16 Pregnancy and Fertility Tarot Card Combos

Posted in Divination | 243 comments

Before I start listing the pregnancy and fertility card combinations, I want to make it abundantly clear that you should never use the cards in place of a medical health care professional, nor do I recommend using the cards as a pregnancy test. I can assure you that you won’t get much joy from the cards that way since detachment from the outcome is necessary in order to accurately read the cards.

My reason for creating this list of tarot card combination interpretations is to help you get to know the cards better. Naturally, birth and pregnancies do show up in readings – as do miscarriages and abortions.

The knowledge shared with you in this post must be used with utmost discretion when reading for others. Always make it clear that your reading is not an alternative to pregnancy tests or proper medical check-ups. Never give a pregnant lady bad news or tell someone that they are unable to have children. EVER. This is for the same reason you never ever use the cards to diagnose a condition. You are not a doctor.

Do have fun experimenting with these interpretations by picking out the cards used (as you will see, many of them are repeated) and see if you can come up with other meaningful combinations that relate to pregnancy and fertility.

If you are looking for a Pregnancy Tarot Spread which covers all three trimesters, as well as conception, birth and sex of the baby, you will find one HERE.

  1. Fascinating reading! I’ve been getting a lot of these cards, however when I do a one card spread I get the star as the outcome of asking is right to go ahead with having a third child right now?
    Is the star asking something else of me?

    • Basically… ‘Do as you wish!’

      • Mmm, thought so, thank you!

  2. These comments lol x I’m cringing! Seriously did people just buy cards too pull & ask on here?

    I came here to get more out of my cards. For ideas of combos to program my cards to. Which is exactly what you gave so thankyou lovley! This is fab x

    Guys you should be aligning them with how you feel and giving each cards it’s own energy buy meditating and atturning to each of them. Yes it’s a massive task but I promise you will be so much more connected.

    & I’m sure she ment that if these cards came up in a general reading as a combo, rather than a 2 pull ‘am I.. arn’t i’ question.

    Again Thankyou Lisa :) xx

    • Haha, what can I say… other than well said and THANK YOU! Blessings x

  3. I did a reading asked if me & my boyfriend r ginna have a baby i did the celtic cross i got the chariot lovers the emperor devul fool the empress hermit death tower and star what does this reading mean

    • Hi Marcia, you need to provide your own interpretation for any spreads you share and then ask questions about an individual card or combination that you are stuck on. This is not a free reading service. Cheers

  4. I asked if I will get pregnant? I got ace of pentacles paat, present empress, and future 10 of cups. In pretty sure this is a yes. Is their ant further insight you could offer?

  5. Hi all. Been reading tarot awhile but hard to read for yourself. Did a three card spread aski ng if I am or would be pregnant soon. Got 6 swords pash 4 wands present emperor future and 2 of wands as a clarifying card. What do u think that mean? Thanks so much!

  6. Hi, I got the 10 of cups and the world. I’m not sure what that could mean?

    • What question did you ask of the cards? Which spread did you use and what are the positional meanings?

      • I asked the cards to show me two positive pregnancy cards if i will get pregnant soon. They were up right.

        • That’s an inconclusive answer but I would say you will have children… albeit not as soon as you might like. 10 of Cups is a card of family and children. The World is Saturn and could mean that your wish is delayed.

  7. HI

    I did a six card spread asking whether after 3 children (IVF) it was time to move on from babies. The spread clearly gave me the empress for position 2 (your wishes) haha so accurate. But the final outcome /answer was Strength which I see you have related to pregnancy but I was wondering if in this case it meant strength to move on away from wishing for more children.

    With the moon as support and the fool as a negative influence I am not sure . Any insight?

    • Yes, it can mean strength to move in a new direction. But it won’t happen until you change your wish to something else. That is the beast you are struggling with in the Strength card…

      • ps. The Fool doesn’t have a plan at all, that’s why he is showing as your weakness/negative influence

  8. I asked yesterday if I had gotten pregnant this week and I pulled out four cards. Which was the emperor, page of swords, the empress, and six of cups. Not sure what it means but I’ve never got the emperor or empress in the same reading.

  9. I ask if I was pregnant and I got six of wands…. then I asked confirmation and I got page of swords. What does this mean?

    • It means ‘Buy a pregnancy test’ If a pregnancy shows up in a reading, it is one thing but pregnancy tests are by far more accurate for correct diagnosis. Since this is a medical condition as well as something that would totally change your life, you need to use the right medical resources to have it confirmed.

      • I did a pregnancy test 5 days ago and it was negative but still no period. This is why I asked the cards. I plan on going to the doctors anyway ,but I am wondering what page of swords would mean as in terms of pregnancy.

        • Neither of those two cards are pregnancy indicators, so it would depend on how you read each of the cards as yes/no… However, I find that Swords showing up (other than as an indicator of personality) usually means ‘no.’

          • Thank you very much… of course still seeing a doctor! =) your site is very informative.

  10. Hi was doing a pregnancy reading also. Don’t have a bf yet. Did a love reading, it says I should meet someone in spring. So I did an annual and I had the sun in march but in Oct I had the empress card. So I did a pregnancy reading and the empress jump out of the card. Put it aside. So I laid 3 card the magician, can remember middle card but last card was the sun. Dunno if it is a sign or not. Help? Being trying to get better at my interpretation of the cards but I get block sometimes.

    • Go with your gut/first impression

  11. I was doing a monthly read for the first four months of 2016 for January I pulled the empress ace of cups an ace of wand please help with interpretation I feel like it is telling me that I will become or could become pregnant not sure

    • Yes, it could mean that.

  12. I asked if I would get pregnant sometime this year. The three card spread showed:
    1) The Star
    2) The Sun
    3) The Hanged Man
    I’m not sure how to interpret it….

    • If the Hanged Man is future/outcome, then I’d say you’ll have to wait a bit longer even though your own vitality levels (The Sun) are good at the moment.

  13. I just wanna say I love your website. I too am trying to conceive, I did the past present future, I asked if pregnancy was in my near future, I got 2 of wands, the magician, the 10 of cups, card 4 was a overview it was the lovers. Could you share any insight on this?

    • Hi Jenna, so glad you love the site. This is not a free reading site. If you are a student of the Tarot, I need YOUR reading for the question. Happy 2016!

      • I’m really just starting, and I have a hard time interpreting the cards because some seem so far off, but with the 10 of cups in thinking it could happen.

        • Congratulations on starting your Tarot journey! It’s fascinating and the more you learn you’ll want to know. Yes, the 10 of Cups is a good sign you’ll have the family you dream of :)

  14. Hello when asking if I will be blessed with a baby while doing the3 card tarot, I received past 4 of swords, present Queen of pentacles, and future the. Empress card. What is your insight on this ?

    • That’s a good sign you will be a mother. You are healthier now than in the past.

