Tarot Reading for June 1-12, 2017

By: VICTORIA WILSON on June 1, 2017

Robin Wood Tarot


Tomorrow I leave on a business trip to Salt Lake City, Utah. For those of you who don’t know, I am a seasonal employee of the Educational Testing Service, and this is the time of year I fly out to grade AP exams. I won’t have time to post regularly to my social media, so I’m taking a short break from daily readings starting now until Monday, June 12. Here is a general reading for that entire period. I’ll still be around to post sporadically.

Opportunity – THE SUN

The most prominent symbol in The Sun is a naked baby. Riding a white horse with his arms thrown wide open, he radiates joy and innocence. Unlike adults, children don’t shoulder the responsibilities of making the world turn. For many, being a kid is by definition having the freedom to play, sometimes in a world of pure make-believe. The beauty of childhood is that life doesn’t need to be taken so seriously, and the rules don’t matter so much. Children are free to be fully present in the moment and enjoy themselves without having to consider the long-term consequences.

Because this card arrives near the end of the Major Arcana, it represents one of the final processes on the path towards self-realization. The end goal of life is to see ourselves honestly and fulfill what we came here to do. The Sun represents the moment we accept ourselves for who we are and our place in the greater cosmos. For those of us who are still figuring that out, the answer often lies in the games you liked to play as a child. What brightened your day and made you happy? What would happen if you approached your adult problems as a child approaches a game?


A man and woman dance together underneath a huppah – the Jewish symbol of the home. In both The Sun and Four of Wands, there are no walls put up. We can see things transparently for what they are, without suffering any illusions. “Home” is wherever we feel comfortable being ourselves, where we don’t feel the need to pretend or hide.

The Four of Wands warns us against limiting ourselves to the confines of what is already familiar. Don’t be afraid of venturing away from home.


Sitting above the water, the King of Cups has mastered the art of feeling his emotions in a way that is aligned with his growth and well-being. On the surface he looks calm and put-together. But beneath his feet, strong ocean currents rush forward and pull back. Turbulent emotions do not spoil his sense of peace because he has learned how to reflect rather than react.

Mirroring The Sun, the King of Cups highlights a contrast between the inner and outer. Many of us search for meaning in things outside of ourselves. But the King of Cups reminds us that true happiness can only be found within when we are fully aware of our inner divinity. Because you are a child of God/dess, you are “home” wherever you go.

Weekend Tarot Reading for May 26-29, 2017


Gaian Tarot

Mercury in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces; Mars in Gemini opposite Saturn in Sagittarius


I’m heading out to the desert this the Memorial Day weekend, so this reading is for the next 3 days ahead…

Opportunity – AWAKENING

Mercury sextile Neptune brings on a dreamy state of mind. It is within this context that we are waking up to a deep inner truth that reveals just how connected we are to one another. Think of this card as one that brings us closer to the Divine Source from which we all come. Feeling the presence of God/dess as a human is challenging because the earthly plane severs us from His/Her light. From here, we are meant to find our way back to the place we came from, but that can prove challenging when we choose to see ourselves as individuals who are separate from one another. In this card we see a group of people holding hands in a circle. In the center of the circle, a man literally sees the face of God/dess in the sky. God/dess isn’t hard to find. – S/He is present in every person who crosses your path.

Warning – TEN OF AIR

This card closes out a cycle. Being an air card, this cycle has to do with how we perceive and think. In this image ten birds fly in the same direction together. They are individuals in their own right, but they all share the same destination. Everyone, no matter how different we appear to one another, is here to grow and learn. When you feel frustrated with someone, remember that person is doing his or her best with the knowledge they were given.


It becomes a lot easier to forgive when you can see yourself in the person who has violated your trust. Forgiveness isn’t something you do for the other person, it’s something that you do for yourself so that you can move on and be fruitful. Who wants to carry the burden of resentment and anger? This weekend is about releasing all of that to clear out psychic blockages that hold you trapped in a limited mindset.The Universe wants you to grow and expand.

New Moon in Gemini Relationship Tarot Spread


The New Moon in Gemini is usually a light-hearted affair, as Gemini likes to party, meet new people, and have fun. However, tomorrow’s New Moon in Gemini coincides with a rather harsh Venus in Aries squaring Pluto in Capricorn, dredging up painful emotions that we have been holding down within the bowels of our subconscious selves.

We’ve all been heartbroken by people we love. It’s easy to blame our partners when things go wrong, but Gemini reminds us that everyone we bring into our lives are mirror reflections of ourselves. It takes two people to co-create a beautiful relationship. And it takes two people to make things go awry.

Venus brings people together in love and pushes her feel good vibes out into the world. Pluto puts you face to face with your deepest ego wounds and says “deal with it.” When these two planets bring out the worst out in one another, their combined energy compels us to examine the shadow side of attraction and love.

This New Moon in Gemini is all about setting intentions to better understand the underlying dynamics of your closest relationships. Think of a relationship – past or present. Then, grab your Tarot cards and dive deep into its undercurrents with this New Moon in Gemini relationship spread.

The positions

1 & 3 – Select two Court Cards to represent you and your partner.

4 – What do you heal within your partner?

Not All Tarot Cards are Equally Important


Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot

Not all cards are equally important. It’s ok to focus more on certain cards if that is what your intuition tells you to do.

When I first started doing Tarot readings for others, I felt a lot of internal pressure to pay equal attention to all of the cards in the spread. In my mind, if I had a lot to say about one card, then I should have just as much to say about the other cards as well.

While I like the idea of being systematic and balanced in everything I do, this approach often left me feeling stuck. I struggled to come up with more things to say about cards that, for whatever reason, did not resonate with me as much.

As I grew in my reading practice, I began to realize that some cards just have more to say than others, and that’s okay.  It doesn’t affect the accuracy of the reading.

For example, I just pulled this Horoscope Spread to check-in with myself. Each card represents the energy I currently bring to twelves areas of my life, as represented by the twelve astrological houses.

The KING OF CUPS , TEN OF WANDS, and THE SUN immediately called out to me because they reference some heavy feelings that I am processing, namely by doing whatever I can to push positive energy out into the world. This has been at the forefront of my mind over the past few weeks. So, I spent some extra time with them.

The TWO OF PENTACLES and FIVE OF PENTACLES took on less importance. These cards don’t have much to say to me, probably because I am consciously not making an effort to meet new people that I could potentially partner-up with.

How do you know which cards are the most important ones to pay attention to? This is where your intuition comes in. There will be times when you read on a single area of your life and certain cards stand out to you more than others. Don’t question why that is, simply run with it and read as you feel. If you have to “force” information out of a card, that’s a sign that its time to move on.
