The moment I looked at the cards I had drawn, I realised that this would be a profoundly enlightening reading
The first thing I noticed about the cards I had drawn was the adjacent Chalices in the first and second positions on my spread. This must tell me something important about the nature of the work that I will do with this tarot.
Then my attention was drawn to the absence of Orbs, which relate to Air and correspond to the more traditional models of the Rider-Waite clone decks. I perceived that my experiences with this deck would not be centred on the intellectual, logical aspects of my journey.
I have a seeker, a beginning, a learning experience no doubt. A card of loss in position five, a challenge perhaps. A Major Arcana card in the final position, an important outcome.
Tell me about yourself. What is your most important characteristic? 7 Chalices
An otherworldly staircase leads towards the stars. It is lined with glowing chalices of silver and gold, within which we see dreams, or perhaps illusions. The eternal light of the stars reflect upon these chalices. But we, in corporeal form, are not eternal. We must learn the lessons of this lifetime within its short span.
I know that this deck has important teachings to share about focus and intent. I also see that it has much to do with this time; an ephemeral though substantial spiral unfolds itself up the stairway to the stars, drawing the eye upward towards the highest treasured phantom image, which I am certain represents a connection to Spirit.
This card reminds me that I have many, so many lessons to learn and perhaps gifts to share. In order to unfold their untold treasures I must focus upon my highest ideals, for myself, those around me and for the greater good.
A feeling of safety and an overwhelming sense of love. I remember my childhood, its security, of never feeling alone. As we grow older, we recognise that these things are, perhaps, illusions in this physical manifestation, for ultimately we all must know loneliness, loss and fear in one way or another.
Looking at the star-children in this image, I know that I do, indeed, come from a greater family and I catch a glimpse of their timeless love, their enduring care and I know, with deep certainty that I shall know them again.
