Hey there, this is Jonathan Lionheart with your Weekly Tarot Reading.
I’ve set your reading up a little bit different this time around. You’ll have three options, so you can engage your own intuition and get a more precise reading. So I’m excited to find out how that resonates with you. Definitely let me know.
It’s going to be a great week ahead, the start of the new year. So if you have lingering questions or you want a private reading, you can grab one with me down below with the link, and I look forward to connecting with you again soon. Take care…
All right, welcome to your Weekly Tarot Reading, we’re doing something a little bit different this week. You’ll have three options to choose from that will give you the information you’ll need for the week ahead.
So let’s get started and call out to the grandmothers and the grandfathers of the north, the south, the east, and the west, and call out to Mother, Father, God, the denizens of light, the deep ones, the rooted ones. Help us have a clear message today and the perfect energy to support the process that each person is going through.
All right, the perfect three options for those that are viewing today. It’s option one, option two, and option three. So give yourself a moment right now and before you choose a card, take a few breaths. Allow each exhale to be a gateway into softening into the sensations of your body, melting into this present moment. If there’s a prayer or a question, bring it to your heart. And then take a few breaths and let God use your intuition…notice which of these cards is calling to you where your attention keeps going back to. And once you’ve decided, trust that you’ve chosen correctly.
There will be a timestamp down below. So once you’ve made your selection, you can choose where you want to hop to in the video.
So we’ll start with our first selection, our first card, if this is your card that you’ve chosen, this next message is for you. So asking for the perfect message for those who have chosen the first card. Your first card will be a situation. Second card is your obstacle. And third card will be the Outcome. All right.
So your first card is the Sun card, which means that you might actually be experiencing quite a bit of energy right now…vitality, clarity. There could be some real vigor in the process of growth that might be happening in your life. Certain projects could be really alive and aligned.
For some of you this could mean big expansion, big growth, both in business and in your personal life. For others, this could be a reconnection with your inner child.
The Sun card is an incredible sign of unconditional love, unconditional openness. It’s a time of feeling bright, happy, clear, and engaged with life.
So let’s take a look at what the obstacle might be for this week. So this really is a strong sign that this could start out this week, could just feel very vivacious and alive. You could feel very content.
So the Obstacle card for your week is the Ten of Swords. Now, this is a pretty powerful and potent card. And when it comes up in the Obstacle position, it’s possible that you’re having a little bit of trouble letting go of something.
So the Ten of Swords is a definitive sign that something is over, something is dead. Something has come to an end, and when it’s in the obstacle position, there might be a part of yourself that’s saying, “It’s not over. I don’t want to believe this. I don’t want to believe that this has fully come to an end.”
So what’s interesting here is that there’s a good deal of this growing energy. The Sun card has so much to do with life force, all those sunflowers. Sunflowers grow extremely fast. They keep their beautiful blooms facing the sun. This is a card of growth and expansion.
But if there’s stuck energy, in other words, something that’s come to an end, but you are still clinging to it, there can be a bit of a block here, something that’s stuck and not letting you really grow into this beautiful energy of the Sun card.
So let’s take a look at your Outcome for the week. So I love that this is the movement of your cards this week. So there’s a new energy that’s trying to make its way into your life. And while you might be either grieving, or sort of obsessing over something that’s over, ultimately, where you’re moving to, is a sense of relief, a sense of renewal.
The Ace of Cups is a juicy card of new possibilities, of feeling more deeply aligned with yourself, feeling like the possibilities are endless, particularly on an emotional level. You know, it’s definitely, often the case that the thing that we’re holding on to, that piece that we’re sort of clinging to, is also the piece that’s getting in the way of this new renewal of this new energy of this new excitement.
So I really see a pretty healthy progression this week of potentially letting go of something that you’ve been clinging to, and moving into a new and fresh place.
So let’s take a look at the Advice card. All right, so that’s quite perfect. As far as I’m concerned, the Queen of Cups is the deep, emotional nurturance that all of us need at one time or another.
So this can symbolize somebody that you might know, somebody that you could be close with that is a great person to talk to when things are a little bit complicated. This is the person that will love you unconditionally and support you no matter what. For some of you, this might actually be an element of yourself, a reminder, particularly with this Sun card and the elements of the child to really nurture yourself right now. Give yourself some slack, love yourself up, do the things that make you feel like you are taken care of, like you are cared for.
