What can I expect from today?
What a pleasant spread! Without even thinking about the message, I can already tell today will be wonderful.
In a three card spread, it is important to look at what stands out. There is one Minor Arcana followed by two Major Arcana. My instinct tells me to concentrate on the Major Arcana. I also examine the elemental affiliations of the cards. The Nine of Pentacles and The Hierophant are influenced by the element, Earth, while The Star is influenced by Air. Thus, I will focus my attention on The Star.
The Star is a very positive card. In fact, I can think of no negatives when it comes to this card. This card represents joy, wonder, hope, and healing. The image depicts a girl receiving the blessed water of the universe that emerges from a lotus flower. In return, she has offered a handful of stars. For this spread, the message of giving and receiving makes the most sense.
This card stands for tradition and guidance. The Hierophant is offering the wisdom of his ancestors to ensure stability. The card is an Earth element because tradition and wisdom is practical and grounds us. Some would even say that the wisdom of The Hierophant is of a divine source. In the context of the reading he is the giver.
The Nine of Pentacles
The message of this card is “Earth will provide.” Naturally, it is an Earth element. The garden is in full bloom and the young woman enjoys its fruit. She is the receiver.
Today is a blessed day. In giving to the world you will receive its blessings. Offer your wisdom and guidance and the world will provide. However, concentrate on your offering and not your reward.
