Tarot Mysteries: Ghost Reading

I decided, one snowy afternoon in February, to try something new with my tarot cards.  I set myself up with The Goddess tarot deck and a ouija board as my table and invited a spirit who had passed over to come forward and communicate with me through the cards.  The idea of doing this had come to me after I used a pendulum earlier that day to ask if there was a spirit in the room with me…the pendulum had said ‘yes’; and I wanted to know more. 

Ghost Reading

Prince/swords     7/cups ®     Oppression

The first card, the Prince, gives the impression of sharp objects– perhaps someone who worked with knives or some other sharp cutting tools, or machinery of this nature; a difficult life– a string of bad luck; a series of unfortunate events/messages/relationships.  Also…something that is held close to the heart– whatever this might be, this individual, even in death, feels affection or love for someone or something that is intense.  Whatever this bond was in life, it is so strong that death can’t break it. 

Decisions to make, several of them, leading to a period of confusion, possible mental overload, or an individual suffering from mental issues.  This person may have been in an unconscious state, a coma, or a state of mental dementia for some time before they passed. 

Death for this individual came as a welcome release from mental anguish.  At death, this individual experienced the sensation of ‘awakening’ upon passing over, finding themselves in a totally unfamiliar place on the other side, although initially confusing, I don’t feel it was a negative experience.

I’m also picking up a ‘mirror image’.  A double– perhaps a twin.  The energy of this spirit feels male, and I don’t believe that this person was into their elderly years when they passed.  I feel that they were probably middle-aged when they crossed over.

Do you recognize this spirit?
