Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Two of Pentacles

download (5)

When pulled upright this card is about balance. It seems like right now money may be a bit tight but you’ve found a way to balance it out. However you are teetering the edge and one wrong financial decision could ruin that balance. This balance could also be about trying to keep two aspects of your life in balance. It could be anything, your job, school, money, health, love, etc. Regardless this card is saying there are two aspects that you are extremely concerned about. You need to step back from the situation and gain a better perspective. Multitasking seems likes the most efficient course of action but in reality it will just make the situation worse. Take the time to really focus on what it is you’re concerned about. When it comes to the subject of love this card is suggesting that you don’t have the time or energy needed to invest in your partner to make them happy. Your relationship with your partner should be at the top of your priority list but given the stress you’ve been in by keeping everything in balance they have been put to the side a bit. When it comes to your finances this card is saying you need to make sure you are completely aware of the state it is in. Take this time to really watch what you’re spending and secure a steady stream of income so you can make a good foundation for your future. And when it comes to your health this card is reminding you to do some self care. When you have a lot of responsibilities it is easy to stop considering your own needs and wants  but you need to try and find a balance.

When pulled in reverse this card is saying you have too many things you’re trying to do in your life right now. Give yourself a little responsibility free break to de-stress. When it comes to work getting this card in reverse can be a good sign. Try not to commit yourself to a lot of things as it will likely overwhelm you. When it comes to finances this card can suggest that you might be overspending. You really need to think about your income and where it is all being spent as overspending can cause issues in the future.

Here is a tarot spread to help you achieve balance in your life. First I would take the card out and meditate on it thinking about what aspect(s) of your life could use some more balance. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

When pulled upright this card is about new beginnings, just like all ace cards. Due to this card being a pentacles card it could be a new career, a new venture, a start to a health journey. Regardless of the new beginning, pulling this card upright means the outcome of it will bring your abundance and opportunity. This card also represents that a “seed” (an idea, a goal, a thought, etc) has been planted when it comes to the material world. It likely has to do with your feeling of security and stability. You need to nurture it and help it grow. You need to give it your time, your energy, sometimes you need to invest in it financially. Helping this seed manifest will bring you prosperity. Along with all this you need to make sure you are prepared psychologically for the opportunities coming your way. To ensure that you can reap all the benefits from this card you need to have calmness in your life, you need stability. 

When pulled in reverse this card says the possible opportunity that is being presented to you can be a bad investment, it could take up more resources than you currently think it will, or it could be saying you are missing your chance for this opportunity. This card can also be a sign that you are going to be going through some hard financial times. Having said that this card is suggesting not to make an big financial decisions and to carefully think about all your options before deciding upon any sort of deal. Now could also be a good time to get advice from others as to avoid making rushed decisions. Now isn’t a good time to start a new job or business especially if you’re considering it for financial gain. It might be an illusion that could hurt you in the end.

Here is a tarot spread to help you start your new beginning in your career. First I would take the ace of pentacles out of the deck and meditate on it thinking about the opportunity you have, or the goal you want to reach. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: King of Swords

63

When pulled upright this card is saying that you should stay objective with whatever you are dealing with right now. You really need to lean on your intelligence to make your point and achieve your goals. Make sure your mind stays sharp and you stay vigilant so you can notice any problems coming your way. It is important to stay stern and to have clarity at all times right now. Before making any decisions you need to think, about all the possible consequences with any choice you could make, to make the best choice. It is key that you get rid of any emotional biases to make the most informed decision. Now is a time to reason with other people and be honest with them on what you’ve observed. This card is saying that you should be able to go into any situation and stay objective while making a decision. This card can also be about high ethical standards.

When pulled in reverse this card is about someone who is abusive and manipulative. This person is likely misusing their authoritative power, or their drive. They are being persuasive through manipulation to get the things they so selfishly want. This card could also be saying that you are showing off how smart you are by using big words that aren’t necessary. And lastly, this card could be saying you have some anger issues which cause you to be explosive. 

Here is a tarot spread if you deal with the last issue; explosive anger. This should help you identify underlying issues and how to go about dealing with it. First I would take the king of swords out of the deck and meditate on it while focusing in on this anger. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Queen of Swords

e533089cb4b5e26f510634cf8ed5e8f7.jpg

When pulled upright this card represents a person who older and wiser. Due to being a queen card they tend to be of someone with femininity however the queen of swords is considered to be the most masculine queen card. This person may come off as very stern and emotionless. This card really encourages you to use your logic before making any decisions as relying on emotions is not the best idea in all circumstances. Despite this, this person does have compassion. They like to connect with others with their intellect. This card is also telling you that you need to be more independent with your judgments. You need to start using your intelligence to come up with your opinions. Take the time to research both sides of an issue before you come to a conclusion that way you aren’t biased. Empathy and compassion when coming to these conclusions is not beneficial as it can distract you from the facts. The goal is to stay objective. This card can also be about how we communicate with others. This card encourages you to be honest and blunt. This gets rid of any confusion and miscommunications. The person this card is referring to may talk like this and if that’s the case you need to communicate the same way back. They will appreciate it.

When pulled in reverse this card is about thinking too much with your heart rather than your brain. You are becoming to involved emotionally with the situation you’re in. This card is warning you to think logically more because your emotions could be leading you down the wrong path. Really take some time and think about the situation and what is actually happening, not what your emotions are assuming is happening. Only when you’ve done that will know what you need to do next. This card can also be about someone who is bitter, coldhearted, and resentful. There is a chance you’ve started to isolate yourself more for various reasons but the people who care about you may not understand your motive. Pushing others away could really strain your relationships so you may want to consider talking to those people and letting them know how you’re feeling. 

Sorry for the profanity but I feel like this tarot spread will help you when it comes to using your logical mind. It lets you focus in on what the issue is and gives you tips on how to start making your objective viewpoint. First I would take the queen of swords out of the deck and meditate on it thinking about what this issue/situation/disagreement/whatever is. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

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.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Page of Swords

S11

When pulled upright this card is about curiosity and a never ending supply of ideas. It’s about being great at communicating. This person has a lot of nervous energy and their mind is never just empty. They always have something to think about. If this card is representing a message then it could be about gossip, legal matters, and agreements; very sword-esque topics. This card could also serve as a reminder to be alert, to keep your eyes peeled, and to stay vigilant. In addition this card could be about an idea you have that you are really eager to execute. You are really passionate about this project and you cannot wait to tell everyone the progress you’re making with it. This is definitely the time to talk about your or other people’s ideas.

When pulled in reverse this card is about using that alertness and sharpness for deceit and manipulation. Their natural gift with talking may be used negatively as they may become very hurtful. They may not totally realize the pain they are causing, whether that be from immaturity or just ignorance. They are really just focusing on how good they feel after lashing out at others. This person though could also be someone who is full of empty promises. They like to talk the talk but not walk the walk, if you will. This card reminds you to show that there is action behind your words. 

Excuse the potty talk in this tarot spread but I thought it might be relevant in helping you figure out what’s up with that reversed page of swords in your life. First I would take the page of swords out of the deck and meditate on it while thinking about that person who’s… well… being an asshole. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

Friendly reminder that they don’t have to be a “he”.
