A Relationship Tarot Reading for Jeanne

Tarot readings can give us so much information about ourselves and the situations in our lives. They each have their own rhythm. Sometimes they reference an immediate situation and sometimes they take a while to come to pass. This relationship Tarot reading for Jeanne had elements of both. Much of what was indicated in the cards was taking place during the time of the reading and within a very short time afterwards. Some things took a little longer to come into sharper focus.
Jeanne (not her real name) has given me permission to share her reading. To protect her privacy, the names used here are pseudonyms.


Her question – I have deep feelings for my my male co-worker, David. I feel like sometimes he reciprocates but other times I wonder if it is all in my head? Can you please give me some insight to the situation or future?
To be able to give her more insights into the situation, I broke her question down into two parts;
Question 1 –  Is Jeanne reading David correctly?

Relationship Tarot reading by Mother Tarot - Rohrig Tarot - 3 of Wands - Temperance
1 card draw + Foundation card
Temperance 
David is juggling something in his life, with a foot (and plans) in two worlds. This is an important time for David and will prove to be life changing for him.
Foundation Card – (the foundation of her question-situation)  – 3 Wands (drawn from the bottom of the Tarot deck)
Something has already started moving for David and his path (or project) has begun, but the 3 shows it is still in the creation stage. Threes indicate beginnings; things still in the gestation period and not yet fully materialized.


Question 2 – What is Jeanne not seeing or understanding in David?

Mother Tarot Relationship Tarot Reading - Rohrig Tarot - Wisdom of the Oracle
Outer-Inner Spread + Answer Card + Clarifier Card
Outer aspects of the situation – The Hermit R / 7 Swords R
On the outside, David can be self-absorbed, distant and secretive (The Hermit R). He has baggage he is trying to deal with (7 Swords) as well as coming to terms with something very important in his life. He has a tendency to deal with things privately, especially now.
Inner aspects of the situation – 7 Wands
7 Wands is a leap of faith card. David is contemplating doing exactly that, either with you or in this situation in his life – or both. If it is with you, he is likely trying to figure out how to fit things with you into his other plans. If it is a leap of faith regarding his plans that have been referenced above, he is getting himself ready to take that leap and stand his ground when he does. My sense is that it is the latter.
There are two 7s in this spread. Sevens indicate a waiting period while things finish evolving into completion.
Answer Card – A Change in the Wind12 – (Wisdom of the Oracle deck)
There is a big change coming and an uncertainty about what that change will bring. Things are not always black and white. There has been a shift and you and David may be out of sync in your lives right now, or soon will be. There could be cloudy emotions between you as the change progresses. Be aware of what you need to make yourself happy and do not settle for less. Good will come of this change.
The number of this card (12) adds to 3 (1+2=3), which shows again that something is in a gestation stage.
Clarifier card for the change coming – Flexible19 – (Wisdom of the Oracle deck)
This card speaks of being adaptable yet firmly grounded in who you are and what is most important to you. It speaks of open-mindedness, flexible thoughts and actions, and letting go of rigidity and expectations.
The number of this card (19) adds to 1 (1+9=10 /1+0=1). Ones indicate new beginnings.

Conclusion
Something big and important is happening in David’s life, even if it is not yet obvious to others. Because you care about him, you are going to feel it and perhaps be caught up in it. You will need to be flexible in mind and actions when dealing with what is coming. Bend in the wind so you do not break. Go with the flow rather than fighting it. Be aware and accepting, but always stay true to yourself.


HOW IT TURNED OUT… The cards foretold what was coming for them. Jeanne’s words tell us how it went;
“Thank you, Barbara, for your reading. The person in question shared with me the changes they were going through and, as you predicted, it is bigger than he and I. I hope we do not fall out of sync as we confide in one another and, if nothing romantic ensues, I would at least like to remain friends.
What you wrote shocked me but also made me look again at the situation at hand. This was the first [Tarot] reading I have had that was quite to the point. I prefer to be told rather than skirt around the edges. Instead of a reading of what you found overall,  you gave feedback at each step of the way.  I liked that. It helped me follow along. 

I am glad you gave me a heads up because when David did confide in me,  I was expecting it. I feel that he does care for me more than as a colleague. But with this decision he has to make, he may leave work and if neither of us step forward to say something, I am afraid I will lose him.”
A few months later I wrote to see how she was doing. Here is her response;
“We are both well. You were right; David had quite a large business opportunity and was trying to decide what to do. He has since left our workplace. We are still friends and quite close. Thank you for thinking of us.”

30 Day Tarot Challenge - Week 2 - Sept 6-12, 2020 - The Spacious Tarot

Today begins week 2 of our 30 Day Tarot Challenge for September 2020. Throughout this challenge, I will be using the delightful second edition of  The Spacious Tarot. I love its concept of putting the reader into the images by drawing the traditional Rider-Waite concepts in unexpected ways. This has a tendency to bring out new insights, which is another thing I love about this deck.

This may not apply to something that happens today - I’ll see as the day progresses. I think these cards showed up because of a situation very much on my mind.

