These are the cards that the Tarot has drawn for you. You may want to save or print this page if you would like to ponder their messages later.

Past

The Past position in the reading refers to recent events and challenges that just took place, things that lead up to the present situation, and your role in them.

Five of Cups
The Five of Cups suggests that you have recently been upset over a loss or disappointment. The three cups spilled at the man’s feet in the picture indicates the loss you’ve experienced. You may not be aware of the strong support system that remains, indicated by the two cups still standing. Your friends and loved ones have been offering their support but you have focused too much on the disappointments. The river in the image suggests the troubled emotions that have made you feel lost and distant; you have cut yourself off from the joy and love associated with home. Remember to notice the bridge that isn’t far from view. It can lead you home again, into the arms of your loved ones.

Present

The Present position in the reading represents what is happening right now. Typically, this is what triggers you to seek out a reading. This card can often help you to understand what steps to take next.

Page of Swords
Frequently, the Page of Swords refers to you, or someone who strongly influences your life in the situation in question, but does not have to be male. He seeks higher ground, using his standpoint to master difficulties. He watches for trouble over his shoulder. In the card, the wind blows the trees and his hair, symbolizing changing circumstances, unpredictable behaviors, and wavering opinions in the current situation. Flexibility and adaptability are key.

Future

The Future position in teh reading describes what is just around the corner. It’s an official “heads up” about where the situation is heading and how you may navigate through it towards the best possible outcome.

The Devil
The Devil is the sixteenth card in the Major Arcana, and is given the number 15 to indicate the Magician (1) using the (5) elements (earth, air, fire, water, and spirit) for materialistic purposes. Note the Devil’s four fingers and thumb held up (5), while the cudgel (1) aims the power down at the earth...the reverse position of the Magician. The inverted pentagram on the Devil’s forehead is a symbol indicating spirit submerged in and subjugated by matter, or the material world. The Devil presides over a couple from a superior position, in a perversion of the trio on the Lovers card. The couple remain chained to his solid block of stone, though the shackles are loose. They are naked, vulnerable—and yet their faces remain calm. They are entranced by the promises of superficial gain that the belief in the Devil has given them. They remain chained to their worldly desires, believing that only what is concrete and physical is important.

When the Devil appears in your future, it can indicate pettiness, materialism, and base desires. In the Christian faiths, the Devil is the enemy. Like Lucifer, whose vanity and conceit cost him God’s favor, the Devil in the Tarot can be a warning to the selfish and egotistical. Overall, the Devil indicates that you will need to take a long, hard look at your darker self, and a reminder that if pushed to the side and allowed to fester in darkness, your dark side will only grow more grotesque, and erupt when you least expect it, or when you just plain lose control. If you fear that you have not fully accepted the parts of yourself you dislike, don’t lock them away. Bring them, slowly and safely, into the light. It will break the chains, and set you free.
