We could all use a bit of guidance in our life from time to time, and what better way to discover the future than a card reading?
Take a look at these three cards and choose the one you feel most connected to at this moment. Behind each of them is powerful symbolic meaning of the Tarot, so your choice will help you to see what you can expect from this upcoming week. Get ready, now choose your card:
Card number 1 – The Queen of Cups
February will be the month of creation for you. The Queen symbolizes fertility and growth in all things, and signifies an increase in productivity. The Queen of Cups is among the most loving archetypes in the tarot deck. She indicates compassion, love, and concern for ourselves and our fellow man.
Generally the Queen of Cups indicates female energy that is solidly “in your corner,” that women in your life are very much supportive of you and/or that a woman will come to your aid. The queen of Cups also reminds us to treat ourselves with love and compassion. No matter who and where you are, there are things in you that are worthy of love and respect.
Work: In the context of work the Queen usually indicates a literal woman who will be very helpful to you. Often this woman has light colored hair. The queen reminds us to bring love and compassion to our work, and that this is possible even if we work in a factory with objects all day rather than people. Things are probably better in your working world when this card appears than you are realizing. Think positively.
Love: When the Queen of Cups comes up in the context of love, she often indicates a very positive outlook about a relationship. If you are single and she appears, it’s a good indicator that you should “get out and mingle,” as a new, very positive, romance may be on the horizon. The thing is, when she appears, it is easy to get carried away regarding love. Keep your balance and your perspective. Even with the excitement of brand new love, it’s important to keep track of the other things happening in our lives.
Card number 2 – Justice
February will be a month of finding balance. Justice deals with the idea of karma and the law of cause and effect, stating that all events, and all people, are connected. It’s important to remember that not everything you are dealing with, however, is a direct result of your own actions or karma. Sometimes you will be called upon to deal with the results of the actions of someone you care about, and this can sometimes be as difficult and demanding as it is when you’re up against something that is completely of your own making. Don’t blame yourself unnecessarily.
This card evokes the need for fairness, balance, and harmony. Operate in as balanced and reasonable a fashion as you can. This includes in how you think about and treat yourself. If you are directly involved with a court case, it is likely to be resolved, at least in large degree, in your favor.
Work: You need to be sure that your work/life balance is where it needs to be. Too much emphasis on either throws the other into balance. For most people, one or the other comes more easily to us; be sure that regardless of which field (personal life or work) you feel most comfortable in, that you are giving the other part of life as much attention and energy. Balance is necessary in order to thrive.
Love: If you are questioning whether you and your long-term partner are likely to stay together, often when this card appears, the answer is that you are likely to choose to go your separate ways. On the other hand, if you are single, this is a time when commitment may be coming your way very shortly. Stay clear about what you most want from relationships, and you are likely to “find it” that much sooner.
Card number 3 – The Magician
February will be a month of new beginnings for you. The Magician is about making higher and better use of all of one’s power. Spiritual, emotional, and otherwise. This is another card that often signifies new beginnings and great expectations. This is a very powerful, positive omen in a reading. This card reminds us that we have the power to make a difference, in our lives and in the greater world, if we simply make a point to try.
Work: There will be an improvement in your work/career life. Particularly if your work is in a creative field this is a time when your suggestions and work will be met with appreciation and may lead to bigger and better things. If you are out of work or thinking about changing jobs this is an auspicious time to do so. Even if you think you’ve exhausted all the possibilities you haven’t so if necessary go back and repeat all the steps you have already taken and try again.
Love: If you are in the market for a new romance, this is a time when you are likely to meet someone new. Right now someone out there somewhere is looking for you just as you are looking for them. Whether they find you or not will depend on you. Don’t sit at home expecting Mr/Miss Right to walk up your garden path and knock on the door because they probably won’t. You need to be out there making yourself available to be found and this is an excellent time to do just that.
