Good Morning and Happy Moon day to the friends of Iris X Readings! This week's reading was done on The Herbcrafter's Tarot; a Gorgeous deck by Joanna Powell Colbert and Latisha Guthrie. I post a reading every week and never know who I am posting it for! Check it out, and see if it is for you or someone you know!
The week begins with the Six of Water/Borage. There is a bridge to cross over here as this card represents a rite of passage. Something is shifting, and it is time to acknowledge that in some way. There are times that are powerful moments and turning points- and it is wise to stop and give those times a bit of respect and attention. When you cross the bridge, you can take with you what you want, and leave the rest behind. This is a card of gratitude and knowing that you are leaving one time and moving onto a new life.
Strength marks this time as one of power. What you take with you across the bridge are the strengths and skills that you have gained. Strength is represented by Garlic in this deck. Perhaps this time has made you sharp. You don't know how to use your power yet, and sometimes you feel like you come across too strong and harsh. You are in a place of balancing out, and there are times that you may be more sharp than you need to be; and other times that you will find that you will be silent when you should speak. Take the time that you need to figure it all out; you land on the other side of the bridge knowing who you are, and what your powers are.
The week wraps up with the Eight of Water/Valerian. This is the card of vision quest, which feels very powerful in a week that begins with a rite of passage and an acknowledgment of your power. There is something for you to find here- something is missing that you have to seek. It is time to take a walk into the woods. There is an answer or understanding that you are looking for that you can only find yourself. It may be that you have been asking other people, and you are the only one that can answer your questions.
The key to this week is The Magician/Sunflower. It is time to take your power and to use it. You are at a pivotal point in your fate, and you have a choice to make. Your actions are very important right now, as they are creating the reality that you are going to be walking in. You can do anything at all; and the Sunflower suggests standing tall and unapologetically in your power and wisdom. Be honest and clear; it is time to manifest what you want. When you get the Magician, it is up to you. Don't sit still right now, take the wisdom that you have gained and put it into action.
Here's what I see. If this is your reading, you are at an important time. I wonder if you can tell that this is a time that is a gateway. Sometimes, it is easier to tell when you look back. Everything is shifting. You are crossing the bridge into the next stage of your life. There are things to leave behind that no longer serve you, and then you end up on the other side of the bridge standing tall in your power. You will find that strength when you evaluate the time that you have been in, mark it as sacred, and take a walk alone to figure out the rest. Once you know where you are and you get your feet on the ground, it will be time to manifest your future. Be the Magician, and clearly create the world that you want to live in. It is time to turn your gained wisdom into action and change. Walk across the bridge and through the door into the next stage of your life.
A powerful reading for someone! May you find what you are looking for. If anyone needs a reading this week, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a great week!
