Mercury Trine Neptune 4-Card Tarot Reading
Shuffle the cards and ask the following question:
How can I use these creative energies to my advantage?
Lay out the cards in the following 4-card spread:
- Card 1: My creative mission at this time
- Card 2: How I can best put it into practice
- Card 3: What obstacles stand in my way
- Card 4: The outcome of my creative mission
Below is an example reading so you can see how this Tarot reading works. Here are the cards I pulled for this reading:
1. The World
The World represents my creative mission at this time. This tells me that I am embarking on – or would like to embark on – something that will make me feel fulfilled, whole and complete. It could be something involving travel; it could be something that connects me to many people across the globe (this could even indicate a cause that many people around the world feel passionate about); it could be a business or hobby that I would like to expand. Whatever it is, it will make me feel complete as a human being.
2. 8 of Pentacles
The 8 of Pentacles is a card of study, focus and dedication. For how I can best put it into practice, this clearly tells me that I need to work hard for whatever it is I want to succeed at. This could mean long hours spent in research, pouring over books and articles. It isn’t something that will fall into my lap, but it is something that will come to me over time, if I am prepared to put in the hard work. With Mercury trine Neptune, it also indicates that communicating with others may be an essential part of my success, so this could indicate joining a group or forum with others that have the same interests as me, or finding a mentor to help me along the way.
3. 7 of Cups
As an obstacle card, the 7 of Cups can be a card of procrastination and too much daydreaming. This may indicate a warning that I might spend too much time dreaming of what could be, rather than putting in the effort to actually make it happen. This is where I need to keep remembering the advice of the 8 of Pentacles, a strong earthy card that directly counters the watery daydreamy appeal of the 7 of Cups – to focus on realistic and practical methods, rather than spending too much time in my head.
As the outcome card, Justice is a very much an ‘as you sow, you shall reap’ card. It clearly tells me that my success depends entirely on me; that should I follow the advice of the 8 of Pentacles, success will be mine and my creative endeavours shall come to fruition. But if I fall into the trap of the 7 of Cups and allow my imagination and procrastination to get the better of me, I will find very little has been achieved in the way I would want.