Weight Loss Tarot Journal - 10 Pounds Lost! - Ace of Swords - The Druidcraft Tarot

Weight Loss Tarot Journal
~ One month on this plan and 10 pounds down! ~
Ace of Swords
Deck - The Druidcraft Tarot
_________________________________________
I feel like this card. Excaliber was given to me in the form of a new eating plan to cut out flour and sugar. And I have run with it. Three months ago, I discovered Bright Line Eating, a sensible, logical and practical eating plan that had the same goals I did; to cut out sugar and flour. I liked that they had a road map and hand-holding support to get me started and moving along safely.
One month ago, I started on the plan. It has turned out to be much easier to give up my two most powerful trigger foods than I expected. That was a nice surprise. I have had to tweak food volumes down a bit for me, but it has been a huge relief to find I have had no sugar cravings and no slips. It has been easy to stay on the plan, even in the midst of a newly-changed and super busy schedule.
Two days before finishing my first month, I hi…

On the Passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg - Tender Embrace - Oracle of the 7 Energies

September 19, 2020
Processing the loss of beloved Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
deck used -Oracle of the 7 Energies
_________________________________________
I am feeling double gut-punched at last night’s loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and what is coming politically as a result. The vultures are circling. 
I chose this deck today because it taps into healing energies, something much needed here in the USA. Tender Embrace references love and compassion for others, making sure not to forget that for ourselves as well. Justice Ginsburg‘s arena was the legal system and within it she chose a personal path of empathy, care and compassion for her fellow man. Because of her commitment to leveling the playing field for all of us, she left a powerful wake of reverberating effects in our nation. She made a huge, positive difference in our lives.
I see in this card the best way to honor her will be to hug ourselves and each other, recognize our connections, and then pick up her gauntle…

Weight Loss Tarot Journal - Psychic Tarot for the Heart - 5 of Swords - The Fool

November 8, 2019
Give me a message for today
Card Drawn  -  5 of Swords reversed Foundation Card  -  The Fool

Deck  -  Psychic Tarot for the Heart
_________________________________________
When I got on the scale this morning, my weight had gone up a pound and I had lost most of the small progress (1.3 lbs) made so far. Disappointing!  There is a valid reason we are often cautioned not to get on the scale daily - the disappointment can knock us off our plan. I know this and try to guard against that emotional roller coaster. But for me, the daily morning scale ritual also helps me to know how the foods I ate yesterday affect my body today. Analyzing those fluctuations helps me gather information and - being a Gemini - that is an important part of the weight loss learning curve for me. Even knowing all that, though, it is still disappointing to see the weight go up and not down.

The messages in the cards todayaddress all of this.

Weight Loss Tarot Journal - A Weight Loss Plateau Brings a Surprising Revelation - The Hanged Man - 4 of Swords - Queen of Pentacles - Light Seer’s Tarot

August 10, 2020
Weight Loss Tarot Journal
What has caused my weight loss stall?
The Hanged Man
Foundation Cards - 4 of Swords + Queen of Pentacles
Deck used - Light Seer’s Tarot
_________________________________________
Well, doesn’t Tarot have a sense of humor today. I chuckled when I saw The Hanged Man. How appropriate. My 5 pound weight loss last week was wonderful and unexpected but, for the last 3 days, the weight has just been sitting there. I know plateaus happen on a weight loss journey but I didn’t expect one so soon. Am I doing something wrong? I tried thinking what I might have done to cause this but, other than a couple ideas that don’t seem pertinent, I haven’t come up with anything. So I asked the cards to plumb my subconscious for an answer. The Hanged Man shows a stalling, yes, but it also represents coming to a new perspective. What might that perspective be?
The Foundation Cards - 4 of Swords + Queen of Pentacles - both indicate this is a natural process and a time for heali…

The Earth Element in Tarot - Pentacles - Pages - Major Arcana - with Tarot Grand Luxe

It is now autumn in the northern hemisphere and I have been thinking about the seasons and the elements. To me, autumn equates with the earth element and in the Tarot, the earth element is usually represented by the Pentacles (sometimes called coins). The Pages of each Tarot suit and five of the Major Arcana cards  also reflect the earth element energies. I have chosen to use the Tarot Grand Luxe deck by Ciro Marchetti for this post  because its rich and vibrant colors match the glorious tones of autumn.

30 Day Tarot Challenge - Week 4.5 - September 27-30, 2020 - The Spacious Tarot

The last few days of the 30 Day Tarot Challenge! Where does the time go? I thoroughly enjoy our Facebook Tarot group of the same name and our two Tarot challenges each year. We are Tarot readers of all levels and we learn so much through sharing our daily card meanings and how they apply to our lives. It’s a great learning process for all of us.
My daily Challenge cards and interpretations will be included here on my blog and the deck used will continue to be The Spacious Tarot.  I received this deck a couple days before this Challenge began and have been learning it as I go. It is an amazingly accurate deck, with a soft, honest voice, and it has brought out some incredible insights. My thanks to its creators, Carrie Mallon and Annie Ruygt. It is a work of art and depth and I can highly recommend it.
