Free Daily Tarotscope — Oct 30, 2015 — Temperance



Today’s card — Temperance from the Medieval Enchantment Tarot –– indicates a need to go with the flow and to find ways to bring the conflicting desires of your being back toward the center.

Today’s Sun trine Neptune should make that a little easier. The Sun / Neptune aspect is all about aligning yourself with higher spiritual realms.

The Temperance card speaks of searching within yourself for that wellspring of inner grace and finding a way to bring the good and bad, light and dark, happy and sad back in to balance.

This card is called “Art” in some decks. It speaks of the unique creative forces that each of us possess. It speaks of seeking out symmetry and harmony. And it speaks of integrating the opposing areas of your life into one big calm, peaceful and harmonious medium.

In what areas of your life are you too inflexible, too rigid and too unwilling to hear another’s point of view? Your challenge will be to overcome those impediments and to integrate the opposing forces in your life.

The Temperance card refers to bringing the opposing facets of your personality (or your relationships, or your desires) into alignment by finding the perfect middle ground. It represents peace and harmony, synthesis and equilibrium, moderation and restraint.

As you can see from the imagery in this card, nothing needs be sacrificed in attaining that balance. Just remember to rise above whatever situations in your life that are pulling you down, without rising so high that you neglect them or fail to take advantage of opportunities to learn from or grow from them.

Six of Staves

Today is a day of rewards and validation. It’s a day of being recognized for all that you’ve accomplished on the job or in your personal relationships.

You may have been putting a lot of effort into your work and not even realizing that others have taken notice. Or you could be unexpectedly pulled aside by a loved one, just to tell you how much you’re valued.

While the external props may not be as dramatic as they are in this card — from Nigel Jackson’s beautiful Medieval Enchantment Tarot — you’re bound to be seen as someone that people want to know and get close to.

The Six of Staves is a card of appreciation and admiration. You “win” something and have earned the right to be satisfied with the spoils of your victory. This isn’t about ego or conceit and it’s never at someone else’s expense. There’s a strong sense of being supported and lifted up by others who rejoice right along with you.

You could be in line for a promotion or award at work. You could be given the ok to go ahead with a project you’ve been excited about. Or it may be as simple as pat on the back and some words of encouragement by those who look up to you.

Whatever form this takes for you today, know that you’ve earned it and that you deserve it. It may just give you the incentive to keep shooting for the stars and manifesting your highest goals.

Today you may find yourself juggling the different compartments of your life as you struggle to maintain your equilibrium.

You’re going to need to be flexible and adaptable, and will need to find ways to shift from one task to another without losing focus.

You may also be weighing the pros and cons of an important decision. Whether this is tied to business, relationships, money, or even a new way thinking, it’s bound to be weighing heavily on you.

It could be work and responsibilities vs. pleasure and play. It could be head vs. heart or relationships vs. autonomy. Or it could even be up time (productivity) vs. down time (rest). Whatever it is, you don’t want to be so focused on weighing your options that you lose sight of what’s going on around you.

In this version of the Two of Coins — from Nigel Jackson’s beautiful Medieval Enchantment Tarot — the coins seem to be levitating above the woman’s uplifted hands.

They look identical, and this may refer to their level of importance in the realm of larger considerations. But as far as what you want to accomplish today (as opposed to what needs to get done), they’re probably not equal at all.

You’ll have to figure out what’s most important to you and give that areas more consideration. As Coins also relate to money, you may be trying to decide where to invest your assets. Or you may find yourself juggling finances, as in figuring out which bills to pay and which ones can wait.

Think about what you need to balance in your own life today as opposed to what deserves your undivided attention. It may require levels of skill and dexterity that you didn’t even know you had. If you can pull it off though and find ways to satisfy one area without neglecting the other, it should be tremendously rewarding for you in the end.

Nine of Cups

This should be a calm, peaceful easy day for you with the Sun sextiling Jupiter and the Moon moving into gentle, compassionate Pisces.

The Nine of Cups — this version from Nigel Jackson’s  Medieval Enchantment Tarot — is a card of contentment and complacency. Happiness, fulfillment, Love.