      • Thank u for your time

  15. Hi! I have a quick question for you regarding a card I pulled earlier today. My husband and I want to become pregnant again soon. I just recently lost a pregnancy.
    So for fun I did a spread asking about myself as a mother, my next pregnancy, what my child’s soul is like, what I need to learn, and finally how our relationship as mother/child will be. I’m confused now because the card for my child’s soul was The Devil card. I know it isn’t literally the devil, but what is the message here? Our relationship card was the Knight of Cups. Thanks for any light you can shine on this :)

    • Hi Rachel, it could be a Capricorn child or someone with strong Cappie energy in their chart.

      • Thanks so much. My initial reaction was maybe my future child’s soul will reincarnate with some addictions or vices that they will need to work out in this lifetime. I thought about the Capricorn aspect, but I didn’t want to dismiss the other deeper issues that may be there. I guess we will wait and see. Thanks for your reply, this blog has been exceptionally helpful to me in my journey of learning tarot and working on my intuition.

  16. What do u think about a 3 card spread past empress, present sun, future 7 of cups ?

    • The 7 of Cups in the future means thinking you’re pregnant when you’re not… the other two cards are about wishing for it…

      • Wow that’s deep. Thank you, yes I have been praying for it.

      • I also asked if pregnancy is in my future, I got past 8 of swords, present the tower, future 3 of wand’s. I cannot believe how accurate u are. Thanks

  17. I am so happy I found this! I love my cards and use them a lot but I find myself questioning the meanings sometimes. Just now I did a 3 card spread asking if I am pregnant with girl or boy.

    10 of rods
    7 of cups
    6 of swords

    I am not really sure what this could mean. This was the second spread I did because the first one I did I didn’t feel I was as focused. But I got

    8 of swords
    6 of cups
    8 of cups

    • Hi Crystal, that’s a pretty clear message from the soul of your unborn baby that it is of no consequence what gender they incarnate as. Focus more on getting to know their personality. It is probably an old soul who has been her as both genders before. I see this more and more… the next generation is transcending the gender paradigm. This is something to be aware of when you raise your child, so that you do not try to limit them based on their gender. Blessings

      • Thank you :)

  18. We are trying to conceive, have been unsuccessful. Recently I did the lotus tarot 6 card reading , the empress and Sun came up. Not sure if this could be a good sign.

    • It depends on positional meanings too, of course, but yes… that would be a good sign :) All the best!

  19. So informative! Thank you!

    • You’re very welcome!

  20. HI! Thank you for very insightful site. I did three card spread today asking about pregnancy and I got Ace of Wands, Sun and Moon. What does that mean? Is it possible that I could be pregnant?

    • Hi Jasy :) Please don’t use the Tarot as a pregnancy test – that is what those test kits you buy at the Pharmacy are for. All the best!

  21. I love this site! For pregnancy I recently got 5 of wands, 9 of pentacles, Queen of Pentacles and the Empress. I have been convinced I wanted to wait a few years before my husband and I started a family, however when he was home last month (he works away) I found myself having over whelming thoughts of being a mother and it’s all I can think about! I feel so strongly that it’s time to go down that path! What do you think my cards are saying? I don’t think I’m the best person to read then, I think they mean I’m pregnant already or soon to be!!! Here’s hoping :) :) :)

    • Hi Cassie, I don’t read on ‘Am I pregnant?’ That is what pregnancy tests are for. However, please consider that the 5 of Wands indicates a conflict of interest. Your clock may be ticking but you could be on your own. You need to talk with your husband.

  22. Whats a good tarot reading website that someone can recommend.. :)

    • Hahaha, that’s like walking into the best café in town and asking one of the customers if they have another café to recommend.

  23. For pregnancy recently i got the ace of cups and ace of pentacles so i concur :) lol

  24. I thought temperance indicated moderation and patience? Am I wrong?

    • Moderation, yes… Patience? No. That would be The Hanged Man.

      • Turns out you were right, no patience needed, am 4 weeks pregnant

  25. Currently trying to conceive 3rd child, just did a 6 card reading thinking about getting pregnant before end of the year, the cards I got were:
    The fool
    The world
    The high Priestess
    I’m wondering if there is any significance to pulling all major cards?
    I get the feeling that this is a positive sign, but temperance makes me think that it may not happen before end of year as it calls for patience

    • Yes, pulling all Majors indicates that events are very much fated. But I’m curious… Patience? I don’t see the Hanged Man here… so why?

  26. i did the celtic cross spread for mine because i like that spread to organize the cards better and i got ace of wands, queenof pentecles and page of cups also in the same section was queen of swords, how would you interpert this

    • In the same section? There are set positional meanings in the Celtic Cross… I don’t find it reads very well for combination meanings… so which position did you find the Queen of Swords in?

      • they were all together like the main card was ace of wands the challenhe was queen of pentecles and the queen of swords was what will help you and the page of cups was in whats happening in my current situation , the present

        • There is no ‘what will help you’ position int he CC… I’m sorry I can’t help with this.

          • Do you mean the south card? It’s supposed to be what you can work with and use.

  27. I did a three card spread. I’m trying to conceive. The last two cards were the 10 of cups (present) and the ace of cups (future).This means birth of a family member. That can be my baby right?

    • Yes! That’s a very clear and positive sign. :)

  28. I did a single card reading asking about the gender of my baby. I’m 10 weeks pregnant now. The card I got was temperance. Any idea if Thats a male or female card?

    • Congratulations and blessings on your pregnancy, Joanna! This made me smile because to me it’s a sign that this soul is not very interested what gender they incarnate as, as much as their soul’s mission. Temperance contains both Fire (masculine) and Water (feminine)… This is a rainbow child. It doesn’t necessarily mean they will be gay or transgender but they will have deep empathy for those who are because they have already transcended the gender paradigm due to being an old and wise soul.

  29. If the ace of wands means boy when it’s reversed does it mean girl

    • Hi Emily, I don’t read with reversals, so it’s up to you. Do you normally interpret reversals as the opposite/converse of the original meaning? This is something you need to know for yourself BEFORE you try reading with the cards. Blessings

  30. The Queen of Swords and The High Priestess indicate barren woman? Are you serious?! The Queen of Swords maybe, but The High Priestess? The High Priestess is associated with fertility (pomegranates and palms in the background are symbols of fertility) and the card is ruled by Moon which represents menstrual cycles, fertility and pregnancy – even in astrology.

    • Hi Jessica, The High Priestess is associated with feminine health and the reproductive system thanks to the lunar correspondence but not with conception, pregnancy and birth – the card for the latter would be the Empress (Venus). There is more to the High Priestess than her lunar correspondence. She is dressed in virginal white and seated IN FRONT OF of the pomegranates, showing that she is not embodying the mystery of conception but is in charge of the wisdom connected with it. The Empress, on the other hand, is WEARING the pomegranates, and as you know, is often depicted as pregnant. This is logical also from a numerological point of view. The 3 of the Empress has always been associated with conception – the 2 only with duality. So yes, the High Priestess can show things like the onset or ending of a woman’s fertile phase, as well as problems with the feminine reproductive system or painful periods etc… but usually not pregnancy, in my experience.

