POSITION 1 – PAST
This position represents the past where the situation originated.
THE HIGH PRIESTESS – Often when the high priestess appears in a spread she advises you to take a step back from the situation and keep your own counsel for the time being. It would seem that there is more to be revealed in this situation than you may know and this secret knowledge will be worth waiting for as it will give you greater insight into the situation.
This is also the card of psychic ability and it may be that, if you are currently following a spiritual path, it is time to sit back and stop “trying” so hard – let the natural flow of the universe guide you.
POSITION 2 – PRESENT
The present situation.
FOUR OF CUPS – Continuing the journey in the story of cups, we reach the four, if three was the party then four is the hangover. The typical morning after.
This card appears when you need rest. This is not always an early night or even a week off work, it can go much deeper. It could be a need for mental rest, to recharge your mind, body and spirit.
POSITION 3 – FUTURE
The most likely outcome for the near future.
KING OF PENTACLES – A man of means, perhaps a banker, stockbroker, trader, or speculator.
It would appear that this man knows how to make money work for him and once he turns his hand to something it is usually a financial success. He is generally a good provider, but caution is needed if he sees people as possessions. He may have an attitude that money can buy everything including love and loyalty.
