As the veil thins between the physical and spiritual worlds at this time of year, I thought I would just pull four tarot cards and allow any interpretations to come in a psychic form for these Tarotscopes. I don’t consider myself to be very psychic as a norm, but in the spirit (no pun intended) of Samhain/Halloween, I thought I would try. They are coming pretty fast and strong today, whereas yesterday I had a false start and had to abandon the route I had previously chosen. The card positions have no specific order, or direction/question, the cards were pulled simply as a conduit for communication. I felt very strongly guided as to what the cards were meant to say to you and, visually, each Tarotscope had a different focus despite being set out in an identical way. Hopefully they will speak to you in a pertinent and loving way. I hope so.
I would just like to take this opportunity to let you know that we have some very beautiful new gifts at our lovely Magickal Quest shop, with more to come in the near future if you would like to take a look.
Please do share these tarotscopes with your friends and family. I wish you all a wonderful November and hope that you achieve all that you wish to.
Keep the faith, and keep happy and safe.
Queen of Swords
Ace of Cups
Queen of Wands
These cards speak to me of achievement for the coming month. The Queen of Swords and the Queen of Wands indicate that you have the ability to use your brains and your brawns to an awesome capacity. You will be alert to opportunities and will be able to turn your hand to anything that comes your way. The Queens indicate that your skills are very honed and advanced. And just as they stand ready to act in the images, you will be ready and alert for what ever comes your way.
The Ace of Cups indicates that there may be a new relationship, romantic or otherwise. The Queen of Swords by the side of the Ace suggests that you will be clear in your head about how this relationship will, or will not, bring something you need into your life. It might be worth considering that you may have a too logical approach to the relationship, than an emotional one. Try not to be too aloof if trying to protect yourself from possible pain, because it may not allow the relationship to blossom when perhaps it should.
The Sun is a very positive card which shows that, in the month of November, it is likely that everything you touch should bring happiness and joyous results. The Queen of Wands, beside it, reiterates this, so make the most of this, almost magickal, time.
The image in The Sun card is a reminder to appreciate, and give gratitude, for all the wonderful things that you experience. Keep feeling the gratitude and hopefully The Sun will shine on you for much longer than you expect.
Queen of Cups
Page of Pentacles
Ten of Wands
Page of Swords
The cards for you, Taurus, this month, indicate that despite your great ability to nurture those around you, and you certainly have their love (Queen of Cups), it is likely you are overwhelmed, maybe truly overburdened, with all you have to do to keep this momentum going (Ten of Wands). There are two Pages to the sides of these cards which suggests that there are either children or people with immature attitudes which are adding to this situation. The Page of Pentacles is a Page that shirks his duty in order to go off and read his books/study and the Page of Swords indicates that the words being said are either incorrectly articulated, or understood. These two Pages could be indicating that, perhaps, you are allowing yourself to be overruled by them instead of you being able to approach and get help from them.
It could be that you have decided that ‘no-one’ will do anything for you. If this is the case you need to view yourself as the Queen. A loving Queen will kindly, and regally, order things to be done and she expects to be obeyed. Not only that, the Queen of Cups takes great care of her own needs, physical and emotional and that is part of her allure. Maybe you need to embrace the Queen of Cups within you – delegate some of your responsibilities to allow you time to tend to your own needs, and bring out that beautiful creature being kept prisoner by chores and work. Set her free.
Knight of Wands
Six of Wands
Five of Pentacles
For Gemini this coming month, there is a diverse set of influences which might be having quite a profound effect. I get a sense of distraction from the real issues at hand. The Five of Pentacles suggests a certain amount of worry about the current financial, or material, situation at home. On the other hand, other projects are going well, because the Six of Wands is definitely a card of well-deserved success in terms of what you have been turning your hand to recently. There is also some contradiction in terms of whether you should stand still and take some time to work out where you have come from (Temperance), and whether you should head off on an adventure to find your destiny (Knight of Wands).
Temperance, in opposition to the Knight of Wands, suggests that whilst you are tempted to get on your charger and look for the next adventure, it might be more necessary to stop and focus on the emotional part of your life, to pour plenty of love into the situation rather than heading off, at speed, looking for excitement. In terms of money, it is important to keep an eye on your finances to make sure they don’t get out of hand ~ however, it is also important to remember that material goods are not necessarily what makes you happy. Your passion and drive might well sort the financial situation out ~ Six of Wands ~ so keep putting energy into current projects but don’t make any other financial commitments until you feel in safer territory. Whatever the personal situation, it is important to put much more emotion, and loving effort, into it, because Temperance indicates some balance is needed. It is good to work hard at something but not to the exclusion of love.
