At any moment, we are being presented with opportunities. With every choice we make, there are choices we didn’t make.
This card encourages us to recognise and explore all the opportunities that we are presented with. Do not allow yourself to get caught up in situations where you are feeling lost and not directed, as you are the one that is in control with your life.
Decide what it is you want to achieve and then move towards your goal. Make the choices that work towards these goals and be open to the opportunities that are presented - because sometimes they offer you an amazing means to reach your goals that you may have never even considered beforehand.

Earlier this year, I sponsored a kickstarter project by Paul Michael Kane, which resulted in me owning this wonderful deck! I already owned Paul’s Konxari deck, so looked forwards to owning this one - and I was far from disappointed. The images in the deck are glorious, and despite being a standard playing deck, demonstrate the energies that come through when using them for divination purposes in a very strong manner with his choice of imagery.
Today, I drew the Queen of Spades. This is equivalent to the Queen of Swords in a Tarot Deck. This suit is one that represents logic and focus, with the queen focusing particularly on honesty.
When I first looked at this card with my mum, we both saw different things. She saw a girl holding a baby or perhaps an oyster shell. I saw an angel reading a book. So what can they mean?
Traditionally, the Queen of Swords (or in this case Spades) will encourage the reader to focus on their own truths. She encourages commitment and focus. Coupled with our own noted symbolism, the holding of a baby can remind you that what you have is precious and that with love and nurture you can develop your dreams. The oyster shell gives a similar connotation - with the pearl being created with dedication and focus. And finally, the angel reading the book adds the element of having faith and belief in yourself.
So this week, we are being encouraged to commit to our goals and believe in ourselves.

What do you think it means?
When I teach tarot reading, I embrace the concept that symbolism means different things to each person, so the card chosen for the answer will depend on the person who is drawing it. In addition to this, there are MANY tarot decks out there, and each will bring different symbolism to the forefront for different people.
So the answer really lies within YOU.
Have a look at your six of pentacles. What stands out for you? Did you draw it the right way up, or was it reversed? If it was reversed, did it bring a particular component to the forefront for you? What do the colours of the card mean for you?
Have a look at the 6 of pentacles from the Rider-Waite deck (which serves as a good teaching deck as it has the basic symbolism that is often found as a standard across all tarot decks)
What do you see? The first thing that I notice is that there are people begging. Would asking this boy out come across as begging? Have you approached the subject before? Do you come across as needy? If not, this may serve as a reminder to be mindful of these things.
The next thing I notice is that the ‘main character’ in the card seems to be fair (scales) and giving (passing of the bread to the beggars). This boy is a kind person. He may say/do things as not to hurt you, even if he doesn’t feel them.
If *I* was to draw this card for you, with your question in mind, I would be encouraging you to ensure that you are doing things for the right reasons. You need to take things slowly and get to know each other well, as there is a chance that you’ll both be caught up in the whirlwind of it all and there will be an imbalance. There is an indication he will say yes, but if he doesn’t, he will let you down kindly.
When I first read your question, I didn’t know how I wanted to respond. My Q&A section (via Tumblr) is not intended as a reading platform, so I don’t answer those types of questions, but I am not entirely sure if you were asking me to give you the answer or not. So I stepped back and looked at the question. And your question asks if it is possible.
So in answer to your question, YES. It is possible. Tarot can give you guidance on what you need to do to help you conceive. But there are other barriers, such as how you pose the question, and whether the reader will choose to answer such a question.
If you are asking if you WILL conceive, then chances are you are not going to get an answer, and if you do, it might not make sense. If you ask for guidance in regards to improving your chances, the may come across as cryptic - for in most circumstances, this is messing with nature and nature doesn’t like to be messed with…. which may be the problem in the first place.
While you are being driven to desperation ‘trying’ to conceive, you are putting up barriers. It is a matter of discovering those barriers and learning how to work around them. Some may involve means that you do not have current access to. Perhaps it’s just not ‘your time’. Maybe you’re just ‘trying’ too hard.
Yes, you can gain guidance to help you in this are from the Tarot. But be open to how you receive it.
How many decks do you own? What’s the most recent one you bought?
I have about 10 Tarot Decks and over 30 Oracle Decks. I also have 2 Tarot and 1 Oracle decks in the post.
Eri tells her story with confidence and clarity, which is part of the reason we watched this 15-minute short doc without realizing how quickly the time had passed.
Another interesting thing that is standing out for me, after I photographed the image, I have noticed that the shading on the crow has come up looking very much like the image of a dog. I am not sure if anyone else can see it? It is not something I have ever noticed before, but is it noticeable on the card itself too (it’s not just a lighting affect). If feels as though a dog is staring right at me!
Usually this card is one that represents procrastination and hiding from the shadows, yet it seems that the shadows on this card have been illuminated for me and I can see so many things differently, so I am going to interpret it differently today.
I am noticing a moon in the background, with three swords in it. This remind me of the three of swords (which is similar, but with a heart) and this speaks of heartache. The image of the dog represents friendship and companionship. I am sensing that this week we are being encouraged to take time out to mend broken friendships and heart. It is time to let go of that which has been ailing us and to move forward in our lives.

Happy New Week!!
What’s your new week resolutions for the 28th week of the year?
With the 8 now adding elements of manifestation and balance to the balance and working together that is brought by the 2, this week is one that focuses heavily on balance.
The 8 is a number which is often associated with inner wisdom and karma, encouraging us to work on ourselves and our progress. This continues nicely on from last week, which was embracing our spiritual journey and life purpose.
This week, we are encouraged to continue on our spiritual journey, focusing on our self-belief and confidence so that we can recognise that which is positive in our lives. We are encouraged to ensure our thought processes are positive and that our actions also reflect this. Positive affirmations are seen to be very helpful.