      • Just to add something. When I was pregnant, before I knew, I asked “What will the results of my pregnancy test be?” and pulled the High Priestess and the Sun. I believe the HP was indicating the 2 lines on the test that indicate a positive result.

        5 weeks later I started spotting and asked about the state of my body. I pulled the Empress with the Three of Swords as the shadow card. I miscarried a few hours later.

  31. I love this article! Personally, I associate The Empress, the Queen of Cups, and the Ace of Cups with fertility and pregnancy. Those cards have tremendous water energy about them. I don’t see The Empress as purely an earth card. There is always a river, waterfall, or some kind of body of water on that card. There is no fertility and life without water.

    • Yes, agreed! And that is why The Empress is the perfect fit for the second chakra :)

  32. I love this post! Could you please answer the following question: I asked what my potential was of getting pregnant next year (this year is not going to work out) and got the Sun! I then wanted to clarify the card and got the Tower. I tend to see the Tower as a overwhelming, dramatic change. Could you please give me your opinion on this Lisa, a reply would be greatly appreciated :)

    • Hi Ida, glad you love the post! :) How do you usually use a clarifier? Why did you feel you needed one? What would you tell someone else if you pulled the Tower as a clarifier? I don’t really have an opinion on your draw because I don’t read like that and would either pull one card for a quick yes/no answer or do a three card draw for the potential. There is nothing subjective about your interpretation – the Tower IS overwhelming and dramatic change. So not sure what to add here.

  33. Here is my opinion:
    Card representing pregnancy in the Major Arcana: Moon
    Card representing pregnancy in the Minor Arcana: Queen of Cups
    Both cards are associated with the zodiac sign of Cancer (and its ruling “planet”, the Moon).
    Cancer/Moon energy represents fertility, pregnancy, motherhood.

    • In the Golden system of correspondences, which I adhere to, The Moon is Pisces. The High Priestess corresponds with The Moon. There is a logical structure to the GD system which allows for full integration with Astrology. I find few personal preferences manage this feat.

      • Yeah, I know about the Golden Dawn astrology associations. However, I prefer listening to my own inner voice and intuition instead of following in someone else’s footsteps.

        There are a lot of disrepancies in the GD system anyway. The Emperor as Aries? He is more like a Capricorn. The Chariot as Cancer? The Chariot card has pure Aries energy. Also The World card is more Jupiter than Saturn. The Star is Venus. The Lovers has nothing to do with Gemini. It is more like Libra. Gemini is all about brain and intellect. Relationships (romantic or not) is ruled by Libra. And these were only a few examples.

        With that being said, I respect other people’s opinion, I just don’t agree with the GD system.

        • I imagine A.E. Waite would say that personal opininions do not matter any more for the occult sciences than they do for the natural sciences. It is one thing to read intuitively and get different aspects of the deep rich symbology of the arcana surface at different times and another completely to make up your mind to permanently view The Emperor as Capricorn. First of all, The Emperor is neither Aries nor Capricorn. It is much more complex than that. An archetype is an organising principle which, expressed through the Emperor gives us cardinal energy of Fire expressed through the number 4, Chesed and Heh, the fifth path of the Three of Life. Without allowing for this level of complexity, you would not only forfeit the structure afforded by the GD system but also layers upon layers of meaning that could potentially become available to you as you develop as a reader. But then it is not for everyone to want to devote a lifetime to occult study. The structure itself is not manmade – it is Divine Law and without it, we cannot do magick. I also imagine A.E. Waite would giggle and remind you that the imagery in his own deck and all its clones is based on the GD system of correspondences.

          As for my personal opininion… do follow your intuitive guidance and do whatever works for you. If the Law is indeed the Law, it will reveal itself to you eventually.

          • All I can say is “If everyone is thinking alike, then no one is thinking”. :-) All the best.

  34. My husband and I are trying to get pregnant and my first reading one week ago was ace of coins, ace of cups, and wheel of fortune reversed, I thought this was a positive reading, this week I received the star reversed, the empress, and justice reversed and I am unsure what to make of it. Do you have any insight for me? Thanks very much!!

    • Also this reading was not asking if I am pregnant but if pregnancy was in our foreseeable future as the doctors are thinking my chances of becoming pregnant are low. Thank you very much.

      • Hi Dani, I don’t read with reversals. For the first draw (assuming I did use reversals) I would say ‘Yes, but the timing is not right.’ For the second draw, ‘Yes, but you need to balance your female hormones first.’

  35. Hi lisa, im a bit of a novice in tarot altho i feel im quite insightful when doing my readings done your 13 card tarot pregnancy spread and i seem to have interparated it with no issues altho i cant seem to make out meanings of 7th 8th and 9th cards in 3rd trimester section 10 of swords, 9 of wands and queen of cups im guessing ill be having complications in 3rd trimester and need to rest more as i will have health problems and the baby will begin to feel the heavy burden towards the end or maybe im overlooking it and indicates the worst? as 12th birth and 13th sex cards were the star and page of cups which i interperated as a positive end result but in essence the opposite of the sun card and now im blocked on interperating it clearly could you share your thoughts? x

    • Ah, this must be your first baby… those are all normal cards for the third trimester… the emotional and easily bloated queen of cups… feeling like she’s had enough but worrying about the giving birth at the same time… 9 of Wands + 10 of Swords… Nothing to worry about my dear! :)

  36. HI I did a reading on 4/26/2015 via Celtic cross the question I asked was Will I get Pregnant withing the month w/ a boy under hidden factors I got Ace of cups clarified with the lovers and wheel of fortune the outcome was temperance I have been jotting down every tarot spread that I do May 12th What does this Month have in store for me next move The lovers How I see my self Wheel of Fortune and outcome The Empress clarified by 8 of wands( now or later). May 24th (today) current situation Strength helping or hindering 3 of cups best I can achieve Ace of Swords Hidden factors (this is what worries me) Knight of wands clarified the tower,outcome was hermit clarified the star. My Question is is all the readings I do a sign that I will have twins and when I go to the ob of Thurs will the pregnancy test come back Positive ( keep in mind I have had pregnancy symptoms since April 30th just had mirena removed April 29th thankyou

    • Let us know what the test showed! I don’t use the Tarot cards as a pregnancy test :)

  37. Tonight I did a three card spread asking what biological gender my baby is and in the back of my mind I told myself if I saw three of cups it would signify twins (I’ve been having nagging irrational thoughts that I’m pregnant with twins). My first card was The Sun, the second The High Priestess and the third Ace of Pentacles. I see this a strong female indicator and a healthy pregnancy, but I also had this nagging feeling to split the deck and the card that was revealed was none other than the three of cups. lol What do you think?

    • Tricky, since I would have a Gemini card for twins… so I guess you’ll have to trust your own intuition.

