Iris X Reading of the Week/Week beginning on 7/8/24:

This week's reading was done on The Raven's Dream Tarot by MJ Cullinane. It's a beautiful and vibrant deck focused on my favorite bird! I shuffled the cards and asked for a reading or message for someone who will see this post. It looks like there is someone that has been staying trapped in a negative situation when they know that it is time to leave. Read on and see if it's for you or for someone that you know.


The reading begins with the Eight of Swords. If this is your reading, you are trapped in a negative situation. Your thoughts are helping you to stay in the place that you have to leave. This may be a relationship, job, or way of seeing the world. You are holding yourself back and building a trap for yourself that you Can get out of. It's time to let go- even if you don't know what you are going to do next. If your thoughts can trap you where you are- they can also help you to find a way out. 

The Tower comes up next, showing something burning down. But after the Tower collapses, you will no longer be trapped. The Ravens fly about, showing you that nothing has trapped you but yourself. It's scary to trust the ground under your feet when it's all crumbling. This will lead you to a better place, but that doesn't make the place that you are in any easier. 

The Seven of Pentacles is next. Now that you won't have to come up with ways to get out of the trap you are in, you can plant seeds for the future. Where do you want to go? What are the things that you want to do? This is a card of having patience and understanding that sometimes things don't move quickly. All you can do is take a breath, focus on the future- and wait. 

The key to this reading is the Six of Cups. Walking away is going to bring you to the next stage of your life. There are times when life gives us a challenge. And if we can meet the challenge and be successful, we move onto the next stage. We grow up a little bit more. You will be able to walk across the bridge, with respect for what your past has taught you- and plans for the future. 

Here's what I see. If this is your reading, you have been trapped and unhappy for a very long time. But you are the only one that is trapping you at this point. You may have many reasons that you Have to stay in a harmful situation, but it's time to jump from the Tower. This isn't an easy thing to do. You are watching what you have built and worked on crumbling to the ground. But you will be happier when you are out of the Tower that you have been trapped in. You will be able to see clearly and know what to do next. For now, plant some seeds for the future and look ahead. You may feel nostalgic, but it's time to walk across the bridge into the next stage of your life. It is never easy when you have to leave all that you know behind. But for you- in doing this, you will grow and evolve. 

If this is your reading, take care- it's not easy! If you need a reading this week, send a message to
