Written during a waning moon in the sign of Aquarius on a day ruled by Venus
Today as I chose my card of the day, I found that I had discussed it already so I chose another card, but again, I had already discussed that card as well. By the time I was finished, 4 cards had appeared and so spake the tarot. Today I will layout the mini-spread of the day instead of one card.
Here are the cards in the order they were chosen:
The Emperor appeared first and I rejected it immediately, knowing I had spoken of it before. The Emperor is not a negative card but it's one I don't really relate to, as I seem to always look at the darker side of this card which speaks to control, sternness, authority, a stern authority figure.
And this is why multiple cards are almost always necessary in order to read the situation correctly. So I kept The Emperor and chose a few other cards to support it and to continue the story.
The Next card is The Devil. When you compare these two cards, you see that The Emperor is not so bad after all. The Emperor is instructing me to take control, and not to become attached to the influence/control of others. This combination also suggests that there is no need to be attached or governed by others and that to do so at this point would be my option, one that would likely greatly limit the vast possibilities in life.
The Sun shows the progression, should I banish The Devil. This is the dawning of a brand new day , a rebirth, a new start. The sunflowers indicate success, the child, unbridled enthusiasm, the wild horse, the influence of spirit and of course, the sun lighting the way.
And finally, the Page of Swords appears with his walking-stick wand ready to embark on a new journey, a solo one, controlled only by his own passion, directed by his dreams, and fueled by his sense of adventure.
