3-Card Reading for F.C.

                           

F.C. 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.C. 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 cards are threes, this is most certainly a reading about F.C.’s expression, the way her/his energy comes out and surrounds her/him, setting up a point of attraction by way of an identity.

The spotlight has been on the Knight of Swords, scattering one’s energies.  F.C., this is who you have been recently.  In response to a perceived threat, you have ridden off at top speed in all directions at once, trying to cover all the bases, and taking on the responsibility of handling the situation alone.  You will soon exhaust yourself, feel ineffective, and perhaps even sink into regret and remorse for not living up to anyone’s expectations, especially your own.  This card recommends that you wait a minute before throwing your whole self into a response, evaluate the situation and your own involvement in it from a calm and wise perspective, and plan some strategy for dealing with it.

The spotlight is now on the Empress, unlimited creativity. You possess the gift of being able to put things together in new and different ways.  Given the fact that this card follows the knight of swords, it certainly seems that you have a multitude of choices as to how to handle the situation that you asked about in this reading.  Believe in yourself as someone who has many ways to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem.

The spotlight is moving toward the Knight of Pentacles, one who has chosen to allow the light of her/his values to guide her/him as (s)he carries out the role of being a knight, and who now wonders, “Is this as good as it gets?”  The answer is a resounding, “NO!”  There is much more to the journey, and you, F.C., are being told this.  The situation you asked about in your quest for insight is merely a temporary stop along the journey.  Keep going.

The summary card is the Fool, a leap of faith.  Yes, F.C., the next logical step on your journey is to step off the cliff.  The universe has compiled all the supportive elements for the next phase of your journey, and you alone can trigger them into action by taking that first step.  Trust yourself and do it.  Once you step off the edge, the sleeves of your garment turn into wings, and you fly.  Good luck and blessings on your chosen path.

3-Card Reading for A.E.

                           

A.E. 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 __________.”  A.E. 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 pentacles in the first group of three, it is safe to say that this mini-reading focuses on A.E.’s values and priorities, her/his gifts and resources, and what (s)he needs in order to feel safe.  If we include the summary card, we also have two tens and two wands that indicate this reading is also about discernment and A.E.’s skills and talents.

The spotlight has been on using discernment to choose which perspective  A.E. should adopt in this situation.  Is it best to stick to the safe, sure, practical view of the young man pictured or use the position of the young woman who protects the child and sees the old man and the floating pentacles, or should A.E. be like the old man who is in touch with the animal kingdom and sees the scene with the young couple, included in the atmosphere of the pentacles?  What lens serves best here?  These are free choices; there is no right or wrong; the lens chosen will definitely color the experience.

The spotlight is now on the Queen of Pentacles, who holds a very large pentacle on her lap as she sits on her throne.  When this card shows up in a reading, it means the time for contemplation is over and done; it is time to get up off the throne and take what you have to offer out into the world.  The world needs what you have to give, A.E.; it is of great value.

The spotlight is moving toward the six of wands, the lesson of the good leader.  The picture on this card shows the celebration of a victory, and you, A.E., are riding the horse.  It is important to realize that the triumph came about because of a group effort, and every once in a while, you must get down and let someone else ride.  A good leader promotes and celebrates the accomplishments of the rest of the team.

The summary card is the ten of wands, another call for discernment.  You are multi-talented, A.E., and in this situation, the fact that you can do so many different things and do them all well feels more like a burden than a gift.  Please select no more than two of your skills and talents to  present before you and bundle the rest under your arm, so you can see where you’re going and proceed at a reasonable pace.  The rest of your skills and talents will be available to you once you reach your goal.

3-Card Reading for A.G.

                         

A.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 __________.”  A.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 there are two fours in the first group of three (13=1+3=4), this mini-reading centers on foundation, form, building, and what A.G. needs in order to feel safe.  If we include the summary card, there are also two members of the Major Arcana, so there is a strong connection to A.G.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime.

The spotlight has been on the four of swords, the tendency to withdraw from conflict.  The conflict itself is depicted in the stained glass window in the upper left corner of the card.  You are stuck in the perceived conflict between giving and receiving, and you usually look down on receivers and label them “takers.”  This not only denies that one cannot exist without the other, but it means you have abdicated your power and allowed outside factors and opinions to rule your life.  This keeps you stuck.

The spotlight is now on Death, which does not mean you are about to die.  The message of the card is to abandon the FORM that no longer serves its purpose and embrace the dawning of a new day, shown on the right hand side of the card.  As a friend of mine says, “Letting go is easy; it’s trying to hold on that hurts.”  The old way has outlived its usefulness, and continuing to use it while expecting different results is the classic definition of insanity.  It’s time to move on.

