Lots of Kings

I’ve gone through what every individual card means in this blog, (just type it into the upper left hand corner near the b symbol and it should appear) Now I am at the end of going through what clusters of cards mean… What does it mean if you have lots of kings in your reading? Again, I have to put in the caveat that the court cards are amongst the most complex of the tarot cards and need sensitive interpretation.

If you draw 2- 4 kings, for one thing there is a lot of adult male energy in your life. It can mean anything, from working in a male dominated environment, to having lots of men interested in you. It can mean being experienced in relationships, having mainly male friends, or feeling overwhelmed by men and their energy (remember, cards always need context) One woman kept drawing kings and when I said you must have a lot of men in your life, she sighed and said yes, five brothers.

The kings are the apex of their suit, so drawing lots of kings can also mean that there is something powerful going on in your life - they don’t come in the humdrum easy days… If you draw lots of kings there is something you are in the process of mastering, something you are seeking to control.

Asking the right questions

It’s interesting how you develop your own technique and then go on line and see that you are doing the exact opposite of what everyone else is doing! I always tell people when they ask questions to try and be as specific as possible, if they are too vague I always get annoying cards of ‘look to your intuition’, which doesn’t feel helpful at all!

I can’t answer a question like ‘what career should I follow’ but I can answer a question like ‘is teaching a good idea for me?’ So I’ve been encouraging people to ask ‘yes/no’ questions - specific questions, like will my relationship work out? Should I do an MBA? Is this the right job for me? Should I look for a new job right soon? Will I find love soon?

Then I read on line how some people think the tarot doesn’t like yes/no questions… I guess tarot cards respond to what the reader feels comfortable with. I like clarity, so when people ask me clear questions, I can help them find the answers.

Third Anniversary

Today is the three year anniversary of this blog. I’m very happy about that. I’ve put a lot of love and effort here, and feel really proud of it.

If this is your first time to the blog, I discuss all matters tarot here, as well as some themes that recur in my tarot readings. I started it to show people that I am serious and informed about the tarot, although the readings themselves are often full of laughter.

I use tarot to explore what is going on in your life in the here and now, and to see how where you are putting your energy today is affecting your future. I always stress that nothing in the cards is set in stone, there is always free will or random chance. But the cards do accurately reflect what is going on in your life today, and can predict from that what is likely to happen in the near future, and from that many discussions can flow…

Please explore around the site. In the beginning I wrote about what tarot means, and then about each of the 78 tarot cards, and then I explored what groupings of cards meant, and I’ll continue blogging about the readings I have the issues that come to light. Enjoy…
