Last time we talked about identifying with a card, chosen either at random or by visual selection and being open to any sub-conscious messages that card might suggest.
I talked about how it might be if I drew the Three of Rods and concentrated on what the design is saying to me. I began with the ideas – suggested by the design – of: concentration, energy, beautiful colours, velvet smoothness, peace. Excitement at holding this beautiful egg-shape.
A double helix of energy is rising from the design. This prompted the question:have I made it? I get the sense that it may be alive! Surely it is some miraculous, alchemical secret. My subconscious has informed me directly that I have access to a wonderful, living secret.
But what if I drew the Three of Rods and it was upside down or reversed?
If the card is reversed (appears upside down) the intuitive message you need to take from it is modified. In the case of the Three of Rods, I would still have access to the creativity or beautiful secret, but I need to be aware that there may be some blockage.
At this stage, I need to stay in the reverie, letting my mind flow freely around any further images that might come to me.
I might get the sense I am trying too hard to control an outcome, or that there is some outstanding task to be completed. If no guidance comes, I will pass the issue over to my higher and unconscious selves, and forget it for the time being, waiting for synchronicities or dream messages to help clarify the situation later.
My name is Cilla Conway. I am an artist who has been working with and taking inspiration from The Tarot for more years than I care to remember.
In 1981, I completed my own pack, called The Intuitive Tarot ( http://www.theintuitivetarot.com ). More recently I started a blog called http://www.tarotcardmeaningsonline.com, which is my attempt to give back for everything The Tarot has given me over the years.
