For this week’s reading, I wanted to work with a deck from my angel card collection, and the one I decided would assist me is the Angel Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue, Radleigh Valentine, and Steve A. Roberts, which is published by Hay House.
After an invocation (calling in the energies of the angels), I’m jumping right in, taking the deck in hand, shuffling the cards, and asking Spirit and the angels for the messages pertaining to the week ahead.
The video presentation of this week’s reading is below:
If you prefer to read the text, here it is for you:
After shuffling the deck, I pulled three cards for this reading: the first for the beginning of the week; the second for the middle of the week; and the last to round out the rest of the week.
Cards for the Week
The World indicates a major triumph, victory, or success in your life. An important goal has been achieved, and all the feelings and experiences that go along with it.
The World can suggest that you’ve been given a glimpse of the big picture, and a great mystery in your life has been solved. The final piece of the puzzle has fallen into place, and with it, you’re able to see the bigger picture, because The World suggests reaching a higher level of awareness.
While this card can suggest traveling and journeys, some of them may be metaphorical. Sometimes, it’s those inner journeys that allow us to see our outer world in ways that a trip or vacation never would.
With that in mind, The World can suggest coming full circle; you’ve arrived back at the point where you started, but you have so much more awareness about things than you did before. In this sense, The World is about reaching a state of wholeness.
So, this week, find some time to enjoy what you’ve worked so hard for—and dream about possibilities for your future. For The World is all about having a vision of what’s to come.
With Knight of Fire, this is a time to consider, or possibly re-consider, the direction you want to be moving in. Are your actions in alignment with your intention? What actions do you need to take that will get you where you want to be? Are you willing to do those things?
Knight of Fire suggests that there’s change afoot, and you may be feeling a sense of restlessness and wanderlust. There may be some thoughts of travel or relocation, either for professional or personal reasons.
I see this card come up when people change residences, get a job transfer, or decide to return to university. The change most often involves some form of travel (which also happens to be an aspect of The World, so this possibility is being reinforced).
I’m not one for pinpointing geographical locations with Tarot (I would freeze up when given a blank map of the United States in school, with the instruction of filling in the states—my sense of direction is really challenged), but I do see this Knight as the possibility of traveling west (there’s a Pet Shop Boys cover of “Go West” that I sometimes hear in my head when this card shows up), as he is facing west for me.
And keeping with the whole change thing with this Knight, and the suit of Fire being about image and identity, I sometimes see him as the embodiment of these words, spoken by Gandhi: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
For the end of the week, we have 2 of Fire (another card from the suit of Fire, making this what’s known as ruling majority), and its message is to consider where you’re at in your life right now—and where you’d like to be in the future.
This is a card of planning for the future—and with that, beginning to work up a timetable that puts some action with those intentions (Fire being a suit of intention and action). Having goals with a timeline attached to them allows you to know that you’re making progress, each action bringing you one step closer to that bigger, larger success.
This timeline/timetable aspect of 2 of Fire can suggest certain elements are being brought together, each one coming onto the scene in its right and perfect time (also known as Divine Timing), and may be contingent on other things being brought into the mix.
The same can be said for people (a reference to the two men on the card) who may play a role or have a hand in the situation. The angels remind us that each person has the ability to make free will choices, which can affect and impact our plans; also, there may be things that have to happen in their own worlds that will better prepare them for the parts they will play in your world.
2 of Gabriel is the plan–the bigger picture (remember that aspect of The World?), if you will–that allows you to take those first action steps.
And 2 of Fire, for me, can mean that the path you’re on is the right path.
