For our veterans, let's get to it!

Card 1: Death

Mary-El Tarot

Don't let the name fool you. Many recipients of a Tarot reading have seen way too many movies, and believe that this means a physical death. Rarely, does this card signify that. Death, in the tarot, refers to a significant change in one's life.

The transformation or change that Death can bring can be difficult, unexpected, sudden or even traumatic but it will bring with it a new lease of life. Its best to try not to resist the change the Death Tarot card brings as resisting it will only make the transition difficult and painful. Instead try to embrace the change as a fresh start. 

This Major Arcana card can also signify the need to let go of old issues or beliefs when it appears in a Tarot spread. It may be telling you that you need to draw a line under the past in order to move forward in a positive direction. A Death card transformation can be a bit of a shock to the system but ultimately it’s a positive one.

Key words: Spiritual transformation, new beginnings, letting go, endings, change, transition, sudden or unexpected upheaval.

Card 2: The Hermit

The Steampunk Tarot

The Hermit Tarot card in an upright position generally indicates that you are entering a period of soul searching, self-reflection and spiritual enlightenment. You may find that you need time alone to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, to remove yourself from the daily grind in order to discover your true spiritual self, contemplate your existence, your direction in life or your values. The Hermit can also indicate isolating yourself or withdrawing into oneself in order to recover from a difficult situation. 

This Major Arcana trump card can suggest that you may be going through an anti-social phase where you just don’t want to interact with people as much as you normally would. The Hermit is wise, mature and knowledgeable and may be an indication of someone seeking the services of a counselor or psychiatrist.  This is a time to focus on yourself and meeting your own needs.

Key words: Spiritual enlightenment, soul searching, self-reflection, introspection, contemplation, inner guidance, solitude

Card 3: The Ace of Wands

Deviant Moon Tarot

In a general context, the Ace of Wands represents good news and new beginnings. It signifies taking action, physically starting something, new initiative and finding new passion, enthusiasm or spark. It is a Minor Arcana card of accepting a challenge, getting fired up and getting in the game. It can also represent discovering your potential or talent and brings a sense of urgency and a new lease of life when it appears in your Tarot spread. This is a card indicates that you have creative spark and are feeling bold and daring. It also signifies spontaneity and excitement so expect fun times when it appears in your Tarot reading. This card can also represent fertility, conception and birth.

The Ace of Wands is a sign to just ‘go for it’. This highly action-oriented card sees you feeling incredibly inspired and enthusiastic about pursuing a new idea or project that you have in mind. You are all revved up and raring to go. Use your creative energy and passion to take the first steps and get this project underway. Even if you like to have everything planned out before you begin down a certain path, the Ace of Wands is encouraging you to listen to your instincts and follow your gut. If it feels like a good idea, it probably is. So, start with a few basic actions to get things underway, and then continue to grow and develop your ideas through more complex actions later on. The important thing is that you act now, rather than spending more time planning or researching.

Key Words: New beginnings, good news, physically starting something, creative spark, new initiative, finding new passion, enthusiasm, urgency, accepting a challenge, potential, talent, growth, action, travel, excitement, getting in the game, getting fired up, spontaneity, fun, being bold/daring, fertility, birth, conception, new lease of life.

Card 4: The Seven of Swords

Shadowscapes Tarot

The Seven of Swords represents deception, lies, trickery, cheating and lack of conscience.  This card also signifies mental manipulation, tactics, scheming, cunning, enemies who masquerade as friends and spies in your camp. It is a Minor Arcana card of dangerous or risky behavior, daring, courage and staying ahead of the game. The Seven of Swords can also represent flexibility, adaptability, sharp wit, resourcefulness, being strategic or being overly rational. This Tarot card can also signify underhanded behavior, theft, burglary, fraud, dodgy deals and a general lack of conscience. It represents escaping detection and getting away with something.

If you are involved in any sort of competition this month (formal or informal) you will want to keep a close eye out for any cheating. This can range from anything from someone cheating at a pick-up poker game to someone trying to frame you at work for something serious. The bottom line is basically to cover your backside, make sure you are doing things the right way, and then you'll have nothing to worry about, even if someone is out to get you. 

Be alert, be aware, and be sure that all you do is above-board.
