Hi and Welcome to your Weekly Tarot Guage:)

What a week it’s been  with the new cycle that was ushered in with the Wheel of Fortune last week! WOW!

We are juggling resources this week.

The 2 of Pentacles is about balancing, adapting and weighing things up.  How will you play the balancing act?

How will you schedule your week so that all the important enagements fit in?

How will you plan your project to match your resources?

How will you see to the greater good of your family and personal committments?

The 2 of Pentacles is a minor arcana. The minor arcana are cards that reflect daily activities that are within our control.

In the latter image of the 2 of Pentacles, which is the more traditional image, the waves reflect the turbulent seas that the ships sail through. So too, the man is able to juggle through life as the challenges demand.

It is therefore necessary to take a deep breath in, ground ourselves and make a cup of tea:) Then make a list of all the things that you need to do. By making a list, you may find that some things will fall of the list of priorities, whilst other issues may move up the list.

Delegate if you have people to help you, this way you can get more things done faster.

But mainly, you are going to have to do more with less and adapt. That is the overall message. Keep calm as you go through this. Getting bent out of shape is only going to rob you of your peace of mind and clarity.

Maybe get a trusted confidante to help you cut corners where you have identified opportunities to do so. Or try to get a more streamlined plan together to dovetail with and maximise what already exists.

Remember you are the Captain of your ship and Tarot is your guide.

Have a brillant week.

Much Love

This week sees another universal energy, the Wheel of Fortune. As one cycle ends, another begins. Enter stage left, Lady Luck:) Shake of all the old, stale, unused thought & things – better yet recycle and give away to those who can put it to better use.  One man’s poison is another man’s meat. Charity begins at home.

If you want to flow, let things go. What stays, what goes?

You would have heard, ” What goes up must come down,” similary, you can’t stay down forever.

It’s a turning point. Be aware of your cues to act. Take advantage of the impetus for the right action.

You are the Captain of your ship, Tarot is your guide.

The Empress marks a time to take care of yourself. She denotes material wealth,luxury, harvest, fertility, abundance, growth, cultivation.

How do you take the next steps to grow your business? Get a mentor or get some advice.

The Empress is the ultimate energy of that ‘one door closes and another opens’. The key is to embrace it with your activities.

This week you are urged to stand up for your values and principles. This need not be an outright battle. We are presented with opportunities to rise above the circumstances by electing an emotionally intelligent approach that harnesses our strengths.

It is important to be aware of the positions that you are taking in situations. Is it serving your highest best? Will it further the best outcome?

Be firm in your resolve especially in relation to the bullies we encounter. The universe supports you.

This is an interesting card for a week that celebrates love with the heavily commercialised Valentine’s Day.

Are you defending your love? Are you fighting to be loved? Are you afraid of being hurt by love?

Love is a basic need. No one is meant to be alone. There are more than 7 billion people in the world offering you different types of love. Make the circle bigger. Loving is a strength. Let love be victorious.

Have a brilliant week.

Love and Light

The Week Ahead – 29 January – 4 February 2017

The Week Ahead

8_of_swords - Morgan Greer Tarot
8_of_swords – Morgan Greer Tarot


The recurring theme from last week is quite remarkable. Last week, we had a visit from the Devil, which is a major arcana reflecting life lessons beyond our control. This week, we see the 8 of swords that is a minor arcana that highlights how our entrapments are all within our control.

This week we should apply unconventional wisdom to push ourselves out of a situation that seems stuck.  How else can we remove self-sabotage, self-imposed limitations, blinkers?

If we look at this card closely, we see a castle behind the female figure. But she can’t see it because she has not removed the blind and ties that can be easily taken off. The swords around her can also be moved out of her way. She can use the swords to cut the loose ties off and free herself.

It requires an action. It requires a change in mindset. She is not as stuck as she thinks. The obstacles are within her control. Perceptions are misleading.

The castle represents a dream or goal, achievement, fulfilment, stability. How can you free yourself to get to the castle?






The Week Ahead : 22 – 28 January 2017

Practical Tarot

Tarot is an enabling tool for self-improvement. There is nothing insurmountable when we acknowledge our own responsibility in our lives.

Many people are addicted to playing the victim and life therefore reflects that pattern back. After all, life is a mirror. We need to be open enough to reflect on our own complicity in our lives.

It is not just  action but  inaction or a docile approach to life that requires contemplation.

If a tarot reader tells you that you are cursed or doomed, you need to be highly suspicious about the integrity of that reader.

It is possible to have a difficult period but it does pass. Everything changes. Nothing stays the same.

Using tarot for everyday guidance, raises your awareness and sharpens your attention and focus. A morning-noon-evening spread is a 3-card spread that helps you to learn the tarot faster but it also helps you to pre-empt the flow of your day. You are therefore more prepared to take on your day with the guidance of your guardian angels.

Each card can be read as an action that you need to take. This is a valuable way to constantly move forward with Tarot as your trusted bff.

The Week Ahead

The Devil - Morgan-Greer Tarot
The Devil – Morgan-Greer Tarot


Is it just me or do my fellow South Africans also see a springbok in this card?:)

For everyone’s ease of reference, here’s a springbok.


Tarot never fails to be relevant.

The Devil is one of those cards that people find scary or problematic but calm down it is just a picture on a card!

Some religions believe in the Devil and others don’t. I personally don’t believe. Each of us have a shadow self that plays to our darkest tendencies but even these are choices. We have free will. There are consequences to our actions.

The Devil is a symbol of our egos.

This week we need to ask ourselves whether we are allowing small-mindedness  to overcome our decisions. Are we overwhelmed by negative influences around us? Do our demons need to be tamed? What shackles us?  How can we loosen the grip and free ourselves?

The saying ‘ the devil may care’ springs to mind.  This card is also a sign that you are too serious and need to let your hair down and have some fun.

On that note, have a brilliant week. Embrace the spirit of fun!

Take care
