- Which cards do you think I am describing in these brief interpretations?
a. I feel you have experienced a deep loss and are emotionally very low at present. Your friends and family are finding it hard to reach you in your distress.
b. I get a sense that you may be moving into a new home soon. I believe that you will be very happy there and that there is a great community spirit in the area. People are friendly and welcoming. This will be a very stable period in your life
c. You appeared to be bored and disinterested in life. What happened to make you so disillusioned? During this time you became very withdrawn and had little time or interest in going out with your normal friends. You very possibly needed a change of scene. Had you outgrown your friends?
d. The cards are telling me that you might be a bit lonely at present. I don’t see many friends around you right now and you do not appear to be socialising much either. What is the cause of this? Have you fallen out with friends or is it that you find it hard to make friends. I think you need to get out and have a bit of fun.
e. Have you or someone you know been ill recently? I sense that there may have been a hospital stay.
f. I understand that you were badly hurt by your ex-fiance nearly two years ago but the cards are telling me that you have not let this go. You must learn to forgive and move on in your life. Otherwise all the painful experience and hurt will eat you up inside and you will become bitter in heart and mind.
g. I can see that you have been saving very hard for some time and that finances were a big issue for you. The cards are suggesting that you are financially secure now and have more than enough saved to start your business. I believe your business has the potential to be very successful and you will get the rewards for all the hard work you have put in.
h. Have you been invited to a wedding or party? I believe that you will be getting all dressed up for a special day out. It looks like it will be a grand occasion and you will have a great time.
Things to Do
- Begin to revise the Four Aces while studying the new cards learned in this Lesson. While revising the Four Aces use your highlighter pen and highlight any sentences, meanings or keywords that now hold meaning for you. You may be surprised to find ones which made no sense to you before suddenly now do. This is because you are beginning to use your brain and observational skills in a new way. You will be continuing revision of cards along with learning new one all the way through the course as this is the only way to learn. repetition, repetition and practice, practice.
- When you have completed your revision of each Ace, I would like you to write or type up your own brief description and meaning for each, both upright and reversed. This is now your version of the Four Aces. It may only be a few sentences or a few keywords but don’t worry you will be going back to this again because you will be revising each card several times. Each time you revise it you will be highlighting more words and meanings and before you know it you will have compiled your own personal interpretation for each card which you will remember long after you have forgotten what I have written.
- Briefly re-read The Four Twos.
- Study or re-read the notes on The Four Threes and Fours.
- Do a daily card reading for yourself. A One-Card reading as guidance for the day or a three-card reading (past, present & future) in relation to a predetermined question. Remember to apply the shuffling, selection and question rules.
- Using just the first 16 cards of the Tarot. That is the Aces, Twos, Threes and Fours do some one-card and three card readings for friends and family as practice.
- Practice the Chakra Meditation or one of your own choice. Notice if the strength of your chakras improves during the visualisation. Note any sensations or visuals you experience.
