Ace of Wands

I am the inkling, the quiet whisper of inspiration. I am the novel idea at its moment of conception, the spark of something wonderful. I hold unlimited possibilities if you have the courage to run with me. New life blooms with a touch of my hand. Reach out and share my joy of creation.

Ace of CupsAce of Cups

I am love not yet in full bloom, but budding with potential. I am the inner voice which guides you when you can’t see through the fog. My knowledge comes direct from the Source and cannot be taught or expressed fully in words. I am guided by the higher vibrations of the unseen, that which can only be felt with the heart and soul. I offer you new opportunities to connect meaningfully, lovingly, compassionately with creation.

Ace of SwordsAce of Swords

I am the truth which cuts through your illusions. I am the dawn of understanding. When you perceive my light, there is no turning back. I often bring challenges which test your strength and shake your ideas and perceptions, but with my trials is the promise that you have within yourself the resources you need to overcome any obstacle that comes your way. I am the glint of a new idea, a new calling, a new insight of truth, and where you take my gifts offers endless possibilities. I am the still small voice within you that urges you to be strong in truth, justice and fairness and take responsibility for all you say and do.

I am a child of the earth while I am on this earth. I am in the here and now, my feet firmly planted deep in the ground, my spirit channeling light from the heavens. The earth cares for me and nurtures me, providing all I need with astonishing abundance. I have nothing to fear for I know who I am, where I belong, where I come from, and where I am going. I am part of something much greater than myself, and it is this connection with all creation which is the foundation of my being.

I am the lord and master of my realm. I have staked my territory, amassed property and wealth, and am now in a position of respect and influence among my people. Others are drawn to my magnetism and look to me to show them new ways of doing things. My success is irrefutable and others seeks to gain what I have achieved. I have the confidence and the ability to provide all I need for myself and my family. I am an instrument of power and revel in its intoxicating force.

I am the energy created when people, groups, ideas or abilities come together and bond to create something greater than themselves. I am the deep happiness and feeling of completion when two souls connect in a meaningful way. I am the fun, the harmony, the moving feeling that accompanies the bond that can only be felt in love and acceptance. My energy heals wounds and loneliness. It is playful, exciting yet at the same time peaceful. Enjoy this happiness now, for these feelings subside as the union matures and becomes even greater.

I am a rock. My emotions are well guarded and I hold everyone at arm’s length. I believe that as long as I stand firm and resist unpleasant choices, I can be at peace. I work very hard to drive doubt and worry from my mind so that I will not have to face decisions that will rock my world. Life may have become stale and meaningless, but at least I survive and do not feel pain.

I am the one that always has many irons in the fire. My work, my life is a dance and I go about my duties gracefully and effectively. I find joy and humour in everything I do, for life is too short for disgruntled begrudging. With ease and dexterity I adapt to life’s challenges, and expertly balance all the demands, tasks, and changes thrown my way. Life is a game. Have fun with it.

I have the vision to take us where we should go. I have stood on the mountain top and seen what lies in the distance. The time has now come for me to lead you to new horizons. I will show you the way if you follow me.

Today we celebrate our friendship. Our bond has us overflowing with joy and gratitude. Our loved ones are a gift to be treasured above all other blessings. Simply being with one another intoxicates us and we feel supremely happy.

I have been injured to the core. What I believed to be true was my folly. Those whom I have trusted and loved have cruelly deceived me, and I am now alone in my heartbreak. Yet I know that I had a hand in my own fall and must face my own failings. I have been betrayed and worse, I have betrayed myself.

Mine is the spirit of cooperation. Few projects can be accomplished completely alone and for this reason teamwork is a crucial part of life. I value the contributions others bring to our task, and I attract excellence in skill and knowledge. My approach is a methodical one that includes planning, assessment, preparation and action. I am confident that with the resources pooled, we will achieve many great works.

My crew and I have realized a successful end to an arduous voyage. We rejoice, having put off restrictions and oppression. We claim this new land for our clan and we look forward to a bright future here. Though there is much work to be done, for the real journey has just begun, we now savor our success and celebrate our blessings with singing, dancing and feasting.

I have lost myself in my musings. In my head I know that life has been good to me and I certainly have all I want, yet life has become stale and mundane. I am disconnected from others and feel no passion or excitement. I feel I have nothing to look forward to, so I go inside myself and lose myself in my thoughts and dreams to escape the endless monotony of my life.
Four of Swords

Four of Swords

I have been waging my battles and have grown weary. I lay down my swords and call a truce while I rest and review my plans. I challenge you also to step away from the fray. I Seek inner guidance as I rest and heal. I need peace and quiet for I cannot be prepared to go on if I do not first nurture myself to full strength.

It’s mine, all mine, and you can’t have it. I have worked hard to accumulate the things I have, and I will not squander them. I stand firm in the conviction that what I have built is will stand the test of time; there is nothing new out there that will make me release what I already control. I will not change. I will not bend. I have learned that my way is, indeed, the one true way, and I will not be swayed by your differing opinions.

I am the annoyance, the hassle, the thorn in your side that puts you on edge with yourself and others. I am the nagging voice that tells you that you are entitled to more than the other person. I am the drive that has you standing your ground when you are challenged. I am the odd sense of satisfaction that comes over you when you have bested another, either in competition or in a disagreement. I will not settle for the status quo. I will fight for what I feel I deserve.
Five of Cups

Five of Cups

I have spilled my wine, the nectar of life. I grieve my loss, and regret the choices I have made that led to this moment. I wish I could salvage something – anything – but it is gone, all gone. I feel completely alone in my disappointment.
Five of Swords

Five of Swords

I see more than you think I see. I see that even though I retreat, defeated, even though you have taken something precious away from me, you are more defeated than I am. You and your selfish pride and thirst for power will never find satisfaction or peace as long as you disregard what your actions cost others. Go on, then, and fight your battles, but it will not be with me. I have lost enough for a lifetime.
Five of Pentacles

Five of Pentacles

I am cold and hungry, tired and sick. I am all alone in the wilderness. Around me, there is plenty and yet it is all beyond my reach. I watch others as they make merry in warmth and comfort and I long with all my heart to be included. As long as I stand here there is some chance that I might catch the tiniest bit of warmth from the fire. If I give myself away, I fear that I will be driven away into the blackness of the night.

