3-Card Reading for P.D.

            

P.D. 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 __________.”  P.D. 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, the focus of this mini-reading is on P.D.’s values and priorities.  There are no members of the Major Arcana present, nor are there any other two-of-a-kind-or-more in suits or numbers, so the focus is on P.D.’s everyday life.

The spotlight has been on the Knight of Pentacles, who is guided by his values and priorities.  He rides into situations where help is needed, makes things better, and then rides on; he doesn’t stick around for a thank-you. Of course, P.D., this is you.  This card shows up when you are questioning if this is as good as it gets.  You are wondering if you have completed the journey you undertook as this lifetime, if you’ve done what you set out to do, and if this is all there is.  The answer is a resounding, “NO!”  You are not the environment in which you find yourself; you are not the job, the relationship, or the circumstances, and there is much more of the journey to come.

The spotlight is now on the six of swords, a card of service and healing in a conflict situation.  You are attempting to move the boat from the rough waters to the smooth and keep everyone safe.  You must maintain a light touch, or you will sink the boat.  This translates to being non-confrontational and as reassuring and supportive as you can, at least until you reach your destination. Keep your focus on being part of the solution and not adding to the problem. Slow and steady wins the race.

The spotlight is moving toward the five of pentacles, a card of freedom to choose.  Even if current circumstances seem dire, you can change everything by choosing your perspective, by looking up, by going within instead of going without.  Resource is always at hand.

The summary card is the nine of wands.  It fits so beautifully into this reading.  P.D., you are a multi-talented individual, but you have been leaning heavily on one particular set of skills and talents and have suffered for this.  This card appears to caution you not to “put all your eggs in one basket” but to make use of more of your gifts and abilities to take care of yourself in any situation you may encounter.  In summary, this is a time to adjust your perspective, believe in yourself, and know that you are not defined by what you are going through.  You do make a difference, P.D., and will continue to do so.  Good luck.

3-Card Reading for C.P.

               

C.P. 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.P. 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. This is one of those rare occasions when all four cards are members of the Major Arcana, which means that this mini-reading is most definitely about C.P.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime.

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.  C.P., 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 Tower, a defining moment when a flash of insight destroys what has been built up and forces you to start over in a new way.  Although many people focus on the destruction aspect of this card, the tiny gold specks on both sides of the tower are blessings that rain down on the whole scene.  This is like an OMG moment where the actions of the past are crumbled and/or wiped out by the lightning bolt of truth.  This clears the area and allows a healthier goal to be seen.  The falling figures will land on their feet and live to start building again.  Embrace the new, clearer perception you have been granted, C.P..

The spotlight is moving toward the Star, sometimes called the Way-shower.  Grounded and balanced, C.P., you are able to aid the energy flow by returning source to source and turning source to resource.  You enable others to realize they are part of a larger pattern, a bigger picture.  You have enough self-knowledge, self-respect, and self-confidence  to stand out as an inspiration and guide; you are a star.

The summary card is the Wheel of Fortune on which you have placed the challenges you wish to address and conquer in this lifetime.  Once you have succeeded, they are removed from the wheel, so there are fewer of them to encounter as life spins on.  It may take many revolutions to identify and deal with what you have set up to master, and your Higher Self keeps creating opportunities for you to recognize the challenges you have chosen and deal with them.  This card appears to alert you to what you keep bumping into (recognize patterns), remind you that you set it all up, and help you manage your life as you unearth the lessons to be learned. Good luck, C.P..

3-Card Reading for R.G.

                      

R.G. 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 __________.”  R.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.  If we include the summary card, there are two kings in this mini-reading but no other two-or-more-of-a-kind in suit or number.  This means that there is a focus on mastery, the realm of the kings, and the concepts of freedom and choosing, the “five” quality they both carry (king=14=1+4=5).  There are no members of the Major Arcana  here, so the focus is on R.G.’s everyday existence.

The spotlight has been on the Ace of Wands, taking back the power to lead one’s life. All aces are triumphs, and this one speaks to any tendency that R.G. may have had to allow anyone or anything else to control her/his thoughts, feelings, and actions.  The power is back in R.G.’s hands, and its very existence showers blessings into the lives of others.

The spotlight is now on the King of Pentacles, the master of integrity.  R.G. has mastered being in the world but not of it.  (S)he is completely aligned with her/his values and priorities and leads by example.  The choices (s)he makes reflect the best and highest available.  This may make her/him a target for others’ jealousies and resentments, but (s)he rises easily above this.

