Are you being stalked by your Tarot cards?! What it means when you keep getting the same card in every reading

by Brigit on March 5, 2010 in Real Life Tarot

stalking tarot cardsHave you ever gone through a phase when you keep seeing the same Tarot card appearing in every reading you do, even if the reading is for someone else? It might feel like you are being ‘stalked’ by your very own Tarot cards, and in some ways, you are!

Sometimes, a particular Tarot card will repeatedly appear in your Tarot readings, regardless of whether the reading is for yourself or someone else. You might even find the same card ‘jumping’ from the Tarot deck as you shuffle. When you start seeing a Tarot card reappearing in your Tarot readings, you had better pay attention! This is your subconscious trying to send you a very important message.

Now, if you have been using the Tarot cards to understand the same question or issue in multiple readings, this may be your subconscious telling you, “I’ve told you once, I’m not telling you again!” So, take heed and allow some time to pass before you consult the cards once again.

If your ‘stalking’ Tarot card appears in multiple but unrelated readings, it’s time to take a moment to meditate on the Tarot card. Look at the imagery of the card and then allow your mind to go blank for a moment. Notice any thoughts, feelings or images that come to mind. Don’t try to analyse them straight away—just allow your mind to relax and open itself up to a deeper level of consciousness. After your meditation, write down what you experienced and then try to understand what this means for you in your everyday life.

As a secondary activity, you might like to perform a Tarot reading specifically to understand the meaning of the repeated card. You could use a simple one-card reading, along the lines of “What do I need to know about this card?” Alternatively, you may like to use the following three-card spread:

  1. What is the importance of this card in my life right now?
  2. What is preventing me from hearing the message of this card?
  3. How can I release any blockages?

By taking these steps, you will have acknowledged what it is your subconscious mind needed to tell you and will no longer be ‘stalked’ by the same card… until, of course, there is another subconscious message to be delivered!

Your website is just BEAUTIFUL! I do believe it is the best I have ever seen (I feel like I have seen thousands, certainly hundreds!)

Many Blessings.


Karen July 21, 2013 at 10:19 pm

Hi all, some interesting observations in this discussion.
Can anyone advise me what these three cards mean? I keep drawing the Wheel of Fortune, Death and The Star.
I especially keep drawing the Wheel of Fortune and I see Death as not foreboding but more in a positive sense as it means rebirth and change. I have also occasionally drawn The Tower which I also know speaks of unexpected, sudden, change and I know the Wheel of Fortune can mean a change for better or worse. I was wondering if the cards are tapping into my energies/thoughts at present as I want a change in my life right now. I am dissatisfied with many aspects of my life, finances particularly, and desire a complete change/move away from where I am now. I do have a feeling (for some reason) that something unexpected is around the corner and I am hoping it is good fortune, but I am not sure if this is just wishful thinking or not? All I know is that I want my life to change/move forward now in a positive direction. Are the cards telling me this or not? I am not sure? Any thoughts would be most appreciated.


Tennille July 5, 2010 at 3:14 am

I have been trying to get pregnat for some time and have done yes no spreads and the yes comes up at the begging of the month and no twoards the end?


Biddy_Tarot July 6, 2010 at 6:27 am

Hi Tenille,
With something like trying to fall pregnant, there is a lot of personal emotion invested in the situation which can make reading the cards for yourself very difficult. You may be starting the month full of hope and by the end of the month, losing that hope when you realise you didn’t fall pregnant. My advice is to perhaps refocus your reading to what you need to do to open yourself to the possibility of pregnancy. So, perhaps look at what you can do on a spiritual, mental, emotional and physical level to prepare yourself for pregnancy. Of course, also listen to your medical practitioner for advice.
Hang in there – I know it’s a tough journey, but trust me, it’s so important not to stress about falling pregnant. Stress only makes it worse!


Courtney August 5, 2010 at 5:47 pm

Your website is very helpful. Especially with the meanings. I have to laugh about this post, because my tarot cards do stalk me. However, they stalk me in my dreams. Two cards will appear out of nowhere. But, they stopped once I started paying attention to the message it sent me.

