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 September 22nd 2020.
Today is also the equinox, fall for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, and spring for those in the Southern. For those whole celebrate them, I have a couple of older posts for Mabon and Ostara (although I just realized I don’t have a comprehensive Ostara post like I do for Mabon – I’ll definitely have to fix that at the next equinox!), if you’re interested in checking them out. In any case, I wish everyone a wonderful turn of the season today.
And now with that 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. As I mentioned earlier, since today is the equinox – Fall/Mabon in the Northern Hemisphere, Spring/Ostara in the Southern Hemisphere, I put together a couple of new infographics for a Hive post yesterday. They’re also on Pinterest (Mabon & Ostara)- please feel free to share!
Now it’s time for the big reveal! Here are the fronts of the cards…
…and the messages for each card are…
1. The World
Journey’s End. You’ve been moving towards a goal, and after all your steps (and missteps), you’ve finally reached your destination. Don’t believe it? Think about where you were this time last year, and see how far you’ve come. This can also mean a sudden epiphany about your place in the grand scheme of things, and a desire to connect to a greater community. In either case, it’s time to celebrate, while also getting ready for your next journey (just like Seneca the Younger, and the song both say, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end”).
Tarot Tidbit: The World seems to like to show up monthly right now – the last time it was seen was a month ago, in the second position, on August 18th, 2020. And prior to that, it appeared a month before that, also in the first position, on July 14th, 2020.
2. 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 third position, back in the spring on April 7th, 2020.
3. Ace of Swords
Time for challenges. You’ve had an “AHA!” moment. Now is the moment to pick up the sword, and cut the deadwood out of your life. It might not be easy to face the truth, but you’re up for the task, and you know what needs to be done. As Buffy said to all the potential slayers, “So here’s the part where you make a choice: What if you could have that power now? …make your choice. Are you ready to be strong?”
Tarot Tidbit: The Ace of Swords hasn’t been spotted in almost a year! The last time it was in the first position on October 8th, 2019.
I hope you enjoyed your message for the week of September 22nd! Bright blessings to you!
