|Tarot Illuminati, 2013|
1. It will be a time of inaction (4 of Swords), confusion (Moon) and lack of direction (Fool). My inner fears (Moon) cause me to become very passive (4 of Swords), while also causing me to make reckless, possibly self-sabotaging choices (Fool).
2. It will be a time of reflection (4 of Swords) and introspection (Moon), a time when my 'beginner mind' will refresh my enthusiasm (Fool). I will face many of my inner fears (Moon) through journeying within (Fool) using new (Fool) meditation techniques (4 of Swords).
Actually either of these could be true. Or both of them could be true. I can see several scenarios where the first, negative reading could happen. And I can equally see how the second, positive reading could happen. It is entirely possible that in different areas of my life, both will happen.
I maintain, though, that even though this is a predictive reading, these outcomes are still dependent upon my choices. I can choose not to allow the negative reading to happen, and I can equally back off and prevent the positive outcome from happening. I admit, though, and can see how if I remain on my current trajectory, these things will manifest. It would take a conscious effort on my part to change this. If nothing else, it has been useful for me to look upon the cards in a wholly predictive manner, because it forces me to see the negative and positive, rather than trying to wring a 100% 'empowering' meaning from the cards. The truth is empowering. The truth is, either or both of these outcomes could happen. And the important thing is to watch out in my life and make sure I really get the outcome I want.