Page of Swords
Five of Swords
Three of Swords
Five of Wands
There are a lot of the Swords suit in November’s cards which suggests that your attitude might not be in the balance. It is very top heavy. The Five of Swords suggests that you are ready to fight a battle at hand. The Three of Swords suggests you might just want to surrender…… and you are stuck in the middle. But the important Swords card, for me, is the Page of Swords which suggests that you might not be hearing what you need to know.
There’s no doubt that you are facing obstacles and hurdles as indicated by the Five of Swords, and the Five of Wands but these cards also indicate that your attitude to the problems are also hindering your progress or maybe creating more problems than there needs to be.
It would seem that everything is an uphill struggle at the moment and there is a clear absence of any real emotional balance in your psyche.
Don’t allow your mind to rule your whole attitude to what is happening in your life. At this time you should distract yourself with some fun, and balance out the practicalities with emotion. Watch some good films or read positive books. Try doing some pleasurable activities rather than focusing on what needs to be done. Leave the chores and rebel against what you ‘should’ be doing just once, because you need to be free of the constraints you are under right now. Logic and analytics are all very well in the right place, but they can sometimes overwhelm the need for fun and laughter, which is very healing and powerful. I feel that the low number values of these cards indicate that, if you do put the brakes on the way your thought pattern is going, there is a good chance that things will change for the better.
Two of Cups
Knight of Pentacles
Eight of Swords
Five of Cups
I sense, with these cards, that there is a feeling, if not an actual situation, of loss in a relationship which could be with regard to living persons, or those that have passed. I say this because the Eight of Swords and the Five of Cups generally indicate a separation in relationships, and yet we have the Two of Cups representing the cementing of a relationship between two people. It could be that despite your current romantic situation you are missing certain relationships and the people involved in them ~ including parents, siblings or others who have passed. This wouldn’t be surprising considering the time of year.
The Knight of Pentacles performs all his tasks dutifully and carefully. He does exactly what he needs to succeed. His work is admirable, and pedantic, but he can be viewed as being boring as a result. Relationships need to be ‘alive’ to survive – there has to be a whole gamut of requirements in a relationship ~ responsibility for each other, working to provide a home, doing the chores, but fun, laughter and emotional respect and attention, and of course demonstrations of love, are the essential ingredients to make it happy, not just functional.
If these cards indicate that this is happening in a current relationship, there is still time to address the issues. If these cards are about the people you have loved and lost, then the Two of Cups indicates there is still a two-way relationship to be had. Acknowledge them, say that you love them, remember them always. Perhaps, that way the sadness will ease.
Eight of Pentacles
Nine of Cups
Four of Pentacles
Here we have a lot of cards showing success in all aspects of your life which is lovely to see. The Nine of Cups indicates a strong and established relationship despite the difficulties along the way. The World card represents achieving all that you had hoped for, and the successful establishment of stability and security in terms of your home life.
In addition to this, though, the Eight of Pentacles indicates that, financially, although you have already done incredibly well, there is yet something else you are working on which could blossom, in terms of finances. Providing you equip yourself with, through learning, the necessary skills to develop it properly, it is a viable opportunity.
The Four of Pentacles, however, suggests that you are more likely to want to stick with what you already have, because you don’t really want to take any risks with your financial situation. It’s your choice, of course, but an excellent opportunity to improve your situation, could well pass you by, should you cling on to the ‘norm’ and not be willing to stretch yourself further.
Six of Cups
Eight of Pentacles
These cards show a lot of emotional conflict surrounding your personal relationships. You may be feeling strong and confident and maybe even a little assertive in what you consider to be the rights, or wrongs, in a situation. The Strength card advises us to be careful of any strong feelings or opinions because, as the saying goes “Pride comes before a fall.” In other words, we need to be careful how our ‘strength’ is coming over to others ~ choose firm but fair, as opposed to being bullish, choose assertiveness over aggression.
The Emperor echoes this sentiment. The Emperor can be a fierce and formidable opponent if he is threatened ~ he has all the power he needs to succeed, but The Emperor should be an authoritative, approachable, and kindly leader.
Perhaps the strength and confidence you are currently feeling is making you reflect on past relationships a little wistfully, of how they might have been, or could be, but unless the people in the relationship had matured and worked out the problems, it is unlikely it would have succeeded.
Instead, turn your efforts towards a project you are involved with which is showing signs of blossoming into a viable way of making more money. The Eight of Pentacles suggests that acquiring some skill with regard to this project could very well make it into a financial reality with great prospects.
Two of Pentacles
The High Priestess
Ace of Pentacles
The Hanged Man
These cards are showing a bit of mystery and the need for patience around a situation which could possibly improve your financial security.
The Two and the Ace of Pentacles indicate the beginnings of a new venture in terms of your work, income or security at home. In addition, the High Priestess indicates that there is a new destiny unfolding in the background for you, but nothing will be made clear to you just yet. It might be a time when you need to allow yourself to be open to new thoughts and ideas and to allow your intuition to develop.
