3-Card Reading for F.G.

                     

F.G.  has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me insight into __________.”  F.G. has not told me what (s)he has put into the blank space.  The first three cards are the “heart” of the reading and are read as a unit.  Then, the fourth card is drawn and read as a summary or clarifier.  Since two out of the first three as well as the summary card are pentacles, it is safe to say that this is a mini-reading focused on values, priorities, and resources.  Also, there are two sevens, so we are talking here about the secret, the sacred, and the unknown.

The spotlight has been on the queen of pentacles, a card that reaffirms the value of what F.G. has to offer.  All the queens represent the doubt(s) and hesitation that take place just before the full manifestation of mastery (the kings) occur.  This one is no different.  The pentacle is so large that it takes two hands to support it, and its time is NOW.  When this card appears, it urges the seeker to stop sitting still in contemplation of the value (s)he brings to the situation and to take that pentacle out into the world that needs it.  F.G., the hesitation has run its course; it’s time for you to get out there and be all you can.

The spotlight is now on the Chariot, a member of the Major Arcana, that calls for a change in what F.G. is used to relying on to get her/him from one place to another.  This card says the old way is no longer working, and it’s time to abandon it and find a new vehicle.  This may mean a new environment, a new job, a new title, joining a new group, etc.  There is usually a fair amount of frustration that the seeker experiences when this card appears, and both of the first two cards are urging leaving a comfort zone.  Because this is one of the Major Arcana, it speaks to F.G.’s soul’s purpose for this lifetime, one or more of the challenges (s)he wishes to overcome this time around.

The spotlight is moving toward the seven of pentacles, nostalgia for the way things used to be.  This is completely consistent with the first two cards.  Yes, F.G., you’ve been successful before, and there is no reason whatsoever to question your ability to make the issue at you feet grow every bit as well.  By pouring your energy into past glories and accomplishments, you risk stepping into regret and resentment and stay stuck.  BE HERE NOW.  You can do it.

The summary card is the six of pentacles, the card of giving.  Its appearance as the summary for this mini-reading reading means that while it is all well and good to be guided by what you can give to others, it is absolutely essential that you take care of yourself first.  It is only when your own needs are met that you can give joyously of the overflow to others.  Trying to give before this condition is met activates resentment and taints what should be a gift, freely given without strings attached.

3-Card Reading for J.S.

                             

J.S.  has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me insight into __________.”  J.S. has not told me what (s)he has put into the blank space.  The first three cards are the “heart” of the reading and are read as a unit.  Then, the fourth card is drawn and read as a summary or clarifier.  Since all of the first three are members of the Major Arcana, this is most definitely a reading about J.S.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime.  Also, when we include the summary card, there are two threes in this mini-reading, so there is a focus on expression, creative manifestation, and joy.

The spotlight has been on the Empress, unlimited creativity.  J.S.  is known as a fun and creative person who constantly puts things together in new and different ways.  (S)he has always had this ability and tends to take it for granted, assuming everyone can see and do the same, but it is a unique ability. This card carries with it a good sense of humor.  (S)he doesn’t always stick around to nurture and develop the ideas (s)he comes up with because (s)he is busy giving birth to so many new ones, so (s)he can sometimes appear a little wild and unpredictable.

The spotlight is now on the Hermit, a card of wisdom and higher understanding.  J.S. has made it to the top of the mountain, and (s)he has done it carrying the light so that if anyone wishes to follow in her/his footsteps, (s)he has shown them the way.  The only drawback to this card is that it is sometimes lonely at the top because (s)he marches to a different drummer.

The spotlight is moving toward the Devil, a card of service and healing that reminds the seeker not to give away her/his power to anyone or anything else.  The figures chained at the feet of the devil are complicit in their subjugation; they can lift the chains around their necks at any time and free themselves.  The purpose of the card is make the seeker aware that (s)he has given away power so that it becomes a conscious choice whether to continue to allow this or not.

The summary card is the three of swords, the heartache card.  This card appears when the old hurts of the past are standing in the way of future progress.  We know these are old wounds because the heart has absorbed much of the hurt, and the ends of the swords are blunted.  It shows up in a reading when it is time to withdraw each of these swords, gently and carefully, and allow the heart to be free of them.  Taken as a whole, this reading shows J.S. the path to freedom so that her/his gifts of creativity and joy that are reinforced with wisdom and higher understanding can be released and used for the greater good.

3-Card Reading for F.J.

                          

F.J. has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me insight into __________.”  F.J. has not told me what (s)he has put into the blank space.  The first three cards are the “heart” of the reading and are read as a unit.  Then, the fourth card is drawn and read as a summary or clarifier.  Since there are two fours in the first group of three, this mini-reading focuses on foundation, building, resources, and what F.J. needs in order to feel safe.  If we include the summary card, we also have two members of the Major Arcana in this reading as well.  This indicates a connection with F.J.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime and indicates that the circumstances that prompted the request for a reading are tied to patterns of challenges that F.J. has faced before and which (s)he wishes to master.