This is a great card of positive self-talk. So if your mind has been sort of riveting on something from the past, now’s the time to start inserting a new dialogue. What’s really beautiful in your life that you can talk to yourself about? What are some things that you’re excited about or grateful for?
All right, so this is your reading if you chose the first card. And I hope that’s helpful.
Let’s transition over to the next card. Thank you for those of you that chose the first card. Definitely reach out say, “Hey!” Let me know how the reading was for you. And I look forward to connecting in the future.
So for our second choice, those of you that chose the second card, we’re going to open up your reading now…
So we’re asking for clear insight, clear understanding for the week ahead for those that chose the second card…
Alright, let’s take a look. So, first card is going to be your Situation. Second card is the Obstacle, and the third card will be the Outcome. All right, let’s take a look here…
So your Situation for this week is a really lovely card. The Queen of Cups is our emotionally deep and adept female. She is deeply connected to her heart. She is very capable of nourishing those around her. She is warm. She is loving.
So this could be yourself. You might be feeling particularly emotional, both in the positive sense, as well as potentially with some more complicated feelings. For some of you, this might be somebody else that’s in your life right now, that is an emotionally supportive, loving individual.
On the negative side, sometimes it can be someone that’s a bit smothering or a little bit discombobulated.
But let’s open up the other cards, and we’ll get some more information. So your Obstacle card for the week, we’ve got our Nine of Wands. And the Nine of Wands, particularly in the Obstacle position, is a card of being defensive, protective, sort of isolating oneself.
So when I look at these two together, it makes me start to wonder if there is a little bit of, like, smothering energy around you. Or if there’s somebody that’s really interested, or giving you a lot of attention, when really what you’re requiring, or what you’re needing, or what’s coming up for you, is a need to take some space and need to kind of protect yourself.
So for some of you, this could be yourself being protective, a little bit guarded, unsure if you can trust the love or the support that’s coming in. For some of you, it’s important to understand that the Nine of Wands is also a card that’s right at the very end. It’s getting very close to completion.
So for some of you, you might be feeling a little worn out, ragged, exhausted. And the advice here is to know that you’re close, you’re really close. It’s like the last mile, it’s a little bit challenging, but you’re really getting there.
So let’s take a look at your Outcome card for the week.
Yeah, that’s great. So one of the developmental patterns that happens for people is finding a way to combine these worlds. In other words, my ability to be in my own energy, be with good boundaries, yet still be available to nourishment, to support from others. And this combination is a little bit tricky.
Luckily, what I’m seeing here, with the Star card…the Star card comes right after the Tower card. It’s a card of wisdom, and a type of openness or vulnerability that’s still rooted in life. It’s really clear that the work that you’re doing, the sacrifices that you’ve made, the challenges that have come up, are coming to a place where you’re going to feel like life is actually showing up for you.
Dreams that you’ve wanted are starting to become accessible again. Hope is emerging. So the big message here is – particularly if you’re feeling a little bit beat up, or like you’ve been at it for a really long time – the message is that you’re close. It might take a little bit longer, but you’re actually through the hardest part, and your sense of feeling supported, and even a sense of getting the things that you truly want is coming up. It’s on its way, and you might start to get some of that glimmer this week.
All right, let’s take a look at your Advice card for the week. Perfect. So the Emperor card. He is the master of structure. He’s the master of organizing things. Imagine having to run an entire empire.
So this card is advising you to step back, make sure things are in order, make sure the structures around you are serving you and working well.
So for some of you, this might look like: “Okay, I need to go and set up a budget.” For some of you it could be: “I’m needing to organize my time a little bit better.” For some of you, this is a card about taking control of your life, taking control of your destiny, being willing to be a leader, both for yourself and towards what you’re wanting, as well as a leader to those around you, to help people see the big vision and help create the structure that’s going to get you there.
All right, this is a lovely reading for you this week. And some of what’s important to highlight is to remember that there are those around you that want to support you. But finding the right balance between letting people in and keeping your boundaries so that you can keep your energy where it’s headed, because you’re not far off from a sense of completion, hope, and good movement forward. And some of what can help you with that is really just getting your place, your area organized, getting your plans put in order and stepping into that strong leadership role.
