The World reversed can also indicate that you are struggling to move on from a relationship that ended without warning. Perhaps a previous partner suddenly cut you off without warning or didn’t give you the time you needed to come to terms with the end of relationship. This can be incredibly difficult to deal with as you have not had an opportunity to get closure. Don’t wish your life away waiting for them to come back. You may never get closure from your previous partner so you must focus on finding another way to make your peace with what has happened. Ask the universe to help you in this and keep yourself open to opportunities for healing. You will get through it in time but it will take a big conscious effort on your part, so put your focus into that.

Money & Career
In a career context, The World reversed can indicate that you have not reached the career goals you have set for yourself. It can also signify that you are falling short of your potential. Ask yourself what is holding you back? Have you putting the effort in? Are you afraid to strive to be all you can be for fear of failure? Are you stuck in a career that does not fulfil you? Remember you are the master of your own destiny. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, mistakes are how we learn. And don’t be afraid to think outside the box or take an unconventional career path if it’s what you love to do. In a financial Tarot spread, The World Tarot card reversed can indicate that your finances have become stagnant. There are always things you can do to help yourself. Don’t try to take shortcuts or engage in risky investments or get rich quick schemes to boost your bank balance. Hard work, consistency and determination are needed to get you into a comfortable financial position.

Spirituality
In a spiritual context, The World reversed indicates that you may feel your spirit connection has become stagnant and that you are unable or have lost the will to progress. When this happens sometimes we need to try a different approach. Why not try something you’ve never tried before? Try something new and interesting to reignite your passion. Alternatively, if you have not been putting the work into your spiritual pursuits, it tells you to be honest with yourself. There are no shortcuts to your spiritual path. You have to want to follow the path and put the effort in.

The Sun Reversed Tarot Card Key Meanings:
Lack of enthusiasm, excessive enthusiasm, sadness, pessimism, unrealistic expectations, ego, conceitedness, oppression, miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion

General meaning and interpretation
In a general context, The Sun Tarot card reversed can indicate sadness, depression and pessimism. You may be finding it difficult to focus on the positive with this card in your Tarot reading. The Sun reversed does not usually mean that your situation or circumstances are all that bad but that you are feeling pessimistic and focusing on the negative which is affecting your outlook on life. It can signify a lack of enthusiasm for life, being unclear on the right path to take or being unable to see the way forward. This Major Arcana card may show that you are letting negative energy/thoughts close you off to the happiness and joy that is all around you. You have the power to change this by simply allowing yourself to be open to the positive things that are coming your way and by finding gratitude for the good things in your life. The Sun reversed can also be an indicator of being overly enthusiastic or confident to the point that it becomes a negative trait. For example, you may be being so overly confident that you are actually becoming egotistical or arrogant. Or you may be so enthusiastic about achieving your goals that you haven’t stopped to check if they are actually realistic.

Health
In a health reading, The Sun reversed can indicate that your attitude or negativity may be exasperating your health issues. If you have been ill, The Sun reversed shows that recovery is possible but you will need to be proactive in aiding your recovery and you will need to maintain a positive outlook to help boost your health. The Sun reversed can also indicate a difficult or unplanned pregnancy, miscarriage, stillbirth or abortion.

Love & Relationships
In a love context, if you are in a relationship, The Sun reversed can indicate that you are feeling left out in the cold by your partner. Some of the spark or passion may have gone out of the relationship. It can be an indication of a broken engagement or cancelled wedding. It may indicate that you are finding it difficult to see a way forward for you and your partner. It can also signify jealousy or trying to score points off each other. Try to focus on the positive things in the relationship, spend quality time together and remind yourself of why you got together in the first place. If you are single, The Sun reversed can be an indicator that you have become so egotistical that you are putting off potential partners. Trying to impress a potential partner may actually be having the opposite effect as it may come across that you are constantly bragging. Just dial it back a bit. They will respond much more favourably if you drop that ego, just be yourself!

