Thanks for the compliments, and for drawing me a card, Woody. Much appreciated.
I've been scouring the boards, but haven't been participating too often on threads. Just keeping a keen eye on the patterns, adding to the "reef"
and waiting to see where ATS consciousness is headed to. With the advent of Summer Solstice just around the corner, and energy on the rise I imagine
that I will be more and more active on the boards until Autumnal Equinox sets in.
Spot on interpretation of the traditional meaning for the Ace of Cups. And, obviously, also pertinent to myself right now. Excluding the overload of
information I'm taking in night-to-night by scouring the ATS boards, I have been stretching myself a bit thin when it comes to understanding "the
big picture" lately.
Seeing as I have this weekend off from my job, and now taking your card into account, I think I will cast aside my spiritual obligations, and focus on
relaxing and unwinding for a bit. Let the waters settle. That might be just the thing I need to set myself back on track.
Inspired by your thread here, I thought I would dust off my old deck too. Since you gave me a reading, I thought I might return the favor by giving
you a reading as well. Hope you don't mind
I don't have visual images of my deck on my computer anywhere, but, being an experienced cartomancer yourself, I'm sure you'll know the cards with,
or without a visual aid. For you I drew The Seven of Wands
which is the Lord of Valour
I draw my interpretations from the Theosophic Qabala, so, my apologies if that's not where your training comes from. In the Qabalist scheme the 7 of
Wands refers to the powers of the sphere Netzach
enabled by the spiritual plane Atziluth
Netzach is the sphere of natural stimulation: it brings about happiness, joy, enthusiasm, and stronger, deeper connections with the people in our
lives whom we value and keep in high regards. So, on one front keep an eye out for opportunities to spend time with friends, family, and loved ones.
Make new friends, inspire people to advance in their own lives, and be a light to guide them through hard times. This energy will then be folded back
into you (through the sphere of Hod) as wisdom, understanding, and new insights.
Atziluth is the plane of emanations, divine sparks, and subtle archetypal forms/forces. Netzach, being the realm of natural beauty, represents the
gods of old: natural beings who operate through metaphorical actions (storm gods, crop deities, solar gods, etc). So, pay close attention to dreams,
day-dreams, and impulses you experience in the coming few days. You may be in the process of uncovering what long-mysterious symbols in your life
It's also a good time to prepare those Litha feasts... perchance the Pan and Cernunnos of our Great Forests will be joining you this mid-summer's
Thanks again for the reading!
