A reading on whats to come

Things have been going ok lately, but there is an issue i need an answer to so i asked the cards "What can i expect in the upcoming weeks?" Its a question that has been on mind for quite a while now, so i thought id get a little guidance on the matter. The spread i chose for the reading is the Awen spread from the Druidcraft book and i think it worked rather well.
Cards 1, 4, 7 ~ Guiding ideas, Past
Queen of wands, The Lord, Nine of cups(rx)
With these three cards i think there is a certain amount of control that is apparent. The Queen and Lord side by side in the spread so i think this points to an arrangement of both enthusiasm as well as order. The nine i feel may be preparation of whats to come and need to clear out unwanted baggage. All three figures are seated, so i think grounding myself is the best option, as well as all three holding an object upright and firmly which could emphasise the point of solidity in structure and control. Overall what i feel is a wild time to begin with, but coming into focus later on.
Cards 2, 5, 8~ Emotional influences/factors
3 of swords(rx), The Hanged man, 8 of swords
The three of swords in the Past line, is indicating the sorrow that has been a big part for a long time, but now is passing as i enter into the stages of comfort and understanding in the hanged man. But ending with the eight of swords explains my current spot if things continue on this path. I think as the 3 is in the past, the main thing to focus on right now is to reclaim the peace that was lost, before any more sharp conflicts stir. I am happy to be in this phase, as i feel it is one of required transition.
Cards 3, 6, 9 ~ Effects in the physical world
Princess of cups, Queen of swords, Four of pentacles(rx)
What i personaly feel with these cards is they are showing the people to influence in a manner of speaking. The princess, i good friend who has been with me since almost the start, and the Queen a person who'e opinion matter alot. I think it may be these two will help turn the four rightside up.
When looking at the spread, i can definately see a pattern emerging but will need to examine it further to understand the elements better. I will be doing a follow up reading of this reading soon this week.

Spirit Guide Spread

For this weeks reading i decided to use K.K's spirit guide spread to see if there was a special message for me from my guide. For those who dont know the positions are,
1.)What should i remember that i am forgetting.
2.)What is my spirit guide trying to tell me?
3.)What is the advice my spirit guide is giving me?
4.)What would the outcome be if i followed this path?
I think this is a really interesting spread hat has alot to offer the reader.
1.) 10 of Cups(rx)
I think this card is pointing to my current situation with a friend of mine, and the overall message is that the conflict that is currently between us is uncalled for and totally senseless. We have always spoken of long term commitments leading to a prosperous future but recently have had an arguement that needs to be resolved.
2.) 4 of Cups
New and exciting things are being offered if i only take the time to heed the message and allow my inner self the choice of accepting them and moving forward. Or then again, this card could be speaking again of my conflict and stressing the need to relax and not antagonise it even further.
3.) The World(rx)
This card has come up twice so far this week, three times if you count the once upright and twice reversed. I believe the advice is once again telling me to make the choice of moving forward and not letting doubt and confusion take hold. I should Dance freely so that i can fully embrace the gifts The World upright has to offer.
4.) The Star
Its not often i recieve this card in a reading, but when i do i take it as a very positive message being sent. In its position i feel if i take the advice my guide has given me, there are only bright and positive aspects waiting in the near future. But i need to take the action to make these dreams a reality.
Thanks for taking the time to read this weeks post. Have fun guys.

A view of the situation with the Celtic

Hi all.
The reading i decided to do today covers a difficult situation i am currently going through, so i turned inward, and to the Druidcraft to see what assistance i could recieve. My question was, "how can i get myself out of this situation?"
Significator - The Magician
Cover card== > Justice
Justice is my card that relates to my star sign, Libra. And i can relate very well to qualities represented in this card. A need for balance and understanding. As well as fairness and complacency.
Crossing card== >Six of Cups(rx)
I feel that this card is pointing out my neglect to let go of harmfull, or perhaps now not so important things from the past. Its time to realise that whats done is done and to sit and dwell on such things will only bring pain. Moving on to brighter things is the only way of letting go.
Basis== >Three of Pentacles
The three here i feel provides a strong basis to why things are as they are. One of the things i want most is for my work to be recognized and the effort put in to be appreciated. Perhaps the advice this card is offering would be to realize that having everyones approval is comforting, its not everything. Pride in ones work should for the self firstly, then others.
Recent Past== >Prince of Pentacles
I am really stumped with this card in its position. The only thing i could think of is, that my laid back nature in regards to the situation is diminishing. I realise now that in order to achieve what needs to be done i need to get things moving again.
Possible Outcome== >Cernunnos
With this being the possible outcome, i feel that i should not become to entangled within things that i might later find difficult to escape. Rather explore the idea to its fullest, scrutinizing each aspect of the situation to secure the best possible outcome that would be most beneficial in the long run. The potential for a successfull solution to the problem is there, i think as the texts and image on the card suggest, waking up to find what is real.
Near Future== >Six of Wands(rx)
Not the best thoughts as the near future, but if i were to look at this card in another way, it might represent breaking free of some dominating factor which could be adding to the situation. Realizing that to follow my own actions, rather than relying on others may be what gets me through the time to come.
Self== >Nine of Pentacles(rx)
I think this card is speaking of a lack of trying to put it simply. I need to accept that the way things are progressing, may be enforced by my failure to counter the negative influences surrounding it. What im been given is not enough and for some reason i feel i need more though mabye the clue to this card is to appreciate what i have rather than focus of what i have'nt.
Environment== >Prince of Cups
The environment im in is actually a very loving and caring one, although at times it may not seem so. Although at times it may be contributing to the act of not doing much at all, rather than making things happen. This is a place of creative inspiration and positive encouragement, but as the saying goes, actions speak louder than words.
Hope and Fears== >
I believe what this card is saying is very true. My biggest fear at the moment is not making my ambitions for a solid, centered lifestyle a reality. Or as another viewpoint, the projects im currently undertaking will not come to fruition. Confidence and a balanced structure or whats needed to bring security into play.
Outcome== >Five of Swords
Once again, not the best card for its position, but i believe it can be avoided if the right measures are taken. The reason for the Five coming up, could be from doing nothing from the state of Cernunnos. But what i feel this card is also pointing to is, to not attack the situation unprepared. Thinking calmly and using my knowledge to the best of my ability, could help in this time of struggle.
Thanks for bearing with me through this long reading. I feel i have gotten the basic idea of hat is needed but am still unclear on one or two cards so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
