Okay… I’m bored… How about a reading!!!

I will stick with my standard three card spread. What shall the question be?

How can I better get along with my step dad?

The Hanged Man, Judgement, The Tower…

 

On the surface… this kinda looks like our relationship. We silently accepted each other, we are okay right now (Its not always like this), And a huge fight is never too far away.

The Hanged Man- Silent acceptance

Judgement- A call of some sort (maybe me actually seeking to make our relationship better)

The Tower- To break through, we must break down… maybe its the barriers that we have both put up, maybe its just a fight that will make us realize that he have just be cruel to each other in the past.

 

Answer- To get a better relationship with my step dad, we need to sit down and air out all of our difference, this might lead to a fight but in the end we might just be the better for it.

 

My Year Ahead Spread- Birth month to Birth month

So I came up with my own spread, no one elses was really appealing to me, there may be one out there just like it, if you find it tell me and I will like it here. Thank you.

Picture a clock: the numbers going around the clock and in the center the two hands. The hands are 1 and 2 in our spread. The numbers start in the 1 position on the clock face but will actually be card three of our spread. If you would like to see a picture of it, tell me and Ill will do a really nice picture of it.

Position meanings

  1. Me this year
  2. My goal/ambition this year
  3. September ( My birthday is actully in August but it is at the end so I start with the next month, if yours is at the beginning I don’t see why you couldn’t keep your birth month in this position. And it is what ever your birth month/one after is.
  4. October
  5. November
  6. December
  7. January
  8. February
  9. March
  10. April
  11. May

I’m hopeful for the year to come. How would you interpret this?

Oh My Wow moment/reading

Okay, I’m just learning to read, as you know if you regularly check my blog/follow it and get updates. Here is a little back story of me. I’m 23, recently got married, am happy, and want to start a family with my amazing husband. Back story over. I often read for myself and my family because I don’t have an abundance of friends and family who want me to read for them. So I have wanted to start a family and was reading up on how to phrase questions to get better answers and to take control of my life and not make it sound like I am leaving it up to fate.

Question- I would really like to start a family with my husband. How can I change and/or better prepare myself for this wonderful blessing to come into my life?

Answer- 7 of Cups – (LWB) Precious gifts are offered to you all the time, but you may not fully appreciate them. Take stock of what you already have before you seek more. So, basically, be happy with what I have right now. It will happen eventually. Duh, Becka!

Fair Lights Tarot (Getting to know the new deck)

Omgosh, the pictures in this deck are so pretty. The contrast of light and dark cards are just amazing in this deck.

How I ask questions and get set up- I start by taking three deep breathes, in through my nose, out through my mouth. I take the deck out of the box and begin to shuffle. I pick up the deck with my right hand and drop them into my left hand, so that they don’t get bent by shuffling. I ask the question as I am shuffling and the card that falls out is the one that I’m supposed to read. I feel like it is the deck throwing the card in my face.

 

Questions

 

1. What kind of deck are you?

10 of Swords- The path you are considering is to fraught with challenges. Accept defeat and find another solution. Well this is awkward ( it was a birthday present and not something I would have normally picked for myself). Is he (the deck) saying that I need to give up on him or that he is the other solution.

2. What card sums up your personality?

King of Swords- One who may seem stern and forbidding but whose judgement is always fair and whose authority benefits his community. Hmm, not quite sure what to think of this card most of the kings actually kinda scare me in this deck.

3. In what issues do you specialize?

9 of wands- Working with others will allow you to accomplish much more than you would on your own but at some sacrifice to your autonomy and control.  I came to the realization the other day, I don’t always work well with others, its not that we don’t get along is just that I don’t like having someone telling me that I’m wrong just because its not how they would do it.

4. How can you best help me?

Queen of Swords- One who shares the brilliant clarity of her mind but protects her heart with a certain reserve and caution. I am usually someone who guards their heart, that was, until I met my husband, since then it has been all out there in the open. Maybe I should start to do that again.

5. What quality is best in a reader?

King of Wands- One who inspires loyalty through his fair-mindedness and his willingness to adapt to the changing times. So, someone who is flexible, not totally set in their ways.

6. How do you see our relationship?

5 of wands- Your wild nature longs for release. Honor your instincts and trust their guidance. My wild nature… hmmm. I know I can be a little crazy sometimes but wild… 

Photo dump August 30th 0277. What card do you want to show me?

8 of Disks- Get ready for your future by throwing away regrets, blame and disappointment. Surround yourself with positive expectations. I’m excited for my future. I don’t know what it holds but it is probably somewhere I haven’t been before.

8. (I normally just do seven questions but with this deck I decided to try an eight, to just see its point of view.) How do you see me?

4 of Wands- Pay attention to your ethical choices, do not take credit for someone elses achievements or try to pass off their work as your own.  So, it sees me as a credit stealer… how nice for me. hmmm.

What do you think of this deck and its cards for me? Mistress Morrigan1? Hipster chic?

I personally feel that this is a deck of action. All the swords and the wands!

Reading #3

photo (1)Okay, so as I was shuffling, my birthday came to mind. My birthday is at the end of this month, and while I know that it can’t be a complete reading, considering that I’m not using all of the cards. This is what I got The Wheel of Fortune (past), The Hanged Man(present), The High Priestess (Future).

There has been change over the past year, (which is true, I got married, I became a foster aunt, I got a new job.) I currently am waiting for something to happen. ( I have been waiting for the next part of my life to happen.) I can’t know what is going to happen in the future, but as I live it I will understand. (So, true)

 

Okay, someone once told me you should never read for yourself because you are biased, So, what do you think? What do you get from this reading?

 

Reading #2

Okay, so far I have learned 11 cards. So I thought I would do a few “practice” readings, just with the cards I have learned so far. The first one will be a one card draw asking “What do the cards have for me today?” Then I will do a three card reading for a fake situation of wanting a promotion at work. Let’s see what we get.

 

One card – Strength- Calm control that soothes the situation.

What I got from this is that I need to remain calm today and be in control of the situation no matter what happens.

Three card spread- (R)* The Hermit, The Chariot, The Hierophant

Past – (R) The Hermit-  withdrawal

Present – The Chariot-A need to move forward being impeded by circumstances.

Future- The hierophant- Living in a way that brings our faiths and beliefs to life.

What I get from this reading is that you need to stop worrying about it, let it go. Your worry is holding you back from actually getting what you want. You should follow the philosophy of ‘fake it till you make it’.

I think this person will get the promotion he wants… maybe not this time but it will come along, when it is meant to be.

*= (R) means Reversed. I know we haven’t mentioned this yet, but we will use it in this reading and later ill cover more of the reversed meanings.

What do you think of my interpretation? What did you get from it.
