3-Card Reading for H.B.

                               

H.B. has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me some insight into __________.”  H.B. 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.  If we include the summary card, there are two eights (17=1+7=8) in this mini-reading, which means the focus is on alignment, harmony, attunement, and manifestation.  There is also one member of the Major Arcana, which indicates that the information here is linked to H.B.’s soul’s agenda, not just to her/his everyday life.

The spotlight has been on the Star, sometimes called the Way-shower, being able to see the bigger picture and align yourself to enhance the energy flow that can guide others.  You return source to source and turn source into resource.  This card affirms that you have enough self-confidence, self-respect, and self-love to be an inspiration to others.  It is a testimony to your ability, H.B., to be your own best friend with your subconscious fully in tune with your outward actions.

The spotlight is now on the six of cups, healing the negative messages about your being worthy and able to give and accept love.  Love is all around you, flourishing and blossoming; it’s time to take the gloves off and become a full participant in the process. The figure on the far left walking away from the scene represents all the ancestral and inherited limiting negative messages about who you are and your “place” in the world.  It is time to move from the black-and-white into the full technicolor reality of who you really are.

The spotlight is moving toward the Knight of Pentacles, who has stopped temporarily to assess the journey and get an answer to the question, “Is that all there is?”  This is you, H.B., and you are being guided on your journey by your values, doing good deeds, and then riding on.  You have been wondering if this is as good as it gets.  The answer is a resounding “NO.”  There is much more to come.

The summary card is the eight of wands, the promise that the efforts you launched a while ago to reach the next higher level are about to land.  This card alerts you to get ready.  Taken as a whole, this reading is very exciting.  It indicates that the limitations and restrictions have been lifted, and you are about to become even more of an inspiration than you are already.  Good luck, H.B..

3-Card Reading for A.S.

                            

A.S.  has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me some insight into __________.”  A.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.  There are two cups in the first group of three, which means the focus of this reading is on feelings, emotions, relationships, and psychic abilities.  There are no members of the Major Arcana, so this mini-reading addresses A.S.’s everyday life rather than her/his soul’s agenda.

The spotlight has been on the Page of Cups, beginning a new relationship.  You have recently, A.S., started to look at yourself in a new way, either in relation to another individual or to part(s) of yourself.  The good news is that your feet are on solid ground, and you are calm and stable so that when the fish jumps out of the cup, you are able to accept and assimilate it into your life instead of being thrown into a panic or startled.  Pages represent the initial stage of the journey toward mastery, and you are on your way.

The spotlight is now on the four of cups, ignoring or not being aware of an opportunity that is present.  The central figure in this card is guarding his heart; he doesn’t want to be vulnerable or hurt.  His eyes are downcast.  He has made himself comfortable sitting on the ground and leaning against a tree; he is not ready to move.  However, a foundation of four cups is more solid and safer than that of three; a square or rectangle is more stable than a triangle for a base.  This card suggests that  movement/growth means at least looking up and seeing what is being offered.  Please remember, A.S., you have the right to change your mind.  Go ahead and try it; you may be pleasantly surprised.

The spotlight is moving toward the King of Swords, mastery over conflict.  Because this card is in your reading, A.S., it means you have earned the right to be the authority, the deciding vote, the one who cuts through the chatter and the conflict and declares, “That’s enough; this is what will happen next.”  It is so because you say it is.

The summary card is the nine of pentacles, the restrictions and obligations that come with holding a position of responsibility.  Even though you sometimes would like nothing better than to take the hood off the falcon and let it fly, you must practice restraint and decorum because of the position of responsibility you hold.  It is, therefore, important and necessary that you put yourself on a regular basis into environments that support you and permit the full expression of who you are.  Taken as a whole, this reading seems to suggest that such a place does exist, and you need to become aware of it and expand your reality to include it.

3-Card Reading for S.C.

                           

S.C.  has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me some insight into __________.”  S.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.  If we include the summary card, three cards in this mini-reading are members of the Major Arcana, so this is definitely information about one or more items on S.C.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime.  This agenda has been left in the hands of the Higher Self, who continues to create opportunities for H.W.  to encounter and conquer “lessons” that S.C. desired to address this time around.  The list was created before S.C. incarnated, so part of the challenge is to discover the pattern that exists and expand the wisdom surrounding it.  There are also two fives (king=14=1+4=5) in this reading that translate to a focus on freedom and choosing.

The spotlight has been on the Hierophant, sometimes called the High Priest, a card that affirms the Gift of Intuition or Inner Knowing.  As a five, this card emphasizes freedom and choosing.  S.C., you have access to the energies and information of the higher realms, and your advice and help are sought after by many.  Sometimes, in an effort to be of service and healing, you tend to tell too much, so this card appears to caution you to guard your words and choose both the timing and the content of the messages you deliver.  If you adhere to those guidelines, your words will be a blessing to/for yourself and others.

