Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Six of Swords

db1a6adf39a435a8e6c690205c6399d3

When pulled upright this card is about having to make a regrettable transition in your life. This transition is likely happening due to a decision you made in the past which is now forcing you to leave something behind as you move forward. Despite the fact that this is bringing a great deal of sadness you need to remember that given the circumstances this is the best possible outcome. This card reminds you that life is full of times where you have to let go of things you’ve become accustomed to. This isn’t going to be easy but remember that this sadness is only temporary. Look forward to your future and gain strength from its possibilities. Sometimes you can’t fix what’s broken. The only thing you can do it leave the issue and start new. You may find yourself thinking that this seems cowardly but sometimes it’s the only thing that can be done when you’ve tried to make it work using every other method. Now you need to start planning your path to a happier future. Due to it being a swords card it is telling you to make these plans with logic, clarity, and objectively to know where you’ve been, where you are now, and where you want to go.

When pulled in reverse this card is about how you’ve been actively trying to make this transition and move on however you may find that making this transition is quite challenging. You may find yourself reliving your past due to unresolved issues, or maybe because you are second guessing your decisions. Another meaning of this card could be that you are actually resisting these transitions. You may feel forced into doing things that you aren’t ready for or that you don’t want to do at all. Take a second to think about the possible benefits of these transitions and not just their negatives.

Here is a tarot spread to help you embrace the transitions that are happening in your life. First I would take the six of swords of the deck and meditate on it while thinking about the transitions that are starting to take form in your life. Then shuffle and pull using your preferred method.

Weekly Tarot Reading: Let Your Soul Shine (Summer Solstice spread)

Hi everyone! I thought since Friday is going to be Litha we would do a little tarot spread that embodies the holiday. This spread is going to give you some insight on how you can be the best you you can be this summer.

792790b627fe0e65c9edb72b58855a83
The Tarot Spread

I actually enjoyed this spread so much that I was compelled to do it for my partner too. I have pulled the cards already but am writing this before I get the chance to really analyze the cards and get his message. I’m very excited.

img_20190618_192812
These are the cards I pulled for myself

Card 1: You as you are now (knight of cups reversed)

This card essentially was telling me that I allow my emotions to control my life more than I should. That I am overly jealous, emotional, and/or moody. I also jump to conclusions too fast.

I can definitely say that all of the above is true and it is something I really am trying to work on but I am not sure how honestly.

Card 2: What’s keeping you from being your best? (Ace of wands reversed)

This card talks a lot about going through trials and tribulations. That I feel I have no direction which is causing a lack of inspiration and motivation. Essentially I am just in a slump. I don’t seem to be excited to reach my goals and I am feeling weighed down by current commitments and responsibilities.

As you all know my life has just been bonkers lately and it still hasn’t stopped being bonkers. More and more things keep coming up. So that part seems pretty true. My lack of inspiration and motivation is actually so extreme that is seems to cause problems in my relationship with my partner. Honestly it is a mental health issue that I know needs fixed but once again I don’t know how. As for feeling weighed down by commitments and responsibilities it is a double edged sword. I work all day, then I come home and I am either, editing videos, uploading videos, or writing blog posts. I do a lot and it is super exhausting. However I am so proud of myself and what I have accomplished with this blog and my channel in such a short amount of time and I really don’t what to stop. So I need to learn how to balance out my schedule better.

Card 3: How to overcome it (The lovers)

Essentially this card to me was telling me to let my partner take care of me more. Sure I tell him what is upsetting me and I talk to him about stuff. But I very rarely let him see me breakdown. And especially these last 2-3 months I’ve totally broken down a lot and he’s seen me do that maybe once or twice. I don’t like to let him see me a mess or anyone else for that matter. However this card serves as a reminder to me that he can handle the mess that is me. And by me not letting him fulling in to what I am experiencing emotionally I am hindering myself.

