The Eight of Swords represents negative thoughts and imposing restrictions on oneself. When the Eight of Swords appears, there will be a sense of panic about an issue or situation. Negativity, pessimism and doom and gloom will govern. You cannot possibly deal with all Eight Swords at the one time for that would be too much for any of us. You need to take one Sword (stress) at a time and attempt to sort it before moving on to the next one. Think clearly and lose the victim mentality. Solutions to your problems are there if you are prepared to seek them out.

When the Eight of Swords Reverses, the force of gravity loosens the Swords that are stuck in the ground and they fall out and tumble onto the ground. This suggests that all the stresses and worries that you have been dealing with are beginning to weaken their hold on you and they lose their strength. Suddenly, you see a way out of your situation. You can now see your situation for what it is, and for the first time in a long time, are able to take action. If you have been consumed with troubles and fear in your personal life or health-wise, then they will begin to resolve, allowing peace of mind to return.

The Knight of Swords symbolizes action-oriented ambitions and a strong drive to succeed. The Knight of Swords can suggest rushing and being under the pressure of time and deadlines. You may have taken on too much and find that you can approach none of your tasks at a normal speed. Everything seems very serious right now or maybe it is how you perceive it to be. You might be obsessing unnecessarily, thinking intensely or overly concerned about a certain issue. This Card can be a positive sign that love is heading your way and that you should be on the lookout for it to appear in your life.

The Reversed Knight of Swords gives little time or thought into preparing a battle strategy or plan of action. There is never any question as to whether the battle is justified or not, it just has to be fought. He rushes in all guns blazing, like a child playing cowboys and Indians, but quickly loses control of the situation. The Reversed Knight of Swords often suggests being out of your depth or in unfamiliar territory. This is not related to the past or the future but that you are caught up in a situation or event right now. In a relationship, you may be counting your lucky stars that you didn’t get involved.

The Ace of Swords indicates mental clarity, new ideas and judgment. A hand extends from a cloud and firmly clasps an upright Sword. The gift of the Sword in this Ace is the intellect, logic, reason, justice and communication that you possess. The Ace of Swords often represents a new attitude replacing an old one. A fresh way of looking at things can bring clarity to the situation. With this clarity you can now see both sides of a situation you are involved in. The Ace of Swords brings great communication within your relationship. This card suggests a new relationship coming to you shortly.

The Reversed Ace of Swords can herald the arrival of a challenging time in your life which will bring stress and worry. If you have been trying to deal with a problem, it can point to the fact that you are going about it in the wrong manner. You have to think clearly now and stop wasting your energy on unimportant and petty issues. The Ace of Swords Reversed often highlights a pattern of conflict in relationships. Often the conflict comes from a lack of communication between two people. Great misunderstandings can occur when our needs or feelings are not expressed.

The Two of Cups refers to something quite positive, for it is one of the most auspicious cards in the tarot for relationships, whether romantic, business or otherwise. As this card traditionally describes a romantic relationship, it also includes the idea that all good friendships are based on a natural affinity and a deep mutual understanding. Given that the Two of Cups depicts a man and a woman in a wedding ceremony, it indicates a marriage, a wedding proposal, or an engagement. Choosing the Two of Cups confirms that things seem to be going well. You should be feeling loved, cared for, and content.

When the Two of Cups Reversed shows up, it represents a balance that is lost. You may be finding that certain small details that were not problems before are coming into play, signaling that someone you have a connection with, may have resentments. The Two of Cups Reversed is trying to tell you to really be on your guard as things may not be as they seem There are actions you must take to bring back the balance. Keep your expenses under control. In a romantic relationship, you must be willing to take off the mask and let yourself be exposed and experience the good qualities of your partner without any hesitation.

The Page of Swords represents the curiosity for new ideas and finding new ways of communication. The Page was born talking. Their head is full of thoughts, ideas, plans and beliefs. The Page of Swords often highlights the need to be more assertive in your dealings with others and to stand up for yourself. Try to accept others’ points of view, without judging them harshly or condemning them. In relationships, the Page of Swords, for all their love of chat and being sociable, does expect privacy and actually enjoys silence and solitude when they get it. This card suggests you have lots of amazing ideas, but they may not be very realistic or practical.

In the Reverse, we may find that this Page of Swords still loves to talk, but the difference now is that he has nothing of any importance to say. It simply might imply shyness and feeling unsure of what to say in social situations. The Reversed Page of Swords shows the need to find something that interests you, and that provides a strong stimulating mental challenge. Deep down you desire love but you really don’t have a clue how to go about finding it. Ranting and raving will get you nowhere. More physical exercise is necessary, as the build up of mental energy can become explosive. It’s time to get out in nature and take a walk.

The Lovers card is often about a big decision at hand. The Lovers is one of the best cards you can get! It is a soulmate card and signifies an intense bond between two people. If you are single, love is coming your way! Follow your heart, your instinct is not fooling you at this time. This card says it is safe to proceed with the decision that is pulling at your heartstrings the most. The Lovers Tarot card can represent the establishment of a personal belief system and an increasing awareness of one’s values. It is about staying true to your core and being authentic to those around you.

