As January draws to a close I am reflecting on my experience with the Legacy. I have to say that I connected a lot more with this deck then I thought I would and yet at the same time I don’t think that beyond just drawing my own meanings from the pictures presented that I am going to be able, personally, to go any deeper then that. I just don’t have any want to dig into the symbolism that is presented here, and when I am doing readings the numerology and zodiac signs only inflict within me a passing glance. I am not sure if this is from being lazy or I just am not at this time capable of it. I have decided to stay another month with the Legacy in hopes that maybe beyond the odd reading here and there I will be drawn to go deeper. Only time shall tell. I do have to say that I still love this deck for its picturesque beauty(if that makes any sense at all.)
Now tonight I am going to explore the spread called the mystic seven that I pulled from my Tarot Bible. Laying out the cards at first glance they honestly make no sense. I am going to bumble my way through this in hopes that Something will come out of it.
Card 1. Your Current Situation: 9 of Swords. Our thoughts can rule us when we let them. I have heard that there is nothing more scary then what comes out of our own imagination. That with fear we can create monsters out of shadows, or that fear can make situations worse then what might actually be there. It isn’t ever a good thing to let your imagination run wild when you are scared and I know that I have a tendancy to conjure up worse scenarios within my own mind when I am obsessing over something that scares me. I think this is telling me that things look worse inside my own mind then what is in actuality. Which is good, just makes me feel a wee bit silly…
Card 2. Obstacles: The Moon. Lack of illumination, or jumping to conclusions before you actually have concrete information can make you seem foolish. You know what they say about when you assume something.=) I do have a tendancy to jump to conclusions. That kind of goes with the last card, how when you don’t know the whole situation you can make things worse when you dwell on them, making them uglier then what it might be. I have been doing this with my relationship lately, dwelling on the negatives. So obviously I am not being fair and looking at all sides of this situation, and assuming on how the other person feels. Lord am I even making any sense right now?
Card3. Your Aspiration: Three of Cups. To be a happy person who feels like they have something to celebrate, or maybe that I want to find something that makes me feel happy again. That I want a reason to go out and dance and be merry.
Card 4. What needs to be awakened: Four of Cups. Now when I first laid this down I was a bit confused with how this could be something that I need to be awakened too. But as I think on it, maybe it is telling me that this is an energy that I need to be aware that is within myself, and that it needs to be dealt with so I can move on. That I need to get out of the phase where I am disconnected and discontent with everything. That I need to look at the silver lining and work with that instead of reflecting on the bad points of my situation. I need to weave gold thread out of hay. Which seems so impossible, cause this one I feel isn’t connected with the state of my relationship but more of just the state of my life at the moment. It is telling me to Deal with this emotion and move on and recognize the worth of what I have instead of how much it “sucks.”
Card 5. What lies behind you: Faith. Well ok so at first that looks bad because really I do still have faith, But not the same faith as I did before. Not to long ago I was feeling that everything that I had been taught was not quite right that it didn’t mash with what I knew of the world. That it was restrictive and blind to the obvious. I still have the core beliefs that I used to have, but the bulk of it I left behind. I feel much better now about my world, that I am not just ignoring parts of myself that before would have been seen as wrong and bad. It was driving me crazy!! So I left it behind.
Card 6. The next stage: Queen of Swords. I feel like this is my collecting information stage. I always have the feeling that this Queen knows much more then the average person. Swords are about intellect and she has it in droves. I am going into a phase where I am soaking up all the information I can get my hands on, and some day I do want to be able to actually apply it somewhere.
Card 7. What will be. Queen of Wands. It looks like all that information is going to light a fire under me and I am going to use it creatively.
Two Queens right next to each other, wow that one is a first. The Queens have been showing up a lot, I take that to mean that I have or will have a lot of feminine influence in my life. Some of this reading flowed easily for me and some of it was a bit ‘huh, and what is this trying to tell me?’ But all and all this was pretty informative and gave me a point of view I had not looked at.
