Tarot Flirts with Astrology ~ Your Cards for Today

Aquarius ~ 10/Swords (reversed)

There’s nothing worse than being nailed to the wall, other than being pinned down and cornered to do something you were hoping to get out of, or being called out on the rug to explain yourself or your actions– and this last one is going to be a spine tingling adrenalin rush experience for some of you Aquarians.  This is always a difficult card when it rears it’s ugly head, and for many of you, you didn’t see this coming (until now).  The best thing about this card is that it’s reversed.  Many of you are going to claw your way out of an unpleasant confrontation, or situation, and find solid footing once more.  Kiss the ground when you get there, and make sure this doesn’t happen again, do what you have to do, change what you have to change.

Capricorn ~ King/Swords (reversed)

Something is left unsaid.  Communication is not happening, and it has to be resolved before it’s too late.  There are reasons and ways in which things that need to be said, may never be heard.  Make sure you have no regrets.  Don’t be afraid of sounding silly, don’t be afraid to face disagreement, don’t be afraid to be wrong, don’t gloat if you are right.  The words lay like a choking parcel of food caught in the throat.  Don’t swallow them.  Open your mouth and set them free, along with your conscience, your soul, and your peace of mind.

Pisces ~ 3/Swords

Some of you may face heartbreak or disappointment.  Lessons are learned, wounds will heal.  Life will pick you back up and carry you forward on your path, mercilessly marching you towards new horizons and experiences and awakenings.  What we learn from heartbreak, pain, and sorrow is that it’s not the end, but only a pivotal point on our journey.  Be strong, ride the waves, wait out the storm.  Calm seas and peace await once the clouds have parted.

Aries ~ The Tower

Many of you are going to be called upon to endure great changes and disruptions in your life.  For some it may be connected to relationships and family, for others it could be jobs and careers, and for still others it will be something unique to you and your personal experience, earth-shattering, life-changing.  Oh, how we fight major life transitions, kicking and screaming our way through the storm, even when we know that things will be better when we reach the other side.  Many of you Aries will be put to the test, stretched beyond your limits, tried by fire, tempered like steel.  This is where you find out how strong you really are.

Taurus ~ Temperance (reversed)

This card is all about balance in our lives, and since it’s standing on it’s head for you, there’s a problem in this area.  Many of you may find yourselves feeling up in the air, either overwhelmed with work, or not getting enough hours; some of you may be experiencing unexpected upsets with health issues, which so often kicks our lives out of balance on a variety of levels.  You’re like a cat right now, Taurus, in free-fall.  You’re going to have to figure out what you have to do to turn yourself around so that you land on your feet.

Gemini ~ Knight/Cups (reversed)

For some Gemini, the Knight-in-Shining Armor fairytale is going to remain a myth.  For some of you this may mean that you have unrealistic expectations, and if you don’t lower the bar to a more human level, no one is going to pass the test, no one is going to be quite good enough.  Developing a successful relationship with someone means that you learn to accept their very human flaws (This doesn’t mean that we “settle” for losers, which is the flip side of this coin.).  It means that human beings aren’t perfect, and everyone has their own little quirks; and if we meet someone and fall in love, you learn to accept the WHOLE person, quirks included.

Cancer ~ 7/Cups (reversed)

Many of you Cancers will be making very important decisions during this period, and some of you will not be facing all the facts and may even be colorizing your choices and decisions with rosy glasses and less than a solid grip on reality.  Be sure to honestly look at all the questions in order to find all the answers.  Study the choices and brutally asses whether you can make them work in the real world.  In order to have a successful game plan, you have to have a logical and realistic course of action.  Now, go for it, Cancer!

Leo ~ 4/Pentacles (reversed)

Many of you Leos may have issues coming up that you’ll find rather challenging during this period, and some of these issues will involve relinquishing control (a horror scenario for strong and independent Leo).  You may also be faced with unexpected financial circumstances that require substantial payments, which means breaking into savings, which means parting with your dearly beloved and precious golden coins.  I know, Leo, you lovingly tend your growing nest egg and having to slice it open and remove a chunk is going to be difficult and unpleasant.  Never fear, once this issue is resolved, life will resume as before.

