its in the cards

last christmas, Beloved gave me two tarot decks. both were unexpected, both were not decks i'd pick up on my own. but both are decks i've come to enjoy, and the one deck - the DruidCraft tarot - has become one of my favorite decks to use to read for myself.

it's difficult to read for myself, i find - i know im blind to me, and sometimes i find more confusion in the cards than clarity. i find trusting in spirit to provide what i need - including answers is actually easier than trying to discern any truth i might find in the tarot.

and yet... the pictures are so pretty, the images so compelling, so... thought-provoking. and so this morning, i said, "why not?"

i drew seven cards completely at random as i shuffled,and this is the order in which they fell. i welcome any insights any Gentle Readers may wish to share, because this is what i think is only the first part of a spread i'll have to meditate on a long time:

the nine of wands
the tower
the lovers
the sun
the wheel
the six of wands
the four of swords.

the first thing i notice is how much the figure in the four of swords reminds me of myself.

and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.

I know nothing about Tarot cards, but all the cards except the Tower card involve action of some kind, lovers, wands, wheel, sun, etc. I've noticed from your posts recently (which are a just sliver of your life) that there is alot of relationship change afoot in your world. I hope this helps, I am here for you, dear friend.

I wish I understood Tarot cards so I could assist, but alas, that is not my forte. I seem to be someone who senses things before they happen (i.e I dream it, journal it and then it happens).

But I do hope the cards are positive for you...

I too do not read Tarot, although my father has read them for nearly 40 years. Maybe that's why I don't, actually. I've never needed to read them because he does. :)

I just wanted to say that I've been following your blog via my reader, and thus rarely leave comments. I feel compelled to let you know that you've been in my thoughts as these dramas have unfolded. I wish you an open mind and heart to see the path before you more clearly.

Hugs and best wishes~ Amanda
