Queen of Pentacles.

One who is critical regarding pragmatism and the quality of things. Observing and coaching, they have a high standard for the way things work (or should work) both for themselves and others. They often put themselves in other people’s business, but just want to help.

Not all plans follow through to fruition. Calculating our own destinies can be pointless especially when we work in solitude or secrecy expecting things from others.

Connecting with people is a way into control. You can manage risk by knowing your people and being up front with them. Pulling strings from behind may just leave you tangled.

King of Pentacles reversed.

One who lets their wealth and status get to their head. Investments become self-serving. Relationships are abused as resources. Power is displayed through extravagance rather than actionable effort to serve others. Can be highly critical and compulsive. Corrupted by money.

Trying to get more comfortable with my face 😳

Knight of Pentacles reversed. Productivity in decline. Daydreaming and idleness. Boredom and frustration.

When it comes to work and projects it seems like things struggle to move along. Should I wait for the path to clear itself, or should I thrust a bunch of energy into things to clear a path?

Walls are limitations to freedom; However, our energy, focus, and resources are finite. Boundaries become grounding when we reach degrees of exhaustion. The balance in this is where do walls become obstacles and where do they become self-preservation?

Can we have both? Maybe these things are negotiable?

Card of meditation is (again) The Magician. Never cock block creativity! When inspiration strikes be the lightning rod it grounds through you. Otherwise the power is internalized and can become corrosive.

This may feel like an impulse to think about, act on, write about, dance to, draw, paint, or speak. Let it out and let it flow. You are the conduit through which the Universe is attempting to make things manifest. It can be the urge to resolve issues and problem solve through conversation or action. You don’t want the Cosmos to be bitter, do you?

Do it! Do it now!

A super busy day so I’m only posting my reading from this morning now!

Looking back at the previous days and reflecting: The Sun reversed.

I thought maybe it’s a soured joy or love. Embodiment of success with an air of doom. But I’m considering that it means finding light in the dark. Yesterday I was surrounded by friends and laughter almost out of nowhere. It may not last, but it felt so so nice and needed in that moment.

The next few days coming up: The Magician.

I was thinking a lot about hosting a group ritual and got very excited so maybe I should go through with it! But really this card tells me to have no doubt, no hesitation with making dreams reality and to just follow through with that deep inner divine inspiration to act on dreams.

I’ve been in such a slump, I hope the cycles will change in my favor soon enough.

This reading is about another reading 😅

Multiple oracles have informed me of how emotionally fallible I am recently (as if I needed a reminder). So I want to know what’s up.

HERE’S WHAT’S UP: The Devil reversed.

Emotions control me in ways that contradict the best version of myself. I submit to them, imprisoned and overwhelmed.

THE PROBLEM: 10 of Swords reversed.

A temporary release is a bandaid fix. A reprise is nice but escapism can come crashing down if you continue absent mindedly.

ADVICE: 3 of Pentacles.

Work on it, build it out. I want to be emotionally stronger and that takes effort and mentorship. These effects are investments that won’t be shed away.

I can be emotionally stable! I just have to work for it. Input = output. Don’t throw away all the progress with one mishappening. Change will continue.

Okay, so I have a question about cartomancy (I hope it makes sense) if you were to give a general description of someone's personality, would it makes sense to remove the face cards and only use them for the reading or should I still use the entire deck?

Hello! You can really do either options.

When you specifically pull cards out of the deck and knowingly place them into positions in Tarot spreads we call these cards ‘significators’. They signify an aspect of something we would like to put into question. In regards to someone’s personality, a court card to represent them could be placed—the cards that fall around them in the spread would be random.

Another option is to section off cards in the deck, such as pulling out only major cards, only numbered pip cards, or only court cards. This is quite useful if you want to narrow the ‘output’ information of your ‘input’ question. Limiting cards to court cards can help you understand nuance to personality when you pull 1-2 cards from the 16. For example, you could do the Sun Moon Star Tarot spread with court cards only to see which personas dominate the known and hidden selves.

If you’re going for something general it may be best to simplify. Just use all the cards, and only pull one. Ask one specific open-ended question (who, what, where, when, why, how).

Have fun, be nice!
