Last night I was reading tarot in bed and pulled all four Aces. Now that doesn’t happen everyday, has only happened to me once that I can remember, in my readings for myself. I have been reading tarot for 27 years.
I learn the most by reading for myself and seeing how the cards play out in my life. I find it the best way to be exact in readings with others because I am so familiar with the energies on a personal level.
Last nights reading reminded me of an old friend of mine that had kids…I stayed with them for awhile in between living arrangements. Her boys were young – squirming in their chairs, slurping noodles, making faces, and rocking back in their seats. I often heard her exclaim, “Four on the floor !” meaning chair legs down, sit still and eat now !
Steady as she goes, Captain.
All four Aces will bring fresh new creative energies in all phases of life.
Aces are the pure, raw, initial outgoing energy of the suit – Cardinal energy ! New things are on their way… !
Wands = Fire, creative energy and inspiration
Pentacles= Earth, skill sets and building on the material plane
Swords= Air, intellect, communications, socializing
Cups= Water, emotions, intuition, compassion
Reading tarot is like reading natal charts – identify the predominant energies, and how are they operating and where. Tarot card placement in a spread is just as important as planetary placements. How do the cards blend, how do the planets work together..?
Once I was astonished at the number of wands in my spread, almost all of them were. Soon thereafter, I had news that brought on a bit of a panic. (Luckily, wands energy moves quickly, it soon passed.)
One sad day before work, I drew the Death card covered by the Empress. I went to work only to have my boss tell me a good friend had died. I knew the couple and was close friends with them both, and their kids. I drew a card to help comfort my girlfriend after her husband had passed – a message from him, if he could – and pulled the 2 of Cups. That was so perfect, and tarot is right on the money, just like astrology.
The Page of Wands means a good message – incoming or outgoing depending on the placement in the spread.
Right before my lunch, I drew the Ace of Wands in the final card position.
Creative energy !
Now made manifest !
