Post-Beltane Reading

After yesterday's and this morning's rituals (check out my vlog for details), I wanted to do another reading to see where I should be headed, spiritually.  Having performed my first ever ritual with my husband, where are we going and where am I going?

I drew three cards from the vibrant Tarot of the Sidhe (Schiffer, 2011) to look at this.  I decided to use a method I saw demonstrated by Corinne Kenner at a Tarot Conference a couple of years back.  She suggested that the same reading be interpreted for different perspectives, to see what nuances came out of the cards that way, and it's a technique I enjoy.

With regards to the path ahead spiritually with my DH, what I see is the suggestion that at the moment I need to keep things on quite a rational level for him (Dreamer Queen - the Gift of Reason).  I tried to find psychological, or other logical explanations for him to explain the reasoning behind various elements of the ritual we did.  I think that made it feel a bit less intimidating for him.

Moving forward though, I mustn't take responsibility for his spiritual path, or his choice whether or not to continue (Warrior Ten).  I can't take on the task of joining him to the path, but must let him make his own way.  What I can do, though, is express my own truth, without fear or hesitation (Warrior Seven), and ask for what I want, he can always say no :)

In terms of my own path, I think I need to take some time to do some reading (Dreamer Queen) and research a few things.  That way I can decide what rituals I want to do next, and spend some time thinking about my path.  I have just started re-reading Starhawk's Spiral Dance, and am enjoying it just as much as the first time.  I notice different things this time round, and I think there are a number of subjects I would do well to revisit.  I am also researching something I've never done before: making a wand! It's an exciting project, and I'll put up a vlog post about it when it's done :)

What I must avoid is making any of this feel like a responsibility I have to take on, rather than choosing (Warrior Ten).  For instance, I see this blog and vlog as giving me the opportunity to explore and share my path.  However, I have decided not to commit to a fixed schedule of posts, that would be taking on an unnecessary feeling of responsibility, whereas I want this to be an inspiration and joy for myself.

What I will do, though, is be willing to stand up for what feels important to me, for my soul's truth (Warrior Seven).  I won't let anything stand in my way in this exploration of my spiritual path.

This feels like a very helpful reading, clarifying what I can best do and avoid so as to move forward both on my personal path and with my husband.

Blessed Be!