  38. Hi Lisa, maybe you could help me to interpret my spread a little better, I did a yes/no.

    1.Two of swords
    2.Ten of pentacles
    3. Ace of wands
    4. Page of cups
    5. Six of cups
    6. The tower
    7. The sun
    8. Knight of swords
    9. Seven of wands
    10. Queen of cups

    Thank You

    • Please read through the posting instructions again carefully. I do not have time to interpret whole spreads. I’m not sure what method you used for answering a yes/no question with 10 cards. I can only help with a specific question about one or two cards. You say ‘help me to interpret my spread a little better…’ yet do not provide your interpretation…?

  39. Hi Lisa! First, thank you for this page! I don’t know if you still reply to questions but here I go:

    First, I must say that I’m very new to tarot. Before I ovulated this month, I asked if this would be my month I did it twice in a row:

    First: Death reversed, ace of pentacle, queen of cup
    Second: The tower, ace of cup, queen of pentacle (all up)

    I saw this as a positive indication, however, it might indicate that some changes might be required in order for me to become pregnant… maybe?

    So, yesterday, I asked if I was pregnant (I ovulated 9 days ago) and got this:

    two of cup, ace of wand and three of sword, all facing up…

    Is this good or bad? Does the three of sword means loss? I had two chemical pregnancies already so I’m thinking I could be having another.

    • The 3 of Swords invariably means ‘not what you hoped for’… sorry! The first draw was the correct one… never second-guess and do another draw soon after the original draw! Death is a ‘no’.

  40. Hi Lisa, I did a yes or no. I asked if i would become pregnant this month and I got the 10 of cups…. I’m new to this. Would this be considered a yes? … thank you for your time

    • This is the only card you pulled… it was upright… then yes, it might be a possibility… but I find it really difficult to comment on a reading I wasn’t present at. I don’t know if you have asked the question of the cards umpteen times before and what the energy in/around you was at the time of asking.

      • Thank you Lisa for responding :) It was my the first time I asked a question, It wasn’t a deck that belonged to me. It was someone else’s and I was just testing it out since i’m new to this. I was just calm as can be and didn’t have a yes or no expectation, just tried to be receptive of whatever the answer was. Yes it was upright :)

  41. Hi Lisa, I did a yes or no. I asked if i would become pregnant this month and I got the 10 of cups…. I’m new to this. Would this be considered a yes? … thank you for your time :)

  42. What time frame did you set for this reading? Did you ask if you ‘ever’ will become pregnant? The Sun as the outcome is obviously a good sign but there are lots of influences speaking for a need to make sure there is less stress in your life in order to conceive.

    • Yes I did within a month. I did ask if I will become pregnant. Is it a good sign?

      • It is really hard to say for definite, mainly because of the central two cards of the cross. I think the cards indicate outside help to improve your female health and stress levels rather than an actual pregnancy… but do report back in and let us know!

  43. Hi Lisa,

    I asked if I was having twins and Five of Wands, The Emperor, and Knight of Cups came out. Is that a yes or no?
    Thank you <3

    • I would take that as a ‘no’ based on these three cards alone, but it depends on other parameters set for the reading… what spread or yes/no technique you used. Are you pregnant now?

      • Yes I am pregnant now and just asked if I was having multiples with a 3 card reading. Should I be doing less cards for a yes or no answer?

        • Not necessarily but you need to know how to interpret a three card spread for yes/no answers. Other than card combinations (like the ones above) you can work with Elemental Dignities. The trick on being able to do yes/no readings is to find the method that works best for you and then stick to it. Here are some other techniques that I have found to work quite well: http://lovedovetarot.com/2012/07/05/yesno-love-tarot-techniques/

          Blessings and hope all goes well with your pregnancy!

  44. I got king of pentacles, ace of cups and the fool, I think this is a yes for me, I had a 3 month time frame in mind, but is there a better spread I can use other than 3 cards?

      • Thank you for this, I have tried this spread but I think it’s a bit beyond my ability to interpret, there are cards that I would assioate with fertility and pregnancy the empress, ace of cups 10 of cups 3 cups, but I also have 3 sword cards which I understand isn’t a good sign! Maybe best to leave this until I’m a bit better practiced at reading the cards

          • Just found out I’m 4 weeks pregnant, so it would seem I was right about my first spread :) thank you for Ur help :) are there anyways to predict the gender?

          • Congratulations! Yes, you can use either the Pages or the Aces for this: Wands and Swords are boys – Cups and Pentacles are girls. Or you can use a more traditional method of asking a pendulum (or just a ring on a piece of string) held over your stomach.

        • Can u do a reading for me see if I’ll be pregnant soon

  45. Hi, Lisa. As a novice to Tarot, I am a novice to Tarot and your site has been quite helpful for me. I was reading through the comments to see if someone had already asked this question, but it doesn’t looks as they have, so I’ll ask.

    Have you ever known the 5 of cups to indicate a miscarriage? I am newly pregnant and in several readings I’ve done for myself, the reading will begin with a pregnancy card (i.e. Empress, Sun, Ace of Pentacles, etc.) and always end with the 5 of cups in the future position. I’ve had others do readings for me online – people I’ve never even met – and without telling them my direct question, they get the same result – 5 of cups in the near future.

    I used the yes/no system on here for clarification (Aces vs 10s for 22-card pull), and, without fail, an Ace always falls when I ask if I’ll miscarry or if that is the message of the 5 of cups. I’m pretty sad about it but I figure at least I can prepare.

    In addition to the 5 of cups question, I wanted to know, in general, if my Tarot cards are reflecting the energy I’m emitting (because I’m now obsessed and believe this will happen now…waiting on it, actually, now the cards will continue to show me that), or if they are showing me the ‘truth’ so I might proceed accordingly. Getting your insight into this would be helpful not just for me to come to terms with these readings but to also keep in mind in the future for when I am reading for others, especially if I’m asking the same question over and over again.

    Thanks for your time.


    • Hi Kindel, I don’t think it’s good for you to keep reading on this over and over again. Trust your medical practitioner’s advice on this instead. If you keep asking the same question over and over, the cards will invariably give misinformation, so there is really no way I can comment since you admit to having done just that. Relax and enjoy your pregnancy and do talk to your doctor or midwife about any concerns you have. It’s their job to put your mind at ease.

      • I agree with you, Lisa. Honestly, I think I will need to retire my deck for a while, at least until I am over this ‘phase’ and my mind settles. Thank you for your feedback:)

        I am still interested in knowing, though, not just on my question but for any situation, actually, is it possible for the Tarot to only reflect what a person is feeling (especially if their energy is obsessive) or if the Tarot shows objectively what will probably unfold for the querent based on what is already happening at the time of reading?

        For example, if there is a person who fears she will never get in a loving relationship, and her belief about that is nearly solid, could an entire reading be so muddled by her energy, it just reflects back to her, in its totality, what she already believes (that she’ll never fall in love), or would it reflect her mindset as an obstacle in addition to how she can overcome it? The latter reading offers objective guidance, despite the obsessive energy of the querent, while the former only reflects the querent’s energy…

        I hope that makes sense:-/

        • Yes, because the future is not set in stone. What you think today is what you live tomorrow… the cards reflect where you’re at now and the future is a trajectory based on past and present thoughts and experiences. Change your thoughts, change your future. Equally, change your thoughts and these changes will be reflected in the cards if they have reach a point of stability.

