The Week Ahead : 22 – 28 August 2016

Timing Technique

The timeframe of an event in a tarot reading is a frequently asked question, even though there are no absolutes. Methods for interpreting time are an important skill for a reader to have.

One simple way to determine timeframe uses just the four Aces. The Aces represent the root force of the powers of the elements, and time sequencing refers to the quality and pace of elements. So, fire (Wands) represent days, air (Swords) represents weeks, water (Cups) represents months, and the slowest earth (Pentacles) would represent a year or more.

The four Aces are also each assigned to a season – Wands (Spring), Cups (Summer), Swords (Autumn) and Pentacles (Winter).

Alternatively, a timing tarot spread can be used. Look at Living Tarot’s YoutubeVideo on Video Page or

It is important to try out different methods to see what works for you.

Tarot Card of the Week

Eight of Cups

The Eight of Cups guides us to reflect on what does not serve us anymore. What can we let go of and walk away from? Often we invest a great deal of ourselves into projects, situations or people but do not see a return on investment or even a reasonable progress or some sign that things will change. It does not feel worth the effort. As a result, you may be prepared to walk away and pursue something else. Are you where you had planned to be? What action can you take to get there? Move towards your dreams and goals. Pleasing others should not be your driving force. Sometimes we get stuck in the run of the mill and forget ourselves. Be true to yourself. There’s no need for radical action. Be pragmatic in how you plan on changing course.