Card 4: How you can work towards your goals (Ten of Pentacles)

I am very bad at making long term goals. I like immediate satisfaction and anything that doesn’t provide that I often drop. That is one reason why my partner is so surprised that I am still writing this blog. I have not become a superstar overnight and am still nowhere close to achieving that stardom. To go along with that most of my goals that I have for my blog and my channel are short term goals since I do enjoy that instant gratification. For instance I made a goal for the month of June to get 50 subscribers on my youtube channel. When I made this goal I already had 49 subscribers. I now have 53 subscribers which is obviously surpassed my very easy goals. I get nervous to make long term goals as I am afraid I will never accomplish them and in the end let myself (and possibly others) down. However this card is telling me I need to do just that. More of my goals will be met if I actually set those long term goals I fear.

Card 5: How you can care for yourself (Two of Swords reversed)

I have this tendency of getting into these stalemate like situations where I just need to make a choice but neither seem good so I just don’t chose. I like to think that if I pretend the issue doesn’t exist that it’ll go away. Newsflash! The situation doesn’t go away. Surprising right? This card is telling me to simply start making choices so my stress can go away.

Card 6: How you can care for others (Seven of wands reversed)

As I kinda said early when talking about my partner, I need to start letting my walls down. I tend to come across as aggressive when I am protecting myself and it damages my relationships with others. This card seems to be saying once I take care of myself, let myself be more vulnerable and learn to protect myself less aggressively, caring for others should fall into place naturally.

Card 7: How you can care for the world (Four of Pentacles)

This card is one I had a hard time interpreting today. From what I could gather it is reminding me not to become to materialistic. It also seems to be saying that in order to care for the world I need to take more risks.

 

This is all I have today! Let me know what you think of this spread, along with anything you think I missed, any other thoughts, or questions you have down below.

Weekly Tarot Series: Grief Tarot Spread

Hi everyone, if you’ve read last weeks post you’ll know that I’ve been having a very hard month or two. If you follow me on twitter you will also know that my Nan passed away Wednesday afternoon. I wanted to find a way to continue my coping but also be delivering you content. Since this is Tarot Friday I thought instead of doing the next tarot card in the series I would do a tarot spread that may help you if you are going through a time of grief.

Grief-Tarot-Spread-1

Here is the tarot spread I chose to do. I found this super helpful and really brought me some peace.

img_20190524_201529
The cards I pulled

Card #1: Represents myself internally right now (Queen of Wands)

So this card actually surprised me. This placement is supposed to be about how I am doing internally right now. I assumed it would just tell me I’m miserable but instead it focused on how I am extremely focused, courageous, determined, and still doing my best to be positive, uplifting, and joyful.

Card #2: Represents the deceased (Five of Wands)

At first I didn’t quite understand what this card was telling me but then I realized it was saying that Nan had worked through her troubles and she did not have any more issues to worry about. It really just confirmed for me that she is at peace finally.

Card #3: Represents the relationship between you and the deceased (The Hanged Man)

Once again this is another card I had a hard time interpreting given what it was supposed to represent. Still don’t feel totally confident in my interpretation so if someone understands it a bit more feel free to let me know down below. Essentially what I gathered was that our relationship in the physical world had to be sacrificed in order to move forward. So her death was necessary (and the way it happened specifically) for me to be able to move on.

Card #4: A lesson the deceased has taught you (Justice)

This card says that Nan taught me firstly that decisions have long-term effects. But also that truth is essential in all things — one must learn the truth about others and yourself and one must speak and know the truth before judging others.

Card #5: Something that will help me move on (five of pentacles)

What I did with this card was a little different than how I normally read a card. I used the upright version of it (as I pulled it upright) to determine how I was feeling and then I used the reverse meaning to determine what will help me move on from those feelings. So the card said I was in a time of hardship. It also said I was feeling cursed and as though I had bad luck and I have actually said this out loud to my coworkers, so it really struck home. However how I will move on is that to recognize that brightness is coming into my life, that change is coming soon, and the worst is now over.

Card #6: How can I connect with the deceased going forward (Knight of Cups)

Pulling this card was really cool because the knight of cups actually acts as a messengers. And despite how cliche it sounds this card seems to be saying that I can connect with her by listening to my heart and trusting my intuition.

