Calliope led me to an interesting Tarot siteand I had a go.

Spooky stuff.

My question was about whether all will be well with the twins and I’ll have the sort of birth I want (at the moment I am trying to sort out a homebirth if possible but finding it hard to get on the NHS midwives list)

My present position- NINE OF STAFFS – Strength

This card represents your inner strength… there is a need to protect and nurture what you have gained … With the achievements that you have experienced so far, you may be feeling frightened of losing, or having taken from you, what you have gained.

Crossing me- THE HANGED MAN

The lesson of The Hanged Man is the discovery of a state of inner peace, which enables you to surrender to even difficult situations. This is a time when you need to be patient, and to try not to force an instant solution.

This card advises you to be prepared to wait a while, until the timing is right for action. What you need will come to you in due course.


The Maid of Swords shows that it is now time to rebel against any constraints that are holding you back or blocking your way. You are now realising what energy or people are keeping you from realising your goal, and are ready to speak your mind, make your truth known, and change the situation.

…It is time to be uncompromising, to be willing to stand alone if you need to.

Passing out of your Life- KNIGHT OF SWORDS

If something no longer serves a useful purpose, it is time to let go. New growth can take place once previous, unhelpful, issues have been dealt with, resolved, and released. ( I could interpret this as being about my fear of hospitals and trauma about my mother’s death and all the miscarriages)

The Past- FOUR OF VESICAS – Integrity

The Four of Vesicas indicates the need to deal with power issues in a constructive way. There is stability and deep integrity in your dealings with others. You expect people to be as you are yourself, and are disappointed if they let you down. (This could be about my continual feeling of being maltreated by uncaring medical professionals, when in fact, it’s just the system)


The Ace of Vesicas indicates the ability to be fully grounded and earthed in reality. It signifies a state of balance and harmony, and is a reminder that it is spirit that gives shape to all form.

This card … represents wealth on all levels of your life – material, emotional and spiritual.

Where you Will find Yourself- THE FOOL

The Fool card is a time of new beginnings, the first step on the journey of self-discovery. It denotes an attitude of trust and innocence, even naivete and also a sense of wonder. The Fool dares to take risks that others would not consider, because he is fully immersed in the moment, and has no concern for consequences.

This card shows the demeanour of one who is able to step blindly into the future, in a state of perfect, and blessed, trust. The Fool shows that you need to trust, to take a risk, to have a fresh start and leave behind past patterns of thinking or being that have held you back. It encourages you to take a leap of faith and jump joyously into the unknown.

How Others See you- EIGHT OF SWORDS – Release

The Eight of Swords indicates that strong feelings need to be safely released. There is a need to free yourself from repressive situations, in order to re-create a happier and more purposeful life. This card signifies a recognition of inner struggle, which leads to a process of ‘letting go’ in order to reach a solution.

The Outcome- FIVE OF STAFFS – Empowerment

You are now becoming aware of your inner power, and are confident enough to know that you exercise control over important aspects of your life. This card denotes an attitude of fearlessness, and you can even enjoy battling out a situation – partly for the excitement of the adrenaline surge, and partly because you know that, ultimately, you will be the victor….
This card is about the willingness to do battle with obstacles, and it enables you to draw on the shamanic aspects of yourself – you have the ability to tap into your own power, and can bring about inner healing through visioning what is necessary…. Whatever you believe you can accomplish, you will be able to accomplish.

I could read all that as saying I’ll overcome the obstacles and be empowered by the birth and put to bed some of my lingering fears and unhappiness about all things medical. Which I did in part with little DG’s birth.

Have a go at the Tarot and tell me what you think about its reading for you!
