Tarot Card Meaning - High Priestess
Tarot Card Meaning – High Priestess

 

Tarot Card Meaning – High Priestess – Evergreen Readings represents the duality of our Divine Higher Self.   She whispers to us the sometimes contrary mysteries of our heart.  Some may call her our conscience or our intuition.

Tarot Card Meaning – High Priestess – Evergreen Readings shows up in a Tarot Reading when we intuitively experience the mysteries of our own soul and that of the Universe.  We become in awe of our own deep sense of knowing.  We lean upon the profound wisdom gathered from our own knowledge and experience.

In a Tarot Reading, when the High Priestess Card is pulled-out, it speaks of the Secrets of our future.  This Card reminds us of our true nature.  It is in our nature to desire a ‘true union of the soul’.  We want a true marriage with someone who will be happy only when both of the lovers are receptive to one another.  True receptivity in a marriage happens only when there is mutual love.

Upright:

When the High Priestess Card is upright, she speaks of the secret mysteries of our Intuitive Self.

Reversed:

When the High Priestess Card is reversed, she speaks of religious legalities.  She turns towards religious knowledge and doctrines, when she is not in a loving relationship.

If a female Querent:

If the Querent is a female, the High Priestess Card represents the Querent herself.

If a male Querent:

If the Querent is a male, then the High Priestess Card represents the woman who holds his interest.  This woman will want a true marriage and children from him.

Tarot Magic:

Place the High Priestess Card on your altar.  Meditate on your feelings and sentiments.  Listen for that little inner-voice.  Hear the whispers coming from your Intuition (your Higher Self).  Repeat a Tarot Affirmation to manifest material life.

Tarot Affirmation:

“I honor my Intuition”.

N.B.:  A shout-out to Yoav Ben Dov, author of “Tarot – The Open Reading”, and creator of  “The CBD Tarot de Marseille”, who has so graciously given me permission to use this picture of his wonderful High Priestess.

Magus of Power Tarot Card – Tarot Reading By Evergreen

Magus of Power Tarot Card - Tarot Reading By Evergreen
Magus of Power Tarot Card – Tarot Reading By Evergreen

Magus of Power Tarot Card – Tarot Reading By Evergreen, is the Magician Card in your Tarot Deck.  It represents the beginning of a successful material production.  He is always a boy transitioning into becoming a man.

At his best, the Magician is the Archetype of the Path of Awareness.  At his worst, the Magician has well planned-out, and made ready the tools he needs so to put into effect his “transformation spell”; he is the Trickster Wannabe.  His intent is to become free of the constraints placed upon him by others(1).  If you must remember one thing from this article, remember that the Magician is still is a “Wannabe”; he is not yet a successful shape-shifter.

Magus of Power Tarot Card – Tarot Reading By Evergreen according to the Masters:

In his Pictorial Key to the Tarot, A.E. Waite accurately describes the Magician as a male person who is psychologically still a boy with a motive.  According to Mr. Waite, this boy’s motive is “the Divine motive of man reflecting God, the will in liberation of the union with that which is above”.  Waite goes on to say, “Plus the unity of individual being on all planes, in the fixation thereof”.  In other words, the Magician Card represents a boy wanting to become free of his father.  He is still a boy at heart, but he wants to become his own man.  This, even if he is 50 years old.

Alejandro Jodorowsky, in his book The Way of the Tarot The Spiritual Teacher of the Cards, agrees with Waite.  Mr. Jodorowsky describes the Magician Card as a male “organizing reality in conformance with his intelligence”.  Jodorowsky goes on to say that he is “a spirit that seeks to find himself within the human world and find solutions for material life”.

Magus of Power Tarot Card – Tarot Reading By Evergreen, the accurate reading:

In an accurate Tarot Reading, place a clarification card on the Magician.  The Clarification Card will help to divine what his plan is.  It is highly important to understand the Magician Card, and to learn how to read it as accurately as possible.  In this way, your Tarot Reading will be spot on!  After all is said and done, Tarot is about seeing the Truth to your Querent’s situation.

