Today’s reading #tarot

To bed at midnight & awake, fitfully, from about 5:30am, up an hour later. First project of Saturday after this? Tanning!

I’ve seen all of these recently.

Card 1, within: Page of Cups

Last seen in this same position on May 29th, just six days ago.

Introduction: When the Page of Cups appears, it’s a signal to allow the childlike side of yourself to come forward. Like most of the Cups suit, the Page is an uplifting and encouraging sign to receive in a tarot reading. It also can indicate that someone – likely someone who is younger than you, is coming your way before long with a message for you.

General: In general, this card shows a need to play, to dream, to have a little fun. When this card appears, it sometimes means that you’ve been taking yourself far too seriously. Margot Fonteyn said “The one important thing I have learned over the years is the difference between taking one’s work seriously and taking one’s self seriously. The first is imperative and the second is disastrous.” Know the difference.

Work: Even if things have been lousy in your job for the last ten years, the appearance of this card shows that there is cause for hope and positive anticipation. No matter who you are, you have professional options. Life can change on a dime, and sometimes those changes are positive. If you’re unhappy in your current work, know that you hold the key to changing it.

This is the card of getting to know the familiarity of love all over again.

Card 2, without: 3 of Swords

Last seen in the 3rd position on May 29th.

General: In general, this card can point to very deep emotional issues that must be addressed before the querent can move on. Denying pain does not make it go away. Allow yourself to experience any pain that comes up now, but do not wallow in it. You do not and should not wallow in grief or sorrow for long.

Spirituality: This is not a time to try to hold on to things, ideas, situations, or people which may have run their course in your life. You must make room in your life/heart/emotions/spirit for new things to come to you. Time alone will be helpful. Have you done all the healing that you need to do? The answers you seek are within you, although you may need help to bring them to the surface. Talk with someone you trust.

What does it mean to see this card when you are feeling stable and emotionally satisfied? The Three of Swords indicates that you may be oblivious to the cruelty you are inflicting on someone. The Three of Swords is demanding that you take a deep personal inventory of all aspects of your daily behavior that could be causing pain to others directly from your unintentional actions.

Hmmm…. If I feel bad things today, in any case, the 3rd card tells me I should just relax, hang out in a tree.

Card 3, advice: XII The Hanged Man

Also last seen in this same position on May 29th, just six days ago.

Introduction: The Hanged Man generally shows that you are at a crossroads – one with only two options i.e. in or out, up or down, yes or no. You may find yourself very much wanting to do “something” but having no idea what it is or how to do it. If that happens, that’s a clear sign that you should stop, relax, and look at ways that you might need to let go of attempts to control life/situations/people/things.

General: It’s possible that there is an outdated attitude or wish that you need to let go of. Any sacrifice that you make will open up your life to something even more positive than what you “let go of.” All in all this should be a thoughtful, reflective time, particularly if you are willing to look at if or how you might best serve your own interests by being willing to change.

Work: Nothing much may seem to be happening, and you may well be sick of it. This is a great time to figure out if there is anything that you personally can do about it, if this is the case, and if there is not an action that you can take, then try not to take the slowness of the wheels of change personally. Things will change. It just may not happen on your timetable. Relax, or else look for different work.

Spirituality: It’s crucial now to let go of any negative, self-limiting beliefs. Remember the idea of the “self-fulfilling prophesy” and be very careful about what you allow yourself to say or think about our life. Make sure the “prophecies” you are making about your life bear some resemblance to the life you really wish to see.

  1. I was wondering why the cards seemed so negative when I’d woken up in a really good mood, despite not sleeping much. Things became clear later! They WERE still accurate, and I’d doubted them.
