Today is Valentine’s Day. Rather than doing a reading on personal relationship, I decided to do one on my relationship to a project that I just began, outside of the Tarot field. My question was: “What do I need to do to make this work successful?” I did a three card reading, with undefined positions … I simply let the story unfold.
The Nine of Cups shows flow and movement – In the LWB, Law notes that fish are associated with health, prosperity and good fortune. There is also a highly emotional charge to this card, as there was to my taking on this project. In a word – it made me happy! And … it came to me, I did not seek it out.
At the very beginning of this project, when I was experiencing my highest joy, I also experienced my deepest sorrow. It literally hurt my heart. I allowed that hurt to be a learning experience. made a couple of decisions based on it,and moved on.
The Queen of Cups is all about creativity, as is the project that I am working on. I need to follow my intuition, and my heart. I have followed my passion, now I need to follow my intuitive instincts and allow myself to soar!

Great reading. I currently use the Shadowscapes deck myself, and the imagery is beautiful. And I love the openness of your spread. It’s nice to just have a story sometimes, without the structure of defined positions.
Hopefully your creative project goes well!
Thank you for the kind words! I adore this deck! As for my project – I am surprised at how well it is going,and how quickly that is happening! Life is good!
