Deck Used: The Goddess Tarot (graciously loaned to me by Cristina Matteis! Thank You!)
Spread: Past/ Present/ Future
General Reading or the Question Asked: I am honestly not sure what specific question I was asking, but I was reflecting on my career and my path forward.
Card 1: Past Card 2: Present Card 3: Possible Future Card 4: The Over All Message
Card 1: XII – Sacrifice – Kuan Yin
Meaning: A surrender to higher principles, higher goals, self abnegation. Taking care of others. Sacrifice in order to gain wisdom and empathy.
My Interpretation: It feels like the perfect description of my beginning as a Vet Tech. I gave up the easy path, so I could pursue knowledge and care for those creatures that are experiencing their darkest hour at the expense of my inner self.
Card 2: Ten of Staves
Meaning: The accumulation of the creative venture began with the one of staves. Success that becomes overwhelming with its responsibility.
My Interpretation: I feel like I have hit a glass ceiling as it where. My skill level and knowledge base is vast, but I feel like I can go further. I’m just not sure how.
Card 3: Four of Swords
Meaning: The need for introspection and healing. Recuperation from illness. Time to take a break from stressful situations.
My Interpretations: If I don’t make some kind of change. I will never heal. I will need to take time away and maybe never return to the career I love but is currently draining everything I have.
Card 4: Seven of Staves
Meaning: Though you may have the upper hand in this situation there is still struggle. Success is possible but only after dealing with difficult people who may not be supportive.
My Interpretation: There is a path forward. It will not be easy, but I must defend my path against those who wish to keep my down if I wish to fly.
