The Tides Are Turning | Weekly Tarot Reading | 7/18 – 7/24

Hello Tarot Family, 

You’ve got a whirlwind of a week ahead of you!

Even if things initially feel a bit challenging, or like you’re up against a brick wall that just won’t budge, it’s not going to stay that way for long. 

In fact, there are some powerful changes coming that could have you jumping for joy… that is if you can keep up with them. 

This is the kind of week where everything could change in an instant. So let’s jump right in and see what’s in store for you.

Card #1: Nine Of Wands | Time To Stay Strong

The Nine of Wands represents grit, stamina, and perseverance. When it arrives in a reading, it’s a sign you could feel a little beat up and sore while you struggle against some big life challenges. 

However, the Nine of Wands is letting you know the obstacles can be overcome, and you’re not far from the finish line. 

This week you might revisit a number of struggles that have plagued you at different times in your life. The recurrence of certain difficulties could be so intense that the path forward may appear almost impossible. 

That being said, as you can see in the card image, the man has a distinct sense of perseverance. Although he looks tired, and even weakened, by the battles he has fought…

He’s not giving up, and neither should you. 

The wands surrounding the man in the card represent the battles he has won and the importance of shielding yourself from unnecessary strife. 

This week is a time to protect what is most important to you. It’s a friendly warning to keep your boundaries clear and strong.

You’re not far from getting beyond what’s troubling you, so don’t get down on yourself or fall into hopelessness. 

Instead, gather your strength, make choices that are supportive, and find the ray of hope that is still alive within you. 

If there are people in your life who have hurt you countless times, now is not the time to give them one more chance. Don’t waste your energy on endeavors that you know will only create more trouble. 

Stay focused, and protect yourself by being extra kind to the most important person in your life: You! 

You have far more power than you think, and even if you feel down on your luck, or like the burden is too much to lift… the truth is, you are more than capable of moving through this challenging phase. 

In fact, your next card is a sign you will either be getting some much needed assistance. It could also mean that your own passionate flame will light your fire as you move through the obstacles.

Card #2: Knight Of Wands | Courageous Action

The Knight of Wands symbolizes courage, freedom, and passion. When this card arrives in your reading, you can expect to get a powerful boost of motivation. 

As you can see in the card image, the Knight of Wands sits atop a horse that is rearing back and ready to charge. His forceful energy is represented by his yellow shirt and the red flume sticking out from his helmet. 

These fiery colors symbolize what is at the core of this card’s meaning: courageous action. 

Particularly in light of your previous card, the Nine of Wands, this motivating energy will be a great help when it comes to getting through what’s currently on your plate. 

It’s possible you’ll meet someone who is brimming with this positive, heroic energy. If so, they might rub off on you and fire up your own imagination and inspiration. 

Or, you’ll tap into your own “kick butt and take names” warrior within, and charge forward with renewed zest. 

It’s interesting to note that the Knight of Wands has salamanders printed on his yellow tunic. The salamander is an aquatic lizard, which represents the combination of emotion (water) and passion (fire). 

So focusing on what inspires you emotionally in your life will help get your energy moving in the right direction. 

As with all cards, the Knight of Wands also has a shadow side, which is his impulsiveness and hot temper. 

Be sure to take a breath or two before making big decisions this week, and give yourself time to cool down if someone triggers you. 

That being said, once you feel clear about something, and you’ve taken a moment to check in with yourself, don’t hesitate to go for it. 

Your next card is a sign that things could be changing quickly, so stay grounded, and don’t be surprised if you suddenly find the ground shifting right beneath your feet.

Card #3: Eight Of Wands | A Sudden Turning Point

The Eight of Wands is a sign of sudden changes, excitement, and gaining momentum. You could be receiving good news very soon, or a decision will be made that will change the direction of your life. 

When the Eight of Wands shows up in a reading, it’s a good sign you are headed in the right direction. 

While it can symbolize sudden and exciting changes, it also tends to mean that your transition won’t be completed overnight. 

As you can see in the image, there are eight wands all lining up along the same flight path. This means you are on track and everything is going in the right direction. 

The natural environment behind the wands is a fertile valley with a wide river flowing through it. The wands are pointing down, letting you know that the work you’ve been putting in will soon produce bountiful results. 

However, even though this is the turning point, and a major one at that, you are still gaining momentum. It will take time for the changes to spread fully throughout your life. But even so, you are well on your way. 

Considering your first two cards, it’s quite clear you are on the verge of tipping over into a new and special phase in your life. In fact, the transitions that could occur may catch you by surprise. 

Stay vigilant so you don’t miss any opportunities! 

Even more so, keep on working toward your goals and keeping your hope alive. You are close to something breaking open that will allow you to fulfill fresh and exciting potentials.

New Energy Is Coming Into Your Life

Even when we are headed for a really positive change, it can still be disorienting. But this isn’t necessarily an abrupt or totally unexpected transition. 

