TAROT-TORTURE™ Libra: November 5, 2014

Knight of Swords

Knight of Swords

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

TAROT-TORTURE™ Virgo: November 5, 2014

Justice

Justice

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

TAROT-TORTURE™ Leo: November 5, 2014

Seven of Wands

Seven of Wands

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

TAROT-TORTURE™ Taurus: November 5, 2014

Eight of Swords

Eight of Swords

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

TAROT-TORTURE™ Taurus: November 3-4, 2014

Knight of Cups

Knight of Cups

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

TAROT-TORTURE™ Leo: November 1-2, 2014

Two of Wands

Two of Wands

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

TAROT-TORTURE™ Virgo: November 1-2, 2014

Ten of Wands

Ten of Wands

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

TAROT-TORTURE™ Sagittarius: November 1-2, 2014

Seven of Cups

Seven of Cups

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!

TAROT-TORTURE™ Capricorn: November 1-2, 2014

Eight of Pentacles

Eight of Pentacles

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

TAROT-TORTURE™ Aquarius: October 29-31, 2014

Page of Swords

Page of Swords

PAGE OF SWORDS (Reversed): Now, water-bearing friend, reversed cards do not make bad cards (I can just see those wheels turning in your head). It just means a different meaning to the card and not always the opposite. This is an interesting card for Aquarius to get right now considering we are just pulling out of Mercury’s retrograde phase. We’re in shadow so all the themes associated with this page are appropriate.

This card can indicate misunderstandings, miscommunication, difficulty expressing thoughts or ideas, and even saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. It is also the card of missing a message somehow, like maybe in a spam folder or a phone call lost in a cell phone app. The more negative connotations of this card would be not being honest with yourself or others, gossiping, and even being too gullible. That’s not what I see though. To me this card is just speaking about the usual delays that this phase of Mercury’s shadow. Read the rest of this entry
