Water is a very feminine element, related to fertility, birth and renewal. It quenches thirst, it extinguishes fires, it brings blossoming to the barren land.

Below you will find the Water Tarot reading, which helps you to find alignment and gain favors from the generous flow of this primal element. Tarot originates from the ancient Egypt, where “water” was a synonym to “good”. The best season of the year was called “high water”, brought by the flood of the Nile river. 

By reading Water Tarot you gain Water Karma. The better score you get, the better your sync with the water element on this given day. 

water karma terrible

-20 and worse

                      What could you possibly say from this cataclysmic tidal wave of destruction despair? The plague of life surrounds you, and you have every right to be worried because very bad things are close on your horizon, if they aren’t already rotting into your present life. There is nothing you can do to stop this – it is too late.

                      You cannot continue this way because eventually something, or someone will die. I don’t think you care about or even deserve happiness, because this dire and dismal state of life you are sitting in the middle of, is only here to to your karmic actions. The only thing I am hopeful of is that you should be ashamed of yourself, because you certainly should be.

                      What to do next? Your task is clear – give up. Forever if you can, but mostly right now and for the foreseeable future. Your life as you know it, has come to its worst point. A beacon of light? A current of hope? Both are strongly absent. And you deserve every bit of it.

-19 to -15

                      Oh perilous times – when will they end? When do you think they will end? All the while you are acting brutally to yourself and others, you cause nothing but harm and distortion to whoever you meet and wherever you walk. You may not be at rock bottom, but my dear you are a step away.

                      The worry that comes with tiptoeing areas like this is that you aren’t even aware of how dark the path is that you are walking. Your conscience is muddy, your mind is ineffective in thinking or acting kindly and trouble surrounds you like a dozen armed guards. Must you continue this way, or will you surrender to the tiny fragment of light that still shines? I personally don’t see a good outcome, and I don’t think you do either.

What to do next? Your task is clear – hide. Your soul is being hunted, and you don’t have the tools to stop yourself from being captured. I say to those in these situations that you got yourself to this place by making terrible life choices. Hope? Barely any.

-14 to -12

                      Dear soul, you are not in a good place at all. I fear this may be further a downfall as your negative outlook, actions and thoughts lead you to spiral evermore down the rabbit hole of failure. Are you always this hell-bent on destroying everything? Bad karma is resulting in bad prospects and incredibly hopeless future endeavours.

                      I cannot see a good time ahead for you at all. I see you sailing into stormy seas, with nothing but a small boat and a half inflated life jacket. Do you know what you are getting yourself into and has the pain already inflicted in your heart not enough to warn you? You re making poor choices, and soon enough you will be accountable for them.

What to do next? Your task is clear – you’ve time to steer your ship into a new direction. Not much time I’d like to add, but just enough. Let this be your official warning notice that things need to change and if you act fast, you may get lucky. With this change of direction must come a change in attitude.

-11 to -9

                      Physically and mentally exhausted are you.  I get the strong feeling that karma sent you here a long time ago and you’ve refused to move. Perhaps this is due to your inactivity or lack of care, but you have festered here for a long time and I don’t see much room for improvement all the while you continue with this wrong pace of life.

                      It’s time you realised that every action has a consequence, and for you right now, whatever you seem to do, doesn’t work out for the greater good. You’ve so much potential but of course, it goes totally wasted due to your bad qualities eating away at your desires and relations. This is not how you wanted your life to be.

What to do next? Your task is clear – shape up. It doesn’t matter what you do first to improve your life, just do something. Rest assured that if you remain here, you will not forge new friendships, there is little hope for success in life or love and you will destroy anything that may by chance still be standing.

-8 to -7

                      Feeling poorly is the excuse you’ve made for too long now. You aren’t going anywhere, you body and soul are in a poor state due to your stubborn inaction. How do you suppose life will improve if you do absolutely nothing to help it along the way? It won’t. You and I both know that.

                      As stagnation goes, you are top of the list. What or whom is your alibi? You don’t have the time? You don’t have the money? You don’t have the friends? Make time, make money and make friends. Your reasons for failing and pressing self destruct are not worth anybody else’s energy and you alone must realise that the mistakes you’ve made are impossible to change. So focus on your future if you value it enough.

What to do next? Your task is clear – stop using those around you as reasons for you failing. You should be sorry that you use innocent souls to stop you from applying a little efficiency in your life. It is out of their control, but it is fully in yours. The sad part is, you refuse to see it, and this is what needs to stop. Today.

