P.O. 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 __________.” P.O. 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 P.O.’s feelings, emotions, relationships, and psychic abilities. Because there are no members of the Major Arcana, the context for these insights is P.O.’s everyday life rather than 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 Page of Pentacles, starting on the path to following your dream. You are allowing the light of your values to lead you and guide you in being consistent with your integrity. The only need for caution is not to get lost in the dream. Stay aware of your surroundings.
The spotlight is now on the ten of cups, the need for discernment as to with whom you will share. Whom will you include in your “inner circle?’ Who deserves to be part of the intimate group and share in the blessings and benefits? Don’t just throw away what you have to offer.
The spotlight is moving toward the nine of cups, wisdom and higher understanding of your feelings, emotions, relationships, and psychic abilities. You have accumulated a veritable treasure chest of those items. However, you have placed all of them on a shelf and turned your back on them. It is time to give, to share, to put one or more of them into play as you get up off the bench and continue on your path. You can still feel good about what you have to give. You’ve come a long way, Baby.
The summary card is the Knight of Swords,who has been told there is a dragon outside the castle. He (meaning you) grabs his sword, throws on his armor, jumps on his horse, and rides off in seventeen different directions at the same time. This scattering of your energies does not serve anyone well. Is there really a dragon? If so, is it your responsibility alone to slay it? Wouldn’t it make sense to plan some strategy before you expend all your energy, leaving yourself exhausted and vulnerable? You need to focus; think and plan before you act. Taken as a whole, this mii-reading acknowledges the pleasure and excitement you are experiencing being on your chosen path to mastery and asks you to do some thinking, feeling, and focussing on what you want, why you want it, how you want to feel having it, and the actions you are best advised to take to get there, stay there, and be of service to yourself and others.
Does this make sense? I hope it was helpful.
