The Happiest Cards in the Tarot Deck

No Tarot card is all good or all bad.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotEven the Death card can be positive, for it may refer to the death of something negative, such as the end of a cigarette addiction. In fact, it can be a very positive card, signalling that something is ending in order to be replaced by something much better!

Nevertheless, some cards are more auspicious than others.

The following are five of the most potentially positive cards in the Tarot deck.

 

 

The Sun

What can be happier than a brightly shining sun on a clear day? In the Rider Waite Tarot deck the card shows a brilliant sun above a happy child on a horse. This card symbolises achievement, great health, warmth and affection in relationships, and mental clarity. When it appears, it’s saying you have a potential for greatness, whether in business, in a career or other pursuits, or in personal relationships. You also have the ability and the vision to see and understand the true nature of all that is going on around you. So let the sun shine in!

The Nine of Cups

It’s sometimes called “The Wish Card!”  Be sure to make a wish the moment it appears. This can be a card about appreciation, about being grateful for what you have in life. The man on the card in the Rider Waite Tarot deck looks satisfied and well fed. He sits with a smile on his face, and the cups behind him are empty. He’s already gotten what he wants, and now he’s happy. This card, then, is about getting what you want. As always, however, be careful what you wish for!

The Knight of Pentacles

This Knight represents the rewards that can follow hard work. In the Rider Waite Tarot deck, he’s not rushing into battle; he’s sitting calmly on his faithful steed, contemplating the Pentacle or giant coin in his hand. Having persevered, the Knight has reaped his just rewards. When the Knight of Pentacles shows up in your reading, it may mean your persistence is about to pay off. Alternatively, because Tarot knights are messengers, he may mean you’re about receive good news.

The Three of Wands

This is another card about success. A man stands on a high cliff, watching ships sail below. His ships are about to come in, and so, very likely, are yours! This card is telling you to feel good about your accomplishments, whether those have to do with business, money, spirituality, career, health, or relationships. And if the accomplishments have not yet manifested, don’t despair – instead, prepare. Because this card suggests your ships will be sailing in very soon.

The Six of Swords

Okay, the suit of Swords is not the most positive one in the deck. It’s associated with conflict, and if you examine the pictures in this suit in the Rider Waite Tarot, some are downright scary. But this particular card, which shows a family making a journey by water, can mean you’re about to head off to a new, different, and better place, whether it be a relationship, job, or a state of mind. Your life is about to change for the better – ditch your baggage on route so you can be ready to embrace that change!

The Queen of Pentacles – trust her potential to bring you prosperity

“Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend”— Do you know this old song? It was sung by Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes in the 1950s and imitated by Madonna in her “Material Girl” video in the 1980s.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotThe suit of Pentacles in the Tarot corresponds to the suit of Diamonds in a standard deck of cards, and when the Queen of Pentacles appears, she may well be your best friend, especially if you’re seeking prosperity, such as a raise at work, an inheritance, or a profit or financial windfall.

Pentacles refer to life’s material side: business, property, money, debt, work and so on. When in a positive position in a reading, almost any Pentacles card heralds prosperity and/or your ability to achieve it.

Queens in the Tarot deck stand for the feminine side of life, of course, and they tend to represent the essence of their suit. So the Queen of Pentacles can empower you to solve your financial problems, manage your money more wisely, get out of debt, stop being miserly, and manifest abundance.

In the Old Path Tarot Deck the Queen of Pentacles is dressed richly in green (the colour of abundance and money), and she leans on an enormous coin.

In the traditional Rider Waite deck, this Queen rules from an ornate throne in a gorgeous rose garden. Holding a huge golden coin, she’s flanked by a rabbit, symbol of fertility, resting in the lower corner of the card.

The faces of both Queens bear serene expressions. Each trusts her own abilities. Each is at peace with the material world.

The Queen of Pentacles wants you to trust your abilities and be at peace, too: you have the power to make the best decisions, to choose competent financial advisors, and to avoid con men and charlatans. Be down-to-earth and sensible. Don’t try to keep up with the Joneses, don’t worry about what others might think, and don’t take on debts you can’t afford. You can succeed financially, says the Queen, whether in balancing your budget, making sensible purchases, or being recognised and rewarded at work.

