Question: Five cards for health, wealth, wisdom, love, and life. (Body, profession, writing, Alison, and children.) Deck:The Steampunk Tarot Spread: Free Form Spread Date: Jul 27, 2013
First Card Nine of Cups
Core meaning: Material, emotional, and physical well-being.
This card brings very happy and bountiful energy with it—although isn’t there an old saying about wishes? “If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride”—no, not that one. Oh, yes: “Be careful what you wish for.”
Second Card X • The Wheel of Fortune
Core meaning: A random occurrence is at hand.
The Wheel of Fortune represents the random hand of fate, which can be lucky or unlucky. There is no judgment or assessment of your life in this card; it is more impersonal than Justice or the Tower, for example. Randomness is as much a part of life as the natural order. This card gives you a heads-up that something unexpected is about to drop into your life.
Third Card Four of WandsCore meaning: Celebrating the culmination of events or the achieving of a goal.
You have probably finished up a creative endeavor and are ready to celebrate your achievement. The project will have been a group effort or involved with a group in some way. One of the charming interpretations for this card is “marriage,” because the structure resembles the bowers used at Jewish weddings. A marriage, too, is a creative endeavor and a group-related celebration.
Fourth Card V • The Hierophant
Core meaning: Living faith in everyday life.
The Hierophant is one who teaches us how to live in accordance with our sacred beliefs. When the Hierophant comes to your reading, the most important thing to ask yourself is how what you believe matches what you think, say, and do. With all teachings, it is up to individuals to take them into their heart and mind and to ultimately decide whether or not to envelop them into their life.
Fifth Card XIX • The Sun
Core meaning: Clarity that brings joy.
When this card shines in your life, it promises happiness and joy based on truth and understanding. Its presence uplifts all other cards and makes everything just a little bit better.
