E.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 members of the Major Arcana, it is safe to say that E.W.’s reading is focused on her/his soul’s agenda for this lifetime and is, therefore, addressing patterns and/or themes that have been present in her/his reality for some time. Both Strength and the Star carry the “eight” vibration, so this is definitely a reading about alignment, attunement, harmony, flow, and resonance.
The spotlight has been on the ten of pentacles, a card that emphasizes choosing a perspective, a lens through which to view reality. E.W. must choose how (s)he is going to view the situation at hand. The narrowest path is the one represented by the young man pictured with his back toward the viewer. His reality is limited to the safe, the sure, the practical, and the earthbound. The middle path is represented by the female figure facing the reader; she allows a small child to hold onto her skirt while her reality encompasses the young man, the elderly figure, the dogs, and the floating pentacles seen through the archway. The old man seated just beyond the archway sees the three figures in the courtyard, and he is touching one of the dogs. He is backed-up by the floating pentacles. The two dogs are focused on the elderly man, but it’s anyone’s guess how aware they are of the total surroundings. This isn’t a question of right or wrong, just the need for E.W. to be aware of which perspective (s)he has chosen.
The spotlight is now on Strength, the card that emphasizes energy can only flow when there is an alignment of vibrations. when transmitter and receiver are tuned to the same channel. This card usually appears when the seeker is attempting to move in a certain direction before all the parts are in place, before (s)he has brought her/his vibration up to the level from where the energy is being broadcast. It indicates there is more fine-tuning to be done before there can be progress and/or resolution to the situation.
The spotlight is moving toward the Star, which underscores Strength by suggesting E.W. see the larger picture and her/his place in it. There is self-confidence and self-respect here as the central figure straddles earth and water, returning source to source and channeling source into resource. This card is sometimes called “The Way-shower,” which refers to the stars as guiding lights, and it is clear that E.W. is that kind of inspiration to others.
The summary card is the Page of Cups that speaks to the beginning of a new relationship. This reading is all about E.W.’s finding her/his place in the movement of energies that make up the universe. It would seem that slowing down just a bit and adjusting her/his vibration to a resonant frequency to that of the flow will allow E.W. to participate in life (and in the area that (s)he has focused on as a source of her/his query) in such a way as to begin a new relationship with someone else and/or with parts of her/himself newly discovered. Keep up the good work, E.W..
