A couple of times a year, we get a tarot card reading from a lady named Yvette, known as Lady Astra. Meetings with her are like a lucid dream. She does a few card layouts pertaining to the past, present and future. Sometimes a group of cards will send her off on a tangent, and "they" will tell her she's revealing too much. It's never a scary experience, but at times, the information given is enough to make you really reflect or act. Like another perspective that helps make things clear.
( One of the card layouts. Lady Astra travels around different times of year, to do readings at different events, we have been lucky enough to get to know her on a more personal level. She came over to our house for this one)
Last summer's card reading was quite informative. Out of our two seperate readings, astonishingly they were almost identical. One particular card came up in multiple layouts for the both of us, The Four of Swords. The picture is of a resting person, seemingly vulnerable, and looks dead. Three swords hanging in the tree above, pointed down, ready to attack. The resting person stays relaxed, knowing the sword by their side remains hidden from their enemies.
( The worn down cards tell of many fortunes read. Here is the Four of Swords card from Lady Astra's deck)
Meaning, don't reveal all of your swords, or in other words, never reveal all that you know. The cards couldn't have been more accurate, especially during that time. It's not about deceit, but about staying quiet, and moving foreward, letting your work, talent and actions speak for itself.
