Welcome to your weekly Tarot forecast! Spring has sprung for sure in the Pacific Northwest. Temps are rising and sun is shining! Rather nice today especially since it’s my birthday. Special greetings to my fellow astrological Sun sign Pisces folks.
I’m using the Robin Wood deck this week. I never tire of the bright illustrations of this deck, which I’ve had since 2000.
Since there is no specific question or area of concern for these readings, my interpretation will be very general in nature, based on my sense of what the Tarot itself is addressing and the general energy potentials for the week.
Looks like the Queen of Pentacles has decided to hang out for another week, one that has some serious blessings and magic about it.
Let’s do a chronological look first, and then we’ll use some mirrored pairs to round out the message.
The Timeline View
We begin this week with home and celebration. Wonderfully refreshing after last week’s sense of gloom and doom at the beginning of the week and a chaotic vibe at the end. You can relax a bit, knowing that Mom or someone else with practical support will have your back (Queen of Pentacles). Go out and celebrate with friends (Three of Cups); it’s a good week.
At midweek, it will be time to stop and check in with tradition (The Hierophant). That 3 of C party was fun, but if you’ve been studying a new meditation practice or a new Tarot deck or book, get serious about integrating what you’ve learned to make you an expert in your craft (whatever that is). Remember, you have to know the rules in order to break the rules. I’ve always found The Hierophant a difficult card because I left my original church and never want to go back to that, but he’s also about finding a good teacher in any spiritual discipline, and look, he’s blessing his acolytes (students)! A bit distant-looking, but a benevolent guy.
Moving toward the end of the week, it’s time for magic (The Magician)! So, now that you’ve learned the rules, you get to break them by knowing the underlying principles that apply to all disciplines and not just the one you learned from. You have the power (a gift of the Earth here), and you can apply it in the realm of ideas and intellect provided by the Ace of Swords. Stay focused and your magic will create wonders.
The Mirrored Tarot Pairs
The focal point for this view of your cards is the wisdom of the tradition and its experts (The Hierophant). Keep in mind that you are always in a position to learn the ways of the Force or any other discipline you are involved in.
Now let’s pair the outer cards up to see how they might inform your situation. The Q of P is nicely grounded and provides a bit of stable emotional and possibly material support for that idea you want to pursue (Ace of Swords). Swords likes to use rational thought for everything, but the Q of P says to also take into account a bit of practical intuition in guiding the magic you focus on.
The inner cards reinforce the idea of success in your endeavors this week, with opportunity for celebration (3 of C) and mastery (The Magician) in working with the tradition you have chosen.
