#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.
