J.F. 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 __________.” J.F. 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 ones (10=1+0=1) in this mini-reading and two members of the Major Arcana, so we know that this request for insight focuses on J.F.’s leading, controlling, and directing her/his life as it pertains 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 five of cups, the mourning card. You have recently become aware that someone and/or something is missing from your life, and this has saddened you. Please be gentle with yourself and allow yourself time to mourn. It is important to acknowledge “what is” before you remind yourself that resource is always at hand, raise your vibration to see what you still have, and take action based on that knowing.
The spotlight is now on the Ace of Swords, triumph over conflict. Your ability to figure out what you want and then go for it, ignoring everyone and everything else for the moment, is being celebrated. Single-pointed determination will see you through. Once you get what you want, you may need to address any hurt feelings that your actions have precipitated, but the situation needs your decisive action at this time in order to succeed.
The spotlight is moving toward the Empress, unlimited creativity. This is one of your gifts, J.F., and you’ve probably taken it for granted your whole life. You are easily able to put things together in new and different ways and present them to others. This makes you an exciting and insightful communicator and teacher. You may not always stick around to nurture these new patterns and ideas, but you often give birth to them.
The summary card is the Wheel of Fortune, the representation of the lessons you put on the agenda for this lifetime that you wanted to confront and master. This card shows up when there are patterns or themes that seem to appear in your life. These are the lessons that you have asked your higher self to bring you, and when you don’t master them, they stay on the wheel, and you run into them each time the wheel of life spins around and brings them to you. They are only removed when you have conquered them.
Does this make sense? I hope it was helpful.
