F.F. 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 the first three contain two sets of two-or-more-of-a-kind (queens[13=1+3=4] + pentacles), it is reasonable to say that this reading focuses on the hesitation of full expression based on the need to feel safe, values, priorities, and practical matters.
The spotlight has been on the queen of cups, blocked and/or repressed emotions. When this card appears, it signals that the seeker is very much in touch with most of her/his feelings, emotions, and relationships but is spending a lot of energy keeping the “negative” emotions of fear, envy, anger, and/or grief covered and contained because of a hesitancy to express it/them. This has been going on for a while, and the cup is so heavy it requires both hands to hold and balance it. It’s time to lift the lid and let go of its contents. I recommend Dr. Bradley Nelson’s Emotion Code (TM) as a highly effective way of pinpointing what it is that is holding the queen back. I also use Theta Healing(TM) as a method for changing the limiting beliefs that are keeping the seeker stuck.
The spotlight is now on the queen of pentacles, more hesitation to express the values and gifts that the seeker possesses. This card, again, says the time for sitting and contemplating (worrying) about the full expression of the gift(s) (s)he holds is over and finished. The world needs what (s)he has to offer, and the timing is right to carry it/them into the active living environment.
The spotlight is moving toward the ten of pentacles, discerning which values and priorities will best serve as a point of expression at this time. Will the seeker choose to take the perspective of the young man in the picture and see only the safe, sure, practical picture, or will (s)he choose the view of the woman and/or that of the child who see all the values in play? The woman is ready to act; the child is not. Is it in the seeker’s best and highest interest for her/him to adopt the position of the old man, who is in touch with both the earth and animal kingdoms? This still requires some contemplation before a choice is made.
The summary card is the knight of cups who is proceeding at a snail’s pace because (s)he doesn’t want to make a mistake. Being human necessitates the risk of failure, and wisdom dictates that we grow by learning from each and every one of our failures and/or mistakes. This card appears to reassure the seeker that resource is always at hand, and this degree of caution is unwarranted and non-productive. Taken as a whole, F.F., it looks like once you have pinpointed and released the emotions that you are reluctant to process, you are reassured that it is your time to act, and all you need to do is choose the level from and on which your gift(s) will be manifested. Please buy into the thrill and excitement of taking the risk to be more of who you truly are. Does this make sense? I hope it was helpful.