All right, for those of you that chose that second card, this is your reading. I love hearing from you. Definitely say, “Hi!” Let me know how this resonates. And I look forward to connecting with you next time.
All right, our third choice.
Those of you that chose the third card, we’re going to open up a reading for you now. So asking for a clear and potent message for those that chose the third card, looking at the week ahead.
Alright, so your first card is going to be the Situation. Second card is your Obstacle. And third card will be the Outcome. So let’s take a look here…
Your first card, the Situation is the Queen of Cups. And the Queen of Cups is a lovely card of feeling emotionally supported. For some of you, this might be an individual in your life that is very emotionally supportive, caring. She can sometimes be a bit smothering, overwhelming. But at a deep level, she is a nurturing individual.
For some of you, this might be yourself, you connecting with your emotions in a different way. It could be that you’re feeling a little bit emotional, or both positively or negatively, just to be aware that things could feel a little bit emotional in the coming days.
So let’s take a look at your Obstacle card for the week. This is such a lovely card here. This is actually one of my favorite cards. It’s not necessarily a positive card or a negative card. But it speaks to a certain time in your life. When it’s…you’ve become ready to move on from something. You’ve become sort of bored or disconnected from your usual routine. And now it’s time to head up to the mountains to look for deeper meaning.
So this card in the Obstacle position can sometimes be a sign that you’re having trouble getting the message that it’s time to make a change. So you might be avoiding a change that you know needs to happen. You might be deliberating on it, it’s possible that you’re feeling a little bit stuck in a situation.
So for some of you, it could be that you know that it’s time to move on and you’re just kind of holding back. For others, it’s totally possible that it hasn’t really struck you yet. But it might start to – you might start to realize that something’s needing to shift in your life.
Let’s take a look at your Outcome card for the week. So your Outcome card for the week is actually a card that is really good for maybe settling your nerves a little bit. So it’s possible that you’re feeling a little bit stuck or smothered, or on the other side, it’s possible that you’re getting a chance to experience a bit of nourishment that you haven’t had in your life for a while.
There’s a deeper relationship to your own emotions or somebody is treating you in a way that’s making you realize you deserve more, and the potential that there’s a stuckness around: “Should I stay? Should I go? Is there something that needs to shift or change?”
Well, luckily your third card, the Knight of Pentacles is a sign that you can take things slowly. you don’t have to rush into any big change. He – this particular Knight of Pentacles – is an individual who has learned the value of taking your time of tending to the crops around you, working on the things in front of you, not getting distracted by the future, not trying to reach out and make something happen really quick, but one foot in front of the other.
So for some of you, this can be a sign that this week, you’re going to realize that there’s a different kind of stability available to you. It’s possible that some of you are going to get re-engaged with your exercise routine, or some good self care.
For others, this might actually be an individual. This could be somebody that is a reminder that it’s okay to take things slow, a reminder of your pace. In other words, your particular frequency that you came here on the planet with is the right pace for you. You don’t have to be erratic. You don’t have to move this way and that way. You can just move at the right pace. And the next steps will be revealed in that way.
All right, let’s take a look at your Advice card for the week.
So Seven of Wands…Seven of Wands is a great Advice card, because it’s basically saying: “Don’t listen to those that are trying to tear you down. Don’t let yourself be distracted or pulled away from what’s most important to you, by people that are just being haters.” It can also be a sign that you might be getting some of that negative self-talk happening in your own head. In which case, this is a sign.
You don’t have to listen to that negativity. You are headed in a good direction. This is a card of good momentum, good movement. And anytime somebody starts to grow out of an old pattern, or starts to make choices that are better for themselves, you shift the patterns around you. And that can shake the people up around you…people that are used to a certain way that you have been or used to a certain kind of comfortability. When you start to say, “You know what, I’m going to grow, I’m going to develop,” they might go, “Well don’t do that. Don’t change.”
So this is a beautiful card, a reminder to pay attention to what you know is true. And to not get distracted by people that just want to tear you down.
Alright, so for those of you that chose the third choice, this is your reading for the week.
I hope this is helpful. Definitely say, “Hi!” I love hearing from you. And I look forward to connecting in the future. Thank you so much and take good care.
So those are our three readings for the week. And as always, I love getting a chance to connect with everybody. I look forward to connecting with you in the future.
