    Hi Jeannie,

    I would love to take you up on your offer.

    Hmm, my question….

    What should I know about my spiritual path?

    I couldn’t very well pick a career question, since I just spent a whole bit talking to you about it. ;)

    Much love,
    Stephanie

    Hey Jeannie,
    Do you still need another person because I also would love to take you up on your offer! :)

    My question is:

    Thank you so much!! :hearts:

    First I want to thank you for letting me read for you. It has been a while and I like to do them now an again to keep in the groove.
    Second I want to say that it was a weird week for me and it may have spilled over into your reading. As much as I tried to keep it on the question you asked, it seemed to take side streets. That being said, I am going to present the reading just like I received it. So please let me know if it jives with you or not.

    Here we go:

    For your question :“What should I know about my spiritual path?”I used the Celtic Cross spread & my Rider-Waite Tarot deck.

    Card #1: You & the question
    XVII The Star – reversed

    This card is often used for meditations. In the reversed position there is a period of stagnation. The spiritual waters are a little bit muddy. Stars shining are a little less brightly than they once were. It is all still there, but you have had a period of inactivity.

    Card #2: helps or explains card #1
    XI Justice

    You feel the need to honor your spirituality, but you feel unbalanced when you are not meditating and using your spiritual abilities. Your rational/intelligent side needs to be balanced with your spiritual side for you to feel happy and fulfilled. (also no need to judge yourself harshly for it)

    Card #3: The base of the problem/situation
    III the Empress – reversed

    Do you feel something is missing your life? There is an area of your life you don’t feel is quite there yet. Decide what it is you really want – only you have the ability to make that happen. I heard “You know what it is!”

    Card #4: Past lessons learned
    VIII Ace of Swords – reversed

    Your past lessons have or should have taught you to be gentle in situations. Putting other people’s feelings first and being diplomatic. The tongue can cut more severely than the sword.

    Card#5: Near future
    VIII Wands – reversed

    Feelings of insecurity or jealousy may arise in a situation. Instead of becoming angry – stop and step out of yourself for a moment and look at the situation. It will play out ok if you don’t let your emotions jump in the middle of it. It will all turn out to be nothing in the end. “A big misunderstanding”

    Card #6: more distant future
    IX the Hermit – reversed

    Don’t let feelings of loneliness lead you to foolish decisions. This is only temporary.

    Card #7: Yourself
    You feel your path has taken a slow down because you are missing some tools (perhaps opportunities, time, like-minded friends, etc.) Again only you can make that change.

    Card #8: External influences
    X Swords – reversed

    This card reversed is actually good. Good news! a new day is dawning and the sun is rising. The period of sleep/night/inactivity is over. Time to rise and shine. Get out and be with people who share your interest.

    Card #9: Hope & possibilities
    XX Judgement

    You are being awakened. The alarm clock is ringing. You are entering a time of spiritual revival.

    Card #10: Outcome or final message
    Page of Swords – reversed

    It is not on the card, but I sense that this page is wearing a blind fold and swing his sword in the dark. He is not getting any where and is drawing flies. The message here is that you can turn this card around! You can turn your current situation into anything you want it to be. Just remember you can’t make other people be what you want them to be. Follow your heart, the right people/person will come to you.

    Again, the reading felt a little muddy to me, but maybe it all makes sense to you.
    I think that the overall message is to continue prayer and meditation. Be with people who you really like and can share your interest and perspectives. Be respectful of other people’s points of view (I am sure you already are) and be open to what ever come your way.

    I hope this reading is helpful to you. I really want to hear your take on it. If it is too personal please feel free to PM me. Thanks again for volunteering. I really enjoy doing readings and miss it very much.

    Love & blessings, Jeannie:hearts::hearts:

    Amy, thank you for volunteering for a reading. I really enjoyed doing it for you.

    To start with I wrote your name and your question at the top of a sheet of notebook paper and went outside to meditate. (I prefer to do my readings outside whenever possible).

