KNIGHT OF SWORDS (reversed): Libra, you are likely experiencing a range of emotions, everything from feeling great — amazing — to anxious about when the next shoe drops. You’re likely wondering if all the good things in your life are going to be washed away some how. I’ve seen this personally with one Libra in my life — it may not apply to all Libra types, alright, this is very general sun sign stuff — and I also noticed that he’s kind of cracking a bit. It’s not the most fun to watch a Libra person under this kind of duress; everything’s going well but they can’t believe it. I don’t blame you. You should be having a fairly good stroke of luck these days. Well, not luck! You earned it. Read the rest of this entry
JUSTICE (reversed): Virgo, you could be dealing with some frustrations that are causing you distractions. It could be that your temper is very short because you’d rather be laid back and not have to dig for whatever information you need, especially if it’s due to someone else’s careless mistakes. If there’s anyone who can sort through layers of problems to find solutions, it’s you, Virgo. But you’re likely feeling stretched thin making up — or covering up — someone else’s messy tracks. I don’t blame you if you’re feeling irritable; everyone’s willing to rely on you to clean up their problems and just as willing to take credit for it, too. Aren’t you sick of that? I’m a Virgo rising; I am sick of it! But I’ve learned the hard way that I’m not here to wipe everyone’s bottom just because they don’t know how. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. It can be anyone from your kids to your pesky coworker that can’t pull their own weight. It’s not fair or balanced, you say? I agree. that’s what the Justice card reversed is about. Please keep reading; it will all make sense! Read the rest of this entry
SEVEN OF WANDS (reversed): Leo, you may be feeling centered one moment and melancholy the next. Feeling on top of your game for a while, then feeling like you don’t know what your game is. The thing is, Leo, it’s okay to feel this way. The more you try to tell yourself you should feel one way or another, the more you feel like you’re not sure, anyway. It’s advised that you remember that it’s perfectly fine to feel a little down sometimes. Maybe even a lot down — just don’t stay there.
Some feelings from the past may resurface. The therapist me wants me to say that it’s just the stress in your life that you’ve been dealing with that’s making you feel all kinds of sadness. But the truth is you may have been telling yourself that you’re strong, you’re fine, that you can do this, for so long now that you’re tired. If you’re spiritually connected and you feel this way you may even feel guilt! Don’t add to it, my friend, don’t go piling up more of…everything. Can’t you just accept that life isn’t always a bed of roses? Even roses have thorns. If you pick one up and prick your finger, it hurts and it bleeds. And then you learn not to do that again — and if you do — then no big deal, so you’re a little careless with roses! It doesn’t mean that you aren’t in touch with Jesus enough or that you’re not good enough or that you are just a wreck and…see how I can do that too? Difference is that I’m the one speaking the part. You are more likely to keep it to yourself. That’s not good, either. If you’re a little low then talk to someone who helps you feel centered again. Read the rest of this entry
SEVEN OF CUPS: Cancer, emotions got you down? Maybe you can’t even tell what your emotions are talking about. It is very likely that someone from your past has come up and you realize that you haven’t really dealt with it. It’s okay, Cancer, to let it all out. Just remember that the person who is sitting there telling you all THEIR problems may not see it coming when you unleash your emotions. Just make sure you are unleashing them toward someone who might understand you, not someone who is in the same pit with you. I realize that Cancer people are very sensitive and the thing is, they often try to hide their own sensitive spots under the guise or ruse of being some big tough guy or gal. So be your sensitive self but be true to yourself. Don’t make matters worse for yourself by a) keeping it all in, or b) unloading it on the wrong person. I think I’ve posed a conundrum but I believe you know what I’m saying. Don’t go talking about your personal problems with your coworkers or bosses; so often I’ve had to counsel my Cancer friends to keep personal life separate from work life no matter how blended the two become.

EIGHT OF SWORDS (reversed): Taurus, this card talks about being ready to move forward in your life. To leave the imaginary constraints behind. Though you may not feel 100% sure of how to go about this, you do sense that you’re ready to start taking steps forward. We need to remember that it always is a little scary to go beyond what we’ve become accustomed to. This could be some limits you’ve imposed upon yourself, like maybe you don’t go out much. Or your life is online and not real life. Maybe you just go out to work, get your groceries, but you go right back into your house and…back online. Read the rest of this entry
SEVEN OF WANDS: Aries, you’re fighting a good fight! I’m not sure you realize that you are in struggle, but by the time you realize that you’re doing a good job Uranus will not be so annoying for you. The energy these days is a little crazy but you seem to be holding up well. This is a card that indicates you will keep your enemies or rivals at bay, it won’t be a full-on, nasty battle, and while it will require effort, you’ll come out on top. Read the rest of this entry
KNIGHT OF CUPS (reversed): Taurus, when this knight appears reversed, you need to exercise caution. This is a card that indicates someone is going to try to deceive you, trick you into something, and they may come across oh so genuinely. The cups ‘people’ are very sweet, romantic, charming, and even disarming. But when they show up reversed, Lord, they are slippery fish. Speaking of astrology, these people sometimes show up as water signs (Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio) and this card is obviously a male, he’s younger than a king if you go by the usual ‘maturity’ that’s present with men that are kings. Some people see kings as men in their 40s or older, and sometimes they are easy to recognize because they are married, have kids, etc. I call it how I feel like it at the moment; this guy is either younger or he acts young. Being a reversed knight, I think he’s immature in some ways that you should be picking up on by now if he’s in the vicinity. It could also be a woman, of course, a masculine woman, if we had to really split hairs. Read the rest of this entry
KING OF PENTACLES: Gemini, I recall your last reading and I see how this card factors in. This is a card that indicates a man who is good with financial matters and business acumen. It seems to me that you need some advice and this man will appear at the time if you don’t know who he is already. I’m so glad I didn’t get a hard card to interpret for your situation.
