Figure this is a good time to start posting my monthly and weekly tarot readings for myself again. I had started doing daily pulls too but then I got out of the habit when I went on vacation, but I am going to start up again with those as well for April, but I won’t post those here or on my tumblr account.
As I have done in the past, for my Monthly reading I pull a card for each week of the month and then one for Overall what to expect from the month. Sometimes these parallel pretty well with my Yearly Tarot I pull at the beginning of the year, other times not so much. My Weekly Tarot reading is a little different as I pull three cards with what to focus on, what lesson is there in that focus, and how to overcome obstacles. So it goes a little more into detail for the week ahead and sometimes it relates pretty closely to the Monthly pulls for each week.
Anyway, my Monthly Tarot for April is as follows (done with the Linestrider Tarot):
Week One (April 3-9): Page of Cups
A time of increasing intuition and creativity is coming. This first week of April is about attuning to emotions and intuition.
Week Two (April 10-16): King of Pentacles
The second week of April focuses on wisdom and success in material and financial situations.
Week Three (April 17-23): Seven of Swords
This week there may be a need to pay attention to hidden motivations of others and also a need to be diplomatic and tactful.
Week Four (April 24-30): Seven of Cups
This last week of April is about possibilities and choices, some of which may be pure fantasy full of unreal expectations. It is a time to be mindful of what is achievable and what is just wishful thinking.
Overall: Nine of Swords
This month may be full of some anxieties and worry. There is a sense of isolation and a dark night of the soul with this month.
When I pulled for my Yearly spread I got the Knight of Cups with my Shadowscapes Tarot for what to expect from the month of April. The Nine of Swords seems a bit of the opposite to this and the other cards this month, but it may indicate I may end up over-worrying about certain things that I don’t need to worry about, like my upcoming wedding to my spirit fiancees.
For my Weekly Tarot for the first week of April I pulled the following (again with Linestrider):
What should I focus on? – King of Pentacles
It may be time to seek counsel from someone wiser. This may be a spirit ally or a person in my physical life, but it is time to focus on wisdom.
What lesson is in this? – The High Priestess
Seeking advice and counsel from another can help increase my own intuition and spirituality and also bring some things back into balance again.
Advice for overcoming obstacles? – Six of Swords
I need to make sure I focus on the future and moving away from things that are difficult rather than focusing on past hurts or failures.
Initially, the King of Pentacles threw me off when I pulled for this week because it showed up in my Monthly to be for the second week of April. However, it still makes sense overall for this week too. I feel there is a need to connect to someone this week to work on some intuition and psychic abilities type thing, just not sure exactly who that would be as of yet.
In my personal journal I try to write an End of the Week/Month/Day Reflections for each card I pull now to see how the cards actually played out or related to things that occurred. When I post up the next week I will try to give a little reflection back on this reading and when I post the next Monthly reading I will try to do the same about the reflection for the Month as well.