-6 to -5

                      Do you see any light? I want to hope that you do, but I fear otherwise. It isn’t a nice place to be, with distorted darkness around you. Things can feel far away when they are actually close, and vice versa. What got you here? Do you know your way out? You must be hoping for better days, as I am hoping for them for you too.

                      As crimes go, you have committed the offence of festering in your own murky waters. It is damp and you feel alone. How and why? Were you somewhere desirable before, or as you walk from despair, are you seeing this as your stop gap? Whatever your answer, staying here will only lead to poor health., so you must find a way out.

What to do next? Your task is clear – stand up, and walk. Eventually, you will walk your way out of the pits of gloom. You may not walk immediately into brighter skies, but my hope for you is that any light will inspire you to keep moving.

-4 to -3

                      You just simply cannot get there. Life by no means, is terrible. So what stops you from wanting more? What is in your way that prevents you from walking forward? It doesn’t have to be this way and of course yes, things could be much worse. You’ve either come from those terrible places and see your current position as a better destination or you are losing momentum in your journey and have resided in a place still not completely habitable for success.

                      In trying to sow seeds here, you are failing yourself, your time and the seeds. Without the right temperature, they will merely sit and rot in the acidic soil. Instead, you need to form better karmic decisions and move forward to warmer climates if you with for your garden to rise and flourish alongside your life.

What to do next? Your task is clear – pack your bags and walk away from this place of solitude and frost. You are not suited to this location but for now, this is all you sadly deserve. Magical things can happen when you try.

-2 to 2

                      Destined to be average – you are neither here nor there. As troublesome times come and go, happiness is rarely sought after and gained and when it is, it is fleeting. Your life is bobbing along like a buoy in the sea. It is safe, keeping you within the uninspiring frame of your safety zone but you haven’t yet dared beyond. The point to make here is that you can, if you wanted to.

                      With everything accumulating ordinarily, you care not about what life has to offer, although sometimes it is evident that you do get lucky. Is this what makes you truly content? What do you have to give, and are you giving it your all? I fear not, and so do you, yet you remain rigid on the scales, tipping them neither towards failure and a lesson learned, or true happiness.

What to do next? Your task is clear – make some important decisions. Without goals, we are nothing. Without outcomes, we merely surmise. Without interchangeable days and nights, your life will roll into one meaningless blob of inactivity. Challenge yourself.

3 to 4

                      A promising place to be as you enter a world away from negatives. This does not mean they still don’t plague your life from time to time and interrupt your thoughts or goals. What makes goals achievable are positive states of mind and I believe you have found the right place to really start getting those into order and seeing them become a reality.

                      If you have wondered here from harder times, may you appreciate what it means to be able to explore the lighter side of life, and may it lead to extraordinary times. Be mindful that those times are not of yet and you still have some work to to in order to gain full repose. Never settle for anything less than brilliant and if that takes time, then so be it. You luckily have plenty of that.

What to do next? Your task is clear – karma has help you here and you should be thankful for that. To ensure you keep walking to the direction of a brighter light, make use of your conscience, and keep it clean. Help others, help yourself and do as you wish to be done.

5 to 6

                      You must be getting the sensation that everything is working out strongly in your favour. It is without doubt – your energy is gaining tract and you are headed towards a place of desire. As everything begins to form well for you, your future awaits a certain few more steps to take in order to reach the top of the mountain, but you mustn’t counteract that task with your progress.

                      For Karma to trickle into your life the way you desire, your requirement is simple – keep doing what you are doing. You will find that things only have the potential to get better and better with every decision you make and hold dear to your heart. Are you able to invest more trust in yourself and your actions? As you gain further momentum, you will realise what a wise choice this was.

What to do next? Your task is clear – your view of the summit is close, do not accept your current view as your best life. Tread the track, forge your own path to greatness. Your destiny awaits, and you don’t have far to go.

7 to 8

                      From one good thing to another you merrily bounce. Buoyant and fair are you, with your loyalties to others seeping out of your soul like a lost memory, grateful to be found. It all seems to be coming coming together nicely, and in this unity you find your strength. Subtle it is for now, you are building solid foundations for greater things t come. You’ve the patience and intelligence to know that good things come to those who wait and your virtue will be rewarded.

