The 4 of Swords.

Posted on 28 February, 2020 at 5:40 Comments comments (0)

The 4 of swords is a timely card, being the last one of the week for us. It shows a girl lying down on a tree branch, having a rest after a tiring and taxing time. She still has her swords ready to pick up and she'll spring into action as soon as she's needed, but in the meantime she's taking a well earned and deserved rest. During this time she can still mull things over in her mind and work on her strategies, but at least her body is able to relax for a while. The end of the week can be tir...

The 10 of Chalices.

Posted on 27 February, 2020 at 4:40 Comments comments (0)

The 10 of Chalices has a lovely feeling of connectedness and harmony to it in this deck. The couple are obviously very in love and secure in each other's company. They don't always have to even speak for the other one to understand what they're feeling or what they need as they're so in-tune. They complete each other, offering help and support when it's needed, and of course they enjoy having fun and going on adventures together. This is a lovely aspiration to have- to be close to our friends...

The Queen of Pentacles.

Posted on 26 February, 2020 at 6:40 Comments comments (0)

The Queen of Pentacles works hard to ensure everyone has what they need. She's resourceful, caring and creative with her time and efforts, making the most of what she has and going over and above what's expected of her. Many of us are in this position; we have responsibilities, expectations and duties to deal with, as well as anything else we want to do for fun or leisure. Time management is important for us to cope with all of this, along with being able to delegate some jobs and even refusi...

The 5 of Pentacles.

Posted on 25 February, 2020 at 5:20 Comments comments (0)

The 5 of Pentacles is pretty appropriate for me personally today, as I'm sure it will be for many of our readers as this is often a difficult time of year financially, plus a lot of the UK is suffering at the moment due to floods and adverse weather affecting houses and businesses. This card traditionally relates to a lack of money and material wealth, not having much, even being destitute in some Tarot decks. What I do like about this deck, however, is that although the girls in the card don...

The 2 of Swords.

Posted on 24 February, 2020 at 6:10 Comments comments (0)

The 2 of Swords from the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight has a blindfolded woman sitting on a chair, holding her sword tight, ready to act when she's decided what the best course of action will be. She's taken herself away from distractions to help her make her choice, but it's not been an easy task which is why she's still deliberating. This reminds us that the longer we take to come to a decision about important matters in our lives the longer we'll be in a static position. We don't want to rus...

Strength.

Posted on 21 February, 2020 at 5:15 Comments comments (0)

The final card of the week for us is Strength, again a card with someone removing a mask, so re-enforcing the message of being ourselves. There is a little Yoda type figure in the corner, reminding the woman who's facing the lion that “Size matters not,” to quote the movies. This message can help us when we're in a difficult situation, where it seems we're not going to succeed or if we think we're weak and can't accomplish our plans. Strength isn't just about how strong we are phy...

The Knight of Wands.

Posted on 19 February, 2020 at 6:35 Comments comments (0)

The Knight of Wands sees a man and woman riding away from a restrictive situation, throwing off their masks and looking forward to living a full and authentic life together. They don't want to be shackled by expectations any more, so even though it's a scary thing to do they're willing to take a chance and see where it takes them. This is a very difficult thing to do; it's certainly much easier to give someone else advice than to act on it ourselves. Are we being true to ourselves, are we act...

The 4 of Pentacles.

Posted on 18 February, 2020 at 6:10 Comments comments (0)

The 4 of Pentacles card has a girl sitting in a remote setting, holding on tight to her coins while keeping a watch so no-one can take away what she has. This will get her the result she wants as it'll prevent anyone removing them from her grasp, but it also means she'll have a lonely and suspicious life and she'll struggle to do much else while she's in this static situation. Finding the balance between being careful and extravagant, or greedy compared to being charitable are the topics thi...

The Emperor.

Posted on 17 February, 2020 at 6:40 Comments comments (0)

I used the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight in one of my private readings over the weekend and enjoyed reading with it so much I thought I'd use it for our daily cards for the next couple of weeks. Today's card is The Emperor showing a with a man of two halves. He looks to be adaptable, able to fit into any situation he needs to be in and do the job he's been tasked with. The world he lives in is topsy turvy and he needs to be ready for anything that comes his way. How many of us appear to be diff...

Posted on 14 February, 2020 at 6:20 Comments comments (0)

The King of Cups and Knight of Coins relate to going after our dreams, following our hearts, but being aware that we need to put in plenty of work to ensure success in our chosen areas. The King of Cups is creative and intuitive, understanding what makes people tick. This helps inspire us to focus on projects where we have some input or control, things we can pour our hearts into and produce results that make us happy. The Knight of Coins has lots of energy and enthusiasm, encouraging us to k...

