All cards below are from the Alice in Wonderland tarot card deck by Barbara Moore and Eugene Smith.
King of Pentacles card. Aries, as we wrap up 2020 there is a similar vibe within receiving the King of Pentacles card. This card represents finalising a task or journey, and likewise financial abundance. This is a great time to finally be able to say you accomplished a hard journey full circle – no matter if it’s just completing the year itself or more specifically something within your work or personal life. You’ve tried many methods of what could work for you professionally, and you’ve definitely finally found a route that works for you. Much like the King of Pentacles, you’re sitting confidently in good, stable wealth. It might not be much or it might be a lot – it’s all subjective, however it’s there and stable. Though at times the Mad Hatter comes across as whacky or “not all there” he actually has a lot of knowledge within him. So while some might see you Aries as sporadic or headstrong, you’ve got your wits about you!
Six of Cups card. Taurus, this is a fun card, as the Six of Cups represents letting go some adult matters or responsibilities. As we see the White Rabbit offering Alice a cup of gifts, it’s almost like he’s telling her to let loose and enjoy what’s around her. We see an older elephant in the background representing adult / older issues floating away. This is to say you can let them go for a while and just enjoy what is around you for now. There is solid ground that Alice is standing on, representing a sturdy and strong foundation under her – much like what you have right now. A positive sign!
King of Cups card. Though the King is floating on a turbulent sea, much like him, you’re balanced with your feelings and have rational thoughts. Your thought process this week is looking very sensible and not unreasonable. The King is holding his cards close, which might resemble not showing all your thoughts or feelings to everyone. This doesn’t hurt from time to time, as it gives you space and time to really think for yourself. Apply that this week!
The Empress card. A great card, Cancer, as the Empress resembles a feeling of urging you to go out into nature and really ground your energy once more. Much like the Empress in the card surrounded by nature, and Alice behind her – it’s all together a reassuring sense of being okay. Additionally, the Empress has taken her shoe off, signifying a sense of comfortability and relaxing. The Empress card resembles fertility but beyond reproduction – it could be fertility around ideas, concepts, adventures, or experiences! The Empress is a reminder of the feelings of gratitude and being conscious around what’s going on. Find your heart and really sit well with your heart this week – attend to it and give yourself what is needed.
The High Priestess card. A lovely card to receive, Leo. This card resembles your intuition and that right now your spirituality meter is off the charts. In the card we see Alice looking into what we imagine to be the Looking Glass – in it she most likely sees herself or her higher self to be exact. Regardless of your gender, it’s key in receiving this card that you balance your masculine and feminine self – do things that attend to both areas. In confusing times this week, the High Priestess will guide you to find the answers deep within yourself. All will be answered within. Trust your higher self and the High Priestess this week, as the strongest connection you’ll have in this world is the one you have with yourself.
Four of Wands card. Virgo, the Four of Wands represents joy, happiness, and contentment. Use this week to do just what Alice is doing – embracing the joys around her and really enjoying her time. Even if this week is stressful, there is joy in being able to sit and find gratitude in the quiet moments. This card resembles two individuals sitting under a sturdy four pillar canopy and enjoying time together. Likewise, in the background we see a house of cards – most likely resembling the home environment. This card also resembles the family / home life, and could mean you’re working on your home life, working things out with your family, or handling family matters this week. Regardless, it’s a positive sign and one that you can definitely embrace. There will be plenty of time and reason to celebrate.
Seven of Wands card. Well Libra, this week it seems you feel as though everyone is accusing you of something or has an issue with you. Just like the Seven of Wands card, all the wands are pointing at Alice – however she seems ready and roaring with hers. This is most likely a sign for your week that no matter what others have against you – you’ll always have your own back. Protect yourself at all costs this week, know yourself, and find strength in not needing anyone else. Maybe this week it might be wise to establish boundaries around friends, family, or work colleagues? This might help to avoid further conflict.
Knight of Cups card. A graceful and calm card, Scorpio. This card resembles the Knight in Alice in Wonderland as someone who is calm, poised, and experienced. Just like you this week, it’ll be good to push forward in work and life in a strategic and composed way. Don’t get frantic or over energised, do things with rationality. There is peace and tranquility through your week, really embrace that and find joy in it – as it might not last forever.
King of Swords card. Sagittarius, though we know Humpty Dumpty to be fragile and very breakable, he sits confidently on the wall with his sword held high and dictionary held closely. This could be a great sign for your week – whatever comes your way – you’ll be ready and calm. You aren’t waving your weapons about but rather, you’re ready for anything that comes your way – physically or verbally. Go about your week as normal and remember that nothing bad comes from being prepared!
Temperance card. A great card to receive, Capricorn, that focuses on the importance of balance, tranquility, and a good thought process. As we see Alice contemplating which side of the mushroom to take, it reminds us that there is no harm in taking our time to think things through. Likewise we see the Caterpillar in the background looking rather impatient but this reminds us that in life, there will always be someone or a group of people who won’t understand us or our thought process. Ignore those people, and take your time this week – allow yourself to think clearly.
Justice card. A very poignant meaning of the Justice card is that our actions will bear consequences. And much like Alice – with all that she’s done, travelling through Wonderland, there’s no doubt the King and Queen are upset. This might not apply to you directly, but perhaps this week discover what justice means to you specifically. It could be on a very small scale in terms of morals and beliefs – at what point do you draw the line of boundary in not agreeing with someone’s thoughts? Think about that this week.
The Wheel of Fortune card. As we know the Wheel of Fortune is a card that resembles “what goes up, must come down” and you might be feeling you’ve been going around a lot this past week and this coming week. What significant plans can you make this week to really put yourself on a high vs an unnecessary low? What dreams and wants do you have that you need to make happen? Much like Alice – we always know her to be kind and adventurous – but ultimately what is it she wants out of life? She’s chasing this White Rabbit through Wonderland, for what? This week could be a great week to make some concrete plans (at least being proactive and letting the rest happen on their own terms). Explore what you want next.
