I don’t normally do Tarot readings for others, but sometimes, I get the impression that someone needs help with a Spiritual Awakening. So, I did one. I don’t want to intrude on this person’s privacy, so I will just refer to him as “Ted”
The spread is Hagall. Cards are Rider Waite
Ted. You need to listen ok? Seriously listen. The stuff you are experiencing is a Spiritual Awakening. You have not had a mental breakdown.Stop freaking out ok?
6 of Pents
This card usually indicates Financial flow, Clarity, Assistance, giving back or generocity.
But, in this instance, I think it is more likely referring to getting assistance for understanding his path. I think this is about Ted getting advice because he is attempting to go it alone and not get himself attention. He needs to be open with at least another person. Who is not afraid of stuff like Spiritual Awakenings, and will not tell Ted he is nuttier than a bedbug. Ted, you can be a bit nutty, but you are NOT crazy.
Something you (Ted) did:
6 of Cups: Friendliness, Innocence, Childhood,
This is a card, in this particular placement, seems to be about looking back at childhood or the past and wishing you had retained some aspect of your younger you. This might mean you have changed in order to be sucessful in your life. Since, you are a private person, this might also mean you keep a tight wrap on the inner you, and, as a result, feel like you have 2 lives, or two faces. Your spirit is no longer happy with this arrangement. This stuff needs to change Ted. Soon.
Beliefs, Impressions, Expectations:
Boy Ted!, you really ask a lot of yourself. You try to have complete stability and rationality for all that you do. You have a lot of people looking up to you and relying on you, and this makes you dig deeper to succeed, but this also means you have no one to comfort you when you are weak or worried, because you must appear strong for all these people. How tiring and hard on a heart that must be. You might also be considering the role of Fatherhood and what that role means to you. You might even have pangs to become a father yourself and wonder if you are up to the task. In case you are wondering, yes you are. A card later on shows that you are an amazing person inside and really, really loving. You might not know it, but you are definately Papa material.
Most Likely Outcome:
Death: Don’t freak TED! That is a good thing in this instance. It means regeneration, transformation, and closure.
This is a Spiritual Awakening after all, this is just confirmation really. It is showing that if you keep going you are going to be a new person after you are done. A stronger, happier you. You will have to deal with stuff you have not dealt with though. Most especially things dealing with closure on things you refuse to talk about, cannot face, or hide in the back of the closet. Time to clean house Dude!
You are feeling a bit stuck, and uncertain about what changes to make and what to do with the you that is roaring inside you to be let go. Yeah, he is a special part of you too, that man. He is not someone to be shut away while you make a living Ted! Your inner silly person needs to be allowed to be affectionate in public, weird and wonderful and yes, even a bit dumb. You really hate looking dumb Ted, but that is not such a bad thing sometimes. The Universe doesn’t just hand out Spiritual Awakenings on a whim Ted, it comes when you are ready. And Dude, you are Totally ready. You got this.
Let go, and trust the universe.
Spritual History of the Situation:
4 of Pents:
Stable, Cautious, Protecting resources, boundaries, Saving.
Ok, Ted. This is gonna hurt, but I am not here to sugarcoat you. You need to freaking stop working all the DAMNED time. You are killing yourself to provide stability that you ALREADY have. Yes, you! You are enough, you are ok. You hold on so tightly because you don’t want to let anyone down. The problem is, it is preventing you moving forward on some personal growth. You need to get in touch with you. He has some things to tell you, so listen DAMN it! Take a chance. You have a firm foundation. You will not fail anyone. Least of all yourself. You do not know how to fail. So, let yourself be sentimental and goofy for a while. It is needed.
Spiritual Tasks and Challenges:
Knight of Wands.
This is who you are right now Ted, it is a challenge because it needs to change slightly from this core you.
He is engergetic, Charismatic, confident. He needs lots of Stimulation and will often value adventure over his own common sense, though he really needs to cut that out as he gets older. His inner need is self-growth and new challenges.
He is competitive, reckless and tempermental. He has a short attention span and doesn’t stay in one place too long. Risk-taker, experimental, doesn’t consider his own mortality and gets hurt when he pushes the envelope.
Metemorphasis of the Spiritual situation:
This is who the inner you wants to become more. This is who you are in your soul.
Optimism, peace. Renewel.
(Follow-up card to describe you was King of Wands) This is who your spirit aspires to become:

He likes excitement, competition and challenges, he has a lust for life! He likes to be surrounded by a diverse group of people. He is not rigid in his thinking and is receptive to different points of view when considering a situation. He knows himself well and is a very authentic person. He expresses his true nature in all that he does. He acts and speaks with integrity. He is a passionate lover and does best when he expresses his feelings instead of letting them smoulder within.
He sometimes gets carried away by his enthusiasm and can be an impulsive gambler, but even when he experiences losses, he picks himself up and carries on with optimism.
