V.P. has submitted the above cards for interpretation. 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 a clarifier. Since two out of the first three are members of the Major Arcana (as is the summary card), it is safe to say that this reading addresses V.P.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime.
The spotlight has been on the Wheel of Fortune, using the repetitive patterns of life experiences to identify, understand, and conquer the challenges V.P. chose to set up for this lifetime. Before (s)he began this incarnation, V.P. selected certain accomplishments (s)he wanted to achieve this time around and left this “list” with her/his Higher Self, who, in turn, placed them on the spinning wheel of life so that V.P. would encounter opportunities to master them. Every time V.P. found her/himself in a challenging situation was evidence of one of the chances to overcome one or more of those very obstacles (s)he had selected. If (s)he didn’t quite “get it,” that item stayed on the wheel and came around again and again. Once the agenda item is experienced, understood, and surmounted, it is removed from the wheel and marked “complete.” When this card appears, it alerts the seeker to a pattern of unresolved challenges so that (s)he can identify the specific lesson (s)he wanted to learn, take care of it, and get it off the wheel.
The spotlight is now on the four of cups, ignoring or not being aware of an opportunity that is being offered. Please see the strong connection to the first card in the reading. V.P. is seated with her/his hands crossed over her/his heart and eyes downcast. (S)he doesn’t want to get hurt, but not accepting the fourth cup means (s)he does not feel safe, sure, and steady and remains stuck, not moving forward. V.P., you have the right to change your mind, but passing up this opportunity guarantees your staying stuck, so go for it.
The spotlight is moving toward the Star, being part of the larger picture. This card comes up when there is an opportunity to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem. V.P., you are in a position to become an enhancer and and an enabler of the flow instead of an obstacle to it. This is your moment to shine, to have enough self-confidence, self-love, and self-respect to be an outstanding example to others.
The summary card is the World, the graduation card. That’s you, V.P., with a diploma in both hands. You’ve got what it takes; now, you only have to decide where you are going to take it.
