The Strength Reversed Tarot Card: What Does It Mean?

The Strength reversed is representing the need to stay strong in the face of adversity and conflict. This takes continual cultivation to build a stronger mindset.

Our weakness indeed hold us back every single day. If this has happened for you recently, then this reading is for you.

The Strength Reversed

Many times during our life we’ll feel challenged. We’ll feel as though the world has weakened us to our knees and we’re afraid of rising again to any new challenges that appear on the horizon.

The Strength Reversed card meaning

Such things keep us stuck and afraid of venturing further afield. We shield ourselves while others enjoy much wealth, abundance and experiences through conscious manifestations.

We’re here to say that posessing such strength is a choice. It’s all up to you, however, we can help remind you of the power that’s locked up deep down inside. That real, genuine, untapped potential of fury that the world needs to shine.

Card reading

We’ve done our psychic reading of The Strength Reversed using the Rider-Waite series. You may choose any tarot deck. Yes – their meanings are very similar.

The psychic reading of The Strength Reversed

Here we see the woman appearing weak, but internally she is strong. She has culviated strength, confidence and power through continuous improvement.

She doesn’t have to show it. Such wisdom internally is enough to see her through the tough times. On the surface, she is merely compassionate and gentle where her love and light beams throughout the universe.

As we see the red light on this card, this draws meaning to her anger, hatred and frustration. Such emotions are generally within her control and relate closely to her strength of character.

Over the many years, she has overcome her weakness. This is represented by the infinity symbol as seen above her head. She isn’t crowned but she doesn’t need to be since her fortification is evident beyond the physical realm.

Your inner power

Self help authors claim that we are more powerful than we give ourselves credit for. You know what? They are completely right! This wisdim they speak is actually true as the human mind and body was designed to go to new heights.

Let’s think about it: You may say that “I’m not strong enough to get through this…” when others have been through worst conflicts and have made it safely out the other side. Excellence is learned through such adversity. You cannot get this sense of knowledge and wisdom without having been through those hard times already.

At first though, it feels difficult. Many people want to quit, yet we all have our own inner lion. The type that has the courage to stand up in the heat of the battle. It may be small, but you need to cultivate it if you are to get through these next few months.

Greatness is yours

We love the concept of gratitude journals, but do you know what’s even better? Strength journals. These are where you write down all the things that keep you strong.

These include:

  • The financial security you have
  • The friends and family around you
  • Your mental power and personal growth
  • The knowledge that you’ve acquired
  • Your depth of character building

Are these similar to what you’d write in a gratitude journal? Yes, but The Strength Reversed commands that you rise up to the challenges ahead. You’ll need to go beyond mere “wishy washy” concepts and into a place where you find bravery, honor and pride.

Going forward

This tarot card speaks volumes about where you’re going in life. Self-improvement is critical in these stages and you can’t be too hard on your quest. Be kind to others, but most importantly – yourself. You can grow through this. We believe in you.

Tarot card representation created by Yocean Yogi

Today is nothing compared to the experiences you’ll soon have and the people you’ll manifest. Keep going!

The Seven of Swords Upright: What Does It Mean?

The Seven of Swords Upright tarot card represents doing things which aren’t socially responsible. You may have betrayed or deceived someone without actually realizing.

Sometimes we may go through life seemingly unaware of the bad things that we have instilled upon others. Fortunately, there is a way to deal with this unintended karma.

The Seven of Swords Upright

Are you doing things that aren’t in the best interests of others? Are you simply serving yourself? This is a question that might seem strikingly odd, but we’re often not aware that we’re getting away with something.

The Seven of Swords Upright card reading

We may be getting away with things which we don’t even realize. The judgement of others might be a clue or we may feel something deep inside our soul that stirs something up.

This sense of deception isn’t good for our personal growth. It may cause us to feel like we’re cheating others or simply betraying ourselves. Are we taking shortcuts to achieve what we desire? If so, this card is a reminder to stand up and pay attention.

Card Reading

The Seven of Swords Upright is a ‘No’ Tarot card. This is based on the Rider Waite decks.

We see here depicted a man who is sneaking away from the castle. He has 5 swords but has left two behind. It seems odd…a little strange…even a little sinister. That smile on his face gives it away.

He knows what he is doing might be perceived as wrong, but he’s doing it anyway. He is trying to avoid suspicion and alarm from others. It’s almost as though he expects to come back later for the other swords.

The number 7 represents luck. He believes he’s lucky for not being caught while knowing what he is doing is betrayal. Others have trusted him and while they may never discover his deception, he will always have to live with the pain of regret.

Eventually, he will have to come clean. His soul was born pure and won’t be able to cope with the dishonesty of choosing to keep secrets that others should have known about.

