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 May 25th 2021.
At the time I scheduled this to post (so late Monday evening), the word from my mother’s doctors is that she’s going to have surgery at some point today. Thank you to all the amazing people who reached out over the past few weeks with words of encouragement, get well wishes, and prayers for her recovery. I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated as soon as I hear word of how it went.
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. Tomorrow (at 7:14am EST in my neck of the woods) the Super Flower Blood Moon arrives, with a Lunar Eclipse to boot! I’d hoped to update my Full Moon graphic for the occasion, but I had a hard time focusing on putting it together. So instead for now, I thought I’d just share a couple of my Full Moon rituals that I’ve put together over the years. If I get the chance to do the infographic before tomorrow morning, I’ll be sure to edit it in too.
Full Moon Good Fortune Spell
Full Moon Healing Spell
Now it’s time for the big reveal! Here are the fronts of the cards…
…and the messages for each card are…
1. Four of Wands
Celebrate your groundwork. It’s not done yet, but one of the most important steps – putting down the framework and laying the foundation – is complete. Maybe it’s a project, a relationship, or an actual home – in any case, it’s time to sit back for a bit, and celebrate this achievement. Things will only grow bigger and better from here. And keep in mind what David Brinkley said – “A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.”
Tarot Tidbit: The Four of Wands was last seen, in the second position, back in the fall of last year, on October 27th, 2020.
2. Nine of Swords
It’s not that bad. You know the facts, and they aren’t great. But it’s not the end of the world either. Stop focusing on the fear and negativity, because all it’s doing is blowing the problem way out of proportion. No sense in wasting energy worrying about the “what ifs” – instead, look for something distracting to help you break out of this cycle of, “doom and gloom, DOOM AND GLOOM!” Maybe grab your favorite, “gotta get out of this funk” movie (mine is Stardust), and forget about your worries for a while.
Tarot Tidbit: The Nine of Swords last appeared, in the third position, at the beginning of last month on April 6th, 2021. Before that, it hadn’t been seen in almost exactly a year, with the prior time (also in the third position) being on April 14th, 2020.
3. The Emperor
Father of all creation. This is the fundamental father – disciplined, stable, and the protector of all those he cares for. It’s now time time to take charge of things – handle those responsibilities you’ve let slide, structure your time more efficiently, and put up boundaries with people/situations who aren’t giving you the respect you deserve. Remember, sometimes it’s good to be king.
Tarot Tidbit: The Emperor hasn’t shown up much for Tarot Tuesdays – in fact, this is only the seventh time it’s appeared since its first appearance back in October of 2018! The last time it was spotted was just over a couple months ago (in the first position), on March 16th, 2021.
I hope you enjoyed your message for the week of May 25th 2021! Bright blessings to you!
