01 Aug A Powerful Realization | Weekly Tarot Reading | 8/1 – 8/7
Hello Tarot Friends!
You never quite know who you’re going to meet, or what life has in store for you around the corner.
This week’s reading is full of juicy connections and powerful self learning. You might find yourself finally coming to grips with an old lesson, or making a steady and strong connection with a special someone.
Either way, the week ahead is charged with transformative energies, so pay close attention as we look into each of the cards in your reading this week.
Card #1: Knight Of Pentacles | A Time Of Steady Progress
Could you use some routine and consistency in your life?
The Knight of Pentacles represents steady, hardworking, patient energy. He arrives in a reading when it’s time to adopt a healthy rhythm that supports what you want to accomplish.
As you can see in the image, the Knight of Pentacles is moving at a slower pace than the other Knights of the deck. In fact, he isn’t moving at all. He is steady in both his posture and in his gaze, which is directed outward toward the fields before him.
This is the most mature Knight in the Tarot deck.
He is rooted like a mountain, and has a deep connection to nature, work, and commitment. There is no other card as reliable as the Knight of Pentacles.
These attributes are a reminder for you to put your attention on the longer term projects in your life. Whether these revolve around health goals, career aspirations, or are spiritual in nature, this is a time to set in motion habits that will pay off in the long run.
Slow and steady wins the race in this instance. So, rather than trying to make big sweeping changes right now, focus on taking small, incremental steps that will build success over time.
This card has a powerful, rhythmic quality to it. Putting your attention on your day-to-day tasks, and establishing a routine that supports and nourishes you, will produce a sense of ease this week.
Simplify. You don’t have to do everything at once.
You might meet someone who is reliable, committed, and solid in themselves. This person is someone you can trust. So if they are arriving as a potential business partner, a lover, or just a friend, you will be able to confide in and maybe even lean on them.
Likewise, it could be important for you to display your own trustworthiness this week. It may be someone has something they feel vulnerable to share with you. It’s also possible you’ll be asked to step up to the plate in a way that requires trust and perseverance.
Showing you understand the situation, and can tend to it with patience and care, might open some important doors for you.
As indicated by your next card, it’s completely possible this reliable person could be a dear friend, a powerful business partnership, or possibly a romantic relationship.
Card #2: Two Of Cups | A Deep Connection
The Two of Cups is one of the most auspicious Minor Arcana cards. It represents unity, partnership, and love.
The ancient Greek philosopher Plato taught a myth about human origins. This myth said that in the beginning, we were one whole being – round and full. But when we incarnated, we were split in two pieces, woman and man.
This was his way of explaining why we go around looking for a perfect love… the other half of ourselves. This myth also happens to be the origin of the twin flame idea.
The Two of Cups represents this kind of connection, whether internally with your own personal union, or externally with someone who really gets you. Either way, this is a bond to cherish.
You could meet someone this week who you resonate with in a magical way. The type of person who “speaks your language,” and makes you both excited and comfortable.
Whether this is a new romantic connection, a business partner, or a soulful friend… well, you’ll just have to wait and see.
Carl Jung, the father of analytic psychology, had a similar belief to Plato’s. He believed that within every person’s psyche there is either an archetypal man or woman. This powerful inner guide can lead you deeply into the riches of your true self.
Often, the Two of Cups is a sign that you’ll be coming into contact with this inner part of yourself. This magical connection could happen in a dream, or through a chance meeting with someone who holds characteristics of your spiritual, inner self.
Regardless, connecting to this part of yourself could leave you falling in love with life all over again. As the week progresses, prepare to start feeling nourished, open, and excited about life!
Just remember not to get caught up in projecting your ideals onto someone else. If you meet a person who sweeps you off your feet, remember to stay grounded, and that the divine beauty you might experience is, in fact, a reflection of something hidden within you.
In whatever way the Two of Cups manifests for you this week, your next card is letting you know it will be an important turning point. It could test you to see how much you have grown. It could also bring you a potent opportunity to release the past and step into the future.
Card #3: Judgement | Follow Your Sacred Calling
Are you ready for a time of renewal?
The Judgement card is the second to last Major Arcana card, coming right before The World card. It is considered a “threshold guardian.”
A threshold guardian is what shows up in your life before the end of a cycle, and represents the beginning of something fresh and new. In this case, Judgement heralds a time of evaluation.
Judgement symbolizes reflection, rebirth, and your inner calling. However, life wants to ensure that you have grown and learned from your past before it blesses you with revelation and clarity.
This is a good time to pause and reflect.
Take note of what arrives in your world this week. Are you reacting in a different way than you have in the past? Or is it the same stuff and the same reactions?
The Judgement card can be seen as a great blessing. Even if you feel like nothing has changed, the mere arrival of this card is a sign you are making progress.
You might experience a sudden realization, or even be graced with a miraculous event that changes everything for you.
In particular, the Judgement card can be about your higher purpose. You may feel the call to align with something that feels like destiny, and start to reorient your life in that direction.
This is no small task, which is why there is a threshold guardian between you and this deep, soulful calling. You’ll need patience, and a willingness to continue to grow and learn.
But there really is no rush. Everything you need to learn is right in front of you, and the access to it is found in your willingness to listen, love yourself, and act from a place of kindness.
Find Your Rhythm
Your first card, the Knight of Pentacles, is a clear sign that it’s important for you to find a healthy routine. Rather than searching for immediate gratification, tend to the crops in your life. If you’re responsible now, you’ll be grateful you were in the months and years to come.
The more you are rooted in a healthy rhythm, the easier it will be to receive the nourishing and powerful energies your second card is indicating. The Two of Cups could be a sign you’ll meet someone who is a true friend… or more.
It could also represent a deep internal balancing, in which you will feel at peace with yourself, and in love with the world.
Either way, you are being given an opportunity to move beyond old challenges, and step forward into a new way of living. The Judgment card may be a sign of a deep inner calling… what we sometimes call destiny.
It may also be that you have finished up a lesson, and things will be getting much easier in the near future.
All together, your reading this week is auspicious, soulful, and telling of the growth you’ve been manifesting in your life.
You’re doing great, and all of life celebrates your accomplishments.
And in service,
P.S. What routine would you like to bring into your life in order to help you move forward? What kind of lessons keep coming up for you in life? You can leave me a comment here on our blog, and let me know!
P.P.S. If you’re having trouble connecting with the deeper parts of yourself, or you could just use some help getting unstuck, you can schedule a private reading or energy session with me here.