In a love reading, it’s very clear that the Seven of Swords Upright represents mis-trust and dishonesty. Someone dear to you (which may not be your spouse) isn’t being 100% truthful in their conscious existence.

The victim

The Seven of Swords Upright suggests that we are either the perpetrator or the victim. If we know we have a clear consciounce and go through life with honest traits, then we might be deceived right now.

Someone might be sneaking around your back. They’re doing things which on the surface seem perfectly fine, but there is an ulterior motive. If you’re not paying attention, then you may discover that not everything is as it seems right now.

Keep an eye out for this behavior. Sometimes you might even develop it yourself without realizing. Be strategic and keep an open mind that is also reserved. Someone that can articulate information effectively.

This is also a tarot card that speaks of commitment. Are you trying committed to what you are obsessed with? Or do you proscratinate and simply cheat yourself out of the opportunities of growth? Cutting corners isn’t a wise move and only those who play a long game actually thrive.

Accountability is Growth

Having accountability right now is paramount. It’s a chance to check-in with someone and ensures you’re both on the right track. You’ll be able to go deep on issues and can get stuff off your plate.

Some call this radical transparency. By being transparent, organisations of any size are able to grow as they can trust their team mates for the long term. Individuals can very much do the same.

Such accountability draws upon your intuitive state as well. When something doesn’t feel right, you’re able to speak up instead of waiting for the perfect opportunity. There are no cover-ups.

It can be tough bringing such touchy subjects to the surface. No one wants to be questioned but if their motives are clean, then there is nothing to worry about. This includes youself – have you bee operating with full transparency?

Going forward

It’s a wonderful time to be alive where conflict is at an all time low. Yet deep inside our soul, we know there are people who can’t be trusted. Sometimes we can’t even trust ourselves.

If you’re in a position of repsonsibility, then you need to ensure that you or those around you are acting with full ethics. With such high morals, we find those who we can trust for the long term.

Are you, or is someone you know, getting away with deception?

The Nine of Cups Upright: What Does It Mean?

The Nine of Cups tarot card means that we must be satisfied with our outcomes and show gratitude in the moment.

If things didn’t quite go according to plan, yet we still made solid progress, then such results are enough for now. Just look back for a moment and smile.

The Nine of Cups Upright

Sometimes we beat ourselves up for not accomplishing what we set out to do. We fall short on our goals yet completely miss what we have actually achieved. The mere fact that we started should be commended.

The Nine of Cups Upright meaning

There are many people who are too lazy to start anything at all. Then there’s us! We will actually make some solid progress towards the things which are important to us on the journey ahead.

What’s important is that we find appreciation for what we did along the way. Respect that sometimes things aren’t going to go according to plan, but we can focus on the positive.

Card meaning

The Nine of Cups upright is a ‘No’ card. In a love reading it means to find contentment and reasoning with others despite their flaws and frustrations.

Psychic reading of The Nine of Cups Upright

With the Rider-Waite cards we see this man on a wooden bench. While he looks a little happy, it is indeed just a little. Behind that smile lays some frustration as he hasn’t quite achieved what he wanted.

The structure behind him represents the rising and lowering of the sun while the 9 cups represents the moments in each day. Essentially, we must carve our time to find gratitude during these moments, even if they’re short.

His arms crossed also give us a hint. A truly happy man wouldn’t have his arms crossed, would he? This represents the dissatisfaction that we experience during stages of our own personal quest.

Again, there are times that this will happen. It’s how we respond to such experiences that ultimately determine the future direction of our lives. We always have a choice about how we feel.

The temporary state

If you do find yourself in such negative states of emotional wellbeing, then recognize that these are only temporary. You will soon move on. You can actually move on faster if you master your mind!

In this physical existence you are a conscious creator that can create a new thought at any time. You may wish to think about the things that have recently gone well. Did you meet a new friend? Read an exciting book? Manifested some money? Express this gratitude and the frustrations soon diminish.

You’re also welcome to bask in the experience of having already achieved great highs. Those who love the Law of Attraction do this regularly. The challenge is that they often don’t do the actual work or ascending as they are merely focused on the things. Despite this, you can certainly master these emotions of an abundant mindset.

Essentially, you do attract more of what you think about. Guard those thoughts closely as our minds are ultimately our temple of creation. We often think about keeping out the negative people. A wise idea that certainly is, but let’s not forget how damaging we can be to our own self too.

New beginnings

You can begin today by acknowledging just how much work you’ve actually done. The man on the Nine of Cups Upright has certainly done some work in his time. Relaxing right now is certainly permitted as is venturing out and having some fun!

