These are the cards that the Tarot has drawn for you. You may want to save or print this page if you would like to ponder their messages later.


The Past position in the reading refers to recent events and challenges that just took place, things that lead up to the present situation, and your role in them.

Judgement is the twenty-first card in the Major Arcana, and is given the number 20 to indicate the subconscious, intuitive mind of the High Priestess (2) experiencing the vast, pure potential of the Fool (0). The souls of the dead rise up from the darkness of the grave to heed the call of Judgement. Gabriel, the archangel, blows the horn to signal the time when each person will have to answer for his or her deeds. Gabriel’s hair appears like flames, calling to mind images of the phoenix, the mythological creature that rises from its own ashes, reborn. Judgement is the awakening of the souls, and the time to return to the realms of spirit, leaving the physical world behind. The coffins appear to be floating in an ocean, and a strange blue aura covers everything beneath the angel’s horn. This ocean is the subconscious that is only experienced in waves while the spirit resides in the body. When the soul is called forth, it is fully immersed in the collective unconscious.

Judgement in your past denotes a milestone in the development of your soul. It recalls a time in your past when you walked through fire, and came out of it transformed, and renewed. You were liberated from your past, and this card marks your awareness of this freedom. Acknowledging that you reached this point and releasing any leftover negative reminders from the “old” you were the final steps in the process.


The Present position in the reading represents what is happening right now. Typically, this is what triggers you to seek out a reading. This card can often help you to understand what steps to take next.

Queen of Pentacles
The receptive aspect of Earth, the Queen refers to you, or someone who strongly influences your life in the situation in question, but does not have to be female. Her outdoor throne, surrounded by Earth’s prosperity and abundance, denotes that she takes charge of money matters in a cautious and practical manner, and that she is successful in her business dealings. Her productivity and creativity are symbolized by the appearance of several blooming plants, and the hare, traditionally associated with fertility. This person values her self-sufficient independence, and works hard to maintain her “creature comforts”. The Queen reminds us to return to our connection with the earth, and to tap into the creative force in everything.


The Future position in teh reading describes what is just around the corner. It’s an official “heads up” about where the situation is heading and how you may navigate through it towards the best possible outcome.

Four of Wands
The successful completion of projects is indicated by the Four of Wands. The garland hanging from the four wands suggests that your goals will soon be achieved. The castle represents the solidity and splendor of what you will create. The characters in the image hold the harvest of their efforts high in the air in celebration of their success. You should soon enjoy the well-earned fruits of completion.
