Tarot: The Fool {How To Let Go}

The Fool by Shadowscapes, The Wild Unknown, Mary-el Tarot and Linestrider, intuitivefish.com

Tarot The Fool, intuitivefish.com

Carefree and Childlike, Authenticity, Inevitability

Remember back when you were a wee thing and you didn’t know how to walk, talk or feed yourself? You weren’t sure which way your arms were going to swing or which sounds would protrude from your vocal chords?

Those were the good ol’ days, weren’t they? As long as you had a caretaker, you didn’t have to worry about money, the in-laws and political elections. You could just be yourself, a baby.

This is the primary message of The Fool. The message is that the collective reality is out of your control. Whatever is going to happen, good or bad, is going to happen. And there isn’t much you can do about it.

So you might as well let go of perceptions of control and flow with the universe. This is the best way to make soul-inspired, authentic decisions anyway.

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: Death {How To Conquer Death}

Death by Thoth Tarot, Steampunk Tarot, Wildwood Tarot and Ananda Tarot, intuitivefish.com

Tarot's Death Card, How To Conquer Death, intuitivefish.com

Impermanence, Corruption, End, Giving Birth To A New Idea Or Creation

When we think of death, we commonly forget the new birth that inevitably goes along with it. Death in one realm means the beginning of life in another.

Energy consciousness cannot die. But we collectively express ourselves through ever-changing experiences formed from a defined set of parameters, also known as our thoughts, or awareness.

We assume that transformation involves a painful death of some kind. But not always. Sometimes it evokes a beautiful, smooth and welcoming transition from one state or perspective to another. In a sense, we die every night at the end of a day, only to wake up brand new in the morning.

We experience all kinds of deaths throughout our lifetimes. Death isn’t a foreign concept but a healthy, natural experience.

Some traditional meanings of Tarot’s Death card define death as fertility, or the perpetual creation of material form which is born from thought.

Could this mean that focusing on the beauty of the new makes letting go of the old equally beautiful? Or maybe there’s no such thing as actual loss – only changing experiences.

Tarot: 8 of Pentacles {How To Do Your Work}

8 of Pentacles by Thoth, Lumina Tarot, The Wild Unknown and Paulina Tarot, intuitivefish.com

Tarot 8 of Pentacles, intuitivefish.com

Above Average Mental Ability or Artistic Skill, Inspired Work, An Artisan

If you’re considering a conventional corporate job or some type of factory work, this is not your card. The 8 of Pentacles is anything but that.

This card is a message to stand strong on your unique and original expertise in world that pressures you to sacrifice it. It could have something to do with researching the esoteric arts, or working in a grassroots organization to help others, or just standing on your non-conforming inner knowing.

There’s still an element of sacrifice in this card. You might make a lot less money, or need to give up a certain reputation. But the sacrifices mean very little compared to the creative and savvy inner drive which inspires you.

Whatever is your unconventional knowledge and skill, you’ll need some guts to stick with it, and to stay focused on quality over quantity.

Tarot: Ace of Wands {How To Start Something New}

Ace of Wands by Unknown Artist [Please contact me if you know the name of this deck], The Wild Unknown, Druidcraft Tarot, and Shadowscapes, intuitivefish.com

Tarot Ace of Wands, How To Start Something New, intuitivefish.com

Accepting Limitations, A Creative Impulse, Something Innovative and New

One of the most difficult challenges for the soul is accepting the limitations of the body.

It requires hard work to earn a living. It takes time to get places. Dishes must be washed. The body must be cared for. We need to listen and communicate with others. Caution must be exercised around danger.

On the other hand, there’s a certain revelation that occurs when a soul finally does accept physical limitations and constraints, and uses them to do something new and creative. This is also the meaning of the Ace of Wands.

It’s about accepting the rules of the game but also playing the game from the heart, with guidance from the soul and higher aspirations. It’s about a beautiful new synthesis between the higher realms and the lower dimensions, between limitation and expansion.

Tarot: 2 of Wands {How To Get Unstuck}

Tarot 2 of Wands, How To Get Unstuck, intuitivefish.com

Material Pressures, Music and Art, Creative Projects and Innovation

In a consumerist society, the way one survives is by going to school, learning a trade, getting a job and making their fortune, right?

Not so fast. Sure, many make their riches this way, but are they truly rich? The undeniable fact is that capital not only brings fortune, it carries with it a heavy weight of responsibility, or a load on the back.

The heavy pressures of the material world is the main subject of the 2 of Wands. Thankfully, this card has more to say about that.

The 2 of Wands is about capital but it’s equally about music, art and artistic ability, including intellectual art. The artist has a significant advantage if they choose to live by it.

Creativity requires patience as well as freedom of the mind so that inventive juices can flow. Sure, money’s necessary, but so is freedom for that energy current to stay in motion.

The wisdom of patience allows artistic inspiration to flow through you and empower you. Then the pressure of responsibilities becomes your fuel rather than a burden. By letting go of the weight, you can soar. It’s your choice.

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.

Tarot: 6 of Swords {How To Venture Out}

The 6 of Swords by The Darkness of Light Tarot, azurylipfe at Deviant Art, Shadowscapes, and Krista Gibbard's Ostara Tarot, intuitivefish.com

Tarot 6 of Swords, intuitivefish.com

A Vision From Higher Realms, Message Materialized, Venturing Out

Esoterically, the 6 of Swords is about mediumship, or the pathway through which higher knowledge can come through, such as tarot. It concerns a vision from the higher realms to manifest in the material world.

We can’t deny there’s some degree of a foreboding energy to the 6 of Swords. We often associate the unknown with darkness.

Still, anything terrible that might occur is ultimately on your side, can be used for your benefit, and you’ll be glad you ventured out.

Whatever the case, it’s time to leave your comfort zone. It might feel a little scary, or a lot scary. You might have to learn as you go, by trial and error. The path might lead you further or deeper into something than you planned to go.

But you’re ready for this. All of your experiences thus far have prepared you. It’s time to let go of self-doubt, fear and other energy blocks, trust your intuition, and follow wherever it leads.

Tarot: 6 of Pentacles {How To Ensure Prosperity}

6 of Pentacles by Steampunk Tarot, Chrysalis Tarot, Fountain Tarot and Shadowscapes, intuitivefish.com

Tarot 6 of Pentacles, intuitivefish.com

Staying True To Your Principles, Acting from the Heart, Enjoying the Present Moment

If you add together passion plus self-confidence plus action, what do you get? Success. This is the 6 of Pentacles.

Most of us go about our day doing our duties and our work while not thinking much of it. But this rarely leads to the results we want.

The key to this card is putting your heart into action. It means doing something you feel good about, and that aligns with your principles.

If you’ve discovered your true passion and can enjoy putting it into action, you’ve already met with success. Success is never in the past or future. It’s always in the present moment.