I am the spirit of triumph, the euphoric feeling of being recognized for a job well done. After much hard work, preparation, and practice, I have earned this victory and I am deeply proud of my accomplishment. This is the success that spurs me on to even greater heights.
Six of Cups

Six of Cups

I am the innocent happiness of childhood. I am the spirit of simple trust and unconditional love. I care for others as other care for me. I relish the blessings life has to offer – the morning sun, collecting seashells on the seashore, playing in the sun all day long and sharing secrets with my best friend. I represent the simple pleasures that will be remembered in your fondest memories.
Six of Swords

I feel whipped. I can only muster enough energy to function at the most basic level. If I suffer yet another setback, I am not sure I can survive. I have fought hard to avoid sinking into a deep pit, but I need rest. I need change and renewal. I seek guidance out of the murky turmoil of my life into calmer waters. I trust in hope that a new day is on its way.
Six of Pentacles

Six of Pentacles

I may not have all I need, but I surely have much to offer, and in exchange for my resources, knowledge, skill and labour, I am able to procure what I lack. I may not always receive in direct exchange for giving, but then, sometimes I am given gifts when I have little to offer in return. Life is an endless exchange of resources, knowledge, nurture and skill. There is a time to talk and a time to listen, a time to lead and a time to follow, a time to care for others, and a time to be cared for.
Seven of Wands

I stand firm in my convictions, and will resist any and all pressure to back down on my position. I have the courage and the strength to fight, and I have no trouble using whatever force is necessary to defend, or to take the offensive with those who are against me.

Life is a banquet of possibilities; why should I choose just one path? Perhaps I can have it all. Perhaps I am meant to have it all. Sometimes I feel that if I don’t choose one path and apply myself to it, I will never really accomplish anything with my life, and yet what path could possible keep me forever entertained when there are so many exciting things to try? I am having a good time drifting where the wind blows. I enjoy myself; isn’t that what life should be all about?
Seven of Swords

I am the lone wolf. I need no one and no one gets under my skin. Don’t try to pin me down or expect me to commit, because anything I do, I do for myself, and no one else. I get what I want through my own devices, even when it means lying, or stealing from others. I have fringe dwelling to a fine art. I am comfortable in the shadows, and you will have a tough time catching up with me in a chase. When you see me coming, guard your pockets.

I pause a moment and enjoy the fruits of my labors. I think about how things have gone, and how I might make better choices in the future. I have learned some valuable lessons from my work thus far. I shall consider trying new approaches where the ones I have used did not serve me as well as I had hoped. For now, I must decide whether I have set a good course, and should continue as I have, or whether I should change direction, if even just a little bit.

I thought it was what I wanted, but I see now, that it was empty. Working the dream has left me depleted, worried, tired. So, I leave behind what I have known and start a new journey of self-discovery. I am guided by hope, and faith that there is something better, and I search for truth, meaning and fulfillment.

I have come a long way, but have suddenly become lost. Trapped by circumstances, and completely bereft of guidance, I am powerless to move forward. I cannot see my way past obstacles that seem insurmountable. Oh, when will someone come to rescue me from my plight?

For hours upon hours I have sat here in the wilderness, carefully and methodically carving each of these disks. Though the task is not yet completed, my skill is steadily increasing with each attempt. The work is hard and I am consumed by it, but the results give me deep satisfaction.

The contest was difficult, and long. I fought with the beast long beyond the point where I thought my strength would fail. I saw it come into our camp, and I knew it was up to no good. I summoned all my will, and persevered, for I knew that if I did not, it would surely have harmed my people. I may be tired, battered and bruised, but in the end I prevailed, and my clan will do well as a result of my efforts.

In the dark hours of the night I cry as I worry what tomorrow will bring. Terrifying thoughts crowd my mind and fear grips my heart. I cannot sleep. I think about what I did, what I should have done, and I am racked with guilt and shame. I wish I could take everything back and walk a different path. Oh, what is to become of me, and those I love?
Nine of Pentacles

I live the life of gentility and graciousness. I enjoy refinement in beauty, art and culture. I seek the high road in all my dealings and avoid what is base and offensive. Just as I have trained my falcon companion to heed my call, so have I harnessed all that is wild and dark within myself. I live my life with tactful restraint and discipline. I rely on my own resources to provide me with the things I want and need and, indeed, I am truly blessed with the good life.

The weight of the world is on my back as I struggle up this steep and rocky slope. There is no one with whom I can share my burden; it all falls upon me. Each step is a struggle, each breath laborious, yet someone must see this task through. I’m not sure why, but that someone always seems to be me.

Life has blessed me in the past with special times, special places and special people who have nurtured me and taught me to love. Life continues to bless me into the present and future with my dear ones whom I nurture and guard with my life. I carry my loved ones with me wherever I go. We cannot be separated; we are one. My connection with everything around me makes me whole. When I feel whole, I am in a state of harmony, joy and peace.

I cry out, “why me?” Nothing ever goes my way. At every turn they use me, then revile me and persecute me. I have spent my life trying to help others; yet the world has turned against me and heaped anguish upon me that I do not deserve. I am at the mercy of jackals that delight in my torture, and I am powerless to stop them.
