Card Reading for Week of January 4, 2021

Three of Rods, Reversed; Nine of Cups; Six of Swords, Reversed

Let’s take a look at our reversed cards first. The Three of Rods represents business, particularly a negotiation or a new undertaking The reversed position indicates that someone you are dealing with has ulterior motives and can’t be trusted—which is pretty much par for the course in any sort of business dealings these days, sad to say. The Six of Swords represents a journey, literal or otherwise; reversed, it indicates a stalemate or delay in solving problems. Looking at these two cards together, we see that it’s time to move very cautiously. I’d actually advise giving up and crawling back under the covers for now, if it weren’t for the central card, the Nine of Cups. This card indicates success, good health, and material prosperity. So now, at the start of a new calendar year, might just be the time to consider making a new start or changing something. Just remember to move slowly, and make sure you have all the facts before coming to any sort of decision.

Card Reading for Week of December 28, 2020

Seven of Swords, Reversed; Three of Swords; the Hanged Man, Reversed

The Seven of Swords signifies partial success; in its reversed position, it indicates questionable advice, arguments, or gossip which one must be cautious of. The Three of Hearts can represent delay and disappointment. It can also represent separation and sorrow. The Hanged Man is the card of transition, but also of being “suspended” between two states. In addition, it can represent a need for sacrifice—reversed, it suggests those sacrifices are not yet being made.

As we come to the end of what has unarguably been a terrible year for most people, we need to prepare ourselves for the hard work of rebuilding and change. Just turning a page on the calendar isn’t going to alter anything in and of itself. We cannot just hope for change; we need to be the change.

Love to you all, Angela
