Tarot Reading of the Day

Today I was asked if I could draw a positive card for the querant. I'm really sorry but this just isn't possible! Always important to remember that the reader is the interpreter and the person who channels the energies, not the one to create them in the first place.

But I really, truly, deeply wish I were able to do such a thing! :)

The meaning of each tarot card - The 8 of Wands

The 8 of wands tarot card is a very strong card that is about harmony as much as it's about action. At first glance, they might seem like quite contradictory but it's more to do with putting on a last spurt to bring everything together. You've likely been working away at a few things in your life and at this time feeling that it's all over the place still, and proving hard to organise. In other words, success seems elusive! So this card urges you to push forwards that bit more. You will soon reap the benefits and see everything start to fall into place. 

(Have you always seen yourself as a deep and meaningful person? Then you may find yourself drawn to the Secret Tarot set. It is gentle and whispering in its method of sending its message.)

The meaning of each tarot card - The 7 of Wands

By the look of the 7 of Wands tarot card, you'd be forgiven for thinking you're in for a tense time of it. The card often depicts someone in a fighting stance and it looks an aggressive image. Well, it's true that you need to be tough and firm, that's for sure. But it's not all bad! This card also shows real advancements in your life, the fulfillment of your goals. You will also start to feel that you're coming into your own when you see this card. It's your time and you shouldn't be afraid to be assertive and stand your ground. It's time you got what you deserve. 

There are times when this card can indicate some tough opposition though. So this is another reason why knowing what you want and going for it will serve you well! 

(Do you feel you are a dark and mysterious person? Then you will find yourself drawn in to the Secret Tarot set. It's got a subtle message that seems to whisper its guidance to you.)

The meaning of each tarot card - The 6 of Wands

The 6 of wands tarot card - the Lord of the Victory! This is a card that speaks of triumph and feelings of justified pride. It's been a tough journey but the feelings of jubilation and of reward more than make up for it. So when you see this card, it's time to acknowledge that there is much to do. But don't despair, you have all the ability and opportunities to really make something happen. These are potentially life-changing opportunities - put everything you have into making it work. 

(For a more surreal tarot deck, if you're looking something unusual, try the Bosch Tarot, featuring artwork based on Dante's inferno.)

The meaning of each tarot card - The 5 of Wands

The 5 of wands tarot card is one of tension and potentially arguments so it can be a bit unnerving to see it come up. It's certainly true that you are not in for the easiest time of it. But this card isn't as negative as it at first appears. Sometimes a bit of a fight is good for us. It shows us what we are truly made of and strengthens us. Also, if these fights show around a relationship, it's not always a bad thing to have a moment of honesty. As long as you don't let tempers get too out of control, a good old row can really clear the air!

So don't panic if you see the 5 of wands. Yes, it's going to be hard work. Yes, there there could be friction. But ultimately, you will be a better person for coming through it. 

(If you are looking for something a little more surreal in your tarot card artwork, try the fabulous Bosch Tarot - taken from his artwork of Dante's inferno.)

The meaning of each tarot card - The 4 of Wands

The 4 of wands is a lovely card! I always smile when I  see it come up in readings as it is almost endlessly positive. It can mean love, marriage, unity, togetherness, children or that your hard work is about to come to fruition. See what I mean? It's a good one! This card very often shows up for new love when I'm reading for someone single. It will often refer to a summer event but you will need to keep an eye out for your own signs with this card. But no doubt about it, it'll be a sign that you want to see! 

(If you like the Rider Waite deck and find it easy to interpret you may like to try to Mystic Dreamer tarot cards. They are beautifully illustrated and great for intuitive readers.)

The meaning of each tarot card - The 3 of Wands

The 3 of wands is all about your plans and hopes. When you see this card, it's time to start rolling your sleeves up and getting on with making it happen. I like to think of the 3 of wands as a bit of a reminder card. It says, yes you need a bit of luck to come your way and get you going where you want to in life. But you also need to start actively seeking success out. 

