Exploring Tarot Cards: Three of Swords


There is a person standing still in a thunderstorm with tears streaming down his/her face. There are other people running frantically for cover but this person is numb to the raindrops and chaos. This is the dramatic visual for the Three of Swords Tarot card. A ‘heartbreak’ card for me when I started learning about Tarot cards.

Over the years I have realised that yes this card is about pain but, pain that brings relief. It is like getting an injection. When the nurse prepares the injection, you cry, pray, or shout in anticipation of pain. The injection is painful till the time the needle pierces your skin and then, the pain vanishes.

The injection starts the cure and you feel relieved.

Today, I look at this card as an essential way of emotional healing. You will heal only after experiencing the pain and expressing yourself.

So, the question is:

What do you need to do to heal emotionally?

Exploring Tarot Cards: The Chariot

Exploring Tarot Cards: The Chariot

The chariot card reminds me of the story of Lord Krishna in The Mahabharta.

The epic war of Mahabharta was fought between first cousins, Pandavas and Kauravas. Lord Krishna was Arjuna’s charioteer in the war.


Now, why do you think Lord Krishna became the charioteer?

Arjuna was the best warrior in the Pandavas team. However, Arjuna was also emotionally vulnerable when it came to fighting his cousins and Gurus from the Kauravas team.  Lord Krishna knew about this vulnerability and wanted to guide Arjuna in the right direction whenever Arjuna felt emotionally weak. Lord Krishna’s teachings to Arjuna on the chariot is the holy book of “Bhagwad Gita“.

The way Lord Krishna directed Arjuna to the path of victory is the essence of The Chariot tarot card. The Chariot tarot card enables you to give a new direction to your life. It encourages you to direct the horses to the path of your choice. It is not going to be easy, but with balance and wisdom you can get victory. Here is a question for you: Where do you want to go from here?

The Monkey Year

2016 is the Chinese year of the Monkey. Yes, you heard it right.

There are 12 Chinese Zodiac signs with one sign for the year. These zodiac signs are named after animals and imbibe the characteristics of the animal. For example 2015 was the year of the Horse. As 2016 is the year of the Monkey, it brings with it fun, wit, humour and naughtiness.

Interestingly, people born in the year would present the qualities of the zodiac sign  of that year. Therefore, people born in 2015 (after Feb, 2015) will have the Horse as their Chinese Zodiac sign. They would be full of vigor, speed and gracefulness.

Here is the Tarot Fortune for each Chinese Zodiac sign in 2016. Look at the Tart card for your Zodiac to know the fortune. Let your feelings about the card guide you.  If you do not know your Chinese zodiac sign, scroll below to find out.
