CARD 1 -BASIS. QUESTION.
[please click on the link to view the card & the descriptions are Rainring© used to illustrate this reading]
31 hero +2
the man of action; in touch with his own body and the physical world; fortitude, strength, tenacity
A hunter or aboriginal kneels by 2 dead animals, a lion & antelope. In the background there are 3 kangaroos heading to the right of the card. The male has a knife in his right hand and a staff in his left with a lizard twisted around the top.. He is adorned with war paint.
Seaqueen’s perception: The basis of the question is the ability to master the laws of the jungle. These laws pertain to the “rules” at play when a person applies for another job or position (even a promotion). It is not always the strongest that survive as you can see in the image – the lion who is the king of the jungle has been defeated by another animal, one with weapons (skills) and the ability to think. I see the man with the war paint as the victor in this image. The war paint is a symbolism of that part of the personality that we tap into to get what we want or think we deserve.The question is about using weapons (skills) to win, to be the hero. The kangaroos involve travel.
[additional information – After reviewing the Hero card, I think that it could be a bull, perhaps even a ram. I thought it was an antelope, a weaker animal. I still resonate with the antelope because even though the horns do not match it is indicative of the curling up of power against something that is more powerful, ie. the lion and in turn the aboriginal man.If it is a dead bull….. then we have 2 powers negated. Bulls and lions are not likely to have a show down in the jungle.Symbolically the man with the war paint wins over these 2 animals because of the tools (knife) at his disposal.The image in the card suggests that the skills of the hunter can quickly put a stop to aspects of the personality that are in a constant game of chase….. leading to surrender.[In reference to H. this card represents what she has learned already about her own passions and limitations.]
CARD 4- ADVICE TO FOLLOW.
35 Maid. +1
the young woman who incarnates the marriage of Will and Spirit; she has spiritual insight and sexual vitality in equal measure
A female in the center of the wreath. Vivid green philodendron type leaves with the odd daffodil. She hold a basket in her right wrist as she holds a daffodil. The female has a young, strong voluptuous figure. Resembles Key 21 Tarot the World.
Seaqueen’s perception: As an advice card, the Maid speaks volumes. I hear the word “feminine creativity” loud and clear in this card falling in this position. It is important for H. to remember that she should maintain an aspect of growth and development in this position. There will be much to learn about functioning in an area or position that currently is represented by the empty basket hanging on the right wrist of the woman in the image. There is not much room in the basket to add too many daffodils. This means that H. will need to reach out into her own creative process. The woman in the image if full of a youthful vitality that oozes out of the shape of her body. This hints that the outgoing personality is a factor that will be blended in this position asked about.
CARD 3- WHAT YOU ARE NOT SEEING.
guardian of individual being, the unique nature of one’s own identity; the force which supports and guides multiplicity, differentiation, individuation
Image of a woman spooning into a large pot which sits on the table as 2 children look on, female on left and male on right. There are 4 bowls on the table with 3 spoons. An extra bowl in case of company perhaps?
Seaqueen’s perception: H. is not seeing her own strengths in that she can produce the end results which may be required by this new position. She has much in reserve that is not fully used – represented by the extra bowl on the table. Also, people will depend on her to “deliver” by helping others that need her (the children in the image).The Self card suggests that there is a role that will need to be fulfilled that may very well put H. in the middle of being a distributor of resources. Her new experience is all about giving more than is expected and this can be achieved by allowing herself to take on a more mundane role to provide what is necessary.
CARD 2- WHAT YOU KNOW. RECENT.
56 Expression. -1
the urge to make our mark upon life, just as it makes its own upon us; the impulse to press out upon the world by creative acts
The image shows a seasoned looking male facing to the left of the card. He is sporting a moustache and beard. There is a barren branch protruding in the background. He hold up 2 fingers of his left hand similar to the Key 5 Tarot the Hierophant. He is wearing a headdress that covers his right ear.Seaqueen’s perception: H. is wise and knows if she waits long enough and follows certain modes of expression by hearing what is being asked (headdress covering right-dominant-ear), she will see the leaves on the empty branch in the background begin to sprout new leaves. She has done this before – it is part of her cycle of growth.
CARD 5- THE RESULT.
39 Creation -2
conception + desire = creation; the latter is the product of fusion of the two former, also the balancer between them
The image show a whale in the forefront of the card facing to the left and a couple of little fish as well. There is an almost surreal look as the water merges with the background. There we see a hill and a volcano with 2 giant puffy clouds surrounding a golden sun and two surreal looking animals in the middle of the card. I see the Tarot Temperance card within.
Seaqueen’s perception: The Creation card is positive energy. It is about two worlds living harmoniously within one. (conscious + subconscious) It is about the opportunity to see her journey through these two worlds and to understand that the new position will open up her eyes to the fact that sometimes she will just be a little fish and sometimes the volcano in the image. H.’s creativity is huge (depicted by the whale) and it will be allowed to show itself but not always in a grandiose way because the message of 42 Self is placing her more in the background or behind the scenes.”Will H get the new position ( promotion) she is considering applying for? AND What would be H’s experience in this new position?”The Result card (39 Creation) favors a “yes” answer, however the additional responsibilities may place H. in a position where she may not be able to rely on others to contribute as much as she may want to. She may have to “pull” out her additional skills which are very natural to her anyways.The card promises that she will learn all about systematic organization that bridges her ego + creativity.
