Tarot Tuesday's Big Reveal! April 17, 2018

/ Tuesday, April 17, 2018


It's Tarot Tuesday and here is the Big Reveal! If you haven't done so on the Facebook page, please take a moment to choose the card # that speaks most to you. Once you've chosen, see below for your answer.



Card #1: The Page of Pentacles



China Tarot

Is it time to get real? Would a practical way of solving problems make sense now? Have a few people recently remarked about how dependable you have become? If these words ring true, your Tarot reading is probably taking place with the Page of Pentacles card being drawn. This is a card of seeing the light in all that is practical, and realistic. The Page of Pentacles signals the moment when those who have integrity begin to use this moral backbone to rise and take charge. As events turn in your favor, the energy of this card creates prosperity commensurate with your commitment to upholding the truth.

In the present position, the Page of Pentacles indicates that you are only now coming to certain terms about the real world. This is a good place for the card to land because in reference to your current state of affairs, you will be blessed with a calm and rational approach to all pressing problems. This is a good card to have if you are in a tense financial situation as it gives you the cleverness of a child with nothing to lose and everything to gain. Apply this approach to your income problems and you could be out of the red and into the black in no time.



Card #2: Knight of Wands



Tarot Illuminati

Are you about to make a bold move? Has a project assigned to you been executed with an impressive new approach? Are you thinking outside the box and getting noticed at school or on the job? Has a creative inspiration caused you to get to work on your masterpiece? Is a solution to customer problems inspiring you to start your own business? The Knight of Wands would likely show up in your Tarot reading under such circumstances, as it is the card of sudden solutions arriving in a flurry of inspiration.

The Knight of Wands in the present position indicates that a new idea or creative inspiration is about to consume you. This could indicate a love obsession, especially if the reality of you and a certain someone getting together would shock or scandalize the neighborhood, friends and family. The Knight of Wands appears in the present position when you are strongly considering a relationship with a much younger or older man, or a relationship that is experimental in nature; perhaps your first encounter with another woman. The Knight's inspiration is a flood of intense connections of many ideas and feelings that challenge tradition and the social order.




Card #3: The Ace of Cups



The Wizards Tarot

When you have found an emotional plateau, you will see the Ace of Cups in your Tarot reading. This card represents the culmination of a sacrifice that has been rewarded with satisfaction, contentment and a deep, lasting peace. This is the Tarot deck's card of true love and it would be hard to imagine a soulmate Tarot reading without the presence of the Ace of Cups.


When the Tarot spread reveals the Ace of Cups in the present position, you are probably getting the reading because of a new love interest in your life. Perhaps you have a strong intuition that "the one" is near. A certain lack of anxiety will bring you a sense of happiness when this card arrives in the present position.  This can also signify a promotion and/or new, good job headed your way. If you are already employed you should know that both you and your work are appreciated and valued - and you should see signs of this soon. If you are unemployed (or looking for a new job) then you need to keep looking for new opportunities. They are out there - all you have to do is find them.




Card #4: The Knight of Pentacles



The Gilded Tarot


Are the details of life dragging you down? Are finances and possessions overtaking your consciousness? Is there a new person in your life who flaunts his or her wealth but is incapable of sharing any of it? All of this dull weight of the material world will be revealed when one of the heaviest Tarot cards in the deck is overturned in your reading: The Knight of Pentacles.

In the present position, the Knight of Pentacles signals that you may be bored amidst all of your contentment. There is a tendency to not appreciate the things that keep us comfortable. The Knight is on a black horse, showing that we lose sight of appreciating a person who is providing for us. Is a generous man taking care of you while you flirt with or fantasize about other possible lovers? The combination of boredom and material comfort that the Knight of Pentacles provides is a recipe for a restless mind and spirit to find trouble. 

The Knight tells us to pay attention to the mundane and normal parts of our lives. A wise man once said,  "Take care of the little things, and the big things will all fall into place." The Knight of  Pentacles asks you to look at how you are handling your affairs, and is a grounding influence.