Anyways,thank you for this wonderful site.


Biddy_Tarot August 6, 2010 at 9:44 am

Thanks Courtney for your positive feedback. Glad to hear I’m not the only one who gets ‘stalked’ by my Tarot cards!



Grace April 17, 2011 at 9:54 pm

Hello Biddy.For two weeks i have been doing tarot card readings every other day on different websites.On the majority of all my readings it keeps drawing The Empress card.I am currently awaiting to see if i am pregnant and was thinking this could be a sign.If not its fine with me but its so strange it keeps popping up ALL the time.Any meaning to this?


Biddy_Tarot April 18, 2011 at 6:52 am

Hi Grace,
Well, the Empress can definitely be associated with pregnancy and fertility. However, it can also indicate a number of other influences as well (creativity, expression, beauty, feminine energy, etc.), so you will need to look to other cards in your readings to see if pregnancy is really a possibility. You might look out for the Page of Cups, Ace of Wands, Three of Cups and the Sun. Of course, best to head off to the chemist and buy yourself a pregnancy test if you think it’s a possibility – then you’ll know for sure!
Best of luck,


Grace April 18, 2011 at 8:42 pm

Hello Biddy.Thankyou very much indeed for answering my question.Now you,ve said that ive also had the Sun quite a few times too and the Three of cups once or twice but i will for sure look at the whole picture also and look at it as a whole instead of not just concentrating on that specific card.But its still exciting though.Leave it to fate.Great website.Very informative and so interesting.All the very best to you and your visitors.


isha May 21, 2011 at 4:24 am

hey biddy wenever i do readings for someone the same card appears in all the questions i ask… for different people i do readings and if they ask 3 QUESTIONS same card appears in all three whats the reason behind?


Biddy_Tarot May 21, 2011 at 4:48 pm

Hi Isha,
Wow, three times in three readings! Now that’s stalking!! I would say that the message of that particular card is very strong for the client and may be indicative of a deeper issue that is at play and is begging to be addressed by the client. You may even like to draw an additional card to ask, “What is the significance of this card in the client’s life?”
Hope that helps,


Sam June 13, 2011 at 9:07 am

Hello Biddy!
I keep getting The Tower card; it is ridiculous to what extent this ill omen is ‘stalking’ me.
It keeps appearing not only in my tarot readings but in my stichomancy readings as well! I nearly jumped out of my skin when my scarcely illustrated fairytale book opened to a picture of a crumbling tower. And what tower too! It is nearly the exact copy of the tarot card; it happened the same day that I kept getting the tower in my tarot card readings (no matter how many times I shuffled the deck).
I know it is my conscience speaking, it has been eating me for years, reducing me to a petrified hare.
Is there any way I can escape a tragic outcome?


Biddy_Tarot June 13, 2011 at 9:39 am

Hi Sam,
Thanks for sharing. I actually really like the Tower… I know it looks quite scary with that tower being struck by lightning and the people leaping out of the windows, however what I like most about this card is that with destruction comes creation. So, reflect on what it is in your own life that needs to be destructed, broken down, and then rebuilt. What beliefs, thoughts, perceptions, etc. need to be shaken up and changed for the better? What structures are being altered in your own life? How can you facilitate this change in a way that will create new beginnings and new thought patterns?
Hope this helps, Biddy


Noelani June 17, 2011 at 12:36 pm

I agree about the Tower. It kept coming up in several of my readings, even when other people did them. Often times the death card would appear too. It scared me and I was often given advice at face value of the cards(without taking hints from theierintution as well) which ade everything seem doom and gloom. Along with star card, which appears frequently, I’m now starting to see what I wasn’t able long ago. The Tower does not represent (in all cases) doom or destruction but almost rebirth or a new creation. It basically says “everything you thought you knew, you DONT!” and shows that your life is about to be taken on a wild ride. In regards to the relaitonship reading, this proved to be correct. Both of us had some negative thinking that needed to be sorted out. I needed to learn things, which ened up being quite painful. He needed a jolt and some time to think things over.

