Today, I pulled from "The Golden Tarot" deck, by Liz Dean ...
What stands out immediately is the # of Wands in this spread!
Wands can symbolize Fire (action, creation, etc.), and for a time-frame, typically refers to Spring, but also means that things can come about quickly.
Card 1: Seven of Wands
Perseverance -- You can continue to believe and a successful outcome is promising with this card, your goal is worth pursuing, although it will have its challenges...your work would be to keep believing and allowing the space for things (outside of your control) to come together.
Card 2: Ace of Wands
This is a card of new beginnings, birth of a project, pregnancy, travel, a new relationship (or phase of one), career, or business, etc. This card has the energy of starting out anew in some area of your life, and heralding it's a fortuitous time to do so.
Card 3: Six of Cups
The only water card (reflection, emotions) between two fire (action) cards on either side. Representing something coming back into your life from the past, reminiscing, the benefit of skills or life experience acquired, harmonious and stimulating relationships, etc.
Card 5: Nine of Wands (Reversed)
Pressure -- This card is a reminder not to make a decision based on external (or internal) pressures, from a place of exhaustion or low resistance. You may feel at times it's unbearable and you want to throw in the towel. Nine is a number of completion and the end of a cycle.
Card 6: Eight of Wands
This is a good sign of a successful outcome of your endeavors! Positive news, recognition, busy time of ideas, activities, and proposals. Of people coming together with a shared vision.
I'm feeling tension, turmoil in the 3rd chakra around the Seven of Wands card. There is a situation that is testing your fortitude. You believe a positive outcome is possible, but you are feeling weary from the challenges so far and from waiting for things to come together. Your belief in continuing on can be at an all time low right now.
It is this situation/feeling that drew you to this card spread at this time...
Like the Phoenix rising, you feel/sense/know you are at a significant threshold...and this spread is here to tell you that the energy of new beginnings is here for you now! You can keep going with your current situation, but in a new way or with renewed vigor...or commence something brand new...or both!
This spread reminds us to look at what we have done before, the lessons learned, the skills developed, of the positive relationships we already have/had to support us as we move forward at this time.
It is also reminding us to avoid making decisions from a place of exhaustion, low resistance, fear or lack...
Overall, this spread is a positive sign that things can work out for you successfully! Whatever you begin anew. The key around deciding what that might be for you, is to recognize from what frame of body/mind/spirit you are taking action/making decisions from... is it from fear? lack? exhaustion? ... or hope? discernment? in the energy of creation? alignment? passion?
To your success! <3
