B.G. has requested an interpretation of the above cards that were drawn according to the protocol of silently completing the sentence, “Please give me some insight into __________.” B.G. 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. If we include the summary card, there are two cups in this mini-reading, so we know that this request for insight focuses on B.G.’s feelings, emotions, relationships, and psychic abilities. Because there is only one member of the Major Arcana, the context for these insights is primarily B.G.’s everyday life with only a slight connection to her/his soul’s agenda for this lifetime. There are no other two-of-a-kind or more in suits or numbers.
The spotlight has been on the Knight of Wands, the fear of making a mistake. Please know that if any of that cup’s contents should spill, a resource is always close at hand; that’s a reassurance. The greater issue, however, is your agreement to be human, which means making mistakes, seeing them as a way to sharpen your focus, and using them to expand your reality. Doing otherwise limits your growth and opportunities, It’s all good, so get going.
The spotlight is now on the two of wands, staying in your comfort zone or taking a risk. You are at a fork in the road where you must choose to either play it safe and choose the slower earthly vibrations, or take a risk and move onward and upward utilizing your skills and talents. The extra wand in back of you speaks to your being able to do more than you realize, and you’re being urged to “go for it.” Take hold of your skills and talents and let them lead and support you in this next phase of your growth and development. Do you see how this card builds on the first one?
The spotlight is moving toward the Page of Cups, taking the first steps on the path to mastery in the area of feelings, emotions, relationships, and psychic abilities. When this card appears, it means you have begun a new relationship, B.G. Your feet are planted firmly on the earth, and you are steady and balanced, holding the cup easily in one hand and not at all flustered by the fish that jumps out of it. Clearly, this cup contains life-supporting water and will feed your soul. This card carries the master vibration of 11, a powerful visionary vibration.
The summary card is the Tower, the complete destruction of what has been built up. The lightning strike can be anything from a sudden insight, like “I coulda had a V8” to the loss of a job, relationship, and/or a person. Looking at the placement of this card in the reading, the loss may be of the old-fashioned and rigid standards of what constitutes good and bad, right and wrong, wise and foolish. The good news that comes with this card is that there is now nothing that stands in your way of following a new path and succeeding.
Does this make sense? I hope it was helpful.
