POSITION 1 – PAST
This position represents the past where the situation originated.
THREE OF PENTACLES – Success. You may find that you are now being praised for your achievements, encouraged with your projects and rewarded for your efforts
As a result of this you will feel extra confident and your self esteem will be high.
Others may start to notice your success and word of your skills and talents may spread, you have made a name for yourself and can now enjoy respect and admiration
POSITION 2 – PRESENT
The present situation.
STRENGTH – This card is centered on character and the ability to rise above emotions and desires. Once we learn how to control the emotions we then have to learn to rise above them and apply something more.
This is an extension of the self and the lesson of what we received from the Chariot. We must now use fortitude and patience to receive the desired outcome that is just beyond the horizon. There is still work to be done and now that we have learned to control the emotions we must apply that power of wisdom with a slight touch of patience. That is the true strength and it comes from inside.
To control the beast within and to tame our human desire. The will now require both determination and great courage. The power is within the soul and this can be a long process. Strength is already inside the questionnaire and they are going on a spiritual journey if the will allows.
POSITION 3 – FUTURE
The most likely outcome for the near future.
THE LOVERS- At first glance this card appears to be all about love, but it is actually all about the choices we make in life and taking personal responsibility for those choices. This is the card of a person who is becoming mature enough to make decisions and accept the consequences that come as a result.
In a love reading this is, of course, a very significant card and can indicate two people who care about each other very much and are making choices together about their future life.
It can also indicate a new relationship which may be very fulfilling long term – if this card appears and you are not sure, take it as an indication that this person would be very good for you. This can also indicate a choice between two potential lovers, or between a lover and someone else in your life who is very important to you (possibly a parent) – once again follow your heart. This card can also indicate a younger person who is flying-the- nest, becoming less dependant on parents and beginning a new life, perhaps with a partner.
The Lovers can also appear when you need to start making decisions for yourself about life, love, career and also moving out of the parental home to become independent for the first time.
In a career or business reading this card shows that there is a major choice – follow your heart and listen to your inner voice – you can’t go wrong
