Time To Clear The Air | Weekly Tarot Reading | 9/12 – 9/18

Hello Tarot Family, 

This is Jonathan with your Weekly Tarot Reading!

And boy, this week could be a bit of a rollercoaster. One minute you might be unstoppable, storming the world and vanquishing your enemies…

Then the next, you might feel stuck and hopeless. 

But not to worry, there is some powerful romantic and creative energy that will take you through to the other side. 

This is an important reading to pay attention to, as there could be an old pattern coming up that you can finally integrate and release. 

And once you succeed, you’ll get to move on to brighter pastures. 

So let’s take a look at what’s in store for your week ahead. 

Card #1: Seven Of Wands | Choosing Your Battles

The Seven of Wands represents determination, conviction, and defensiveness. You could be feeling like you’re up against the world this week. 

You might remember this card was in a reading a few weeks back. Seeing the Seven of Wands again could be a sign that the same challenge from before has decided to rear its ugly head once more. 

When this card arrives, it can feel like no matter which direction you turn there is some kind of conflict blocking your way. 

It’s possible these conflicts could be showing up in your personal relationships. You might find yourself continually defending yourself against criticism or getting in petty fights that just seem to bog you down.

It’s also possible the discord is showing up in your work setting, with frustrating coworkers or an over critical boss giving you trouble. 

Or, it could be in multiple areas at once…

For better or worse, when the way forward seems blocked and full of frustration, it can motivate you to gather up your resources and fight back. 

As you can see in the card image, the man is defending himself ferociously against six faceless attackers. It may actually be in your best interests to prepare yourself to go on the offensive at this time. 

If you feel the need to stand your ground, you’re going to want to make sure you are clear about your position, and not just fighting for fighting’s sake. 

The man in the card is not on solid ground. He is between rocks and close to the cliff’s edge. This is letting you know it’s important to pay attention to the smaller things around you. 

The man is so consumed with the sudden attack and needing to defend himself, he doesn’t realize the danger he is in. If you look closely, you can see he’s even put on two different kinds of shoes. 

So even if you find yourself caught off guard, remember to keep your eyes on the other important things going on around you that may need your attention. 

The fact that the man’s attackers are unseen could mean a number of things, but one interpretation is that you might be creating conflict where none need exist. 

It’s almost like someone who has been trolled by an internet goblin, only to then spend hours upon hours fruitlessly trying to convince the troll he or she is wrong. 

Don’t waste your time with insignificant battles. Return to what’s important. 

Considering the amount of fire energy indicated by the Seven of Wands, you might consider getting some exercise. Go for a long run, hit the gym, or take a yoga class. 

Expend some of your pent-up energy in a positive and grounding way. 

It could be that some of this unnecessary conflict may be rooted in the deep unconscious realm, as your next card indicates. 

Card #2: Two Of Swords | Returning to Compassion

Is there conflict between you and someone close to you right now? 

The Two of Swords is a sign of a stalemate, feeling stuck, and possibly denial about how you truly feel about something.  

Not unlike your previous card, you may have seen the Two of Swords in a reading not long ago. Once again, this could mean there is a particular pattern in your life that is being dredged to the surface. 

Often, the Two of Swords can be a sign of relationship challenges. It’s not always the case, but when this card arrives, it might mean you are not seeing eye to eye with someone in your inner circle. 

There could be a lot of tension between you and this other person, to the point that it feels like there is no way to come out the other side unscathed. 

This doesn’t entirely have to be the case, but the only way forward is to be very honest with yourself, as well as with the other person. 

As you can see, the woman in the card is sitting blindfolded in the dark of night. There is something she would rather not see or feel, so she keeps her heart guarded with her two swords across her chest.  

This can often indicate deeper emotional issues beyond a disagreement, or a white lie or two. Instead, it’s likely the root of the problem comes from feelings that were pushed away and left unexpressed.  

This week, you may be faced with emotions you needed to deny and push away as a child. And the only way out, as the old saying goes, is through. 

It could be helpful to ask yourself what you truly fear.

The answers you receive may not make a lot of sense to your intelligent adult mind, so speak to yourself as if you were a child. 

