Spiritual Tarot & Guidance 25th ~ 31st January 2021
The cards for this week are: Death, The Hierophant, The Empress, Love & The Cave
Hello everyone as always I hope this weeks reading finds you safe and well!
Those of you who have read last weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance Reading and read my weekly readings on a regular basis will have noticed that YES we have two cards from last weeks reading appearing again this week, even though they were drawn from a different deck. And you will also know that this isn’t the first time that this has happened. As I don’t believe in coincidences, but in synchronicities I feel that both the spirit and angelic realms feel that there is a necessity again to repeat a part of their message.
The Death Card and The Hierophant were the two cards repeated from last weeks message.
The first card was the Death card so therefore it’s meaning remains the same: The more positive and spiritual meaning behind the Death card is one of endings and new beginnings. For change to happen something must come to an end. Change is something that is inevitable whether we choose to ignore it or try to avoid it, it will happen, it is the way we both learn and grow and it is something that we need to embrace and not fear. This I feel is the message that the spiritual and angelic realms are sending us through this card.
What I like about the image from this weeks deck as opposed to the Rider Waite image is that you can see the light of the new energy and possibility of change emerging. If you look at the image where the face of death should be you will see the light of change and re-birth and also there is the symbol of infinity, the continuity of life, between the title of the card.
The second card repeated from last weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance Reading was The Hierophant and so therefore it’s meaning also remains the same: The Hierophant is sometimes known in tarot as the spiritual teacher.
His appearance in a reading can suggest that we are sticking to tried and trusted ways of doing things because it’s the way it’s always been done or maybe we stick rigidly to our beliefs because it is the way we have been taught or guided to in the past. For example staying in a job, a career or a relationship because it’s what our parents, friends or other peer’s wanted for us or we feel that it is what is expected of us, even though we are not happy.
Our third card in this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance Reading is The Empress. One of the meanings behind The Empress in tarot is motherhood so for some of you it may mean a pregnancy, or hearing of a new birth. You can see from the image on the card that the Empress is pregnant but what she is giving birth to is a New World, New Beginnings and New Possibilities.
The first of our two oracle cards this week which are chosen as a guide to provide us with the overarching energy of each weeks reading, was the card of Love. I personally “Love” the imagery of the two hands reaching out towards each other through the heart on this card and it could not be more topical under the present circumstances in which we all find ourselves at present. Also the green colour psychically and spiritually to me signifies healing, something the whole world and our planet need greatly at the moment. It is also the colour of our fourth chakra or heart centre.
Our last card for this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance Reading was the Cave. The Cave card signifies as the card says a Sanctuary, a place of safety, somewhere to withdraw to. I feel that the message here from the spirit and angelic realms is not so much of a physical place, but a symbolic place/space to withdraw to within ourselves to find both inner peace and peace of mind.
The messages that I pass on to you from the spirit and angelic realms each week through the cards, are messages both for me and you. They are not based on a personal reading but are a spiritually based reading with messages from the spirit and angelic realms to let us know that they are aware of all that is happening in our physical world and to guide us and help us to grow, learn and develop spiritually.
It is not surprising, as I have said before, that some of the messages they give us can seem repetitive at times. One question I am guided by spirit to ask here is “how many times must a person experience the same experience before learning the lesson?”
The whole world at the moment is in some form of “Lockdown” however it does not mean, as is the case for some, that we as an individual have to go into lockdown on a personal level. It does not mean that we have to stop growing and learning as individuals. Everything we encounter good or bad along our pathway has a lesson attached to it.
The Death card reminds us that change is inevitable as much as we try to avoid it at times, it is inevitable and we must LEARN to accept it, embrace it, LEARN from it and move forward along our own individual path. You see lessons again!
The Hierophant again in support of the Death card is reminding us that we need to change the way we view situations, to not get stuck in a rut, to be open to new ways of thinking, to accept that our own beliefs and belief systems may need to change in order for us to move forward with our earthly life and grow spiritually. Yes lessons again!
We then have our final tarot card for this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance Reading The Empress. The Empress as I said earlier is the symbol of motherhood. However I feel the mothering here that the spirit and angelic realms wish to bring to our attention is one of nurturing, of loving and giving, not just to others but to ourselves. She also represents new beginnings and new possibilities.
As the image portrays and the message through the Empress is trying to tell us there is the possibility of creating a whole new world, a new life for ourselves and a new way of living. Some may say that it is not possible or that it is just wishful thinking. And for those who refuse to take the advice from spirit and the message they have given through the Death Card and Hierophant it may be and indeed seem that way. But have they learned from their own experiences or advice given? Is it again lessons that have not been learned or understood?
Our final two cards this week repeat some of the message of the past weeks and again support this weeks reading. The cards we have been given are the card of Love and Compassion and The Cave/Sanctuary.
I am aware of and feel as the spirit and angelic realms do, of the growing unease, desperation and frustration that is building across the world due to the current pandemic and other disasters whether man made or natural that are occurring worldwide.
This is why I feel we have been given in this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance Reading the Love card with its beautiful imagery of those hands reaching out through the heart surrounded with healing energy. We need to remember here an important and difficult lesson, (YES another lesson) and that is that despite all that is happening and we are experiencing, our thoughts help create our reality and that thoughts and energy are real.
Our thoughts affect our feelings and our feelings affect our reality. so what we feel in our hearts is what we send out into the world. We need to ensure that those thoughts are like the Empress, Loving and Nurturing. If we can all do this then that is the energy that we will receive in return, we will all benefit from it including mother earth herself.
To help with this we were given the Cave/Sanctuary card. I feel that this is a a message from the spirit and angelic realms once again to “go within”, and as I always say “take some time out for yourself”. Whether it be in a physical space or one you create in your own minds eye, it is a space where just like the Empress you can nurture yourself and your spirit.
A place where you can question your beliefs, your way of thinking and look at where you can make changes in your life and make plans for your future. A place where you can accept that the world is changing and that we need to accept those changes, make any necessary changes and learn and grow from them. Yes Lessons again!

I hope that this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading has helped and given you support in some way. The messages from the Spiritual & Angelic realms are always bought to you on an energy of love, compassion and understanding.
I will say it again as I always do, “take some time out for yourself, It is allowed !”
Until next time…. please take care and stay safe.
