Iris X Reading of the Week/Week beginning on 3.27.23:
This week's reading was done on The Wild Unknown Tarot- a deck created by Kim Krans. I love this deck for the animal associations and clarity of images. It is not a deck that I work with very often, but today- I was immediately drawn to it. I shuffled the cards and asked for a reading for someone who will read this post. I never know who it will be for until I post it. Sometimes, it is for many people- other times, for just one person. Read on, see if it's for you!
The week begins with The Fool and an image of a Spring bird that is nervous about leaving the perch to fly. If this is your reading, there is something new that is starting in your life. It is time to take a leap and a risk. The Fool is a card of freedom and formlessness. Something is shifting and changing- and that means that Anything can happen right now. You are right on the edge, ready to go!
The X of Pentacles comes up next showing prosperity and financial success. The leap that you are about to take is likely to go quite well with this card. The X of Pentacles is a card of hard work that pays off and comes to a place of completion. You may feel like you are jumping into uncertainty, but it looks like you will find success faster than you think you will. This is a card of success that continues to grow.
The VIII of Swords wraps up the trio of cards with an image of a butterfly that is ready to leave safety. But there are a lot of swords surrounding him, and he may feel nervous about leaving a place of comfort. Quite often, this is a card of overthinking a situation- and then remaining trapped when it is time to move forward to find success.
The key to this reading is the Father of Pentacles (traditionally the King of Pentacles). Given this card and the X of Pentacles you can expect to be successful in any financial venture. You have taken in a lot of experiences and now it is time to put it out into the world. See where your skills fit in and how you can help. You are aiming towards prosperity and success. This is a card of advancement and being in a place of financial and physical security.
Here's what I see. If this is your reading, you have a new beginning coming up. You have worked hard to get to where you are, and you know that it is time to start something new. But you get nervous and talk yourself out of it. You are worried that you will not be successful. You are overthinking the situation, and you may be blocking yourself from the success that is guaranteed in this reading. Both the King and X of Pentacles shows that you have done a lot of work to get to where you are. If you take the leap, focus, and work hard- you will be successful. The worst thing you can do right now is nothing at all. Don't let your nerves get in the way!
Good luck if this is your reading! And, if you need a reading this week, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
