Why you should have a Tarot reading when you’ve already made up your mind

“Be sure you’re right. Then go ahead.” — Davy Crockett, American Frontiersman

You’ve made up your mind. You’re going to make a down payment on a house, change jobs, enrol your child in that school, or accept a marriage proposal. Why arrange for a Tarot reading if you’ve already made the decision?

Because, as in the quote above from American frontiersman Davy Crockett, sometimes it’s a good idea to be sure, and to confirm that your decision is the right one.

The Tarot deck is a great place to find that confirmation!

It can be difficult to bounce back from many decisions. If you’re a Londoner and you take that job in Edinburgh, think of the problems you’ll encounter if you hate your boss, can’t get along with your co-workers, and despise the work itself.

And when there is a way to turn things around, it can be painful and expensive – as in a divorce, for example.

A Tarot reader can help you consider things that might never have occurred to you, or things you’re blocking from your mind.

This can be especially true when negative cards appear in a reading about a positive event, such as an upcoming engagement.

You may be ignoring the fact that your partner has cheated many times in the past, or is consistently reckless with money. If the Three of Hearts (sometimes called the “Heartbreak” card) turns up in the reading, or the Five of Pentacles (“Poverty”), a great Tarot reader might help you face the reality of who your partner is – before you accept his diamond ring.

“Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.”

—William Shakespeare

Besides, when we’re on the brink of a major life change, regardless of how certain we are, there’s likely to be some doubt in the backs of our minds.

An insightful Tarot reader can help you dispel doubts, especially if that uncertainty is keeping you from taking advantage of opportunities. Drawing the Nine or the Ten of Pentacles (both cards are about wealth and fulfilment), or the Sun (“Happiness”) may help you to know your decision is the right one.

So whether you’re in doubt or whether you’re sure, it’s always a great idea contact a Tarot reader!

Is the Devil really evil?

“Sometimes the Devil is a gentleman.”

— Percy Bysshe Shelley

The Devil is, perhaps, one of the most frightening cards in the Tarot.

In the Rider Waite deck, the picture shows a scowling demon with wings and goat’s legs. Holding a flaming torch, he looms over a horned and naked man and woman, who are chained by their necks to his black perch.

In the Old English Tarot deck, the image has the protruding breasts of a woman, and the two chained figures are strange, mythical beasts. We love the Housewives’ Tarot – just take a look at the image to see why…!!

 

Given these images, it’s no wonder the card is so widely feared. But if the demon appears in your reading, know that this Devil does not necessarily represent an evil being. He does, however, indicate that something in your life needs your attention.

Like the Sun, the Moon, the Fool and the Empress, this is a Major Arcana card. These Tarot cards signify major issues in your life and lessons you need to learn. Therefore, Major Arcana card meanings can be complicated and profound.

This card often denotes a dysfunctional relationship – but not necessarily with a person.

Just as the man and woman in the picture are chained, the card may represent some kind of bondage or destructive connection. Are you a slave to your job, to a habit, to a family member, or to a desire for material things? The Devil may be saying you’re caught in an unhealthy or unproductive situation. The card can also be about addiction, whether to a person, a substance, or a behaviour, such as compulsive shopping or gambling.

Sometimes the Devil arrives to call attention to your rage. Have you recently had a spat with a loved one? Are you nursing a grudge against a friend or co-worker? Beelzebub on the card is saying it might be time to let go of your anger and forgive.

In addition, when the card appears in a positive position or is surrounded by more friendly-looking cards, it could be saying you need to break your bondage to others’ expectations, give a freer rein to your creativity, and release your inner imp!

So be aware that when the Devil pops up in your Tarot reading, he’s not there to announce doom, but merely to caution you about the importance of such things as introspection, forgiveness, or spontaneity.

Are you as cheerful as the Page of Wands?

A figure stands calmly in a desert with a cloudless azure sky overhead and three pyramids rising in the background. He grasps a wand with both hands and examines the top of it. This individual is clothed in bright yellow, with a cape, fringed boots, and a pattern of lizards on a short tunic. This is the Rider Waite deck’s Page of Wands.

Wands denote primal energy and inspiration. Just as the wands in the Tarot deck often sprout branches of greenery, the suit of wands has to do with growth, expansion, creativity, and new life for things, people, ideas, and relationships.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotPages may represent children or young people, or the childlike qualities and behaviours of joy, innocence, enthusiasm, and playfulness. Negatively, pages may indicate immaturity, naïveté, an inability to make decisions and commitments, and impulsiveness — as in poor impulse control.

If a Page shows up in your reading, it may indicate a person, often a child or a young female. For the suit of Wands, the person may be ginger-haired with a ruddy complexion and light eyes. The individual may be an Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius, will probably be energetic and loyal, and will have a love of learning.

The Page of Wands may be bringing you passion — whether in romance or in a pursuit such as your work or a hobby. The Page means an opportunity is on the horizon for you to achieve your fullest potential — as long as you approach it with child-like happiness and enthusiasm while avoiding overtly dangerous and risky behaviour. So express your individuality and take advantage of this chance to change for the better.

For more information about this and other exciting Tarot cards, I offer single-card, three-card, and Celtic cross ten-card readings via email. Your reading will include a photo of your card spread as well as a detailed written report about your personalised reading and each expressive card.

Or, if you’re in London, I’d love to read for your guests at a party, function or corporate event!

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!
