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 July 13th 2021.
As I mentioned last week, I have a number of things I’ve been wanting to blog about, but things keep distracting me. I’m going to make a point of getting some of them written in the next week or two – especially the one of a rare bird sighting I had in my yard this time last year, since, you know, it’s been a year since I planned on sharing it. 😮 😂
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. Almost exactly a year ago, on July 14th, I tweaked these two graphics for my Simple Candle Spell and posted the results on my Hive blog. I figured it would be a good time to share them again.
Now it’s time for the big reveal! Here are the fronts of the cards…
…and the messages for each card are…
1. Six of Pentacles
Help is needed. You’re generous. Whenever you have more than you need (time, money, love), you give freely to others, and enjoy the feeling that comes with doing good. Now it might be time to let someone give to you. There’s no shame in having a need, and by accepting help, you’re giving someone else the gift of feeling good about their actions. However, pay close attention to the man holding the carefully balanced scale in card picture. It’s a reminder that “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes well you just might find, you get what you need.”
Tarot Tidbit: The Six of Pentacles was last spotted, in the second position, back towards the end of last year on December 22nd, 2020.
2. Queen of Swords
Cold hard truth. You’re getting caught up in emotions and speculation, so it’s no wonder you can’t make a decision. Sometimes you need to take a step back to gain some perspective. Try the “just the facts ma’am” approach – look at the situation from a practical, factual point of view, and see if the answer, as unappealing as it might be, appears. When this card shows up, I ask myself, “WWSD (what would Scully do?)” and remind myself that “Sometimes looking for extreme possibilities makes you blind to the probable explanation right in front of you.”
Tarot Tidbit: The Queen of Swords was last spotted, also in the second position, just last week on July 6th, 2021. Someone (or someones…lol) must really need to pay attention to her message.
3. Five of Swords
Be gracious in defeat. Winning isn’t everything. When trying to win at all costs, the price could be your relationships. Sometimes it’s better to swallow your pride and say, “You win” or “You’re right” or “I’m sorry” even if the words get stuck in your throat. Try to lose with dignity, or win with compassion. And sometimes the best choice is to walk away from the fight – remember to choose your battles carefully. In the wise words of Albus Dumbledore – “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
Tarot Tidbit: The Five of Swords hasn’t been seen for over two years! The last time it was also in the third position, back on June 25th, 2019. And the visit before that was almost a year prior as well, having shown up (in the first position) on June 26th 2018.
I hope you enjoyed your message for the week of July 13th 2021! Bright blessings to you!
