#TarotMonkey Special Post-Halloween Tarot Reading.

01

Halloween is over but it is still the Feast of All Souls. For this special occasion, I am presenting a pair of two-card spreads.

The first spread has Two of Wands and Six of Swords.

Halloween Reading - 2 of Wands, 6 of Swords

Two of Wands

This card indicate hopes and aspirations. We may be longing for things that are not yet within our reach. Or they may be things that are currently not possible for us.

Six of Swords

This is a card of journeys and transitions. The world is changing and we will not have a place to stay if we choose to stay where we are.

Synthesis

We may still be craving for old hopes and dreams which are already well past their time. It is time to find ourselves new goals and new destinations. There may be fear in taking that first step, but choosing inaction is no longer beneficial to us.

02

Halloween Reading - 9 of Swords, 6 of Coins

The second spread has Nine of Swords and Six of Coins.

Nine of Swords

This is a card showing our fears taunting us. And yet these fears might not be as potent as they seem.

Six of Coins

This represents nostalgia which may be an unhealthy attachment to our past. Letting go and moving on are needed to bring our lives forward.

Synthesis

Fear and anxiety are often made worse by our minds. Confronting our fears may show us how we allow ourselves to be under the control of something that has no real power. Our fears might be fueled by memory, which in turn drives our guilt. We must learn to make peace with our ghosts: the memories that are holding us back.

#TarotMonkey Special Halloween Tarot Reading.

01

For Halloween, I am presenting a pair of two-card spreads. The first spread displays Eight of Swords and Five of Coins.

Halloween Reading - 8 of Swords, 5 of Coins

Eight of Swords

Despite our efforts and even if we struggle, we are sometimes caught in a bind. There is no immediate way forward on our own.

Five of Coins

Help from the outside will present itself. Another person who might have an interest in our situation will present a solution.

Synthesis

Try as we might, we cannot always surmount challenges on our own. When we might need it the most, an offer for help might appear in front of us. But what are the intentions of these people offering help? How are we expected to return the favor?

02

The second of today’s spreads are Four of Cups and Three of Coins.

Halloween Reading - 4 of Cups, 3 of Coins

Four of Cups

Options and opportunities are given to us. However, none of these pique our interest.

Three of Coins

A thirst for approval from someone we admire, of recognition of our worth.

Synthesis

We might be receiving attention and praise from other people for what we do or accomplish. But this attention might not affect us because the opinion which matters to us will come from someone else. Our measure of how well we perform will come from a particular observer; what everyone else are saying do not matter.
