A.B. has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me insight into __________.” A.B. has not told me what (s)he has put into the blank space. 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 two wands in the first group of three, it is safe to say that this mini-reading focuses on A.B.’s skills and talents. There are no members of the Major Arcana, so this reading addresses more of an everyday issue or specific situation rather than a pattern of behavior that hints of the soul’s agenda for this lifetime.
The spotlight has been on the six of wands, the lesson of the good leader. It is important, A.B., that you realize a recent victory and/or accomplishment is the result of a group effort. Even though you have been at the forefront of this effort, you will solidify your acknowledged position by sharing the accolades and the glory. You will enhance both your own status and that of the other group members by every once in a while getting off the horse and letting one of them ride instead.
The spotlight is now addressing your concern that you may not have enough strength, stamina, and endurance to reach the end of the journey. There is great reassurance here that you have more than enough of whatever it takes to keep going and reach your goal. Fear not, you have not seen your last victory by a long shot.
The spotlight is moving toward the four of cups, being unaware and/or ignoring an opportunity that is being offered. Because this card has appeared in this position, it emphasizes that the journey is not done. The crossed arms protecting your heart are evidence that you are reluctant to become involved because you do not want to be hurt again. In order for your journey to continue, you’re being asked to lift your eyes, raise your awareness, and take advantage of what is already present in your reality. Remember that you have the right to change your mind.
The summary card is the ace of swords, a triumph of decisive action and an appropriate summary of the first three cards. This card urges you to figure out just what you want and then go for it, temporarily ignoring anyone and anything else. The crown supports both the laurel (victory) and the olive (reconciliation) that may accompany this action. When taken as a whole, A.B., this reading strongly supports informed action on your part at this time.
