Greetings everyone! It feels like it’s been a long time since posting. Life is always so busy! Well, it feels good to be back!
Today we have a reading for someone who just feels trapped in the wheel going round and round!
On the top row we have the Four of Wands, the Knight of Wands, The Eight of Swords and the Wheel. The Four of Wands is often about trying to break free from an oppressive situation, seeking freedom and cutting loose. As you can see from this card in the Legacy of the Divine Tarot, that things my look good from the outside but underneath things are maybe not so fine and dandy. See how the top is green and lush but under the ground it is dark and scary. The Knight of Wands represents fast movement either metaphorically or physically. There is a real feeling of needing to move away and get out. The Eight of Swords is about the feeling of entrapment. The thing is with this card is that with the blindfold, you might feel like you have no options, but really you do. Often entrapment is in your own mind and you need to remove the blindfold in order to think more clearly. The Wheel is about the ups and downs of life. This is a karmic situation and nothing ever remains static. Things are in the process of changing.
In the middle row we have the Queen of Pentacles, The King of Swords and the Nine of Cups. This couple seem to have it all in this Nine of Cups. With the Nine of Cups there is bounty but a feeling of not having anyone to share it with.
In the next row we have the Emperor and the Eight of Wands. The Emperor represents the establishment. Perhaps it is time for some mediation. The Eight of Wands is about communication and things happening quickly. Messages being sent and received.
On the bottom we have the Five of Swords. This is about discord with an “us vs them” mentality, power plays and acting in self-interest. There is victory here, but at what cost? Think hard before taking action.
