H.A. has requested an interpretation of the above cards. 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 wands, and the summary card is as well, it is safe to say that this mini-reading focuses on H.A.’s skills and talents. The presence of a member of the Major Arcana (the Star) indicates that the issue that prompted the request for a reading is linked to H.A.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime.
The spotlight has been on the four of wands, celebrating that your skills and talents are good enough and strong enough to provide you shelter out in the world. H.A., you can depend on them as resources because they represent a strong foundation for any action on your part in the future.
The spotlight is now on the Star, highlighting your ability to aid and abet the flow of energies, returning source to source and turning source to resource. This is a wonderful addition to the first card, for it emphasizes your self-definition, self-respect, and self-love that have allowed you to inspire others. You are exquisitely balanced and adept at seeing the “big picture” and your place in the larger context.
The spotlight is moving toward the king of wands, mastery in the area of skills and talents. No matter what job and/or position you hold in today’s world, you are really good at what you do. You are at the top of your game and are willing to share the glory with others (note the salamander by your foot). Because you are so good, you may experience some jealousy and resentment from others less talented, but that’s more a statement about them than it is about you. Keep up the good work.
The summary card is the three of wands. You have recently completed launching a project or finishing your contribution to another person’s advancement. You have hopes and wishes for that person or thing’s future, but you no longer have direct control. The advice of the card is NOT to automatically reach for the same old thing(s) you used to whenever you finished a project and had some spare time, but realize that you have developed some new skills and talents in the course of completing what has just finished. Utilize those now, and you will find that they pay off beautifully for you. Good luck, H.A..
