Three card reading for Monday, January 25, 2016 is from The Victorian Steampunk Tarot by Liz Dean and Bev Speight. Cico Books – 2014
The High Priestess – Four of Beetles (Pentacles) – The Magician
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl
You’ll receive information that you will want to keep to yourself, for now. The secret is welcome news and the source is reliable, but you will need to sit on it for awhile longer. The right time and/or place for you to reveal this news will present itself soon. In the meantime allow the news to sink in and bring a secret smile to your face.
The message of The High Priestess is “Let your intuition guide you.” In the image, the crystal ball tells us that this is the card of clairvoyance, while the sacred book denotes knowledge. The pomegranate fruit represents creativity, and the Moon symbolizes the feminine principle, the psyche, dreams, and otherworldly wisdom. The High Priestess’s faces is enclosed in a locket, representing privacy and enclosure. Pay attention to your dreams and other messages from your sixth sense. Trust your knowing. (pg. 16)
The Four of Beetles (Pentacles) in traditional Tarot is sometimes called the Miser. On the other hand, some see this card as being careful with your resources and saving for a rainy day. The Miser aspect to me shows the fear of running low on resources or the fear of being destitute. “You are entering a phase during which money and security are important.” Because this suit heavily addresses finances and the material realm, it’s rarely seen in any other light. Many times though I see this card as conservative, (a word that can leave a bad taste in your mouth, lol). But in this case, it speaks to keeping the information or secret close, not spilling the beans. Bank it for now.
The Magician message conveyed is to express your ideas and take action. To me this signals the time (very soon) when you should spill the beans and knowing this to be very advantageous to you. “In your reading, the Magician shows creativity, action, and positive change. You will make practical decisions while your lateral thinking will help you solve problems so that you can make progress in your life. What you desire can manifest.” (page 15) Note the aloft air balloon in the image. Don’t be surprised that once your secret has been shared, that it takes you to unexpected places. All offers are worth exploring.
