Happy October to the friends of Iris X Readings! Every week, I shuffle the cards and ask for a reading for someone who will read this post. I never know who it will be for! This week's reading was done on the Santa Muerte Tarot- an absolutely gorgeous, vibrant deck honoring the spirit of death. Read on, see if this reading is for you!
The VII of Cups starts off the reading with a feeling of being in the in between. If this is your reading, you feel like you can't quite focus. You have been 'spacey' and 'out of it'; you just can't put your feet on the ground. You feel like there are a lot of things that you want to do and accomplish, but you don't know how to get there. You feel like you have all the good thoughts- but none of the action required to accomplish your goals. In short- you just don't know what to do.
The Fool comes up next. Maybe you are feeling restless because there is a new journey for you to take. You may be thinking- yes, but which direction do I take? The Fool never actually decides what to do- he just starts walking. On the way, the decision will be made. What we know for sure is that change is inevitable here- you can't stay in the place that you have been. You have an adventure coming up!
The VIII of Cups appears next, telling you that you need to do some soul searching. It is time to walk away from everything so that you can hear yourself think. You need some space to yourself to find the thing that has been missing that you should pursue. Something hasn't been coming together, and only you can figure out how to fix it. You have to get away from noise and chaos to search your soul and find your way. Other people don't have the answers that you need right now.
The key is The Hanged Man. The fact is that you have felt stuck for a long time. You were walking on a path and came to a place of decision. You have been in a state of suspension, trying to figure out what to do. The first thing to do is to think outside the box. Shake everything up, and look at it all a different way. It may be smart to wait for true and clear inspiration so that you are not rushing forward due to being tired of standing still.
Here's what I see. If this is your reading, you can't seem to figure out what to do. You have all of the dreams and none of the direction that you need. There's something that you are missing, and you need to move a bit to be able to find it. Consider taking a week (or weekend) to yourself to wander peacefully. Not to come up with a plan, but to look for signs and to follow your intuition. You are in a suspended place, and will do well to look at things from a different perspective. You may be thinking too hard and not paying attention enough. There is clear inspiration that will strike you if you can just get a little space to yourself. There is a lot of wisdom that can be found when you are in an in-between space and don't know where to go. You may be pushing your thoughts too hard, and need to do some dreaming to find your path. You have a new path to walk as The Fool, and this will change everything.