So whether it's love, career, business ideas or family matters - whatever you dream of. This card tells you that it's time to take steps to make it all happen. It will be reality if you can stick it out. 

(If you are familiar with the Rider Waite tarot deck and like the style, then you may want to also try the Mystic Dreamer Tarot Cards. Excellent for intuitive readings.)

The meaning of each tarot card - The 2 of Wands

The 2 of wands tarot card is a very positive card for the long term future so this is speaking to you of rewards rather than instant gains. It is telling you that if you are prepared to work hard, act wisely and be patient, you will see the success you dream of. Another way of summing up this card is 'From Might Oaks from Little Acorns Grow'. So whatever it is you want, however small you may think your idea is, or however far you imagine you've got to go, this card tells you it can be done. 

So get cracking!

If you are just starting out with tarot reading, you may want to try the Quick and Easy Tarot set, which gives a simple but solid understanding and is an excellent stepping stone to more. 

The Meaning of each tarot card - The Ace of Wands

Change is afoot when you see the tarot card, the ace of wands. But never fear, it's all looking good. This is a card to show new projects, exciting opportunities and creativity around you. These are powerful and strong energies and to waste them would be almost criminal so don't hold back and certainly don't let a lack of faith in your abilities get in the way. 

There is also something very intuitive about the ace of wands, I like to be led by my heart when I see this card. You'll probably realise that it's been telling you something important for quite a while now. 

If you are looking for a set of tarot cards that helps you work intuitively, I can recommend the Cosmic Deck of Initiation - it is a circular deck, encouraging a deep connection with your inner psychic energies.

The Meaning of each tarot card - The World

The World tarot card is number 21 and the last of the major arcana cards. When you see this card it is time for you to see the bigger picture and to stop focusing only on what you want to see. So widen your horizons and, not only will you see the whole situation more clearly, you will also be helping to keep everything moving forwards. 

If you have been struggling to get a project finished, this card shows you that this is going to start happening soon. Similarly, if you are waiting for something to go full circle, this card brings you positive signs! 

(For a simple yet beautiful tarot set, I can recommend the Angel Tarot by Nikita Arnett. It is easy to interpret if you are just starting out.) 

The Meaning of each tarot card - Judgement

The Judgement card is number 20 in the tarot deck. There is a fresh and revitalising energy to this glorious card. A new beginning and leaving the past behind is ahead for you and all you need to do is choose to move in this direction. Courage is needed but you are likely to be at the end of your tether anyway when you see the Judgment card. 

You should also be prepared to make some important decisions when this card shows around situations that have been going on for some time. If you don't, you may miss out on the opportunities that this card shows to be right in front of you. 

(I can recommend the Angel Tarot by Nikita Arnett for beginners and those wanting for further psychic inspiration.)

The Meaning of each tarot card - The Sun

The Sun tarot card is number 19 in the tarot deck. This is a lovely card as it shows so much growth and beauty around the querant. If you see this card, you can rest assured that your efforts are not going to waste and you will continue to see more as time goes on. So certainly keep up the good work! 

There are also new ideas around you when you see this card so get your thinking cap on fully and exploit your imagination and vigour. This is the beginning of something good for you. 

(For a very simple yet beautiful tarot deck, I can recommend the Angel Tarot by Nikita Arnett. Excellent for beginners and those who also practice other psychic crafts.)

The Meaning of each tarot card - The Moon

The moon tarot card is number 18 and is a very deep and meaningful card so it can really make you stop and think. I associate it with some very deep and mysterious fears so in order to find out the root cause of them, you're likely to have to go quite far back. They are also fears that won't always link to the actual problem so you're going to need to really soul search. But when you hit upon the problem, there'll be no looking back. 

This card, linked with the above interpretation, can also indicate that imaginative thinking is needed. So in other words, think out of the box when the Moon shows. A little extra effort now is going to set you on a whole new path. 

(For the perfect set for the beginner tarot reader, I recommend the Angel Tarot by Nikita Arnett. It is beautiful, simply to interpret and also good for meditation.)
