Continuing with the readings suggested by Rachel Pollack in her book Tarot Magic. This reading is even more puzzling than usual. Part of it is that I am too close. It is on the two main qualities of the Empress, passion and nurturing and the effect they have on our lives. Comments are appreciated.
|1-What is my passion?||Page of Pentacles|
|2-How have I expressed it?||VI of Cups (reversed)|
|3-How can I express it more fully?||IX of Wands|
|4-What blocks me?||III of Pentacles (reversed)|
|5-What frees me?||VI of Pentacles|
|6-What do I nurture||10-Wheel of Fortune (reversed)|
|7-What does it ask of me?||IX of Cups|
|8-What does it give me?||Ace of Wands|
|9-How can I bring together my passion and my nurturance?||IV of Pentacles (reversed)|
What is my passion? Page of Pentacles-“A student or beginner in magic or any other area of learning. Fascination with something, without the need to do anything except follow the wonder of it” “Altenatively, grounding something real and solid” So I love to learn new things, yep, i enjoy creating
How have I expressed it? VI of Cups (rev)-“Letting go of the past, possibly a more honest look at families or other relationships; ..healing the memories of childhood” So i have expressed it by a continuous series of breaking things off from my past but have also been pretty good at putting that past into perspective
How can I express it more fully?IX of Wands-“Card of fulfilment; of energy, creativity excitement and inspiration; courage and strength in the situation” So i can learn more by creating and inspiring; helping others to create
What blocks me?III of Pent (rev)”Mediocre work; dissatisfaction, especially from conflicts or lack of opportunity; Failure to recognize the beauty of your normal life” So dissatisfaction in my normal life and not feeling like I am doing my best has been blocking me from both learning and creating?” or it is something that i need to go beyond?
What frees me? VI of Pentacles-“Partnership in work and other practical areas, Harmony in the workplace, charity, justice working out in people’s lives; Spirituality in daily life” Hmm so putting my ideals into practice; becoming a more spiritual person will help me to become more creative
What do I nurture?X-Wheel of Fortune (rev) “It also shows someone who begins the difficult process of self -examination; of learning to stop blaming bad luck for whatever disaster his or her life has become” So do I help others to see this? by talking? by example? At this point, I know that whatever good or bad is in my life, i have manifested it and it is what i need to grow, luck is not a part of it, and as far as blaming others, i manifested them in my life too. ;D
What does it ask of me? IX of Cups-“Focus on what is lasting and meaningful rather than what is lost or impermanent; something born out of imagination or powerful emotion” 😀 ;D
What does it give me? Ace of Wands-“Energy, life, health, copurage, forcefulness, simplicity, the very beginning of something exciting, enthusiasm”
How can I bring together my passion and my nurturance?IV of Pentacles(reverse)-“Lack of structure in daily life. Emotional vulnerability. Hesitation about helping others” Hmm I don’t believe that it is telling me to hesitate in helping others except that i need to learn how to help them–not give people the answers but help them find their own truth as i find mine”