    I don’t know if it is a Scorpio thing, but you see, I too have been struggling with career decisions this week. While I was meditating, I received the answer “Let go and let God…” Well, I have been making myself notes today in the same notebook that I was about to do your reading and thought I was writing on the side that had my notes only it was your reading sheet. I started to erase it but thought no… I think it is for Amy too, soooo here it goes:

    For your question:“What do I need to know about decisions I have to make regarding my career.”I chose a 5 card spread and used my Rider-Waite Tarot deck.

    Card #1 – VII Cups – reversed
    You have several choices in front of you (2 that stand out more prominently). This card tells me you know which path you really want to take. If it were you and you alone involved, you would jump at it without any hesitation – right?

    Card #2 – XII the Hanged Man – reversed
    (I laughed when this card came up – you’ll see why in a minute)
    Amy, you want to make this change, but you are afraid of leaving someone or something behind. Letting go of the past & those in it – the familiar.
    You have a fabulous sense of adventure. The message of this card is “Let go and let God.” The hanged man is not tied to the tree, he can get down any time he chooses. It is only by an act of faith that he steps down & walks away – he can also walk back when ever he likes.
    The only reason you are stuck is that you are vacillating. Either way it will work out – you can’t go wrong.

    Card #3 – XX Judgement
    You have come to a point of evolution in your life. You have accomplished so much in your young life and you have oh so many wonderful things ahead of you. You are an old soul & very wise for your years. You have reached a point of fulfilling your goals and dreams & desires. Choose the path that feels right. this is a time of liberation and growth.

    Card #4 – X Wands
    This card talks of carrying a heavy load. Be careful not to take on too many of other people’s burdens. Yes you have the ability to handle it all, but at what cost? You have to do what is best for you (and your S/O?).

    Card #5 XXI The World – reversed
    You may feel frustration and impatience trying to decide on the right path or fear of making the wrong choice & regretting it road not taken, Ask yourself “What is the lesson I am learning from this journey?”
    Colette Barron-Reid said: “FEAR = Forgetting Everything’s All Right”

    Your decision may involve travel or a big move. You have the need to please everyone and not step on any one’s toes, but in this case – you have to do what is right for you.

    I hope this reading is helpful to you. Please let me know what you think and thanks again for the opportunity to read for you.
    Love & blessings,

    Jeannie,

    Thank you so much for your reading. I’m going to type up an appropriate response tonight after my shift. Sorry to make you wait, but wait til you read it!

    Hi Jeannie!
    Thank you so much for the reading! WOW is all I can say! I feel like you definitely picked up on issues regarding my career.

