcana

The Lovers – harmony, relationships, love, choices

The Lovers is a card with the base meaning of some kind of connection between people, and communication. This card may appear when you have found your soul mate or a life partner. It’s not only restricted to romantic relationships, however, as this can also signify other relationships like friendship and family. Symbolising raw honesty through the nakedness of the man and woman depicted on the card, this is a time to get back down to the core and be honest with yourself and with others. This can also be read as having found someone you can be your true, naked self around with no shame or misunderstandings.

The direction this card goes can be related to honesty, being true to yourself and situations which may arise, as well as being honest with others. It’s figuring out what you want from a situation or from life in general. It’s a cue to be more authentic and real in situations – you no longer need the mask.

At the very root of the card, this signifies a choice. It could be a choice in your love life, or perhaps a choice as to what you want to be in your career or where to live your life. It’s often a sign that you’re facing a moral dilemma and you must consider all consequences before making a decision or acting.

It can also signify that you are unifying dual forces. Pulling things together in a unified way. So looking at this as a weekly forecast, I would say the best thing to do is to really look at who is closest to you, put your heads together and overcome whatever it is that is challenging you, either individually or as a collective.


Number One

The Queen of Cups Tarot Card from the Rider Waite set

Queen of Cups – emotionally stable, compassionate, intuitive, in tune

The Queen of Cups is a very beautiful card indeed. She’s sitting right next to the sea, and the element of water which is also related to emotions. She has a cup in her hands, but this one is closed compared to many others in the deck which are open or flowing. This shows that she uses her inner wisdom and feelings as judges of situations.

She is connected to her emotions, but as her feet are resting on the shore, she is not overwhelmed by them. She is in control of her feelings and emotions and is very calm and serene.

This week may be a week to embody the queen of cups and use your empathy to listen to what others have to say. There may be someone close to you who needs an ear to listen or even a shoulder to cry on, and it is important that you can offer that to them. Being able to read and understand situations around you is a virtue gifted by this queen. You may well already be a healer or some kind of therapist – or just a great friend who allows people the space to express themselves freely. It also may be a time to listen to your ‘inner voice’ in regards to what is going on in your life.


Number Two

Four of Wands card from the Rider Waite Tarot Set

Four of Wands – joy, harmony, celebration, a homecoming

This is a card with so many positive attributes. It can signify success on something you are working towards, it can be a homecoming of sorts, whether physical or metaphorical, it is a celebration of all that has led to this point.

You may be returning home to the people or places you feel most comfortable with. It could be the completion of a renovation you have done on your home or just the feeling of having found your own habitat – where you thrive and you are doing so well. This card is very much focused on the home environment and taking a pause to see just how far you’ve come.

If you have been working on a project, it may be that you are about to hit a key milestone along the way. If you are almost finished with a project, this can signify that the project was completed successfully. Now is the time for celebration and joy! It is so important that we measure our success and sit back and look at what we have achieved – and this card prompts you to do just that.

Rest after a long project is so important, especially if the whole task is not complete yet! Storming ahead and carrying on after shouldering a large responsibility can be a grave mistake. Recognising our achievements and celebrating with those we love is important and a vital part of human life.


Overall, the energies of this week are focused very much on being in tune with ourselves and our relationships, celebrating our achievements and working together to attain goals. That does not sound like the worst week at all!

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!

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!
