When you play the Tarot Game and land on a STAR space, you may be directed to select 5 cards from the full deck. Beginning “once upon a time” tell a short story from the images on the cards. Try to read the story in the order drawn, however as a variation, you may rearrange the cards.
Here is one pass at a possible story in the images shown. What is your story?
Once upon a time their was a passionate leader, however his vision for his constituents had been blurred over the years. He was no longer sure that his personal convictions and beliefs were of any use. Deciding that fresh ideas were needed, he approached his son and gave him the charge of venturing out to engage with the world. In doing so, the young man found that what was truly valued were matters of the heart. He gave to his father the gift of remembering to rule from his heart and to invest in personal relationships.
The challenge in this activity is to garner inspiration from the images before relying on what’s been learned about the cards through book study. The first card drawn becomes part of the Game reading, the main points of the story become part of it as well. In this case, King of Wands is take for the reading, along with possible notes ” to lead others I need fresh purpose, to entrust others, and develop relationships.”
Give it a try with any 5 cards drawn at random – for best results use a deck you seldom look at, so that the images will be fresh. Let me know how it goes!