The spotlight is now on the Lovers, the gift of healing. This is, indeed, another statement of how gifted you are, S.C..  It is also a reminder that the goal of your journey is to be able to hold the space and supply the support and permission for others to heal themselves if that is what they choose.  It is highly significant that the lovers pictured in this card are not in physical contact with each other; they are united and blessed by the angel above them.  They serve a greater purpose.

The spotlight is moving toward the King of Cups, mastery in the realms of feelings, emotions, and psychic abilities.  You are able, S.C., to ride the ups and downs of the watery elemental realm, maintain your balance, and not even get your foot wet.  This card speaks to your having healthy boundaries and stability as an empath, your sensitivities that allow you to feel the entire range of energies that are around you but not allow them to control you.

The summary card is the Star, sometimes called the Way-Shower, your being able to see the bigger picture and align yourself to enhance the energy flow that can guide others.  You return source to source and turn source into resource.  This card affirms that you have enough self-confidence, self-respect, and self-love to be an inspiration to others.  When taken as a whole, this mini-reading clearly addresses the concept of balance, when to speak and when to keep silent, when to support and encourage the efforts someone else takes on her/his own behalf, and when to accept the situation when those efforts are not met or embraced by the person you are trying to help, allowing each individual the freedom to choose her/his path.

3-Card Reading for C.L.

                                 

C.L. has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me some insight into __________.”  C.L. 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.  There are two ones (10=1+0=1) in the first group, and if we include the summary card, there is a member of the Major Arcana, so the focus of this mini-reading is on leading, controlling, and directing actions toward addressing one or more items on C.L.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime.

The spotlight has been on the ace of pentacles, a triumph of integrity.  This is the only ace in the deck that doesn’t automatically shower blessings upon any and all who are near it.  This is due, in part, to the presence of strong, healthy boundaries that help define you, C.L., where the consistent interplay of the best and highest values shapes your thoughts, feelings, and actions.  You “walk your talk” and are an inspiration to any who choose to look up and emulate you.

The spotlight is now on the two of cups, the friendship card.  Once again, this reading is talking about the context or environment in which you operate.  There is an equal exchange of feelings, emotions, and psychic abilities here, where each participant is 100% engaged and the commitment is to the quality of the relationship, not just to another individual.  This suits your integrity just fine and reminds you of all you are as it feeds and supports your interactions with others who play by the same rules.  These relationships exist within your life right now.

The spotlight is moving toward the ten of swords, the need for discernment before you act.  The red in this picture is not blood (that’s his cape) and the swords are psychological.  The key to this card lies in the figure’s right hand.  He went into a situation to bring it a blessing but forgot to pause on the threshold to make sure the other(s) involved needed and wanted the blessing he was bringing.  This is the meaning of “Don’t cast pearls before swine.” It’s not because the swine are dirty and lowly, it’s because swine can not use and/or appreciate pearls.  This translates to your life, C.L., as slowing down a bit and not rushing in to uplift others.  Make sure that what you are offering will be received in an accepting/appreciative manner before you give.  If you sense that this is not the case, feel free to keep it to yourself.

The summary card is Strength, an apt and logical conclusion to the process this reading refers to.  It is only when the essential parts are in harmony and are attuned to each other that the energy can flow and manifest.  This card usually appears when the seeker is trying to move too quickly before all the parts are in place.  Considering the reading as a whole, it looks like you may have to slow down a little and make sure your vibration is consistent in tone and volume with the environment of the issue and that of the goal you wish to manifest.  Look before you leap.  Good luck.

3-Card Reading for H.W.

                       

H.W. has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me some insight into __________.”  H.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.  If we include the summary card, three cards in this mini-reading are members of the Major Arcana, so this is definitely information about one or more items on H.W.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime.  This agenda has been left in the hands of the Higher Self, who continues to create opportunities for H.W.  to encounter and conquer “lessons” that H.W. desired to address this time around.  The list was created before H.W. incarnated, so part of the challenge is to discover the pattern that exists and expand the wisdom surrounding it.  There are also two fours (13=1+3=4) which stand for foundation, building, and safety.  This reading will contain some clues about the wisdom you hold, how you use it, and what you need in order to feel safe.

The spotlight has been on the six of wands, understanding and healing the role of leadership.  Even though you have used your skills and talents to win glory, the effort has not been yours alone.  It is time, H.W., for you to appreciate your membership in the larger group and share the triumph with those who have supported and participated in the effort.  Just as you have probably beaten up on yourself for letting the whole group down or blamed yourself for every defeat, it is now time to savor the victory and let go of the past regrets and resentments while celebrating the achievements that are here now.

