Two One-Card Readings for K

April 7, 2008 § 4 Comments

Deck: Goddess Tarot (same one we used previous)
Querent: friend (K)
Reading was done by myself after she specified the topics and asked for two one-card readings. I emailed her the responses, hence the links.

Topic: plans to go to Korea, in general
Card: Tradition (Juno)/High Priest/Hierophant Reversed
I’m interpreting this as you’re going about plans because you should, because something tells you this is the right course, when it might not be. Tradition, following, or looking to authority for answers is not the best course of action.
Standard interpretation
Interpretation of reversed

Topic: K’s April
Card: King of Staves/Wands
Take initiative, make your own path of ambition and own it.
Standard Interpretation

Reading for Self: Going to China

February 5, 2008 § Leave a comment

Deck: Llewellyn Tarot
Date: 2/4/08 Tuesday
Time: started 11pm
Spread: question string
Querent: self

Q: 3 cards about my plan to teach in China this year (vs. next year):
9 of Swords / King of Swords / 2 of Cups RV

I was really taken aback by this spread. I expected to see something mixed, or to see some distinct advantages over going sooner, but this paints a very grim picture of things. The 9 of Swords points to mourning, probably grief over being separated from B; the 2 of Cups RV builds on that, pointing to trouble between B and I, most likely due to the stress of a long distance relationship. The King of Swords reminds me of B at his coldest. He is always a sword person, cutting through the crap and seeing what is there, and saying bluntly what is there too. I think this definitely points to my year revolving around my relationship with B and troubles that might arise. (Note: King of Swords also came up in a spread about whether or not I would get a job last summer.)

Spread: (on-the-spot) Two Paths
Querent: Self

Spread: Two Paths
This spread was created on-the-spot while shuffling the deck and figuring out which spread would work best for this query.
1——4
2–7–5
3——6

1, 2, and 3 describe the first situation. 4, 5, and 6 describe the alternative situation. 7 represents the root of the situation, an important factor in the outcome.

Reading
If I get the job: Emperor (Bran), 9 of Wands RV, Page of Pents
If I don’t get the job: 3 of Swords, 9 of Pents RV, Ace of Swords
Root of situation: King of Swords

(This spread came with the Llewellyn Tarot.)

—–3———-
–2—-4——-
1——–5—-7
————6—
(It’s supposed to be the shape of a curved dragon.)

  1. The Dream: your heart’s desire
  2. Your Companions: the assistance you will receive
  3. The Journey: unfamiliar places you must go to realize the dream
  4. Magical Gifts: new skills required for success
  5. The Enchantment: hidden obstacles along the path
  6. The Dragon: what you must befriend, sacrifice, or defeat ((or defend))
  7. The Awakening: the final outcome of your efforts

Spread: Llew’s Spread (Llewellyn Tarot)

March 20, 2007 § Leave a comment

(This comes from the Llewellyn Tarot, but I think it needs some adapting, even though it’s a good start.)

—3—
2-1-4
—5—

  1. Sun: Always place the sun card in the center. This card brings the hidden aspects of the situation to light.
  2. Dawn: Represents the situation that is manifesting.
  3. Noon: Represents the issues that cannot be ignored.
  4. Dusk: Represents the help you will receive.
  5. Midnight: Represents the resolution of the situation.

If anything, my first instinct is to reverse the meaning of the second two places. Midnight seems more like help, or perhaps in that position it could be an issue that is being ignored or that is not being seen (in contrast to the obvious noon-position issue), whereas Dusk seems more like the resolution part.