    • Hi Kindel, I am in the same boat here, my readings are pretty miserable too. I am just wondering how did your pregnancy go? Im currently 5 weeks & my first on only reading was…awful. x Thanks for your time.

  46. I understand. Thanks for the confirmation, though. I’ll be taking a pregnancy test in a few days. I’ll give you the update.

  47. Hi Lisa,

    I have this strange pressure in my right ovary. I went to the doctor and got an ultrasound but the technician didn’t see anything abnormal. I have some symptoms of pregnancy too (nausea, tender breast, weight gain) but just had a period. I did a three card spread to see if I could gain some insight into what is really happening with my body but I’m at a loss.

    1. Ten of Pentacles
    2. The Chariot
    3. Three of Pentacles.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated!


    • Karina, it could be a slight hormonal imbalance (and with the presence of a Virgo energy card, I wouldn’t rule out food intolerance) – other than that, I can’t really say… that’s for your doc to diagnose.

      • Thanks Lisa! I was hoping the cards would provide more insight but I guess not.

        • Hi, Lisa. I’m not sure if you mind all of these questions. Hopefully, not. I did a three card spread today concerning a pregnancy test that I will be taking in a few days. I used the Thoth deck. The cards I pulled were; Ace of cups, 9 of cups, and 8 of wands. I really have a hard time reading my own cards because I feel I tend to project my own wants and desires and mix up what’s actually there. I pulled one more card for clarification and it was 6 of wands which in Thoth is Victory. How am I to interpret this? It sounds positive to me, but I don’t know. I was hoping to be pregnant.

          • Yes, it does seem positive. Although, for the record, I’m against using the Tarot as a pregnancy test.

  48. Hello Lisa, I’m new to Tarot card reading… I did a 13 card spread asking it about pregnancy… Just wondering what does these cards mean??

    [1.] Four of Cups
    [2.] Three of Wands
    [3.] Two of Pentacles
    [4.] Judgement
    [5.] The Wheel of Fortune
    [6.] The Empress
    [7.] Eight of Pentacles
    [8.] Four of Wands
    [9.] The Chariot
    [10.] Five of Wands
    [11.] Six of Swords
    [12.] Ace of Wands
    [13.] The Lovers

    • Sorry, I don’t have time to interpret whole spreads. If you have no clue of the meanings yourself, I suggest starting with learning the card meanings properly and building your confidence by starting with smaller spreads. This is quite an advanced spread!

  49. Asked am I pregnant and for present an future got the Empress beside star what would that interpret?

  50. Hi there ,
    I was just wondering what your opinion was regarding these two cards combined , the sun as position what’s coming into ones life and the world as outcome position regarding pregnancy ?

    Kind regards


  51. I stumbled across this site while doing further research into tarot. The reason I clicked on the link was due to my desire to end a burning question of which tarot cards tell of pregnancy!
    I was told a year ago, by two separate psychics, that I would conceive at the end of June or beginning of August. Having been sick around the 5th so my BC pill didn’t get absorbed and severe pregnancy symptoms for the past two weeks, I decided to consult the cards.
    Because it’s too early for a home pregnancy test (plus I have ovarian syndrome which makes home tests inconclusive) and I won’t hear back from the blood work for another week or so, I am going bananas!
    After reading your blog, I am rather interested in what you might think regarding this layout:

    1) Seven of Wands
    2) Four of Wands
    3) Pages of cups (inverted)
    4) Death (inverted)
    5) Page of Swords
    6) The Moon (inverted)
    7) Nine of cups (inverted)
    8) The Sun
    9) Five of Cups
    10) Justice

    And because the cards were imploring me, I pulled another and it was The Empress. I used the Celtic Cross Spread. Another card that keeps popping up is The Lovers! Any insight into this would be welcomed. Thank you :)

    • I’m sorry but I don’t read with reversals so I can’t interpret your spread for you. http://lovedovetarot.com/2014/08/15/top-5-reasons-why-i-dont-read-with-reversals/

      Also, people pull cards in different orders for the CC so I can’t be sure which cards go where. As a general rule of thumb I can’t interpret a spread I can’t actually see.

      My feeling is that you still need to fine tune your body in order to be able to receive but take that with a grain of salt for the reasons above.

  52. Hi there ,
    Your site is so informative , I was wondering as a question related to future conception/. Pregnancy the sun was in ” what’s about to come into your life”

    Next to the sun ” the out come” the world was a good sign?

    The other cards where dominated by penticals king and queen and the ace of wands .. The ace of wands but I was so focused on the sun and world I can’t remember .

    Many thanks

    • It is so hard to answer this without knowing what the positional meanings for the other cards were.

  53. Hi Lisa,
    for pregnancy what does the empress, the lovers and nine of air mean?

    • Any reading with a Swords card as the final card would be a negative in terms of pregnancy.

      • Hi Lisa, Thank you for your response. One more question what would seven of fire and ten of water together mean for pregnancy?

        • Are these two cards part of a bigger spread? Are there positional meanings to take into consideration?

          • No. I simply asked when will I be pregnant and those 2 popped out.

          • I’d say 7 months until conception, now that I know the question you asked.

  54. Lisa, Today I did a four spread going left right top and bottom. I asked the cards am I pregnant and for my first card (left) I got the moon, 2nd card (right) I got the wheel of fortune, the 3rd card (top ) I got the hierophant and for my 4th card (bottom) I got the star. What does this mean?

  55. Greetings ms lisa,

    Today I did a typical layout. .. being that im a novice, my intentions are just to build my intuition .. while i had no motives today i started out with a 4 card layout.. now, I didn’t ask cards anything specific. The cards that showed up for me was the Knight of pentacles, 7 swords, High priestess and the sun.. I studied the cards individually and decided to look online as well. I noticed the sun can have a literal meaning for child(children) which intrigued me so i decided to reshuffle and ask cards am i pregnant. Now that i think about it ; it may have been better to ask “will i soon be pregnant” before i move on… how would you interpret the 5 cars above t? What does it mean? Im still a not so sure. I would greatly appreciate your response

    anywho, I then drew five cards going left to right. Me being a novice , I started out with the intentions of drawing 3 but my intuition had me draw 5. The cards I received were (left to right) The moon, hanged man (upside down) , strength, the empress and the emporer. May you interpret these to the best of your knowledge? I just found your site today while surfing for meanings and i quite thankful for you and your generous help. Blessings. Looking forward to your response .


    • I apologize I meant how would you interpret the 4 cards above which are the Knight of pentacles,7 of swords , High priestess and the sun(left to right)

      • I wouldn’t even know where to begin without a question – the question is pretty much everything for a free form layout!

