I have a very good friend who’s been ignoring my messages in Ottawa. I know he’s fine, so I’m not worried about him. I’m just slightly annoyed because I know he’s been on Facebook. I also know he’s about to start a new work assignment from home. Normal people would just call him and say, what’s up, right? But reading the cards is so much more fun. 🙂
I decide to use my Tarot de Maria Celia by Tarot illustrator Lynyrd-Jym Narciso. It’s a pocket size Marseille Tarot whose name is supposed to be a play on the Italian pronunciation of Marseille (“Marsiglia”).
I do a three card line reading and also look at the card at the bottom of the deck (after the cut).
No trumps came up, so nothing of major importance here, but the fascinating thing is that all the pips were from the suit of Wands, as if to say, “ask a stupid question, get an obvious answer”, LOL! And what’s with all these court cards? Are they all people?
Because I read Wands just as I read Clubs in a deck of cards, I interpret this as all about some kind of work. In a Tarot deck, though, you have the additional Cavalier or Knight, who shows action and movement between different Courts.
In addition, we have a Valet right next to the Queen. In a case like this, where they are next to each other and are sharing the same suit (ex. Wands), schools of cartomancy that use the cunning folk method of reading cards, will often interpret the Valet here as the Queen’s thoughts.
To summarize then, I would say that my friend is very busy preparing for his new job. He would like to feel in control (King of Wands from the cut) of his new tasks, but knows he isn’t yet (Valet of Wands). He’s devoting a lot of thought and effort in understanding what his new boss (probably the Queen of Wands) expects from him (Valet of Wands), and in doing so, a lot of messages (Cavalier of Wands) are going back and forth between them.
I don’t even need to call him to confirm this. Let’s ignore him for a while, and have him wonder what I’m up to for a change. (Just kidding.) 🙂
