The other day I was searching my phone for some of my photography, when I stumbled across a screenshot of a tarot spread. Because I don’t usually keep them on my phone I clicked to take a closer look.
Now I don’t generally do readings via text etc. I had obviously taken the time to do an in-depth Reading. As I took a closer look I could see I had written my interpretation of the cards. I’m always doing things I say I won’t and here’s a perfect example. I don’t like ‘predicting’ I’m not a mystic (although if I say so myself I do love that stereotype and would love to own a crystal ball). I read cards, what’s the difference? I hear you say! I see my purpose as to offer guidance and support in terms of how the card’s flow, energy and interconnection to each other. I have, however, learned there often is a predictive element to the read, but that’s not my focus and if I read for you it shouldn’t be yours either. Remember, it’s the journey not the destination and the soul’s lessons aren’t always pleasant.
I’m often clear and always say, I can’t see the future, after all I’m not clairvoyant.
On this occasion, the person was known to me, and so I attempted to address their concerns as best I could. And if I remember correctly, there was a much wished for desire for a child and they were vexed by no pregnancy. As, I say, I knew this person, but even so, I was clearly uncomfortable at addressing such a question. My comfort level sits with addressing the spiritual aspect. How can you remove your focus from the outcome? How can you feel more content with what you have? That sort of thing. Being a mother of four beautiful girls I can hardly imagine the pain of not fulfilling your desire of completing your family.
Anyway, that was the question, would there be a child soon? And if there was, would it be a girl or boy? Now you can feel that pressure can’t you, I’m a tarot reader, not a fortune teller, I trust what’s laid out in front of me, but I want the information provided to be constructive. If this had been a stranger, or someone I’d never read for, I most certainly would have declined to answer and offered a more holistic approach in terms of how they may manage their anxiety in relation to this.
Anyway, enough of my conflicts. Following the discovery of this old screenshot, I sent it to the said person saying “Wow! Look what I’ve found! What do you think? do you mind me using this for feedback?” My turn for many questions!
This was the layout and my response:
This is one of the reasons I love Tarot. Despite, using this tool daily, it never fails to amaze me, how accurate it can be. Obviously. At the time of the reading, neither I nor the querrant have any idea how accurate it actually was. Sometimes only time proves that. The response to this is below!
One of my other posts is about which tarot cards can indicate pregnancy. You can carry out your own readings on this matter. I’ll call the Stalk to deliver the news, I don’t want to be involved it’s more than I can cope with!
