Three of Pentacles

Three of Pentacles

Today — as Mercury sextiles the North Node and trines the South Node — is a good day for connecting with others and putting your heads together to bring a project to fruition.

The Three of Pentacles — this version from Nathalie Hertz’s Vampire Tarot — joins companionship and camaraderie with work and productivity. It refers to the bringing together of like-minded people in a business or financial capacity. It’s about networking, collaborating and team-building.

It’s a card of cooperation and coordination. Bringing all of the necessary elements together — and adding your own unique contributions to the mix.

The Three of Pentacles also represents progress. Seeing the fruits of your labors come to life. And overseeing your efforts from start to finish, much like the three bats in this card are watching over the young Vampiress.

If you’re involved in a project that could benefit from someone else’s expertise, don’t be afraid to ask. And don’t be afraid to offer your assistance to those who might need it as well. You may just need a little push to get past a hump, or you may need the discerning eye of someone you trust.

The Three of Pentacles — like all threes — refers to the initial stages of progress where you’ve taken an idea (the Ace) put it into production (the Two) and are making progress now toward creating something real (the Three). It says you should be feeling good about what you’ve accomplished so far. But there’s still work to be done, and you won’t be able to do it alone.

Ten of Swords

Today’s card — the Ten of Swords from Nathalie Hertz’s beautiful Faerie Tarot — is one of the more difficult and uncomfortable cards in the deck.

It speaks of having to face facts over a situation that didn’t turn out the way you’d hoped and a sense of having to admit defeat, no matter how hard you to try to engineer a different outcome.

You may have been clobbered over the head with a dose of hard cold reality, or you could be feeling like you’ve hit rock bottom over something you wanted so desperately that turned out to be just not be in the cards.

If you find that you’re in this position today, don’t be so hard on yourself. Don’t think that “Up” is such a bad place to go when there’s nowhere to go but up.

The Ten of Swords forces you to stop fighting a losing battle and prepare for what you should be doing instead. Being at your lowest point means that you not only know what you’re up against, but you also know that things aren’t going to get worse.

If you’re ready to put this behind you — whatever your “this” may be — know that it really is darkest before the dawn. So take some time today to it to rest, then dry your tears and dust yourself off. Remember that tomorrow is a brand new day, and that things can only get better from here on out.

Free Daily Tarotscope — Nov 1, 2015 — Strength



Today you may need to be extra gentle with yourself and tend to your own needs with the same loving care that you’re used to doling out to others.

The Strength card is a card of self-mastery. It’s about digging in deep and finding your inner reserves of strength and power that are sometimes necessary for handling life’s challenges.

It’s a card of courage, bravery, discipline and self-control. It speaks of the importance of staying grounded and being steadfast in the face of danger, and whatever curveballs the Universe throws your way.

You may be putting on a brave face as you tackle things that frighten you today, or that take you outside of your comfort zone. Or you may — like the faerie in the card, from the beautiful Faerie Tarot  — recognize the value of taming your inner beast and becoming one with it.

You may notice the storm clouds brewing in the distance, but she doesn’t even flinch. And this is the essence of this card. Self-mastery and self-control.

The Strength card encourages you to not only meet your fears and insecurities head on, but to transform them by neutralizing the power they hold over you. Once you do that you’ll find that they weren’t so frightening after all.

Today you may find yourself juggling all of the different areas in your life and trying to find ways to maintain balance.

With all of the activity going on around you may feel like you’re being spread too thin, or pull in too many different directions. You’ll have to be flexible and observant. Giving into the call of one desire without neglecting the call of another should be foremost on your list.

The idea is to be alert enough to remain aware of your surroundings and agile enough to immerse yourself in them fully. Much like the little faerie — from Nathalie Hertz’ gorgeous Faerie Tarot — in this card.

Although there are bound to be distractions and demands on your time, this card says you have it in you to stay centered and attend to your obligations by pulling those opposing forces together and striking a balance between them.

In the context of this card Pentacles refers to more than just money. While it can mean juggling funds — robbing Peter to pay Paul and seeing money go out as soon as if comes in.

While these are certainly possibilities you want to be aware of, they can also refer to tasks, commitments and external obligations. 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.

Ace of Wands

Today the Sun and Mercury move into Leo, shifting the focus from accessing our feelings and emotions to taking charge of our lives and making our goals a reality.