Money & Career
In a career context, The Sun reversed can signify feeling trapped or oppressed by your career. This oppression is more than likely within your power to change. For example, you may be feeling pessimistic and drained because you are working too many hours but you haven’t asked for the time off you need to rest. The Sun Tarot card reversed can also signify success evading you! You may be missing opportunities because you lack the confidence and self-assurance to go for them. Alternately, it can indicate that you may have set unrealistic career goals or may not be taking the appropriate practical steps to achieve what you want but relying on positivity alone to get you there. It can also indicate that you work in a cut-throat environment where being egotistical or competitive may be more valued. In a financial Tarot spread, The Sun reversed can be a bad omen. Investments may take a downturn or you may experience temporary financial hardship. However, The Sun Tarot card reversed usually indicates issues that are of your own making so look at your financial worries realistically and ask yourself if there is more you could be doing to resolve them.

Spirituality
In a spiritual context, The Sun Tarot card reversed indicated that you may be struggling to embrace the joy that spirituality has to offer. You may feel that you cannot see your path ahead and have lost trust in the universe’s love for you. You don’t where it is leading you and you don’t trust that is somewhere good because negative thoughts and feelings are overwhelming you. The Sun reversed may also indicate that your ego is preventing you from connecting with your true spiritual self. You must let go of this in order to find enlightenment.

Intuition, illusion, dreams, vagueness, instability, deception, anxiety, fear, misconception, subconscious, insecurity

General meaning and interpretation
The general meaning of The Moon Tarot card in an upright position is that everything is not as it seems. It is also the Major Arcana Tarot card of intuition. The Moons tells you that something about a situation or person in your life is not what it appears to be and you need to trust what your instincts are telling you in order to see past this illusion. The Moon also indicates that you should pay attention to your dreams as your subconscious may be bringing your attention to some information you’ve missed. The Moon can also signify that you are letting your anxiety or fear overwhelm you which may be having a negative effect on your outlook and causing you to suffer from mood swings, instability or insecurity. It can also represent a woman’s menstrual cycle. The Moon can also signify dormant insecurities or repressed issues resurfacing. The Moon Tarot card can represent underhanded or dodgy deals or illegal behaviour. If it appears in this context it is a warning to clean your act up before your behaviour is exposed. If you are awaiting a decision on something, The Moon indicates that the answer will either be delayed or be so vague it will add to your confusion rather than clarify matters.

Health
In a Health context, The Moon can signify mental health issues. It can be an indicator of anxiety disorders and depression.

For women, The Moon can indicate a health issue relating to the menstrual cycle or being affected by a hormonal imbalance in some way.

Love & Relationships
If you are in a relationship, The Moon Tarot card in a love Tarot reading can indicate that you may be feeling uncertain or insecure in the relationship.

There could be a lot of arguments or old issues or insecurities coming to the surface. It can also signify deception, but don’t jump to conclusions if you see it in your Tarot reading. Stay calm and wait until the facts of the matter become clearer. If you are single, The Moon can indicate deceit around you or that you may be being conned. If you are dating, be mindful that this person’s intentions may not be as honourable as they seem or you may not have all the facts about them yet. It indicates that there is some piece of information that is yet to reveal itself.

Money & Career
With The Moon Tarot card appearing in a career context, you may be very unclear or even anxious about your career direction. There may be miscommunication between you and your colleagues or superiors in a work context which could cause problems or misunderstandings. Alternatively, someone may be holding information back from you and you may not have all the facts you need to make a decision. In terms of finance, The Moon indicates that you should be wary of undertaking investments or any big financial gambles as you may not have all the facts you need to make an informed decision. It can also indicate that someone may be purposely deceiving you to con you out of money. Don’t be overly paranoid but do trust your instincts, if it feels like it’s too good to be true it probably is!

Spirituality
The Moon in a spiritual context is a great card to get as it’s all about intuition.

Financially, if you have been confused about how to manage your finances, this may start to become clearer. However, The Moon in a reversed position can be a sign that deception is being or is about to be exposed so if your gut instincts tell you not to invest or commit money to something, listen to them and wait for the information you are missing to be revealed.

Spirituality
In a spiritual context, The Moon reversed can indicate that you are blocking, ignoring or misinterpreting the messages spirit is trying to give you.

