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 June 23rd 2020.
Quickly wanted to mention that I’m trying something a little bit different with my spoiler space graphic below – it’s the reason why I’m a little bit late in posting this (I try for 8am EST every Tuesday) today, because it popped into my brain right before I hit, “publish”…lol! I hope you like it!
Now to get on with 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. As I mentioned at the beginning of the post, I’m trying something different this week. I’d been trying to find the artist behind a crow image (here it is on Pinterest) I’d seen on social media, and discovered the window element from it was a freeware png. I decided to see how it paired with one of my crow & moon composite pictures (the same one I’m currently using in my disclaimer photo), and I really like how it came out! Now I’d like to turn this into a quoto (quote + photo = quoto) which is where you, dear readers, come in – please shout out and let me know what quote, song lyric, poem, etc you think would pair well with this, and I’ll share the results next week!
Now it’s time for the big reveal! Here are the fronts of the cards…
…and the messages for each card are…
1. Two of Pentacles
Juggling act. On the one hand, you have your passion – on the other, your responsibilities. You need to make sure you’re giving enough time, energy, and attention to both. I tend to draw this card when I need to reassess how I’m getting things done (or not), and refocus my priorities. There are some stormy seas behind you, but if you manage to keep your balls in the air a little longer, help will arrive. Like the Little River Band says, “Are you always in confusion? Surrounded by illusion? Sort it out. You’ll make out. Seem to make a good beginning, someone else ends up winning. Don’t seem fair? Don’t you care. Hang on. Help is on its way.”
Tarot Tidbit: The Two of Pentacles was last seen, also in the first position, a few months ago on March 10th, 2020.
Forgive and move on. You’ve been carrying a heavy burden on your shoulders – you’re feeling guilty about something in your past, or you’re angry at something that happened to you. In either case, it’s time to leave those things in the past, allow your wounds to heal (rather than constantly reopening them), and use your experiences to help others overcome their burdens. In fact, your pain might lead you to an awakening, and a new calling which will put you in a position to be the voice for those who can’t speak. And remember, “when you lose small mind, you free your life.”
Tarot Tidbit: Judgement hasn’t been seen since last fall, whene it was in the third position on November 12th, 2019.
3. 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.”