Upright:

When this card comes-up in a Reading, it represents the male Querent.  It can also represent someone else who is in the Querent’s environment.  This other person would also be a male who is still a boy at heart, and who is cunningly deceitful.  Good News is that this cunning person has not yet put into effect his juggling-act.

Bad News is that this other male person’s goal is to part the Querent with her/his money.  He plans on using deception and to cheat.  In other words, he bullshits and/or downright lies.

Reversed:

When the Magician Card is pulled-out upside-down, or is in a negative position in your Spread, it represents a ‘sickness’.  This type of sickness is very likely a mental illness.  This Magician plans to lay snares that risk going beyond taking money from your Querent.

Magus of Power Tarot Card - Tarot Reading By Evergreen
Magus of Power Tarot Card – Tarot Reading By Evergreen

Magus of Power Tarot Card – Tarot Reading By Evergreen says, do not let your mind get confused.  The Magician Card speaks of a boy who is not yet committed to making his “transformation spell” a reality.  As it stands, he is still a ‘Trickster Wannabe’.  Whereas, the Two of Pentacles Card in your Tarot Deck is the Magician who has now definitely “transformed himself” into a fox; or is a fox transformed into a man.

Tarot Card Meaning Three of Wands Power Success

Tarot Card Meaning Three of Wands Power and Success
Tarot Card Meaning Three of Wands Power Success

Tarot Card Meaning Three of Wands Power Success represents you and the power success you can possibly hope for.  You can now harvest… Moreover, you now teach it well to others.

This said, you might have a sense from Tarot Card Meaning Three of Wands Power and Success –  that the parade might be passing you by…  Is it really though?

To answer that question, let us understand first the true meaning of power and success. We achieve power and success when we have reached our goals and purpose in life. Ralph Waldo Emerson, a man who wrote essays, wrote about the meaning of true success. He wrote: “To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded”

As we grow in maturity and wisdom, we do not wish to be put out to pasture. We still want to be useful and productive. We feel we still have so very much more to offer the world. Moreover, we do indeed!

When you begin to feel this way, perhaps it is not the time for you to quit on yourself. As Unknown once said, “Footprints on the sands of time are not made by sitting down.” You are not a quitter, so keep moving forward with the rest of your life. Look deeper within yourself, and find all that knowledge and wisdom you never dared to manifest yet in your life…

Tarot Card Meaning Three of Wands Power and Success says that the parade is not passing you by. As you send your children and grandchildren out into the world, have a high opinion of them. They are your gift to the world. For it is now self-evident, you have shared your power and success with those who come after you.

As you let them go out into the world at large so to seek their fortunes, be proud of who they have become. After all, they carry a part of you along with them… They will also achieve power and success in their own right.  As it is for you, your children and grandchildren will also have their own Tarot Card Meaning Three of Wands Power and Success – when their turn comes along…

Place the Three of Wands card upon your altar. Meditate upon its picture. Repeat the following affirmation:

“As I grow older now, I send forth my experience and knowledge out into the world…”

Tarot Card Meanings Two Pentacles Trickster

Tarot Card Meanings Two Pentacles Trickster
Tarot Card Meanings Two Pentacles Trickster

 

Tarot Card Meanings Two Pentacles Trickster is a fox and a snake.  A man who is cunning, dishonest, and foolish.  He is difficult to control and predict.

Obviously, the Two of Pentacles in a Tarot spread does not represent you. It usually represents a man (sometimes a woman) who is in your environment. He is a crook.

You can only discern this greasy type of person, once it is too late. He slithers his way close to you without suspicious. He is clever in that way.

Tarot Card Meanings Two Pentacles Trickster, speaks of a troublemaker with a plan to sell you a false bill of goods… If that is not bad enough, wait until you meet his fellow companions, the two snakes. Where you see the troublemaker, you see the two snakes. Where you see the two snakes, you see the troublemaker.

