My daughter did a reading for me last night while we were sitting by the fire and here's the result:

Top, center: The Page (or Jack) of Cups (you couldn't get more Jackian than that!

Left: The Emperor, reversed

Center: III of Swords

Right: The Lovers

If you know much about Tarot, you can probably tell that something significant has just happened in my life and you may even be able to tell what it is!! Can you guess??

I'm looking forward to doing some readings this weekend. In the meantime, here's the one I did for myself when celebrating with Brokie friends on New Years Eve, 2008:

2009 New Year Tarot Reading: Lee

Top:
Page of Cups

Donít get upset if things are not going as you hoped. Be open to alternatives and prepare for a change in plans. Think before reacting. Beware of childish behavior.

This is the daydream kid; head in the clouds, rarely paying attention. They've got a great imagination and love telling or being told stories, but they're also overly sensitive; very kind and sweet, they'll bring you a flower, try to rescue sick birds or abandoned kittens, take very seriously the death of a goldfish. When sad, they're the saddest kid you ever saw. When happy, they're positively blissful.
Interesting! Both Tarot readings I've had this year have the very same card in the very same position! I'm starting to get the message!!


Right: Ace of Wands

Aces are the root force. They are the spark. Relate them to the Magician, who presents the tools to the Fool. They have no purpose yet, but are filled with raw potential. They are the active energy of the suit ready to be used. They can also indicate direction or season, though which stands for which is often debated. Here are the "usual" directions and seasons. If, however, they don't feel right to you, the reader, use whatever works best.

A new spark of energy for a new passion. This usually indicates that the querent has just discovered a new religion, philosophy, cause or career choice. They feel their energy go up, they feel the heat, and they want more of it. They take up the wand and start to walk.


This is the card that was in my "future" position on January 1, and now it's The Lovers. Both very positive cards, although drawing The Lovers can sometiimes indicate the need to make a choice or avoid temptation.

Ok, so today I met with an old high school friend who now does tarot card readings.

Here is what was said:

She asked me to shuffle the cards, and hold them for a moment before giving them to her.  She put them out on a set pattern on the table, and began to give me her reading of them.  Keep in mind, while we are friends, we don't talk often, and she doesn't know a lot of what is going on in my life.  I'll put her comments in bold, and my comments about what is going on with me at the moment will be regular text.

She told me that I was feeling very antsy and frustated about things in my life right now.  That I'm going after things more aggressively than before in an effort to make changes.  I feel that certain things should be in place for me already by this age, and I'm working to put them in place.   I need to focus on what I need to do, but not push too hard, things are going as they should be.

I'm currently living at home with an 8 year old car, and I feel like I really need a place of my own.  About a month ago I've begun going over budgets and pricing apartments and cars in my area.  My plan is to squirrel away as much money as I can as quickly as I can.  Once I hit $24,000.00 in my savings, I will begin the moving out process.  My plan is to have that money there as a buffer, and once my current car goes, I will get a new car, but I don't want to move into my own place with a new car payment hanging over my head.  I've found a few places that I can work into my budget, and it is all falling into place.

She said that she sees me becoming more involved with a bigger social circle, I'll be doing something different that I will enjoy a great deal.  She said that there are great times to come with this, and that I'm going to meet someone who will pique my interest a great deal.  There will be great compatibility there, and a great connection, so much so that it will scare me, and I'll be afraid of losing it.  She said my instinct will be to pull back, and that I shouldn't.  She also saw that there is someone coming to me that will try to take advantage of me, and to make sure I'm very careful with who I choose to date.  She also said I'm too trusting.  She also said regarding my date last night that Patrick and I can be good friends, but she doesn't see this being a very serious thing, he will most likely be someone I can have fun with.

In September I'll be joining a gay bowling league that meets in the next town over.  It will be a great chance to increase my social circle and see what happens.  As for Patrick, as I've said on my blog, after our date neither one of us had a bad time, but we're not sure about where this will go.  There may have been a lack of sparks.

There are changes coming at work that are going to test me.  The dust is going to be stirred up and it will take me a while to adjust to it.  It will be a situation that I can totally control, but I have to learn to be patient and control it the correct way.  There will be temptation to leave the job, however, I have stability there and have to buckle down and do what I need to do.  She also said that there is an employee there that I need to watch out for.  This woman is not malicious, but has low self-esteem and wants to be liked.  If she thinks she can make someone else like her by talking about/giving up information about someone else, she will.

At my job we have Relationship Managers (they bring new business to the bank) and Relationship Assistants (me- we handle the day-to-day needs of the customers) and the ratio suggested by the company is two RMs to every one RA.   We just found out on Friday that one of the RAs (Linda) is retiring.  However, the bosses have decided not to hire a new person to take her place, which will save the company money.  Linda's two RMs have been given to other RAs and I got one of her RMs, one who is very "needy" and will keep me very busy.  Linda's leaving means I'm needed more than ever at my job, but the extra work and stress will test me.   As for the woman she's talking about, I know exactly who she means.

Interesting! Some valuable information for you. There's one disconnect though. She tells you you shouldn't hold back when you meet a certain someone, yet says you're "too trusting." Is this causing you problems?

I'd be interested in knowing exactly which cards were showing and in what order, if you remember. Thanks for sharing!

I haven't given myself a reading for a long time but last weekend when I was in the mountains, I decided to do so. Guess what popped up as the overarching card that affects everything right now?

The 4 of Pentacles can be a card about holding on to things, people, money, or situations longer than is healthy or realistic. ... If any card in the Tarot relates to the old saying about "If you love something set it freeÖ" this is the one.

But why does the card have a pig on it?  ???

The pig is the symbol of greed or miserliness. I really think pigs don't deserve this reputation. I've seen many a fine pig and they are actually quite active and fastidious. We've trained them wrong, since we value the fatty meat so much.

What Chuck says is right on. I was thinking in a more literal way, seeing the card as representing our pig-in-chief!

So, since you are so knowledgeable about tarot, I wonder if you'd share your thoughts on the other three cards in my reading of last weekend, friend Chuck?
