Nikki’s Weekly Tarot Reading: August 7-13, 2017

weekly tarot reading

The Knight of Wands and Prince of Cups

There is a balance of energy coming through this week. Fire and water. Action and meditation. Being able to move but also be present to yourself.

The two eclipses this month bring about transformative energy. They bring to the surface things we have being burying inside. The parts of you that have been unloved, the parts of you that are hard to face, will come forward to be addressed.

I know this will be intense for many of us. And I am happy to report that the cards for this week are very supportive and restorative.

These cards will help us in our shedding and growing process under the Full Moon and Eclipses.

The Knight of Wands is an active card. It is energetic and enthusiastic, very perceptive and aware. Under the influence of this card your insights will heighten. Signs will be everywhere and you will tap into them.

There are unexpected shifts in energy under this card. Blockages will be swept out of your path, allowing you to move forward in whatever direction you choose.

The Knight of Wands is strong but kind. There is a respect for all living things and an ability to see the interconnectedness of life.


This is the card of getting things done in a respectful and efficient way. And who doesn’t want that?

The Prince of Cups feels things deeply. This is a very emotional card. It is about reaching inward and feeling your emotions and listening to your dreams.

The card asks us to be clear with ourselves about what we want. It says to feel where your heart is leading you and to stay focused on that feeling.

We have been working on our dreams and goals a lot this year, and this is just another nudge for us to stay connected to our desires.

To truly be ourselves and to be happy, we need to listen to our inner voice. We must not let the toxic mixture of fear and laziness keep us from our dreams!

The Knight of Wands paired with the Prince of Cups helps us stay positive and action oriented instead of feeling stuck in our deeply emotional state.

Both the Prince of Cups and Knight of Wands are also about following signs and listening to how the universe if directing you.

Really look for those signs! The Universe is beaming with energy and life under these Eclipses and signs will be everywhere.

So use these two cards to your benefit this week! They are here to help during this intense time and will lead us in the right direction.

Mantra for the week: I am full of energy. I feel my heart connecting me towards my deepest dreams. I see the signs pointing me to my truest path.
