Weekly Reading April 18

Again, this is a reading I did for the weightwatcher's challenge.

How I see myself now – Two of Wands

Where would I like to see myself – King of Pentacles

How do I conquer cravings – Ace of Cups

How I see myself now – Two of Wands
How topical! The guy on this card is sat at a crossroads, but this is one with a difference. Not only can he go left and right, he can also go up and down!

Having got to where the people that matter say I should be, I personally still feel like I still have a choice, albeit a small one. I totally refuse go to up much again, but I wouldn’t mind pleading ignorance and going a couple of pounds lighter. I looked at my BMI online after a friend warned me that I was dangerously close to the edge and I found that I’m 21.6 and I can go down to 18.something! Hmmm…decisions, decisions…

Having said that, it’s probably not the right time of year to lose more, anyway. Summer approaches, and that means bank holidays, and that means eating out, and that means dinners and puddings!

So, I may be at these crossroads for some time to come yet. In the past, I’ve always done the best of my dieting in the autumn and winter. I can’t even eat summery foods because I don’t like salads!

Where would I like to see myself – King of Pentacles
Now, I’ve always loved this guy. I see him as a pillar of society. He’s serious and hardworking, even though I know the ‘All work and no play…’ can come into force here.

Would I ever be him? I doubt that very much! The sheer thought of all the hard work I’d have to put in makes me feel tired! So how would I be like him? Well, I’ve successfully lost my weight and I can (and do!) encourage others by telling them that if I can do it, then so can they. Me with a sweet tooth that can beat any child I know, and an award winning fish and chip shop across the road from me – especially now that new potatoes will soon be coming into season…chips made with those…droooooll!!

But – I must be good! As I said, I really love this guy, and to be likened to him would in my opinion be a privilege.

How do I conquer cravings – Ace of Cups
This one’s a little more difficult. At first I thought that it would be for the love of my family who think it’s fantastic that I’ve lost my weight. But how does the saying go? ‘You have to learn to love yourself first’. I’ve never taken much notice of that before, I must admit. Just an ordinary person – I couldn’t find a great deal about myself to go into raptures about! But now to a certain extent I can. I both look and feel much better and healthier. I cringe at holiday pictures taken over the last few years. I love that my clothes are a lot smaller and I want them to stay looking nice, and not have me bulging out of them. Come to think, that wasn’t really difficult at all, was it?!

I’ve enjoyed doing this reading., I was really pleased with these three cards. I must admit, I was kind of dreading what I was going to draw in case they didn’t make sense, but as always, the tarot shows me that it knows what it’s talking about – which is more than I do half the time…!!


  1. Hi there. I like your reading. I also agree about the Ace of Cups being a reminder to learn to love yourself. Cravings are a real challenge and reminding yourself just what you love about the 'new you' might be just what you need to keep them at bay. The two of wands is interesting too, a reminder that you are the one in control, which can be quite scary really, can't it. Best wishes :)
