F.R. 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 two-of-a-kind suits or numbers until we get to the summary card, it is safe to say that this reading addresses F.R.’s everyday life in general.
The spotlight has been focused on the two of wands, a choice to make regarding one’s skills and talents. The central figure seems to be weighing whether to proceed with the safe, sure, practical path, represented by the earth on one hand, or to invest energy into the skills and talents held in the other hand. The choice is influenced by the second wand seen to the right of the figure. This is a vote of confidence, F.R., that you have skills and talents held in reserve, which you may not have utilized yet. You are being encouraged to go with more of your skills and talents here.
The spotlight is now on the Moon, a card of wisdom and higher understanding, evolution and revolution. This card usually appears when the seeker encounters a situation the (s)he has dealt with before. This encounter is not welcomed. “I thought I already took care of this. Why is this back in my life again?” is a typical reaction. The reason this challenge/situation has shown up is to inform you, F.R., that you have grown, you have changed, and you are far more able to address, handle, and possibly resolve this pattern that has been in your life for a long time. You may be able to finally put it to rest. Note the droplets of blessings that fall to earth from the moon.
The spotlight is moving toward the knight of swords, becoming aware that you are scattering your energies. The advice of the card is to pull back and plan some strategy rather than riding against the wind and exhausting yourself and your vehicle. Get in touch with your first responsibility being to yourself and see if this is even yours to handle. Do not automatically engage in battle with little or no direction.
The summary card is the king of wands, mastery in the judicious use of one’s skills and talents. You are at the top of your game, F.R., and you are generous in spirit, willing to share the glory. Do not allow others’ jealousies and insecurities to influence you and/or force you to be less than all of who you are.