As for the Death card, I beleive it means the same thing or something similar. I was often given the doom and gloom reading but found it eant rebirth. I found this to be particularly true in my general readings(where my thought processes needed to be changed) and relationship reading as well.

And of course, the star card. I actually dont like this one because I need to work on patience.

I find it’s best not to take these cards for face value. Listen to your inner voice or eyes and it will help guide you to the right answer. Also, theres just soem things you don’t need to know… yet. :)


Biddy_Tarot June 17, 2011 at 2:43 pm

Fantastic insights and thoughts – thanks for sharing! I love that you have been able to see the positive elements to what are typically very ‘feared’ cards in the Tarot.


Janine August 2, 2011 at 7:20 am

I was wondering if getting the same card in a reading twice means the same as described above, meaning you must pay attention to it and it is of great importance for you to know. Because I think I might have pulled the same card twice in a reading and it was about: A boy looking at me with loving eyes ( I think this means he is in love with me)Does getting and hearing this twice in the reading while I may pull some cards, if this means it is certain that he likes me? And I was wondering wich cards can tell you if someone might be in loce with you.


Biddy_Tarot August 2, 2011 at 10:31 am

Hi Janine,
Getting the same card in a reading twice is often a sign of your cards ‘stalking’ you! So, yes, it is important to pay attention to that card. I think it is also important to go with what your gut feeling is about that card, so if it feels like a sign that there is someone who is in love with you, then that is certainly a possibility.


Janine August 2, 2011 at 7:22 am

And I had a reading with the Minor Arcana cards so it’s wich of those cards that can tell you that.


joanna September 27, 2011 at 3:05 am

Hi Biddy,
I went through a bad breakup with a man I’ve known for many years, still somewhat friends with and still in love with. I’ve done readings on various sites to help find my right path, and one card that always seems to pop up is the Knight of Cups (and sometimes a few others about potential mates). Also, when getting readings with traditional playing cards – marriage bed and ring always pop up, too.

Is this just my subconscious hopes coming out or are the cards really trying to tell me something? Considering my situation, I’m cautious but I’m also VERY new to this so I would love any direction on how to view this.


Biddy_Tarot September 27, 2011 at 2:02 pm

Hi Joanna,
Thanks for sharing. I typically see the Knight of Cups as someone new who is incredibly romantic and who will sweep you off your feet. So, it might actually be representative of someone other than your ex?
You could also argue that, yes, it’s your subconscious talking to you, but I can’t help but think it’s mixed in with what the Universe has in store for you too.
Warm regards, Brigit


L August 1, 2012 at 4:34 am

I choose not to read reversals. Recently, I asked the same question within a few minutes times pulling a single card each time. I shuffled and put out all cards accordion style and felt for which card called out to me. Twice I selected Wheel of Fortune. I could use some turn around of luck right now. Could this mean it’s going to happen? Seems like more than synchronicity or happenstance that I should pull it twice.


Geri September 16, 2012 at 4:56 am

I have done my own tarot cards (celtic spread) 4 times in the last few weeks and there are 4 cards that keep coming up and it’s freaking me out. I am relatively new to doing this, so I’m not sure what it means. These are the 4 cards that keep showing up: 5 swords (position 4,6,8), 7 swords (position 5 and twice in position 10), 4 wands (all 3 times in position 9), ace pentacles (position 6 and twice position 7). I am puzzled as the 5 and 7 seem very negative and talk about deception. There is nothing I can even identify with to understand where this is coming from. The question is always the same, it is a love question… if that helps. Can you help?


Brigit September 17, 2012 at 9:04 am

Hi Geri,

5 of Swords is usually about conflict, 7 of Swords about betrayal and deception. 4 of Wands is about harmony in the home – quite a different picture to the first two cards, and the Ace of Pentacles is about new financial ventures, jobs and opportunities for manifestation.

