Tarot Card Reading

Card 1: This card covers you. It represents the influences and atmosphere affecting you.


Knight/Prince of WANDS Reversed
Frustration, as when dealing with minds less quick or capable than one's own. Rupture, discord, division, interruption. May also betoken intolerance, prejudice and the refusal to listen to views at variance to one's own.


Card 2: This card crosses you. It represents your obstacles. If favorable, opposing forces are not serious.


Six of SWORDS
Journey by water (not so common nowadays, but not impossible). Passage away from difficulties, but only with the expenditure of more effort. May also suggest the calm at the eye of the storm, a temporary respite in struggle.


Card 3: This card crowns you. It represents your aim or ideal in the matter, that which has not yet been made actual.


Three of WANDS
Established reputation in some field, probably intellectual if wands predominate in the reading. Self-assertion, self-confidence, practicality and the financial rewards thereof. May be in a position to assist another.


Card 4: This card is beneath you. It represents that which has already passed into actuality, what you have made your own.


Deuce of CUPS
Love, especially Platonic love which is more emotional and spiritual than physical: one's soul-mate. Friendship, harmony. Marriage, perhaps later in life. Joint efforts in magical or spiritual affairs. More often than not, I have found this card in spreads for partners in couples where physical attraction, emotional, and spiritual love are harmoniously balanced.


Card 5: This card is behind you. It represents the influences that are just now passing.


Deuce of COINS Reversed
Too many projects at the same time; scattering of attention, wasteful dispersal of energies. Literal translation as opposed to interpretation. Unwillingness to apply one's self. Simulated enjoyment, forced gaiety. I have frequently found both the unfavorable and favorable meanings of this card to refer to actors or other performers who must appear before the public even when physically or emotionally indisposed to do so.


Card 6: This card is before you. It represents the influences that are coming into action now or in the near future.


II The High Priestess Reversed
Passion (meaning, usually, sex); moral or physical ardor; acceptance of surface knowledge, conceit.


Card 7: This card signifies you. It represents your position and attitude in the matter.


Page/Princess of WANDS: Reversed
Bad news, rumor and innuendo; anecdotes, theatricality; instability; cruelty.


Card 8: This card signifies your environment. It represents the influences of your position, your friends, your family and so forth.


Eight of WANDS Reversed
Non-arrival of a communication upon which one has pinned one's hopes. The arrows of jealousy, the sting of conscience. For domestic partners, the card may indicate disputes of some kind. One reference suggests rote learning without true understanding and preaching the "One True Way."


Card 9: This card signifies your hopes and your fears in the matter.


XV The Devil Reversed
Spiritual understanding, psychic healing. Weakness, pettiness, blindness (not physical only), ineffectuality, indecision.


Card 10: This card signifies what will come. The culmination which is brought about by the influences of the other cards: The final outcome.


Knight/Prince of COINS Reversed
Stagnation, otiosity, inertia, laziness, stagnation. Also, carelessness of the kind that leaves tools lying about the work area to become a general hazard, and the reluctance to take great pains with any project.