Bringing compassion to your situation will allow you to be emotionally honest with yourself. In the face of a critical adult mind, the deeper fears may prefer to stay hidden… which is also why it can be hard to have vulnerable conversations with a loved one. 

Considering your first card, the Seven of Wands, it could be particularly important for you to put down the wand (or battle axe, depending on how ferocious you can be), and reconnect with your sense of compassion. 

Nothing is going to move forward unless you feel emotionally safe enough to get to the core of what’s going on. 

Luckily, there is safety and compassion available to you. Your next card is all about bringing things back together with kindness and tact. 

Card #3: Knight Of Cups | Love Is The Medicine

Are you in need of some tenderness right now? 

When the Knight of Cups is drawn, it can be a sign that romance, gentleness, and time to let your softer side come to the forefront is on it’s way. 

This Knight symbolizes gracefulness, artistry, and following your heart. 

Particularly with your previous two cards, the warmth and charm of the Knight of Wands is a welcome change of pace. 

You could meet someone who warms you from inside out, sweeping you off your feet with their kindness and adoration. 

It’s also possible you could have a breakthrough with your current relationship if you’re in one. Your ruffled feathers and frustration can be put aside with a gentle reminder of just how lucky you are. 

One way or another, the Knight of Cups brings kindness into any situation. 

Each of the Knights in the Tarot deck are riding their horse in a different way. The Knight of Swords is moving at an enormous speed, while the Knight of Pentacles is standing still. The Knight of Wands is rearing back, preparing to charge. 

Meanwhile, the Knight of Cups is trotting along at a comfortable pace. He is calm and collected. This represents his ability to change directions as needed. 

He is adaptable, and can meet any situation with ease and grace. 

This makes him a fantastic mediator. He may have the keys to unlock the challenges that could be on your table this week. 

If we consider your first card, the Seven of Wands, you could feel overwhelmed and like the world is out to get you. However, if you’re willing to slow things down and get in touch with your softer side, you might find there are more friends than enemies surrounding you. 

Likewise, the Knight of Cups has already passed through the challenging valley of the Two of Cups, where you might feel confused, stuck, or at a standstill with someone. 

The Knight of Cups is a reminder to tap into your creative side and to be willing to listen to the other person, while also staying connected with your own emotions. 

There is a light at the end of the tunnel. If things feel wacky this week, it’s a great time to find your tender side, and do some activities that remind you how special life can truly be. 

Keep finding ways to nurture yourself and you’ll do just fine. 

Getting Unstuck

It’s not unusual for fiery, defensive energy as represented by the Seven of Wands to break down into the muggy, stickiness of the Two of Swords. 

Fighting with others can sometimes be a cover for stuff you’d rather not feel or confront. 

The Seven of Wands indicates there could be some tension with the people around you, and you might start to feel like it’s you against the world. 

But beneath this your second card, the Two of Swords, is a sign of emotional issues that need to be brought to the surface and handled honestly.

Luckily your final card, the Knight of Cups, is letting you know you can find your way through by choosing compassion and tenderness. You might even meet someone who embodies these qualities and can help you move forward. 

Altogether there is some initial frustration, but a warm resolution to finish. 

And, as I hope you well know… You’ve got this!

With love,

And in service, 

Jonathan Lionheart

    You are correct, I am feeling stuck and I have felt stuck for a very long time. It does have to do with my childhood! I’ve never had a stable home environment even though my grandparents tried their best with what they had. Unfortunately, I have no loved ones left. There is nobody to confront for answers or help to interpret these feelings that I’ve kept hidden deep inside all of my life.
    I realize that I have had a wall up my entire life. Every time something bad seemed to be happening, I would do something to make it all fall apart because I knew sooner or later it would anyway, so why not just get it over with.
    I live with unresolved feelings and answers to questions regarding many things and unfortunately those answers will never become available to me.