Sometimes readings are not obvious until a period of time after the reading. So, just sit on it and keep your eyes open for any potential issues that may be bubbling away under the surface.

If you would like a more in-depth interpretation of your readings, please see

Thanks, Brigit


Maria November 29, 2012 at 9:25 pm

Hi Biddy!
I have had it rough after a breakup a couple of months ago and started to use the tarot-cards almost right away. Many of the same cards keep apperaing like the sun, the lovers, the world etc which I consider to be positive cards telling me that things will be alright. However, nothing is happening in my real life situation so I’ve started to loose faith completely. However, the cards keep appearing! Do you think that I can still trust in the cards?


Brigit November 30, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Have faith! Not everything transpires immediately and you may need to wait a little while longer :-)


Stefan December 3, 2012 at 10:05 am

I keep seeing the moon all the time in future position, And the cards before usually are positive. I am thinking of embarking on a adventure, Sort of like dropping everything and leaving but am not sure if its telling me to be careful or feel the ‘fear’ but carry on walking the lane till the end anyway, Any thoughts ?


Brigit December 3, 2012 at 10:59 am

I would say that there is a lot of underlying fear that you may not be aware of. Try relating to your dreams, or using self-hypnosis or meditation to access and then release those fears.


chantel December 5, 2012 at 2:44 am

hello!! love this site!!! i keep drawing the sun and the empress…any thoughts?


Brigit December 5, 2012 at 11:20 am

Beautiful! So radiant, abundant and successful! Great cards to have stalking you!!


nicky January 6, 2013 at 12:44 pm

Çan any one give me any inside to a yearly spread ..ace cups.5cups.8cups high priest. Hermit.2 pentacles .10 pentacles. Devil. 6 pentacles. Empress. 10 Wands . 3 swords .knight swords can any one please give me any inside as it is a reading for my self ment thanks x


renee January 8, 2013 at 11:21 am

hi, something really strange happened in my reading that I’ve never experienced before. I pulled the fool card, nine of cups, ten of cups, page of cups, queen of swords, king of swords, ace of swords. Can someone please help me understand why this would happen? Thanks


Brigit January 10, 2013 at 5:40 pm

When you see one card and then the next card in that sequence together, it often means progress, development and maturity or the cycle is nearing completion.


Marina January 21, 2013 at 2:34 am

Hello biddy. I have asked the cards many times if a past flame has feeling for me and the card “Lovers” keeps coming up in the future position. The other surrounding cards are often The High Priestess, The judgement, the Emperor and Strength. Death and Temperance also came once or twice in present position.

The thing is this man has a relationship now with another woman but I still got the lovers tarot card in the present position when he was single and asking the same question.

What could this mean?


Brigit January 22, 2013 at 7:40 pm

I would say that this is a positive sign. Trust your intuition and your inner voice to guide you (High Priestess & Judgement). Perhaps he will come around if his relationship with the other woman draws to an end. Have patience.


Katherine January 27, 2013 at 6:30 am

Hi Biddy. I have been doing a 3 card reading for myself. Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. For about the past 10 days I have been getting The Hemit, (mostly in the Today) and for about the last 5 days I have been getting the Hanged Man (sacrifice) with The Hermit (withdrawal) in the Yesterday or Tomorrow. I have tried to work these two cards out, on there own and together and keep getting stuck. I am wondering now, do I keep getting these cards because I am on my own too much. I keep telling people that I enjoy my own company and maybe this is why I am called a recluse. Thank you


Brigit January 30, 2013 at 9:32 pm

Both cards suggest taking some time out from the usual day-to-day life, in order to attain a deeper spiritual connection. The Hermit’s focus is inward, while the Hanged Man’s focus is outward. And the Hermit chooses a period of introspection, while the Hanged Man may be forced into introspection. Think about how the two play out in your life right now.


