Daily Tarot::King of Cups

The King of Cups appeared before on 6.15.2017 – but REVERSED.
Compare the two readings.

Mystic Dreamer Tarot

Cups in the Tarot deck are the suit representing emotions. The King of Cups speaks of balanced male and feminine energy; he holds all the positive qualities of both. Often he indicates a literal man in your life. Know that you are supported by the universe – in ways seen and unseen. In general, the King of Cups represents kindness and compassion and appears when the need to dissipate the drama is peaking in your daily activities. There are few cards that are more loving than the King of Cups; there is an element of pure and true love in your life no matter what your situation. Nurture yourself and allow others to nurture you. This King bodes well regarding love, and can indicate someone who is very balanced and loving headed your way soon. The King of Cups may point you to a need to be generous no matter how tight your financial situations might be. (No matter how modest your situation is, there is doubtless something that you can and should share with others, even if it’s “only” an object or your time.) This can often “open up” more prosperity in our lives. Give with kindness and compassion, and know that what goes around always comes around; and don’t hesitate to ask for help if you need it. With regard to spirituality, the King of Cups can be somewhat contradictory as he combines the (generally) feminine qualities of compassion, love, and concern with the male energy of action, accomplishment, and discernment. Meditate on these combinations and take action. How can you be compassionately active? How can you be loving and still draw boundaries? Start by drawing boundaries for yourself before you consider creating boundaries for others. “Walking meditations” are good and bring insight when this King appears.

(Known also as the Lord of Waves and Waters, The King of Cups represents fire in the element of water, trying to bring the contrasts in balance. He is aligned with the masculine properties of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces; and represents mastery of emotion and channeling of desires and wishes.)

Daily Tarot::Queen of Wands

Imagine my unbridled JOY when I turned the card over this morning to reveal the Queen of Wands! In the Tarot, she’s the one I was instantly drawn to and use to represent myself as Querent. In fact,  I’ve devoted a Section to this Queen  which you can access at any time by clicking on Queen of Wands Tarot Cards which are scattered throughout my site – like this one on my homepage:

Cosmic Tarot Deck

The Queen of Wands is one of the most fertile (metaphorically and literally) and feminine/womanly energies in the Tarot deck. In a reading, like all court cards, she can often signify a literal person in our lives, most often female. The Queen brings good energy, and is a positive sign to receive. The Queen of Wands can also refer to a woman who has a lot of FIRE energy about her (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius). When not referring to a literal person, she stands for getting a lot accomplished, and often, a focus on work/career. The Queen is positive, uplifting energy. When she stands in for a woman in your life, she’s a good friend, who is solidly on your side, even though she may seem a bit self-absorbed. If you are looking for work, this Queen can mean that a woman (usually with light-colored hair) will be instrumental in helping you find employment. All in all, things will be looking up professionally. Again, this Queen is a very positive omen in the context of love relationships. If you are looking for love, this can mean that you’ll meet someone suitable through a light-haired friend or acquaintance. You aren’t in the mood to be on your own now. Get out, mingle, trust yourself and the universe to bring you the love and support you want and need. You may be tempted to get carried away buying things when this Queen appears – exercise moderation or you may come to regret your expenditures. This doesn’t mean money will be bad, it just means that you are not in the mood to think before spending. Your home surroundings are a good place to put your efforts now. But home improvement doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Be creative. You are suddenly likely to be spiritually hungry when the Queen of Wands appears. Take your time, read and reflect, talk to lots of people, before making huge life changes. Your exploration is admirable. Crossing over into huge life-changing decisions without full consideration might not be as healthy.

(The Queen of Wands is also the Queen of the Thrones of Flame, and is aligned with the fiery signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. She represents self-knowledge, warmth, pleasure, compassion and loyalty. This Queen is born of Fire and is depicted in antiquity as the fiery goddesses of old, whose chariots were drawn by lions.)