The Hanged Man, too, suggests the coming month might require you to be incredibly patient. You might be tempted to push a situation you think is right for you, but you should submit to waiting for the full extent of the knowledge you need.
Both The High Priestess and The Hanged Man would suggest you do not make any important decisions in November. There is much more to come out before you will be able to see where this is heading.
Take this month to contemplate on what will truly make you happy and why. When the opportunities and information come available you will know what it is about, and what action to take.
Eight of Cups
Page of Wands
Ten of Swords
The cards for November indicate to me that the coming month will bring difficult situations to an end, a freedom from stifling thought patterns, and a new venture gathering speed.
The Eight of Cups and the Eight of Swords both indicate a difficult situation ending – more likely to do with regards to a relationship.
The Devil card, to me, suggests that this will release you from a situation which has held you ‘prisoner’ to your own thoughts and attitudes.
If this is the case then, whilst it will cause some amount of pain, it is likely to bring an element of relief in terms of your present mindset, and personal situation. You may experience some guilt, too, but, as this situation unravels, it will be a time to forgive yourself for the choices you made because it was done in all good faith and intention.
The Page of Wands suggests that whatever project you are working on right now is gathering speed although it is still early days. Focus on what effort and drive is needed, be prepared to take advice even though it might irk you a little, and don’t be rash in your actions. When one door closes another one opens, so look to what is developing for you, not what has been lost. You can see from the images of the cards that the future looks far brighter and more fun than the past has been, just recently. Keep on moving.
Knight of Wands
Eight of Pentacles
Ace of Wands
In these cards, it would seem, that some aspect of your work, or endeavours, might be coming to an end, whilst yet another venture beckons strongly and with great energy.
The Knight of Wands suggests a new direction in terms of what you currently work at, furthermore, you could already feel the need to be doing something a bit different, and the Death card would indicate that it is probably time. Your current path, perhaps, is not serving your purpose or fulfilling your needs, or your talents.
The Eight of Pentacles certainly indicates your abilities do, already, facilitate a reasonable income, but this particular card advises you to undertake some learning, in a particular field, which will benefit you far more than your current work. It is saying there is so much more to be had.
The Ace of Wands, sits below the Death card signifying a new dawn, a new way, and sits next to the Eight of Pentacles indicating great success, I feel, almost immediately. Your new road is carved out and ready to traverse. The Knight of Wands says “I’ll take you there because I know you want to go.” And, actually, you probably do.
The Eight of Cups
Ten of Pentacles
These cards tell me that the pain of a lost relationship will be cornered, diminished and overpowered by the results of your own efforts this coming November. It seems you will rise like a phoenix from the fire. Strong, happy and capable of anything.
The Sun will be shining on everything you touch, not only in terms of your own happiness, but also in terms of the completion of your attempts to bring your income and, home security, to fruition as represented by the Ten of Pentacles.
The Emperor suggests that you will have succeeded in creating your own empire, and that you have the drive and determination to keep it safe from attack. The attributes of the Emperor are those of assertiveness, authority, protection and leadership. A good Emperor will be kindly and approachable. Of course, this kind of power can go to the head and affect the input of the heart. Remember to not be domineering, but to be steering the way; not to get hard and power-crazy, but to be a showpiece of love and determination. You know you can protect it all ~ your domain ~ and its myriad components of works and people, so keep your head balanced with the beat of your heart. It is all working well, because it is of your creation, and your blood, sweat and tears courses through its veins.
Two of Pentacles
Four of Swords
This coming month, if you wish to make the most of financial offers of help, or the opportunity to improve your material situation, you will need to make some changes to the way you are currently handling things.
The Two of Pentacles suggests there is a way to improve your material situation. There may be someone ready to help you financially, or there may be a job on offer which would suit.
However, The Chariot suggests that you are currently being pushed and pulled around by forces around you. This card suggests that you have to be prepared to make your own choices and stick with them to the end. Allow yourself to be in charge of what happens to your life – not other people.
Also, The Devil card suggests that you hold yourself hostage to your own dark thoughts, or self-destructive patterns of behaviour. You can free yourself from these, they are holding you back ~ whether they are feelings of guilt or unworthiness, or being beholden to an addiction, or blaming yourself for past hurts ~ you can change this, starting by understanding what has happened in the past is done with, it’s over. When you can forgive yourself for your ‘mistakes’ (we all make mistakes – let’s acknowledge what we’ve learnt and move on) then the healing will begin (the Four of Swords). From here you can change the way you feel, and get ready to bring those changes about. Just start by grabbing the reins of your own life, and heading in the direction you want to go.
End of Tarotscopes.