    I find it interesting how you used the word “struggle” because lately I have been using that word to describe my current unemployment status. Not only have I been struggling to find a job since December, I’m also struggling the ideas of volunteering for a year or pursuing a career (teaching) which is a different route from my degree. I just graduated college this past May and its been extremely frustrating trying to find a job in the communications field. I’ve been applying for jobs for the past 7 months and have not had an interview. Granted I understand the state of the economy and its literally the worst time to graduate with the current job market, but I guess I felt I would have landed a job by now. It’s hard because a lot of my friends (with different majors) have jobs and are living in their new apartments, while I’m still searching and living at home. I think the thing that scares me the most is when I turn 23 in November I’ll no longer have health insurance, so at this point I’ll take any job with benefits! Though I must say my quest to find a job has been a learning experience. I’ve learned more about myself and the type of job I am seeking. When I was in college I originally thought my dream job was working in the media/public relations/journalism field but now I’m not sure if that’s exactly what I want to do. I had a wonderful internship at a major television network in Philadelphia where I learned so much, but after a service trip down to New Orleans definitely gave me a different perspective on life and made me rethink my career goals. (for example, i went new orleans in the spring of 2006 to help rebuild homes and when I returned in the fall of 2008 to rebuild homes again for hurricane victims, it was disheartening to see that as much as there had been improvements, parts of new orleans looked like the hurricane had hit yesterday. definitely opened my eyes to many things and made me re-evaulate my career goals.) there are some days that I can’t see myself stuck in a 9 to 5 job in a cubicle and also dealing with traffic. and then pretty much everyone who I babysit for are convinced I am destined to be a teacher. i love kids and it’s not that i’m against teaching but I guess I’m not sure if teaching is my calling. If there’s anything I want to teach it would be Italian since I minored in it and just love the language. I have applied to a few educational positions but realize if I am serious about teaching I have to get certified. I have been applying for subing jobs just so I can get a feel for it so I’m not wasting money/time/energy to pursue something that isn’t for me. So aside from these 2 different career paths, I have also been thinking about doing a year of volunteer service. I’ve actually been pondering this decision since the fall but still have not come to a decision. As much as I love to volunteer, it’s a huge committment. I’ve been considering a catholic volunteer organization related to my college and it’s just a matter of deciding if it’s for me. it does have a lot of positives–monthly stipend, benefits, housing, food etc but it is simple community living–definitely a more spiritual experience. part of me wants to do take a leap of faith and do it, but another part of me is hoping that a job offer will come around and I would take the more traditional approach to life after college. i’ve talked to a few people about my options (even a few who have volunteered for a year) and feel that by me not finding a job yet, it’s god’s way of telling me to serve for a year. i’m just really torn. as you know I am a scorpio (and also have a lot of scorpio energy in my natal chart) but also have a gemini moon so i constantly analyze every future career move and definitely feel conflicts between my head and my heart if that makes any sense. i’m also the type of person that has to have a plan and for the first time in my life i dont have anything planned. it’s definitely been teaching me that sometimes you can’t plan everything. so as you can see the “let go and let god” quote is definitely some great words of wisdom, so thank you :) ok so with all that being said I will respond to each card…


    Card #1 – VII Cups – reversed
    You have several choices in front of you (2 that stand out more prominently). This card tells me you know which path you really want to take. If it were you and you alone involved, you would jump at it without any hesitation – right?

    Yes I do have several choices mainly 2 (stay home and pursue a career in communications/teaching or volunteer for a year of service.) i think you are right, i probably would jump at it without any hesitation but since there are other factors i have to keep in mind, i think that’s definitely holding me back…

    Card #2 – XII the Hanged Man – reversed
    (I laughed when this card came up – you’ll see why in a minute)
    Amy, you want to make this change, but you are afraid of leaving someone or something behind. Letting go of the past & those in it – the familiar.
    You have a fabulous sense of adventure. The message of this card is “Let go and let God.” The hanged man is not tied to the tree, he can get down any time he chooses. It is only by an act of faith that he steps down & walks away – he can also walk back when ever he likes.
    The only reason you are stuck is that you are vacillating. Either way it will work out – you can’t go wrong.

    Yes, you definitely hit the nail on the head. there are times when i do want to make this change (to volunteer) but i am afraid to take this leap of faith and leaving behind someone/something. part of me does not want to leave my friends or my town. i guess since i’ve been away living at school for the past 4 years it’s nice to finally live at home again. i absolutely love my town and the feeling is definitely mutual among my friends who have stayed here. i also recently got a new puppy Lilly since my other dog Daisy passed away in Feb. there’s also a potential love interest (would have asked you to do a reading on that but the career issue is definitely more on my mind lol) but who knows what is going on with that anyway, and as a feminist i am against having a male hold me back so i’m not just sticking around for him, it’s more of a variety of reasons. i think it is a matter of letting go of the familar/past and i realize if i did choose to volunteer for a year, everyone would still be here when I would return.

