Can someone please help. Having a rough time :(

Hey Everyone.

I have recently had a spiritual awakening after a long depression which I am still somewhat suffering through. I am trying to learn how to read tarot cards for some sort of guidance in my life.

I am wanting to start a completely new life and every spread I did for myself the wheel of fortune card was pulled. Its the only card that made an appearance in every single reading.

At first I thought this was a good thing but from what I am reading this could be a bad thing? All of the other cards I pulled were generally good and had to do with change and prosperity.

Also the person I love just left me for someone else. I did a one card reading on us and pulled the 2 of cups. I originally thought that was good and it looked like we may have a relationship again in the future but just found out that he is marrying this other woman in August.

If anyone who is experienced could give me any advice that would be wonderful :) I have been struggling a bit lately and feel very alone at times.

Also I felt very exhausted after doing the readings and fell asleep shortly after and slept for the whole day almost. Is this normal?? I never take naps ever so it was just really strange as I flt fine before the readings.

Thanks :)

Firstly, suchadreamer, don't take the tarot as absolute gospel proof of anything. The tarot shows you possibilities, things that might be, not what WILL be.
Secondly, it's not a good idea to read for yourself. Your self-readings will generally be either over-optimistic or over-pessimistic.

Now, to the WHEEL. I use a tarot based on pagan mythology, so the Wheel of Fortune becomes just The Wheel.
The Wheel talks about the passage of the seasons, the natural ebbs and flows of Life and the Universe. It talks about things that will happen in their own time, not when you want them - people working with the land know this instinctively - example, lambs will be born when they are due, not when is convenient for you.
Reading further into the Wheel. Your past determines your present, and your present shapes your future. It also talks about consequences - whatever you do has consequences which are your responsibility. This is the meaning of Karma !
The best advice given by the Wheel is to be sensitive to the ebb and flow of changes around you, and go with the currents. Don't try to swim against the current.
Hope this gives you some ideas . The Wheel is not a negative card but a reminder that the universe in general has tides and currents and we would be well advised not to fight against them.

I would have to agree to leave the tarot for now. I would also suggest on working towards being happy by yourself first.. Which includes exploring things you enjoy doing and making yourself do them..Also, our mindset is most important..so if we think happy things than more than likely we will be happy..So I would say incorporate things you enjoy doing and do them and you find additional individuals to hang out with in that process that like what you like.. Second, dont entertain negative thoughts.. as you get one try to replace it with a positive thought.. this takes practise but, the more you practise the better you will be at it and you will also feel much better throughout the day..

Wishing you the best.

All The Glory Belongs To God Forever!
