I have had my one deck, Elmira, for at least a year or so. Can’t remember exactly but every now and then I will just decide to ask questions, not a whole spread.
Today I did that. Asked 3 different questions. Used questions on a link a came a cross, 99 Questions To Ask Your Tarot Deck About Life, Love & More | mindbodygreen.
First question was where was fear holding me back in my life. I got the the Star upright (yes I used reversals as well). I am trying to learn to be intuitive with my readings, tho I do use the meaning on Tarot.com and Spells8 Tarot card meanings to help guide my view of what the card is saying.
For this, I read the card as saying I need to trust in the divine, basically learn to let go control. Which is accurate. I am afraid of letting go and trusting the everything will be okay. I need to learn that, if I am to fully immerse myself in being Pagan, I need let go and trust the Goddess will not guide me wrong.
My 2nd question was what my soul needs right now. I got the 3 of cups upright.
My interpretation of this card for me is that I need to realize I am loved. My souls needs that, that I have those around me that love me. My soul feels alone, like I don’t have support around me and at times like a ‘ship going down’. I have many ‘sisters’ around me that love me and are there for and wanting me to succeed. I need to remember that.
My 3rd question and the final one I asked was how I could love or accept myself. I got the Ace of Wands upright.
I see this card as again reminding me I have support and love around me. That if those people around me can love me, then I can love and accept myself for who I am.
Not sure how accurate that it, but I thought I would pass along and see what you fine people have to say. Feel my interpretations are getting better and I am not relying so heavily on the guidebook or written meanings. I also see this reading has a lot positive-- no reversals, all positive. All building me up, reminding me of the positive.
