I wrote a rundown of this kind of reading in this post, if you have any questions that would be a good place to start.
Who I Was
The Seven of Cups represents illusion and deception. Basically, it’s Neptune at it’s worst. This is a malignant card, one I think would be easy for anyone to pull. Let’s be honest, we deceive ourselves constantly. About what we want, what makes us happy, or just the fact that we’re not. Happy, that is. Self-awareness is the best and most difficult freedom we can give ourselves. But, once we do, we can move on to what does make us contented and at peace.
Who I Am
The Four of Pentacles represents possession and control. It’s Smaug living his best life. I touched on this last week, but I’ll reiterate it here. Wealth doesn’t only come in the form of money and things, and we are misguided to think that way.
Who I Will Be
The Five of Pentacles represents sadness, worry, and illness. Mostly worry. Once again, I don’t think this is something anyone is immune to. With the state of the world, how can anyone not worry? We worry both about significant and insignificant things, meaning we deny ourselves peace and mental clarity. Worry, for me, is a compulsion as much as it is busy work. I can’t stop myself from doing it, and I don’t get anything done because of it. It’s a cycle that swings back around to a need for self-awareness. If you can control your reactions and actions, you can move forward.
I hope people see that, much like astrology, tarot weaves together to help you along the path your life will take. It’s meditative and a guide, for me. Much like church or praying for other people.
As always, thanks for reading and let me know what you think in the comments. Bye!