The Page of Wands and 5 of Swords.

Posted on 13 February, 2020 at 6:45 Comments comments (0)

The Page of Wands and 5 of Swords are quite different types of cards today. The Page is a youth full of vitality and enthusiasm, eager to try new things, whereas the 5 of Swords has a deceptive looking person causing upset to another, leaving them despairing at their situation. The upset person in the 5 of Swords is heading towards the Page in the first card, showing that things can improve for them once they're out of the vicinity of the woman who appears to have stolen the swords. It can be...

The Tower and the 10 of Swords.

Posted on 12 February, 2020 at 6:20 Comments comments (0)

The Tower and 10 of Swords are both cards that look to be more negative than positive, but it's often the case that a period of upheaval is needed to clear the way for more favourable circumstances to come into our lives. Both relate to turmoil and pain, with The Tower likely to be something we not expecting coming our way. The more encouraging aspect of the 10 of Swords is that this relates to coming to the end of a situation, making way fro new beginnings. How we deal with the difficult iss...

The 3 of Swords and the 7 of Cups.

Posted on 11 February, 2020 at 5:05 Comments comments (0)

The 3 of Swords and 7 of Cups both have women trying to escape from the world around them; the woman in the 3 of Swords looks upset and as though she wants the pain to end while the woman in the 7 of Cups looks a lot more peaceful while she's thinking about all the option available to her. This reminds us that even the worst of situations will dissipate over time, leaving us with choices to make that we may not have even consider would be possible previously. If we're in a difficult predicame...

The Queen of Wands and the 8 of Wands.

Posted on 7 February, 2020 at 5:30 Comments comments (0)

The Queen and 8 of Wands have a message of achievement and action today. The Queen looks satisfied with her situation and confident in her actions, knowing she's on the right path and her plans have played out the way she wanted. She's worked hard to get to this position, applying herself with energy and assertiveness to the projects she's been involved in. The 8 of Wands is full of movement with a witch flying through the air on her broomstick, reminiscent of Samantha from the 60s TV show Be...

The 2 of Wands and The High Priestess.

Posted on 6 February, 2020 at 4:50 Comments comments (0)

The 2 of Wands and The High Priestess (both baring the number 2- twos in Tarot relate to balance and partnerships) encourage us to listen to our intuition and see if there are alternatives to the situations we're dealing with. Contemplating matters and considering another way of approaching them rather than doing the same as we always do without really thinking about it can help bring about interesting and helpful results. We may make new discoveries, be excited again about something that was...

The 10 of Wands and Strength.

Posted on 5 February, 2020 at 4:55 Comments comments (0)

The 10 of Wands and Strength help us persevere and remind us we have the resilience needed to keep going and get the job done, even when we feel overwhelmed and oppressed by the load we're having to deal with. We often take on more than we can reasonably manage, feel we can't say “no” to requests or just find there's a lot that needs our attention, and in these circumstances it's not long until the toll of this can be too much to bear, especially with other day to day responsibili...

The 4 of Swords and the Page of Cups.

Posted on 4 February, 2020 at 5:25 Comments comments (1)

The 4 of Swords and Page of Cups from the sassy Vanessa Tarot give us a worthwhile message today; that of taking our time before rushing into a new project. The 4 of Swords shows us it's ok to take some time out and evaluate our situation, particularly if we've been busy or had a lot going on recently. We'll burn out if we don't take a break and check where we're at with our plans. The Page of Cups taps into the vitality of youth and following our dreams, finding happiness in the things we en...

The King of Cups and Knight of Wands.

Posted on 31 January, 2020 at 6:35 Comments comments (0)

The King of Cups makes another appearance today, this time along with the Knight of Wands. The King is quite static, whereas the Knight looks full of energy and raring to go. The figures in these cards are looking at each other as though they're having a staring contest, each wanting to push their methods onto the other without backing down on anything themselves. Even the colours of the cards are in opposition to each other. Too much of one extreme or the other could cause us either to take ...

The Magician and The Fool.

Posted on 30 January, 2020 at 6:25 Comments comments (0)

The Magician and The Fool, both from the Major Arcana and the first two cards from the deck, relates too new beginnings for us today. The Magician is busy learning his craft, brushing up on his skills and ensuring everything is in order, while The Fool is setting off on his journey, though about to walk over the edge of the cliff if he doesn't heed the warning of his dog companion! Even if we've prepared for every eventuality, read all the books and done all the courses, nothing compares to a...
