Vincent Pitisci’s Celtic Cross + Keywords. ➡ Part 1/2
In continuation of the last post we will look at the staff cards of the Celtic Cross. If you have downloaded the free printout you will notice the cards are at a slant. Since I am right-handed I will probably slant them the other way (Robin Wood cards). In the image you can see that I followed Vincent’s method with the Golden Dawn cards.
➡ In the previous post I forgot to mention the keywords for the suits according to Vincent. Also, I wrote only one keyword (according to the downloadable printouts) for the Minors in the last post. If you go to his YouTube video channel and locate Tarot card meanings Part 1 The Minor Arcana you can see many keywords which branch out from the main ones.
- Swords: thought
- Pentacles: the physical
- Wands: the spirit (passion)
- Cups: emotion
Part of my stocking stuffer this Christmas is the ‘Genius of the Tarot: A Guide to Divination with the Tarot’, 2013 and ‘The Essential Tarot: Unlocking the Mystery’, 2015 books. Too bad they won’t arrive until the first week of January but it is a hectic time of the year for parcel deliveries. (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform)
Card #7 is the client’s attitude towards the question. This position is all about how a person really sees their question. Here we have a 6 again which we know is perseverance. The cups stand for emotions. Maybe the client is stuck in the past with regards to the *question. There could be some emotional history to overcome in the RW 6 of Cups.
*Card #1 is the question about the publication of a book. 9 of Cups- emotional attainment. The RW deck illustrates the concept of wishes fulfilled.
The last three cards of the staff are the Major Arcana.
Card #8 represents timing. The GD Star card’s keyword is direction. Is it a good time to move forward? (remember the opportunity in the 2 of Cups- position 6) This could be a sign that choices need to be made. More clarity is needed for the direction of this goal. Are the planetary transits in the client’s favour?
Card #9 covers the long-range goal or total picture. The GD Tower card’s keyword is disruption. The road to success is not without challenges. Wishes to publish the book could be dashed to the ground. The client should prepare for a rude awakening. Changes can occur midstream. Not so favourable. Is he doing this to himself?
Card #10 is the prediction. The GD Devil card’s keyword is False Truths. The client has a fear of success. This will hinder him unless he overcomes it. He needs to get out of his own way. It could be that deep down inside he is kidding himself about ever wanting to publish the book.
In summary, I do not see the success of the book being published until the person takes a long hard look at what he really wants and why. My best advice for him is to look at his fears. His true intention needs to be in line with his highest good.
The challenge is in the 6 of Swords – intellectual perseverance.