The spotlight is moving toward the two of wands, another choice.  You have more going for you than you realize, A.G., and it’s time to pick up those skills and talents that are already yours and put them to work, letting go of the safe, the sure, and the practical.  Do you see how this card supports the first two in the reading?

The summary card is the Hierophant, sometimes called the High Priest.  Someone in this position has access to information from and about the higher realms; people frequently come to the Hierophant for advice.  This is you, A.G., and your intuition is strong; however, in an effort to be of service and healing, you sometimes tell too much.  Keep relying on your intuition, and it will get even stronger, but guard your words so that they may be a blessing to any and all who come to you.

3-Card Reading for D.M.

                      

D.M. 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 __________.”  D.M. 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 cups in the first group of three, this mini-reading focuses on feelings, emotions, relationships, and psychic abilities.

The spotlight has been on the queen of cups, repressed and/or blocked emotions.  This queen is in touch with her feelings, but there are a group of them, often considered negative and destructive, that she keeps covered in the cup she holds.  She is hesitant and fearful of expressing them or letting them out.  Keeping them covered has consumed all her energy and focus, and she has been sitting there worried about what to do with them for so long that her foot is turning blue.  She is so stuck.  This card appears when it is time to lift the lid, see what’s there, remove, resolve, disempower it/them, and move on.  My favorite way of dealing with this situation is to use a combination of Bradley Nelson’s Emotion Code and Theta Healing (check the internet for both); there are many other valid methods that can be used here as well.  It’s time to move on, D.M..

The spotlight is now on the three of cups, one of the “timing” cards in the tarot deck, that tells you it’s time to celebrate.  This card often appears in a reading for someone who tends to adhere to high standards and who glosses over smaller achievements.  It is imperative that you stop beating up on yourself, D.M., for what you feel you still need to accomplish and take some time to celebrate how far you’ve come already.  Sometimes this requires looking back over the entire year and comparing where you were at this time last year to where you are now.  You have reason to celebrate, and it is important to include others in this acknowledgement because they will then be open to including you in their own celebrations instead of seeing you as judgmental and holding perfectionist tendencies.

The spotlight is moving toward the seven of wands, addressing your being overly defensive.  This is a knee-jerk reaction and has become your default behavior.  Please take a breath and ask yourself, “Am I being attacked?”  You will find the answer is “no” far more often than “yes.”  Once you become aware of the truth of the situation, you can stop using your skills and talents as a weapon or a shield and invite others to join you at the elevated level where you operate.

The summary card is the nine of pentacles, another piece of evidence that you are operating at an advanced level.  Even though there are times when you would like nothing better than to take the hood off the falcon and let it fly, hunting and attacking smaller and weaker creatures, you cannot behave with abandon because of the position you hold.  You are responsible (able to respond) and must set a good example.  You cannot afford to get “down and dirty” in the situation you have asked about at the beginning of this reading; therefore, you must put yourself (on a regular basis) in other environments where you are free to “let it all out.”  Can you see how well this relates to the cards that came before it?

3-Card Reading for S.W.

                            

S.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 __________.”  S.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.  Since there are no two-of-a-kind suits, numbers, or members of the Major Arcana, this seems to be a general or broad-based reading rather than focusing on one particular area of S.W.’s life.

The spotlight has been on the ace of wands, the triumph of taking back the power to lead one’s life.  Wands represent skills and talents, and the aces are trumps or triumphs.  This card embodies taking hold of and using your skills in the manner, environment, and direction YOU have decided is in your best and highest good.  This commitment involves taking back your power instead of allowing or giving it away to anything or anyone else.  By being responsible (able to respond) for your own actions, you shower blessings into the lives of those around you and provide a service to humanity by not leaving any of your “stuff” for someone else to have to clean up.

The spotlight is now on the five of swords, choosing not to fight.  Fives represent the freedom to choose or self-expression.  This card says that the way to win is not to play.  Even if there are those around you, S.W., who define themselves as fighters and are eager to tempt you into engaging in their favorite pastime, you can resist the invitation and walk away instead.  This allows you to save your energies for later when they can best serve you.

The spotlight is moving toward the Tower, the sudden destruction of what has been built so far.  Because this card is a member of the Major Arcana and is in your reading, S.W., it means there is a connection to your soul’s agenda for this lifetime.  The flash of lightning that strikes down what was formerly considered a “crowning achievement” causes upheaval, but the small flashes of yellow in this card that fall along with the people who were building it are, once again, blessings that are a direct result of the hit.  This card always reminds me of the television commercial where the person smacks her/his head and proclaims, “Gee, I could’ve had a V8!”  Building in the new reality is now possible.