Virgo ~ The Moon (reversed)

You will find yourself surrounded by deception.  Either someone isn’t being honest with you, or you are not being honest with yourself.  Some Virgos might feel that they’ve entered the twilight zone.  There’s a very thin line between reality and fantasy, and when you find yourself in an extremely stressful unpleasant situation, it can make recognizing this line very difficult, which can make it dangerous on a variety of levels.  During this time, seek out individuals, spiritual practices, or professionals to help you find the answers you need.  It’s not a sign of weakness to seek help making right decisions, or getting through traumatic or challenging circumstances.

Libra ~ Princess/Pentacles

Messages and answers to financial issues will be forthcoming in a very timely manner.  Some of you Libras will discover previously unknown facts, or knowledge, that will benefit upcoming decisions and will also shed light on circumstances, or people, surrounding you.  Knowledge is power, the more you have, the stronger you’ll be.  There’s s solitary flair about many of you Libras, intent on personal self-discovery, with a renewed interest in old and unfinished projects.  Make your own kind of magic during this period.

Scorpio ~ 6/Pentacles

“The more the merrier” will be your mantra at this time, Scorpio.  Where before there was not enough, now you will have a surplus.  However, don’t let your guard down, don’t waste precious time or opportunities that come your way.  Continue this forward progression with right action, solid common sense, determination, and a strong work ethic.  It’s time for many Scorpios to climb the ladder to success.  We so often talk about setting goals, but we so seldom stop and relish the accomplishment of meeting those goals.  Do this, Scorpio.

Sagittarius ~ Knight/Pentacles

For some of you Sagittarians bouncing merrily through this year, you’re going to find yourself stopped short by the need for quiet practicality.  Solid common sense, thorough and slow thought processes to work through an issue, are going to assure your happiness continues through 2017.   Don’t be rushed into making any decisions.  Remember, the show can’t go on until you say it does.  The wonderful grounding aspect of this Knight will bode you well, reconnecting you to Earth energy and the solidity you need at this time.

Q&A ~ Ack! Tarot Reversals, You Didn’t Reading it the RIGHT WAY!

This is going to be a quick blog post.  The following is a comment/question left on one of my videos at my Youtube Channel.  Here’s a link ~

Organizing Your Life to Reach Goals ~ 5-30-2017

This question is from Scorpio Rising:

Do you read all cards in the spread as upright (even when turned over as reversed) in your readings? The first card was King of Pentacles reversed, but you read it as upright. I am of the understanding that a reversed card would or should render the meaning differently.

My response:

Hello, Scorpio Rising!… Sometimes reversed cards are significant, and sometimes they’re not.  You have to learn to pick up and listen to your intuition, it will let you know.  I read using the intuitive method, and I would hope that all readers eventually get to this point.  It takes you outside the box of set rigid traditional card meanings and interpretations.  If a reader can’t get past this mental box, their readings will be mechanical and repetitive, they won’t be able to really see the story, to hear what the cards (and Spirit) are trying to tell them.  I didn’t necessarily read the King of Pentacles as upright, because his more negative side was coming through, and this is how it works for me.  When this card comes up in another reading, for another client, it may present an entirely different picture, which may or may not have anything to do with the traditional meanings for this card, whether upright or reversed .  For me, tarot cards are just a trigger to poke my psychic senses and turn me in the right direction, the rest is coming from me (my mind, my brain, my intuition, wherever it is that second sight comes from).  Everyone’s psychic abilities are unique, and it works differently for every individual.

Organizing Your Life to Achieve Your Goals

Originally, this video tarot reading was posted specifically for one of my clients who purchased a video reading.  Just so you know how it works, purchased video readings are taped, edited, and uploaded anonymously at Youtube; and when all is said and done, I email my client a link to their video, which is open for public viewing.  I usually do this and don’t give it another thought.  But this video is different.  I’ve watched this video several times, and the more I’ve watched it the more a dawning realization came to me ~ the message in this video is universal.  Of course it applies directly to my client and to all the personal hurdles and obstacles, all the personal dreams, desires, and goals that encompass this individual and their unique set of circumstances; but there is so much more to it.  So many of us, myself included, can benefit by what Spirit has to say through this reading, and this set of six cards.