Card #7: A Message from the deceased (Ace of Wands)

This was a really nice message to receive from her and once again made me feel really at peace. Her message was to be creative and bold. To find and use my own voice. Also to follow my instincts and just go for it.

All in all this is a really great tarot spread that I would thoroughly recommend you use if you are struggling and going through a hard time. It has brought me a significant amount of peace. However that is all for today. Let me know if this spread was as helpful to you as it was for me down below in the comments, along with anything you think I missed, questions, or thoughts. Make sure you follow me here and on twitter so you get notifications when I post and when I upload to videos to youtube. And until next time, Blessed Be!

 

Weekly Tarot Series: Starseed Identity Spread

So for the last week and a half I have been doing a lot of research in Alien races. As you may know, if you follow my posts/videos, is that I am a starseed. As someone who is a starseed my soul originates from a different planet. So I have been trying to find out the planet/system my soul comes from. Something I found while doing my research was this tarot spread. So I thought some of you who are also starseeds mat benefit from this. Also, something I thought seemed important to me as I was doing this reading was that 6/10 cards were associated the with the element air.

eebb93b25949621071ec326f1c671e0518d8a0efr1-400-527v2_hq
Here is the spread I used

1) What is the primary elemental/spiritual or physical attribute of the world I originated from?

2) What are their core beliefs?

3) What are their goals as a world in regards to the universal mission and state of being?

4)What is unique about my world?

5) Why did I decide to incarnate on earth?

6) What do i seek to achieve in this incarnation?

7) What lesson am I learning in this life that carried on from my last life?

8) What behaviors should I avoid in this life that could hinder my goal?

9) What behaviors should I adapt to aid my development in this life?

10) What message does my star family have for me today?

b8d23df122e4ddf6c320c17810a0e70d593f5728r1-1536-2048v2_hq
The cards I pulled

Card 1: primary elemental/spiritual or physical attribute of the world. (Two of swords reversed)

Essentially it seems like there were to races having a war and my race were the ones mediating. There didn’t seem to be a true right side and wrong side and the whole thing was more grey than black or white.

Card 2: what are their beliefs (the lovers)

They believe in partnership, unity, duality, harmony, trust, and the freedom of choice.

Card 3: what are their goals as a world in regard to the universal mission and state of being (four of wands reversed)

Their goals are to bring harmony and to help those races who hold tension towards one another.

Card 4: what is unique about my world? (Five of swords)

They engage in a lot of conflicts, thought they won or made the right choice but it seems like they possibly didn’t. They seem to be more isolated and are overly ambitious.

Card 5: Why did I incarnate on earth? (Ten of pentacles reversed)

I saw earth’s lack of stability and resources and wanted to help.

Card 6: what do I seek to achieve this incarnation? (Queen of cups)

To connect with others on an emotional level. To teach and support others using intuition.

Card 7: what lesson am I learning in this life that carried on from my last life? (7 of swords)

Sometimes we have to deal with consequences. Being deceptive when you’ve done something wrong isn’t the best idea and it’s better to come clean.

Card 8: what behaviours should I avoid in this life that could hinder my goal? (Eight of pentacles)

Lack of passion, motivation, and being uninspired

Card 9: what behaviours should I adapt to aid my development in this life? (Ten of swords)

Learn to use my fear and anxiety to motivate me. When I’m stuck in a poor me mentality to remember the end means a new beginning.

Card 10: what message does my star family have for me today (King of swords reversed)

Remember to always stay humble when it comes to your intellect. Do not succumb to selfish desire.

So from what I can tell from this reading is that I am connected to the Orion system. Something else that I have done is I got my birth chart read by someone who is able to interpret that and tell where people’s souls are originated from. So I did this (it only cost like $2 and I’ll leave the link here) and she told me that my soul has been around on 3 planets (other than earth) however the one I originate from is Andromeda. This to me suggests that although I originated there I didn’t necessarily stay there long or at least it didn’t have a long lasting impact on me. I also feel that I am connected to the Feline race. Something she did tell me is that I am a crystal child which I previously knew about and was glad she confirmed it for me. She offers a service to tell you all the planets you’ve been and much much more for around $30 and it is something I plan to do in the near future.