Recently you may have been kicking yourself for messing up some situation or opportunity that was of a financial nature. Maybe you needed to refinance your house and you discovered you encumbered it to the point that you can’t squeeze a dime out of it. Maybe it’s upside down and you need to figure out what to do. The fact this king appears tells me that help, or at least very sound advice is on the way. Read the rest of this entry
SEVEN OF SWORDS: Cancer, the suit of swords isn’t the easiest to deal with but they can be used to your advantage. While the seven is a little sneaky, and may very well indicate that you my have to be sneaky to achieve your ends, it could also mean that someone’s sneaking around on you — and you’ll have to be sneaky to figure out what they’re doing. I know, I just over used the word sneaky but there’s no better word for this card in my mind right now.
Swords are about battle, of course, and when we see them in readings they aren’t the most pleasant at all. I think if you ask most tarot readers they’ll tell you this is their least favorite suit. But we do have to remember that these cards can come up in all kinds of questions and so if the matter at hand is romance and this card comes up, then this card is interpreted in that light. The question could be about a job and these swords can come up; there’s no way to avoid them if they have a message that needs to come to light. Read the rest of this entry
TWO OF WANDS (reversed): Leo, you may be feeling like you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place. This is a card that indicates a person is sad, worried about the future, and maybe even dealing with a sense of loss. It’s a card that’s a mixture of disappointment and fear. Because this card is a two, there’s the element that things are too early to call, Leo, even if you are fearing the worst. This is a person who, in the upright position, may not be sure of exactly what’s on the horizon for them, but they have a sense of healthy, positive anticipation. Imagine that the same card in the reverse means a person who fears the worst, and you can understand that it’s just too early to even tell what the worst could be — if we were to think that negatively. You may have good reason to fear something right now, Leo, but that’s not going to do you any good.
I’m not going to sit here and write flowery things to simply blow smoke up your ass. Times are tough; situations aren’t always easy to navigate. But even if your situation is concerning, I guarantee you that worrying about it too much is going to be quite counterproductive. It’s not about spiritual things, it’s not about being not metaphysically good enough and blaming yourself for not manifesting a million dollars out of your behind. Read the rest of this entry
TEN OF WANDS (reversed): Virgo, you may be feeling over-burdened, burned out, and seriously tired. You may feel so weighed down by the weight of the world on your shoulders that you are exhausted physically, mentally, and emotionally. Perhaps you’ve been carrying your burdens for so long that you don’t even know what not carrying them feels like. Burdens aren’t always obvious; sometimes they are psychological, deep, even very buried in the unconscious.
If you’re in a relationship that’s dragging you down, it’s very likely that the writing has been on the wall for some time. It’s very likely that you are the one who is procrastinating the obvious end. I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve been looking the other way from your partner’s behaviors because you can’t bear to face them — then you’d have to deal with them. Your relationship could also be souring a work or family relationship. And you don’t always take criticism well, constructive or loving as it likely is, and that’s further damaged these other very important relationships in your life. You’re not likely yourself in a lot of ways. Read the rest of this entry
THE LOVERS (reversed): Libra, I’m inclined to get your attention quickly without making you read too much. No, nothing terrible is going to happen. Yes, you need to slow it down long enough to read what I’m going to write. I know some sun signs like me to get very, very deep, and others like me to stay very topical. You’re always somewhere in the middle unless it’s about romantic relationships; then you want me to dive so deep I fear I’ll run out of words. On to the good stuff!
Alright, my friend, you need to slow things down so you can sort them out. There is a chance here that you could make a hasty decision and regret it later, most likely about romance, but not exclusively. Yes, there are people who are opposing you and I’m not sure if they are only coworkers but they could also be those same romantic relationships. That’s why it’s so important to slow things down to sort them out! You can often be your own worst enemy, my friend, especially when you’ve lost it (again) and are head over heels in relationship. That’s when you want things your way and sometimes that means you want the best of both worlds; you want one person to be yours exclusively but you won’t likely be exclusive to one person. You try — I’ll give you that, you give it a noble start — but when things aren’t as rosy as your tinted lenses you freak out and feel like it’s all wrong…and look! A squirrel!

