Thank you to all who contributed their theories, concepts and interpretations on the last Daily Card Reading Practice, The Eight of Pentacles Reversed and The Ten of Swords. Before we move on to our next one, I would like to add a couple more interpretations.
We must also look at the possibility of The Eight of Swords Reversed representing a Business that is being badly managed. Bad business practices, below standard products, under qualified staff, outdated equipment. Possibly money being spent in the wrong areas, or insufficient funds as a result of bad budgeting, and no contingency plans. The business owner may have taken a gamble or risk, invested in an expensive product or service that no one wants. He hasn’t got what it takes to be in business and takes his advice from unreliable sources. He really could be involved in any sort of shady business, but it won’t last, and there is a chance he may take down a few with him when it all collapses around him. He may very well try to save his own skin and live to fight another day, but he will leave a right mess behind him, and others put in very difficult circumstances.
Financially or physically, these Cards may suggest someone hitting rock bottom.
Relationship wise, the figure in The Reversed Eight may be so obsessed and engrossed with work, or just totally negligent and uncommitted, he is not paying attention to its imminent downfall. His relationship may be on the rocks. If he does not act quickly he may not be able to save it.
Because the ruin, collapse or death-like situation is connected to the Reversed Pentacle, its roots are more than likely in the realm of finances, physical health and the material world; business, property, possessions, money, land, assets
We may come back to these two Cards at a later stage and add a couple more in order to get further insight. It might change the storyline completely or simply confirm our suspicions.
Today’s Cards are as follows: The Eight of Cups and The Ace of Wands Reversed
This time I want you to approach them as follows:
- The Cards are related to Relationship issues
- The Cards are related to Work/Career/Business issues
- The Cards are General
Pick any, or all three, and apply your interpretation and story-telling skills appropriately.
Please feel free to comment on each other’s interpretations or simply add to them. I will soon be changing to WordPress.org and will then be arranging a forum plugin to facilitate the group endeavour when doing Practice Readings. I will also be happy to see you do Readings for each other.
Today I start to re-work the Four Knights of The Court Cards and also the Lesson Content for Lesson 9, Part I. Looks like I will have a busy day ahead of me.