The spotlight is moving toward the nine of swords, the nightmare card.  This is one of the “timing” cards in the tarot deck, and it appears when the seeker is losing sleep over a problem situation that cannot be resolved immediately but can be handled more easily the next morning when the sun shines on it and the seeker is well-rested and better able to deal with it.  In other words, the timing is not quite right for immediate action, so worrying about it NOW only adds to the problematic nature of the situation.

The summary card is the King of Cups, mastery in the realm of feelings, emotions, relationships, and psychic abilities.  R.G. is so in touch with these that (s)he can ride the ups and downs of the emotional waves and never even get her/his foot wet.  The only down side to this position is that others may misinterpret the evenness of the resultant behavior as “not caring.”  R.G. does not get dragged down by others’ opinions.

3-Card reading for O.W.

         

O.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 __________.”  O.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 two out of the first three are wands, it is safe to say that this reading focuses on O.W.’s skills and talents.  If we include the summary card, there are also two tens, which reduce to ones (10=1+0=1) and speak of using discernment in leading, controlling, and directing one’s life.  Again, including the summary card, there are two members of the Major Arcana, so there is a connection in the mini-reading to O.W.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime.

The spotlight has been on the Page of Wands, dedicating one’s skills and talents to lead the way on the path to mastery and beginning that journey.  As the entry level of the court cards, the pages aspire to become knights and manifest their highest and best energies in service.  This page, O.W., is you and shows up to remind you of your choice and commitment to dedicate yourself to using what you are really good at doing/being to guide you.  It is no accident that this card has a desolate and barren background.  Whether this choice is a first for you or a reminder of past dedications, it is a way to move beyond the desert that you have been experiencing.

The spotlight is now on the ten of wands, the need to find a better way to carry your many skills and talents.  You are a multi-talented individual, O.E., but that feels more like a burden than a gift right now.  The message of the card is to stop trying to display all of it at one time.  Choose one to lead, bundle the rest, tuck the bundle under one arm, and take yourself to town, where you will find a way to incorporate several more of your skills and talents when it is appropriate to do so.  This may explain why you have been feeling overwhelmed and somewhat stuck.

The spotlight is moving toward the High Priestess, the gift of knowledge.  This card says you already have inside you all the answers you seek, O.W., but you must get yourself to a quiet, calm, steady, balanced place in order to be able to access them.  Do you see how this is the solution to what prompted this reading?

The summary card is the Wheel of Fortune.  This wheel has all the items from your “To-do-in-this-lifetime” list that you left with your Higher Self when you came into this incarnation.  These are the challenges you chose to encounter and hopefully master. Please notice, O.W., that the figures in the four corners of the card are the symbols for the fixed signs of the zodiac.  They represent the management attributes of the signs, how you handle the challenges.   This is the Wheel of Life that keeps spinning, and until you recognize and master the challenges you have placed on the wheel, they will keep knocking into you every time the wheel brings them around again.

3-Card Reading for P.E.

            

P.E. 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 __________.”  P.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 two out of the first three are members of the Major Arcana, this is a reading about M.M.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime.  If we include the summary card, there are also two cups, so this mini-reading focuses on feelings,  emotions, relationships, and psychic abilities.

The spotlight has been on the eight of cups, being dissatisfied with what you have built so far.  When this card appears, it usually indicates someone who tends to take things personally and focuses on what (s)he perceives as “still missing.” The person pictured has turned her/his back on the accumulated feelings, emotions, relationships, and psychic abilities already in place and is going off to search for more.  “What is” is perceived as “not enough.”  The Universal Law of Attraction guarantees that this mind-set will attract and draw to it more of the same.  As an eight, this card calls out for harmony, alignment, and attunement in order to manifest.  The message of the card is to get yourself in harmony to appreciate and work with what you have amassed over time.  It is “good enough” and you are “good enough” as well.

The focus is now on the Devil, giving away your power to something and/or someone to stop you continuing on your path.  This is the embodiment of the “yes, but” attitude that is a logical outgrowth of the first card.  Please notice that the chains are loose enough around the prisoners’ necks that they can remove them easily.  Also, it appears the devil is “lighting a fire” under one of the figures, perhaps to initiate movement.  This card appears to alert you to why you feel stuck and imprisoned.  You do not need to stay there.

