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.


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.

Queen of Pentacles
The receptive aspect of Earth, the Queen refers to you, or someone who strongly influenced your life in the situation in question, but does not have to be female. Her outdoor throne, surrounded by Earth’s prosperity and abundance, denotes that she takes charge of money matters in a cautious and practical manner, and that she is successful in her business dealings. Her productivity and creativity are symbolized by the appearance of several blooming plants, and the hare, traditionally associated with fertility. This person valued her self-sufficient independence, and worked hard to maintain her “creature comforts”.


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.

Ten of Swords
The swords stuck in the person’s back symbolize failed plans, loss, and defeat, but the sheer number of swords, ten, can indicate over-dramatization of the situation. It probably is not as bad as it seems to the one who is in it. The water is calm, the sky on the horizon is light, and it is the darkest hour that is passing. Soon, the dawn will come, and a new beginning with it, so do not lose hope.


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.

Eight of Swords
Oppression is symbolized by the Eight of Swords. You will feel trapped and alone, unable to see your way through to a solution. The castle in the background suggests the authority figure that you may feel is keeping you down. The swords are the opposition that could keep you where you are. Look closer. Will you be helping to keep yourself there? Notice that the woman in the picture does not have her feet tied, nor are the swords blocking her way. You will be free to go. The oppressor in your life may actually be real, but you must not give away your power. When you feel that it’s time to move on, trust your inner voice.