        • Okay, well down in my second paragraph in my previous comment I mentioned I asked the cards “am i pregnant” and i pulled five cards , just left to right. I pulled (left to right) the moon, the hanged man upside down, strength, the empress and the emporer. .would this be a yes or no to my answer?

          The cards were in order from left to right.
          ex: 1 2 3 4 5

    • Just to update, you were right. !no pregnancy.

  56. Hi Lisa!
    I need to wait for next week before I can use a pregnancy test but I could not help drawing some cards: Am I pregnant?
    3 cards, no positions. Universal tarot, no rv: 2 of Swords *8 of Swords *4 of pents.
    At 1st glance, It does not seem to be a yes but I thought that the 2 of Swords could mean my uncertainty, then 8 of Swords can indicate feeling trapped in my own body and the 4 of pents indicates weight gain.
    I drew a 4th card to clarify and get the Sun!

    But I was not satisfied with this reading so a week later, I used my Lo Scarabeo deck asking the same:
    Knight of cups * 6 of wands *queen of wands
    Again, nothing indicating a pregnancy for sure but the knight of cups can represent the father, 6 of wands the”victory” of getting pregnant and the queen of wands can be among all the Queens a representation of a mother.
    What do you think?

    Many thanks .

    • Hi Laurence, I’d be very surprised if you are. I’d see the two Swords cards in the initial three card reading as a firm no that would need no further clarification. Blessings

  57. I was way off. That makes so much sense! Thank you!

  58. Hi Lisa. I recently did a three card spread in reference to my health. I can’t seem to lose weight no matter how I eat or exercise. I have been wondering if it would be insane to have another baby since I am 47 years old, but I admit it is a secret wish…like last chance kind of thing. However that wasn’t the question. It was just how is my health, thinking maybe I had a thyroid problem or something. I got Ace of Wands, Ace of cups, and Empress. Can you clarify what this means. I saw pregnancy, but really have no clue. I feel stupid for even admitting this.

    • I’m guessing a need to balance your (female) hormones rather than pregnancy since your focus was health

  59. Hi Lisa-
    I was hoping to get your perspective on a couple cards I drew while doing the “13 Card Pregnancy Tarot” spread I found on your site.
    The 12th and 13th cards left me curious.
    12th: XII The Hanged Man
    13th: VI The Lovers
    Is this saying that I am going to have a long labor and/or possibly late birth… with twins??
    Thank you for your time and the work that you do.

    • Yes that is a possibility – also because of Neptune’s influence with the Hanged Man it is possible that you will be needing drugs even if you planned for a natural birth.

  60. I have been having symptoms of pregnancy but not sure yet having taken a test yet but did a 3 card spread since my question is direct. Am I pregnant?

    First card – Strength card
    Second card – Page of cups which might indicate pregnancy especially following the strength card.
    Third card – 4 of pentacles which I can’t tell if it good or bad. Really I wouldn’t think this had anything to do with pregnancy but maybe the guy I have been dating. This personality when it comes to money. Not sure how this last card might tie into the other two.

    • The meaning of the third card depends entirely on the focus of your question. If you did read about the pregnancy, I would see it as a good sign of stability and safe delivery.

  61. Hi Lisa,

    I did a 3 card reading regarding a future pregnancy. My question was “What is my potential for getting pregnant over the next 6 months?”

    The answer was- Past: The Empress, Present: Knight of Swords and Future: Strength

    My husband and I just recently had a child and he’s been wanting to have another. So we agreed to try for a 6 month period, the thing is I’m not ready for another child, and its sure not the right time either. I’m not taking any birth control at this time and my period is more than late. I did a pregnancy test a week ago and its still negative, I’m crossing my fingers there’s no pregnancy. At least not for a while. I will much appreciate if you can help me interpret this draw.

    Thank you 😉

    • Knight of Swords is a could indication that you didn’t fall pregnant at the time and that your period was late due to stress. Sorry for the very late reply and curious to find out if you did fall pregnant later on which Strength would indicate you might have.

  62. Hi Lisa,
    My husband and me are doing an Ivf cycle this month and will be doin the pregnancy test next week. We have been tryin since 2 years for a baby now and have started on the Ivf route a year ago. Have had 2 unsuccessful attempts and now this is the third one. My question I asked was – am I pregnant ? I did a 3 card spread. Got the sun, strength and king of swords. What do you think this means? Also I keep getting the king of swords card?? Am very curious what this card would mean?
    Your insight would be much appreciated :)

    • Hi Deepti, Swords cards are never good in pregnancy and fertility readings. Continued medical help may be necessary but with the other two cards being so sunny, I feel that issue is more to do with timing than any irreversible medical issues/problems. In other words, baby will arrive when baby is good and ready! Feel free to share your results after the pregnancy test as it may be helpful to others.

      • Hi Lisa,
        Thanks a lot for your reply:) yes will keep you posted next week. Thanks

  63. I am very new to learning tarot… i am wanting to read my own cards about if i will have another pregnancy… funny question do i pic out those cards u mentioned and see what combo i get or do i use the whole deck

    • These are combinations that may show up in a reading used doing a full deck, Melissa.

      • I recently tried to read my own cards trying the celtic cross…concerning if i was likely to become pregnant in the next 12 months…
        1. Ace of swords
        2. Five of cups
        3. Three of pentacles
        4. The magician
        5. The empress
        6. Three of cups
        7. Five of wands
        8. The chariot
        9. Ace of cups
        10. Strength
        Btw i am only a beginner i have no idea to how accurate my very vivid interpretation of this reading is… but can you tell me if i am some what on the right interpretation? ?
        I read this as…the beginning of a dream that i feel i may regret but i still havent decided on a path because of battles i am currently fighting with my partner over but there is a posabilty of the birth of another child that i would have to be strong for…. am i getting anywhere close to understanding??

  64. Hi,
    I love this site and this post in particular! I do not have much experience in Tarot, but got a beautiful pack for Christmas and I adore it! I just shuffle it a lot lol.
    I thought I’d give a ‘will we have children’ spread a go. We are TTC and Dr reports show us both to be very healthy and above average results.
    I found this one, it’s called the House of Fertility Spread:

    1. Emotional/psychological aspects for the mother
    2. Physical/health aspects for the mother
    3. Emotional/psychological aspects for the father
    4. Physical/health aspects for the father
    5. Will of the unborn child
    6. Likely outcome for a foreseeable future, a time frame of 12mths

    1. 3 of swords
    2. the empress
    3. 5 cups
    4. Queen of swords reversed
    5. 6 pentacles
    6. 5 pentacles

    From what I understand, the Empress is saying great things about fertility and the reversed Queen of swords would be the opposite of being barron. So our physical aspects of being able to have children are there but the 6 of pentacles and 5 of pentacles aren’t so positive? The 5 of pentacles showing a bit of a dismal future, with a positive future after the dismal times ahead. So maybe all in all it is saying that we are going to be trying for some time yet…?