Your first card, the Nine of Wands, is a sign you’ve been working hard for a long time. You’ve won and lost battles, and alas… you’ll have to keep going. 

Not to worry though, there is plenty of hope still alive if you’re willing to tap into it. 

And you won’t have to hold out for long. The Knight of Wands is letting you know there is help on the way. Either from a passionate, fiery individual who will help you continue on your adventure, or from your own inner hero who will jump in the driver’s seat and take the wheel. 

Keep your eyes open, because whatever catalyzes this new energy is bringing with it some rather large shifts. Your final card, the Eight of Wands is a clear sign you are headed into a time of much awaited change. 

The totality of it won’t happen overnight, but this is when the tides turn and something new can begin to take form. 

This is a very exciting time! So keep your chin up, and remember the best is yet to come. 

With love,

And in service, 

 Jonathan Lionheart

    Hi Jonathan L.,

    I am so very fascinated how you have such a great talent in inspiring and touching myself and those around you with you words of encouragement, truth, and motivation through the readings. Often, times it manifest in my life in multiplied ways and I thank you ever so greatly.
    Well, I too yes am in a very serious crossroad as many. I have been with a man and had kids all to learn he will more than likely never change nor marry me. Then, come to find out he is still involved with his “ex-wife”, hot dig bummer! So, as a result, I began an affair with a man at work who clearly does not care about me at all and I deceived myself into believing this entire time that I was his first choice or close to the only or main one for him. I am in a big cross bc I feel I’d be leaving behind both parties, so I can free myself from the trouble the least to say. I realize I too have giving so much of myself all to get very little in return.

    Thank you 😊 for your very encouraging words. The obstickles in my life at present. I feel I am not liked by certain coworkers and being used in different respects. I find myself feeling discouraged at times. Even comparing myself with others. I am looking for a glimmer of hope. As even my marriage is on the rocks. And things are looking hopeless. I can best support myself while finishing out this chapter. By trying very hard to eradicate wrong thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts instead. Sincerely Mary

    Jonathan, thank you so much. I needed to hear all of the above, the cards you pulled hit the nail on the head. I mean exactly what is going on minus the obvious names or faces etc. It brought tears to my eyes because I have been in a huge fight against my health and multiple other things. In the next week and a half things will be coming to a head and then the real work begins even though it is hard work it still will be a victory for me and I’ve had small victories so far recently but I have a big huge one coming and then I can actually start all the things that I need to do that are all positive. Thanks again my friend I appreciate you and I appreciate what you do.

    Amazingly accurate, I am moving towards a dramatic change, a giant leap of faith, I have worked so hard leading up to this and experienced the ups and downs on the way. I am staying determined and focused each step I take and believing better things are coming, that I am on the right path and to not give up because the desired outcome or at least the first major change is the right thing to do for me. It’s like you have read my mind and I feel great, it is long overdue too and I am getting through one last month long phase before breakthrough. Thank you so much.

      Hey there, I understand the frustration that comes with feeling unable to move forward. Often we have to grow into the place we are wanting to go, which means learning how to do it, learning to believe in ourselves, and taking a responsibility for the next step. You can totally do it, but yes, finding support can be immeasurably helpful. Sending love.

    Thank you Jonathan Lionheart. Your weekly guindance reports are extremely to the point and in line with my what I experience and how I feel right now. Thanks to your words I am able to understand better what is really happening around me and stay head up even despite the heavy storms around. In this particular moment I have experienced a shocking turning point in my life after 2 years of struggle with the divorce. I thought I cannot take anything else on my arms. It seems like to much to handle. Like a hopeless dead end. Your words gave me so much needed hope. I believe that all this happens for a reason and I just need to adjust to make sure that my bounderies are protected. I have followed your posts for more then 6 months and I must say that in every ‘dramatic’ moment of my life, a turning point of Tower and the Judgment, you were there absolutely right with your guidance. THANK YOU SO MUCH for what you are doing and for all guidance you bring to me with your word each day.

    Having recently published a book, I was just interviewed for it and am hopeful that the positive changes may be in relation to it. However, I also take care of my almost 91 yr old mother and we’re dealing with extremely complicated family dynamics. When one relative didn’t get what she wants, she created a brand new Pandora’s Box and so, I fear the new stress of dealing with whatever that action brings that may be ahead. Thank you. It is a good reading and I appreciate it, too. I wish the other posters peace, shelter, fortitude and good fortune. There but for the Grace of God go I. I’m sorry for your pain.

    While I have been experiencing a positive shift lately,, I’m a little concerned about the intensity of your predictions while I am dealing with a new physical problem. At 84 could this monuments change be the end of this life and the beginning of the peaceful Eternal one?

Being told i’m reading into things wrongly, not sure if it’s the way i say things, I’m trying very hard to put myself first for a change, because i have always put others before me, and now realizing, they don’t appreciate it. You have given me a lift, to be myself. Thank you
