R.P. has submitted the cards above for interpretation. The first three cards are the “heart” of the reading and are read as a unit. The fourth card is then drawn and read as a summary or a clarifier. Since two of the first three cards are members of the Major Arcana, this reading focuses on R.P.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime and is directed toward gaining insight into the larger patterns or themes that influence the flow of R.P.’s life.
The spotlight has been on the Empress, a card of unlimited creativity. R.P. is sometimes called “wild” and “crazy” in a complimentary way since (s)he always seems to come up with new and different ways to see things and put things together. This is a gift that (s)he has taken for granted her/his whole life, and (s)he is often surprised to find out other people don’t seem to function in the same manner. (S)he doesn’t always stick around to nurture and guide the ideas/projects to which (s)he has given birth, and patience is not her/his long suit, but (s)he is often known for her/his sense of humor and (s)he is pleasant to be around.
The spotlight is now on the two of cups that reaffirms R.P.’s tendency to always invest 100% of her/himself in whatever relationship(s) (s)he has. Although (s)he may question the level of commitment from others, this card promises that there are other people who play by the same rules and are “all in” the same way that R.P. is. This card is often called the friendship card because it shows an equal exchange between two people. Both parties profit and thrive when there is full participation from each, and exchanges of feelings, emotions, and psychic abilities at this level are always healing.
The spotlight is moving toward the Sun, which heralds a new beginning on a higher level. R.P. should notice new opportunities opening up in her/his life. Even if (s)he feels somewhat vulnerable, (s)he can proceed with enthusiasm since her/his life experience so far has resulted in a healthy solid, steady core that (s)he can count on to maintain balance.
The summary card is the ten of wands that reaffirms R.P. as a multi-talented individual. There is a plea for discernment here to present only one or two of her/his many talents to enter the new situations and bundle the rest to carry in reserve. R.P. will never be without her/his skills and talents, but it is prudent to refrain from attempting to put all of them in play at once. As the other cards have said, the 100/100 relationship is available as a platform for R.P.’s creativity, but there is no need to overwhelm either the others involved or even oneself. Besides, it’s always a good idea to have more to share as the relationship grows.
Does this make sense? I hope it was helpful. For more information and examples of how I use the tarot cards for insight see some of the earlier posts and check out http://www.tarotforalltime.com