A troublemaker almost always hides behind a mask. His mask is how he wants you and people to see him. When alone, he takes-off his mask, so to be himself for a while.

At first glance, the Two of Pentacles might depict this wrongdoer as a man juggling his resources, who had better make ends meet. No matter the flood of emotions that assails him, he does not lose his sure-footing. At all times, he remains focused, levelheaded, and balanced.

However, if you study the details of the Llewellyn’s Two of Pentacles Tarot Card, you will see the juggler’s from a different perspective. His feet appear as if sliding or slipping unsteadily on a loose or slippery surface. At his feet, are his two familiars, the snakes.

Different Tarot Readers interpret this card in different ways than I do. They readily describe it as meaning: resources and organization. Let us give credit where credit is due. If you must remember one thing about this card, remember this much. That your “resources” are getting “organized” – for you! Or should I say, re-organized for you by a ‘trickster’.

Beware of the one organizing your resources for you. Beware because, if you pay closer attention at the image of this Llewellyn’s card, you will see a ‘fox tail’ hanging-out of the juggler’s coat.  I give this card a deeper meaning for you than what first meets the eye.

The tail tells the story. It tells a story about a fox that is now discernible and who needs to be controlled. The character, who is the focus in this card, is now a cunning and sly fox who has transformed himself (Shape-shifted). Part fox, part man, he is now a “trickster” leading you astray…

Tarot Card Meanings Two of Pentacles Trickster represents a criminal in your life whose ship has sailed. Rather than going out into the world to make his fortune, he turns his back to his ship when it sails. He stays there, putting on a good show of good fortune for you.  He teaches you what it looks like to draw prosperity to you. He will volunteer to teach you how to become fortunate, by helping you part with your money.

In some ordinary card playing decks, Tarot card meanings Two Pentacles Trickster is changed into The Joker Card.  This Joker Card has a deeper meaning, one just like the meaning of the Tarot card meanings Two Pentacles Trickster.

A Joker, in an ordinary deck of playing cards,  is a man who empress’ you. He empress you by ‘pretending’ to be a Fool. A Fool who knows enough to play pranks on you. In the Royal Courts of old, people were amused and sometimes irritated by the Court Jester…

Tarot Judgement Card Meaning Alarm Bell

Tarot Judgement Card Meaning Alarm Bell

 

The Trumpet beacons us to pay close attention to a situation or person in our life. It is time to wake up and smell the coffee before it’s too late!

There is no time like now to make some dearly needed changes in our lives. It may be that in the past, another person’s ways were cute. But now, they are not cute anymore.  When you hear an alarm bell warning you about something a person does, you may want to pay close attention to that person.

After everything is said and done, now is the time to discern what is really going on in your life.  Discernment is the ability to judge well. When your inner alarm bell goes off (The Trumpet), it is your subconscious telling you that now is the time to look at what you don’t want to see. Perhaps were you making excuses for someone in your life, or for yourself?

In the new ground breaking Tarot book, Secrets of the Waite-Smith Tarot, Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin describe the Judgement Card – as an “Alarm Bell Card”. When this Alarm Bell Card is pulled during a Tarot reading, it means that the person being read for is now aware of something “beyond the here and now”.

To become aware of something beyond now, means that we have a deep sense of knowing about it.  We not only know it, we understand it.  In his book on Tarot, The Spiritual Teacher in the Cards, Alejandro Jodorowsky also explains the meaning of the Judgement card:  “the deep nature of a person called to consciousness”. “You hear the call of the Trumpet when a force defying death is at work”.

Tarot Judgement Card Meaning Alarm Bell, offers two choices. To either wake up and smell the coffee, or listen to the lies you tell yourself.  Either way, the choice is yours to make. Your destiny is not marked in stone. I truly believe that when the Judgement Card – Alarm Bell –  CALLS YOU TO ACTION, you can do or say something to make a positive change in your life. No matter how difficult the truth is, it is still better than the lie you tell yourself.

Take a chance on yourself.  Answer the call of the Trumpet.  And awaken the truth in your situation, so to be able to move forward without fear!

