Reading for 1 October
This position represents the past where the situation originated.
ACE OF CUPS – New beginnings on an emotional plane.
This card can represent a new relationship, a new level of feeling in an existing one or even the return and renewal of a past relationship. Emotions are overflowing while hopes and dreams take on an innocent and hopeful feeling.
All things are possible at this early stage and this card offers great promise for the future, although this is only the very early stages, the commencement of the journey, optimism and excitement at the prospect of all that could now be possible.
POSITION 2 – PRESENT
The present situation.
DEATH – At first glance the Death card can look quite scary but actually a better name for this could be Transformation. This card sometimes appears when something in our lives has ended irrevocably (in other words something in our lives has died).
It is very rarely associated with physical death other than it can indicate a terrible fear of physical death that is stopping you living your life to the full. Whatever the subject, Death indicates that the situation is ending and that there isn’t much you can do about it – that part of your life is over.
In a love/relationship reading the appearance of Death can show the ending of a relationship. Remember, of course, that as one relationship dies you are then opening up to the potential of a new relationship which could be more fulfilling. In an ongoing relationship Death shows that a phase of that relationship is at an end.
Death has a very positive aspect in that, if you have been going through a difficult time in a relationship, that time is about to come to an end. Paired with positive cards for the future it can show that the relationship is being-reborn in a more positive light.
In a career/business reading Death can indicate that part of your professional life is over or coming to an end. It advises that you let go as it is meant to be that way – it’s time to look at new projects/career paths.
Death is very pertinent to spiritual growth. As you grow spiritually there will be parts of your ego self that have to “die” so that the new ‘you’ can be reborn. Be open to this process even though in the short term it may be painful.
POSITION 3 – FUTURE
The most likely outcome for the near future.
EIGHT OF SWORDS – You may feel restricted by your circumstances; it can feel that your options are limited and that your choices are few. It could be that you feel bound to keep information to yourself, and that others are controlling your life.
There is a way past this restrictive situation. The way to reach a positive solution is to be objective and not let personal feelings cloud judgment.
Seeking help from an impartial third party is an option which should be considered at this time.