    Card #3 – XX Judgement
    You have come to a point of evolution in your life. You have accomplished so much in your young life and you have oh so many wonderful things ahead of you. You are an old soul & very wise for your years. You have reached a point of fulfilling your goals and dreams & desires. Choose the path that feels right. this is a time of liberation and growth.

    yes i do feel like this. i definitely feel like i have grown into myself and will keep on evolving. i have accomplished a lot throughout my college career, and I am very proud of my academic acheivements. I am definitely transitioning–i’m so used to living the college life–i miss it so much and just trying to adjust to life after college. its been discouraging not receiving any interviews from my job applications because everyone tells me what an impressive resume I have, yet it doesn’t feel like it’s striking anyone. also in college i was involved with many campus activities and i guess i’m just not used to not doing anything productive? i guess i feel like i am destined for great things but just have not found what i’m looking for yet. i basically just want to put my degree in action. still trying to figure out my dreams/goals/desires. so yes it is definitely a time of growth as i continue to figure my life out.

    Card #4 – X Wands
    This card talks of carrying a heavy load. Be careful not to take on too many of other people’s burdens. Yes you have the ability to handle it all, but at what cost? You have to do what is best for you (and your S/O?).

    Currently not sure what the heavy load is…maybe just the pressures from my family about finding a job? and i’m the sensitive type that can take on others burdens but at the moment cant think of anything specific. i am an over achiever and multitasker so taking on a lot definitely described my college life. i guess in regards to my volunteer decision, i also think what other people will think of it since it is not the traditional job.

    Card #5 XXI The World – reversed
    You may feel frustration and impatience trying to decide on the right path or fear of making the wrong choice & regretting it road not taken, Ask yourself “What is the lesson I am learning from this journey?”
    Colette Barron-Reid said: “FEAR = Forgetting Everything’s All Right”

    once again you hit the nail on the head. i have been feeling a lot of frustration lately and impatience on deciding the right path and yes fear of making the wrong choice/regretting the road not taken is absolutely correct. with my gemini moon, i over analyze everything and get impatient with myself that i can’t make a decision. i think part of my indecisiveness comes from fear of the unknown and if i’m making the right choice. it’s also like i don’t want to be naive and think a job will come soon so then i won’t volunteer, but then i’m afraid september will come, i’ll still be unemployed and will kick myself for not volunteering. thank you for the Colette Barron-Reid quote.

    Your decision may involve travel or a big move. You have the need to please everyone and not step on any one’s toes, but in this case – you have to do what is right for you.
    absolutely. the decision does involve relocating to another state so i would be moving and yes i do have the need to please everyone (specifically my parents) and realize i need to make a decision.

    Thank you again Jeannie. Hope I was able to validate the messages. You are really on target! ;)
    I will definitely let you know how things turn out.
    Lots of love,
    Amy

    WOW. Thank you for your in depth response. My daughter is finishing up school in NY and left a job were she was miserable (and not in her chosen field) but now she is struggling to find another one and worrying about making ends meet. I pray for you both to find the right path. I hope the reading gives you some perspective that helps you make your decision. I can’t wait to see how it all works out for you. I am betting that where ever you go and what ever you do – you will be just fine.

    Hi Jeannie,

    Never worry about taking side streets when reading for me. The way my mind and energy work, I’m constantly taking “side streets” and tangents the way I live my life. Most people and friends can’t keep up with me and how fast my mind can work. We’ll be talking about one thing, and then I’ll jump to another so fast they can’t figure out how I even worked it in. ;)

    You and I just had that conversation about career, so I had to pick another question. This is the one that jumped out for me. My life literally is this, go to bed at 3am, sleep til 1pm, shower, go to work from 4pm til midnight or 12:30pm, and back in bed. And since I don’t have a set schedule, my days off are never back to back. I don’t have much time for my spirituality. It’s hard for me to admit, but I have less time now than when I was working 2 jobs. And here is where I’m going to tie this whole spiel into your reading…

    Card #1: You & the question
    XVII The Star – reversed
    This card is often used for meditations. In the reversed position there is a period of stagnation. The spiritual waters are a little bit muddy. Stars shining are a little less brightly than they once were. It is all still there, but you have had a period of inactivity.
    I have to tell you. I picked up my tarot cards for the first time in about a year 3 days before you read for me. Talk about a year of stagnation. Do you know what card was the first to be drawn: Yes, the Star card. That’s how I knew you were going to give me a heck of a reading. I read for a friend. I still have it, but you’re right, I’m a bit rusty.