It's time to hone your intuitive skills for the week! By now, you know the drill: Ground yourself, by closing your eyes for a few moments, taking 3 deep breaths, and then opening your eyes. Choose ONLY ONE card. When you have the one that speaks most to you, look below to see how it resonates in your life.  Ready? Let's do this!



Card 1: The Ace of Pentacles


Steampunk Tarot

If you are in need of a reality check, the Ace of Pentacles card will be a welcome sight in your Tarot reading. Pragmatic and observant, this is the card of abundance that influences the material world to spread the wealth your way! 

You are likely to be feeling optimistic, upbeat, and hopeful about your future. Things should be going well, in general. You could well be starting something new very soon, this could be in the realm of work or your personal life, but no matter what, beneficial things are coming to you.



Card 2: The 2 of Cups


Tarot of the Hidden Realm
In the present position, the Two of Cups confirms that a union is being born or a reconciliation is occurring. Often this card appears in the present position as the person receiving the reading is about to go to a high school reunion or a family gathering. It confirms that the time to bury that hatchet or pursue passion has arrived.

The single resounding theme associated with the II of Cups is partnership. What sort of partnership is less clear, but you are in the past, present, or future, part of a powerful one. This partnership will involve absolute trust and commanding respect. It may, of course, be a particularly emotional love affair, but it could just as easily be a deep and abiding friendship. The exact nature may be revealed by the rest of the spread, or it may not. It will be a source of happiness for you, though, a presence in your life you can count on at every turn, and whose well-being will be as important to you as your own.



Card 3: The Chariot


Legacy of the Divine Tarot

The Chariot indicates a lot of energy but not free-for-all energy. It's directed, controlled, and has a goal in mind. When this card appears you are likely to be fairly clear on what your hopes and dreams involve and what you are willing to do to make them come true.

The Chariot is the Tarot card most associated with victory and control. When you see this card in a Tarot reading in times of struggle, understand that when Cesar conquered an opposing army, his victory parade made the years of struggle worth it. If you are not yet victorious, learn to appreciate your struggle, as the celebration you can have will be even more enjoyable with your challenges still fresh in your mind. If you recently accomplished a great task, be sure to revel in your enjoyment of the moment; there are no guarantees of future enjoyment, so soak up the feeling of pure triumph.




Card 4: The Sun


Tarot de St. Croix

Have you been feeling revitalized? Have you been the center of attention lately? Are you getting an award soon? Are you making a breakthrough in understanding the patterns of a relationship? Has a recent victory given you reason to be confident? Look towards The Sun's appearance in your Tarot reading as an indicator that everything is going in the right direction for you. When you are feeling at your best emotionally, physically and psychologically, The Sun confirms that it is no illusion – things really are going well!

In the present position, you have everything to gain with this card. You can get exactly what you want, and are the center of attention in doing so. Little can be lost and consequences are few when you reach out to take what you want. If there are any downsides to The Sun card being in the present position, it is that secrecy is almost impossible. You must operate in a transparent manner. Everyone should be able to see what you are doing in order for your integrity to never be questioned.

Card 1: The 6 of Wands



Druidcraft Tarot
Have you been feeling like a winner? Is there something in which you take great pride that is getting noticed? If this is the case, don't be surprised if you see the Six of Wands show up in your tarot reading. This is the card of reaping the reward, and enjoying the fruits of victory. This card stands for triumph, plain and simple.

The 6 of Wands is a very positive omen. This card also points toward literal or metaphorical movement; things are changing, in a beneficial way. A Six of Wands landing in this position  indicates that complete victory is at hand. If you are seeking the Tarot reading to see if a court case or other struggle is about to be over, this is an affirmative answer delivered on horseback. If you are looking for answers as to why you are struggling with a relationship or other personal setbacks, be they career, emotional or financial, the Six of Wands demands that you consider how pride and vanity may be getting in the way of simple solutions. The news is good, but the outcome is up to you.




