Spread: Theme, Approach, Challenge Reading
Date: Dec 12, 2021
Just in case you’ve never seen one of these Readings before, I’ll explain how it works.
The Theme of The Week is overall subject or concerns that will be happening during the week.
The Approach To The Week is about what attitude and or feelings to try and use regarding the issues. Of which can also include some actions.
The Challenges of The Week card seems obvious, however, these are rarely easy to accomplish.
Then there’s my guidance about How The Cards Come Together and advice about what you can do to help yourself through the week.
Theme Of The Week
IV • The Emperor
Key words: Structure, Authority, Paternal, Leadership, Stability, Dominion, Power
The emperor appears when we have a need to assume a role of leadership, or it may represent a leader who has come into our lives. You may have a need to identify with a powerful group—religious, ideological, intellectual, economic, or political—and to be one of them. Or you may be associating with someone else who has this need. It may be a time to stabilize a situation or time to focus on worldly achievements.
The Emperor can also represent a father figure and may indicate a father relationship in our lives.
Approach To The Week
Knight Of Wands
Key words: Impetuous, Charming, Impulsive, Energetic
Court cards can represent actual people in our lives or an expression of the energy of that suit. Knights signify periods of transition; the knight of wands represents the spirit of adventure and innovation as well as a possible personal spiritual quest.
The Knight of Wands can also bring good news concerning work or social activities. His glad tidings may relate to almost any anticipated happy event—a journey or vacation, a change of residence or job, an engagement or marriage.
Challenge For The Week
II • Swords
Key words: Indecision, Blocking, Blind to the Truth, Seeking Balance
With her eyes covered, this woman may feel that there is not enough information to make a decision.
This card indicates that you are stuck for some reason. You may be maintaining the situation by putting up a facade and ignoring the underlying tension that exists.
How The Cards Come Together
Our theme this week is telling us that we will have some issues with authority. Our lives will revolve around work (company), government or father-figure (major family) matters.
In our approach to the week we are reminded to remain our charming selves and have an adventurous spirit when dealing with the authority figures…
Keep the ideas flowing and inspire yourself to take a chance. Think about changing your job, starting a project or opening up to a new spiritual adventure.
The challenge being that this is an uncomfortable position to be in, but you aren’t ready to do anything about it yet.
First you must face the truth. It is time to create balance in your life. Face reality and make the tough decisions. If you’re able to do this, good news is coming your way!
