Tarot: 2 of Cups {How To Attract A Soul-Union}

2 of Cups from Shadowscapes, Paulina Cassidy, Wildwood Tarot and Deviant Moon Tarot, intuitivefish.com

Tarot 2 of Cups, intuitivefish.com

Soul-union, Friendship, Passion, Making Love

The 2 of Cups is basically love in action. It’s the coming together or meeting of two souls in the physical realm through tangible action.

This could mean a simple kind act, an act of hospitality, a platonic friendship, or a deeply passionate and committed love affair.

This presents a wide range of possibilities. We’d probably like to know which one the 2 of Cups is referring to. But this card offers us no such luxury.

The only factors we know for sure about the 2 of Cups is that there’s a consensual attraction in this soul-union. And it is a welcomed, beautiful treasure. There’s nothing of a curse in this card, only favor.

Golden Dawn defines this card as:

“Harmony born of a deep and abiding wisdom. A marriage in the Visible or Invisible World as an expression of harmony, plenty.”

Tarot: The Empress {The Desire To Create}

The Empress by The Victoria Regina Tarot, [If You Know The Name Of This Deck, Please Contact Me], jankolas at Deviant Art and Lunatic Tarot, intuitivefish.com

The Empress, The Desire To Create, intuitivefish.com

Passion, The Desire to Create, Potential for Development 

The Empress relates to the desire to move out of your comfort zone into the unknown to experience new possibilities.

There’s a build-up of passion erupting into the energy force to expand your horizons. The Empress is so ripe there’s a rush of energy flowing in the direction of some new intention, endeavor or enterprise. She wants to blaze a new trail, or reproduce herself through a new creation.

If you’re thinking of insemination, that would be the basic meaning of The Empress. A passionate, spasmodic release of energy implants a seed in the womb of potential.

You might not have a clear sense of purpose or direction yet. You don’t have all the details. You simply have a desire to design, grow, or develop something tangible when the time is right. You’re ready to take action, make new connections, and prove your worth to the world. It’s time to venture out into more sensual ways of abundance. What’s your inner drive leading you toward? What’s your life passion?

Reversed: Indecision, irresolution, uncertainty, wavering, hesitation, apathy, disinterest, suppression, blocked emotions, creative block, action or reaction, a need to open up to your true desires or clear an energy block

Health, Wellness and Body Image: You might be full of life force energy or maybe you have an excess of energy which can be used as motivation for your physical health. There might be a need to release pressure. Channel excess energy into getting physically healthy or into developing your sexiest body image. Some tarot readers interpret The Empress as pregnancy, or it could be the desire for pregnancy, such as taking initiative to increase fertility.

Occupation and Finances: You might not know all the details or have a clear sense of direction just yet, but you’re ready to venture into the unknown to begin a new enterprise, grow your net worth, or expand your potential. Get ready to blaze a new trail or enter new territory as it concerns your occupation. It’s time to move out of the familiar, and into your life passion.

Relationships: You might have to step out of your comfort zone, but the time is ripe to put yourself out there, initiate a new relationship or take an existing relationship to a new level. If you’re inquiring about a relationship, there’s potential for new development. This card could also indicate sex desire or a desire to have a baby.

10 of Cups by Artist Unknown [If you know the name of this artist please contact me], Ghosts and Spirits Tarot, The Mythic Tarot, and The Golden Tarot, intuitivefish.com

Tarot 10 of Cups, intuitivefish.com

Physical Comfort, Safety and Security, Community, Feeling “At Home”

Remove the soul from the body and the physical realm becomes empty. Remove the body from the soul and it becomes expressionless. You need both your body and your soul to attain ultimate bliss and tranquility.

The 10 of Cups is the soul enjoying sensual pleasures of the body and the material world with others. This is the true sense of home.

The 10 of Cups is the physical foundation and structure through which your higher bliss can flow through you. 

Home is where you feel secure and free to be your raw, authentic self. You can trust those in your circle will always be there for you, come high waters or low. Your influence and unique contributions are valued.

The 10 of Cups is about finding safety in a community, and feeling secure in your love life and social life. It’s about enjoying the comforts of a physical home, market town or society in which you live.

Tarot: 7 of Wands {How To Integrate With Others}

7 of Wands by Artist Unknown [If you know the name of this deck, please contact me}, Steampunk Tarot, Dark Fairytale Tarot, and San Antonio Tarot, intuitivefish.com

Tarot 7 of Wands, How To Integrate With Others, intuitivefish.com

Negotiation and Contracts, Collaboration, Partnership, A Marriage Proposal

For those on the awakening path, one of the most difficult challenges is integrating the soul with the material world.

We’re talking specifically about society’s standards, laws and traditions. But we’re also talking about the soul working with these customs, and thriving under them.

How do you stay true to your carefree soul while constricted under social rules of conduct, regulations, formalities and policies? How do you bring together in harmony the actual, true self and the material, non-self?

It’s about relationships, or harmoniously working with others for the benefit of all.

If there’s more than one person in existence, efficient organization of information and entertainment, as well as a means of measurement is necessary for everyone to survive well – or not so well – under continuously changing global circumstances.

This is the primary subject of the 7 of Wands.

Tarot: Strength {How To Channel Your Power}

Strength by Zen-Master at Deviant Art, Silver Era Tarot, Tyrantx at Deviant Art, and Steampunk Tarot, intuitivefish.com

Tarot Strength, How to Channel Your Power, intuitivefish.com

Soft Control, Magical Power, A Liberated Higher Nature

The meaning of this tarot card is clear enough by its name: Strength. But what kind of strength are we talking about? And how do we obtain it?

