It recently came across my awareness that providing the guidebook text could be potentially infringing on copyright laws, so I will no longer be including that in my posts unless I get express permission from the author. I was doing it in the spirit of sharing accurately (I do love the way they phrase things), and I don't have any concrete evidence one way or another...but since I advocate looking within for answers and honoring one's intuitive guidance, whether it is okay or not okay, I shall be discontinuing it for now. Temporarily bummed :(...
However, I will include a short synopsis/quote of each card in place of the guidebook text, and will have my intuitive interpretation of the card spread at the end, as usual.
1.) Cave: "refuge, darkness, place of power and danger, isolation"...can also symbolize the heart, spiritual power and initiation.
2.) Bell: "alerting, heralding, invoking, dispersing evil"...it can signal something new coming, or serve as a 'wake-up call'.
3.) Sun: "glory, radiating brilliance, dispelling, dominating"...the sun can bring light to shadowed areas, represent illumination, and can also be relentless at times.
Message from Hello Rose:
This spread was super encouraging! We are emerging from our Caves of self-isolation, refuge, introspection, transformation (death/birth of some aspect of ourselves)...and into the glorious rays of the Sun! The Bell is heralding in this new period of our life (coming into your personal power, new you, leadership, manifesting results, being in the spotlight). For those of you who are in part tempted to linger awhile longer in your Cave of refuge, the Bell is acting as an extra nudge to shake off any final remnants of old energy that might yet be cocooning you. The time has come...we did it, we made it through...let's shine!!!
