Personal Reading I decided to give this tarot spread a try to help give an example for those wishing to try it for themselves. The Ace of Swords was the first card drawn revealing that I should embrace my higher mind filled with knowledge that allows me to make fair judgements and decisions.
The World reversed was my second card drawn showing that I feel stuck for the moment and that to make myself special I need to complete a task outside of the norm. The third card drawn was The Ten of Swords reversed showing that I need comfort of the heart. I carry scars from the past being bullied has left me guarded toward those I don’t know. What makes me happy is being signs of encouragement from friends and loved ones, which is the meaning behind The Knight of Swords.
The Page of Swords shows my free spirit and how I see the world outside the box instead of how the rest of the world see things. The last card drawn, The Hierophant, revealing what I love about myself, which is my knowledge, my thirst to discover what I have yet to discover. It’s also tied to my religion and how I wish to follow my own path being free-formed instead of joining one already created.
Many consider Valentine’s Day to signify a day to be with your significant other but there are numerous ways to pass the day. Many spend it with friends and family, while others use it as a personal day to recharge their batteries. The day is a way to love yourself and others and this spread will highlight what is best about yourself and what others truly love about you.
