Thank you, Vulcan, for submitting this week’s question! Vulcan asks:
Have recently relocated in hopes of easing some of my chronic health problems. Will I be approved for partial disability benefits and will I be successful in finding a doable part time job in the near future? Any advice in that direction would be helpful.
To address your question I chose a simplified version of the Tree of Life Spread:
3. Crown: 5 of Swords
1. Center: IV The Emperor
2. Root: X The Wheel of Fortune
1. Center, Focus, Present moment. IV The Emperor is an indicator that the decision has already been made to approve you for partial disability, and news is on its way. This position forms a bridge between the Upper and Lower Realms. Your decision to relocate demonstrates your claim of authority over the Holy Domain of your mind, body, and spirit. No one else can rule you. You may want to consider starting your own business or independent part time work where you can be the primary decision maker. This card signifies that you control your life, rather than letting your life control you. It is your strength and self-rulership that serve you best at this time.
2. Root, Foundation, Past. 5 of Swords. One figure stands leering and holding three swords, while two figures bow their heads in defeat, their swords cast to the ground. 5’s represent the chaotic state of creation, and also a facet of your public face (as in, V The Hierophant). You’ve had to fight tooth and nail to reach where you are, and you have been on both sides of this struggle enough to know that there is no winner here. You’ve left behind toxic relationships in your search for a more positive environment for your health. Use your present attunement to the Divine Father energy of the Emperor to fully resolve this energy.
3. Crown, Cosmic Connection, Future Potential. X The Wheel of Fortune contains the mystery of existence and the principle of the mantra, “Nam Myoho Renge Kyo,” which reveals the Divine Nature in all beings through the unfoldment of the Law of Cause and Effect. You are reaching the nature of this mystery and have the opportunity to reach fuller Understanding of the ultimate continuity of the Universe. This card indicates that you have resolved the past struggles of the 5 of Swords and that you are ready to turn over a new leaf. Good things are on their way to you, including that sustainable part time work.
