Iris X Reading of the Week/ Week beginning on 4.17.23
This week's reading was done on the Cary Yale Visconti Tarocchi Deck. This is a Tarot deck created in Italy in 1440, and is one of the oldest Tarot decks that can be found in print. It is a stunning deck- created for a royal family, and truly feels like it. I shuffled the old cards and asked them to give me a reading for someone who will read this post. I never know who the reading will be for until it is posted. Sometimes, it's for one particular person. Other times, it is for many. Read on, see if it is for you!
The reading begins with the VII of Wands. If this is your reading, there is something that you have been working hard on. You are overwhelmed and feel like you have a lot on your plate. Every time you take a step forward, something happens that puts you two steps back. You are standing up and fighting, but you feel like you are really stretched and having a hard time completing projects and finding time and space to take a break.
The Ace of Wands appears next with the advice of taking a new opportunity and running with it. This may be tough to consider while you are already busy, but you have a really good idea that you should work with. It has the potential to change the way that things are going in your life right now. All of the Aces are ideals of the suit- and this is the suit of innovation and inspiration. If you have a good idea- it's time to run with it.
The X of Wands comes up next, showing that you Can pull off all of the things that you want to do. You may feel like it's too much, but this is the card of pulling everything together. It is a card of success and power- if you take the opportunity that you have, you will pull everything together; and it will be faster than you think it will be. Have some faith in your ability to work under pressure!
The key to the week is Temperance. Stay calm and centered. You are worrying too much, and right now- it is important to stay even and tempered. Take a break and a few deep breaths; you have a lot to do and it won't help you to give up believing in yourself. When you feel an extreme type of emotion, do what you can to calm down. Temper the dark and the light- stay right in the center and refuse to be pulled from that place. That is your key.
Here's what I see. If this is your reading, you have a new idea that you want to run forward with. But when you look at your current chaotic schedule, you are afraid that you can't pull it off. In fact- it seems crazy to even try. But the idea that you have is an Ace. It brings you to a place of success faster than you think it will. It is more difficult to be where you are now; overwhelmed and overworked. It may not immediately seem like it, but your Ace of an idea will break this pattern and cycle- and bring you to a place of success. Now, you just have to stay calm and tempered. Don't let anyone or anything pull you off your place of grounded peace. You have too much to do to waste your energy worrying- what you have to do right now is Act. Take the Ace, and run with it. It will go well.
