Full general reading
This reading was requested by a friend who had a couple of questions. Because of the nature of the questions, I decided to go with a general reading, and will do other readings for question areas if needed.
I chose to do this reading with the Sacred Rose tarot by Johanna Gargiulo-Sherman.
The King of Cups reprsents what is in their heart. They are compassionate and caring, and may even be a very strong empath. They wear their heart on their sleeve, especially right now due to the circumstances. They are extremely emotional about something that is going on in their life right now.
The Hierophant represents how people view them. People look up to them, both spiritually and on a mundane level. Other expect this person to have all of the answers, but they are on a quest of their own right now, to find answers for themselves. Never the less, people are still needy and expect the querent to take charge and do everything for them.
The Hanged Man represents where the querent has been. The querent has been standing at a crossroads for quite some time. I do not believe they were as worried about which direction to take as they were in simply making the right choice for long term potential. The querent went into a sort of suspended state, and allowed their higher self to make a decision. It was somewhat of a 'testing' period, or an informative 'time out'. The querent made their choice and moved forward, leaving unnecessary baggage behind.
The Eight of Swords was the health card for the querent. I believe the querent is mentally exhausted due to stress, and may possibly be clinically depressed. The querent should be very careful, as this could quickly contribute to other health issues.
The Ace of Swords represents who the querent really is. The querent is very intelligent and strong. Logic and balance are a huge part of who they are, so they are struggling to deal with the current situation because it isn't balanced or logical. They will be able to pull through it, but it's going to be difficult for awhile longer. However, it will all work out in the end.
The Wheel of Fortune represents the querent's love. They are having lots of ups and downs in their love life right now. It's a vicious cycle, but in the end, it will all work out for the best for both of them.
The Nine of Swords represents the querent's relationships with both family and friends. The querent is so wrapped up in their own problems right now that family and friends have been put on the back burner. The querent should be careful not to neglect them for too long. They need them in their life.
The Emperor represents what the querent wants. There is a male figure in the querent's life (partner, father figure, boss, etc.) and the querent wants them to 'step up' and take control of a situation. The querent doesn't want it to all be on their shoulders. Whoever this is isn't living up to the querents expectations or needs.
The Moon represents the querent's work situation. If things continue as they are right now with work, the querent can expect problems. There will be hidden secret changes - things will not be what they appear to be. This will result in illusion and deceit/deception.
The Ten of Cups represents the outcome for the querent. I cannot imagine drawing a better card in a general reading for an outcome. A good life is in store for the querent, even if they continue the path they are currently on. This is a very positive card both emotionally and physically.
