Which Tarot cards represent bullying?

Sometimes people come to me for a reading because something in their life is not how they’d like it to be, but they don’t want to face what’s going wrong. In a few cases, people have been being bullied, either at work or in their personal lives.  This is clearly very nasty, and this blog doesn’t aim to look deeply into what is, generally, a very personal issue for those concerned. Instead, it focuses on a series of cards that may appear at this time; the fives.

The Fives often symbolise power and dominance.

Major Arcana card number Five, the Hierophant, denotes conformity. The bullying in your life is likely related to your free-spiritedness, which (through no fault of your own) somehow threatens others. Your choices: conform, rebel and suffer the consequences, or remove yourself from the bullying situation.

The Five of Wands

In the Rider-Waite deck, this card shows men with wands raised but not striking, so bullying may be subtle and temporary. The men are in different-coloured clothes, so the conflict may arise from differing belief systems. Try understanding the others’ viewpoints, and help them understand yours.

The Five of Cups

This is a card about loss. It may mean getting sacked, or being ostracised by friends. But there’s a positive side. The figure on the Rider-Waite card grieves over spilled cups and fails to see full ones, so this Five says be aware of what you haven’t lost and, as in the World War II slogan, “Keep calm and carry on.” Remember the saying, “Don’t cry over spilled milk,” and focus on all the good things you heave left.

The Five of Swords

American rock star Johnette Napolitano says, “This is one of those cards that makes you wince.” Overt conflict, hurtful words, aggressive physical abuse—that’s the Five of Swords. If this card appears, consider leaving the abusive relationship. If you choose to stay, examine your behaviour to determine why you’re staying.

The Five of Pentacles

When the Five of Pentacles appears, a bully may be making you feel bad about yourself. But behind two impoverished figures the Rider-Waite card shows a lighted church window, symbolising hope. Don’t let yourself be undermined. Avoid the bully if you can, and seek positive influences to counterbalance the negativity.

Please remember that these cards don’t only represent bullying; they have differing interpretations depending on where they’re located in the spread and which other cards are around them.

My first Tarot exhibition!

Well, it wasn’t actually a Tarot exhibition – although that would have been great fun. Anything spiritual, mystical and esoteric is right up my street. But no, in this case it was a business exhibition!

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotThe Business Show is a twice-yearly event held in London where a couple of hundred businesses showcase their products and services. Over 25,000 people visited the show, which was held at the ExCel Centre – an absolutely huge space in Docklands.

So I rented a small space and, with the help of my fantastic friend Joan, I told a large percentage of those 25,000 people why booking an afternoon or evening of Tarot reading woud be a great idea. We talked about corporate entertaining, where I’d go in and give readings to their clients to help celebrate a special occasion or event, such as opening a new branch, launching a new product, or simply thanking them for their business.

Or I can work with the staff as a team-building event – or to increase team motivation. And if the business has any sticking points, I can work with the management to help guide them through to ‘calmer waters.’ This Tarot for Business is the sort of work I love!

I spent much of the two days giving free readings on my stand, and I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who stopped by for a reading – it was a pleasure and an honour to read for you!

If you’d like to find out more about booking a corporate event, drop me an email – or tweet me!


Corporate Tarot Event in a Jewellery Store!

I had the absolute pleasure of reading Tarot for the customers and staff of Astrid & Miyu – a small chain of jewellery boutiques set in three of my favourite parts of London!

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotThe afternoon I spent with them was in their Covent Garden store to celebrate the launch of their new zodiac themed jewellery, and it was fab!! The jewellery range is exquisite: dainty pieces in beautiful metals – and the people I read for were amazing too – fun, enthusiastic and glowing with positive auras.

The shop is so pretty! It’s all pink and magical looking, situated on a cobbled street close to Seven Dials, an area oozing with mystical shops and delicious cafés.  Their other stores are in Shoreditch Boxpark and St Christopher’s Place near Bond Street – both equally appealing and definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Sophie Williams, the firm’s Brand Marketing Associate, gave me this lovely testimonial, which I’m proud to share:

“Renee was an absolute pleasure to work with for the launch of our zodiac Christmas campaign. Everyone really enjoyed their reading and came out feeling extremely positive. We would definitely recommend booking with Renee for any events you have coming up or just a reading for yourself.” 

If you’re planning any pre-Christmas events, there may still be time to arrange a treat for your staff or clients.  My diary is pretty full up to the end of this year, but it’s worth checking the date anyway, as I have a couple of spaces still available. I’m also taking bookings now for events up to June 2019. Click here to find out more about Corporate Tarot.

Many thanks to Sophie and the team at Astrid & Miyu for making me so welcome!


Tarot Cards that seem scary but are not

Some cards in the Rider-Waite Tarot deck look scary, and it can be frightening when they appear in your reading. Here’s a quick glance at some not-really-scary Tarot cards.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotDeath

This card rarely forecasts a literal death. It’s symbolic, and some deaths are good: the death of financial problems, for example, or the death of loneliness. So when you see this card, it won’t mean you’re about to kick the bucket, it means something is ending for something new – and usually better – to begin!

The Devil

The card shows Satan with a naked couple in chains. But it isn’t about demonic possession. It may refer to someone in bondage to something harmful, such as debt or nicotine. This card advises you to get rid of destructive influences in your life.

The Tower

The Tower depicts people falling from a turret struck by lightning. Does it mean disaster? Possibly, but often not. A sudden and unexpected change is coming, and this can be positive. There’s a chance something will happen that you might feel is devastating at the time, but – just like a building that comes crashing down – it gives you the opportunity to build up again in just the way that suits you!

The Suit of Swords

The suit of Swords contains numerous scary cards, such as the Ten, which shows a man impaled and bleeding. But Swords are “double-edged” and may be good or bad. Generally they signify action, change, and strong emotions; they’re intellectual cards, and have multiple interpretations.

The Five of Pentacles

This Five shows a couple in rags limping through the snow. But it doesn’t forecast destitution. It can, instead, be a caution not to try “keeping up with the Joneses” or against irrational fears of poverty that may lead you to miserliness. The card also shows an illuminated church window, symbolizing hope and support nearby.
