Tarot Series~ Minor Arcana: Knight of Swords

63951679f53b24efd6f0ad0e2898a5bd

When pulled upright this card represents someone who is so focused on a certain idea, that they become oblivious to any difficulties; conflicts; or consequences it brings us, as they try to achieve it. This card is about someone full of life and energy but they need to make sure they are balancing themselves out with a good dose of compassion and responsibility. The person this card represents, is someone who once they have set their mind to something there is no stopping them. While this can be a great trait as it shows ambition and dedication it can also have some downfalls. Some of the things this person might be willing to do to achieve their goal could have some very serious consequences. They are likely prone to move ahead without any preparation or foresight, which can put them in a dangerous (or at the very least unpleasant) situation.

When pulled in reverse this card is about someone who is extremely impatient, impulsive, and full of energy. However unlike the person the upright card represents this person has no direction, despite their abundance in energy. This causes a lot of rash decisions which can drag others down with them. This person likely has a lot of scattered thoughts and they don’t tend to take the time to go through them and organize them. It is quite likely that they are a disorganized person. When they do finally have something they want to achieve with all that energy they have they are likely very unprepared due to this lack of organization. 

Here is a tarot spread to help you find some direction for all that energy you have. First I would take out the knight of swords and meditate on it thinking about your directionless energy that you have. Then shuffle and pull the cards 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.

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.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Ace of Swords

49a858d874f39115049d01c531570610

When pulled upright this card is about breakthroughs, just like all ace cards are. However do to this card being a sword it says that this breakthrough has more to with in intellect. So maybe you have been struggling to find the solution to a problem, this could be a breakthrough for that. It could also be a breakthrough in a situation where you were trying to determine the truth of something. It also talks about seeing the world from a new point of view and realizing you have endless opportunities. Now is a really great time to start working towards your goals. Since your conscious is clear and you are at a point of swift thinking now is a good time to seek justice and truth. It is important to remember that swords can be double-edged. So this clarity you are experiencing can be used for good or bad deeds. It is all dependent on you. It also reminds you that too much power can corrupt a person so you need to stick with your principles. 

When pulled in reverse can be saying that instead of having a mental breakthrough you could actually be very confused, unsure, and feel very chaotic. It is good to remember, that due to this, it is not a good time to be making any decisions, since those choices won’t be backed with a clear mind. Now is a better time to prepare yourself for what is to come and take baby steps towards it. Now is the time to take yourself through each and every stage of what you want to accomplish and really create some sort of plan, rather than acting spontaneously. It would also be good to ask for advice because everything may not be as it seems. 

Here is a tarot spread that may help you achieve your mental breakthrough. First I would take the ace of swords out of the deck and mediate on it while really trying to clear your mind of any chaos and confusion. Then shuffle the cards and pull using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Seven of Wands

download.jpg

When pulled upright this card is about experiencing a struggle. Unlike the five of wands (which is about getting through a struggle to reach your goal) this card is about getting through a struggle to maintain your goal. This is about all the difficulties we have to go through to keep our success going. Be prepared to have to fight to keep your position and prove yourself. The general meaning of this card is that you need to stand your ground no matter the costs. You need to fight for what your believe and what you want.

When pulled in reverse this card is about you possibly feeling overwhelmed by all the responsibilities you have as well as any challenges you may be facing. This card talks about the fact that you may not be seeing the whole picture and that you may be comparing yourself to others. This card could also be talking about how you are feeling judged lately. Everyone seems to be questioning your decisions and it is making you feel overwhelmed. This card when upside down is saying that you are doing everything it tells you not to do when upright. It is saying that instead of fighting for what you want and what you believe in, you are just throwing the towel in. Remember what work you’ve put in to get where you are and really think about whether it is something you are willing to give up. Another interpretation of this card is that you may be too aggressive when you are fighting for what you want and it may be damaging your relationships. 

Here is a tarot spread to help you get through your struggles and maintain your goals. First take the seven of wands out of your deck and mediate on it. While you meditate focus on what success you are trying to maintain. Then shuffle your cards and pull them using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Six of Wands

33c344834aacfe8a99fb82a8695a8bb4

When pulled upright this card is about accomplishing something that is giving you public recognition. You have reached your goals and you are being celebrated for it. You may have received an award as well. This card shows that you have found your strengths and how to use them to manifest the outcomes you want in life. The card before this (the five of wands) is a card about confusion. Pulling the 6 of wands shows that you have gotten past this confusion and have managed to achieve your goals. Although this card is mostly positive it is worth noting that a downside to this card could be that all this success is bringing self-importance, a large ego, and arrogance.

When pulled in reverse this card is about doubting your abilities and your abilities to reach your goals as a whole. You might be feeling negative about yourself because not only have you been failing yourself but you have been failing others This is telling you that you are lacking the confidence and ambition you need to achieve your goals. In order to reach your goals you need support from those around you to give you the recognition you need.

Here is a tarot spread to help you gain confidence in yourself so you can better achieve your goals. Take the 6 of wands out of the deck and meditate on your self doubts becoming your strengths. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Four of Wands

bd00ecaaef0404ece2bf07acee775c8c

When pulled upright this card is about celebration. It is also about a happy home environment. The number 4 is a sign of stability. This card also says that is is now a good time to get closer with your family and friends. This card could be about a time in the holiday’s when you’re surrounded by your loved ones. On the other hand if you’ve been working on a goal or a project a big milestone is coming up. You are going to want to celebrate this and you are more than justified to do so.

When pulled in reverse this card is about there being a lack of stability or happiness in your home environment. There is probably a lot of tension between you and your loved ones. Maybe you have accomplished something and expect your loved ones to want to celebrate with you. Instead you come home to a complete lack of support. This is likely causing you to feel uncertain about your relationships and is making you wonder who you can really count on.

Below is a spread to help you celebrate your accomplishments. First I would take out the four of wands and meditate with it. While you meditate think of your accomplishments and all the reasons you have to celebrate. Then shuffle the cards and pull them as you see fit.

When pulled upright this card is about planning and moving forward. It is about progressing. You’ve already made a plan and now it is time to start achieving what you’ve planned for. Another meaning of the two of wands is discovery. You are stepping out of your bubble and experiencing new things. This card can also mean you are starting to realize your long-term goals. This card can also revolve around making decisions. You are either happy with the knowledge you have or you’re moving forward and taking risks. This is about leaving your comfort zone and exploring new things.

When pulled in reverse this card is about you need to make some long term goals. Identify what is important to you and then make plans around it to achieve your goals. This card can also means you have missing important parts in your plans for the future. Not planning properly could be the cause of your downfall. This card can also be overconfidence and lack of patience.

Here is a tarot spread that should help you reach your goals. Take out the two of wands and focus on it as your meditate. While you meditate think about what goals you want to complete. After this you can shuffle and pull the cards as you see fit.
