Q.S. 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 clarifier. Since there are no groups of two-or-more of any suit and/or number, it is safe to say that this reading is designed to address an issue in Q.S.’s everyday life.
The spotlight has been focused on the king of cups, mastery of the emotional/psychic realm. There is no doubt that Q.S. is adept at handling her/his feelings, emotions, relationships, and psychic abilities. (S)he is depicted as riding the ups and downs of the emotional realm while maintaining balance and stability. The “5” nature of the kings grant the freedom of free will and open choices to the seeker who draws one of them in a reading.
The spotlight is now on the six of swords, Q.S.’s desire to be of service and healing in a conflict situation. The advice of the card is to keep moving forward without bearing down on the points of conflict, which would sink the boat. Q.S. is to maintain a light touch, keep the focus general enough to move the situation from the rough waters into the smooth.
The spotlight is moving toward the ace of wands, a triumph of taking back one’s power to lead one’s life as (s)he sees fit without worrying about anyone and/or anything else. The emphasis here is on taking the path of least resistance, moving ahead to the next logical step into the future, and being responsible (able to respond) to whatever life presents. This is not “power over” but “power to” choose and follow your best and highest.
The summary card is the seven of swords, which says that the way to de-escalate the conflict is to “chunk it down.” Figure what must be taken care of immediately, what can be taken care of later, and what (even though it’s part of the larger picture) can be ignored because it is not virulent or aggressive enough to make a difference. It sounds like Q.S. may have been overreacting to the conflict that exists in the situation (s)he is asking about. Q.S. has more going for her/him than (s)he realizes. It’s time to lighten up. Good luck, Q.S..
