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.

Knight of Cups
The Knight of Cups, dressed in blue to denote his sensitivity and emotional nature, signifies a dreamy, caring, loving individual from your past. This Knight pursued his thoughts and fantasies, and intuitively attuned to the needs of others. He may signify a lover who did not wish to commit, who was attractive, but passive. He did what he believed in, and was considered a charmer...someone you knew, or was this you?


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.

Six of Swords
The Six of Swords represents a retreat that you are in the process of taking. You have been dealing with heavy stress, signified by the choppy water behind the boat. This card can also indicate that you feel “haunted” by someone or something, and you seek closure. You are in the process of leaving this behind, setting forth for the calmness of still waters. You are learning to balance your mental state, evidenced by the swords that do not fall though the boat is in motion. You are also the protector in the situation. Your loved ones are relying on you to carry them away from troubled waters. You won’t let them down.


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.

The World
The World is the twenty-second card in the Major Arcana, and is given the number 21 to indicate the subconscious mind of the High Priestess (2) uniting completely with the conscious mind of the Magician (1). A figure dances in the center of a giant victory wreath. The creatures that symbolize the four elements have materialized, taking on more realistic forms. The dancer is widely considered a hermaphrodite, symbolizing the unity of the masculine and feminine aspects to form a complete whole. The wreath is adorned with two red sashes, each one forming the sign of infinity. These symbolize the eternal cycle of life, death, and rebirth. The dancer passes through the wreath, entering a new phase of development, holding two wands. These wands channel the energy outward and inward, in an endless flow. The Wheel has come full circle, and the Dance of Life begins again, coiling ever upward toward divinity.

The World in your future indicates unlimited potential put into experienced hands: the opportunity of a lifetime. Its image literally states “the sky’s the limit”. If you have been waiting for your chance, this will be IT. You will have the tools to accomplish your goal, and the door will be open. The World is a card of action. Of all the Major Arcana, only the first (The Fool) and the last (The World) show movement. While The Fool is like the dawn of creation and its promise, the World is like the hallmark of self-actualization. The benefits in store for you are truly as limitless as the cosmos this card represents.
