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 20th 2021.
It’s hard to believe we only have about a week and a half left of April – how did it go so fast! I’m sure the fact that I’ve been scrambling each day to write a new blog post for NaBloPoMo/HiveBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month & the Hive version of the same) has helped the time pass quickly, as well as the curation work I’ve been doing for @ocd‘s Love Sniper project. Speaking off, that Twitter account happens to be the host of today’s @hivechat, so if you’re interested in learning more, keep an eye on the Twitter hash tag at 18.00 GMT/2pm EST (check out this post for more details) to join the discussion.
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. Yesterday I did a quick Moon Monday post with a twist – instead of my usual photos of the moon, I did a new graphic for the upcoming Full Pink Super Moon in Scorpio, on April 26th/27th (depending on your time zone), and thought I’d share them both here again today.

Now it’s time for the big reveal! Here are the fronts of the cards…
…and the messages for each card are…
1. Eight of Cups
A new journey. Change can be scary. But sometimes you need to just walk away from it all, and start down a different path. Time to get out of your comfort zone, and follow your gut instinct that there’s something better and more fulfilling out there. This can also mean that you feel you’ve given something (like a job, relationship, or creative endeavor) everything you’ve got, and you haven’t gotten anything in return. It’s okay to say, enough’s enough, leave it behind, and look for something new that speaks to your soul. As Brent Smith from Shinedown says, “Sometimes goodbye is a second chance.”
Tarot Tidbit: The Eight of Cups hasn’t been seen since last summer. The last time it was also in the first position, back on August 18th, 2020.
2. Knight of Wands
Charge ahead! You’re all fired up. It’s time to take action now, and go after this full tilt. You have the courage and the drive – just trust in yourself, and let your confidence inspire others to do the same. Need a little help lighting the flame? Cue up your favorite Roar-type song, give ’em your best Xena warcry, and let the battle begin!
Tarot Tidbit: The Knight of Wands hasn’t been seen in almost a year! The last time, it was in the third position, back on May 26th, 2020.
3. Page of Swords
Storm’s coming. There’s a quote by an unknown author floating around social media that reminds me of this card – “Fate whispers to the warrior, “You cannot withstand the storm. And the warrior whispers back, “I am the storm.” You have the energy, the knowledge, and the drive to get what you want. The biggest challenge comes in harnessing the power of the lightning, before the storm passes. Grab it quick while you can, and “heart to heart you’ll win“!
Tarot Tidbit: The Page of Swords was last spotted, in the first position, back during the fall on October 20th, 2020. Prior to that, it hadn’t been seen in almost two years, with the previous time being also in the first position back on January 29th, 2019.
I hope you enjoyed your message for the week of April 20th 2021! Bright blessings to you!