    Hi Jonathan, another blinder of a reading! I knew immediately what conflicts I’ve been up against – not just jealous females but myself as well as I was too frightened to confront them. Well I finally posted something on this online wall & don’t think I’ve heard anything back from anyone, but I’m ok with this because I confronted my fear.
    And the man who I fancied has been in a relationship for several months, which I don’t think is going to change. So it looks like I’m moving on! But I’m in a good space!
    Question for you! If your reading doesn’t have any significance on the week it’s posted, can it still apply a week or so later?
    🙏🙏🙏

    Wow you were spot on on a lot of thing. As yes their is an emotional tension between me and my significant other. We have been married 43 years today. Separated the last 6 years. We have come to talking and doing things together. But as far as talking about things in the past and rectifying them. He shuts up and retreats into his cave, I am trying to figure out if my marriage is at check mate. Or is their a way to turn this thing back around. I believe a resolution can be had. If he will come back and open me. Instead of him waiting for me to open. When I feel he has taken no responsability for any of what has transpired. Standing at a fork in the road. Not sure which way to turn. Not trying to end marriage. To much has been invested in it. SincerelyMary

    Jonathon, what a beautiful name. I wanted to drop by and answer your questions.
    I am most frustrated with one, my relationship of five years, has been like a Rollercoaster ride, that I’m finding myself wanting to get off the ride. But I don’t know how to do that. I recently was in an car accident crash. It left me rather upset and injured. The man who hit me, blamed me for the accident, and it wasn’t my fault.. I know this man was speeding, and I know everyone else is lying about it, plus the Trooper, never even got my side of the story. There i was proven guilty without even a word from my mouth. I was once told from a Trooper there is three sides to every story. Mine, the other guy, and the Trooper. But I never even got to say mine. And all the Trooper kept telling me was he was going on Vacation. Like he didn’t want to do his duty further than he did because he was going on vacation. I couldn’t get to the court house to fight it, because I couldn’t get in and out of a car at that point, because I have an fracture of my L1 vertebrae. I know the man that hit me on my passenger rear, just pushed me out of his way, onto an embankment and a Ditch. Demolished my car completely. It just seems the way of the world. And my boyfriend of five years, didn’t even defend me when he talked to the officer. My boyfriend thinks he has to be friendly to the officer, who is not there on my side. He’s out to prosecute not be friends. Then my boyfriend argued with me, and kept saying it was my fault. Never wanted to hear me. Not listen to me. Then there’s my son, that lives with my boyfriend and I. He’s been mad at me for getting into an accident, not being home, because I’ve been recovering at my sister’s where it’s handicap accessible, and I’ve been here for two months now, and during this time, my boyfriend was supposed to get things done in out mobile home we have together. And he has done nothing to prepare for me to come home. Plus, I’m out of a job now , and I have to get another car, and I have no money to do this with. I’ve been trying to find an work at home job, to help me earn some money, to get my life together and get my own place away from my boyfriend. We just don’t agree on things. We fight and argue, and a lot of times, he just runs off not to have the discussion we need to have because he refuses to do the things necessary for me to transition home. I feel under so much pressure. Then on the other side, is I have no idea what my soul’s life purpose is. I have no idea what I’m supposed to do with my life. Where am I supposed to be? Who am I supposed to be? My son thinks my life purpose is to help him. He’s 26. Thsts another story, I don’t feel like discussing right now. My son at times makes me feel like my well will run dry. He’s had a rough few years with his ex. And I get it. But there comes a time when a person needs to do what needs to be done to be accountable and responsible for one’s own self. I don’t mind helping, but to solely depend on me, is too much on me. My boyfriend has no kids. I have 3. And he doesn’t even try to mentor my son. He has nothing good to say about my son. But my boyfriend is no saint. I just feel my purpose was to save my boyfriend. To get him to stop hurting his body with a drug, to quit smoking cigarettes. I wish I could get him to stop smoking cannabis too but he won’t. But since, I feel like my time is over with him. I did what I was supposed to do, now it’s up to him to do things too for himself. I feel like what I want most to do for myself, is to have my own home. Have all my kids and grandkids for dinner, holidays and to visit like they used to do when I was single, and had my own home. I can’t have them over at my mobile home. My boyfriend has a social disorder. Doesn’t like to be around people and isn’t sociable. All the things I’m not. I should have never bought a mobile home with him. I wanted a bigger one, he wanted the size we live in. I settled. When I should have not. Now I’m suffering. Well, that’s what’s going on. I don’t know how to get a resolution to these challenges. I don’t know how to get put to get through it.
