I used the Tattooed Tarot with a random significator and a past, present, future reading (three cards) to answer the following question:
- What is blocking the querent from spiritual work?
Significator is the Six of Swords – A long way to go; Distance
Past – Eight of Chalices – Agreement; Reconciliation.
Present – Three of Swords – Tears; A stab in the back; Separation
Future – Two of Swords – Balance; The aid of a friend; Union; Alliance
Reading of the Cards
Sometimes, it is necessary to go as far away as possible. Accept a contract offered to you; give a new development your favorable attention. A bolt from the blue will cause you great disappointment, but providential assistance will arrive when you least expect it.
For some reason, you are looking at your spiritual journey in terms of the time it is taking to get to where you think you should be. This is a fallacy – the journey shouldn’t be defined as meeting a goal or not, but in what you learn on the way.
In the past, you’ve kept an open mind about what might happen to you and were willing to try new methods to tap into your spirituality but you’re hesitating now. It’s as if you don’t quite trust your own instincts, and I can’t quite pinpoint why – either you tried something that backfired and you’re not wanting to do so again, or you ended up with an unexpected result you didn’t know how to handle.
The best thing for you to do is to pick something from your list (if you have one), grit your teeth, and just power through it, even if you have to force it. I get the sense that a breakthrough is coming but you won’t get there by sitting stagnant.
