Assistance interpreting a tarot spread
« on: April 26, 2013, 09:14:49 pm »
I'm still very new to this, but I have always been interested in Tarot and felt a draw to it. After refreshing myself with my cards (Rider-Waite deck) I did a spread about my mom and I understand the first part but not the last.

Backstory: My mom is 55 and has been in a nursing home for 3+ years due to a lot of health issues including but not limited to Scoliosis, Osteoporosis, RA, COPD. She had heart surgery in September and has had a total of 8 back surgeries.  So her health is always a large concern for me. Seeing how I feel strongly about it and it's close to me, I used her health as the base for my question.

The spread: I did a Celtic cross with the previously stated deck. I will just reference 1,2,3 and that is matching the spread (standard) The results were as follows :

1: Judgement, reversed
2: 7 of Wands
3: 9 of Pentacles
4: 11 of Pentacles, reversed
5: Queen of Pentacles
6: 5 of Swords
7: The Lovers
8: The Hierophant
9: 4 of Wands
10: Ace of Wands

My interpretation: based on judgement reversed and being in the first place, I kind of took this as her seeking a higher power or looking for answers since it was reversed. This makes sense to me because my mother is very very religious (Christian). I kind of went from that, and for me it made sense up until 7-10.

Any interpretations would be nice. I know the outcome isn't going to be "OMG she's cured" because it is not an option so if the results aren't happy-happy joy-joy, that's fine. I'm just looking to see if 1) my interp. was right at all 2) If so, what the heck are the last cards about, and 3) if I'm completely off base, what other interps could be.

Thanks in advance!
