These pages contain my thoughts on the meaning and messages of tarot cards that I have drawn for myself. Some of this will be based on traditional interpretations of each card however my intention is to provide more intuitive offerings that are particular to my own life and circumstances at the time.

Sometimes, however, one cannot always see the forest for the trees so I welcome and appreciate comments with any further insights others may like to extend.

Thank you for your visit here; may you find something that resonates within your soul amongst these humble writings. Blessed be.

Card of the Day for Saturday 18 September - XVII STAR

Sorting out what we desire most is important. Taking a step out of our mundane head space to spend time amongst the stars can help us dare to dream so that we can open our hearts to the life that is calling to our inner Self.

Card of the Day for Friday 17 September - X of Cups

This card is speaking to me about the importance of family, of those who we are forever connected to, of companionship and of unspoken loyalty, even through pain and arguments. When we are without our families, we are without part of ourselves. We can push our bad feelings aside, but we would always wish it to be better when we aren't together.

The ten of cups is a reminder to cherish your memories and the moments you have in the present and those you will have in the future. Build strong connections in your heart and think with love on those who are not part of your life. Appreciate those who are around you and continue to invest in that relationship because it makes you who you are.

Card of the Day for Thursday 16 September - Ace of Coins

Starting practical ventures; getting back to basics. I have no need for more words for this card for me today, it is already speaking volumes to me and my life at the moment.

Card of the Day for Wednesday 15 September - III of Swords

This card is about regathering and refocusing on your goals and while I am in two minds at the minute about wanting to just jump in and do anything or just try to choose little things to help me chip away at the many monumental tasks before me, this card is giving me wise counsel. My period of rest is not over and it is definitely an investment in my future. I need to take the necessary time to plan and to be sure of what outcome I need to be working towards.

Week Ahead Spread for Wednesday 15 Sept to Tuesday 21 Sept

Here are the cards I drew for the Week Ahead Spread today:

Wednesday 15 September - X WHEEL

This card for me at the moment is about following my path; about taking steps that progress my spiritual journey and the reason I am here on this earth.

Thursday 16 September - IX HERMIT

I think this relates to an appointment I have on this day; I'm expecting to do a lot of inner review.

Friday 17 September - King of Wands

There is a need for action and determination - perhaps even stubbornness - for me on Friday. A day filled with activity where I am in control of the choices I make in regards to what I do with my time will result in great success.

Saturday 18 September - Page of Swords

There is a need for me to focus on communicating what I am thinking. With my plans for this day being very much a day where I am giving my time and actions for others when there is a deep level of pain surrounding this for me on many levels, I've usually felt it better just to repress my thoughts rather than cause others pain as well as I don't believe there is any way that my feelings will be supportively received. This is clearly not helpful and something I need to work on.

Sunday 19 September - VII CHARIOT

Change. Travel. Choices. Yep, that sounds about right for my Sunday. This is also potentially carrying on the abundance of Major Arcana energy that appears earlier in the week in this spread and also seems to be just generally with me at the moment.

Monday 20 September - II of Coins

A need to juggle finances today, as is the case most days but doing this on this day (as I should each Monday in regards to my business paperwork routine) and making sure I stay on top of things is well advised at this time.

Tuesday 21 September - VII of Swords

My feeling from this card is about knowing what to keep secret and when to hold my tongue. I am having a time where I am acknowledging that there are a lot of things I have been holding too close to my chest but there is a reason why this is sometimes the case and I will be well served to consider this on this day in particular.

Presiding Card - Queen of Coins

Sometimes I like to chose an extra card to reflect an overall mood of the seven days of the spread and this time it was the Queen of Coins. She is practical and she is efficient. She is dominant but kindly pragmatic. She does what needs to be done, without waste and without fuss. She is a home maker and a planner for the needs of the future. For these next seven days, she is me.

Card of the Day for Tuesday 14 September - XIX SUN

One of the most positive card of the deck, as a major arcana card, this foretells of positive energy on a grand scale in regards to major life events.

This card is about success, power, effectiveness, fulfilment, satisfaction, superior performance, brilliance, light, energy and generally feeling a great sense of unity with the active energy of the universe but mostly this is a card about feeling fantastic beyond words.

Somewhere, I have an understanding of what it is like to live this card but I don't feel it at the moment and haven't done so for a very long time. That said, after doing some wonderful work with the tarot with a great bunch of friends today, there was a strong message there for me about stopping to smell the roses and being able to see all of the wonderful things in my life and acknowledge them with my whole heart and soul. This is how I am taking the meaning of the Sun card as well.

Card of the Day for Monday 13 September - II of Swords

This card for me today is full of questions...

What am I blinded by?
What am I refusing to face?
What will I not let go of?
Why did I feel the need to create this reality - is it protecting me and if so is that time of protection now expired and do I find that I need to step out from under the mask and really see myself and all that surrounds me?

The message from this card today is that there are none so blind as those who will not see.

Card of the Day for Sunday 12 September - X of Wands

The Ten of wands is about having too many burdens to carry - am I taking on too many things too quickly? On better days I have a tendency to try to do as much as possible, perhaps to make up for the days where I achieved so little, or maybe just because somewhere within me is actually an active person with a passion for life and that person is so much closer to the surface and therefore has a greater say in the things I do. Either way, I need to stay grounded and keep perspective. Putting unrealistic expectations on myself will be detrimental in the long run.
