As a result of my FREE TAROT READING campaign, here is the question from H:
What lies ahead for me after my graduation next month (May 21)?
First of all, thanks for your question.
This is a good question. I have read the cards for you and this is what I have seen.
This is the spread I used to answer your question.
1st card: This is it. The current situation. You or your question, the problem, or the approach of the problem.
Three of Cups (reversed).
This is an Active/Emotional card representing Pluto in Cancer and in the 4th House.
Generally – traditionally – Three of Cups is interpreted as a card of joy and pleasure, the perfect representation of the summer parties. But I believe it’s not about Mercury or Mars as some authors suggest, but it’s about Pluto. And as we know, Pluto is all about transformation.
Pluto represents the cycle of death and rebirth. It represents the revelation which is not necessarily of sexual nature (orgasm), but generally it’s similarly powerful and disturbing.
If you have Pluto in Cancer or the Fourth House you have had to deal with society’s demands and expectations on the performance of the home and family on the domestic scene. Peace must be found between “to be or not to be.” You become aware at some age of the complicated problems of life on this earth and the evolvement necessary to function in some way compatible with your individuality and the society in which you find yourself. This is the place where you grow up and become an individual.
Pluto’s backward shift (retrograde) doesn’t make us confused, it makes us reflective. Instead of Pluto creating sticky situations in the outside world, it forces us to look inward.
The answer is within you, stop wondering and looking outside!
When Pluto goes retrograde, it forces us to focus on our own personal shadow sides – specifically, the unpleasant parts of our personalities that we may not really like. It might represent a warning that you have to improve where you are weak in order to evolve and succeed.
With Pluto retrograde, we’ll have to get honest with ourselves about how much we’re motivated by a need for recognition, money and authority.
At the same time, we might have to confront the darker sides of what we want; for example, are you working hard to get things done because you are truly concerned about your future, or you want to prove it to somebody else that you can make it.
The card straight represents parties, but reversed represents fears. Don’t let your emotions getting in your way and try to think straight.
2nd card: The crossing card indicates the influences you will encounter. Things you have to deal with.
This is a Reactive/Mental card representing the zodiac sign Libra, governed by Venus.
Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac, and it’s at this point in the zodiac that we start to see a shift. While the first six signs of the zodiac focus on the individual, the last six focus on the individual’s contact with others and with the world. Libras are first and foremost focused on others and how they relate to them. We can call this the sign of Partnership with a capital ‘P’.
In other words, you can count on the support of your friends, colleagues and family. The good news is you are not alone and you don’t have to do it all by yourself. Sometimes you just have to ask for help and you have to understand that asking help is not a sign of weakness, but of wisdom and courage.
Traditionally Venus is considered a smooth seductress who was at her best amid pleasurable excess. I have a quite different perspective about Venus. Venus represents the Mental (Air) aspect of the reactive (grounded) energy; it’s all about being practical and reasonable, keeping everything in smooth balance. Choose wisely your partners and keep the balance between your social life and relaxation time and the time spent for study and work.
The element associated with Libra is Air, and that means reaching higher, specifically to the higher mind. Libras like to put their mind to good use, and enjoy communicating their thoughts to others.
The great strength of the Libra-born is their quest for fairness, peace and harmony – and this is what you should have on your mind as well: be calm and find the balance.
3rd card: The outcome – the result.
Knight of Disks.
This is a Reactive/Practical card representing Mercury in Capricorn.
This card is all about structure and order; about being practical and breaking down the ideas into manageable parts before arriving at a decision.
No matter what situation will bring the future, you will have to deal with it – and you have the strength and the resource is to do it. Life is one step at the time. Don’t waste your energy fearing the future, better focus on here and now. Keep in mind that your current decisions and actions are creating your future. Nobody but you is in control of your own destiny. The Knights represents lessons to learn, but learning means evolving.
You are actively involved, which is good, but you seem to be emotional when you need to be calm and reasonable. You have to overcome your emotions and think straight.
You’re afraid of something, but you should calm down and find the solutions, focuses on your goal instead fear the obstacles.
You must find the balance and be adaptable to the circumstances. If you know your weak spots you can focus on them and improve. Find the right partners to be on your side, team-up and together you will succeed.
The Queens, Knights and Pages represents lessons to learn, and these lessons are mandatory for our progress, our spiritual evolution. These lessons sometimes may hit us hard, but there is no other way around. The key to the future is in your hand right here, right now – use it wisely.
