Second Reading

In June 1990, I did an Other Reading about Jon and his situation. The events which had transpired were so dramatic that I felt drawn to see what the tarot would say about them.

In March, Jon met with a judge who was so convinced by the validity of his search that she ruled the adoption files should be opened. Through hard work, Jon located his birth parents within three weeks. His father was reluctant to speak with his at first, but his mother welcomed his warmly after a surprise meeting in a distant city.

I truly felt that Jon had realized the positive outcome projected for him in the first reading.

Jon and him birth mother quickly formed a close relationship. While Jon was staying with him mother, him birth father reestablished contact. Him parents spoke to each other for the first time in over thirty years, and soon they renewed their original romantic relationship! The question I wrote was:

What is the nature and cause of the intertwining life dramas of Jon, him birth mother and him birth father?

Here are the cards I chose:

Position
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Cards Drawn Page Swords Four of Swords Five of Cups Three of Pentacles Queen Cups Four of Wands Lovers Moon Nine of Wands Five of Pentacles

We again see a Page as Card 1. Jon's situation is still an opportunity to act, but this time he is facing a challenge. Jon must be truthful with himself and approach this situation with fortitude and clarity of thought (Swords).

The Four of Swords as Card 2 tells him how to support himself through this period. He must examine his actions and motivations scrupulously. He must also nurture a still, quiet center in himself so that he can ride this emotional roller coaster.

In Cards 3 and 5 we see the links between this reading and the first. In Card 5, we again see the "dream mother" - the Queen of Cups. It seems that Jon has not let this ideal go, but has instead placed it firmly in his conscious mind. He is thinking and feeling about his birth mother most of the time.

The Five of Cups showed that transmuting emotional loss is a key lesson for Jon in this drama. Now, this card has moved to Card 3. The regret Jon feels about his birth has become lodged firmly in his unconscious.

The Three of Pentacles as Card 4 suggests that the teamwork Jon has enjoyed with his birth parents may become a thing of the past. The position of the figures on this card is revealing. Two are together while the other stands alone. The solitary figure is half turned away as if she can't decide if she is part of the twosome or not.

The Four of Wands as Card 6 is cause for celebration. Whatever else Jon's situation may bring, it seems that the near future will be exciting.

Cards 7 and 8 carry extra weight because they are major arcana cards. They spell out an important conflict between Jon and his environment.

Unfortunately, Jon's environment is one of fear and illusion. The Moon symbolizes the uncertainties that arise when events are not what they seem and people do not mean what they say. In this case, there is no willful deceit, just lack of clarity. No one means any harm, but everyone is unsure of their real needs.

It appears that Jon is heading toward some rejection as pictured in the Five of Pentacles (Card 10). The lack of unity showing up throughout this reading suggests that Jon could find himelf left out in the cold, shunned as the odd person out.

Jon's strength lies with the truth. The Page of Swords (Card 1) reminds him of the central need for clarity and honesty. In the meantime, Jon should prepare for the worse. The Nine of Wands as Card 9 tells her she must be defensive and prepare to draw on her hidden reserves.
