On its most basic level, the Chariot is about getting what you want. It implies war, a struggle, and an eventual, hard-won victory over enemies, obstacles, nature, the uncertainties inside you. This card is about efforts that lead to success. This is not yet victory that comes knocking on your door so don’t be fooled. You will need to put some effort in, and there could be some bumps along the way, but with the effort and determination of the Chariot, victory is almost definitely assured. The Chariot card reminds us that winning isn’t everything nor “the only thing.” It is, rather, the start of things.
The Chariot Card, when Reversed, may show that you are doing the bare minimum in life to make things work. You have lost the spark of Joy that makes life a blast. The Chariot reversal meaning can be an indication of lack of control and direction over your life. You are at the mercy of the opposing forces and the obstacles, and cannot seem to muster the strength to take over. You need to get your confidence back. Instead of worrying about the things you cannot control, focus your energies on what you have and strive to change the situations that are not good for you.
The Two of Swords represents avoidance, situations of difficult decisions and weighing out options. The Two of Swords shows us a woman sitting with her back to a body of water. The tide appears to be out. The woman holds two Swords crossed at her heart. The Swords held at this position give us the impression that she is protecting her heart from something. In a relationship, the Two of Swords suggests that you have to make a painful decision causing upset and distress. Your inability to make a decision is part of a master plan to maintain your power. Your plan to gain control should work better than you imagined.
The Reversed Two of Swords has tensions beginning to thaw. There is real potential here to put an end to an age-old argument between friends or family. Once the truth is out in the open, you do not have to carry the burden of pretense anymore and are now free to move on with your life. This may be easier to do than you imagined as you feel a weight lifted off both your mind and heart. If you are currently single, this card can represent your anxiety about dating. Putting yourself “out there” is hard. You will get more comfortable with dating and opening yourself to others with a little practice.
The High Priestess is a leader with common sense. She is a reminder that you don’t know everything in a situation but you have the intelligence to sort it all out. Her appearance in a reading can signify that it is time for you to listen to your intuition rather than prioritizing your intellect and conscious mind. You have all the wisdom and knowledge you need. The High Priestess Tarot card is a card of spirituality and wisdom. When this card appears it is a good time to connect with your inner voice and intuition and to trust your higher power for you are smarter than most.
Even reversed, the High Priestess is a very spiritual card. The reversed High Priestess card is a sign that you are repressing your own feelings. This leaves you overly dependent on others, desperate for their approval and validation. It could be warning you of someone close to you who is not what they seem. It is likely that this person is completely self-absorbed. Because of their immense selfishness, they will not be supportive with any of your own needs or endeavors. As this is a very spiritual card, take some time and space to meditate and you will understand the message being sent to you.
The Page of Pentacles suggests new opportunities for financial development and manifestation of goals. In this Card, the Page is seen examining the Pentacle he holds, for any defects. When this Card appears, it is time to think about your future, what you are going to do, and how you are going to establish long-term financial security. He asks you to think success and then go out and make it happen. The Page of Pentacles asks you to get out into nature as often as you can. Get moving, get active and feel alive. The Page of Pentacles generally bases his relationships on long-term goals. He or she is not one for jumping in and out of relationships.
The Reversed Page of Pentacles is doing a lot of thinking about what he wants to do, but with very little practical or physical application. The Page of Pentacles Reversed symbolizes financial problems that are totally consuming you at present. Lack of money weighs heavily on you and you may be at a loss as to how you are going to manage. If you have not done the necessary groundwork, then it will be hard to achieve the results you desire. What you want and what is realistically possible at this stage may be in total conflict. In relationships don’t expect a lot of effort from the other person. They can be very lazy.
The Ten of Wands symbolizes hard work, added responsibilities and burdens. When The Ten of Wands appears, we see what is going on in the imagery. Here we see the culmination and consequences of too much energy, enthusiasm and activity beginning to take its toll. This Card suggests that you are under immense pressure and are finding life a huge struggle. You are extremely busy, with not a moment to catch your breath. In your relationship, things may be very different behind closed doors than they are in the open. You may be concealing problems, and these need to be addressed.
The Ten of Wands Reversed often points to a situation where someone is being taken advantage of by others. These certain others are quite happy to keep doing it because the person they are taking advantage of never complains. Exhausted by the weight of your commitments and obligations, you may be denying your own personal needs. If you are in a relationship, something may be hidden or concealed from you at the moment. Your partner may be holding something back from you. You may have to accept that your relationship is going nowhere or that it all seems too much of a struggle. If you are single, now is not the best time for a new relationship.
The Seven of Cups is a sign that you need to come out of the fantasy world and have faith that your creativity can help bring you new opportunities. It represents wishful thinking and projecting into the future about what you would like to create, rather than taking action here in the present to make it happen. It usually appears when we are in the presence of dreamers who may be having problems realizing their dreams. It is time to take responsibility and decide the best way to follow your dreams and the risks you are willing to take. For singles, love will come knocking at your door, be ready!
The Reversed Seven of Cups appears when you are overwhelmed by choice and cannot move forward. When this card comes up in your reading you need to be highly mindful of the choices that you are making. When it comes up in the Reversed position, there will be excess worry or feelings of insecurity. Know that there are options present that you aren’t seeing. You may have to be creative in your solutions to find them. Start by having high hopes for the future. Now get out there and make the future that you want happen. Stop spending so much time sitting on the couch and waiting for signs.