Delving deep into its esoteric roots, Strength is the result of previously conquering all the things that stand in the way of experiencing love.

This includes our lower instincts. And our astrological energies, some of which we’re here to overcome. We master our lower energies by accepting our pain, contemplating its unique value, and finding our self-empowerment through it.

When we let go of fear and resistance to existence and who we are – both our higher and lower natures – we disarm all opposition. Our soul is then free to fuse with our natural personality.

We discover our power by letting go of perceptions of control.

Then our work and mission in life become easy rather than burdens. We can enjoy each present moment knowing we’re interconnected with all, rather than remain at animosity with the world, ourself and each other. This is real power.

Tarot: King of Pentacles {How To Maintain Integrity}

King of Pentacles by Deviant Moon Tarot, [Unknown - please message me if you know the name of this deck], Sepia Stains Tarot and Steampunk Tarot, intuitivefish.com

Tarot King of Pentacles, intuitivefish.com

Business Integrity, Favor or Protection From Someone In An Influential Position, Prosperity in Love or Wealth

It might be difficult to imagine a younger or youngish wealthy male who’s some kind of a power figure as being honest, loyal and sincere…. But this is the King of Pentacles.

His intentions are respectable, reliable, conscious and forthright. He’s intelligent and he’s a natural born leader.

If you know someone like this, consider yourself in favor with the gods – especially when it comes to love, business or health. Your life will prosper in wealth, luxury or all around goodness and well-being with this influential energy.

Maybe he’s an investor, business coach, doctor or spiritual guide. Or maybe he’s simply someone who has built their wealth or intelligence on warmth, honesty and principle. You’ll want to seek out this person’s assistance to support you in some kind of an endeavor.

But you have to reach out to him, because he’ll never come to you. He only gives his energy to those who know they’re worthy of it. This is also how he maintains his integrity. And that’s a good lesson for all of us.

Tarot: 4 of Wands {How To Form An Alliance}

The 4 of Wands by Rowan Tarot, Shadowscapes, Infinite Visions and Fenestra Tarot, intuitivefish.com

Tarot 4 of Wands, How To Form An Alliance, intuitivefish.com

Shared Memories, Common Motives, Family-spirit or Social Alliance

The 4 of Wands relates to a group of people, such as a traditional family, network, reunion, clique, club, or social group. It could also refer to a faction, union, team, military division or political party. It could be a circle of friends, or the crowd you run with.

Members might gather together because of shared memories, or because of a common objective or mission. There might be official meetings or social gatherings.

Whatever the purpose of a gathering, members feel relaxed, comfortable, and at home. It’s familiar.

Overall, this card is about the coming together of ideas or common mottos or motives in order to share in ones’s repertoire, or to advance by way of alliance.

Tarot: The Moon {How To Traverse The Darkness}

The Moon by The Starchild Tarot, Steampunk Tarot, Silver Era Tarot and Ellygator on Deviant Art, intuitivefish.com

Tarot The Moon, intuitivefish.com

Uncertainty, Dreams and Fantasies, Emotional Changes

“Servile spirits (the dog), savage souls (the wolf), and crawling creatures (the crayfish) are all present watching the fall of the soul, hoping to aid in its destruction.” – Papus

As we evolve along the most challenging phase of tarot’s major arcana, we’re not yet “out of the woods” when we reach The Moon. In fact, it might be our darkest night of the soul yet. Thankfully, it’s also a sign that the golden dawn is just around the corner.

The Moon is about the feminine energy within us all, or the dark (hidden), intuitive and emotional beauty of the soul.

But it can also represent the final passing away of attachment to temporal experiences, so that we finally awaken to the more solid eternal bliss and tranquility of the spirit.

The only way to get there is to pass through and embrace the valley of the shadow of death. In other words, it’s okay to feel you’re drowning in the unstable and uncertain realm of feelings, emotions, sensitivities, traumas, dramas or fears. There are ways to love your darkness and turn it into poetic beauty rather than resist it, which only empowers and prolongs it.

The objective is the final letting go of self-identification with the mere passings of this dream world we call the physical realm. You might find certain unevolved persons in your life to instigate or ensure that destruction.

Tarot: 9 of Swords {How To Lighten Up}

9 of Swords by Pierpont Morgan Bergamo, Illuminati Tarot, Thoth and Crystal Visions, intuitivefish.com

Tarot 9 of Swords, intuitivefish.com

Rigid Attitudes and Beliefs, Being Judgmental, Intolerant, Religious or Meticulous

The best thing we can say about this card is that it might indicate a priest or monk, or someone who is conscientious, or precise, meticulous, or punctual. But more likely we’re talking about extreme self-denial of material pleasures, asceticism or rigid beliefs.

Of course, if one person feels they can’t enjoy the pleasures of life, they aren’t going to be too happy with those who do. This is often when being judgmental comes into play, and we all know how it feels to be irrationally and unreasonably judged by others.

How easy it is for our mind to think we hold the truth and everyone else is wrong. This is just a self-sabotaging defense mechanism that keeps us from enjoying intimacy with others and life itself.

Sure, there’s risk involved by opening ourself up to different perspectives, people and experiences. We still need to exercise caution. But the only way to make it through life is to maintain a loose grip.
