In this few examples I want to show the energy/emotion of the reading in different spreads. Sometimes the feeling in you is larger than words, and as they say “A picture is worth a thousand words”. So here is also a visual boost to the explanation of the spreads.
Note: this are just some of interpretations of the spreads, IT IS NOT NECESSARILY to always mean in direction that is here explained. It all depends of nature of the querent question, deck and other cards that may also be in spread.
We here have Four of Cups, The Sun reversed and Eight of Cups.
Be aware that we deal with fire and water here. Action and reaction. Lots of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces energy combine with Leo. Planets Sun, Neptune sometimes Jupiter, Mars and Pluto.
Nature of Cups is always emotion, Major Arcana SUN represents action, attention, achieved goals, when reversed it may be telling about disappointments, lack of interests etc.. 4 of Cups is telling us about contemplation, daydreaming..8 of Cups about disillusionment, sadness, resignation…
When this cards appear in this order we may assume that situation is dissatisfaction, sadness, always wanting more, but there is maybe not enough will, energy and skill to do so.
This comic explains it perfectly:
What can you do to solve this situation: Stop for a second, see what you already have, practise gratitude, give love to people around you. Sometimes selfishness can put you in this position of “needing too much”. When you want too much, you forget about things you already have. Instead of being a little whiny needy ass, pull yourself together and think about things you can achieve on your own, and start acting, stop thinking and indulging your imaginary needs for god’s sake, there is no gain in self pity and no one can help you feel complete but yourself.
Here we have Five of Wands, Two of Cups reversed and major The Devil, well it is pretty obvious what is going on here, so RUN as fast as you can 😀
Energys here are disrupted, we have earth element with Capricorn and Saturn in The Devil card, Sagittarius and Leo in the 5 of Wands, Jupiter and Sun are expanding tension here, then Two Of Cups with Scorpio, Cancer and Virgo and Moon, Pluto and Mars, all that reversed-big disharmony and actual poison-this card reversed can be easily portrayed by Romeo and Juliet. So, yeah, you get the picture.
What can you do to solve this situation: Just like picture above says, you are in toxic relationship, it is very important to acknowledge that. Sometimes people are long in some relation, and forcing themselves to change, to adapt and what not, but that is not the key. After you finally realize that it’s not you that is problem, but relationship itself, then it’s time to GO. Here in this spread we can see fighting and screaming, obsession and habit, opposing energies which are creating agitation, harshness, obstacles and shows a need to sort things out and to unify- but the whole cause is in vain, because this ship has already sailed, long, long time ago NO ONE CAN REMEMBER.
Here we have 10 of Wands, five of Swords and 7 of Cups. You know that song “we had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun”, well you don’t have it anymore and it’s very questionable that you have actually had it.
And it’s for the best. Uranus and Sun energy with Leo in 10 of Wands indicate that you are overburdened with responsibilities and commitments, it is time to think about yourself. Than 5 of Swords with strong Venus+Mercury energy combined with Taurus and and Virgo, with the sprinkle of Jupiter tells you that is the time for changes and of ups and downs, it may be indicating a victory or achievement which has been well-deserved and long-awaited through some kind of separation. The story of Neptune and Jupiter energy of Pisces and Sagittarius in 7 of Cups is implying that several opportunities will present themselves and it is time to prioritize what you want and it is time to stop build castles in the air.
What can you do to solve this situation: Situation here is solved actually. You deserve better, it was hard and boring and tough. You have potential for something better. It is important to move fast, don’t dwell in too much thinking, it is time to flush! The sooner the better, ASAP, Fast Forward, no time for delay! You will be grateful to your self as soon as you end this burden on your back, you may be perceived a bit sassy and bitchy, but it is your turn to be like that, enjoy the ride, don’t cry over the spilled milk, cause that milk was full of hormones, and water anyway, find your organic milk or try almond, soy, you name it 😉
