The Deck: Green Witchcraft Tarot The Cards: The Battle Wagon — reversed; The Sidhe; 2/pentacles
Someone is going no where fast, and you seem to be the individual the universe has chosen to set this someone right. (lucky you) While they are charging through life, barrelling along at breath taking speed towards a predictable crash, you may feverishly be working behind the scenes to manifest a right outcome for them, even though they seem to be oblivious, or don’t much care. There is the distinct feeling that your interference will be met with resentment and passionate resistance. Ignore this, do it anyway. In the end — when their eyes are finally open to reality, or they see a positive outcome through you — they will be grateful. For now, they will be a brat.
Catalyst... a person or thing that precipitates an event.
At the time I taped this video, I was recovering from a seasonal bug that was going around. I was still exhausted and didn’t feel good on many levels, but I wanted to do a video so bad that I went ahead with it.
The result are several strange clips of weird readings strung together. I felt so frustrated, but I continued reading after reading, until the last reading I did, the final three cards, gave us the main point of this whole thing. But what I didn’t realize until I put it all together, is that all of those seemingly “disjointed” readings, when I felt so tired and disconnected, were all actually leading to the climax.
As it so often happens, this reading mirrors the written reading I did this morning for our Daily Cards. It’s kind of eerie when that happens, but it just tells us that there is a definite energy and vibe that needs expressing. Here’s a link to that reading, those daily cards, at my blog: https://everycathasatale.blogspot.com…
Just a heads up… the Queen/pentacles at first appears oblivious and complacent about what’s going on around her. She is not. She had me fooled too, until I pulled that last batch of cards. Don’t underestimate her. If you’re lucky, she just doesn’t care. And if you’re not so lucky… well.
It looks like there’s been one too many “forks in the cake”, and what a pretty scrumptious cake it looks, but there are times when sharing is frowned upon. This is one of them. The three of swords unabashedly proclaims three-way relationships that usually result in expected ramifications. In this case, you’ve had your time to mourn a loss, lick the wounds of betrayal, and put a pox upon a liar. But now it’s time to let all that go.
Take a deep breath…
Now it’s time to focus on yourself, your inward spiritual self, your centered mental self, and the glorious physical self that encompasses it all. Grab your knapsack and head to the spa, the hairstylist, your favorite clothing store. Buy new makeup, buy new shoes, and get to marching down that new path with purpose, your path, a direction that you’ve chosen for yourself. Embrace determination and intent with a healthy dose of ego. Yes, to paraphrase a makeup commercial, “You’re worth it.”
All of this positive action, intention, and thought will manifest something new and fascinating. It will put before you an opportunity, or an individual, that will be quite a surprise. Own it.
(The Cards: Surrender; Joy; Divine Support; Inner Knowing; Insight; Fulfillment)
When you finally learn how to surrender — expectations, apprehension, anxiety, negative thoughts, or any of the many personal demons that may be holding you back, you will find room for accomplishment, success, love, creativity, and… joy.
You already know, yes, you really do, what it is you need to surrender. That little voice in your head has most likely been whispering this knowledge to you for years. You also instinctively know what it is you need to do to succeed and find fulfillment. But knowing what we need to let go of, and knowing what we need to do to achieve a goal is very different from actually letting go and doing. Sometimes we have to work ourselves up to this point.
As you make this journey of surrender and achievement, one of many journeys you will make in your life, know that you have support and encouragement not only from family, friends, or a loving partner, but from the universe and Spirit as well. As solitary as we may feel and life may seem, we’re never really walking this path alone.
The tarot deck, Green Witch Tarot, has been requested for our reading today.
(7/wands; King/chalices; Queen/wands — reversed)
This king and queen are wary of each other, probably in opposition at one time, as though there’s been a lot of water under the bridge. The barriers and boundaries that were put up in the past, for protection and self-preservation, may be slowly dismantled now.
Extra cards: (All reversed: Ace/pentacles; 4/chalices; 3/athames; 2/pentacles)
One of you will step forward with an offer, an apology, or a unique opportunity, which will be a surprise. But the question is, will this contact out-of-the-blue be accepted? There may be some trepidation and hesitation at the sudden appearance and peace offering, probably with good cause. There was heartache, betrayal, and estrangement here and once, long ago, choices were made.
What’s our Tarot Forecast have to say for today? (6/cups — your past; The Moon — secrets and deception; The Hermit — inner contemplation) ~
Nostalgic memories may be playing on your mind, invading mundane daily thoughts, creeping up on you when you least expect it. For someone, there’s a secret you’ve been keeping all these years that will finally be exposed; and for others, there is a secret that will be revealed to you. Either way, you’ll need some solitary time to process the ramifications and fall out from it.
Two more cards for this…(8/swords — reversed; Death) ~
Both scenarios will bring a sense of release and relief, a new-found feeling of freedom. And both scenarios will wipe the slate clean, giving everyone a chance for a fresh start.
(I taped this reading in a tent with both ends open on the west side of our house. The 45 to 50 mph wind gusts were awesome, and the energy was amazing!!)
Someone has a lot on their plate, burning the candle at both ends, busy and involved with two very separate and demanding roles in their life. To add to it all, you might have feelings of self-doubt about your ability to carry this off, and you also might have someone, possibly two people, who are contributing to these feelings with their criticism and complaints. And the saga continues…
Someone is getting a second chance, and it looks like there is the very real possibility of them blowing it. Second chances have come up a lot for my readings the last week or so, but this is different. This individual risks losing everything if they can’t get it together and figure things out.
You are very tired of fighting something… what? — other people’s expectations? pressure to conform? personal demons? Give it a rest, put it down. Be still and focus. There’s a decision right before you that you may not have realized is even an option… Choose, make a decision. Once you do, life and all it’s jigsaw pieces will fall into place.