If the Hermit could speak, he would say, “I need to go forward, but I can’t right now”.  At one point or another in our lives, we are confronted with a seemingly impossible obstacle that brings us to a dead stop. Instinctively, we try to look ahead – so to get our bearings.

At such a time in our lives, we try to get our bearings.  We try to figure out what to do next.  But first, we need to understand the true meaning of what is happening to us.

This is when we tend to isolate ourselves from everyone else.  We lick our wounds, we rest, and think, think, think.  We think allot in hope of finding a solution to our dilemma, we turn to self-help books so to research the subject and to find a better solution to our situation. Only to discover that all the while, the answer was there deep within ourselves; in our past.

Tarot Cards Meaning Hermit Card
Tarot Cards Meaning Hermit Card

In Tarot, it is customary to interpret a card has relating to the past – when the tarot character is looking towards his left.  In this Wickwillow Hermit card, the Hermit is clearly – entirely turned towards the left side of the cards.  This indicates that the Hermit has stopped, has turned around, and his looking behind him – in the direction from where has come from.

Spending a healthy amount of time by yourself, is highly beneficial to us. It gives us dearly needed time to heal and to grow stronger. This is time spent meditating about where we come from, what path we are on now in our life, and how to go ahead – beyond our fears.  Our fears are the blocks along the way to where we want to get to.  Solitude is vital to your emotional, physical, and spiritual health.

When I look at the Llewellyn’s Hermit Card, I see a man lifting-up his torch – so to see into the darkness.  What does he hope to see out there in the shadows?  Is he shining his light for someone to find his way back from the shadows?  Or is he the one trying to find his way back?  The answer, my friend, is in the lit flame on the torch.

The lit flame on the torch represents ‘hope’!  Hope to return to safe-harbour, home.  You know the old saying, “let your little light shine!  Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine”.  When you let your little light shine, it lights the way back home, not just for other people, but for you too!

The Hermit may also represent your higher divine-self shining its light inspire your ‘ego’ with.  Your ego is very proud, it would rather not accept any help – so to be able to do what it wants – all the time.  It often gets you in trouble.  Whenever you hear yourself saying that you feel you are your own worst enemy, you can bet your ego just got you in trouble again.  That is why your divine-self tries to guide it with wisdom; it tries to give your ego a sense of direction in life.

Tarot Magic:

Tarot Cards Meaning Hermit Card, is the need to go forward in our life.  In the Golden Dawn Tarot System, the Hermit card is the Ninth Key, the 20th Path.  Its magical title is the Magus of the Voice of Life.  Jupiter acting through Virgo upon Sol.  This means that there is a powerful force upon your sexual drive.  If you are getting a sense that your life is on Tilt, perhaps you may do well to meditate upon the sexual domain of your life.  Call upon the Angel of Virgo to impart wisdom upon you in that area of your life.

Tarot Affirmation:

“I look for hope in all domains of my life”.

Just like the man in the Hermit card, after a time you also will begin to feel renewed hope in your life.  You will then need to break your isolation, to share your discoveries with others. When this happens, you will reach-out to them and they will be able to reach you again.

If you can remember but one thing about The Hermit Card, remember this much. You experience the need to go beyond your fears so to reach others and to be reachable in turn. If you feel you are on Tilt right now, think, think, think with  knowledge, understanding, and wisdom.

Tarot Card Meaning Knight of Cups Inner-life Reflection

The Knight of Cups

I ride upon my horse

knowing not to where my mount brings me

on this Autumn Day

(Haiku poem by: Evergreen) ©

 

Today’s Tarot card is the Knight of Cups.  It represents our inner-life… Our inner-life is all we imagine it to be.  It is fluid, emotional, and sentimental.  We are receptive at that level.

Because we are receptive, we are open to learning at a deeper level.  We learn more about ourselves, and about others around us.  It is with our emotions and our creativity that we reach others; likewise, we want them to reach us.

