Complete Book of Tarot: Assessment, reflection, re-evaluation, standing at a threshold, seeking advantage
Complete Book of Tarot: Card 1 was the Queen of Swords. This could represent an important woman in his life or a personality trait that he needs to cultivate at this time. If this card refers to a situation, it would involve a certain amount of sadness, grieving, or loss. The Queen of Swords is often called the ‘widow’ card because she is a woman who has experienced loss or privation. Interestingly, one of the traditional meanings of this card is ‘sterility.’
Tarot Triumphs: For this, lay out the cards in their numerical order, starting with the Fool, and try to see what kind of narrative is unfolding from the Magician at no. 1 to the World at no. 21. It’s possible too to try this in reverse order from no. 21 to no. 1. I suggest that you approach this in a spirit of play and enjoyment without forcing the story to take its full shape. You may also find that this exercise is worth coming back to a few times; it will probably grow easier and more enjoyable as you practice.