Go ahead…see how far you’ve come! Even if you just have a job, the mere fact that you have a job should be commended. From here you can always ascend further.

tarot card meaning

Cherish these small things. Much of the world lives on so few dollars and yet many of them are actually happier. We’re blessed to live in the western world where opportunities are found around every single corner.

There is beauty all around us and our thoughts indeed control our destiny.

The Knight of Wands Upright: What Does It Mean?

The Knight of Wands Upright tarot represents the need for inspired action for our pursuit on the journey towards freedom. It’s time to raise our energy!

Be warned: This tarot card may surge you into action like a bolt of energy!

The Knight of Wands Upright

We often feel deflated because we’re not living up to our highest calling. We seek inspiration through movies, authors and music to help enlighten our spirit to manifest greater good in our lives.

The Knight of Wands Upright tarot meaning

Such energy is captive! When we find others who beam with so much radiance, light and love, we feel they must have something special. A warmth or glow that carries them forward through life.

Truth be told: They have simply found their passion. It’s the one thing that wakes them up in the morning and keeps them wide awake until late at night. This relentless enthusiasm that sees them complete projects time and time again.

Card meaning

The Knight of Wands upright means the harmonious adventure of relationships, both old and new. We’ve done this psychic reading using the Rider-Waite tarot card deck which is common.

Our representation of the The Knight of Wands Upright
The The Knight of Wands Upright from the Rider-Waite tarot deck.

We see the knight on his horse dressed in full armour. In his hands sits the illuminated wand which represents his firm grip on his mission which lay ahead. The horse is also galloping symbolizing the enthusiasm and spirit for the two to work in harmony for the greater good.

In the background we see the barren landscape despite the knight being fully kitted up with gear. This shows that regardless of the circumstances, we must dress for the experience that lay ahead of us.

As you’d be more than aware, things in our experience don’t always go according to our best laid plans. We wish thoughts would be easy yet they seldom are. We must strive for more as these to inheritly do.

Find your inspiration

Deep inside all of us is inspiration. It’s what will light us up and carry us through the hardest of challenges which lay ahead. Compare this to others who simply cover their eyes and walk through life, this inspiration is needed for the most heroic of individuals.

When you do find that source of inspiration then let it shine! Literally! Don’t concern yourself with the haters and critics. They can’t shine when you’re *that* illuminated and in full alignment with your higher calling in life.

We generally gravitate towards those who have such beautiful energy. They radiate with warmth and guidance. You’ll find them as the hero in movies, as the inspirational book author who triumph against great odds and the bedroom musician who became famous because of YouTube.

This energy is indeed infectious. Why? Because it speaks to us. It reminds of something hidden deep inside of us. Something that we’ve been neglecting unintentionally or on purpose for many years.

It’s time to switch on the light and find your inspiration. What is it you want to do? See the world? Write that book? Learn to finally paint? When you do find what warms you, this personal quest becomes significantly easier. The exucses are gone and only the challenges remain.

Striving forward

You’ll inheritly come across multiple challenges in this journey. It comes with the territory when striving for new lands and opportunities. Your inspiration will carry you through and prop you up on the days you get really knocked down.

During these times it’s important that you don’t lose hope or courage. Youv’e already made it past a big milestone. You’ve let go of the fear, the insecurity and the judgement. Instead of taking this quest because you had to (since your employer says you had to do this…), you’re taking it because it inspired you to ascend higher levels of understanding and personal satisfaction.

Find your inner inspiration. It’s deep down inside and ready to be unleashed!

The Hermit Upright Tarot: What Does It Mean?

The Hermit upright tarot card represents the inner guidance that we seek which often stems from being alone and without distractions. Have you been searching inside your soul lately for the answers?

The Hermit Upright Tarot

During times of our life, we do need to bring ourselves inside. It’s a warm and nurturing place where we can heal and find the answers to the next phase of our existence.

The Hermit Upright Tarot Meaning
The Hermit Upright Tarot Rider Waite

When we were children, our parents would draw us inside or give us a time out to read books. This is important for our growth and as adults, we’ve forgotten how vital this work is for our soul.

This alone time is very difficult in today’s world of massive noise and distractions. From cell phones to social media, we’re glued to information which is mostly irrelevant. Instead, we should focus on healing our soul from the inside.

Card reading

On the top of this mountain we see The Hermit. Our readings are done with the Rider Waite deck and this is a Yes tarot card which reminds us to draw ourselves inside.

The Hermit Upright Tarot Card Reading

We see the snow which represents the mastery it takes for someone to climb to such heights. This took much personal growth and accomplishments, and many others never made it.

This pathway of self-discovery has given him a state of inner awareness like never before. From this perspective, he has acquired wisdom that serves him long into the future.