    Card #2: helps or explains card #1
    XI Justice
    You feel the need to honor your spirituality, but you feel unbalanced when you are not meditating and using your spiritual abilities. Your rational/intelligent side needs to be balanced with your spiritual side for you to feel happy and fulfilled. (also no need to judge yourself harshly for it)

    I’m an Aquarian and am known for my intelligent and rational side. However, like you said, I’ll let it rule me if I’m not balanced and use my spiritual side as well. Most people know me for my brain and hard work, not my spirituality. I also get judged for my “known” spirituality and how it doesn’t follow the mainstream, so sometimes that falls into place when I go dormant for a time.

    Card #3: The base of the problem/situation
    III the Empress – reversed
    Do you feel something is missing your life? There is an area of your life you don’t feel is quite there yet. Decide what it is you really want – only you have the ability to make that happen. I heard “You know what it is!”

    Oh, I know something is missing in my life in a huge way. I’m alone and have been without a relationship/partner for almost one year now. In alot of ways, by now I was supposed to be married and moved to another part of the state. My family life is wonderful, my career is going to hit the ceiling soon, and I have no one to share my heart with anymore. This has hit home as I often think about what I did wrong. Though, everyone who has known me has told me it wasn’t my fault at all and there was nothing I could have done to stop it from happening. This has basically shattered my self-confidence and has taken this year just to explore the possibilities again.

    Card #4: Past lessons learned
    VIII Ace of Swords – reversed
    Your past lessons have or should have taught you to be gentle in situations. Putting other people’s feelings first and being diplomatic. The tongue can cut more severely than the sword.

    Umm, I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m still learning this lesson. I have a quick tongue and it does get me into trouble. Unfortunately, I have never been gentle in any situation. I’m a no-nonsense, let’s get to the point type of person. Excuses do nothing for me, get to results positive or negative, just don’t stand there. ;)

    Card#5: Near future
    VIII Wands – reversed
    Feelings of insecurity or jealousy may arise in a situation. Instead of becoming angry – stop and step out of yourself for a moment and look at the situation. It will play out ok if you don’t let your emotions jump in the middle of it. It will all turn out to be nothing in the end. “A big misunderstanding”

    I’m going to assume this is more towards my job/career than my spirituality. This happens at least once a month and is a vicious cycle in the restaurant business. It has happened to me before where I have opened my mouth, regretted it, couldn’t apologize, and the whole thing blew up in my face. I have learned pretty recently to step out and look at it from a different perspective, especially since one day I’ll probably own the restaurant I’m working in. I’ve learned to look at things through a boss’s eyes, instead of an employee and it has helped me to stop fights before they happen.

    Card #6: more distant future
    IX the Hermit – reversed
    Don’t let feelings of loneliness lead you to foolish decisions. This is only temporary.

    I don’t know if I like the idea that I’m going to be alone for a bit longer. I know it’s temporary, but I don’t want to be known as the crazy cat lady who works weird hours and is never home. ;) However, I have one thing going for me. I never make hasty decisions. I have alot of Libra in my chart as well and tend to think things to death.

    Card #7: Yourself
    You feel your path has taken a slow down because you are missing some tools (perhaps opportunities, time, like-minded friends, etc.) Again only you can make that change.

    Jeannie, you forgot to put which card fell in this position. I was just curious as to what was drawn. Yeah, my spiritual path has definitely taken a slow down. There’s not a lot of people I can talk to about my spirituality anymore. Like-minded friends have come and gone…for example this message board has definitely quieted down. Opportunities to share my experiences have fallen by the way-side. Yeah, I can understand why I am stagnant. But I know, I can’t be shy anymore and have to get back into the swing of things and do what I love to do.

