Ten of Cups

Upright/Well Dignified: …and the man and his wife and their family all lived happily ever after… This is what the Ten of Cups talks about. The opportunity to live the happy end of the Disney fairy tale. Once that period of the Nine of Cups has passed and the waiting is over, the Ten comes into […]

Ten of Pentacles/Disks

Upright/Well Dignified: The Ten of Pentacles is the card that says “and they all lived happily ever after,” something that it shares with the Ten of Cups. Both cards also talk about attainment, although here, with the Ten of Pentacles, the attainment is a lot more material and, for want of a better phrase, solid. There […]

Three of Cups

Upright/Well Dignified: With the esoteric title of this card being Abundance, it’s not difficult to see this card as being one of the more pleasant cards to appear in a reading. The card is one that seems to be all about the bounty which you have either received or are about to and how that’s going […]

Nine of Cups

Upright/Well Dignified: There’s more than a few places that refer to the Nine of Cups as the “wish” card. Considering that the title given to it by some groups is “Happiness”, I don’t think that it’s difficult to spot why. The Nine of Cups most often points to a time when you’re happy with the way […]

Nine of Pentacles/Disks

Upright/Well Dignified: In spreads that are involved with financial success, the Nine of Pentacles is one example of a card that says “You’ve got what you need, so what are you gonna do with it?” This is a card about growth, whether that growth is personal growth or simply growing something like a business or career.

Six of Swords

Upright/Well dignified: When you find yourself looking at a problem from an emotionless point of view, then you have a good idea about what the Six of Swords is all about. The Six of Swords is about escape from the current situation, usually in a manner that you’re less than happy about, but often seems […]

Nine of Swords

Upright/Well Dignified: Even when upright, the Nine of Swords is a card that is hard to see as a “positive” card. It’s one of those cards that looks simple to translate because it’s one of those damned near universal experiences that we all have as people. The Nine of Swords is a card about those […]

Ten of Wands

Upright/Well Dignified: The Crowley Thoth tarot gives the Ten of Pentacles the title “Oppression” as there is a lot of fire energy that is creating extra burdens in a situation.  With each new responsibility that a person undertakes, there is an extra weight that needs to be carried, but that doesn’t mean that you need to […]

Three of Pentacles/Disks

Upright/Well Dignified: With the Three of Pentacles being pulled, you know that at least one focus of a reading is going to be in the planning stages of a project. Getting your and other people’s act together isw going to be an important aspect of whatever’s going on. It might seem trivial, but even in […]

Five of Pentacles/Disks

Upright/Well dignified: This is one of those cards that makes some people groan a little when they see it. It is, bluntly put, a card about stress and worry. More than anything it’s a card about “going without” something that you’re convinced that you need. This is usually a hint that the things that you’re […]
