Due to the horrific events of last week, I honestly was feeling up to doing a reading or posting. Today I am back with a reading that is certainly a reflection of some of those events.
In the first row we see the Star, the Eight of Wands and Death. The Star is about hopes and dreams, it’s the light at the end of the tunnel and faith that all will be well. This is a good card to show up for us at this time. It is one thing to have hope but hope must be acted upon in order for real change to occur. This is what I see in the Eight of Wands and Death. Eight of Wands is a card of swift action and communication. Open communication is key to bringing a swift conclusion which we see when the Eight of Wands and the Death card occur together. This is a time of transition and change, the cycle must come to an end so that we can bring birth to new beginnings. The Star is telling us that now is the time to open our hearts and to give generously.
In the middle we have the King of Swords and the Five of Coins. The King of Swords is a wise, ethical and moral leader. He wields a sword of Justice. He acts swiftly, decisively, and with honor and integrity. He holds those around him to the highest honor and speaks the truth. Now is the time to BE honorable BE truthful, and BE ethical in actions and decisions. He works against corruption and dishonesty.
The Five of Coins represents hard times, material and possibly spiritual setbacks. Needs are not being met, there is a feeling of insecurity and struggle and now is the time to take action to examine the problem to find solutions. This is the role of the King of Swords, he does not shirk away from examining problems to find solutions. He is a man of calculated, swift action.
The Six of Coins is at the bottom. This is a shadowy card, on the surface it looks like it might be about charity, having enough to share and be charitable, but it’s also about balance, and even more so, it’s about power and who holds power. This card indicates inequity between haves and have nots. In the middle row we see the “have nots” knocking at the door, the Six of Coins reflects a generous spirit, wanting to share, but there is still the matter of who holds the wealth?
These are definitely issues that as the King of Swords indicates, need to be confronted with complete clarity and honesty.
