Tarot Cards that Indicate a Delay

Today I want to discuss Tarot cards that would indicate a delay.   Tarot cards have multiple meanings and often in context with other cards the meanings can change context.   Today I want to discuss a certain group of cards that can have an element of delay in them.   If you see multiple of these cards the stronger the indication of a delay.

  • Judgement – Reversed

    •  you may be allowing fear and self-doubt to hold you back from making the decisions necessary to move forward in a positive direction
  • Eight of Wands – Reversed

    • Tends to mean now, today or tomorrow reversed brings the idea that it will be longer
    • This card shown in reverse can be frustrating but know things will come around — eventually
  • Four of Cups

    • Just look at the card with the young man staring at three cups while the Ace is being handed to him.  The length of the delay is in the querent’s hands if they would just look up from the missed opportunity.
  • Two of Swords

    • Something is being missed, and it will cause delays.   Take the time to look carefully at the situation.
    • Maybe a delayed start, or now is not the time, or it might indicate that you’re on the wrong path.
  • Seven of Pentacles

    • Slow and steady wins the race, and if you want results that will last for the long-term, you’re going to have to wait it out.
  • Chariot – Reversed

    • This is usually indicative of someone else causing the delay.
  • Three of Wands – Reversed

    • Indicative that you may need to realign your plans, what you are waiting for most likely is not going to happen.
  • Hanged Man

    • This card is an opportunity to see things from a different perspective.  It reminds you to have patience and not force things.   Everything comes in its own time.
  • Four of Swords

    • Where many cards may indicate a delay from exterior sources, this one suggest that a delay from the sitter may be warranted.  Look at the card and the peaceful and relaxed man.   There is a positive in waiting.
  • Ace of Wands – Reversed

    • This card usually indicates a great idea having great difficulty getting off the ground.   It is time to reassess what is important and change your plans accordingly.
  • Page of Swords

    • If you are waiting on news, this card can indicate that it may be delayed

Trust Yourself

Remember the cards have many layers of meanings.   One card alone does not mean this to be true.   It takes time to understand Tarot Cards and their meanings.   Trust your intuition when using Tarot.

They can only show the energy present.  You should always seek out proper medical advice from the professionals.