That’s all for today’s video! I hope you enjoyed. If you do this spread and/or decide to get your birth chart read I’d love to hear about your results!

Weekly Tarot Spread: Get to Know Yourself Better

Hi everyone! I hope you’re excited for Tarot readings to start again because I sure am! So as some of you may know I went through a temporary breakup last week and it made me realize that outside of my relationship I really don’t know who I am. So this week I thought it would be fun to do a tarot spread helping me figure out who I am. Next week we will recommence the chakra tarot spreads we were doing earlier this summer/spring. Also sorry for posting this so late. I did this reading this evening and it ended up hitting home so hard I just needed a long break from it before I could go over it again and type it up.  Lastly, this reading doesn’t have a picture to go with spread so I will try my best to show you the set up. Bear with me (the 5th card is supposed to be directly under the 4)

Card set up

Card 1   Card 9

Card 2  Card 8

Card 3  Card 7

Card 4  Card 6

Card 5

So I am not entirely sure what I expected to learn from this reading but it seems to be very much about the break up and the reading itself has come out a bit bleak in relation to us trying to make it work. So I am really hoping if I altar my path we can change the prediction of the cards.

41518535_1032971926883554_6008060391223984128_n
The cards I pulled

As you can see I pulled mostly reversed cards and mostly major arcana cards.

Card 1: How people perceive you

I pulled the lovers in reverse. This firstly is important because the lovers is my signifier card. And second it seems very relevant to the break up and most of my family and a lot of my friends knew about it. This card pretty much says that they perceive me as having a lot of inner conflict and disharmony. They see my break in communication and they see the foundation of my relationship being cut off. Overall the affects of the break up are very obvious and all people see when looking at me is the effects of the break up.

Card 2: What you think you are

I pulled the empress in reverse. This card talks about losing willpower and strength. It really shows how I overwhelm others with my caring for them but at the same time I still depend on others (my boyfriend) to care for me. It also talks about neglecting my own needs. I think this whole break up has really shown me how much I depend on my partner and now they we are back together I may be neglecting my own needs as I am worried he will leave me again.

Card 3: What you think you aren’t

For this card I pulled the queen of swords reversed. The queen of swords when reversed is thought to be bitter, coldhearted, and resentful. And I full heartedly agree that I don’t think I am those things. I think I am the exact opposite actually.

Card 4: What you don’t know about yourself

This was the card that shook me up the most. I got the tower in reverse. This card is about a looming crisis that I am avoiding. This crisis has to happen though and what I have been relying on will no longer be there for me. To me it just really sounds like that even though we are back together now, it won’t last and I am just prolonging the pain. I really hope I can change this though.

Card 5: Your true self

This was the card that confused me the most. I pulled the Ace of pentacles in reverse. This card talks about missing your chance. So I don’t know if this really says who my true self is but it feels to me to be saying the break up was my chance and I missed it.

Card 6: What you can do now to be a better person

This card was the emperor. The emperor is about control, organization, having a plan, acting rationally, growing my goals, and being both methodical and strategic. I think this card is saying is if I have any chance of growing from this blip in our relationship rather than just everything falling apart I have to come up with a solid plan and follow it through like the emperor would.

Card 7: What you should stop doing right now

I pulled the six of cups. This card says that I need to stop wanting to return to a happier time and to stop looking to the past to try and solve the crisis.  It seems to be saying it is time to move on from the relationship and to go on to better things.

Card 8: What can you do to realize hidden aspects about yourself

I pulled the Judgement card in reverse for this one. It says that I need to stop judging myself so harshly, to move forward with pride and confidence, and to reflect on my life up until this point. In general I have always been my worst critic and I have been feeling guilty for the reasons behind the break up. So I think this is just saying that what has happened is done and there is no sense in beating myself up. All I can do is look back and what is in the past and better myself from here on out.

Card 9: summary

For this I pulled the Justice card. This card pretty much says my decisions effect myself and others long term, that the truth will come to pass, and that it is time to come to a solution once and for all. So pretty much despite all this horrible stuff everything will turn out how it is meant to and for all this to be over we need to come to a solution sooner than later.