                      With each new step brings larger opportunity – a force only you can create. You are raising your vibrations and they are reaching out to all you hold dear. Life is more than merry, and as you notice those around you responding well to your ideas and creativity, you see this karma as something you control, with possibilities becoming endless.

What to do next? Your task is clear – don’t stop. Whatever you are doing, it is working. You are discovering places new to root and settle your traits, so that they reach out to others and provide a lifeline for opportunity. You are getting stronger in stature and courage.

9 to 11

                      You once viewed this life as a rose tinted garden, something you couldn’t possibly manifest and most certainly not without a dream and crossed fingers. Now here you stand, with merry stance and the rest to play for. You are not outwitted by negativity, as it flows through your mind like a racing river and out into the ocean of air that surrounds you.

                      Whatever your need, it is being fulfilled by your own admission and as your power increases, so does your vibration. Should you choose to share it with others, your sunny skies will develop into sunnier horizons that you can fully enjoy. Delve deeper into these magical possibilities as they increase every ounce of success due to you.

What to do next? Your task is clear – you are gathering berries to make the best fruit pie for you and all those who share your life. Your aim is to make it sweet, make it big, and save some for the rest of your journey.

12 to 14

                      Life really is all it is cracked up to be. Your garden is filled with colour, scent and life and you are tending to it well. Not astoundingly, but well. When gardens bloom, the birds come and visit, the insects make themselves at home and us human souls sit proudly amongst it, with cascading water features grounding us peacefully. You have the garden, but you are missing the balance.

                      To enable all elements to share your space, your life must be inviting enough to entice them, and promising enough to sustain them for a prolonged period of time. You’ve potential, dear soul, and it is big. One thing lacking is your knowledge of how it must all come together to form perfection. This is a learned process, through habits of positivity.

What to do next? Your task is clear – a positive life does not come from distinctly average actions. You are trying hard, but there is a next level, and it is called, ‘Must Try Harder.’ I foresee you breaking barriers and living your best life. You won’t get there on a wish and whim.

15 to 19

                      Oceanic views and beautiful skies – you have found yourself in he very enviable position of utter perfection! There you are, surrounded by good karma and calm seas and all that awaits is the cherry on the cake – ultimate fortitude! By natural virtue, you have come far and wide to cease control of your waters and quarters and nobody is standing in your way – they wouldn’t dare!

                      Your mission in life is to surround yourself and your quests with this magnificent karma. Your journey here was not on a wish and a leap, but of time after time of good and correct decisions. I am so proud that you have become this beacon of light that radiates goodness to all around you. 

What to do next? Your task is clear – always strive for ultimate glory. Perfection turns others green with envy but you care not. If there is one more honourable step of the ladder of success to climb, be it yours and climb it well you should.

20 and over

                      Oh, celestial deity! The heavens are enriched with your power, beauty and fortune. As the rivers flow freely into the oceans, your blood runs through your veins, giving you the incredible sense of immortality and the overwhelming strength to overcome miniscule disillusion. The world and everything in it is yours for the taking, dear soul. You’ve reached the higher atmosphere of living fully!

                      Oh, wondrous karma, the overflowing order of all that is good – you have excelled in life. Your worlds are colliding to create a supernova sized chain of events that catapult you into realms unimaginable for the average soul. Jealous hearts will fall at your feet as they have not the strength to stand in awe. Awash with envy, you smile and glide into heavenly versions of yourself from now until forever.

What to do next? Your task is clear – cherish your life, acknowledge all that got  you here and keep doing whatever it is you are doing. You are a force of nature, a timeless piece of renaissance art that nobody and nothing can remove from this wondrous time in your chronology of life.

Don’t forget to shuffle the cards for each deck! The first one is for your past, the second concerns your present, while the third – your future. Now, let the aqua flow!



The Four Of Pentacles sensibly sits on his assets.

How wise to protect this way. Sitting and guarding what means the most to you is a very noble thing to do. By no means do you wish to see your hard work go down the drain, so you will shield it, thank you very much. How does it feel though, to be sat so still and unable to move that you cannot fully wind down and enjoy life?

You may be financially stable, but what good is money if you don’t use it to make improvements in your life? Are you happy with those slippers that have a hole in? Does it make you feel like some sort of imposter to flash your money or time like it is a bottomless source? It doesn’t have to be this way. You can let go and avoid this possessive behaviour.

