P.W. 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 cards are threes (Hanged Man=12=3), it is safe to say that this reading is focused on expression and the first level of completion. The first group also contains one member of the Major Arcana, so this reading bridges the areas of everyday life and the soul’s agenda for this lifetime.
The spotlight has been on the three of pentacles, a card that suggests working as part of a group rather than as a sole practitioner. This card recognizes that P.W. has made a significant and worthwhile contribution in a group effort toward the construction of something of value.
The spotlight is now on the Hanged Man, which may have prompted the request for a reading. This is one of the most frustrating cards to receive when you want to move quickly toward any sort of goal. The Hanged Man is taking a time out to re-adjust his perspective. The Seeker usually experiences this as a feeling that NOTHING is happening, and (s)he is stuck. In fact, great changes are taking place, but they are all internal rather than external. The halo around the central figure’s head highlights the wisdom that is being absorbed, and soon P.W. will right her/himself and continue on the journey, rested, refreshed, and carrying a new understanding of the situation.
The spotlight is moving toward the seven of swords, which suggests it is wise to de-escalate a conflict situation by “chunking it down.” Figure out what must be taken care of immediately, what can wait until a later time, and what (even though it is by definition part of the problem) can be ignored. Disarming the enemy is a wise choice to avoid a major battle.
The summary card is the Star, more evidence that P.W. has benefited from allowing enough time for the situation to resolve itself. This card is often called “the Way-Shower,” and as an eight vibration (17=1+7=8) reassures P.W. that (s)he is very capable of seeing the larger picture; (s)he is tuned to the frequency that allows self-confidence and self-esteem to be maximized as (s)he turns source into resource at the same time (s)he returns source to source. Whatever the issue is that P.W. has asked about, there will be a healthy and helpful resolution to it, and P.W. will act as an inspiration to others in the judicious handling of it.
Does this make sense? I hope it was helpful. For more information on using tarot cards as a positive tool to gain insight and information, see http://www.tarotforalltime.com Thank you.
