Deck: Black Cats Tarot
Created by: tarotofthekittenofblade
What am I holding onto?
King of Wands – vision, honor, will-power
I am holding onto an ideal that pleases both me and my family. I will not be thought less of in my family’s eyes. If I could magically will it to be so, then it will be. But I’m only human and can create only that which I have the materials for. I may have dreams about harmony in the family, but for right now I need to hold onto my honor.
What can I do to let it go?
Five of Cups – loss, despair, bereavement
Lose that vision of being one big happy family. We will never be that way again. It’s going to rip me through to my core because I grew up on family being the number one important thing… but when family is the one to hurt you and not apologize? It’s time to let go of that.
How can I take control again?
X – The Wheel of Fortune – life cycles, destiny, a turning point
I can get my life back by letting life, the universe, and everything do it’s thing. Whatever it may be, I just need to let things happen. This family meeting is definitely a turning point in the dynamic of the family, in how I see things, in how my sisters see things. But for me to feel like I’m not the victim for once, I need life to take it’s course.
What do I need to do to move forward?
Page of Swords – guardian, responsibilities, virtue
If I can’t have my family to support me, I need to look to other venues. My responsibilities at work will still be there, I can pay attention to them. My spirituality will still be with me, I can focus on that for a while. My own life truths that are still solid can be something I can lean on when I need someone or something to help me when my family won’t.
How can I use this to help me?
XVII – The Star – hope, renewal, serenity
Getting past the family meeting is going to be hard, but I’ll know that, after some time, I’ll be able to look up and see my true path again. And knowing where I’m going will give me that sense of hope I see when I look at the night sky. That serenity that, may not now, but things will soon be okay. This won’t last forever.
tarotofthekittenofblade: I liked it earlier, but went back through to find it. I would have been disappointed if you hadn’t of used the black cats!! So cute!!
mutant-wolf2: There were a few spreads I specifically knew I wanted to use the Black Cats, and yours was definitely one of them! I really liked this spread, too. It’s very clear and to the point.
tarotofthekittenoftheblade: This, the crucifigo, and jump – mario – jump made lots of people go, “eeeehhh”.
I’m so happy you completed it too!!
mutant-wolf2: The only spread I was nervous about was Jump-Mario-Jump because of how many cards other people were pulling, but then I saw someone (probably the creator) mention cutting the deck multiple times. But still, nine cards is a lot.
Oh gosh! I thought after moving my stuff out I didn’t think I would finish! I was so sad! But I’m so happy I did! I was around for the first spread-a-day last year, but was too intimidated to do it. I did say in a few posts that if there ever was another one that I would definitely participate.
And I did!
tarotofthekittenofblade: I said the same thing! I was finishing school and working, so.
I was nervous about jump mario jump, but decided to keep going.
mutant-wolf2: Yay tarot! I didn’t know how much fun it would be!
