H.H. 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 __________.” H.H. 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. There are two pentacles in this mini-reading, so we know that this request for insight focuses on H.H.’s values, priorities, and work. Also, there is one member of the Major Arcana, so this request for insight does have some connection to H.H.’s soul’s agenda for this lifetime, not just her/his everyday life. There are no other two-of-a-kind-or-more in suits or numbers.
The spotlight has been on the seven of pentacles, the reluctant gardener. You have come to a place in your life, H.H., where you have paused to contemplate all the hard work, time, and attention over the past years that have produced a thriving living thing. a testimony to your efforts. You are somewhat sentimental about the “good old days” when life seemed easier, and the path to success seemed more straightforward. Please know that whatever you did in the past that resulted in such blooming success, you are more than capable of replicating with the opportunity that now lies at your feet. Be here now, and be fully present to invest all your attention on what is.
The spotlight is now on the five of pentacles. It looks like you are facing some challenging circumstances at this time. This certainly adds to the reluctance expressed in the first card. It is important to remember that resource is always at hand, and you can “come in out of the cold” if you focus on going within instead of going without. All the fives in the tarot deck speak of choosing, and this one shows up to remind you that you need not continue to suffer and be miserable. Stop thinking about all the obstacles you will need to overcome and the messages from your own “discouragement committee.” Remember that whatever you put your attention on tends to attract more of the same, so it behooves you to raise your vibration and look up, so you can see that what you want to accomplish is within your reach, and help is available.
The spotlight is moving toward the Devil, all the reasons “why not.” This is absolutely consistent with the first two cards. You have convinced yourself that you are being held prisoner and are unable to follow any other path. In fact, you are leading a tortured existence. “I can’t do it” is the music to which you dance. Please note that the chains that bind you can easily be lifted and removed. This whole situation does require a new perspective, the decision to stop playing victim, and the need to raise your vibration so that it calibrates and attunes to the result you desire.
The summary card is the nine of wands, putting all your eggs in one basket, a fitting explanation for why you are stuck and are indulging in all this negativity. You are multi-talented but have been relying and leaning heavily on only one of your many skills and talents. This has resulted in your being wounded. It’s time to bring more of who you are and what you can do into play. Given the reading as a whole, it looks like your future path is dependent on shifting your focus and raising your vibration. You can do it. Good luck, H.H.
Does this make sense? I hope it was helpful.