The Ace of Wands — this version from Nathalie Hertz’s gorgeous Fantastical Tarot — is all about manifesting your dreams and desires. Taking your life in your own hands. Following your Bliss. And going after your goals with the kind of gusto that makes saying “Yes!” an absolute rather than a maybe.

It’s about increased confidence, drive and enthusiasm. Ardor. Vitality. Passion. Creativity. Power. Potential.

The Wand in this card is a pillar of strength. The intricate dragon carvings suggest a sort of magical essence that is very much a part of the Ace of Wands. And there’s beauty and creativity present here as well. The vines and wildflowers springing up from its base reminds us that this card is less about might and more about merriment.

The birds flying in from the distance tell us that there may be messages coming our way. These aren’t always tangible (as in a verbal or written message). But can be gathered from our surroundings and applied just as powerfully.

The Ace of Wands is all about inspiration and potential. It invites you to ask yourself what you really want that you haven’t (up to now) put your whole heart and soul into? And what are the chances of making it a reality unless you do? This energy is about offering your intentions up to the Universe with every reason to believe you will be rewarded for doing so. With this in mind, it’s time to push all negativity aside and replace it with optimism and inspiration. If you’re truly serious about manifesting your desires, there is no time like the present to do it.

Queen of Swords

Queen of Swords

You may have to adopt a bit of an “ice queen” persona today, much like the Queen of Swords — from the gorgeous Faerie Tarot — depicted in this card.

Sometimes it’s necessary to detach yourself from emotional responses in order to get a job done. You may find yourself in a position of authority, having to “lay down the law” rather than listening to excuses or rationales.

That doesn’t mean you have to be “cold” — even though this Queen and her familiar (a beautiful stoat sporting his winter coat) are seen here in the midst of an icy landscape. What it does mean though is that you’ll have to make decisions based on logic and principle rather than being swayed by emotional attachments.

Today’s Moon in Gemini is in mutual reception with Mercury in Cancer. This combination acts as a natural conduit between the realm of emotions (Cancer) and ideas (Gemini). It allows you to detach enough from your feelings to make informed and rational decisions without sacrificing kindness or sensitivity.

The Queen of Swords may seem cold, but underneath her icy exterior lies a heart of gold. Notice the fiery hilt of her sword placed directly over her heart. She tends to her pet with the same loving care that a mother expresses for her child. Keep this in mind today if you find yourself having to mete out justice of your own.

Today’s New Moon in Taurus marks the beginning of a new financial cycle. As Taurus rules the 2nd (money) house and is associated with stability and security, it’s a good time to start saving money and planning for your future.

The good news is that the Ace of Pentacles means money is coming in. It may me small amounts of money, but those can be pooled together, invested or put to good use and grow over time.

The Ace of Pentacles represents the start of something new, in this case new financial opportunities. It’ speaks of manifesting your goals through hard work, dedication and perseverance.

You may be in line for a raise or promotion, or you could learn of job opportunity that involves a bigger salary. You could also be the benefactor of someone else’s generosity. Either way, you should have more opportunities and more financial resources at your disposal than you’ve had in recent days.

You may also feel that your luck is changing. As the Ace of Pentacles is associated with a positive change in fortune. It’s telling you to keep up the good work, to go after your dreams, and to be open to all that the Universe has to offer you.

The Sunflowers in this version of the card — from Nathalie Hertz’s gorgeous Fantastical Tarot — represent abundance, longevity, fertility and fortune. The Dragon represents strength, power and luck.

The Ace of Pentacles says money is coming your way today so be ready to make the most of it. You may not see a windfall, but it’s still a positive affirmation that you’re putting your energy into the right areas.

With that in mind, it also serves to remind you of the importance of staying grounded and focused while you put your plans in motion. You can be confident in the knowledge that fortune is smiling upon you with today, and while that doesn’t mean you should be foolish with your money, you should have more of it than usual to work with.

Three of Cups

You may feel like letting your hair down and spending your day socializing and interacting with others.

The Three of Cups — this version for Nathalie Hertz’s beautiful Faerie Tarot — is a playful and festive card that emphasizes partying and celebrating over work and responsibilities. it also emphasizes friends and casual relationships over serious romantic entanglements.

It refers to being surrounded by like-minded people and putting your differences aside. It’s about coming together and joining forces with those who have your best interests at heart.

As Venus trines Jupiter today, the focus is on merriment and gaiety rather than monotony and drudgery. It’s on interacting and networking with others, allowing you to push aside some of your more serious concerns — at least for the time being.

