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!

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!


The excitement of a Tarot Cards Party – and the history behind them

Do you get excited about holidays such as Halloween, Christmas or Easter? Do you have fun dressing in a costume, or receiving a brightly wrapped gift, or dying eggs in festive colours? Most of us do, even though we don’t necessarily believe in hauntings, Father Christmas or the Easter Bunny.

The same principal works for Tarot cards. A Tarot reading is exciting and fun, even if you’re a sceptic about fortune telling!

Long a fun pastime, Tarot cards date from the Renaissance. The first playing-card decks were brought to Europe from the Middle East in the 1300s, and by the 1400s printed decks were widely produced. In fact, playing cards competed with devotional images as the most common uses for woodcuts. Wealthy gamers played with hand-painted decks, sometimes with added cards, such as our modern Jokers.

Because all gamblers are aware of the power of “luck,” it’s not surprising that the cards were quickly associated with good (or bad) fortune, and by extension, with fortune-telling.

The first documented Tarot decks date back to the mid-1400s in Italy, where added cards bore allegorical illustrations about such things as “Strength” and “Justice.”

The word “Tarot” probably comes from an Italian word related to “fun.” And that brings us back to the fun you can have with a Tarot reading.

Remember, you don’t have to give credence to ghosts and witches to have fun on Halloween. And you don’t have to believe in fortune telling to experience the excitement of a Tarot card reading. But if those cards predict a charismatic new lover, a happy job change, or a financial windfall – well, you just might find yourself becoming a believer!
