The Yule Spell Tarot Reading
You may or may not be interested in the tarot, but in case you are I thought I’d include the tarot reading I did on Sunday to give you an idea of how readings can contribute to your spells. Very briefly, the cards I pulled were:
Card 1 - What this year has taught me - The page of swords. To be careful of others, observe them closely if you don’t know them well. Dealing with them will need grace, goodwill and manners.
Card 2 - My weaknesses - 8 of wands. Not acting quickly enough and procrastinating instead of doing!
Card 3 - Next year in general - 4 of swords. A more peaceful year, not as fraught as last year (Music to my ears!!!) This time of rest will allow me to build strength.
Card 4 - 1st quarter of 2010 - 5 of wands. Shows inner struggles. I would expect this actually as it’s hard to make yourself change. We’re often set in our ways for a reason, it brings comfort on some level even if it is not good for you.
Card 5 - 2nd quarter - Ace of cups. Being creative and resourceful.
Card 6 - 3rd quarter - 7 of pentacles. Success will be around me by this time but I am not to start relaxing too early or resting on my laurels.
Card 7 - 4th quarter - Knight of pentacles. Determination but not stubbornness.
Card 8 - Where my strengths will grow - 9 of pentacles. Getting more organised, seeing success financially.
Card 9 - Where the hurdles will be - 4 of cups. Being too quick to give up when inevitable problems arise. Look for the positive signs of the situation however small.
Card 10 - How to overcome the hurdles - Hermit. Think it through, reflect, don’t just mope.
Card 11 - What new energies should I be prepared for - Judgement. Clarity when making decisions and increased speed of thought. New beginnings too - woohoo!!
Card 12 - Conclusion - 8 of pentacles. Work at it, it’s not all going to come at once.
This reading gave me some very helpful pointers. I wrote my statement of intent around sustained determination, increasing my output and not worrying about what can go wrong - not necessarily areas that I would have thought to include had I not done the reading. I’m now feeling extra excited and raring to go!