The spotlight has been on the four of pentacles, a card that shows F.J. has spent a lot of time and effort figuring out where (s)he stands, how (s)he feels, and what (s)he thinks.  The only problem here is that all those values and priorities lie outside her/himself, and they have required all her/his energy to maintain.  This puts her/him in a very precarious position.  Until (s)he learns that (S)HE is valuable and can always rely on her/himself, the winds of change can become a huge threat to knock her/him off that perch.

The spotlight is now on the Emperor, the gift of wisdom.  Wisdom is intelligence combined with compassion, and F.J. has earned this gift.  Others recognize and value her/his opinion, and (s)he, like the Biblical King Solomon, has a way of letting the truth speak for itself.  When two women each claimed to be the mother of a particular infant, Solomon decreed, “Cut the child in half,” and the true mother instantly gave up her claim so that her child would live.

The spotlight is moving toward the ten of wands, the need for discernment.  F.J. is multi-talented; however, trying to present all those skills and talents at one time is an awkward and overwhelming burden that is an accident waiting to happen.  The advice of the card is to pick one or two of these wands and bundle the rest so all of them accompany the seeker, and (s)he can see where (s)he is going, moving gracefully along the path.  There will be opportunities to integrate some of the others once the next destination has been reached.

The summary card is the High Priestess, the gift of Knowledge.   When someone asks for a reading, (s)he is looking for answers.  This card appears to tell her/him that the answers are already within.  This is strong confirmation of the message in the first card in the reading; the answers are not “out there” somewhere.  F.J. must quiet her/his mind and put her/himself in a quiet, steady, balanced place so the (s)he can access the information (s)he needs.  Guidance from within is in the best and highest interests here.

3-Card Reading for O.V.

                         

O.V. has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me insight into __________.”  O.V. has not told me what (s)he has put into the blank space.  The first three cards are the “heart” of the reading and are read as a unit.  Then, the fourth card is drawn and read as a summary or clarifier. It is only when we include the summary card that we have two-or-more of any suit, number, or member of the Major Arcana.   Taken as a whole, this mini-reading contains two swords, which means there is a focus here on overcoming conflict.  Also, the presence of one member of the Major Arcana indicates there is some connection to O.V.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime.

The spotlight has been on the Hanged Man, one of the timing cards in the tarot deck.  O.V. has recently undergone a “time out,”  where it has felt like nothing is happening and (s)he has been temporarily removed from the ebb and flow of life.  This has been a purposeful re-adjustment of her/his perspective.  Clearly, (s)he is not in crisis or pain, and once the wisdom of the new way of seeing things has been completed, (s)he will curl upward, release the foot that has been tethered, and continue the journey.  This card appears when it is time for the seeker to learn from her/his “hang-ups.”

The spotlight is now on the seven of swords, a useful follow-up to the first card.  By disarming the enemy and removing potential weapons, the chances for future conflict are effectively limited.  This is accomplished by figuring out what must be done immediately, what can wait until later, and what (even though, by definition, is part of the conflict) can be ignored.

The spotlight is moving toward the four of wands, building on one’s skills and talents.  A celebration is in progress, and the central figures are moving out of a protected environment to embellish their skills and talents out in the world.  This is a card of encouragement and reassurance that the skills and talents are good enough, strong enough, and alive enough to serve as a foundation.

The summary card is the six of swords that shows O.V. attempting to be of service and healing in a conflict situation, moving matters from the rough waters to the smooth.  The message of the card is, “Don’t bear down on the points of conflict, or you will sink the boat.”  Keep it light.  Slow and steady gets it done.  There is a strong suggestion to be part of the solution and not contribute in any way to the conflict.  When taken as a whole, this mini-reading emphasizes self-empowerment and self-determination in handling and overcoming conflict as the next logical steps for O.V..

3-Card Reading for T.W.

                           

T.W.  has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me insight into __________.” T.W. has not told me what (s)he has put into the blank space.  The first three cards are the “heart” of the reading and are read as a unit.  Then, the fourth card is drawn and read as a summary or clarifier. It is only when we include the summary card that we have two-or-more of any suit, number or member of the Major Arcana.  The fact that this mini-reading includes two pentacles means that the focus is on values, priorities, and resources.  Also, the presence of a member of the Major Arcana means there is some connection to T.W.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime.

The spotlight has been on the three of pentacles, working with others as part of a larger effort.  When this card appears, it means that the seeker would be well-served by not going it alone but by becoming part of a group effort.  This does not in any way diminish the integrity or the value of the seeker’s contribution; rather, it suggests that the best and highest purpose is served when the seeker combines her/his high-quality work with that of others as part of a bigger project.  That way, the responsibility and the glory are shared.

The spotlight is  now on Strength, a card of alignment, attunement, harmony, and manifestation.  This card frequently appears when the seeker is trying to move too quickly before all the parts are in place.  It is imperative that T.W. raise her/his vibration to align with that of the desired result in order for it to manifest.  Energy can only flow unimpeded when all the components are in harmony with each other.