The Star Reversed Tarot Card Key Meanings:
Hopelessness, despair, focusing on the negative, lack of faith, lack of inspiration, lack of creativity, boredom, monotony

General meaning and interpretation
The Star in a reversed position can indicate that you are feeling hopeless. Perhaps the difficult situations you have been through in the past have drained you of your lust for life and your faith in the universe’s plan for you. The Star reversed does not indicate that things are hopeless, only that you feel they are. You need to take responsibility for yourself and your attitude to life. You may want to consider seeking some professional counselling to help you heal the wounds of the past and leave them where they belong. The Star can signify that you have lost your confidence, your belief in yourself and your trust in your own abilities. This Major Arcana card can also be an indication of feeling anxious and overwhelmed. A change of attitude is needed to resolve this not necessarily a change of circumstances. Don’t allow yourself to continue to play the victim if you have long since left the situation in which you were victimised. The Star is telling you that it’s time to heal the past, draw a line under it and move forward. Seek support to do this if you need to. You can do anything you set your mind to, you just have to believe in yourself and focus on the positive. Start small and try to find one or two things to be grateful for in each day. A creative outlet might also be helpful to you if you are artistically inclined. Rediscover your creative side, it will help you heal.

Health
In a health context, The Star reversed can indicate that your health is not all that bad but any issues you have will be magnified by your anxiety and pessimism at the moment. You may be worrying about your health and blowing any symptoms way out of proportion rather than going for a simple check-up. Try to focus on the positive. If you are worried about a health issue, go and get it checked by a doctor to put your mind at ease. Energy healing may be beneficial to you at the moment to boost your health and help you to let go of any negative energy you’re holding onto.

Love & Relationships
If you are in a relationship, The Star reversed indicates that you may have lost faith in the relationship or are focusing on the negative and missing the positive aspects of your relationship. Your relationship may have lost some of its spark, you may feel that the relationship has become stagnant and monotonous and that you and your partner have disconnected on some level. The Star reversed tells you that these problems can be fixed but you have to be prepared to heal old wounds and clear out any negative energy from the relationship if you want to go forward. If you are single, The Star reversed indicates loneliness and lack of faith in the universe’s plan for you. You may be feeling like you will never meet the right person for you. You may feel that you are becoming cynical about love. You need to release your fears and let go of the negative energy you’ve been holding on to in order to move forward. Love will appear when you least expect it!

Money & Career
In a career Tarot spread, The Star reversed indicates that you may be feeling bored in your career or feel that you are stuck in a career that is going nowhere. Monotony has set in and you no longer feel the creative spark or enthusiasm you once had. You need to change your attitude and start focusing on the positive. Things are not as bad as they seem and anything you are unhappy with is within your power to change. The Star reversed can also indicate that you are not using your creativity and are letting your talents go to waste. In a financial context, if your finances have not been going well, The Star reversed tells you that any problems are within your power to change. Reassess your financial plans in light of any recent changes in your circumstances and ask yourself are these plans still working for you and will they get you what you want? If not, look at what you can do to change them to suit your current circumstances. Don’t let anxiety over money overwhelm you, it’s not all doom and gloom! Things are not as bad as you think they are.

Spirituality
The Star reversed in a spiritual context shows that you have lost faith in the universe. You may feel like you are disconnected from spirit and you may be looking upon the difficulties you have faced in the past as an indication that you are doomed. Remember, the universe loves you. Even when you are going through terribly tough times, it is simply the universe giving you an opportunity to learn and grow. Reconnect to your spiritual side and try to find something to be grateful for in each day. You will not believe the difference such a small change can make to your outlook on life.

THE TOWER

The Tower Tarot Card Key Meanings:
Chaos, destruction, sudden upheaval, trauma, unexpected change, disaster, loss, tragedy, revelations, confusion, pain, divorce, abuse, violence, bankruptcy, natural disasters

