This week in the ongoing saga of Tarot 4 Tyson… 

Tarot 4 Tyson for the week beginning 07/22/2013


  1. The Past – Death
  2. The Present – Three of Pentacles (reversed)
  3. The Future – Two of Cups (reversed)
  4. The Outcome- The Devil (reversed)

I think you’ll be alright….


Ok, fine. I was trying to be optimistic.

This week’s spread is actually not very positive.  It’s full of death (endings), pettiness, weakness, folly, misunderstanding, etc.  it’s bad.  Trust me.

We start off with the Death card, which we saw the other week so this may have something to do with that.  Death, as we discussed, is not necessarily death, but can also mean a recent ending of some kind.  The following reversed cards reveal issues with finances (2), issues with a relationship (3) and then a betrayal (4).  Like I said, not good.

The Three of Pentacles shows a craftsman at work who has been interrupted by two other people.  This could represent an interruption at work, a poor job being done by yourself or someone else, or an interruption in your cash flow.  The reversed Two of Cups is also not good.  If this card were upright then this would depict a union, a joining of love, or the formation of a relationship.  Since it’s reversed what we have is the opposite, that being a souring of a relationship or perhaps a union or bad relationship forming (possibly a pact?)  The final card being of The Devil in reverse is an indication of heavy deceit, corruption, blindness, serious self-denial, self-illusion, and deception.  Yea… See?  Not pretty.  So, good luck Dr. Tyson because this week you’ll need it! Cheers?

Those of us not familiar with the arcane of tarot shall require a better explanation of what these cards mean…

Si, mucho better. What are your feelings about some relationship between Death and Father Time in representation? I agree this drawing does not appear to offer much in the way of optimism.
