Every week I shuffle the cards and ask for a reading for someone who will see this post. This week, I worked with the Santa Muerte Tarot. Perhaps it is because it is right after a Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon and right before Halloween, but every card in this reading is a Major arcana card. This feels like a big message for someone, so please share! And read on- maybe it's for you!
The reading begins with the Wheel of Fortune. The Wheel spins, time marches on, and everything changes. If this is your reading, you don't know which end is up right now. You are spinning and feeling unsure about where the Wheel will land. This is a card of Fate; and fate is not 'bad' or 'good.' It simply is. All is as it should be right now, but this may be hard to understand when you are in the center of the spin. When the powers of Fate are at play, sometimes you just have to let go and stop pushing. You are not in charge- you are along for the ride.
The High Priestess appears next with a book of wisdom. She guards the gate, and all who pass by her are changed from their experience. While you are feeling spun at the moment, intuitively you know that you are at a very important juncture. Things in your life are about to change, and it is wise to stay calm and not get pulled to the black and white extremes. Sit right in the center of it all, and be quiet so that you can pay very close attention. Silence is your key right now.
Santa Muerte (traditionally Death) comes up next to show the transition that you are in. Everything is changing. Some things are dying and other things have room to grow. You are changed by the experiences and losses that you have had. But you are looking at what you can create with the things that have fallen. This is a card of endings and new beginnings. It is a sacred time.
The key in this reading is The Hierophant. There are times when some structure is helpful so that you can understand the changes that are happening. The Hierophant offers teachings, a way to understand reality, and a focus on faith and belief. When things are spinning out of control, this may help you to make sense of it all. A trusted teacher or guide can provide the key that you need to unlock the gate that you are walking through.
Here's what I see. This is a very intense and spiritual reading. You are spinning in a time of change and fate. Things are as they are supposed to be, but it is hard to find your way. You are moving into a new stage in your life, and you can intuitively feel this happening. You are trying to understand where you are, and you may feel like you need some orientation to know which way to go. You don't have to make any decisions right now; things are out of your hands. It is not action that is needed right now, it is understanding. Maybe there are some traditions or well rooted ways that will help you to put your feet on the ground. A teacher or guide may be what will help. The stage that you are in is not easy. It is a lot to manage all at once. You will be best served by silence, meditation, wisdom and a sense of understanding of the reality that you find yourself in.
This is an intense week for someone! If you need a reading this week, send a message to email@example.com.
