Welcome to another one of my Tarot Tuesday posts! I started doing these free readings monthly back in late 2015, then switched to every week in early 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 February 2nd 2021.
Once again, I’m scheduling this to post a couple hours earlier than my normal 8am-ish (EST) so I can taking a minute to shout out to my Hive friends (or anyone interested in the Hive platform about the latest @hivechat taking place on Twitter today (February 2nd 2021 at 8am EST/13.00 GMT). I’m especially excited about it because I’m the host again! Well, technically my @hiveblogshare account is hosting, but still! My questions will be related to the relatively new Twitter Curation intiative, so be sure to follow the HiveBlogShare Twitter account or follow the hash tag on Twitter to join in the fun! Oh, and after the chat is over, I plan to spend the next day or so, dropping @hivetips on some of my favorite answers/comments (thanks, as always, to the generosity of @theycallmedan ). 😊
And now with that being said, it’s time to start 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. When I first started studying witchcraft, I learned that Imbolc was celebrated on February 2nd. It wasn’t until many years later that the interwebz told me differently, and I’ve since discovered there are different traditions that celebrate on either the first or the second of February. All of which is my very long-winded way of explaining why I’m sharing these infographics today, as for me, today is the celebration. Not sure if I can justify sharing the infographics (holiday graphic plus a bread spell) Southern Hemisphere celebration of Lammas in the same way, but I’m including them anyway…lol!

Lammas in the Southern Hemisphere
Lammas Painted Bread
Now it’s time for the big reveal! Here are the fronts of the cards…
…and the messages for each card are…
1. Three of Swords
Yikes! Every time I see this card as my daily, that’s the first word that pops into my head. Today is going to be a day of finding out things you really don’t want to hear, but in the end, they will be extremely healing. Like lancing a wound, you will get some pretty cutting truths, but at least you will finally have the facts, even if they aren’t the ones you want. Let the poison in your heart drain out, then you can begin to heal. Give yourself some time to wallow, listen to your favorite emo song (I usually go for Closure by Chevelle), then take a deep breath and move on.
Tarot Tidbit: The Three of Swords was last spotted, in the second position, back in the fall on September 22nd, 2020.
2. The Chariot
Find your middle ground. As Mr Miyagi said, “Better learn balance. Balance is key. Balance good, karate good. Everything good. Balance bad, better pack up, go home. Understand?” Think of the two horses in the card as being negative and positive emotions – if you focus solely on urging one ahead to win the race, you’ll soon be off-balance and your carriage will overturn. Keep a tight and balanced hold on your reins, harness your power, and gallop ahead to victory.
Tarot Tidbit: The Chariot was last seen, in the third position, also back in the fall on October 27th, 2020. Prior to that, it hadn’t been seen in over a year.
3. King of Swords
Cut to the chase. You’re smart. No one knows more about this situation, and how to fix it, than yourself. You know what the solution is, and you’re just the person to make it work. One caution – while you’re right to feel proud of what you’re about to accomplish, make sure you don’t accidentally step on any toes. Don’t fall for the classic blunder of being like Vizzini, instead, ask yourself, “WWWD (What Would Westley Do?)” Soon enough, you’ll have everything, “as you wish.”
Tarot Tidbit: The King of Swords was last seen, in the first position, just a few weeks ago on January 12th, 2021.
I hope you enjoyed your message for the week of February 2nd 2021! Bright blessings to you!