Everything about this card is pleasant and peaceful. There’s a rainbow spanning the sky and stars poking through the billowing clouds. An ornate and graceful heron flies over a kingdom below, while a tiny sailboat sets off for parts unknown.

Think about what makes you happy and chances are good it’s the simple things in life. Home, family, friends, health, material comforts and peace of mind. This is what the Nine of Cups is all about and if you’re not where you want to be just yet, think of ways to change that.

The Nine Cups in this card are always full. They’re filled with love, gratitude and abundance, which are endlessly intertwined. They’re filled with hopes and dreams and miracles which are yours for the taking.

The Nine of Cups is called “Happiness” in some decks and the “Wish card” in others. But those aren’t always the same thing. So be careful what you wish for as it may or may not bring you happiness.

The Nine of Cups is a card of satisfaction, fulfillment and contentment. It speaks of being more than just satisfied with your lot in life, but also feeling truly blessed and grateful with where you are.

Take some time to think about what you really want today — and don’t forget to be grateful for what you already have. There’s an intricate balance between gratitude and personal fulfillment, so make sure you’re putting enough energy and effort into both.

The World

The World

Today’s card — the World — refers to the process of coming full circle, tying up lose ends and preparing to complete an important life cycle.

In this version of the card, we see a woman wearing nothing but a smile and a ribbon, which is strategically draped around her torso. She holds a crown made of leaves in one hand and scepter in the other.

A scattering of gold stars dot the landscape behind her, while the corners — as with many traditional Rider-Waite style tarot decks — contain the astrological representations of the four fixed signs. There’s a human, and eagle, a bull and a lion.

But look closely, each of them are sporting angel wings and are retrieving knowledge from sacred texts. These are the beasts referenced in the book of Revelations, surrounding God’s throne.

Think about the imagery in this card. The woman has stripped herself of all pretense. She’s removed her crown along with her clothing and the ribbon itself contains all of the colors or the rainbow — a nod to her acceptance of the vast array of experience the Universe has to offer. There’s also mention of a rainbow above God’s throne in the book of Revelations.

Apart from those references though, the message behind the world card is best received with insight and awareness. Ask yourself: “What is is I’ve learned through all that I’ve experienced in this chapter of my life?” and “What must I now give up in order to start anew?” If you can answer those two questions with honesty and humility, you’ll be able to carry those lessons into the next chapter.

Fortitude - Nigel Jackson tarot


Today’s card — Fortitude — refers to the inner reserves of strength, courage and discipline that are called for in moments of fear or uncertainty.

You may be feeling hesitant about something that threatens to disrupt your daily routine. Or you may be trying to put on a brave face and tackle something that scares you or takes you outside of your comfort zone.

Interviewing for a job. Making a presentation. Confronting an adversary. Expressing emotions. In other words, anything that’s been known to trigger fear or anxiety for you in the past.

This card is called “Strength” in most decks. It refers to the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of strength, such as willpower and self-restraint.

It’s about taking charge of your life and taking back your power — over your fears and compulsions and ultimately your destiny.

Look at the images in this card. Notice how gently the woman strokes the lion’s back and how he reciprocates by lapping at her hand.

This is the essence of the Strength card. It’s about taming the beast within while at the same time lauding its virtues.

Four of Swords

Today you may be ready to get away from it all. You could be feeling the strains of mundane chores and responsibilities; or maybe you just long to escape from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life.

The Four of Swords encourages you to disengage from all the noise and distractions around you and  to find your strength through recovery.

It could be as simple as getting out of town for the weekend to relax and recharge your batteries. And it could be as profound as going on a life-altering pilgrimage or spiritual retreat.

The figure in this card rests peacefully under a starry sky, He’s tucked in to his own personal sanctuary — a sumptuous tent, luscious blankets and pillow, his sword and helmet resting outside. The four swords also seem to cast a protective shield above him.

If you’re able to get away this weekend then by all means do it! But if you can’t there are other ways to restore your sanity. Meditation, breathwork, self-imposed silence, etc. — any one of these can help you to de-stress and to restore your equilibrium.
