This morning as I finished shuffling, a card turned over face up on top of the deck as though I had just performed a magic trick. It was The Wisest (Hierophant). I then proceeded to cut the deck and pull my daily two cards, the Ten of Wands and King of Chalices. So today I have a Major, a Minor and a Court card.
I read these cards purely intuitively today, paying no mind to the traditional meanings of the cards, because a personal meaning came to me so instantly and clearly. What jumped out at me was the matching rings in the Ten of Wands and King of Chalices. The fey carries her ring on a necklace and the King has his like a crown or halo on his head. These immediately reminded me of the spyglass from the movie The Spiderwick Chronicles. (My son has watched that movie about 87 times during the past week.) In the movie, there is a ring which allows one to see creatures such as goblins, which are otherwise invisible to the human eye. Because I drew two cards featuring similar rings, it has prompted me to think there is something I am not seeing, but need to. (Also, when I first saw the King of Chalice, the first word that popped into my head was "Seer") Adding The Wisest to the group, and I see his third eye visible, but closed, indicating further something that I am not seeing.
I think I know what this is regarding, and it is something I need to look within for answers to. It is indeed something I have, until now, opted to look at through rose-colored glasses. But now I see that this isn't the best approach to this particular issue, and I need to open my eyes to the truth of the situation. The Ten of Wands confirms that there is a heaviness that needs to be dealt with rather than ignored. The Wisest popping up seemed to emphasize the importance of this, and says to me that this subject is something I would be wise to give some serious thought to.
