Tarot Spread Interpretation

Suzi, who is a student from one of my Intuition Through Tarot classes, had some questions about the April Fool's Day Tarot Spread I provided on this blog.

With Suzi's permission, I have given my interpretation of the cards she pulled. Check it out:
Her cards were:
Past -- 6 of Swords
Future -- 7 of Pentacles
Underlying influences -- Ace of Hearts
What Qualities Will Help You? -- 3 of Swords

Here is my interpretation of the cards:

Past – 6 of Swords – you have moved away from a time in your past (this life and other lives) where you were persecuted or feared you would be ostracized for being different (intuitive, psychic, etc.) All of these are qualities you have hidden during your life. You are in a phase of stepping into your power and claiming the gifts that are yours naturally. You are eager to use them, understand them and help people with them. As you begin to let the real you and your gifts surface, you’ll be amazed at how you are able to understand and help people. This will fulfill your desires to help people.

Future – 7 of Pentacles – This indicates to me that at some point you will feel comfortable charging for your services. You will have honed them so much that people will pay – and you will be in such demand that you will have to charge, if only to keep your energy exchange and your business in order. Meaning…if you give it away freely, you will be too busy trying to help everyone. Right now you are on a diligent path to develop your skills so you have faith in what you are able to do. You need to believe in yourself and your gifts. It may be a slow and steady process, but it will be well worth it.

Underlying influences – Ace of Hearts – you know in your heart that this is who you truly are. You have been fighting it your entire life. So much energy has been used in trying to cover up your gifts and “be normal.” You will feel great relief just allowing yourself to be you. Once you do, you will feel as though you are having a new romance with yourself. Life will be in flow and much easier than it has been.

Qualities to help you – 3 of Swords – Realize that a lot of how you have created your life now may change…and with this, there may be some grief. Remember that you have created a world that was safe for you to live in, but it has been somewhat of a fa├žade. You didn’t do it to fool anyone, but to keep yourself safe. As you shed the costumes you have worn to fit in with everyone else, the real you will emerge. The 3 of Swords to me symbolizes that some people may fall away from you. It may be sad, but realize that others (who vibrate at an energy closer to yours) will be attracted to you. If/when you begin to feel sad, remember how much easier it is to just be you and not have to think so much about what other people need to see you as in order to feel comfortable.

Here's Suzi's response to the interpretation:

Thank you so much for your interpretation of the cards I drew. I am completely in agreement with your take on it and it was very close to mine...only more in depth than I went as you know the cards so much better! But I was stumped by the 3 of swords. You cleared it right up. I don't know why I didn't see it that way... I just didn't know what the heck it meant...I could not figure out where the sadness and grief came in... It makes perfect sense now! Of course!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I'm curious. What do you get from these cards? Please add to the discussion.

I don't really know anything about Tarot cards but I've always been curious. Your interpretation on the "3 of Swords" hit home for me. I am a people pleaser and just now in my early 40's learning that life is too short not to be myself. I have so much more to offer the world when I'm my true self.

I'm loving your blog! Just what I needed. Thanks Sheri
