A Tarot Reading for Pisces

A special tarot reading just for Pisces!

Every week I pull one card from my grandmother’s tarot deck and write about what that card can mean for each sign. And last year, I wrote about Pisces personal tarot cards. Today, I am going to pull a past, present, and future card for the ethereal empath. I will give a brief description of each card before discussing what the card may mean for the mutable water sign. I may pull a card from the major arcana, representing our inner wisdom. Or I may pull a suit card, representing outside influences. I may even pull a court card signifying a specific person in your life.

These cards could be meaningful to you if you have Pisces anywhere in your big three. You can check your birth chart here.

Past- The Chariot

This is the card of change. This card belongs to the Major Arcana and it is believed that Major cards hold deeper and more specific meanings.  In my grandmother’s deck, The Chariot is represented as a masculine figure driving a chariot pulled by two animals or beasts, with a city view in the background as if it is being left behind. However, the card may look different based on which deck you use.

Though the card’s image may vary from deck to deck, the meaning is often the same. The Chariot represents a notable life change. This may be a major or seemingly minor life change, but it is significant either way. This change is more than likely positive, but it is definitely necessary. The Chariot can also represent a change that needs to happen within. When this card pops up in a reading, you must ask yourself “Am I the one driving the chariot?” If the answer is “no,” it is time to put yourself back in the driver’s seat.

The Chariot wants us to discard any negative influence that is not serving us and embrace this next step in our life.  

Pisces are known to be extremely sentimental. And because of their sentimentality, it can be hard for them to let go of things, even if those things have a negative influence on them.

You may have left certain relationships, jobs, and habits behind, but they could still have an emotional hold on you. This card wants you to know that letting them go was ultimately a positive decision and now it’s time to take control of your own life.

Present- The Seven of Cups

This is the card of opportunity and self-confidence. In tarot, the number seven represents spirituality, wisdom, mystique, or deception. It symbolizes the need to wait until one is ready to move forward. It can also represent healing and/or psychic abilities. 

Cups are the suit of romance and emotion. This suit can represent all stages of love, whether it be new, unrequited, or long-standing. When a cup card comes up in a reading it can mean that we must make a decision based on emotion rather than logic. This suit reminds us that it is okay to listen to our hearts rather than our heads sometimes.

In my grandmother’s deck, the card is depicted as a shadowy figure standing in front of a large gray cloud, and in the cloud, there are seven golden cups. In one cup, there is a seemingly translucent face. Another cup holds a shrouded statue with outstretched arms and is surrounded by a glowing red light. The other five cups hold a yellow snake, a small blue castle, colorful jewels, a blue dragon, and a laurel wreath. The cup that holds the laurel wreath appears to have a subtle skull engraved on it. 

Though the card’s image may vary from deck to deck, the meaning is often the same. The Seven of Cups represents opportunities in your career or in your romantic relationships. But the opportunities involve you having to make a difficult choice. This card wants you to know that it is okay to think with your heart rather than your head when considering this choice and opportunity. This wants you to make these decisions for yourself. Don’t let others make your choices for you.

When this card pops up in a reading, it can signify that you are overthinking a relationship and you may be assuming the worst about a prospective love interest. This card does not want you to jump to conclusions. 

This present card may tie in well with the past card. Letting go of past influences and taking control of your life comes with difficult choices. In the past, you may have been a bit passive so you didn’t mind when people made decisions for you or influenced your decisions. But this card wants you to make a decision for yourself based on your own happiness.

Future- The Fool

This week is the card of new beginnings and endless possibilities. This card belongs to the Major Arcana and it is believed that Major cards hold deeper and more specific meanings.

In my grandmother’s deck, the Fool card depicts a young, golden-haired androgynous figure dressed in a greedy, gold, and red tunic and a feathered cap. They carry a knapsack on their shoulder and they hold a white rose in one hand. The sun shines above them, and a dog follows at their feet. They are walking very close to the edge of a cliff. There is a craggy mountain range in the background.

The Fool card says anything is possible. Which is pretty appropriate since we are just a few weeks into the New Year. This card symbolizes intuition and opportunity. When this card pops up in a reading, it means that it is time for the querent to take a leap of faith. The Fool encourages the querent to reconnect with their inner child and discover who they are. It can also represent levity and spontaneity. This card says “life is too short to take yourself too seriously.”

The Fool card wants you to seize whatever opportunity arises for you. However, this card also warns the querent against making immature decisions.

The Fool card in the future placement kind of ties this whole reading together. This card wants you to know that if you need the advice of the first two cards by taking control of your life and making your own decisions, you will be able to start a whole new chapter of your life.
