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.

I hope you found this reading interesting! If you see anything you think I missed or have any thoughts/questions feel free to leave it in the comments. Also, make sure to subscribe so you get notifications when I post. Until next time, Merry Meet and Blessed Be!

Tarot Series~Major Arcana Card 3: The Empress

48dcdb3297c913ace88a48eb990c6d08

When pulled upright the card shows a deep connection to our femininity. This can be shown through fertility, creativity, expression, and nurturing among others. The card asks you to connect with beauty and to bring happiness into your life. Be kind to yourself and take care of yourself. As one can tell from the picture this card can be a strong indication of pregnancy or motherhood. It can also mean the birth of a new idea, business, or project in your life. These endeavors will end successfully. The empress is the archetype of mother earth and therefore says you should spend time in nature.

When pulled reversed this card means you have lost too much willpower and strength because you have been too focused on other people’s affairs. Normally this card is about showering loved ones with love and care but when reversed it means you could be going overboard. You might be neglecting your needs or smothering your loved ones. This card can also mean you are relying on others to make decisions for you and to take card of you. 

This is a tarot spread that focuses on the empress. It’s good if you have issues with friends or family as it helps you figure out your relationships with those around you. First I suggest taking the empress card out of your deck and mediating on whatever issue you’re having with the people in your life. Then shuffle the cards and pull the cards using your preferred method.