    • Angelique, Thanks for sharing this spread – it’s not one I’ve come across before and I see how it could be quite useful. I don’t read with reversals any longer but when I did, I never read them as the opposite of the upright meaning (if you read up on it, I think you’ll find that most Tarotists don’t). Thus the reversed Queen of Swords does not represent the opposite of barrenness – I actually see it as your partner being under some kind of stress which is affecting his ‘delivery’ as it were… I think the message here is to look at how you can help each other feel supported (5 of Pentacles) during the period of trying to conceive.

      I have googled this spread to try to find out who created it but I haven’t come across the source. Do you know who it is? I would like to post a sample reading with this spread, using the Tarot and additional Lenormand cards which could shed light on environmental factors and elaborate further on the possibility of conceiving within the next 12 months (I don’t believe looking further into the future than that).

      As I no longer do free spread interpretations on this site, I want everyone who is reading this to know that I made an exception as this is a form of energy exchange.

      Also, please note that I do not read on pregnancy (or death) as one of my professional reading services for ethical reasons. Having done so in the past, I did find it entirely possible and my readings were accurate. However, accuracy alone is not enough to warrant an ethical green light in these matters. I consider pregnancy questions an area best handled by medical professionals.

      The spreads and card combinations posted on this site are for entertainment purposes only. Any real concerns should always be handled by your doctor.

        • I’m sorry… what is this about? Wondering about what?

          • This was regarding your reply to Angelique’s post from January 22, 2013 about the house of fertility spread and where I found it on the Internet. I just wanted to share where I saw it in case you wanted to know.

          • Aha, I see. Thank you very much for clarifying, Nicole! Happy New Year!

  65. Hi Lisa, I did a reading about starting my my new job, but my wish for a pregnancy showed up in the cards. Tell me if you agree. The 9 of pentacles is a small concern. I’m ready for whatever this year :)

    I drew king of pentacles, 3 cups, 5 swords, queen pentacles, empress, ace cups, 9 swords, world

    • Did you mean the 9 of Swords because I don’t see a 9 of Pentacles here? Could possibly indicate pregnancy.

      • Yes, I meant 9 of swords. Sorry about that. The 9 of swords through me off…. Thinking trouble with the pregnancy…. Or other issue.

        • Yes, some kind of trouble definitely since the 5 of Swords is present too… but hard to say without seeing the whole spread. Also, I’d suggest thinking about how these cards actually could apply to the work situation you asked about too.

          • Yes, since I’m starting a new job, I definitely won’t have maternity leave. So probably some worry regarding not having my position guaranteed and issue with a female administrator is coming to mind. Maybe pregnancy will be ok, but issue with work surrounding it. Thanks. I really appreciate your feedback.

  66. i dont understand how dis work

  67. I thought so,thank you lisa!!

    • Hey lisa!!,just wanted to update you that id gone to the doctor’s a few days ago,just found out im 8 weeks pregnant,just wated to say thank you for all your help;)

      • Oh wow! Congratulations! I’m so so happy for you!!! :) Blessings to you and beanie <3

      • Thank you so much!!!,again thank you for everything;)

  68. And I also forgot to also mention that lovers also came up,i did the mystic faerie deck any help would be appericated thank you!!!

      • Empress was the outcome. Ill give you the whole reading in my layout got qween of swords,nine of pentcales,strength,four of wands,the sun,the lovers,nine of wands,six of cups,nine of cups,eigjt of penticals,seven of penticals,my out come which was my outcome the empress,lot of them had two mice in them.

        • The Empress really is the card you want to see as the outcome in a pregnancy reading. I’m guessing congratulations will be in order soon.

  69. Hello, im new to working on tarot readings,well I did the celtic cross,what came up for me are empress,the sun,strength,ace of pentacls,i was wondering if this means a pregnancy/or twins?

  70. I am having trouble getting any answer on if I would ever conceive again. While asking if I would be able to become pregnant again, I do not get any cards that relates to the ones you have listed. Is this a sign that I wont ever get pregnant again? This is an important question for me and it will determine a fate I will have to persue but I have been putting it off for the sake of hope!! Please help me, maybe I am not reading the cards correctly.

    • Please see your doctor about this. I don’t do free readings and I don’t read professionally about medical issues for ethical reasons. Blessings

  71. Hello,

    Does these card combinations must be together. Today I did 12 month spread and seond round I asked a question. I have a lot of these cards in here. First is the sun, second Ace of cups and third ace of wands. In the 4th (Home) is the empress and 5th (Children) is Queen of swords etc. To I have to read them seperatly or these cards must have together. I am little bit confused these Pregnancy and Fertility Tarot Card Combos.

    Thank you if you have time to give me little answer,

    • It sounds like you mean the 12 Houses rather than the 12 month spread? The first four cards show you preparing for pregnancy… It’s clearly what you desire more than anything. However, the barren Queen of Swords in the House of Children (Leo energies) is not a good sign.

      • Thank you Lisa,

        I dont think that I am barren Queen of swords, because in 8th is cups of 10, 9th is Page of cups and 11th is the Emperor. I think my beginning of next 12 month maybe is not good start, but in the end everything is ok.

        • While I would agree that the 10 of Cups in the 8th House is a good sign, I don’t feel the other two have anything to do with pregnancy and/or childbirth. The 9th House is the house of Sagittarian energies (travel, higher education, philosophy etc) – if anything this could signify an interest in esoteric studies. The Emperor in the House of groups, friendships and humanitarian work has nothing to do with pregnancy either.

          I guess we will have to wait and see. I wish you all the best!

  72. Hi Lisa , firstly I’d like to say how much I’ve enjoyed reading your page. Thank you! I sometimes find it hard interpreting the cards or linking the Story together.
    I asked If it was my calling to give birth to another child. (three card layout)
    1. 10 of cups- my interpretation of this is a stable happy family where children are welcomed
    2. Temperance- my interpretation- patience and perseverance
    3. 9 of pentacles- my interpretation – a confident, successful woman

    This is where I get stuck??
    Thank you Melissa

    • Temperance here is not about patience and perseverance but about balancing family life (10 of Cups) with your work (9 of Pentacles)… Since the final card is work-related rather than a card of pregnancy, the advice I would take is that it would be better to not get pregnant again in terms of having enough energy for everything in your life. Please read up on the Temperance card – it’s one of the main healing cards… a card of soul alchemy… I rarely take it to mean patience as it corresponds to fiery Sagittarius and is titled ‘Art’ in the Thoth Tarot.

      • Thank you so much for this advise Lisa, I really appreciate it and I will read up on Temperance more. You make the interpretation so much easier than what I do with it. :-)

  73. Hi, I got the ace of wands next to judgement, also the star next to the lovers. Does this indicate pregnancy/

      • Hi Lisa, thx for responding! I used the Celtic cross. The cards came in the following order:
        1) 4 of cups
        2) the magician
        3) 3of swords (reversed)
        4) king of swords
        5) the star
        6) the lovers
        7) 10 of pentacles
        8) 6 of cups
        9) ace of wands
        10) judgement

        I did this spread for my brother. His ex girlfriend called him saying that she lied about an abortion she said she got 5 months ago. He wants to know if that’s true. He doesn’t know whether he should believe she’s pregnant or not.


