Card reading

The Emperor tarot card

The Emperor

The Emperor is the counterpart of the Empress, but where the Empress is care free in her abundance, the Emperor is almost strict with his own form of stability and can symbolize many different things depending on the context in which he represents himself. If you receive this card during a general reading, then the Emperor is going to provide you with a solid, continual energy to benefit your life. He does not leave a lot of room for excess change or random behavior. The Emperor is pragmatic, regal and stately. His energy is full of action and drive, and there is no room for mistakes.
Six of wands tarot card

The Six of Wands

Congratulations are in order for a success in your life recently. The Six of Wands is a card of triumph and victory and says that currently you are in a place in your life where you have the right to feel proud. Congratulations are in order for a success in your life recently. Typically this card will appear in a reading after some sort of test of wills. It is not a fluff card that represents small successes. Rather, this is a time of congratulations on something larger in your life. You can feel proud that you have put forth your best effort.
The Ace of Pentacles tarot card

The Ace of Pentacles

The Ace of Pentacles is filled with grounding and solid energy. Around the Ace of any card is the unadulterated source of power of the suit. With the pentacles the energy is that of the earth and grounded energy. Take a moment and see all of the ways in which the flows of the Earthly energies affect you. The times in which you feel grounded and those in which you are almost pulled down and sluggish even have a different relation to the Earth.
The ten of wands tarot card

The Ten of Wands

The Ten of Wands has appeared in your reading to tell you that you have taken on far more then you can handle. Your plate is too full, and you are over burdened by the expectations that you have placed on yourself. Now you feel utterly blocked both emotionally and physically, and your spirit is downtrodden. However this is the time in your journey where you must complete a major spiritual initiation. Initiation periods in life are extremely uncomfortable, but if we didn’t have to experience them, we would never make any progress. These are the times that feel the most constricted, the most painful, and the most difficult to work through.
The Five of Swords tarot card

The Five of Swords

If you have received the Five of Swords in your reading, then you are experiencing evidence at this time that you are having a hard time communicating your ideas to others. Anything that is not vocally communicated is painstaking and speculative and is an unhealthy waste of your time. This is the card that is known for ‘writing stories’ in your head that don’t really exist in real life. Really what is happening is you are feeling self-conscious, and you have come up with reasons in your mind to believe that others are out to get you.
The Fool Tarot Card

The Fool

The Fool is the card of wild abandon and new beginnings. The Fool is often depicted as a young person, with knapsack in hand who is going places. And what will be the final destination? No one knows, but it does not matter.
The high priestess tarot card

The High Priestess

The high priestess is the ultimate symbol of balance and manifestation. If you receive the High Priestess in your reading then the time has come for you to understand the balance necessary to get what you want out of life. She is the mystery of the mother, of the moon and of life. The High Priestess is a guiding card, telling you that right now you are on a path of enlightenment.
The Moon tarot card

The Moon

The Moon is a very emotional and intuitive card. It calls to light your deepest and darkest desires. When the Moon is present it is a time to be aware of how your physical health is being affected by your mental health. It can also represent being very aware to almost a hyper vigilant state, being over sensitive, and madness. Remember that fits of madness also often lend themselves to time of genius inspiration and if you are feeling exceptionally out of sorts that all of your pent up energy can be used for the greater good of your life.
The chariot tarot card

The Chariot

The Chariot calls all travelers and adventurers! This is a card of exploration and expansion that guides you on a journey that you are about to take or one that you may possibly be started on already. Now is an excellent time in your life to consider what you can do to cut back. Rather than thinking of your journey as one for vacation, the chariot usually indicates something a tad more active – a journey of the spiritual sense or even one for work and finance.
The Hanged Man tarot card

The Hanged Man

Odin, the great Norse God hung from the World Tree for nine days in order to gain the wisdom and mystery of the Universe and an understanding of mankind. So must you, in this time in your life, metaphorically take some time receiving wisdom from the Universe. There is something that you are missing because your life is moving too fast; slow it down significantly in order to identify what decisions need to be made in your life at this time. This card often comes up in a reading when one is being plagued by a certain level of uncertainty and therefore the Hanged Man reminds you to have faith in solace and allow yourself to gain perspective.