The spotlight is moving toward the ace of wands, a triumph  of taking back the power to lead one’s own life.  This card implies that in the past T.W. gave away her/his power to other people and/or things and allowed them to make the rules and determine what was acceptable and would be rewarded.  Now  it is time for T.W. to rely on her/his internal focus of motivation and reward.

The summary card is the two of pentacles, the “yes, but” card.  As long as T.W. perceives her/his situation as involving two mutually exclusive choices, (s)he will be stuck in the exhausting dance of having to choose between them or remain stuck.  It is only when (s)he is able to expand her/his reality to include both that (s)he can be at peace and in control and able to continue along the path.  The suggested method for achieving this is to replace the word “but” with the word “and.”  For example, “I like my job, AND I’d like to earn more money.”

3-Card Reading for F.W.

                         

F.W.  has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me insight into __________.” F.W. has not told me what (s)he has put into the blank space.  The first three cards are the “heart” of the reading and are read as a unit.  Then, the fourth card is drawn and read as a summary or clarifier.  In this mini-reading, two out of the first three cards are both members of the Major Arcana and threes (21=2+1=3).  If we include the summary card, there are also two fours (Queens=13=1+3=4), so we definitely have a reading that focuses on F.W.’s expression of her/his soul’s agenda and the foundation of resources upon which (s)he has to build.

The spotlight has been on the Empress, a card of unlimited creativity.  This is a gift that F.W. has had all her/his life and which (s)he probably takes for granted.  Here lies the ability to put things together in new and different ways, and a robust sense of humor usually accompanies these efforts.

The spotlight is now on the queen of swords, the butterfly queen, a symbol of metamorphosis.  This is very likely the basis for the request for a reading.  Like the caterpillar, F.W.’s life was somewhat predictable and sure until (s)he went into the cocoon.  Now (s)he finds her/himself questioning, “Who am I?  What’s happening? and Why?”  This is crazy-making.  When this card appears, it means that the transition is more than halfway finished, the sun will come out, and F.W. will emerge a butterfly.  Hang in there, F.W..

The spotlight is moving toward the World, also known as the Graduation Card.  How appropriate at this time of year!  There you are, F.W., with a diploma in each hand, having done the work, met the criteria, and ready for the next logical step.  You’ve got what it takes; now, you’ve got to decide where you want to take it.  You must become your own manager and decide where your next “gig” is going to be.

The summary card is the four of cups, ignoring and/or being unaware of an opportunity that is being offered.  The figure in the card sits with her/his hands crossed over the heart; (s)he doesn’t want to get hurt again, but passing up this opportunity would be a mistake.  It seems like this entire reading is a reassurance that F.W. is ready and able to take her/his next logical step higher.  Not taking advantage of what is being offered means remaining stuck, and all the cards, but especially the queen of swords, suggest that we are not talking about the same person who may have been hurt in the past.  F.W., you are being asked to stay alert and aware of an opportunity that will soon present itself and allow you to expand your reality.  Good luck!

3-Card Reading for H.F.

                              

H.F. has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me insight into __________.” H.F. has not told me what (s)he has put into the blank space.  The first three cards are the “heart” of the reading and are read as a unit.  Then, the fourth card is drawn and read as a summary or clarifier.  In this mini-reading, two out of the first three cards are sevens (16=1+6=7).  Seven is the number of the secret, the sacred, solitude, insight, and seeking answers, so having two of them here implies a focus on a plan for the future. Also, when we include the summary card, we have two pentacles, so there is an additional focus on values, priorities, and resources.

The spotlight has been on the ten of pentacles, a card of discernment.  You are being asked, H.F. to choose who you want to be, what role you will play, what perspective you wish to represent in this situation that you have asked about.  In other words, what are you going to bring to the table?  The choices range all the way from limiting yourself to the safe, the sure, and the practical all the way up to and including the arena of other realms and realities.  There are no wrong choices; however, your choice here will determine the voice with which you speak, the image you project, and the effectiveness of your participation.

The spotlight is now on the seven of cups, the Wish Card.  You have earned the right to have whatever you want; now, you must decide what that is.  Again, there are a wide range of choices.  Also, nowhere is it written that these are mutually exclusive or that you are limited to a single pick.  The only mistake in this situation would be to go into overwhelm and make no choice.

The spotlight is moving toward the Tower, a sudden unexpected  event that will knock down all you’ve built up so far and make you start over.  This usually manifests as an “Aha” moment that brings clarity.  It will knock you off your feet, but you will land safely.

The summary card is the nine of pentacles, the wisdom and higher understanding of what is appropriate and correct.  Even though you are tempted by the situation to just take the hood off the falcon and let it fly, the position you hold in your work and/or community environment makes that inadvisable.  There are expectations from others and from yourself of “acceptable” behaviors.  This is why you must, on a regular basis, put yourself in environments that allow you to safely “let it all hang out,” where you can receive what you need and want for your own fulfillment.

Does this make sense?  I hope it was helpful.  For more information about using tarot cards for insight and guidance, please see                                                 http://www.tarotforalltime.com                                                                              and consider purchasing the book Tarot for All Time, available in paperback, e-book, and downloadable PDF format.  Thank you.
