You’ve been feeling a little off lately. Your emotions are all over the place, or your body feels different. Could you be pregnant? I know it’s something that’s probably crossing your mind. But before you go grab a test, lay out your tarot cards and see if any of these show up.
The Tower – Sudden, Unexpected Changes
When The Tower card shows up in a reading about pregnancy, expect the unexpected. This card signifies sudden upheaval and unforeseen events that shake up the status quo. If you asked your tarot cards specifically about pregnancy, The Tower is a “yes” card.
If you’ve been trying unsuccessfully to get pregnant, The Tower could mean a surprise conception is right around the corner. Similarly, if you’ve been actively preventing pregnancy, an unintended pregnancy may come as a shock.
The Tower serves as a reminder that no matter how much we plan and prepare, life has a way of throwing curveballs when we least expect them. This unexpected blessing, though challenging, could end up being one of the best things that’s ever happened to you. The Tower is a big sign of an unexpected pregnancy in tarot, so it’s definitely worth paying attention to if that card shows up when asking about pregnancy.
The Empress – Abundant Fertility And Motherhood
If The Empress turns up in your reading, get ready for some unexpected baby news! As the mother archetype of the tarot, The Empress represents fertility, pregnancy, and childbirth.
She signifies creativity and abundance in all areas of life, especially when it comes to family and relationships. Pulling The Empress means that pregnancy, motherhood, or nurturing others will likely play an important role in your life right now or in the near future.
If you’ve been wanting to start or expand your family, The Empress is a very positive omen that now is a fertile time. She reminds us of the miracle of life and all the beauty it has to offer.
The Lovers – Passion And Fresh Starts
The Lovers card represents passion, relationships and new beginnings. If this card shows up in a reading about pregnancy or your current lover, it’s a sign that a new passionate encounter or rekindling of an existing relationship has led to the creation of a new life. The Lovers suggest that this pregnancy, while unplanned, is a product of a joyful union and loving experience between partners.
While the pregnancy may come as a surprise, the Lovers indicate that this new baby will be a source of happiness, bonding, and renewal for the couple. The relationship is blessed by this turn of events, and the child will be a physical embodiment of the love and passion the couple shares.
The Sun – Happiness, Vitality, And Joyful News
The Sun card represents happiness, joy, and vitality. If this card shows up in a pregnancy or love spread, it’s a very positive sign you’ll be welcoming a little bundle of joy in about 9 months! The sun gives life, and its appearance suggests new life is on the horizon.
This card can also indicate the pregnancy will be an easy, uncomplicated one and that you’ll feel energetic and revitalized during this time. The sun’s rays symbolize the creative power to give life, so combined with the fertility and nurturing aspects of the Empress or pregnancy-related cards like the Page of Cups, the Sun is a clear message of conception and new beginnings.
An unexpected pregnancy is often a shock, but the Sun suggests this surprise will ultimately fill you with delight, contentment, and optimism about the future, much like the sun on a cold or rainy day.
The Star – Hope And New Beginnings
The Star card represents renewal, inspiration, and hope. In love or health reading, it can signify an unplanned pregnancy. The woman in the card is naked, pouring water into a lake and onto the land, symbolizing new life.
If you’ve been trying to get pregnant, the Star is a welcome sign that your efforts will soon pay off. But if a baby isn’t in your plans just yet, use protection and be extremely careful. The Star card indicates life is about to spring forth, whether you’re ready for it or not.
On the positive side, the Star brings optimism, serenity, and a sense of purpose. Even if the news of a baby comes as a shock, know that this new life, though unanticipated, will bring you joy. The universe has a way of giving us exactly what we need, precisely when we need it.
Judgment – Major Life Changes
The Judgment card represents a major life change or awakening in your life. In pregnancy or love readings, it indicates you may be facing an unexpected pregnancy that will significantly impact your life path.
This unplanned pregnancy comes as a surprise but also signals a rebirth of some kind. Though unanticipated, the new life growing inside you will transform your world in meaningful ways. The Judgment card calls you to accept this unforeseen turn of events with an open heart and open arms. A child is a blessing, though not always planned, so embrace this opportunity for growth and renewal.
Your life is taking an unexpected detour, but have faith that this surprise pregnancy has meaning and purpose. Have courage in the face of this unplanned change – your life is forever changed for the better.
Whether you’re doing a reading for yourself or a friend who’s wondering what’s next, keep an eye out for The Empress, The Tower, The Sun, The Star, The Lovers, and Judgement. If several of them show up in a spread, it may be time to take a pregnancy test!