It’s actually very difficult in this busy life to listen news on Television, so I simply
use web for that reason, and get the most up-to-date information.
LavonnePosted at 09:47h, 10 November
It’s in point of fact a great and helpful piece of info.
I’m glad that you simply shared this useful info with us.

I do trust all of the ideas you’ve introduced in your post.
They’re very convincing and can definitely work.

Thank you Jonathan for your powerful insight. I have been guided to change what I eat to a whole foods diet and although its only been 7 days I can already feel the differences.
Jonathan LionheartPosted at 15:58h, 03 August
Beautiful Lee! what a great example of something that will build in positive results over time!
Daniel FortinPosted at 06:42h, 03 August
Here the resonance for me is that pattern of salvation of hurt women, in that I can’t save anyone. It brings me in a emotional voïd. I need to stop that.
Jonathan LionheartPosted at 15:59h, 03 August
Hi Daniel, sounds like a powerful insight to me. sending blessings
SidhantPosted at 05:27h, 03 August
I love this reading. I am working slowly towards a sustainable weight loss lifestyle and need to start preparing for an exam, which for some reason I have failed a few times. Wonder why I am not able to clear. Hoping to get lucky this time.
Jonathan LionheartPosted at 16:01h, 03 August
Hi Sidhunt, the weight loss sounds like a great long term goal. I hope your exam goes well this next time around.

