I did a card spread yesterday and the day before yesterday asking the Gods for guidance.
A while back, the cards looked like I was leaving a bad situation:
Hestia chose the Fool, Hecate chose the Six of Swords, and Hermes chose the Page of Swords. I’m not sure what I’m running from exactly. Maybe bad habits? A bad situation at work? I’m thinking of leaving a job at school in favor for another one because the one I’m training for seems to be a better fit for me.
Yesterday, Hestia chose two cards: Eight of Cups and Two of Swords. Hecate chose Eight of Pentacles and Hermes chose Two of Cups. I’m thinking that two and eight are important. So I had to look them up.
Two means partnership and eight means “focus.”
I did finally do a spell for a magical human partner/friend/colleague.
The Eight of Cups shows that I’m leaving something behind, but what exactly? And apparently, I’ve been living in a dream, but it’s not mine?
I feel like there is something I’m not getting.
The Two of Swords signifies a conflict between my heart and mind. At one end, I want to pursue mundane work and the other I want to do spiritual work, but I think that there is something greater here that I’m not getting. I think Hestia is telling me to stop thinking for a second and focus on what I want to do right now. I’m a little confused as to what kind of witch I want to be and how I am going to practice witchcraft every day. I’m working on that (not just with a schedule) now. Also, I think She reminding me to do my magic and not get so distracted by everything. I also think that I’ve been trying to “balance” my life out so much that I waste time. I should just focus on one thing at a time.
Hecate is reminding me to FOCUS on my work whether it’s mundane or spiritual. I’ve gotten this card before so I feel like I’ve missed something that I need to look into again.
Hermes chose the Two of Cups. I love this card. I love the alchemical imagery. I’m a queer person (both sexually and gender) I like the idea of being two genders and neither at the same time.
Anyway, this card reminds me of Hermes’ Caduceus. So, I am looking into that now (as well as Hecate’s three aspects). This card represents a partnership….A magical partnership? Seems very early for that. Perhaps He’s telling me that I should look into myself and become whole within my self before I go looking for a human magic partner.