Shanae April 6, 2013 at 1:42 pm

Your site is beautiful, last night i had a dream i was having my cards read to me and each time there would be 3 cards being flipped they would all be the same thing but the picture would be slightly different giving them a different meaning. Would you be able to tell me what this means ? Just abit confused also the cards were being read out to me while i was falling and the world was exploding around me by the end we had nothing but our families and everyone was happy. Please help :) cheers Shanae x


Brigit April 8, 2013 at 12:19 pm

That sounds very transformative. I would focus in on what the cards looked like and the messages of those cards.


Harlem2la April 15, 2013 at 2:35 pm

Hi Biddy! I just want to thank you whole heartedly for this post! I kept getting the same card–hanged man, in almost all of my readings that were largely unrelated. I knew there was a deeper meaning to this and after reading this post, I did the recommended spread above. It was so helpful!! It opened my eyes to a revelation I hadn’t considered before. I am so thankful for your website and this post!

Never too late to keep learning yourself :-)


Brigit April 18, 2013 at 1:58 pm

So glad I could help!


Sara May 2, 2013 at 7:17 pm

Hi Biddy, I came across this page because I have done a few readings for myself (different questions) and keep pulling the four of wands. It was reversed twice and upright once. Regardless of position, it is always there. At first I tried to read by intuition, but am relatively new to reading so I double checked what some other interpretations could be. Upright or reversed I am having a hard time relating to this card but feel like its trying to tell me something, I am just not understanding. Any help or interpretation of this card or ideas would be greatly appreciated.


Brigit May 2, 2013 at 7:41 pm

Try a meditation with the card…


Ellie May 18, 2013 at 7:18 pm

Hi Biddy,
For the past couple of months I have been getting the Death card. At first I shrugged it off but now it is becoming intimidating and on a morning pull it ruins my day. I is often accompanied by the five of cups just to make things sweeter and it is really getting to me. I have stopped reading for others and I am nervous whenever I pick up a tarot deck. It is not just my regular cards. I am a collector and so decks have never even been used for a reading but these show the same pattern. Not all the time of course but I would say it is well over 60% of the time. I think it may be about my neighbour who has a terminal husband and is constantly talking about hospital and illness. But then I think it may be about me and my kids. Any advice. I feel like giving up reading although I have been doing it over twenty years!


Brigit May 19, 2013 at 9:12 pm

Hi Ellie,

I’m sorry you’re feeling such worry from this card. On the face of it, it seems very dramatic, yes. But deep beneath is a much more profound meaning of change and letting go. I would suggest meditating with this card to understand it’s personal message for you. Here are some ideas on how to go about it –

Warm regards,


nicky May 19, 2013 at 10:11 pm

Hi could some 1 please help I keep having the death card an yesterday it jumped out the deck whilst shuffled acompanyed with the world could any one please give me any inside ment thanks Nicky


Brigit May 20, 2013 at 7:23 pm

I would offer the same advice as I have to Nicky… try meditating with these two cards to delve deeper into their signficance for you.


Chantelle May 20, 2013 at 2:59 pm

Hi Biddy,

I bought some tarot cards as a tool to help me improvise and write. I really don’t consider myself as a spiritual person. I usually just draw three cards then try to come up with a story. But not matter how I shuffle the cards and cut the deck I often come up with the Queen of Cups, on a daily basis? And the 8 of Cups, but to a lesser extent. Why is this?


Brigit May 20, 2013 at 7:24 pm

The Queen of Cups is lovely… this is like your ‘writer’ self, the self that connects with her emotions to tell inspiring stories. The Eight of Cups… may be a form of escapism and leaving behind a previous life/lifestyle to pursue your dreams.


tina mason June 9, 2013 at 1:32 am

I cannot understand why the same cards the 6 of cups came out at least 10 times whilest shuffling sometimes just flying out of the deck what is this telling me thank you Confused


Brigit June 10, 2013 at 7:17 pm

Take a look at the interpretations for the Six of Cups and see what resonates with you –


Meg June 29, 2013 at 6:19 am

Hi Biddy,

I completely agree with being ‘stalked’ by my tarot cards! On different readings the Four of Pentacles keeps appearing! It even jumps out of the deck. It is almost like it is an unconscious matter that I have no control over. Any thoughts about the Four of Pentacles?


