In accordance with information from our psychic ability spread from the other night, I gave the new owners of the house next door (a convent at one point) a reading about their endeavor. Instead of doing a spread with a specific spread, I decided to just read the cards themselves with a more psychic approach. On a conscious level i knew the seller of the house was a pretty strange and negative person, but I got mostly clear energy from the house itself. Here’s the spread in a poorly lit photo: Going right to left the first card I threw down was the TWO OF CUPS. Complete relief! This house is the beginning of a wonderful new phase of my friends’ life together. The next card was THE ACE OF CUPS. Holy moly! There’s the house, so many possibilities indicated by the butterfly emerging from the basket. The house and the lovers coming together. THE QUEEN OF CUPS REVERSED comes next which feels like a tendency to get lost in days dreams, fantasies, possibilities and choices rather than following a practical path — this is something to keep under control. A slow and steady course of action comes across in the 3 OF CUPS REVERSED, one that is supported by the 7 OF COINS. Carefully spent money will grow and thrive like the tree —- the symbols of venus and mars in the branches above show the progression of the lovers over time. THE THREE OF WANDS is a meeting of minds (or meeting of my friends w/ the house), consideration, taming of inspiration into very real ideas. Aside from a penchant for daydreaming, this feels like an excellent move. The house has a voice, too.
Reading the Tarot is its own thing, but when you’re at a social gathering and meet someone new you’ll probably start to read them on your own. At times, I get all kinds of “psychic” narratives from people only to find out I was outrageously off base (it happened this weekend at a pancake breakfast!) It’s too easy to confuse what could be a psychic message with simply reading a book by its cover. We put our minds together at our tarot meeting this week and came up with this 6-card spread to help hone our psychic abilities. What blocks my psychic abilities? How can I open up my psychic abilities? What should I focus on / what is the doorway? How to do I protect myself? How do I differentiate psychic messages from personal stuff? What do I do with the information once I get it? We used this spread to read each person in the room last night using THE HERMETIC TAROT by Godfrey Dowson and the information we got was pretty specific! The photo below shows my spread. What blocks my psychic abilities? 2 OF CUPS REVERSED. We all seemed to agree this is referring to my defense mechanisms going up when I meet someone new. This defense mechanism projects my fears onto other people, so basically I’m just reading myself. I need to approach people with love, compassion, and openness — if I don’t like what I’m getting I can walk away or tune it out. How can I open up my psychic abilities? THE HIGH PRIESTESS. As the card of the moon, passivity, patience, and reflection I get a strong sense that I need to be more of an instrument and less of a musician when receiving psychic communications. These messages should ultimate pass through me just as the rays of the Moon reflect upon the Priestess. Don’t let the conscious mind muddle them up. What should I focus on / what is the doorway? 10 OF WANDS / LORD OF OPPRESSION. This one had us all stumped for a little while probably because the message was so simple. I need to bring my own oppression, fear and suffering into focus so that I can let them go. If I know what oppresses me, I won’t be able to project it onto others. How can I protect myself? 6 OF […]