Daily Tarot::Ace of Pentacles (reversed)

 

Deviant Moon Tarot

The reversed Ace of Pentacles can indicate that you are worrying too much about money. Yes, we all need to pay attention to our finances, but to be overly concerned can steal our capacity for happiness in the present moment. Count your blessings. Do what you can, and leave the rest to the universe. The time may be approaching that will call you to go out into the world in a different and bigger way to make a living. Don’t avoid this, just do it. You will do fine. The reversed Ace says good things are (or will soon be) happening on the work front. If you are looking for love, this is a clear signal that the time may be drawing near that you could meet someone wonderful, either through your work or theirs. Be friendly, and get out and mingle. When the reversed Ace of Pentacles appears, it’s important that you don’t allow yourself to think too negatively about money. Yes, other people have more, but your finances are generally stable and are going to stay stable when this card appears. Think positively, and make the best of what you have. The reversed Ace is a signal that you may benefit greatly from increased contact with people who are on a spiritual path; whether that’s a path that’s very similar to your own or whether you wish to learn more about very different ways of looking at things is up to you. The point is to go out into the world, and learn more about what others are saying, thinking, and experiencing.

(Known also as the Root of the Powers of Earth, the Ace of Pentacles is a burst of material energy and success. There is a new phase in appreciation of material riches and what that could mean to you and your plans. The Ace of Disks tells us that something will be created, something will begin.)

Daily Tarot::10 of Pentacles (reversed)

 

Black Metal Tarot

Even reversed, the 10 of Pentacles is generally a very positive omen. This is not, however, a time to gamble with your security and things that are important to you; in other words, don’t take silly chances. The reversed 10 of Pentacles in general says that you have a great deal to be happy about, but you need to beware a sense of boredom, which often comes about when people are actually at peace. Don’t shake things up for the sake of it. Count your blessings, at all levels. If you are looking for work when this card appears, beware people that talk a good game and scammers. You shouldn’t have to pay money to get a job. The reversed 10 of Pentacles is still a very positive indicator with regard to love. If you are looking for love, and are single, this is a time to get out and meet people; you are likely to find that your good, upbeat energy is coming through you, and that people are naturally attracted to you. The reversed 10 of Pentacles can imply that you are ready for adventure and through your spirituality can be an excellent way to channel this energy. Be open to new ideas, new adventures, and new ways of thinking about the spiritual side of life.

(Known also as the Lord of Wealth and aligned with Mercury in Virgo, the 10 of Pentacles represents physical prosperity, wealth and abundance. Mercury rules the processes of mind and intellect, while Virgo is the organiser that values competency and results – also Mercury is the ruler of Virgo so this is a strong placement and highlights success and precision.)

Daily Tarot::Queen of Pentacles

Devious Tarot

The Queen of Pentacles, like all the court cards, often stands in for an actual person in your life. In that regard, she would represent a woman, likely with dark hair and dark eyes. However this is not always the case, as these cards can also represent energetic influences in our lives. The energy of the Queen of Pentacles is normally quite archetypically feminine; hearth, home, motherhood. This card can indicate that you will be spending time, money, and energy on your home, getting it to be more comfortable. This is a good thing, provided you don’t take on too much debt. People will be looking to you for insight and/or advice. You will be able to help them, if you are so inclined. This is a time period when you can get a lot accomplished. Regarding work, you are likely to make great headway now. A woman with dark hair and/or eyes may play a significant role in your working life; if so, know that she is an ally for you. In the context of love, this is a very feminine card, and also points to strategy, particularly for those who are not currently involved with anyone. The strategy to find love is the stereotypical feminine one; don’t chase it, make yourself available, but do not be desperate to bring someone new into your romantic life. When the time is right, that will be made abundantly clear to you, and you won’t have to do back flips to make something come about. Be upbeat, and know that you have many things in you which are worth loving. The Queen of Pentacles is an excellent omen when it comes to money. Your prosperity level is very likely to be increasing. Don’t hesitate to spend some of your new-found wealth. Saving is important, but enjoying your life when you have the means to do so is also important. Share what you have when you can. It’s critical that you trust yourself. You may not see things spiritually the way everyone else does, but your belief system works for you, and that’s what’s most important. When it comes to our spiritual lives, although it’s important to listen to the input from others, ultimately we must make our own decisions. If others don’t understand your decisions, that’s their problem.

(Known also as the Queen of the Thrones of Earth and aligned with the feminine aspects of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, the Queen of Pentacles represents pleasure, practicality and sensuality. She brings a bounty of riches, health and steadiness to those who have struggled and passed through a long period of deprivation.)
