Should I stay or should I go?

A sample reading using The Gill Tarot
by Elizabeth Josephine Gill
(U.S. Games Systems, Inc.)

Question: What should I do about my relationship with my husband? Should I stay or should I go?

Response to the Seeker: Only you can answer a question as important as this one. However, the tarot can assist you in looking at this situation and can give you helpful information with which to make this decision. A Tarot reading is like a snapshot of what your life looks like at the time of the reading. The cards can give you a picture of unseen influences, patterns of behavior, obstacles, and strengths. My goal as a Tarot reader is to allow you to take responsibility for your own decisions and actions, and to act according to your own conscience for the greater good of all concerned.

The Reading: Below are the positional definitions I used, the cards I drew into those positions, and my interpretations. I laid the cards out like this:     


The Gill Tarot
Position 1. This is how staying could affect you

ACE OF SWORDS (Air / Energy) -- If you stay, be prepared to embrace a new way of thinking and/or communicating. Aces represent new beginnings in Tarot, and the suit of Swords is the suit of  Air (thoughts, intellect, communication). Air is also associated with disharmony, tension, being overwhelmed or befuddled, and behaving in a manner that is either too harsh or too weak. The bottom line is: If you stay in this marriage, you have work to do.

The Gill Tarot
Position 2. This is how leaving could affect you

SIX OF DISCS (Earth / Well-Being) -- On this card we see six discs arranged around a light in the formation of a circle. There is a sense of contentment and comfort, particularly at an everyday, material or physical level (Discs). This card suggests that leaving is likely to give you this sense of well-being, at least at first. It may seem like “the easy way out.” However, the Six of Discs also advises us that our state of contentment cannot be guaranteed to last. The expression “This too shall pass” applies not only to times of stress or difficulty but to periods in our life where we feel we finally have things the way we want them. If you are thinking that leaving will solve all your problems, you may want to think again.

The Gill Tarot
Position 3. This is what you need to focus on within yourself in making this important decision

EMPEROR (Fire / Key 4) -- The Emperor is very strong in this spread, indicating the importance of focusing on The Emperor’s most positive qualities within yourself, such as conscious control, organization, vigilance, good judgment, and a willingness to come to grips with things in a bold, forthright manner. The element Fire is associated with passion, action, confidence, assertiveness, and making one’s way in the world – as well as struggles, victories, and defeats. No matter whether you decide to stay or leave, you will need to stand firmly on your own two feet, use your head, and meet whatever challenges arise with courage.


  1. I love the Gill Tarot! Found a really good used deck at a Half Price Books store about 5 or 6 years ago for $4. It's a great deck for thoughtful, contemplative readings. :-)

    1. It is a wonderful deck, I agree! Thank you for stopping by.
