I recently did a 3-card reading for a client in which I asked the Ghost Tarot by David Corsi (Lo Scarabeo) what it could tell her about any spirits that are around her at this time.
After doing that reading, I thought it sounded like a cool idea to do one for myself. So I did!
The Question: What can you tell me about any spirits that are around me at this time?
Before I present the cards that came forward to answer this question, I have to exclaim at the similarities between my reading and the one I did for my client. Both readings contained one Major Arcana card, and in both readings, there were connections between each of the cards and the zodiac sign Sagittarius (or the planet Jupiter, which rules Sagittarius). I don’t necessarily attribute any significance to that – but it’s interesting!
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE: The Spirit of Fate. Linked with the planet Jupiter.
This spirit remains with me as the Wheel turns, between highs and lows, failures and successes, death and rebirth. It is not a spirit that needs to “move on.” Rather, I feel it is a spirit that is part of this world as much as any other. As I mentioned, Jupiter is the ruling planet for Sagittarius, which happens to be my Sun sign.
KNIGHT OF WANDS: The Spirit of the Traveller. Linked with three decans between Scorpio and Sagittarius.
The sign Sagittarius is known as the sign of the traveller, and the Ninth House (associated with Sagittarius) is the House of Long-Distance Travel and Philosophy. The spirit represented by this card shows me the vastness of the world that lies ahead of me and behind me.
EIGHT OF WANDS: “Freedom is priceless. And boundless.” Linked with Mercury in Sagittarius.
The saying for this card in the LWB is “Freedom is priceless. And boundless.” And yes, Sagittarius is known for its need and desire for freedom and independence. I love the image on this card, of the golden, glowing woman floating through the sky over hills and rivers, free as the birds who accompany her.
I would be remiss not to mention that Sagittarius was my father’s Sun sign (I was born on his birthday). He passed away in 1998, and I can’t help feeling that these cards somewhat represent his continued presence – not because his spirit “can’t move on,” but because it *can* visit and inhabit this realm as easily as any other.