Card 2: The 8 of Wands



The Witches' Tarot

Do things seem to be speeding up in your life? Is there a sense of urgency to the daily proceedings? Are you headed toward a long-sought conclusion? Is a settlement about to appear in a long-running dispute? Have you gotten closer to your goal in the past week than in the past year? Are the flirtations of a friend or co-worker suddenly more inviting? The Eight of Wands is the card the Tarot delivers when your excitement over a positive turn of events is compressing time and making every moment heightened with anticipation.

Prepare yourself for an abrupt increase in the pace of your life. Things are about to get very busy. They good news is that any projects you begin will progress quickly, you will experience few delays, and the conclusion is likely to be successful. This card is also good news for relationships, although it raises the possibility of needing to travel for relationships. All things considered, this is a good card to find in your spread, as long as you are willing to buckle down and get to work.



Card 3: The 9 of Cups


Legacy of the Divine Tarot
The 9 of Cups is a very powerfully beneficial indicator for you! It represents a lasting or powerful contentment in your life. While nothing is permanent, somewhere along your life's path you can expect to be truly happy. It is heavily tied to creative endeavor, and good wishes for the future.

The appearance of this card is usually a portent of happiness, and good things about to come. It also usually means that what you want is likely to come into being in your life. If asking a yes/no type of question, this card is the most powerful indicator of "yes". The 9 of Cups is also known at "the wish" card in tarot readings. It can mean that the things you've been dreaming of or hoping for are about to come your way- in a short period of time, too!




Card 4: The Magician



The Sun and Moon Tarot


This is a very powerful, positive omen in a reading. This card reminds us that we have the power to make a difference, in our lives and in the greater world, if we simply make a point to try. The Magician is about making higher and better use of all of one's power. Spiritual, emotional, and otherwise. This is another card that often signifies new beginnings and great expectations.

This is actual transformation of the literal and figurative world in normal ways. You are not going to have it all handed to you on a plate, but you have the potential to have that plate and a lot of what's on it if you do the magic yourself. The Magician is all about action. If you do nothing you'll get nothing. If you don't know what to do then just do something because anything is better than nothing. 

This card signals urgency- this is a situation of which you must seize to take advantage. In this position, The Magician indicates that your ability to be yourself and impress the right person, or people, can have a big impact on the direction your life takes. The Magician in this position is a metaphor for your free will and good luck combining in a rare opportunity to move way ahead in life. When this card is in this position, take your great leap forward. The time is now!

Rockpool Publishing

I've been a big fan of Fiona Horne, both as an individual and a Witch, for decades. She's always presented herself as an adventurer, and someone who truly embraces life. When I discovered she was writing an autobiography, I was eagerly anticipating its release. Upon reading, I must say, I was not disappointed.

If you're expecting a "feel good" book about magic, you may find yourself in for a shock. This is a raw, emotional roller-coaster ride. Fiona's willingness to share the good, the bad, and the ugly truly embodies the term "naked." She doesn't sugar-coat her life, and she doesn't leave anything out. She opens it up, and reveals her struggles with addiction, with relationships, and with herself.

I admit to having been a little put off  at first, by the name-dropping of so many famous people. After awhile, I came to realize that she was simply sharing her experiences, and these are the people who influenced her, both in beneficial and detrimental ways.

Her experiences are so incredibly human, from her need to fit in with a group, to her grappling with the results of her past, she has at least one story that will resonate with each reader. Her writing style is confessional, and it gives the reader a feeling of sitting by the fire, listening to a friend tell her life story in an intimate, empathic way. You feel what she is feeling in the moment of each experience.

Her dauntlessness is remarkable. Her strength is inspirational. Her adventurous spirit is incredible. She is magic, and she is beautiful- inside and out.

I'm giving this one Five Broomsticks.


For an added bonus, go check out Fiona's website. You can listen to her musings and music there.


If it's Tuesday, it's time to hone our intuition! If you haven't done so on the Facebook page, please take a moment now to ground yourself, and choose one card above that speaks to you. Once you have it in your mind (don't overthink this!), look below for the corresponding card.  Ready? Let's do this!



