The 5-card Tarot spread is based on the American (Rider-Waite) Tarot. The cards are from the original deck published in 1910 – no more, nor less – 110 years old.

Oh, so many hands have shuffled those cards! Oh, so many souls have searched for meaning in their layouts! You are not alone looking for love in their arcane universe. 

Step I. Turn the cards in order to see your love omens for today.  

Step II. You will notice a small message card attached to every tarot card. These messages are called “specific arcanum”. They will help you interpret the meanings of the base tarot cards.

Step III. Click the cards for the second time to get a classic American (Rider-Waite) Tarot explanation of their meanings. 

Step IV. Finally – concentrate for a minute. Look at the cards, then look into your soul, look into the depths of your thoughts and mental connections.  That’s where the real magic of the tarot reading hides. And that’s where you will find the best insights

The Devil likes to disregard all that sets his soul free.

You may be feeling the lack of heart warming fulfilment in your life. You might buy something or turn to empty activities in a vain attempt to solidify those gaps, but in turn you are making the situation worse for yourself.

This excess living, whilst momentarily sets you free, leads you further and further into the corner of a room that you don’t see as a place that serves you well. ’How did I get here?’ you ask yourself from time to time. Instead of figuring this out, you turn to more materialistic ways to cope.

This excess living shows up in love, as the focus lies on you and you alone and little regard for your souls feelings. In work you may be feeling trapped or purposely ruining opportunities that come your way. You are likely to spend carelessly, with little time to worry about where your money goes. You may want to rethink the way you are moving forward in life.

’I feel empty and alone, even in a room full of people’ – The Devil

The Tower is a chaotic structure of change.

There are moments in your life where you fear upheaval. What if this shift impacts you in ways you are ill prepared for? You panic, having no option but to ride the wave of unfamiliarity with your breath held and your eyes closed. Your white knuckle ride is alive and kicking.

If you pause, just for a moment and open one eye, you might notice something in your surroundings that brings you peace or at the very least reassurance that soon all will be well. Foundational shifts temporarily cause confusion and aren’t suited to those who prefer the quieter, more balanced aspects of life.

Through loss and trauma, you discover a dimension of yourself that never existed afore. You wipe the steam from the mirror, look at your weary eyes and you see a small spark of strength. In endings, you turn the page and begin to write the next chapter. You are your own resurrection.

’You fall fast from me and into the unknown, but it is there you find your true self’ – The Tower

The Queen Of Wands is a fertile woman of passion.

You are deep in confidence, with the world at your feet but with your confidence comes another side, doesn’t it? This isn’t to say it is dark, but more intuitive. You give light but you also hold an inner flame exclusively for yourself. Both admirable and sensible, for we must take care of ourselves.

When you are this focused, nothing can rile you into chaos. You are happy to stand alone in a crowd, as long as what you stand for you firmly believe in. You do have a certain individualistic way about you of late, and that is something you would do well to hold onto. If you were at work with that positive attitude, you would be leading the way and throwing passion in your projects.

As a lover you do not shy away from independence. You like to balance between ensuring you earn your crust and being a cheerful and confident soul. You are as open as the ocean when it comes to feelings, ensuring great communication. Your aim is to withstand this love, so any other way of intertwining is a huge no.

’I offer you light and a determined heart’ – Queen Of Wands

The Sun is energy and light personified.

Like our nearest star, you are radiating warmth, vitality and exuberance. After the clouds have passed, we go outside and put our faces to the sky, ready to be recharged. At this time, you are the person attracting those souls needing light. Your energy fills rooms and offers many a chance to feel alive once more.

Your recent endeavours have led friends and loved ones to be inspired by your actions. They want to live their lives the way you live yours, knowing that happiness comes from one optimistic step after another. Rather innocently, you live the life of an open book, with a naïve spirit. This however, does not take away your strength.

Your enthusiasm rattles the cages of love and entices potential mates from every corner. Your glow is seen from afar as you bring good fortune to your finances and your career soars high, excelling in projects and relations. You are a trusted soul who is entering a joyous phase and as life continues to shine for you, so do your prospects.

’I am a beacon of warm energy, radiating in all that I do’ – The Sun

The Seven Of Wands defends hearts and minds from all that challenges it.

When I think of you being challenged, I don’t see somebody failing to defend themselves or their actions. I see you standing above those calls to surrender, with persistence and grit. You are of course, facing struggles of absolute, but rather than back down and admit defeat, you are standing loyal to your morals and protecting them.

Two things happen when you hold your ground this way. The first is the crucial step of setting boundaries. This allows others to see where you are and where you would like them to be. The second is that you are able to protect what you feel matters, and whether that is in life or love, your self belief shields love from harm.

Relationships could be battle ground for you, but this doesn’t necessarily mean negatively. You may be fighting to keep it alive and beating but you will find a way. You haven’t got this far to give it all up and you will be damned if it dies afore you. Be mindful at work, as others may be vying for your position. You are already aware of this as your back straightens and you begin to the process of fighting off competitors. They have nothing on you.

’I welcome challenge and will succeed in my defence’ – Seven Of Wands

The Emperor is a protective force of authority.

Your thinking, dear soul, is like a game of chess with every thought a strategic move towards your carved ambition. Your plans have structure that your strong mind undoubtedly sees through. It has been a long time coming for you.

With strict discipline, you rule your own kingdom and you are a strong leader for those in your circle. Your heels dig deep and you show true grit in adversity. You weather storms of uncertainty with determination and focus, and you let nothing alter your meticulous plans. Although you seek control, you are not controlling, with your wisdom vast.

You are a protective soul, carrying an air of practicality with you in loving relations and with your career and finances. You are a stable figure, with a lot to offer when it comes to consistent force. You honour your own heart well, believing in your stoic tradition of structure, rules and systems. You believe this is the correct way to live and create happiness for you and those around you.

’With a firm hand I guide using my principals of masculinity’ – The Emperor
