In the Cards

tarot deck

Yes!  It’s another self indulgence day!  I know, nothing new here!  Plus a repeat of a favorite day.  Since I always have a terrible time favoring something above something else, I’ll just do whatever I like. Well, yeah, some days it does not suck to be me.

I’ve been ignoring my Tarot Readings lately (and finding that life goes on anyway) but today I will change all that by actually opening up the app, dealing some cards, reading what they have to say and drawing conclusions as I relate them to my real life.

Well, that’s the plan.  No one can predict success or failure in this random hit or miss type of undertaking with no living psychic involved in the endeavor.  It might be fun, though.  We might all learn something.  About pigs flying and that kind of thing.

This is from the app aptly named Tarot Reading.  Look at me, taking a screen shot on my I-Pad!  It only took a couple of google attempts to find directions I could understand because I couldn’t remember how to do this.  (Why am I admitting such a thing??)  Anyway, on to the readings.

Past - The Fool - This is the beginning and you need to embark on a journey of greater understanding of yourself and life. You cannot remain impulsive and childlike in your beliefs and actions.  Plant a seed and a tree will grow.  (I hate it when somebody tells me I can’t be impulsive and childlike – it makes me want to stamp my feet and pout.) (And cross my arms and roll my eyes and mature stuff like that.)

Unconscious – The Chariot – You can achieve success in any enterprise of your choice by overcoming obstacles which stand in your way. This success comes from making decisions based upon your beliefs and confidence.  Your willpower and diligence will help you emerge from potential adversity as the victor.  Enjoy the moment.  (Even though you just said my beliefs and actions are impulsive and childlike, I guess now I have to forgive you.  Victorious or not, I promise to enjoy the moment.)

Future – The Empress – The richness of your feminine charm and devotion brings the possibility of love or marriage closer to you.  Feelings for love, marriage and family are deepening.  You feel perfect contentment and a desire for a bright future.  This card also means wealth and luck. (That seems to be laying it on a bit thick, but the charm thing certainly makes sense.)

Environment – The Emperor  - Open, clear, honest objectives will win support.  A feeling of energy, motivation and ambition abounds.  There is a sense of purpose and a desire to move forward.  Believe in yourself and your visions and others will follow with confidence and commitment.  This card indicates rules and structure and the ability to think rationally.  (Clearly, the Emperor has mixed me up with somebody else.)

Present – Magician, reversed – Indecision and uncertainty.   A cloud of insecurity has descended over your creative energy.  The card indicates that the power remains but something is holding it back, the energy is blocked.  A project may fall apart and you may lose heart. (No I won’t.  My creative energy is just taking a nap. I will wake it up very soon. I will not lose heart, nothing will fall apart and the magician will be flipped up the right way around very soon.  Just ask the Emperor.)

Solution – Strength – Courage and strength show that you can do what needs to be done.  This card indicates hope and achievement of ones aims.  Willpower, faith, perseverance and trust in ones own ability to do what needs to be done can eventually lead to success.  Take control of your life.  This card is also sometimes the symbol of great passion.  (Except for the great passion addendum, I think that’s pretty much what the Emperor and I just said.) 

Conclusion – Death – End of an old cycle and the beginning of a new one, although it does not always mean the end,  just perhaps a change of direction.  Transformation.  An old cycle must die in order to let a new one begin.  It may be a difficult transition.  However, it will bring new possibilities and vitality if you are prepared to let go of the old and allow for the new in love, work, marriage, or health.  (It’s always a little scary to draw the death card, but whenever it can be linked with work, well, yay for the death card. The countdown to retirement and personal transformation is indeed on.) 

Believe it or not, I drew the cards only once, and not a dozen times.  It seemed like a good omen to have so many of them right side up first try.