It represents people gathering together to connect, interact and celebrate. It’s a happy, joyful energy that can manifest as a party or celebration, or it could be as simple as a girls night out. There’s a strong sisterhood vibe to this card — as well as most other versions of the Three of Cups — too.

Pay attention to new people coming into your life too, as Venus is also opposing Uranus today. You could find yourself developing friendships with people that seem random at first but can turn into important connections over time.

No matter where the people in your life have come from today — no matter what your connection or history or relationship with them is — the Three of Cups is a card of companionship and camaraderie. It serves as a reminder that there’s always something to be grateful for, and always someone to share your gratitude with.

If you look back over the past year what would your greatest accomplishment be?

This image shows your imagination running away with you and perhaps there is something that was left out for you in 2014 that you wish to carry over to 2015.

Do not be concerned that you have failed in any way as the timing may have been that you laid down the groundwork for your dream over this last year and next year you can release you dream.

The garden (your plan) is well tended. You have laid out some very impressive groundwork in getting yourself started. The four pillars are lined with symbols of growth alongside the green beacons which further shine for you and give you inspiration.

The hill in the background is vividly green even under the light of a full moon at night and this implies that you will find the answers you seek for you plan without much need for more searching.

Help will come to you and that help will be both inspirational and practical. If nothing else today you should enjoy yourself and let your imagination soar. You may have put down the practicalities of the groundwork you need for your goals but what you seek for your next step is not so practical.

Like the Unicorn in this image it may require a little magical thinking alongside a wish or two.

Keep this in mind if you are tempted to rush into action today as sitting back and daydreaming may get your further than anything else you could possibly do today.

Today is a day about taking care of yourself as well as others and if there has been any unbalance between the two lately then it’s time to take a look at that.

There is a touch of the fairy about this image and predominance of the colour green shows that there is healing around for you.

You may wish to choose where and whom you deliver this healing to as if you need more energy for yourself there is no use giving it out to others when you could be replenishing your own reserves.

Any pet project you have going on or in the pipeline will need careful surveying today and the finishing touches may need to be put in place.

There is help at hand for this as the white petals float down from the tree in the background giving new thoughts that come from nowhere to help you.

You may feel as if you have a lot of energy to share around today as can be seen from the red dress worn yet you do not need to put as much of that energy into everything you do as the delicate fairy wings show just a smidgen of energy goes a long way. Therefore go from one project to the next and don’t get bogged down in any one thing.

Do not take on the problems of others as if they were your own. Keep a healthy distance and take notice of boundaries. This may be the lesson you are learning today… where you begin and others end.

Two of Wands

Two of Wands

The Two of Wands — like all Twos — refers to taking the spark of an idea (seen in the Aces) and forming it into a tangible, working plan.

This requires looking at it from all angles — weighing the pros and cons, evaluating time and energy, separating the wheat from the chaff and so on. This is beautifully represented in the imagery depicted on this version of the card.

Here we see two leopards — one dark and one light — each standing watch by their own ornate pillars. The dark leopard is an exact mirror image of the light. Their sleek bodies curve toward one another and become “one,” reminding us of the power of uniting opposing forces to make one stronger entity. The Sun shines high in the sky between them.

The key here is balance: you won’t be able to make something happen without careful consideration and planning. And all the planning in the world won’t cause your ideas to materialize without putting in the effort.

There’s a certain give and take with the Two of Wands (as with all Twos in the tarot) that is mirrored right back to you. There’s also a need for discrimination — throwing out the unrealistic or half-baked ideas and focusing on what has a genuine shot at being successful. The Two of Wands requires you to be objective and this is why it’s always wise to bounce your ideas off of another.

Today you want to be mindful of the need to balance your plans and ideas with the actual work that goes into making them manifest. The Two of wands speaks of taking the spark of an idea (brought about by the Ace of Wands) and turning it into something tangible.

But this doesn’t just happen magically — despite the imagery in this card. We can see the little faerie seated on the edge of a fountain and framed by two blooming wands.

One is clearly smaller than the other and this is the one she’s directed her attention to.

The key here is balance: you won’t be able to make something happen without careful consideration and planning; but all the magic in the world won’t cause your ideas to materialize without putting in the effort.

There’s a certain give and take with the Two of Wands (and will all Twos in the tarot) that is mirrored right back to you.

If you want to make something happen, prove it by participating in its development. The outcome you achieve will be directly proportional to the energy you put into it.