    Card #8: External influences
    X Swords – reversed
    This card reversed is actually good. Good news! a new day is dawning and the sun is rising. The period of sleep/night/inactivity is over. Time to rise and shine. Get out and be with people who share your interest.

    As I have said, I’ve gotten my cards out again. I’ve been drawing for myself and close friends. This has always been my first step. My quiet room is almost finished and am reading to start building up positive energy in there. I do want to find a place where I can go and worship the way I believe, which is mostly along the Spiritualist viewpoints, but am scared to death to go by myself. Also, I have an extreme tendency to sleep long periods of time, so going to “church” at 9am or even 10:30am is extremely early for me to get up for.

    Card #9: Hope & possibilities
    XX Judgement
    You are being awakened. The alarm clock is ringing. You are entering a time of spiritual revival.

    It’s all about the timing. I wouldn’t have asked for a reading if I didn’t need to hear what it had to say. I also wouldn’t have picked up my own deck and thumbed through it, if I wasn’t meant to do so. So, absolutely, I agree with you. It is a time for spiritual renewal.

    Card #10: Outcome or final message
    Page of Swords – reversed
    It is not on the card, but I sense that this page is wearing a blind fold and swing his sword in the dark. He is not getting any where and is drawing flies. The message here is that you can turn this card around! You can turn your current situation into anything you want it to be. Just remember you can’t make other people be what you want them to be. Follow your heart, the right people/person will come to you.

    It’s hard to hear, but I can’t wait around anymore. It’s time I took a more active role in my own development and affect it the way it’s supposed to go. (Whatever that may be…) The right people will come around if I just have faith.

    This is what I got from the reading. I hope it makes a tad bit more sense to you. I received alot more major arcana cards than I care to admit which means I need to start working on the more important parts of my life lesson. For a while there, I just kept getting the minor ones which still teach important lessons, but you know what I mean. Lots and lots to think about, but thank you for a bit of an eye-opener and wake up call. :)

    Love and Light,
    Stephanie

    OOPPs sorry ’bout that Card #7 is VIII Pentacles – reversed
    Card #7: Yourself
    You feel your path has taken a slow down because you are missing some tools (perhaps opportunities, time, like-minded friends, etc.) Again only you can make that change.
    Jeannie, you forgot to put which card fell in this position. I was just curious as to what was drawn. Yeah, my spiritual path has definitely taken a slow down.

But I know, I can’t be shy anymore and have to get back into the swing of things and do what I love to do.

    Stephanie, it was a pleasure doing the reading for you. I miss all the activity around here. I miss doing readings, too. I used to work 6:30 pm to 7:30 am shift at the hospital so I know what it is like to live on a schedule at odds with the rest of the world. I have been working really crazy hours on the day shift so it is only a little bit better. I feel that I have not been following my true path lately and have been really struggling with the politics of the hospital system. This last week has been insane too. I really want to find a more spiritual job, but have been afraid to leave this one during this economic climate. I also live in a not so spiritualist friendly area, so most of my friends & neighbors have not a clue. So, I wish you all the best with your job and meditation and if you want to chat or do readings or talk tarot I am still around here.
    Love & bessings, Jeannie:hearts:

    Hey Amy!

    Congratulations! You graduated. Not that I thought you wouldn’t, it just went by so fast.

    Don’t worry, you will have a good job very soon, and not in either of those areas I think. Just a feeling.

    This year seems to be screaming by me like an off course rocket, and I’m always ducking.:froggie:

    Jeannie,

    Do you have room for another reading anytime in the near future?

    Nice to see you again.

    Hi Jeannie,

    I guess I could use a good all around general reading. You can hit as many areas as you like. A little inspiration wouldn’t hurt either.

    How’s Monica doing? We still remember the cruise with chuckles and just plain delight. We both want to repeat the experience before either of us need walkers though.

    Let me know if you need any info and I will glad to oblige.

    Fairiedust away!