The spotlight is moving toward the Magician, your gift of creating and making things happen by channeling energies from the higher realms down to earth.   In this reading, this card appears as a reassurance that you can do just about anything.  You have great power.  The tools you need are on the table in front of you.  Take the time to choose the best tool to employ in the situation.

The summary card is the five of cups, mourning the loss of what used to be. Do you see how this explains what is steering your behavior at this time?  You are feeling very sad because you perceive someone or something is missing in your life.  Please be gentle with yourself and allow yourself the time and space to mourn.  Then, shift your focus, take back your power, and celebrate the two cups that are still standing, knowing that resource is always at hand to refill the cups that have been knocked over.  You can do it, and you are worthy of doing it.

3-Card Reading for M.M.

                   

M.M. 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 __________.”  M.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.  Two out of the three in the first group are members of the Major Arcana, so this is a reading about M.M.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime.

The spotlight has been on the Knight of Cups, being overly-cautious.  This card appears to highlight M.M.’s tendency to proceed at a snail’s pace in order not to spill the contents of the cup.  There is great concern here about making mistakes.  The truth of the matter is that to be human is to be fallible, and growth is only possible when one is willing to take risks and move ahead at a reasonable pace.  The most important part of the picture lies in the nearby lake or stream; resource is always at hand.  It is time to let go of the fear and pick up the pace.

The spotlight is now on the Hermit, the archetype of wisdom and higher understanding.  M.M. has climbed the mountain and reached the heights, carrying the lantern to light the way and enabling others to follow the same path.  This is a huge individual achievement.  The only drawback to this position is that it is sometimes very lonely at the top.  This will be a major factor that influences the situation, and it will be addressed in the summary.

The spotlight is moving toward the Magician, being able to connect with the higher energies and bring them to earth, manifesting as if by magic.  M.M., you are a channel for these energies, and on the table before you, you have all the tools you need to make it happen.  The only other factor you need to consider is to choose the best tool, the appropriate means to employ as part of the process.

The summary card is the six of wands, the lesson of the good leader.  Although the first three cards speak of your individual gifts and efforts, it has been through your participation in group efforts that you have achieved fame and glory.  It is imperative that you acknowledge some of the others who have helped you by occasionally getting down from the horse and letting others ride.  This reading emphasizes that you are not meant to “go it alone.”

3-Card Reading for W.T.

                    

W.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 __________.”  W.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.  All three of the first group are members of the Major Arcana, so this is most certainly a reading about W.T.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime.  The summary card here is the situation in the present time that has prompted the request for this mini-reading and the focus/filter through which these agenda items are attempting expression.

The spotlight has been on the Hierophant, sometimes called the High Priest, a card that represents the gift of intuition or inner knowing. You are a very intuitive person, W.T., and the more you rely on your inner knowing, the stronger it gets.  As a five, this card symbolizes “choosing,” and that seems to be the challenge here.  You have access to information from the higher realms, and, sometimes in an effort to be helpful, you tell too much.  Nobody needs to know everything that you do.  You must choose your words carefully so that when you speak, your words are a blessing to those who hear them.

The spotlight is now on the Devil, giving away your power to someone and/or something outside yourself to determine your reality.  Please note that the chains binding these folks are loose enough that they can be slipped off easily.  This card appears to remind you, W.T., that the Devil only has power over you if you permit it, and you can take back your power any time you choose.

The spotlight is moving toward the Emperor, the gift of wisdom.  This card is said to refer to the methodology of the Biblical King Solomon, who, when faced with two women, each claiming to be the mother of a particular infant, said, “Cut the child in half.” The true mother immediately gave up her claim so that the child might live, and everyone observing the situation clearly saw where the truth lay.  When this card appears, it means that you, W.T., sometimes without taking sides, say and do things that allow others to see the truth for themselves.

The summary card is the ten of wands, a card that urges discernment in choosing which one of your many skills and talents you should present at this time.  You are multi-talented, W.T., and right now, this feels more like a burden than a gift.  Please remember that if you choose one of your skills to lead and bundle the rest, your progress will no longer be impeded, and you will have access to all the rest of your skills to be put into play at the appropriate time and place.  Taken as a whole, this reading looks like it is addressing questions of personal power/choice and fitting into the larger scheme of life.  Yes, W.T., life is a do-it-yourself project, and you have been given powerful gifts to help.  Go for it!