It won’t bode well in love all the while you are allowing jealousy to crop up at any given moment. There is no need to be so clingy, because I am certain your soul wants you for you. If only you saw it that way. To avoid paranoia in the work place, recentre your focus and avoid working with others where you can at least for the mean time and until your head senses a little more security.

Death is life running through your veins.

Like a rush of blood to the head, Death comes a knocking at a time you seek and are offered the sacred opportunity to let go of the past and release yourself into a brighter future. Do not fear this card, for Death is rarely a symbol of untimely demise. Instead, gather your belongings because adventures new are seeking you.

As you walk out of one door, it closes swiftly behind you. Perhaps you were ill prepared for this but just as you may begin to falter, another opens and lets in a bright light filled with hope and chances anew. This, like Death itself, is one of the most positive things to happen to you in recent times.

Like a metamorphosis, you have been cooped up in your cocoon for some time, and as you transform into a beautiful butterfly, you are getting ready to spread your wings and transition in any aspect of your life you deem fit. Today is your day!

The Four Of Swords basks in stillness.

There are events from times recent that you are urging yourself to rest from, and my goodness, do you need it. Pain is behind you now but as the worst is just over, you are not quite ready for ’better times’ yet. Instead, your need derives from the notion to pause, relax and protect your mind, body and soul afore you move on.

You are at peace with yourself, forgiving previous misfortunes and repelling all temptations to run ahead. You are your own sanctuary, recharging from potential trauma or loss. This may mean you taking a step back from loving others, as your focus shifts to yourself. Don’t feel guilty for any alone time you need, because life is about balance and our mental and physical health is imperative.

Perhaps at work you have gone above and beyond your job title in order to make others happy. This has left you feeling ragged and anxious. To shake this away and rejuvenate, you should look into booking some time off, perhaps go on a short break. Clear the metaphoric fog and your new dawn will present itself.

The Three Of Wands adds confidence to your journey.

You are certainly working towards a positive destination, dear soul. I can see you are making good progress with this, ensuring your planning is being adhered to. How good does it feel to see it all come to life? What you are laying down for yourself is not only going to serve you well now, but also in the future. A strong tree needs solid roots.

With this powerful momentum you have conjured, I have to remind you to keep your mind open. Sometimes, despite our best intentions, we can begin to slip into old habits of thinking and that is likely to restrict growth. I don’t think that would benefit you especially as you are working so hard, so make sure you are open to new thoughts and ideas.

You are expanding your life, like a breath of fresh air into the lungs. This is an exciting time in love as you consider commitments and the idea of stepping forward together. You may also be looking at your job and wondering if you could seek a more senior role. You know your wise head and fiery heart can handle this!

The King of Pentacles will provide you with encouragement to do your best.

You’ve a strong head on your shoulder, and this is the reason you are being noticed for your protective nature. This is just scratching at the surface though, as you run much deeper than this. What flows so naturally in your veins is the talented balance of being kind yet responsible. You know what is right, you know how to attain it and you are likely to pass your wisdom onto others around you.

You have flair to help others, and see the good in their intentions. This is vital in work or as a parent if you have people around you needing a boost of confidence. You offer that and more, because you re a master communicator and incredibly secure in yourself, with all aspects. Not only that, but you are generous with your time.

You take love seriously, and rightly so. It isn’t a concept to dabble in, or dismiss at the drop of a hat. You prefer to go all in, and share your heart the way it was intended. You find true love this way and your stable income will provide a secure future for you both.

Judgement calls forth your day of reckoning.

They say if it wasn’t for the past working out exactly how it did, we wouldn’t be where we are right now. Every little thing you have lived, failed and achieved has brought you to this day, and now is the time to evaluate where you have come from and what lies afore you. You may want to renew relationships or reaffirm your place in this world.

The purpose you seek is there awaiting you. As a human with a large heart,you, like myself, need reminding of our brilliance and capabilities from time to time. As you are reminded, you reflect. You may have the notion of being lost in a crowd. What difference do I make? What values can I bring to my world? You make a huge difference, and your values are stable and dependable.

You stream this into your work life, searching for ways in which you matter and it allows thought surrounding finances to shape. You now have the strength and ability to evaluate important relationships as you make the adjustments needed in order for continued growth. You are wise now.

’I grow and unearth my renewed love for myself and others’ – Judgement

This is it for today, traveler.

Come back tomorrow.

May the Life flow through your veins like the mighty Nile on the month of the flood. May you give birth to offsprings, numerous and healthy. May your tears be always tears of joy and never tears of sorrows.