Well that’s it for my reading today. Sorry it is so grim. If anyone got something more positive out of this reading than me please let me know in the comments, along with any other thoughts or question, because I’m obviously not thrilled about my interpretation about it. Also, make sure you follow me here and on twitter to get notification on when I post and to keep up to date on an upcoming giveaway. Until next time, Merry Meet and Blessed Be.

Weekly Tarot Spread: Balancing and Cleansing the Solar Plexus Chakra

So today we are doing a reading on our solar plexus chakras. The last 2 weeks we did the root chakra and the sacral chakra. All have been really great readings and I’m just as happy with this one!

15ee9838ff19c39b676a75f5b0abc43b
Spread I used

My favourite part of all three of these chakra spreads is how uplifting the final pulled card is. All of the cards speak and beautiful results that I am so excited to experience.

35123941_1739693066119315_7489652090608812032_n
Cards I pulled

Card to represent of solar plexus chakra: Three of Swords

My solar plexus chakra gets left out in the open, unguarded, unbalanced, ungrounded. This leaves it open to attack. The vulnerability of my solar plexus chakra has left me hurt physically, mentally, and spiritually. It’s main damage being mentally.

How I can better use my logic: Eight of wands

I am going to have rapid action and quick decisions coming up. I will need to use my logic and creativity together to achieve the best results.

A way I can be more proactive: Nine of Cups Reversed

I need to think more carefully about what I really want from life. I also need to focus on my relationships with family, friends, and the community. Once I find my inner joy and build these relationships I will naturally become more proactive.

Good way to balance this chakra: Two of Cups

I need to find trust in my relationships with the divine and my partner. For my partner will fill my empty cup and the goddess will walk my path along with me.

Result of balancing this chakra: The Ace of Swords

When I balance this chakra I will have a breakthrough. I’ll find the truth and see the world from a whole new view. This will open up so many possibilities and opportunities for me.

I hope you found this interesting! If you think I missed anything, have any thoughts, or have any questions make sure to leave them in the comments. Also be sure to subscribe to me on my blog and on twitter so you get notifications when I post. Until next time, Merry Meet and Blessed Be.

Weekly Tarot Spread: Balancing and Clearing the Sacral Chakra

So last week I did the reading on my root chakra and today I did my reading for my sacral chakra. If you haven’t checked out the reading for my root chakra then I’ll firstly say, you should check it out. Also, I am doing the chakra readings as a follow up to me learning my reiki 1 and 2 placements.

594e2f7d082dd9807ba642294359d9d7
Tarot spread I used

One thing I have noticed is the more and more I do the readings, the more and more I am able to intuitively read the cards. My only struggle I’m having is cards that don’t show up often for me in readings and when they are reversed. I’m getting better though and I’m so excited about it!

35482287_1727180744037214_3344571323513831424_n
What I pulled

Card to represent my sacral ckakra: Eight of Swords

My sacral chakra is blocked. I have swords all around me but I can’t reach due to being tied up. This all is to say I have the tools to open my sacral chakra but I’ve been unable to find and grasp them. Due to the card being a sword the reason I can’t reach the tools seems to be a mental issue rather than not being able to physically get the tools.

How to better channel my creative energy: Death

Like last week to reach my full potential I need to let the old me (the me that doesn’t doesn’t believe in herself and is too caught up in what others think) die and birth a new me. A me with confidence and happiness. When I do this I will find the creative energy I lack

Practical way I can deepen my relationships: Knight of Pentacles Reversed

When in reverse this card is about routine, being bored, and needing a change in scenery. This means for me that I can deepen my relationships by being spontaneous and changing things up. I’m lacking a social life because I’m so focused on school or work.

A good way for me to balance this chakra: Three of Wands reversed

The three of wands talks about going on a personal journey but not receiving the achievements you were hoping for due to delays or road blocks, But instead of giving up I need to keep working on my self journey because eventually I will get there and when I do, my sacral chakra will be balanced.

