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 23 October - XII HANGING MAN

The Hanging Man can represent a period of suspension. Looking at things from another angle is also an aspect of this, the card numbered twelve in the major arcana. In order to activate both of these aspects, we need to practice blocking out the things that do not matter, calming our inner selves so we can listen to the messages we have within us, that exist when all else is stripped bare. Only then can we be open to the true messages of the universe and know what our next step should be.

Card of the Day for Friday 22 October - VIII of Cups

There are some things that resonant in my heart that are never the less holding me back and I need to have the strength, courage and determination to separate from these things and walk away. Only by doing this will I be able to move to the next level. All that I do is through my heart and I need to be able to focus on the outcome and make the necessary changes to simplify my overly complicated and busy life so I can find time to do the things that will be most actively and effectively creating the future reality I want to manifest.

Card of the Day for Thursday 21 October - Queen of Coins

Moving up the hierarchy but still within the same grounded, practical energy of the suit of coins. The queen is the feminine energy of the duality that rules this suit. She is kind, fair and even, gentle yet knows what must be done and will do it for the greater good. She looks at the world with a realistic eye but it does not prevent her from seeing all the beauty and potential that surrounds her.

Card of the Day for Wednesday 20 October - Knight of Coins

Knights speak of action and coins or pentacles refer to the practical realm - things that we need to deal with in order to live in the mundane world. The Knight of Coins is calling us to act on the things that have become stagnant in our lives. Today is a great day for leaping into work on our finances, the home or other things we may have pushed to the side while we are spending time with are thoughts, dreams and emotions.

Card of the Day for Tuesday 19 October - XX JUDGEMENT

Yes, I absolutely did shuffle, even a little more thoroughly than usual. This is definitely meant to be my card again today.

Am I being too judgemental or not judgemental enough? Am I being too forgiving of myself and others or should I be more discerning and subjective when looking at the gap between how things are and how I would have them be? What will matter once all is said and done? At the base of it all is the need to be your own, true, authentic self for in that is something that no one else can do better than you and is at the heart of the reason why we are each here on this earth.

Card of the Day for Monday 18 October - XX JUDGEMENT

There still appears to be a lot of activity in regards to major life changes and activities as is reflected in the abundance of cards from the major arcana being chosen as my card of the day. It is a completely random process that I follow to select my card of the day and one that occurred naturally when I started this blog even though it is not usually how I select random cards. Shuffling the cards well until I feel I have connected with them, splitting the deck into three and selecting the top card from the middle pile. Nothing particularly unusual but incorporates enough chance to allow the significance of repeated cards to be felt well, such as with the Judgement card which I also selected three days ago.

The energy of the Judgement card that represents assessing our life and how we are taking responsibility for it in the past, present and the future is the aspect of this card that is speaking to me most strongly at the moment.  The concept of living a purposeful life has attached itself to my consciousness and defining and living with that concept if where I very much am at the moment. This is such an empowering position and I am excited by the things I am creating in my life.

On the flip side, I am very well aware of the macabre predictions that a sequence such as the Tower followed by Judgement may represent and while I cannot lie my life in fear, my prayers will be strong for my family and friends at this time as well.

Sudden and unexpected change. This card foretells of a massive upheaval however this kind of change is sometimes the only way to get the stagnant areas of our lives flowing.