        • I appreciate your honesty – I don’t do third party readings and won’t comment on here for the same reason.

      • K thx anyway :)

  74. Thank you to all for sharing your tarot readings. I know this forum is specific to being pregnant, but I searched the empress and the death card reversed as they were jumping cards as I shuffled regarding my relationship. I was asking the cards about where my boyfriend was after a disagreement we had today…..both of us have children and I had my tubes tied over 15 yrs ago (I’m 48, he’s 50) he can still father a child…I’m very curious on what your feelings are on my jumping cards. These cards were after I did a relationship spread.
    In my 10 card layout I had majority of wands 4/10, with other Major cards. 2nd card Recent Past= The Emporer reversed, Present = The Fool upright, 6th card Quandrants Attitude= The Moon reversed, 10th card Final Result=Wheel of Fortune. Thank you !

  75. Hi Lisa,
    Was wondering if you could please help/ My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for a while and the Ace of Cups keeps showing up in every reading whether it is a month to month spread (1st card) or the horseshoe spread. It even falls out of the pack when I’m shuffling and if I split the deck it has been the top card. Does this have any relevance to a conception and birth at all? Many thanks in advance.

      • That’s really helpful! Thanks very much for all your help :) So pleased to have found such a wonderful and informative site! Well done and thanks for all your efforts.

  76. beautiful posts as always. thank you.

  77. hi lisa,will me and my wife is trying for a baby ,can you read for me.

  78. I recently got a reading with.the strength card and the wheel of fortune what does that mean.usually pregnancy wise id like to know if my husband and could potentialy gey pregnany soon like with in a year and if the combination of those cards are good

    • What kind of reading/spread and in which positions did those two cards show up? Those two on their own would certainly be a positive sign!

      • Not sure whay reading spread only because I dont read cards I got them read but they where facing up.

        • Oh, I wish you had told me it was a reading someone else had done for you – I prefer to not comment on those. But since you brought it up… what did your reader say about it?

          • It was a friend she doea tarot cards but I felt that she was very vague more explaining the cards than giving me an actual reading but when I saw those two together i.decided to.research it because ive been trying to see if im possibly going to gey pregnant.

          • Sounds like you need a do-over, to read specifically on that matter :)

  79. Hi not sure if you can help but I asked the tarot weather I was pregnant or sick in some way, I picked one card initially and it was the fool reversed. I then picked two more for clarification and got the 5 of wands and the tower reversed. Any idea what this is telling me? Thank you

    • I’d wait for the pregnancy test – the cards are not ideal for this type of usage, I find. The Tower reversed is traditionally a sign of impotence in a male though and could also signify male infertility, so if you turn out to not be pregnant, perhaps it would be worth at looking at the sperm count.

  80. Hi there i done a 12 month spread today and 1st card was tTHE SUN then 7 cards later i got ACE OF SWORDS and the 9th card i got THE LOVERS then 10th card 3 OF SWORDS then DEATH how would you interpent this??? Thank you for your insight xox

    • Before I say anything, I need to know what your own interpretation and understanding is.

      • I feel that i maybe pregnant right now THE SUN due in 9 months with twins THE LOVERS. The ACE OF SWORDS could indicate maybe early labor 7 months in to the pregnancy. Frustration surrounding this. 3 OF SWORDS could indicate able to take baby’s home but frustrations still around the situation maybe because of the pre mature labor. And baby’s been in hospital born very little. DEATH to me means new beginnings end of that situation and things starting to look up feeling good and the situation has improved. I have been having the EMPRESS falling out of the deck this month and has been my first card in my spreads i have been doing. THE LOVERS have been there in the spreads as well as ACE OF WANDS.

        • Is this the 12 Houses spread for the next 12 months or do you have a different system? – If it’s the 12 Houses system, it would matter a great deal what card falls in the 4th (Home) and 5th (Children) Houses.

      • Sorry and i think that the sex of babys could be split one boy one girl. I have been having dreams about this and this is what i seen lol

      • I layed out 12 cards starting from this month. 4th card PAGE OF PENTACLES and 5th PAGE OF CUPS. :)

        • You still haven’t told me if this is the 12 Houses Zodiac spread or not! It’s only meaningful in that sense if you worked that particular spread. I get the feeling you just laid the cards out month by month… Is that right?

      • Yes that is right sorry. That was a spread recommend in my book that came with it. :-

        • No need to apologise. Less confusion now. Were there any reversals or do you not work with reversals? I would have to say that the Death and 3 of Swords so close together toward the end of the year to me would indicate that you will not have children by the end of it. But I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you – it’s your reading and I’m not knocking your interpretation. Hospitalisation for recovery after a difficult start would be the 4 and not the 3 of Swords in my book.

    • thank you for your help :)

  81. Hi Lisa, back in March I did a 12 month spread. For October I got the Sun, November Page of Cups and December The Empress. These seem positive for me for a pregnancy. What do you think? Im new at this :)

    • Yes, it certainly seems so. The Sun card is a clue if you are on track for that, as it indicates good health and lots of energy. It is now October… so how are you feeling?

      • Even better now after that reply – Thank you! Yes I have been struggling with fertility for a very long time, with a few early miscarriages in between so i decided to take the last 8 months off to improve my health using traditional chinese medicine and naturopathy. And I do feel great at the moment!! My husband and I decided to try again this month as the time seems right. I guess I will know by the start of November. Thank you again!!

  82. Yay!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Lisa!!!

  83. Hello Lisa,

    I did a 3 card reading asking: Is it my calling to be a mother? I received Empress, Ace of Cups, and Nine of Cups. This looks positive to me, but I am very new at this and wanted to confirm.

    Thank you, Hailey

    • That is indeed a very positive answer! You will be a mother and you will enjoy being one! :) Congratulations!

  84. Hi Celeste :) Thanks for commenting. Yes, that makes sense if you read with reversals and interpret them as a blockage of some kind. I never read the Thoth deck with reversals myself so barrenness would be indicated by surrounding cards. The Princess of Disks is very much a card of pregnancy in the Thoth Tarot!

  85. Hi Lisa,

    I asked the cards my potential for getting pregnant over the next 6 months. I received the Lovers and the Two of Wands. I interpreted this as twin boys. What do you think?

    Thank you! Brittney

    • Hi Brittney, How did you lay the cards out and what other cards did you get? I don’t see a pregnancy as much as a partnership with those two cards alone. Blessings, Lisa

      • Drats! I was really hoping business wouldn’t get in the way … thank you for the insight! Brittney

  86. For me the reversed Princess of Disks in Thoth signals a barren womb or a woman having difficulty with fertility.

    I totally agree with you about the Sun and the Lovers signalling a multiple birth. I called this one myself a couple weeks ago with a client.