The lantern he is holding represents that the pathway is only lit for a short distance. During the climb, he couldn’t see the top but only the next few feet. This was enough to provide inner encouragement, especially as he undertook this journey on his own.

Given that he’s reached the peak at nighttime, it shows that he didn’t give up until he found success. He could have turned around and gone home at any time and indeed, so many people do.

Both during the climb and at the summit, he has had time to go inwards and speak to his inner guiding light. The one that has waiting for so long for connection. That time has come.

Your inner escape

The Hermit Upright provides an invitation for all tarot card enthusiasts to escape into their inner world. One where they will be secluded and away from the distractions and responsibility of the physical world.

It’s here that many find the true essence of their calling. Where knowledge and truth come forth, and where the layers and baggage simply dissolve. If your soul has been tapping you on the shoulder, this is a chance to find the answers in the quietness of an otherwise noisy world.

From here, your vibration can finally start to increase. Your conscious understanding and acceptance of your fate is cemented through however you determine that to be. Every answer is waiting inside of you.

Some of us simply wait until it’s too late. Have you ever heard of last-minute yoga retreat bookings? These happen far too frequently once someone has absolutely lost touch with themselves.

Instead of waiting until the low times, find a space now in which to escape. Perhaps that’s just a few hours on the weekend to level the devices behind and nurture yourself. Pull out the gratitude journal or create a new vision board which helps you better understand your values and principles.

After all, you know there is something inside of you bursting to come out. It’s been asking for your attention for quite some time, and that time is now.

Next steps

Across numerous religeions, people seek to go on a pilgramage. It’s here that they better understand themselves and the world around them, and thus create a sense of resonance.

They don’t have all the answers. In fact, the trail often isn’t fully mapped out. They rely on their intuition to guide them through this journey, all the while knowing they will make it to the top alive, however long that may take.

It’s time for you to undertake your own soul-searching journey…starting today.

The Nine of Pentacles Upright: What Does It Mean?

The Nine of Pentacles upright represents the need to pursue financial independence starting today.

If you have been struggling recently then this is a reminder to change our perspective so we can discover abundance.

The Nine of Pentacles Upright

Too often in the spiritual world of meditation and yoga, we find individuals who haven’t quite mastered their money situation. They struggle with the basic concepts of working hard today.

The Nine of Pentacles Upright tarot meaning

You see; if you work hard today, the rewards will pay well into the future. This is the concept of passive income online that many people are only just waking up to in the world today.

Today we have divine opportunities at our fingertips to attain self mastery over our financial affairs. We can begin building an online business today that will pay us long into the future, but we must be open to the idea.

Card meaning

When reading the Nine of Pentacles Upright, it is a ‘Yes’ card. In a love reading it represents that everyone needs to get on the same page if they are to manifest wealth and abundance into their lives.

Psychic reading of The Nine of Pentacles Upright

When we look at this depiction, we see a lady who is very well dressed. She’s also in a beautiful garden which shows a heightened social class and status. She has clearly accumulated a lot!

She is about to enjoy what she has previously created. The house behind her symbolizes building a strong and stable base initially before enjoy such fruits of our labour.

Indeed she has had to work hard. Such abundance didn’t come easy and it’s only today that she gets to relax. Too often we want to experience such experiences now while not actually putting in the work.

If you have indeed worked hard, then you are welcome to relax and enjoy this process. Smell the roses and listen to the birds. If you haven’t, there is certainly some work to do here.

The LOA myth

The Law of Attraction (often referred to LOA) can be seen as a myth by a small group of people. Many believe in its power to attract abundance into our lives and to find ourselves accumulating great riches.

A clear problem is that many get lost in the dream. They simply imagine winning the lottery or building the business of their dreams without actuallly doing the legwork.

See – it’s easy to watch another ‘abundance’ Youtube video. It’s easy to hop into a Facebook group full of people talking about the power behind The Secret. What’s hard is doing the actual work.

Understandibly you need skills first. Such skills will help you on the journey through avoiding the pitfalls and helping you get to the finish line so much faster. By all means you should seek out those who have walked your path before, but don’t get lost in the process.

Once you learn, it’s time to take action. We’re talking massive action. The type that takes big sacrifices. This woman went through sacrifices and look at her now!

Going forward

Gardens are beautiful and indeed she’s in one beautiful garden. How does any garden start? With a seed. It must first be planted and only after many years does a fine garden take shape.

Tarot card analysis

This is much the same of life. You cannot grow unless you start planting your very own seeds.

You never know how much a garden you can grow unless you actually start. In fact, we’re built for much more than we’ll ever know. Even if you fall short on your goal, the true reward comes in the courage to start. So few will ever start.

The time is now to begin taking genuine action towards your goals. Aint no more time to waste!