If you’re experiencing financial problems, this Queen cautions you to calm down and stop panicking. By letting yourself becoming upset or overwhelmed, she says, you might be making things worse. So do your best to get control of your finances. Be willing to work hard. Be practical and sensible. Then relax and put your faith in the abundance of the universe – and trust in the Queen of Pentacles.

The Three of Swords doesn’t always play out as you’d expect

My American friend Kathryn is scared of the doctor!  It’s strange, as she comes from a family of medics, but nevertheless, she doesn’t like visiting the surgery. In the town where she lives, doctors are proactive in encouraging patients to get tested for various things, such as diabetes and kidney function.  So, the medical receptionist called Kathryn to book a blood test, but Kathryn didn’t want to go and politely refused.  The receptionist called again. And again.  After several calls, Kathryn still downright refused to go. She’s healthy, feels great and absolutely did not want a needle poked in her arm without specific good reason.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotHowever, the receptionist was – without exaggeration – a bully, who wouldn’t stop calling – she even called Kathryn’s best friend to tell her to send Kathryn to the surgery! That wouldn’t be allowed in England as it would be seen as a breach of patient confidentiality.

Anyway, Kathryn got really upset with the receptionist, who was continuing to call and scaremonger her into having blood taken. Eventually started to panic, Kathryn drew herself a Tarot card – and was horrified to pull the Three of Swords. This card can be particularly upsetting as its imagery – especially in the Rider Waite deck, is of a floating heart being pierced by three sharp swords. It signifies a breakup and loss, usually accompanied by intense sadness, emotional suffering and great disappointment.

Kathryn viewed the card as sign of doom and gloom, heartbreak on the horizon and reason to be worried. But actually, the image couldn’t be more appropriate for a simple blood test! A heart – the supplier of blood, and three sharp stabbing implements!! (Needles in arms…) It didn’t automatically mean heartbreak.

Still, whatever the pictoral and emotional connotation of the card, the fact that it appeared alongside a dispute over a blood test meant there would be no harm in getting the test to make sure there were no physical problems with her heart.

And, thankfully, the bottom line here is that Kathryn is absolutely fine. She had the test and now she can relax in the knowledge that everything is functioning as it should. But here’s what’s interesting…

The bullying receptionist got fired!!  The doctor had overheard her being nasty to Kathryn on the phone, and it turned out that she had a history of being overly forceful to the point of upsetting patients.  Feedback to the surgery frequently stated that the medical care was great but the admin woman was offensive.

So Kathryn’s negative and distressing relationship with the receptionist came to an abrupt end as the woman lost her job due to her unacceptable behaviour. The Tarot card’s message was fulfilled twofold.

Have you ever been faced with a card that you didn’t like, couldn’t interpret or provided a mixed message?  If you’re stuck at a crossroads of have a difficult decision to make, I’ll be happy to show you the way. You can get in touch here.

Connie’s Story – How a Tarot Reading Can Change Your Life

Individuals from all walks of life say the Tarot has changed their lives, so here’s another story in our series about life-changing Tarot card readings.

Connie

Connie Chapman is a life coach, teacher, and writer. She’s been featured in leading publications in her native Australia and around the world, and interviewed on top-ranking podcasts.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotGiven this level of success, you might ask, “How could this woman benefit from the Tarot?”

When Connie had her cards read at a friend’s wedding, the reader deduced, based on the cards, that Connie was a teacher and a life coach. Then the reader told Connie she was “too connected to her masculine energy.” She needed to accept her feminine side and change.

Connie realised the reader was correct – so much so that during the reading she began to cry.

Connie had long viewed being a woman as synonymous with weakness. Growing up, she’d watched her mother sit home while her father travelled, had exciting adventures, and earned money. He became her role model and the one she was desperate to please through her career success.

In so doing, she pushed aside qualities that she saw as weak and feminine: emotions, creativity, sensitivity, etc. But as a result of her Tarot reading, she now embraces these aspects of herself.

As Connie puts it, “This was my permission slip to allow my feminine side to be fully expressed. To peel back layers of self-protective armour I had built around my heart.”

Today Connie is no longer held back by childhood programming about what it means to be a woman, and she embraces her feminine self. You can read about Connie’s experiences here.
