Did you know that the Minor Arcana tarot cards can be used as a timing devize to represent the four seasons in a year?
Tarot readers may have different ideas as to which tarot suit might refer to which season and, like everything in Tarot, you will have to follow your own personal instincts on this. However, I’m offering the following ideas which are purely personal based on years of experience.
Spring: Wands: The Wands cards are illustrated with sprouting branches, so what better symbol than ‘spring time’ when nature renews everything and buds begin to burst forth on trees once again.
Summer: Cups: The idea of fruition, fullness, warmth, and joy which are associated with these cards link well with the hot lazy days of summer
Autumn: Pentacles: These cards have a feeling of wealth, resources, and preservation which seem to fit well with the abundance associated with ‘harvest’ time and the gathering in of crops
Winter: Swords: The qualities of sadness, loss, fear, pain and rejection which are associated with so many of these cards have a feeling of the desolate coldness of winter about them
Tarot is an amazing tool to gain insight into both your near and distance future.
And the best thing is, you needn’t use all 78 cards to do this. A one card tarot reading can still be predictive and offer you plenty of insight.
Tarot card of the day: This one tarot card represents a daily guide. It may point out an opportunity, a task, or a simply some aspect that needs your attention that day. You can see this card, as being like your daily guardian angel or companion, tipping you off from a different dimension.
Tarot card of the week: This card highlights the topic of the week. It is as if you are taking a magnifying glass and seeing your week head magnified many times. For instance if you have meetings of any kind planned in the coming week, the tarot card of the week will more than likely offer you advice on the best approach.
Tarot card of the month: This provides an outline on how the next four weeks are likely to be, it will zoom in on what’s going to be the most important area of your life and how it is all likely to play out.
What’s the best way to perform a one card tarot reading?
Take your time and make sure that you sitting comfortably, but alert. Try to breathe freely. Now just listen – not outwardly, but inwardly. Think about anything that it is on your mind, for the day, week or month ahead.
Now shuffle all 78 tarot cards.
Make sure the images remain face down, so that you do not see them.
Now draw your one tarot card.
Place the single card face down in front of you and turn.
Study the image of the card carefully, what immediately comes into your mind as you look at it? You will find that usually the first thought that pops into your mind as the image speaks to you is likely to be the most important. Trust your instincts as you study the card further and listen carefully to the wisdom that the tarot wishes to share with you.
Cosmic overview February brings us the day for lovers, Valentine’s Day. Interestingly, this year Venus planet of love, passionate Mars and dreamy Neptune, will all have arrived in the sign of Pisces by February 14th. This cosmic alignment increases the chance of success in love, marriage proposals, and reconnecting with old flames! Pisces is the sign of universal love, and it’s ruler, Neptune, is said to be a ‘higher vibration’ of Venus. With Mars in the mix, there’s a fair amount of physical attraction likely to play it’s part in love connections. So expect to feel especially drawn to strangers that you meet socially this coming month. The only note of caution is that, Mercury is retrograde until February 11th, so do be sure to drive carefully, and read all documents carefully before agreeing to or signing any financial committments.

This well-known Tarot card like all tarot cards is multi-layered in meaning.
But today we will be examining the classic meaning, i.e, problems within a love relationship.
I usually see this card in relation to a ‘love triangle’ going on in the life in of the person who is having the reading.
I like to link this idea with the famous quote by the late Princess Diana: “There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded. ”
So it is more than likely that there is a negative outside influence, affecting the future outcome of the relationship in question.
This may be something that is already suspected about a partner, and in this case the card confirms the fact.
But it can also suggest that the person who is having the reading is not being ‘faithful’ to their partner. And in this case the tarot card is fortelling that soon an important choice will have to be made, as to which person they wish to disappoint. Often though fate will play a part in this and their hand will be forced – the situation is not set to continue for too long.
If this card keeps appearing in your tarot reading, you really need to pay heed to your love relationship, as it is likely that harmony does not prevail there.
If you have questions or concerns about your love relationship then I offer a ‘question and answer’ psychic email reading to offer insight into your situation.