Missed connections, power struggles, not being ready for a relationship, breakups, and personal fears about commitment could all be involved in a Reversed Lovers Card. This signals the time to make an unpleasant choice or that there are no good choices. The Lovers reversed asks you to look at where disharmony may be occurring between you and another. Instead of getting angry at this individual try to figure out how you can make it better. You cannot heal your own heart if you are busy blaming another (past or present) for your imbalance. Being miserable because of another is a choice.

The heart of the Tarot is the Major Arcana. These cards, which are often referred to as the “trump cards,” are the most powerful in the deck. They deal with major issues in life, rather than the more mundane ups and downs of everyday existence. The Minor Arcana makes up the bulk of the deck. There are fifty-six Minor Arcana cards in a standard deck, divided into four different suits of fourteen cards each:

The word “Arcana” means “secrets.” The Major Arcana cards reveal major secrets. These cards contain: Suit of Cups, Suit of Pentacles, Suit of Swords and Suit of Wands. The fourteen cards in each suit are numbered Ace through Ten, plus the Court Cards: Page (Princess), Knight (Prince), Queen, and King. Usually upright Tarot cards represent people, energies, and situations that are happening around you, impacting your life from the outside. When a Tarot card is Reversed, however, its meaning can change to one of internal influence.

When Tarot cards are shuffled or moved about, they can show up upside-down in a reading. The Reversed Tarot Card simply means its powers are weakened or blocked by something. The Reversed Arcana cards mean that you haven’t yet learned the lesson related to that card.

Within the Minor Arcana you’ll find a division of the cards into four basic suits. They are:

  • Wands: The focus of this suit is on action and personal development. Wands have a wonderful love of life and a bright sunny disposition motivating all around them. They love to be center stage and will be found as the life and soul of most parties. They love drama and have a tendency to develop huge egos. They often carry the belief that life revolves around them. When a Wand Card appears Reversed, too much energy is being expended for little reward. There may be too much action with not enough thought, and travel with no purpose.
  • Cups: This suit mainly pertains to matters of love. Cups people approach life through their feelings. The Cups deal with love, both giving and receiving it. Cups types are gentle and soft and show compassion and understanding for their fellow human being. They are easily hurt. Their imaginations can run wild on them if they dwell on worries or problems for too long. For Cups types, a broken heart takes an extraordinary long time to heal. The Cups in their Reversed state find it hard to tap into their creative channels and experience blocks of all kinds. Their interest with the spiritual and psychic world can become an obsession.
  • Swords: This suit centers on life changes and conclusions. Swords deal with how we communicate and express ourselves in the world. Their realm is the power of the spoken and written word so Sword people certainly love to talk and make excellent writers or bloggers. The Swords can be very friendly, great conversationalists at dinner parties and will generally be there for you in a crisis with their level-headed and logical manner saving the day. The Reversed Sword likes to get their own way even if it means forcing it onto others or through intimidation and bullying. They can be extremely controlling and aggressive especially in relationships
  • Pentacles: The focus of this suit is on rewards, including personal comforts and money issues. A Pentacle is a five-pointed star with a single point upright. Pentacle types love possessions and luxury and often surround themselves with beautiful things, such as clothes, jewelry, cars, houses, etc. They are hard workers who are prepared to put the effort in for as long as it takes. The Reversed Pentacle can be controlling and possessive with their partner. Money can be withheld for any perceived bad behavior. In fact they often use money as a weapon in their relationships. They can be mean with not only their money but also their emotions.

All the cards in a Tarot deck have their own unique traditional meanings and connotations, which are deciphered and interpreted as a part of the fortune-telling experience. These Cards are going to show you things in a way that is different than what you are imagining, explaining to you an aspect of your life that you probably aren’t looking at.

The cards, themselves, don’t create our future. They just help point us in the right direction. The messages of the cards allow us to reflect on a particular situation from many different vantage points, seeing angles we wouldn’t otherwise see, and helping us choose the best course of action.

Free Tarot Card Reading – History of Tarot

The word “Tarot” is said to be derived from an Italian word “Tarocchi” which depicts playing cards. And from here the history of tarot cards began.

According to ancient texts, Tarot cards shows its first presence as playing cards in northern Italy in the 1440 century. The cards were then used only for playing and were not used for divine readings.

These cards were engraved with images and titles with no numbers unlike the present set of playing cards. At times, the cards were customized and only be seen in the games of wealthy families. One such example is the tarot deck of Milan’s Visconti Family where the triumph cards were painted for members of the nobility.

There are many myths surrounding the origin of the Tarot, and theories that the cards were invented in ancient Egypt, India or China are often expressed. These ideas owe more to a sense of romance or wishful thinking than to any hard evidence, and one popular myth, expounded in Le Monde Primitif (1781) by Court de Gebelin, is that the cards were brought from India by the Gypsies (who, as their name suggests, were originally thought to have come from Egypt). The true origin of the Tarot cards remains a mystery, but what is known is that cards similar to those we have today first appeared in Italy and France in the late 14th century.

The Earliest Tarot Cards

The earliest known cards still in existence date from 1392, and of these only 17 remain. It is believed that they were painted for Charles VI of France by Jacquemin Gringonneur, but it is possible that they are actually less ancient and are Tarocchi of Venice cards from the middle of the 15th century. The earliest surviving full deck was painted in 1422 by Italian artist Bonifacio Bembo. This is known as the Visconti deck after the family name of its commissioner, the Duke of Milan.
