The "I'm stuck" spread

Postby Aoibhegreine » 04 Jul 2016, 11:32

Hi all

Some added insight would be greatly appreciated here please. The spread is quite simple but I would just like some affirmation that I'm reading it correctly and not seeing what I want to see. This comes after an argument with my Mother which was very carthic for me but not necessarily great for a future relationship but at least it cleared the air. The spread is done in relation to me moving forward out of this rut I've been in for 5 years. I won't provide my insight until after just in case I influence the reading. It is as follows and I used the Legacy Divine deck:

1) Your Current situation: 8 of Coins

2) Why you are stuck: 5 of cups

3) The Key to getting unstuck: The Fool

4) How to not get restuck: King of Coins

I also had 2 jumpers and pulled a shadow card (taken from the bottom of the deck) which are:

Jumpers: The Hermit, 3 of Wands

Shadow: Strength


Thank you.
Aoi

I don't get an overall sense of the reading, so I'll just mention the things that jumped out at me. And bear in mind that I "see" Tarot in standard RWS.

1) I recently pulled the 8 of Coins and it actually flagged up "stuck in a rut". Doing the same thing over and over. If you do what you did, you'll get what you got. :)
If finances are an issue it might suggest that your income and therefore your options are limited at this time.
2) Holding onto the past. I don't think I need to elaborate.
3) Follow your heart, take a chance, but...
4) Make sure you've got your material/financial situation sorted. You don't need to have stacks of money, but you do need to be in control.

The jumpers and the shadow I feel are probably too closely tied to your psyche/energy for me to attempt.

That makes so much sense, thank you. Couldn't figure out that 5 of cups or that King but that resonates with my feelings so thank you.

ok, i'll take a gander at it.

it would seem to me that the cards indicate that, despite the rut for five years, you're on the path you should be on. the eight of pentacles implies a steady road to getting what you need. it implies that you are really working toward what you want, but that five of cups indicates you've butted your head up against the wall of disappointment (in particular, you will not take just any job or living situation, but instead it is very important you are true to yourself). i like the fool, and the king of pentacles together. i wonder if the cards suggest you buckle down, take a risk. perhaps take something that you would not normally find satisfying, but may lead you to something you will find more in line with what you want down the road?

i hope i am some help. i have not been on the forums much, so i'm not sure where everyone is on their journeys. very best luck!

Thanks prc, that does help. The fool seems to fit with my current intuition so I think I shall follow him for a bit. :D

Hi Aoibhegreine
Had a ponder and wouldn't usually butt in and comment as a newbie but I think the Fool means just try your luck, don't over think things. Just go for it if you see something (a new job for example) with childlike optimism. Trust in the universe to stop you stepping over that ledge! See it all as an adventure.

.............Obviously............... use sound judgement, but you get my drift of what I think your key to getting unstuck is.

Thanks, Dandelionwine. Already on that path. :D Just have to keep on letting go which is harder than it appears.

That looks pretty obvious to me Sweetie.

You're looking to have a better relationship with yourself (2 of cups) but you focusing on the wrong thing. The 4 of cups tells me your hoping for something to happen, maybe even awaiting a sign. The Death card says the only way to get unstuck is to transform your life or change something. Might be as simple as workng on that 4. The 9 of wands say to just keep going.

Good luck.
