Reading for Everyone!
A client drew this spread yesterday, and I started laughing – not at the client, but at the cards.
It’s almost a universal reading for everyone on the planet, so I decided to post it with my interpretations. Feel free to give your (polite) alternative readings for the cards.
Significator (The Theme): Man of Cups – Surfer [King of Cups]
Staying on the surface, not willing to dive in and experience all that is available. Even though you have a safety line to the board, it’s still hard to get off and go deep.
Cross Card (What’s in the Way): 7 of Cups – Fear
Forgetting Everything’s All Right -or- False Evidence Appearing Real. The card stands for all those programs that got installed when you were a child, and they keep you from going out and doing what your heart desires. Safety line, remember?
What’s Above You (Conscious Awareness): Hierophant – The Teacher
You’ve walked an interesting path, so now you can share it. The answer to the question “Am I on the Right Path?” is always and forever YES. You cannot be on the wrong path; it’s impossible. Everything that happens in your life allows you experience to share with others. Unfortunately, human beings tend to only learn from pain, so those tend to weight the lesson plan heavily.
What’s Below You (Subconscious): Ace of Wands – Illumination
Ready for Enlightenment? Want the Answers to Life, the Universe, and Everything? You already have it all. Just ask…
What’s Behind You (Past Stuff): Sage of Cups – Regenerator [Knight of Cups]
(Note to veteran readers: due to an early training issue, my “Past Stuff” may be in a different place than you’re used to…)
Needing to find your Source, looking for support while you’re travelling your Path.
Where You Are Now: Balance [Justice]
As you look around, you notice that you’re exactly in the right place. It’s like when you find out there’s one less step at the bottom of a staircase, and you stumble a bit, and then you’re OK.
How Others See You: 3 of Cups – Love
The “community” card represents attracting people into your orbit to join you. You’ve got something they want: will you let them in?
Hopes and Fears: Universe [World]
What you really, really, really want is… Everything you ever asked for. What you’re really, really, really afraid of getting is…Everything you ever asked for. If you’ve got doubts about your “deservability,” now’s the time to drop them like a handful of hot coals. My guides say: “You all encapsulate yourself like pillbugs, encyst yourself like frogs in the desert, cut yourself off from the bounty of the Universe that is flowing toward you all the time. You behave as though the giving of the gifts is a hostile act, with huge strings attached. Open up and let it in – no strings, only Love!”
3-9 Month Forecast: Emperor
Go forth and take charge of your world! Plant the seeds of your greatness! Take the gifts the Universe offers, and use them!