Result of balancing this chakra: The World

This card talks of a great unity and wholeness. It symbolizes the moment the inner and outer worlds (self and other) become a single entity. It talks about reaching enlightenment and all efforts are paying off. This is saying when my sacral chakra opens I will find enlightenment and I will feel complete and whole.

Lastly, as we now major arcana cards represent great importance which means creativity and the results of my sacral chakra being balanced are most important and these two cards are both directly effecting the state of my sacral chakra in this moment.

I hope you found this interesting! If you think I missed anything, have any thoughts or questions make sure to leave them in the comments. Also be sure to subscribe to me on the website and on twitter so you get notifications when I post. Until next time, Merry Meet and Blessed Be.

Weekly Tarot Spread: Balancing and Clearing the Root Chakra

Hello everyone. Sorry for the late post but I did explain the situation on my twitter account, so if you want to keep up to date on posts make sure to follow me there.

This last weekend I earned my level 1 and 2 Holy Fire Reiki Practitioner certificate so I thought it would be fun for the next seven weeks to do readings on how to take care of each of our chakras. As one always should I am starting from the top and making my way up.

c0cd041d2cd240a6b839da57363290f1
The spread I did

I think this spread is super interested because some of the cards I very intuitively knew. I find a lot of the time I go by the book and find the key ideas and use my intuition to feel how it applies but for a few of these cards I could just look at the cards and knew what it was about. Also I think the fact that I have my reiki now really influenced the answers I got from this spread.

35050942_1719113424843946_7287474656997539840_n
The cards I pulled

As soon as I pulled these cards I could just feel this was a very powerful and meaningful reading for me.

Card to represent my root chakra: Death

So normally this card strikes fear into those that see it but personally this card always makes me feel excited. This card rather about a physical death often represents the end of one path and the start of a new one. I feel this card is strongly connected to the fact that I can now do reiki on myself. It says that my root chakra is going to start a major change/transition (now that I know how to heal with reiki). That the old me needs to die and it’s time for me to be awakened.

My current sense of security: Nine of Swords

So as we know swords talks of a mental or communication issue. Nines are about humanitarianism, universal compassion, and tolerance for the differences in others. So for me I think this says I take security in my compassion, values, and morals. I feel secure in the way I treat others. I’m most secure in my mind where I decide my morals and values.

How to feel grounded: Three of Swords

I feel like in this card it talks about communication issues. I would feel more grounded if I felt with my heard less and more with my soul. I feel my emotions without listening to the earth. If I communicate better with the earth and my soul I would feel a lot more grounded.

Good way to balance this chakra: The Lovers

So firstly as we learned last week, this card if my signifier (the card in the deck that represents me). This to me says it is the most important card to read. It also in the middle of all the cards which to me says that firstly balancing my root chakra is key to how the rest of the cards play out. It also says that since this card is close to all of the cards rather than just some that this entire spread is really important and will likely form how the rest of my chakras align as well. The lovers card is about harmony and unity. SO in order to balance my root chakra I need to find this harmony. I think feeling at home anywhere my partner and I are together is important too.

Result of balancing this chakra: Page of Cups Reversed

This card when reversed means a block in creativity. It also talks of a lack of inspiration, low self-worth, and being easily depressed. So to me this is saying when my root chakra gets balanced all this will be fixed.

I hope you found this interesting! If you think I missed anything, have any thoughts or questions make sure to leave them in the comments. Also be sure to subscribe to me on the website and on twitter so you get notifications when I post. Until next time, Merry Meet and Blessed Be.

Weekly Tarot Spread: Finding your Signifier

Hello everyone, so today I thought I would do something a little different. This isn’t exactly a spread but it is answering a question while using the tarot cards. There will be a lot of pictures in this post so you can see the process I did.

c5fd41b3d847f594484a3c11d467f2dc.jpg
The process I used

So I started with the original shuffling as it said. I thought about how I am funny, nurturing, goal oriented etc.

34138210_1710506089038013_7188685736265121792_n
I cut the deck like so 

I was pretty near instantly drawn to the right deck. So I put the left deck aside and shuffled again thinking about my weaknesses. I thought about my anxiety, my anger, lack of patience, etc.

