Your Ten Card Tarot Reading
A full and complete answer to your question in ten cards lies below. First, observe the symbols and images in your tarot cards, then slowly take in the wisdom in your reading.
To interpret your ten cards, look for how many cards you have that are similar: major arcana, suits, numbers, themes, or how they might be different, and let your intuition draw the information together.
The Hierophant, traditionally titled Le Pape, is actually neither, for this is Tarot and formal titles and meanings are merely starting points. "The Hierophant" signifies tradition, in all its forms, active and passive, positive and negative. The answer to the card's meaning, like the vision of a prophet, may be told in words, but only truly known in the heart.
Ace of Swords
When the Ace of Swords turns up, a grand yes! is yelled from the sky, a wish may come true. There may be a great realization, a manifestation, a liberation, an awakening, opening to the truth that sets you free, something miraculous.
The real kingdom of death is free of the material world and the "death" that occurs there; it is a place to shed the trappings of the material world and come to the light. Less literally, to brave your fears will lead to transformation. The end is the beginning.
Five of Swords
The number five elements in Tarot have a war like theme, usually a time for fighting a battle that can sometimes end with a painful and bitter loss. The meaning of my Five of swords comes from the inability of dealing with negative thoughts and feeling's of being defeated. This fight has either come from the hands of spiteful and hurtful intentions towards you, or by your own negative response to a situation that can be difficult to struggle with, yet this battle must be fought.
Six of Cups
The six of cups is a happy card, all about optimism and the renewal of the present through what has happened in the past. Things from one's life bring one pleasure ≠ small things, ordinary things. The past is the key; it may be anything from the past. A bridge from the past leading to the present, as exemplified by the rainbow.
Four of Cups
A choice of Stagnation. Boredom. Walking the long path of enlightenment, but being weary and caught up in the details. An offer that looks too good to be true. Waiting for good things to happen, rather than pursuing them. Being Reactive rather than Proactive. Apathy, Disenchantment. Needing a fresh approach.
Four of Swords
Rest and respite in the middle of one's troubles. As this is an airy card, it can also represent introspection and taking stock. Now is the time to take the phone off the hook and regain physical and mental strength ≠ to recover from past endeavours and gather strength for future action.
Eight of Swords
A king looks out from forced isolation; he is in serious difficulties. Although his eyes are wide open, he simply does not see. All the problems could be overcome if he could see the options open to him, but he isn't looking for the way out; he is just obsessed with the situation he finds himself in. He sees himself as trapped, and cannot at present see himself in any other light. If he just turned around he could walk away into the rest of his life, but he has to take that step. It will happen if he lets it. It's the classic case where you can only be helped if you want to be helped. All the things he needs are already there for the taking.
Six of Coins
Generosity has its own rewards, and sometimes what costs you little may be a great gain to others. These bright coins bring a smile and a welcome easing of the purse- strings, and the luxurious background and lace suggests wealth. The prettiness of the coins disguises their true worth: these are old and valueless coins - common, and worth little as either currency or collection. This gift is no great loss to its giver. The disembodied hand suggests anonymous charity, but there is the unanswered question of who gives, and why. The coins might be what is needed to pay a debt, but are they really free? Are there any strings attached? Gratitude is not always the most comfortable of emotions, implying an obligation towards one's donor. Beware the bright and shiny lure of an easy solution, for it may have a higher cost than you anticipate.
