    Ok Chris, I can honor your reading too but I have a somewhat different take on these cards (bearing in mind that I did not draw them and in fact never do).

    The Nine of Swords shows an awakening, a realization of regret that something has been wrong in the subject’s life. The reversed Sun corroborates this fact, that something is currently wrong with this one’s view of the world and/or something is confusing or missing with this life, it seems overpowering but is subject to change. The Page of Wands in fact represents the subject himself, beginning a journey of self-discovery with some optimism towards his ultimate goal. The final card, the Ace of Pentacles is appropriate to this reading, because the subject is assured of either finding or already being on the right path towards his desired discovery while receiving a divine blessing from above and with the much sought for garden gate already in sight as he moves towards a higher future.

    I may be a little rude but at least I’m willing to pay for that indulgence.

    • Thanks Lloyd! Do you not read cards? You have an interesting approach to them.

    I managed to read them in this case, Chris, but chiefly this reading is based upon what explanations Google came up with for each given card. But then I didn’t always agree with what I read on Google so there is a minor personal aspect involved. I never handle such cards because I have a healthy respect for any such ventures. Even prior to looking up the various meanings on this particular reading I did see something progressing from the realization of being incomplete (9) towards the ultimate optimistic journey (Ace!) but that much should be obvious even as a simple series of picture stories. Good dealing Chris!

    • Ah, the mighty Google. Good form! I never would have thought of using Google to help with a reading. I guess this spread does read easily. I’m always getting caught up in the meanings as well as the suits of the cards and such without allowing some room for free form. Well at least not always.