The summary card is the eight of cups, feeling dissatisfied with “what is.”  Although eight is the number of alignment, harmony, and manifestation, the figure in the card has turned her/his back on the feelings, emotions, and relationships that are in place and is off to gather more.  The message of the card is to value and appreciate what you have and to align yourself with your resources.  Remember that “thank you” means “keep it coming.”  Taken as a whole, this mini-reading indicates that if you continue to be your own best guide and refrain from joining other people’s conflicts, you will have a flash of insight that will help you align and strengthen the riches that are in your life.

3-Card Reading for C.M.

                

C.M. 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 __________.”  C.M. 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 cups, so there is a likelihood that this reading centers on feelings, emotions, relationships, and psychic abilities.  Also, there is only one member of the Major Arcana in this mini-reading, so there is somewhat of a connection to C.M.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime.

The spotlight has been on Judgement, the false perception that a choice needs to be made.  This card appears when the seeker is holding the belief that (s)he must choose between helping her/himself and helping others.  You cannot do one without affecting the other.  This card bears the number 20 (2+0) that stands for a choice (2) being seen/made from the higher perspective of the zero (0).  This card asks the seeker to transcend the apparent polarity of whom to help, and it rises above that energy to create a reality where both exist and where everything responds to the angelic vibration of love.  If you act in love, self-love and love for others, you cannot go wrong.

The spotlight is moving toward the feeling that someone/something is missing in C.M.’s life.  This can be anything from missing someone who was visiting and has just left, to the death of a loved one, or the absence of a life-quality such as happiness.  In any event, the advice of the card is to acknowledge that you are hurting, be gentle with yourself, allow yourself time to heal, and then redirect ALL your energies into the two cups that are still standing.  Concentrate on what you still have in resources and be grateful for them.  Remember that “thank you” means “keep it coming.”

The spotlight is moving toward the seven of swords, the need to de-escalate the conflict.  Figure out what needs to be taken care of immediately, what can be taken care of later, and what, even though by definition, it’s part of the picture, can be ignored because it cannot hurt you.  This reduces the issues at play and also reduces the level of contention so that  compromises and solutions can be  reached in a less confrontational atmosphere.

The summary card is the four of cups, ignoring or being unaware of an opportunity that is presenting itself.  This “stuck” position is due to protecting your heart, C.M., so that you won’t be hurt again; however, this is like the phrase, “Blessed be he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.”  Yes, it’s true, but at what cost?  Perhaps it is helpful to remember that you have the absolute right to change your mind, and if this opportunity turns out to be less than beneficial, you can put down that cup and choose another.  If you don’t take a chance, you’ll never know.  Good luck, C.M..

3-Card Reading for C.F.

                 

C.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 __________.”  C.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.  Since two out of the first three are swords as well as threes, it is safe to say this mini-reading is about how C.F. expresses her/himself in a conflict situation.  The only member of the Major Arcana is the summary card, so the first three cards explain the underlying circumstances that influence the connection to C.F.’s soul’s agenda.  In other words, the first three cards here tell C.F. what specifics (s)he needs to address in order to resolve the issue depicted in the summary.

The spotlight has been on the knight of swords, scattering one’s energies.  When this card appears, it usually indicates that someone or something OUTSIDE the seeker has been labeled a threat.  This knight charges into battle immediately because (s)he has always considered her/himself a responsible individual and has been dedicated to helping others.  The message of the card is, “Wait a minute!”  (S)he has not taken the time to evaluate the reality of the threat much less its level of manifestation.  This knee-jerk behavior will soon exhaust the knight’s energy and prove ineffective in handling any threat that may exist.  It is far better to spend some time authenticating what is or is not a threat and then plan and prioritize the nature and extent of one’s response.

The spotlight is now on the king of pentacles, so it looks like C.F. has followed the above advice.  Kings represent mastery, so right now, (s)he has made some decisions that reflect the utmost integrity and truth that will allow everyone to benefit.

The spotlight is moving toward the three of swords, the heartache card.  Because of its position in this reading, it looks like the final issue keeping C.F. in conflict is confronting and healing the hurts from the past.  This card usually appears when the timing is right to acknowledge and remove the swords that wounded the heart a long time ago.  The heart has absorbed those hurts and is not bleeding.  It is time to let the heart begin to heal, hopefully with little or no scarring.  To do this, the swords must be handled carefully, identified, and removed gently, one at a time.

The summary card is Strength, which speaks of attunement, alignment, harmony, flow, and manifestation.  This card almost always alerts the seeker that (s)he is attempting to move too quickly before all the parts are in  place.  It is only when the seeker’s vibration matches that of her/his goal that the energy can flow and manifestation can happen.  The two swords that appear in the first three cards are indications that a vibrational match is not possible until their issues are addressed.  Once C.F. is able to focus her/his energies and remove the “wounded” status of the heart, (s)he can raise her/his vibration and bring her/his plans to fruition.  You can do it, C.F..