General meaning and interpretation
Whereas the Death card is usually the card people are terrified of, out of all of the cards in the deck, The Tower is the one you really need to brace yourself for. The Tower Tarot card represents chaos and destruction. It is the Major Arcana card of sudden upheaval and unexpected change. This change usually is scary, life changing and often unavoidable. A negative Tower event can be akin to a bomb going off in your life. You don’t know how you will survive but somehow you will and later you will realise that while it was a tremendously difficult thing to go through and you wouldn’t wish it on your worst enemy, it has made you into the person you are. One positive aspect of The Tower is that the destruction it brings is usually directed at something that was built on a false beliefs and foundations or unrealistic goals and dreams. Also on the bright side, the destruction The Tower brings is always followed by renewal and creation. However, The Tower with a negative aspect can represent a whole host of tragic, traumatic or life-altering events like the death of a loved one, divorce, a bad breakup, assault, rape, violent abuse, stillbirth or miscarriage, child abuse, bankruptcy, a drug overdose, a car crash or job loss to name but a few. It’s usually the kind of thing you hope will never happen to you. That said, not every Tower event denotes tragedy. If the surrounding cards are positive, The Tower can simply represent a big change, like going to live in another country. This will be a massive upheaval. It will be a scary adjustment and will change your life as you know it but ultimately the change will be a good one. Placement of The Tower is important too, in a past position in a Tarot spread it is telling you what you’ve been through. While there are some life-events that we cannot avoid, sometimes The Tower will appear in a future if you are on a path that is leading to danger to warn you to avoid it. For instance, if you tend to put yourself in dangerous situations without thinking of the consequences, The Tower may be a warning to be mindful of your safety. Or if you take big gambles with money, The Tower may be warning you that it’s time to start acting more responsibly to avert disaster. It can also warn of natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes etc.

Health
In a health context, The Tower can represent a sudden illness or an accident so be mindful of your safety and wellbeing. If coupled with pregnancy cards it can indicate a difficult pregnancy, miscarriage, abortion or stillbirth. The Tower can also indicate mental health problems, which is understandable as Tower events generally bring with them extreme emotional turmoil. While the health issues The Tower represents are by no means easy, they are usually followed by a period of renewal. If health problems you are experiencing are forcing you to make changes in your life, try to go with the flow as these changes may ultimately prove to be for your best. Try to embrace them with a positive attitude. If you engage in any kind of substance abuse, The Tower is warning you to stop immediately or you may overdose.

Love & Relationships
In a love Tarot reading, if you are in a relationship, The Tower can be a bad omen representing, break-ups, separation or divorce. It can also represent either you or your partner or both, going through a difficult or traumatic event that will push your relationship to its absolute limits. If you want your relationship to survive this Tower event, you will need to try to be there for each other and maintain open and honest communication. If your relationship survives this upheaval, The Tower tells you that the relationship will have changed significantly. This may not necessarily be a bad thing as The Tower represents destruction of false beliefs too, so the relationship may come out completely changed but with a more solid and honest foundation. However, getting to that point will be one of the most difficult things you will go through as a couple. If you are single, you may find that you suddenly have to face an uncomfortable revelation about why you are single. If ego or arrogance has been getting in the way of you forming healthy relationships, it may indicate that a chaotic or destructive event is going to break down that ego. While this will not be a pleasant experience, it will teach you humility and improve your chances of a happy, healthy relationship in the future. The Tower can also indicate violence or assault so it can be a warning to be mindful of your personal safety when getting out there and meeting new people. Don’t be overly cautious but have your wits about you and take appropriate safety precautions.

Money & Career
In a career context, The Tower may indicate a lack of job security. It can be a signifier of a redundancy or job loss. However, it may also indicate a big change in your current position which will bring you unwelcome stress and may prove difficult but could ultimately lead to a better position or more security. For instance, the company you work for could be bought over by another company which could cause you a lot of stress or uncertainty for a while but may eventually lead to a more secure job. Financially speaking, The Tower warns to you to be careful with money. In its extreme negative, The Tower can represent bankruptcy. Avoid risky investments. There may be an unexpected upheaval coming in financial terms so if you haven’t put any money aside for a rainy day, you’d better do so quickly.

Spirituality
Imagine having a home you thought was solidly built and would shelter you for the rest of your life. The Tower would be a big storm that reduces your house to rubble, destroying everything you thought was secure and showing you that the foundations were not as solid as you once believed they were. While you would still have to experience sadness, loss, grief, anger and confusion at this horrible turn of events, out of the rubble you have the chance to build a new better home with more solid foundations. The Tower in a spiritual context represents the destruction of old beliefs. This could be a personal crisis of faith or some sort of scandal or revelation which will force you to rethink your whole belief system. Remember that the destruction of The Tower brings with it renewal so you may find that this sudden change actually opens you up to a more spiritual path in the long run, one that is based on a solid foundation of truth.