34316518_1710504805704808_1033528358740164608_n
I cut the deck in thirds

Once again my hand was drawn to the deck on the right. So I put the other two decks aside. I spread the cards out and my hand was drawn just to right of the centre. My hands feel on 4 cards.

34318294_1710506129038009_2817572398138654720_n
4 new piles (one card in each)

I then closed my eyes and thought about how I wanted to do magick to heal, bring prosperity, happiness, and for love. My hand was then drawn to the top two cards.

34449003_1710505855704703_7367437610790158336_n
Last 2 cards

Now I closed my eyes and asked my signifier card to present itself and my hand was drawn to the left card.

My signifier card is The Lovers

In order to understand what this card meant for me I referred to this picture.

So first of all my card is a Major Arcana card. So apparently my path is pretty much carved in stone. Also the strengths and the weaknesses of this card are what I will deal with for this entire lifetime. For imagery  it suggested to look at the book the deck came with but it didn’t click with me so I looked at Labyrinthos instead and clicked with it a lot better. So I will do a copy and paste from that website.

The primary meaning within the Lovers is harmony, attractiveness, and perfection in a relationship. The trust and the unity that the lovers have gives each of them confidence and strength, empowering the other. The bond that they have created is very strong, and it can indicate that the two are joined in marriage, and other close and intimate relationships. Another meaning behind the lovers card is the concept of choice – a choice between things that are opposing and mutually exclusive. This could be a dilemma that you need to think about carefully and make the best decision for your situation.
A more personal Lovers meaning that can apply to individuals is the development of your own personal belief systems, regardless of what are the societal norms. We see this as a development from the Hierophant, who made decrees and passed on his knowledge through a standardized system. This is one of the times when you figure out what you are going to stand for, and what your philosophy in life will truly be. You must start making up your mind about what you find important and unimportant in your life. You should be as true to yourself as you can be, so you will be genuine and authentic to the people who are around you.

One other thing I find interesting about this card is that it is associated with the astrology sign Gemini which also happens to be my partners sign.

All in all I thought this was a really cool reading and hope this new information will help me decipher readings better in the future.

I hope you found this as interesting as I did and get some use out of this “spread”. As always if you have any thoughts or questions leave them in the comments. Make sure you subscribe so you get a notification every time I post. Until next time, Merry Meet and Blessed Be.

Weekly Tarot Spread: Exploring Past Lives

In the last year or so I’ve been really interested in my past lives when I learned a little about them when I was getting some soul healing done with my Shaman. Ever since I have wanted to do hypnosis to find out about my past lives but alas that opportunity hasn’t made itself available yet. So in the meantime I thought this might be a fun spread to try out.

The spread I did

I think this reading is quite interesting. I previously knew about one past life where I died giving birth. And as you will find out this seems to be another past life where I don’t make it to be of the age to be a mother. Maybe this lack of experience in my past lives fuel my extreme desire to be a mother in this life.

Cards I pulled

Card to describe me in my past life: Queen of Swords reversed.

This card normally talks about having the mentality of leadership. Having developed skills and wisdom through years of experience. There is mention of maturity, being a capable woman, an authority figure who is nurturing and understanding. She represents a mother figure. This card is in reverse though and therefore seems to talk of a Maiden who is dependent on others and lacks life experience. She isn’t mentally matured yet.

My purpose during that lifetime: Eight of Pentacles reversed

This card is about having worldly power and influence, being a leader and having authority. It talks of organizational and managerial skills, honour, respect, equality, awards, pubic recognition, power, and abundance in all areas of life. Because I pulled this card in reverse I think it means I was suppose to become a leader of worldly influence but it never ended up happening.

A lesson I did not complete in that lifetime: The Fool

So firstly as we know this is a Major Arcana card and therefore is important for me to know. This card says I never learned to trust blindly and to take big risks. In order for my purpose to have been fulfilled I needed to make the jump but I never did.

How is that life relevant to my current life: Page of Swords

This card says it is relevant because I need to prepare myself in this life to succeed in what I didn’t in my previous life. I have to be willing to do whatever it takes: start at the bottom of the ladder and take risks to make it to the top.
