Daily Tarot Reading for 10-16-2018 (Fool’s Journey)


The Tarot cards for today are the Fool, Death, and the World. I think it’s remarkable that these cards came out together in that order, so I’m going to spend a little more time on this reading than usual. So bear with me!

Minor Arcana
As you may know, the Tarot deck that I use (which is one of the most popular Tarot decks and has been around a long time) has 78 cards. Fifty-six of the cards are made up of the four suits (Wands, Pentacles, Swords, and Cups). As a group, these 56 cards are called the Minor Arcana. Generally speaking, the Minor Arcana represents things that happen during everyday life and temporary events.

Major Arcana
The other 22 cards as a group are called the Major Arcana. They are numbered from 0 to 21. In a reading, they usually point to major turning points in a person’s life or an important highlight.

When the 22 cards in the Major Arcana are laid spread out one by one in numerical order, it is said to tell the story of the the Fool’s Journey. It starts with the 0 card (the innocent Fool) who begins his spiritual journey by learning how to use the four elements with the 1 card (the Magician), then learning how to rely on intuition with the 2 card (the High Priestess), then learning how to deal with raw masculine energy with the 3 card (the Emperor), and so on.

The Fool’s Journey
In my mind, the three cards I pulled today  is a perfect summary of the Fool’s Journey — starting at the beginning of the Major Arcana with card 0, the Fool, onward to the middle of the Major Arcana with card 13, Death (which is a symbol of transformation), and ending with the last card of the Major Arcana, card 21, the World (which symbolizes the successful completion of a major milestone).

Today’s Reading
Astrologically speaking, we have been dealing with some potent energies this year, including lots of retrogrades and a powerful series of eclipses. Like the Fool, we could not know exactly how these energies would affect our lives, but we carried on. It is very likely that your life has changed in important ways this year, both outwardly and in the way you think and feel inside. This is what the Death card represents — important change in your life. The World card suggests that you have come to understand what these changes mean and as a result, you are wiser.

Even as you celebrate the completion of this cycle, know that the cycle always begins again. There is always something new to learn and aspects of ourselves to discover. Like peeling an onion, there is always another layer.

Have a great day.

Daily Tarot Reading for 10-9-2018


The Tarot cards for today are the Fool and the Seven of Swords. Last night’s new moon, as is true for all new moons, signals a time of new beginnings. One of the best ways to approach new beginnings is to be like the character in the Fool card — that is, to have an open mind, to be optimistic, and to know that you are protected. New experiences further your growth as a person. Unfortunately, as the Seven of Swords reminds us, not everyone is one the same path as you.  Some people have ill intentions toward you and some people may not realize that their chaotic energy is a distraction in your life. Be aware of this dynamic, without judgment. Serve as an example to others of integrity by  continuing to follow your bliss.

Have a great day.

The Tarot card for today is the Fool. Let’s play a game. Here are the rules:

  • As you go through your day, approach every situation with an open mind and no expectations.
  • Don’t assume you know what is going to happen at any given moment.
  • Put aside preconceived notions.
  • Don’t try to guess what other people are thinking.
  • Turn off your bias against race, gender, age, body type, social status, etc.
  • Don’t allow what happened a year ago, yesterday, or five minutes ago to influence what you do right now.
  • Breathe each breath like it’s your first and your last.

Have a magical day.

Daily Tarot Reading – Extended Weekend Report 7-13 to 7-15-2018


The Tarot cards for today, Saturday, and Sunday are the Fool and the Seven of Wands. After last night’s new moon/solar eclipse, new beginnings and opportunities lie ahead. The Fool card reminds us to approach these opportunities with an open mind and open heart. Be optimistic.  Change, even good change, can be scary, and sometimes it is hard to believe that the nice things that happen to us are real. Like the character on the Seven of Wands card, fight through these feelings of fear and caution, whether these are based on real or imagined threats. When it is all said and done, you will be victorious. Enjoy the journey.

Have a fabulous weekend.

Daily Tarot Reading for 8-31-2017


Today’s card is the Fool. This indicates a fresh start in an important area of your life. It could also mean that you are looking at a situation in your life with new eyes. You are willing to let go of old baggage that was weighing you down. You are optimistic and there is a spring in your step. You are taking calculated risks, letting your heart lead the way.

As you may know, the character shown on the Fool card is no “fool.” Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to realize what the Fool knows to be true:  The key to any spiritual journey is to open your heart and free your mind to fully experience this adventure called life. Rid yourself of fear and expectation. Open your senses to the beauty around you. Smell the roses. Don’t be afraid to do something you have never done before. Trust your instincts and intuition.

Have a great day.