The Tower Reversed Tarot Card Key Meanings:
Resisting change, averting disaster, avoiding tragedy, delaying the inevitable

General meaning and interpretation
The Tower Tarot card reversed can be a sign that you have narrowly avoided a disaster. You will need to learn from the experience in order to prevent the lesson from coming back around again. It can also signify delaying the inevitable. While we would all like to go through life without experiencing hardships, they are a necessary part of life. Without darkness how would we ever learn to appreciate the light? If you have been running from a big change because you fear the pain or heartache it will bring, this Major Arcana card in reversed position may be telling you it’s time to turn and face it. Avoiding it may seem like the easier option but if you do you’ll be running for the rest of your life. Confronting it won’t be easy but it will eventually lead you to a new beginning. If you have already experienced your Tower event, The Tower reversed warns you not to try and rebuild what you had but to seek something new and better to build in place of what was destroyed as it was destroyed for a reason. You need to let it go and focus on creating something new. It can also be a sign that you are trying to hold onto people that are no longer supporting you in the way they once did. You need to let go of them and let them go their own way, so new people can come into your life.

Health
In a Health context, The Tower reversed can indicate that you may be ignoring an illness or a warning sign of an illness, hoping it will go away. You need to face this head on to give yourself the best chance at recovery. It may also indicate that a health scare may turn out to be nothing serious, and as such, you have averted disaster. Whatever the case, burying your head in the sand will not do you any good in terms of health issues.

Love & Relationships
In a love context, if you are in a relationship, The Tower reversed can signify that while you know your relationship is as good as over, you are avoiding actually ending it for fear of the pain it will bring. You may think you can paper over the cracks but this would be like putting a band aid on a gunshot wound. You need to face facts and understand that as long as you hold onto something that is broken you are preventing yourself from moving onto something better. If your relationship has recently come through a Tower event, different but intact, The Tower reversed is telling you not to try and get the relationship back to the way it was previously. Your relationship has changed because it needed to, you can’t go back. You need to decide if this new version of your relationship is something you want. If you are single, The Tower reversed can indicate that you have avoided a disastrous relationship with someone who was possibly dangerous, abusive or violent. It can also indicate that you are delaying or completely avoiding dealing with a traumatic or painful breakup. While you may think this approach is easier than facing up to what you’ve been through, it is actually stopping you from moving on your love life. Stop and face whatever you’re running from, learn what you can from it and then draw a line under it and leave it in the past where it belongs. It hard to move forward when you’re dragging a truck load of baggage behind you so deal with it and let it go.

Money & Career
In a career context, The Tower reversed can indicate that you may be managing to hold onto your job in difficult circumstances. This can be simply a sign that you are successfully avoiding a job loss. However, if you are avoiding something you perceive as a career disaster and rather than feel relieved you find yourself unhappy or dissatisfied, consider that this outcome may not actually be the best thing for you. Sometimes being out of our comfort zones can inspire us to do amazing things we never would have attempted otherwise. Financially, The Tower reversed is the same, it can indicate that you are averting a financial disaster but it does not necessarily mean that you should. It may be worth considering allowing whatever this negative event is, to just happen so you can deal with it and move forward, rather than constantly trying to push a boulder up a big hill and always struggling. For instance, being made redundant while scary, stressful and difficult for you, may give you the time and motivation to start your own business. Or if you have been struggling to make payments on a mortgage you can no longer afford to the detriment of every other area of your life, giving the keys back to the bank and renting might actually be a tough choice that would ultimately make you happier.

Spirituality
In a spiritual context, The Tower reversed indicates that you may have realised that the old beliefs that you once held dear are now proving to be false but you are resisting letting them go. Maybe you feel that if you don’t have those beliefs, you don’t know what to believe in. Maybe you fear backlash from others who still hold those beliefs and are afraid to break with the status quo. You need to face the truth, let go of that which is not working for you in order to move forward and find your true spiritual path. This will not be easy but it will be worth it in the end.