Card 1: Death



Venetian Carnival Tarot

If you've not been exposed much to the tarot, your first thought is that this means someone is going to die. Death does not necessarily, or even usually, indicate physical death. This card simply indicates transformation and change. This is definitely a time of deep transformation, likely to be both internally and externally, in your life.

Situations, things, and people that you have counted on or gotten used to, may no longer be available to you in quite the same way as they once were. This transition can be very difficult for some people. The change though, is nearly always needed. The more accepting you can be of change of any description during this time the better. Simply put, the less you try to control what is underway, the more comfortable this time will be for you.

Often, what you need to let go of is some sort of self-limiting belief or attitude. Sometimes, we just can't see how our attitudes are hurting us, and when that is true this time period can be a wake-up call. The energy of this time is not just change or destruction; it is change or destruction, followed by renewal. Even though one door may have closed for you, another is opening. The change is coming whether you want it or not so pluck up your courage and step through the door. You need this!




Card 2: Temperance



Sun and Moon Tarot
Temperance is a card about balance and relationships of all kinds. Friendships, family, romantic partnerships, and work partnerships all need your attention. This is also a card about alchemy or mixing and matching. You may have to try several approaches to things before you find what is truly right for you.

Although your relationships are likely to be going quite well, you may need to look at your deeper personal issues to see if or how these are standing in your way. And if they are, it's time to work through, and integrate them. The idea now is to do what it takes to find balance, in yourself, in your relationships, and with your goals and aspirations.

This card is extremely helpful if you are going through a divorce and custody battle. You can feel confident that, moving forward, things will be equitable despite past disagreements. We often cling to our more extreme positions out of a fear of what life will be like were we to move toward the mainstream. Temperance insists that in abandoning extremism, you will actually be happier, will not miss the past at all, and may find a greater degree of acceptance for who you are and what you believe. The stubborn side of your character will be replaced with tolerance when Temperance appears in the present position.



Card #3: 9 of Wands


The Wild Unknown Tarot

When you are hanging in there, persevering under pressure and holding on despite the forces pulling at the other end of your rope, expect the Nine of Wands to appear in your Tarot reading. This card is either a welcome sign that you are truly holding your own in a long-term project or that you are needlessly hanging on to a point of view that is past its time.


When this card is in the present position, it is an acknowledgment that you are in the middle of a great struggle. You might not realize that your efforts are out of the ordinary. Your battle may seem so obviously the right thing to do, that you do not realize how great and against the odds it truly is. Whether it is raising a child with learning disabilities or working hard to finish your master's thesis, you really have to be persistent in what you do to manifest the Nine of Wands in the present position.


Don't let the things you are worried about overwhelm you. Take it one day at a time, one hour at a time, if you must. At least some of your worries will very likely turn out to be imaginary. Get very specific on what you are afraid of and pick it apart. What is the true likelihood of the worry actually happening? Comfort yourself, and if you need help, don't hesitate to ask for it. Asking for help is the mark of a strong person.



Card #4: The Wheel of Fortune


Ansata Tarot

Do things in your life suddenly seem to be moving as if guided by some destiny? Are you at a critical turning point in life or in a relationship? Are you aware that every action taken could result in major changes? Is the sense that you are being swept up in the tide of events and that every movement you make only makes the changes all the more irreversible? Could you ever have predicted the shocking path that recent events have taken?

The Wheel of Fortune in the present is perhaps the most momentous placement of any one card in any position in a Tarot reading. Get ready for fate to smile on you and transform the circumstances of your life into a manifestation of your self-awareness. This is a great card to receive when you have reached a level of knowing yourself well enough to spot the times you are letting yourself down. If you have been taking responsibility for your actions lately, this card in this position reinforces the power that comes with owning your decisions.

This card always reminds us that "this too shall pass." Whether that's good times or bad times, it passes. If suddenly you find yourself "sitting on top of the world," keep your perspective, as that too, like everything else, changes. Live in the now, count your blessings, and just realize that much of life is outside of your control, but that even that is okay. Roll with any changes, and be grateful for all that makes you happy in life.