Brigit June 29, 2013 at 8:18 am

What are you trying to hold on to? What are you grasping at, for greater security?


JRO July 5, 2013 at 2:01 pm

Oh i love your site. You have a discussion for everything! love it! I am being stalked by the three of pentacles with regards to a friend/and his feelings . I have been concerned, and asking too much -I know, but that CARD keeps popping into my spreads.. almost to the point of humor. I guess i need to study this card very closing and listen to what it is saying to me….


Brigit July 5, 2013 at 8:55 pm

Indeed! Try meditating with the card too – – it will help to uncover the more personal messages for you.


JRO July 6, 2013 at 2:17 am

Thanks Brigit! I will try what you suggest… :)


wanda york July 8, 2013 at 7:00 am

Thank the Goddess I was glad to find this post!!! The Queen of Cups has been stalking me for weeks!!! I draw one card every day. And 3 times this week she has appeared to me! She is the embodment of myself I am a cancer,soul card and personality card Hermit. But i consider that to be “my card” Will have to do some serious meditation on this!


mia July 25, 2013 at 7:35 am

I have a funny related story, I let my sister in law ask when her green card is coming and my cards sometimes have a funny personality. They said a date (she had heard that date before) and gave 4 of cups for her to be patient and not worry but focus on something else in the meantime while she’s waiting. She asked again if it was going any quicker, no date this time just 4 cups again. Then today she asked again and it was so funny 9cups , king wands and 4cups of course. basically said “I know your ready to act but you gotta be patient” lol she doesn’t know Tarot but she sure knows what 4 cups means now lol.


Brigit July 26, 2013 at 6:37 am

Great story! Thanks for sharing.


Skye August 2, 2013 at 5:46 am

I have been stalked by the four of cups all this week. I draw a card everyday in the morning after meditation and have drawn four of cups twice this week and it has appeared in a spread I did for myself trying to understand a personal conflict and in a general reading of a friend. It has gotten to the point where I am looking into any possible aspect of the card that I may have looked over. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!


Brigit August 2, 2013 at 7:06 pm

It may indicate a need to go within, rather than trying to ‘fix’ things with your friendship. Find a place of peace internally and it will flow into your friendship in a positive way.


Meg August 2, 2013 at 7:17 am

Hi Biddy,
I am glad you uploaded this post as it is very true for me. For some reason the Knight of Swords keeps appearing in my tarot readings for myself without fail. It is usually in the present or future position. Any thoughts about this card for my situation? Thanks.


Brigit August 2, 2013 at 7:05 pm

Oftentimes it will have a very personal message, so I would recommend meditating with this card to see how it resonates personally for you.


Cindy September 13, 2013 at 9:22 am


Yesterday, all the readings I did for clients, well the Hangman kept coming up. Like 9 times! Does anyone knows what this could mean?


Brigit September 15, 2013 at 7:35 am

What do you need to surrender to? Or, how can you hit the ‘pause’ button? Or, how can you look at things from a different perspective?


Jennii September 24, 2013 at 8:31 am

Hi there I was wondering if you could help? :)

I am have recently had a major change in my life with my partner, moving and quitting the fertility clinic ( I was born with gastroschisic and have only one tube with pcos and have been on meds for over a year until 6 months ago & were basically starting again together but from scratch due to the struggles of life ie: not living together or engaged ) I done a 3 card spread as I have a feeling now we have stopped the fertility clinic and ive stopped thinking about it all the time I will indeed soon become pregnant (eek)
This is what I received:
Past- two wands
Present – 4 wands
Future – nine cups
I pulled one more for clarification and received the nine pentacles ?
Also if you could possibly tell me the timings id be appreciative,
Also the empress, tower and world are stalking me at the moment.
Thanks for your time,


Jennifer September 26, 2013 at 12:21 am

Hi Bridget,,
I’m being stalked by the 3 of Cups (upright)..


