Ask KnightHawk — Hoping for Joy and Peace
I would like to find out if a big change is coming and what I can do to create a joyful, peaceful living situation?
Hoping for a better future
Thank you for requesting a reading. What you have asked is basically two different questions, so I decided to do a reading with the second part (about creating a better living situation) specifically in mind while keeping in mind that the cards could also address the first part (about big changes) in the course of the reading. So, here are the cards I dealt for you:
Card 1 (Major Arcana Card for Spiritual advice) – Demons
Card 2 (Court Card for traits to develop or emphasize) – King of Coins
Card 3 (PIP card for suggested action) – Ten of Swords
A general message that I see here is that yes, a big change is coming but that it isn’t one you really want to deal with. However, it is one that will clear out some of the problems in your life, so it ultimately will be a good one. Basically, the general message that these three cards combined give is this: There is a co-dependent relationship (Demons) with someone in your life – a relationship greatly affected by their financial needs (King of Coins) – that you need to cut loose (Ten of Swords). This does not mean that the relationship itself needs to be severed, but rather it is its aspect of co-dependency that needs to be addressed.
Now, here are the specific cards in your reading and their messages:
“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.” — John Milton
What we see in this card are the internal “demons” that seduce us into taking unreasonable, self-defeating actions. So in this reading, the Demons card indicates taking a careful look at your shadow issues, which probably have to do with financial issues. Consider where in your life material concerns cause you a visceral, gut reaction, and where they cause you to act irrationally. That’s where you have deep issues to deal with and that’s where your material desires are overshadowing your higher, more spiritual interests. These are the things you need to deal with inside yourself in order to create a more peaceful environment around you.
King of Coins:
This king says that there are people who depend on your support, and of course, helping them and providing for them is vital. But it is also important to understand when it is time to cut them loose (so to speak) for their own good, like young birds being pushed out of the nest so that they will learn to fly. Perhaps it’s time for you to do this with someone.
In short, this card advises you to be supportive, but not overly so.
Ten of Swords:
This card asks if you are over-thinking things and second guessing your decisions as you consider your current situation. This card says that you’ll never get anywhere that way. Instead, make a well-reasoned assessment, state your position clearly, and then act upon it. This doesn’t mean acting aggressively though; it means being both assertive and clear. You’ll find that this will create a new beginning in your home life.
By the way, this card also indicates the point when our over-extended logic has become so exhausted that we are finally open to hearing a message from a higher source. Or, as the saying goes, we find the wisdom to “let go and let God.”
To help you in this situation, I would like to leave you with the following affirmations, which are adapted from my book, Tarot Affirmations. Feel free, of course, to pick and choose among them and to adjust them to suit yourself.
The first one is based on the Demons card:
I acknowledge my inner demons, and I confront them and defeat them.
(You may want to specify what inner demons you are struggling with in order to personalize this affirmation for yourself.)
Next is an affirmation based on the King of Coins:
I have the skills I need to create an abundant life.
The last one works with the Ten of Swords:
I am able to experience life without over-analyzing it.
