Welcome to another one of my Tarot Tuesday posts! I started doing these free readings monthly back in November 2015, then switched to every week almost a year later in September 2016. They’re by far my most popular posts, as well as being one of my favorites to put together. Today’s reading is for the week of April 13th 2021.
Another quick shout out before we get started – we’re already almost at the halfway point of #NaBloPoMo and #HiveBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month and the Hive version of it) and I’m wicked happy to see so many people jumping in. Thanks so much to everyone participating and/or spreading the word about this challenge. I can’t wait to see how we all do in the next two weeks and two days!
As for the reading – the setup of how I do these was not my original idea. I was actually inspired by how a few other bloggers were doing their readings back years ago. And since this method is a little bit different than how some other readers on other social media do them (usually posting the card backs first, then the messages at a later time), here’s a quick breakdown on how this works…
First, pick a card you are drawn to from the photo below. If more than one speaks to you, go ahead and pick that one too. You can even pick all three, in whatever order you like!
When you’ve decided on your card (or cards), scroll down to the bottom of the page for the photo revealing the card faces, and your message for the upcoming week.
Also, don’t be worried if you don’t happen to see this exactly on Tuesday. The message will be ready and waiting for you whenever you get here. 😊
I would also like to mention…
Now here are the backs of the cards for this week. Take a moment to clear your mind, inhale and exhale deeply, center yourself – whatever you need to do to focus. When you’re ready, take a look at the photo and then decide which one (or ones) speaks to you. Then scroll down to the bottom of the post for the picture of the front of the cards, and your message.
Next up, as a bit of insurance policy to make sure you don’t see the picture of the front of the cards before you’ve made your choice, I’m putting some of my infographics here as a type of spacer/spoiler prevention. I just saw my freezer spell pin that I created for a post almost exactly three years ago (which I didn’t realize until I just looked it up..lol) making the rounds again on social media. I gotta say, it never gets old seeing something you created (with the attribution still in tact, no less!) showing up in unexpected places, from people you don’t know. Then I took a quick peek and it doesn’t seem like I’ve ever shared this for a Tarot Tuesday – time to fix that now!
The Freezer Spell
Now it’s time for the big reveal! Here are the fronts of the cards…
…and the messages for each card are…
1. Queen of Cups
Trust your intuition. Time to listen to your heart, and not your head. Sit, meditate, and reflect on all aspects of the situation, and try to figure out what makes emotional, if not practical, sense. This might also call for a hefty dose of compassion – sometimes simply being supportive for someone is all they need. Channeling your inner Miss Honey and using a listening ear, an open mind, and a bazillion hugs can go a long way towards healing and understanding.
Tarot Tidbit: Queen of Cups was last seen at the beginning of the year in the third position, on January 19th, 2021.
2. Page of Cups
The Look of Love. I think of this as the Romeo card – time to fall in love, either with a person, a story idea, a creative project, or something of that sort. You may also be receiving a message of love from someone – maybe not as overt as flowers and chocolate, but something to show they care. It could be as simple as a bringing you a fresh cup of coffee, or sharing a Facebook meme, that shows they are thinking of you. Artistically, it’s that moment of sudden inspiration, when you see your project in a new light, or a bizarre-yet-brilliant idea presents itself – go with it.
Tarot Tidbit: The Page of Cups was last seen, in the first position, just a few weeks ago on March 23rd, 2021.
3. Seven of Cups
Decisions, decisions. You know the saying, “Careful what you wish for – you might get it?” After wishing you had more options, suddenly you have a ton to choose from. Now is not the time to be dazzled by the display – instead, take some time to carefully consider the practicalities involved, and pick based on reality, not wishful thinking. This card also shows up for me as a reminder to stop dreaming, and start doing – or, in the immortal words of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, “Don’t dream it, be it.”
Tarot Tidbit: After not being spotted for almost a year, The Seven of Cups is back for the second week in a row! However in the reading for April 6th, 2021 it was in the first position.
Extra Tarot Tidbit: All cups, with two court cards and a repeat from last week. And just a couple of days after an Aries New/Dark Moon. To say emotions this week might be high could be considered a bit of an understatement! Feel free to shout out what you think this means in the comment section – I’d love to hear other people’s take on this!
I hope you enjoyed your message for the week of April 13th 2021! Bright blessings to you!
Thanks for stopping by!