Meg October 15, 2013 at 10:11 am

Ever since I began reading tarot (about a year ago), I’ve been stalked by two members of the Swords suit. First, it was the Nine of Swords with my Rider Waite deck. Yeah, a lot of things ended badly in my life. The image of a person sitting up in the middle of the night, weeping, is all too apt.

Now it’s Two of Swords with my Shadowscapes deck. Of the dozen readings I’ve done with Shadowscapes, I’d say six or seven of them have featured Two of Swords in some way. At least the reason why is fairly obvious. I’m indecisive about a lot of things in my life, which is inhibiting my ability to grow up, get stuff done, etc. My latest reading included Two of Wands as well, which gives me some confidence. . . .


Brigit October 17, 2013 at 4:16 pm

Often, though, when you bring this into conscious awareness, it becomes easier to deal with.


Daisy October 29, 2013 at 11:41 am

Yes! I have been stalked by a specific card recently and I wasn’t sure what it meant in my own readings, so I pulled another card to try and clarify it. But the next day, there it was again, lol. I still think I’m not getting something so I may try using the above tips! I’ve also meditated on it…


Destiney January 27, 2014 at 8:43 am

Okay is like this I’ve grown up around tarot my whole life i learned at a very young age how to use it but recently the same cards keep surfacing no matter the question & even when i asked no question. First it was the queen of swords upright. It was to the point that she even showed up in readings i did for other people. I have since figured out what it was trying to tell me! Then my cards stopped doing working but only for readings done for me. So i cleansed my cards! Didnt touch then for almost 3 weeks! Did a few readings that worked again. Now after two days of readings the 9 of swords keeps coming up as my outcome card! That card has always bothered me idk why its just gives me a bad feeling! So what could this card mean?


Marina January 27, 2014 at 8:54 am

Hello Destiney,

Depending on the position, it almost always denotes an agony and period of loneliness, sadness and despair. If it’s in the past or present position the effects are minimized, but if it’s in the future position, it’s highly unfavorable.
Anyways, don’t panic. I used to get this card when I broke up with my ex and I was in deep depression for a couple of years (yes I know that is not short) but in future readings all I got repeatedly was the card lovers which indicates a past life connection.

I think you should be patient and do a reading again for this card to see the surrounding cards and draw a conclusion.


Destiney January 27, 2014 at 9:17 am

Its away on an upright position! & always the future card!


jasmine February 4, 2014 at 12:30 am

I just installed a tarot app on my phone, it gives the option to draw a single card or Celtic cross. In my Celtic cross reading the Empress, Sun and Magician all came up twice. Are apps a waste of time and is this likely a glitch or is it worth me looking into it further?

It all depends on the algorithms they use. Some may be quite simple and you might get similar cards. Others may be more complex and more random, and better for a more authentic reading.

This is all within three days:
I had a reading done on the first day and I drew the Star card in my future position.
Two days after that I downloaded two different apps. One app is straight tarot reading and the other was a random horoscope app (I cannot know it offered tarot readings also.) So on the first two readings I asked for the guidance to happiness. In the first reading I dres the Star card in the future position. In the second I drew the Star card in the future position also. The third reading was a one card draw. I asked a question about a love but definitely had everything else on my mind and I was asking the question. The one card I drew, the Star. Those are the only three tarot readings I have had/done in years. What do you think this means? Is there any significant??

Absolutely – have faith.

The ace of cups comes up all the time when I cut the deck the ace of cup is there almost every time it falls out the deck sometime. My friend shuffled the deck passed it back to me when I cut the deck the ace of cups was there. Starting to really freak me out. What’s it mean

That is a very positive card to have following you. I usually go on however the card makes me feel. Aces usually symbolize great opportunities available to you but the card reminds that you can have every opportunity handed to you but those opportunities will fade away if you don’t take action- take charge of your destiny type thing.