Jonathan LionheartPosted at 16:02h, 03 August
Thanks for saying hi John 🙂 Sometimes taking a break is the perfect move before diving back in.
Don MillerPosted at 21:18h, 02 August
This week has me very upside down. I’ve lost everything the last few years over a bad choice of marriage to the same girl that claims to have put a spell in me and I married this 3rd gen witch 2x. I lost a 23 yr company, family, friends, etc. Everything she spoke of is happening or already has. I mean Jonothan it’s creepy accurate. Anyone who meets me or wants to know me something drastic or unpredictable issues arrive. I’ve done live Tarot’s and every single reader asked me who this dark source hanging around is, all this while the reader gets exhausted and speechless.
I mean freaky stuff you only see in movies happen to me and I’m broke, alone, older, and I don’t even have an emergency contact! Seriously I do not! I’m used to having tons of friends, family, clientele, etc to share times w. Now I sit alone and try to keep miserable paying jobs and wonder where my next meal ticket comes from.
Help if you can please and I will repay everything you need – you have my word !
Jonathan LionheartPosted at 16:07h, 03 August
Sent you an email Don.
Kimberly Ann baumgartnerPosted at 21:14h, 02 August
I want to know everything about my boyfriend when he’s not telling me and our relationship and our new future together
Jonathan LionheartPosted at 16:12h, 03 August
Hi Kimberly, I understand. Unfortunately, even if he was more communicative, your work is finding ease and peace in yourself in my opinion. But I understand the desire
devern nicola simmonsPosted at 20:47h, 02 August
hi Jonathan. thank you for yet another perfect reading. i am truly amazed at the perfection of your insight.
so on the 29 i have made contact with someone who from first contact made an impression on me. in a calm spiritual peaceful yet loving way. dont know if i am discribing it correctly. any ways after corresponding for a few days he told me that he wants to invest in my country. and he want me to be his lover and business partner. Jonathan with all the scammers online i and weighing option. now here you are telling of this connection. i will continue have to take it slow to see where it goes.
promise to keep you updated.
Jonathan LionheartPosted at 16:15h, 03 August
Hi Devern, thanks for reaching out. Yes, be careful, take your time. Watch for red flags. If they are the real deal, they won’t hide anything from you. They will be willing to talk on the phone or through zoom. Stay vigilant
ALISONPosted at 19:59h, 02 August
Hi Jonathan, I’d like to bring on a connection/communication with someone I’ve met online. He started off very enthusiastically emailing me & now we’re what’s apping, there’s v little texting. Granted there’s a 5 hr time delay but we shd be able to make a time work for us to connect. Now if I was hearing this fr a friend I’d tell her to back off…. But is this what you mean by changing my behaviour,? I’m confused by his little reaction…. Perhaps this is my lesson!
Jonathan LionheartPosted at 16:24h, 03 August
Hi Alison, I’m not sure what your lesson is. That being said, if you we’re placing too many expectations, or energetically hooking into this person (as it appears you were), then when they stopped connecting it destabilized you. Not that you should have felt fine about him not connecting, but ultimately, unless there were some big expectations on him, you would have moved on ready for the next even better thing. That’s just my sense, not knowing the full story. Sending love.
BlissPosted at 14:04h, 02 August
Oh my my. I need to comment today as this is too auspicious. I eagerly read your reading this morning, Jonathan, as I always do. I then quickly checked the YouTube and a video popped up in my suggestions in which the person was describing the pain of going through the exact same thing I was going through years ago, in the period of my life where I was most suffering. That’s also the time I got into tarot and the first card I ever drew was The Devil. This card has been extremely meaningful to me since then as I know it represents my most profound inner struggles and it comes back up every now and then when I find myself flirting with the wrong path. Anyways, that video prompted something in me – a powerful desire to help that person and give them hope – and I’m at a turning point in my life where I need to decide which direction to take my career and in this moment I felt like I found my purpose. I feel it in my soul – everything just clicked like you said and it feels very much like fate to me right now. It’s kind of a huge deal. So of course I turned to my tarot to confirm that I was aligned, even though I knew, but guess which cards I drew? … The Devil reversed… The Two of Cups… And Judgment!!!! I SCREAMED! Soooo, guess I’m a woman with a purpose now!? … :’D
Jonathan LionheartPosted at 16:20h, 03 August
Hey Gabrielle, what a powerful experience! Thank you so much for sharing. Sounds like a big yes to following this clear insight 🙂 Let me know how it goes. Sending love.

