Tarot Reading - March 28, 2021

I got a really intense urge to pull out my tarot cards today. I haven't touched my cards in months so this was a really profound feeling for me. Information is pulled from Biddy Tarot.

Here's what I pulled:

Queen of Cups

UPRIGHT: Compassionate, caring, emotionally stable, intuitive, inflow.

The Queen of Cups says you are highly intuitive, creative, and in flow with the surrounding energies. You know when something is ‘off’, and you pay attention to this, even if it doesn’t make rational sense.

When the Queen of Cups appears in a Tarot reading, you are being asked to trust your intuition and pay attention to your feelings and emotions. Lead with your heart, not your head. Be open to receive the intuitive messages flowing to you, be it through your dreams, meditation or visualization. And ‘feel the feels’, even if those feelings are tricky or challenging. You are stronger than you know.

High Priestess (Reversed)

REVERSED: Secrets, disconnected from intuition, withdrawal and silence

The reversed High Priestess calls on you to be still and direct your attention inward to listen to your voice and wisdom. You may be swayed by other people’s opinions or swept up in their drama when what you really need to do is focus on what is right for you. It is time to get quiet and withdraw yourself from the external world to observe what your inner guidance is sharing with you now. Have faith in the Universe and allow yourself to be in flow with its energies. Surrender and let go.

Think of the High Priestess as the calm center inside of you that is untouched by your external world and trust that she is always there when you need her. Whenever you worry that things are just getting too crazy, find a quiet space and meditate so you can hear her voice. 

Finally, the secretive nature of the High Priestess may suggest gossip and hidden agendas. Others may be keeping information from you or talking about you behind your back and sharing mistruths. Rather than making assumptions or diving into the depths of paranoia, have an open and honest conversation to surface and address these secrets.

Five of Wands (Reversed)

REVERSED: Inner conflict, conflict avoidance, tension release

The Five of Wands reversed is like a sigh of relief after a struggle. You are no longer up against so much competition and can just ‘be.’ On a more personal level, you have worked through your anger and hostility and feel more secure in your relationships. You do not have to prove yourself anymore.

Ace of Swords

UPRIGHT: Breakthroughs, new ideas, mental clarity, success

See this card as a sign of encouragement. It says your mind is in 'expansion mode’. You are open to embracing new ideas, craving stimulation, and you’ll jump at the next opportunity to learn something new. You thrive on new ideas, inspiration, original thinking, and vision, and you are excited to pursue new opportunities that draw upon your creative and intellectual abilities.

As an Ace, you are at the beginning of the journey, but you can sense the energy building up and can’t wait to get started. If you channel this energy into the right moves, then you will succeed in your endeavors.

As with all Swords cards, the Ace of Swords represents power; but the sword is a double-edged blade, implying that it can create and destroy. The message is clear: with power comes responsibility. It will be up to you how you leverage the opportunity for the greater good of all rather than for selfish or aggressive power. You will need a strong heart and mind and need to see how to best use your power for the service of others and yourself.

The Ace of Swords also encourages you to pursue the truth of the matter and to find justice. You have great clarity on the situation and can now argue your point of view with truth and conviction. In other words, you are ready for battle.

Major themes of this pull:

I am intuitive of my surroundings and the things going on around me. It is possible that my strong feelings of deceit and secrets are accurate. My intuition is strong and is my biggest asset and I need to stay calm to keep that intuitive voice loud and clear. A struggle has been released and new energy is building and new opportunities are on the horizon. But, I must stay grounded in order to serve myself and others and raise everyone up. 

How this reading applies to my life right now:

I feel like this pull is telling me to keep to myself and that my intuition is very spot on right now. I've had the feeling that someone around me has alternate motives, and that makes me really, really nervous. Maybe it's PTSD from earlier events of this year but I think it's best that I keep my head down and just keep moving and not get myself involved in any more drama. I have been feeling very quiet and introspective the last few days so I'm taking this as a sign to run with it and get my shit done and to continue to go inwards. 

There has been a huge release of tension and it has me feeling very light and airy and like I can finally be myself and not have to be scared to speak up and be the person that I really am. It's been one of the heaviest weights lifted off of me in a long time and has been a good thing for many people. 

New energies and opportunities are definitely on the rise with events coming back - which are a huge factor in my field of work. Being able to socialize and network in person will definitely open more doors and deepen so many of the relationships that I've made over the past year while being quarantined. 

There's a possibility that I might be moving into some new roles with my job soon, thus opening the opportunity for more power and for me handling the double-edged sword. I can definitely see how I would need to be cognizant of my power and what I use it and that I need to use it for good of not just myself, but for others as well. 

All in all, this was a very accurate and reassuring pull. The universe had to tell me that I was right about some things that I was feeling and what I need to do in order to succeed over the next few weeks. 

Bullet points of what I need to do: (because I won't want to go back and read all of that lol)

  • keep to myself and keep going inward
  • trust my intuition - it's my biggest asset
  • meditate to stay in touch with my inner calm
  • be wary of people who may have hidden motives
  • embrace new ideas and keep expanding
  • prepare for changing and building energies 
  • lean into and embrace the recent release of tension and hostility
  • use my abilities to serve myself and others
