Keeping Alert with the Seven of WandsThe Seven of Wands comes immediately after the card manifesting victory. It reminds us that victory isn’t the end; the struggle continues. We are asked to stay on our toes, alert for challenges, and defending our position. Considering yesterday’s topic, this is interesting. It may indicate that everyone is so entrenched in their own beliefs, fighting for them, that common ground can’t be achieved. There is an often-overlooked subtext to this card. The phrase “I’ve got mine” comes to mind. There is plenty of room on that plateau for everybody. The figure isn’t on a crag where only one can stand. She is staking her claim to a position that has plenty of room for others. Her interest is in keeping others down. I think the message of the Seven of Wands in this spread asks us to consider if our beliefs, our position, are being used to hold others down. How would this card change if she dropped the stave and extended a hand to those below her?
The World – Ending a CycleIn this reading the World card definitely is indicating an end of one cycle; a period of time or perhaps more accurately, of living. This might be lifestyle or it might indicate a major societal change. But things are going to change.
The Wheel Keeps TurningAnd finally, a reminder, if it didn’t come through strongly enough yesterday. Everything that is happening now will subside. The wheel will turn. Change is inevitable. How are you going to navigate that change? Are you going to fight off everyone or extend a hand up?
What Clients are Saying about Sophrosyne Tarot
I was advised to ask open-ended questions instead of predictive questions which I thought was helpful because I never would have known if it weren’t for the reader. The reader provided the reading along with some advice too so the entire reading was very thorough and explained in an understandable manner.
Everything said was accurate and helpful for me to identify my flaws in order to grow as a person. I have learned a lot about tarot and what it does to help me.