Evelyn MalandaPosted at 02:35h, 02 August
Hi Jonathan , this reading is insightful. to me and I appreciate it very much . Jonathan my only concern is that I had been tought that in this life am the one who have the mission to end the several times karmic relationship and lessons and cycles and I had done everything to accomplish the mission but I don’t know if I had done that . Am looking forward to reading to be fulfill this week thanks Jonathan you are the best.
Jonathan LionheartPosted at 12:24h, 02 August
Hi Evelyn, nice to hear from you. That’s a big mission, it takes time and patience to resolve karma. Be kind to yourself. Sending love.
Maria ViallePosted at 02:34h, 02 August
I cannot believe how true your weekly tarot is. I was somewhat cynical as I tried these readings purely for amusement when I was a carer for my husband for many years as his health was worrying both family and medical people. He had vascular dementia among other physical issues. He passed last August and at times I feel I have to keep positive but often just burst into tears. I am sure you can read between the lines.
Jonathan LionheartPosted at 12:26h, 02 August
Hello Maria, thank you for reaching out. I’m sorry for your loss, and I understand the need to stay positive. And, it’s ok to break down. You might even make it a ritual for yourself, where you alot a certain amount of time a couple times a week to simply grieve. Make the container strong, maybe even have a therapist or a mentor of some kind hold the space for you. Allowing the grieving process to fully happen can be a gateway into the new. Sending love
Mary Cathrine MessanoPosted at 01:33h, 02 August
Thank you for your very encouraging words. I hope to keep my mind open this week for the many possibilities that may come my way. I would like a new routine of being able to stay home and just spend time with my grand kids. And more time with fmmamily. I find myself on a job I do not like going to. I was forced out their when my husband left. Am trying real hard to just stay focused on myself. And how I can improve myself. Not looking to blame others for where I’m at. But take full responsibility for what I do or what I think. Sincerely Mary
Jonathan LionheartPosted at 12:27h, 02 August
Hi Mary, it sounds like you are doing powerful work with yourself by taking full responsibility. Remember there is a assistance in the spiritual realms to help you as you continue to grow. Sending blessings
SharonPosted at 00:09h, 02 August

MariaPosted at 23:32h, 01 August
My lesson that I fail over and over is partner,I leave them but for the most part they leave me. I have trust issues and also control. Single parent, I fell I have to make sure it is done right to much to lose.
Jonathan LionheartPosted at 12:29h, 02 August

Jonathan LionheartPosted at 12:31h, 02 August

SuePosted at 23:02h, 01 August
I have had a romantic connection with my ex for the last five years but his partner is terminally ill, will it ever happen or not, sometimes you say yes and other times you say no this is the only dilemma in my life as you are so right about everything else . X
Jonathan LionheartPosted at 12:32h, 02 August
Hi Sue, that sounds like a complicated situation. My experience has been that our future can change daily, or even by the moment. The future is fluid. blessings
Loyce GoodwinPosted at 22:53h, 01 August
I’ve been triing to connect with the universe l don’t know if there is a certain way if so l would like to know what it is i’ve been meditating triing to get on same wave link if that is possible please let me know thank you sincerely Loyce
Jonathan LionheartPosted at 12:34h, 02 August
Hi Loyce, yes it is possible. There are many different ways and modalities for learning to tune in with the greater intelligence of the universe. Different meditation, prayer, energy practices can help in this desire of yours. Everyone is a bit different, so finding something you feel called to an in alignment with, and then sticking with it, practicing it regularly is what will help you progress. With love — J
DolliePosted at 22:32h, 01 August
Hi I have learned that you can’t make someone love you, no matter what you give them or how good you are to them, they don’t have to love you. So when you give love or anything don’t expect it in return. 2 I’ve learned never to get wrapped up in a third party relationship everyone gets hurt,but you end up loosing everything your friendship, or a friendship you never had to begin with. I’ve learned to be grateful and thankful for the things I have, my kids my house my car my job my life.. I need to take better care and love myself more I am working on this. I need I want to be come more spiritual I want to go deep within myself and heal myself I feel broken deep inside I can’t get to it to fix it.
Jonathan LionheartPosted at 12:37h, 02 August
Hi Dollie, thank you for sharing these lessons, the places you are looking to heal and grow better. Powerful lessons… I’ve found that the more we love and accept ourselves (every single part) the less we “need” our love or actions to be reciprocated. And yes, the deep places of fragmentation and hurt take time… one layer at a time, fill it with love, trust the process is happening in right timing. Blessings
