Weekly tarot recs are back – Round 8! ♥
I totally got this idea from Ariel Bissett! So if you haven’t seen her video, definitely go check it out.
This is a 3 card spread and you can play along one of two ways:
- Chose one of the 3 cards that speaks to you. Don’t over think it, just chose which ever one your gut is telling you to.
- View this as virtual weekly or 3 card spread! A 3 card spread can be read many ways but the most common interpretations are:
- Past, Present, Future
- Mind, Body, Spirit
- You, Me, Us
- Stop, Start, Continue
Now is the time to pick a card! I’ll read the cards from Left to Right. So feel free to skip to the card you pick or read them all!
Card 1: The Past
We just had this card last time I did this post, but I have another perfect recommendation so it worked out!
The first card is 3 of Pentacles
This is a card of teamwork, determination, and focus. The task ahead is momentous! Focus your efforts. Discipline, strategy, and hard work are need more than ever. If you grow weary, rely on those around you for support. The strength of all is needed to conquer this mountain!
I just read this and it’s a new favorite! So I’m really glad I picked the perfect card to recommend it!
A Good Girls Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson
This is YA mystery that follows Pip a high school senior who is investing her town’s famous cold case for her senior project. Everyone believes Sal Singh murdered his girlfriend before himself a few days later. But Pip doesn’t believe that’s true. With the help of Sal’s younger brother, Pip is determine to prove Sal’s innocence.
This book is intense and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I highly recommend this amazing mystery!
Card 2: The Present
The second card is 2 of Wands
This card represents determination and direction. It’s symbolizes two diverging paths. You have decisions to make. Remember – the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. It may also mean a lack of contentment, a restlessness, or detachment.
I went very literal with this recommendation and I’m not sorry about it
Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
This is a book I think everyone should read! And it is quite literally about 2 diverging paths.
This is a heartbreaking and beautiful story that follows 2 lineages throughout hundreds of years. It starts in Africa where two half sisters are led down very different paths – one becomes the second wife to slave trader while the other is sold into slavery. And each subsequent “chapter” follows a descendant of these women throughout history.
This book is beautifully written and will have you on the verge of tears more often than not. It’s a difficult but important read, now more than ever, and I can’t recommend this book enough.
Card 3: The Future
The final card is Mother of Wands
The Mother of Wands is domestic, vibrant, protective, and dominant. It’s a call to take charge and organize your life. You may be constantly going, working, and helping other. If you take on too much, you may feel chaotic and forgetful – slow down. This card symbolizes an energetic nature, vivaciousness, and strength.
I feel like the main character of this book represents this card perfectly!
Fumbled by Alexa Martin
This is the second book in the Playbook series but it can absolutely be read on it’s own. The characters from the previous book are briefly mentioned, but they don’t play an actual role in this story.
This follows Poppy who is a single mother raising her son Ace on her own. She is one of the best main characters I’ve ever read – she’s vivacious, spunky, tough, and determined. Her character made this book for me and she definitely embodies this card perfectly.
This is an adult, second chance romance between Poppy and the father of her son – TK Moore, the NFL’s top wide receiver. This book also takes a serious look at the risks of football – especially brain injuries like CTE.
That’s it for this weeks recommendations!