THE MAGICIAN: Scorpio, what can I say; this card is all about you. But if you’re not feeling very magical, let’s address that right off the bat: I don’t blame you. You’ve been through it. Even though for most Scorpio types the worst is definitely over — and for those who are still being worked on by Saturn directly, I know your pain very well, truly I do — many are feeling like they can barely manage to raise their heads to acknowledge the same.
And not everyone understands this enough to give you the room you need. I can’t even get some people to understand that while they don’t understand what I’m going through, that I don’t want to talk about it to help them understand. I hardly want to talk about it at all, other than writing when I feel like it. People beckon me to come out to play, let me come over to play, or just let’s play! And I’m in no mood for it.
There’s a lot about Saturn in Scorpio that people are never going to understand and that’s okay; I’m not here to teach them how to give people space. So if you feel like no one understands you and you don’t want to talk about it either, I know you’ll be alright because you will talk about it when you feel like it, if ever you do. But I know that you don’t feel 100% every day and that’s perfectly alright, and if you do, more power to you. You’re not the majority. Read the rest of this entry
SEVEN OF CUPS (reversed): Sagittarius, this card indicates that your energies are scattered. It could be that you aren’t focusing on any one thing to get it right, or, you are hyperactive and focusing on so many things at once that something that matters is going to fall through the cracks. Further, this card could mean that you have the best intentions — you have a dream that you do want to follow through on — but you are feeling a little down and insecure and thinking you won’t be able to get it ‘right’, so why try it at all. This writing will seem full of contradictions so please bear with me; there’s something about you that’s a contradiction right now. And just as everyone knows that a Sag will flitter-flutter between ideas, thoughts, and even emotions (if you have a Sag friend, you know this), I’m going to try to appeal to you while I bob and weave with you!

EIGHT OF PENTACLES (reversed): Capricorn, this card tells me that you’re feeling stuck, frustrated by delays, and a general sense of disappointment about your job and career. It could be that you’re not doing your best at work right now because you’re not getting what you believe is your fair due. Maybe you’re not being recognized for your effort and someone else is taking the credit. It’s also very likely that you’re not employed at all and can’t seem to find a job that’s a good match at all.
In the instance that you have a good job and a fair wage but you feel that life owes you something more than what you have, I’ll caution you that this card reversed indicates someone who may resort to dishonesty to get what they want. Material wealth at the expense of the spiritual is never worth it. This is more indicative of a person who has the desire to achieve much but doesn’t have the drive to do the work to achieve the same. Read the rest of this entry
FIVE OF CUPS: Aquarius, see this image: what does it mean? Or rather, what do you feel it means?
FEEL — I ASKED YOU WHAT YOU FEEL IT MEANS. YOUR LOGIC IS OF NO USE HERE.
Notice I didn’t ask you what you think it means? Because I don’t want you to think. That’s right; I don’t want you to think!
Let’s look at this card anyway, for what its appearance is worth, because we are learning the cards anyway. This card depicts a sad person whose eyes are downcast. It’s not apparent if he’s looking at the spilled cups or if his eyes are closed. It doesn’t matter because it’s obvious that he’s thinking about the cups that are spilled, anyway. He isn’t looking at the gorgeous blue sky that looks like sunrise to me. He isn’t looking at the castle or the bridge behind him — the very bridge to the next thing he could do with his life. He doesn’t see the still, blue waters around him and he doesn’t even realize that there are good things growing around him as evidenced by the healthy, green vines on the tree behind him. Notice that the clothes he’s wearing are quite nice? It only appears that he needs a shower and to freshen up — he’s not dirty or in tatters. The only thing this person is doing is focusing on what was, what has happened; and because of this, he doesn’t see the two perfectly good golden goblets right behind him! What does this scene feel like, Aquarius — how does it make you feel? Read the rest of this entry
SEVEN OF SWORDS: This card is one that talks about deception, gathering information, mental agility, and yes, full on lying. This card even talks about breaking the law to get one’s way. It’s also a card of breaking agreements with people, too. When I see this card I usually wonder what someone’s up to because they are usually quite aware they are doing something in a sneaky way to get something, like information. It reminds me of the energy of a snoop, a detective, someone digging quietly, sneaking around, to get some information. Read the rest of this entry
I’ve been perfecting them! Stay tuned — lots of fun stuff just for you.
I love you all, very much. I wish you well!
I’ve got some homestretch admonitions that I’ll record soon but I want you to have some sense of peace about Saturn for now. I know you’re wondering what’s going on with it. Saturn’s always somewhere in the sky, of course. It’s in Scorpio right now (and each person, regardless of their sign, has Saturn in the house that their Scorpio placement rules and has been learning lessons in that house since about October, 2012. But, a note to SCORPIO and those with strong Scorpio placement (and Taurus, as you sit across the sky from Scorpio — you’ve been hit too): you’ve been taking it all directly. This would be the time that some Scorpions are still under Saturn’s heavy thumb though the time is getting short. I know you’re tired! It’s almost over so I hope, I do very much hope, that you’ve used this time wisely. You’ll one day soon look back and thank Saturn for all he taught you. The lessons are worthy of the student, my friends. If you’re reading this right now, you’re more than worthy of Saturn’s rewards, too! Read the rest of this entry
