F.W. has requested an interpretation of the above cards. 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 pentacles, this reading focuses on values, priorities, resources, and what F.W. can always count on in order to feel safe. If we include the summary card, there are also two members of the Major Arcana, so the information conveyed here pertains to F.W.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime and affects all areas of her/his life.
The spotlight has been on the eight of pentacles, the card of the sole-practitioner. When you “do your own thing,” F.W., the quality of your work is very high, and it speaks for itself. This card represents the alignment of your values and their expression. If there is any part of your work that you feel still needs some fine-tuning, take the time and make the effort to adjust it/them before putting the results on display.
The spotlight is now on the ace of pentacles, a triumph of integrity. You are an inspiration to others, a shining example of what it means to fully lead, control, and direct your thoughts, feelings, and actions to match the highest vibrations that you embrace. Please note that this is the only ace in the deck that does not automatically shower blessings on others. It is completely up to others to lift their own eyes and recognize that this is possible. Do you see how this card logically follows the first one in this reading?
The spotlight is moving toward the Tower, a sudden flash of insight that topples what has been built up so that building may start anew in a different direction. This usually signifies a perspective-producing event, anything from a “Gee, I could’ve had a V-8” moment, the complete annihilation of a job or living space, to a natural disaster that occasions a total re-vamping of one’s whole lifestyle. The result of this card is always a “sadder but wiser” outlook. You are certain to survive this and learn from it.
The summary card is the High Priestess, unlimited creativity. This is another of the Gifts from Spirit that you embody, F.W.. You may be seen as somewhat wild and crazy, for you put things together in new and different ways and take pleasure in expressing them. You don’t always stick around to nurture these creations, but you are constantly coming up with new ones. Enjoy this gift.
