A Brief History
Among your curious collection you've found a thin, black envelope. The crest sealing it shut has the image of a skull—is this a warning, or an invitation? As you break the seal to take a peak inside you notice the air go still. The light in the room seems to flicker. From behind you there comes the feeling that you're no longer the only one in the room.
Quick! Grab the candle, give it a light. White candles are revered for keeping the spirit world at bay—letting only pure souls speak while divining.
The satchel of crystals should be kept close, their energy pulses as you tip-toe into the otherworld.
Thought to drive out any ill-wish or evil spirit, lighting the bundle of sage and letting it douse to just a gentle stream of smoke which you waft around the room to cleanse the space ( tip: when using sage for a full home cleansing, always start from the back and work your way forward, towards the front door of your home. Make sure to get every doorway, closet, nook and cranny. Extinguish your sage outside your front door, making sure to let any ill-spirit or wish outside where it will stay )
Keep your skeleton key close, the door to the other side may be locked and this will guide you through this magical realm.

Sometimes referred to as "Coins", these pertain to things in the material and physical world. Often Pentacles are mistaken as only symbols of wealth and money matters. But in truth they speak of success and prosperity on all levels. This includes money and career success, but also family, body, and health matters. It’s typically an indicator that something in your material world needs attention. This can be positive (such as a successful business transaction or a large inheritance) or negative (such as health troubles or obstacles in the way of your success). This suit also represents your personal values -- the things you love, are attracted to, and collect around yourself. The theme of prosperity is not limited to only a financial experience. Even the poorest person can be enriched and increased by the experience of a golden moment, contact with goodness, or beauty -- all parts of the Pentacles suit.

Remember, only you can decide if these cards truly divine your fate. A wrong turn, a chance encounter, a happy find, all of these can change your trajectory. Tarot cards read things as they are and as they CAN be, not as they WILL be. If you don't like your fate, change it. Reflect on your reading and see what you can embrace or what you can work on.