The spotlight is now on the Hanged Man, suspended action.  You have been feeling some frustration lately because nothing seems to be happening and/or moving in your life.  This is a consciously chosen time-out designed to give you a new perspective and a new mind-set.  Once you have absorbed the new outlook, you can easily release your foot and resume your journey with a clearer idea of where you’re going, with whom, and why.

The spotlight is moving toward the Emperor, the gift of wisdom and the foundation on which you rest and rule.  Considering the first two cards as an introduction to this third one, you can see that your idea of being a leader and how that determines your behavior has changed.  This gift allows you to be part of the process by allowing the truth to shine through instead of taking all the results personally and thinking you are the end result yourself.  This frequently results in your indulging in  provocative behavior, asking better questions, and letting all the participants see/hear/experience the truth themselves.

The summary card is Death, which emphasizes that nothing dies but the form.  A new day is dawning, and it is time to allow the old way of doing things (the form) to die so that new life may begin.  Considering the reading as a whole, it looks, H.W., as if your new perspective will allow you a new definition of the word “responsible” as “able to respond.”  You can let go of the burden of blame and self-recrimination for the actions of the past and see your role as embracing your  participation in life in a clearer, free way.

3-Card Reading for A.S.

                         

A.S. has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me some insight into __________.” A.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 two out of the first three are wands, it is safe to say that this mini-reading focuses on skills and talents.  If we include the summary card, there are also two members of the Major Arcana and two fours (13=1+3=4), so this reading addresses A.S.’s skills and talents and the way they function as a foundation upon which to build.

The spotlight has been on the Empress, unlimited creativity.  This is a gift that you have taken for granted all your life, A.S..  You put things together in new and unusual ways that other people have not thought of before.  You don’t always stick around to nurture what you give birth to.  This gift is frequently accompanied by a good sense of humor, so you enjoy entertaining yourself and others and are often in the spotlight.  This card is in your reading to remind you to value this gift.

The spotlight is now on the six of wands, another reminder, if you will.  Your leadership position and the laurels you have won are a direct result of your participation in a group effort.  Even though you carry the trophy, it’s a good idea to acknowledge the rest of the group and share the glory.  Give someone else a chance to ride the horse.

The spotlight is moving toward the four of wands, taking your skills and talents out into the world and further enhancing them.  The message of this card is that those skills and talents are indeed good enough, strong enough, and alive enough to provide you an established foundation beyond the place where you started.

The summary card is Death, which represents a change in form.  Because it is in this position in this mini-reading, it tells you that given the first three cards, it is time to allow the form, which has outlived its usefulness, to die while you embrace the new form that has already made an appearance.  This is often a challenge when the old form has garnered so many benefits in the past, and letting go can be frightening.  A new day is dawning, and it calls for a new response from you.  You can do it, A.S..  Good luck.

3-Card Reading for B.T.

                         

B.T. has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me some insight into __________.” B.T. 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 three of the first group are swords, this is most certainly a reading about resolving conflict.  There are no members of the Major Arcana in this mini-reading, so the focus is on B.T.’s everyday life rather than her/his life lessons and/or soul’s agenda.

The spotlight has been on the Knight of Swords, scattering one’s energies.  This card frequently shows up when the seeker has taken on responsibilities that might not even be hers/his to begin with.  The “what’s mine and what’s not” issues are an outgrowth of the self-definition the seeker has chosen and go hand-in-hand with blurred boundaries.  This card shows an “act first, think later” response, which often proves exhausting.  The advice of the card is to pull back a bit and carefully assess the situation before acting.

The spotlight is now on the ten of swords, using discernment to choose when, where, an how your actions will be received and perceived before you just go ahead and attempt to bring a blessing to an environment that may or may not need/want the gift you bring.  Do you see how well this fits with the message of the first card?

The spotlight is moving toward the five of swords, non-engagement with the conflict.  Here again, the discernment and the freedom to choose are paramount.  The way to win is not to play.  Even though the temptation to fight seems to beckon, you would be better served by walking away.  Ironically, winning here would imply taking on more conflict, and who needs that?

The summary card is the two of pentacles, resolving the”yes, but” moments.  This card speaks to the perceived mutually exclusive nature of a choice where choosing one is seen as rejecting the other.  It is only when you substitute the word “and” for the word “but” that your reality expands to contain both.  I often frustrate telemarketers by saying, “I like your product, and I’m not going to purchase it.”  Allowing for both permits you to stop expending energy dealing with a conflict that no longer exists.
