Figuring out my friend - sample Tarot reading

A case study

Our questioner is concerned about his long standing friend who has given up his job, sold his house and is talking about living a simple life in a shack in the woods with his wife and kids. Our questioner feels this is not what his friend really wants, and that there is something else going on for him. The first card in the reading - the King of Coins -points to his friend lacking self belief and having limiting thoughts about himself. This has led to a lack of optimism, as indicated by the Star. The advice is another Coin (the Three), which suggests the friend really needs to knuckle down to difficult work in front of him, rather than running away. The presence of more than one Coin suggests that work, money and property need to be looked at seriously.

Next card






There is a predominance of the suit of Coins. Coins are about what we have. Readings with a lot of Coins relate to material possessions, ownership, the things we have and the things we would like to have. They may also be about our health.

There is a theme of self control and discipline with the cards of King of Coins and Three of Coins.