Hey I’m also a new tarot reader and have come upon a possibility of a new relationship with a guy I know. I keep getting a lot of fertility cards like the empress, and marriage cards like the sun, 2 of cups, 10 of pentacles, and the 9 of cups. Different cards indicating marriage and family appear in my readings about him. During my most recent reading I got 3 cards that indicate marriage, the 2 of cups, 9 of cups, and the sun. Does this mean I will wind up marrying this guy and starting a family with him?


Brigit June 2, 2014 at 7:47 pm

It does sound promising. I would say, open yourself up to that possibility and see where it takes you.

Hello, I keep drawing the following 2 cards over and over again, the empress and 8 of cups? Is this pertaining to a pregnancy?


Brigit June 10, 2014 at 4:41 pm

It depends very much on your situation and when these cards are coming up (i.e. what questions you’re asking).


Brittany June 9, 2014 at 1:29 pm

Hey Brigit, lately when I’ve been asking about this person, I keep getting The Empress. Along with other cards, like ace of wands, the lovers, the sun, and two of pentacles. What could this mean?


Brigit June 10, 2014 at 4:38 pm

The Empress is a very fertile and nurturing card – perhaps nurturing a new relationship with this person?


Brian June 20, 2014 at 12:25 pm

I was trying to get a reading with my significant other. The first card I pulled was a ten of cups. My son interrupted and we reshuffled and I pulled the same card again. Again my son interrupted and I pulled the seven of swords. My son interrupted again and after a reshuffle I pulled the ten of cups again. What does it mean to pull the same card 3/4 times with a full deck?


Vanessa July 2, 2014 at 5:18 am

Dear Biddy,
I love your site, and God and Goddess bless you for all the good you do for others. My soulmate just broke up with me, out of the blue. My trusted psychic predicted marriage with him many times, and my lover and I were on that path ;we are both middle aged, if that matters.)
I am devastated and heartbroken. The Page of Cups is stalking me LIKE CRAZY as is the Queen of Wands (I don’t think she’s me) AND the Knight of Swords. Any thoughts from anyone? I’m just dead inside.


Brigit July 3, 2014 at 3:53 pm

You may want to meditate with those three cards. Bring up the imagery of each one in your mind’s eye, then see how each one interacts with each other. You may also want to bring up an image of yourself and see how you relate to these 3 cards.


Suz July 4, 2014 at 5:07 am

Hi Biddy!
I found this page after the same card popped up (and out!) in the same position of a 3 card spread 5 times in a row!!! I knew I had to get to the bottom of it. Ok, so now it gets weirder…I read your explanation, and went “ahhh, I see!”…then I noticed the card in the accompanying illustration: the 8 of swords!!! This is the very same card that has been stalking me, except mine is reversed!! I am used to my tarot cards freaking me out (but I love my little ‘friends’, which I had for over 20 yrs, lol!). Please can you shed some light on all this strangeness?! The question I have been asking each time is in relation to a Masters degree assignment I feel that I may have failed, and get the results for on Tuesday. I’m really scared about the grade I’ll probably get. I have also asked the same question for a friend who is also worried about the same thing, and the card came out in her reading as well, and in the same position!! Thanks!


Brigit July 10, 2014 at 6:49 pm

My suggestion would be to read up about the Eight of Swords and meditate with this card to see what comes up for you.


Suz July 4, 2014 at 5:27 am

Hi Biddy, I’m back again with a little more to add!! I just did the 3 card spread you suggested…and lo and behold, I turn over no. 3 (re. blockages), and there it is again: the 8 of swords, but this time not reversed!!! What is going on here?? The spread didn’t make it clear to me the reason of the card, but I’m probably just missing something obvious. No. 1 was the 7 of swords and no. 2 was the 7 of pentacles (neither was reversed). Very strange card behaviour!!


Tracey August 8, 2014 at 11:04 am

The ace of pentacles is lately my reoccuring card.


Linda August 28, 2014 at 12:45 am

I keep picking the six of cups almost every time . Sometimes it is straight up but most time reversed ??