By looking at the Knight of Cups card, our path is not revealed to us.  Our path is unknown; it is a path of self-discovery.  In this domain of our life, the domain of our emotions and of creativity, we let ourselves be guided down the road less travelled.   No one goes there but our courageous self.

The Knight of Cups card depicts you on a Spiritual Quest.  You do not know where you are ahead to, but you are full of self-confidence and hope.  The Rider represents you.  The Horse represents your ego.  You and your ego must become friends; you must be able to form a team together; you must work as one to fulfill your mission in life.

But for now, your mission is to tame your horse (your beast, your ego).  It is by the taming of your ego, that you will be able to hear your Higher-self when it speaks to you.  But first, a strong action is required of you.

You must die to yourself, so your Higher-self may live.  Since the beginning of this Spiritual Quest, you have danced to the beat of your own drum.  You have walked at your own pace.  You have listened to your own voice.

Today, you are learning to listen to your horse.  Your horse is learning to listen to you.  Each of you discover each other’s feelings, wants, and needs.  You befriend your ego, you tame it, you learn how to lead it.  It will obey you.

Tarot Card Meaning Knight of Cups Inner-life Reflection
Tarot Card Meaning Knight of Cups Inner-life Reflection

In summary, the Knight of Cups speaks to your overwhelming need to rule over your heart with self-detachment.  Your basic need is to communicate from your heart in a creative way – with others.  While keeping one foot in and one foot out of their situation, you can lead your own life.

You are aware of your own feelings, sentiments, and creative energy.  You accept the limits of your own passions.  You have a sense of “deep knowing” that you are in reaction to the forces and energies that have a profound influence upon your inner-life.  The Knight of Cups reflects all this to you…

The Three Of Cups

Under the Moon I am,
With sisters, I am helped,
On this Summer’s night!

(Haiku poem by: Evergreen) ©

 

As I shuffle my Tarot deck this morning, I feel fully energized! This is due to the influence of the Moon. The Moon is going to be full tonight; it’s the August 10th Super Full Moon (the Sturgeon Full Moon). So it is not surprising to me, that I pull out the ‘Three of Cups’. And what a Tarot card!

Indeed, the Three of Cups says to joyfully establish bonds of friendship.  Friends share activities that make them stick together through thick and thin.  The Three of Cups reminds us to seek our friends out, and to show them how we appreciate them.

There is an old saying that sort of goes like this: “those who resemble each other, assemble together”. This means, when you seek out like-minded people as yourself, they will want to be with you.  Like minded people are those who work towards the same goal – along with you.  When people work together so to achieve success, there is  cooperation. When people strive along with you towards building your success, you can’t all help but to be ‘bettered’.

If you are looking for a job, you are highly encouraged to network colleagues and friends. The more people you meet that share and support your dreams for a better, easier life, the more your chances of obtaining success in the pursuit of your happiness. That is why the Three of Cups reminds you to go out into the world, and to be with people who will celebrate along with you – your success.  Those you can safely call friends.

Once you do find this kind of people, take the time to establish yourself well with them; by becoming long-term friends with them. Take the time to build good and strong bonds, by creating a deep ‘rapport’ with them. And also, show these people your deepest appreciation of them.

Show your new-found colleagues and friends, and your old ones, how much you really do honor them. Do this, by throwing a party for them on their birthdays. By remembering them at Christmas and on the New Year. By inviting them over for dinner, on Sundays.

It is by taking the time to be with them, and by making an effort toward making them feel that they really do mean the world to you, that you endear yourself to them.  Make times to prove to them that you consider them as family; when people are made to feel like family, you endear yourself to them. In other words, treat them as people of high value to you, and you will become likewise – of high value to them!

The Three of Cups Tarot Card is the perfect card for you on this August 10th Super Full Moon. There is nothing more beneficial to you, on this full Moon, than to be agreeable to spending it with people for whom you hold on dearly to. So go ahead tonight, and work on ‘binding’ friendships.  (To read about being under the Moon with Sisters, click on ABOUT TAROT MAGICAL CORRESPONDENCES).
