C.O. 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 two out of the first three are aces, it is safe to say this reading focuses on triumphing by leading, controlling, and directing action(s).
The spotlight has been on the Devil, giving away power to others. When this card appears, C.O., it means you have been believing and behaving as a victim. There are many reasons why you may have done this, both conscious and unconscious. Avoiding conflict and confrontation, you have opted for letting someone or something else be the determiner(s) of your reality and have bought all this at the price of your own self-esteem and self-worth. Please know that those chains around the victims’ necks are loose enough that they can be lifted easily. You can do this. You can take charge of your own life and stop self-sabotaging. You are worth it.
The spotlight is now on the Ace of Swords, a triumph of overcoming conflict. Figure out what you want and go for it, temporarily ignoring everyone and everything else. Considering the information in the first card, you may need to spend some time allowing yourself to even want something that “selfishly” puts you first, above and beyond others. It is single-pointed determination that will allow you to triumph in this situation. Remember that the people who love and care about you want what’s best for you as well. Your cutting trough the conflict casts blessings into many other lives.
The spotlight is moving toward the ace of cups, the triumph of your being an endless source of emotional support and compassion. People enjoy being around you, not because of anything that you specifically do or say, but simply because of who you are. Like the second card in this reading, you enable blessings to fall into others’ lives.
The summary card is the four of pentacles, the “Fiddler on the Roof.” You have spent a lot of time and effort figuring out what you think, how you feel, and where you stand in all matters of value and importance, but the truth of the matter is that all those values lie outside of you. Until you can understand and believe that YOU are truly valuable and important, that you can always count on and rely on yourself. your position will be somewhat precarious.
