Pyramid Spread & Saturn Retrograde

There are many spreads that are available out there, easily accessible thanks to the Internet. 

One of my favourites is the pyramid spread, wider at the bottom then up to the point of what to do next.

It can be reversed from the single point again to be as large going forwards as you need or want it to be. I often use this pyramid spread when I want insight on where I am, what to overcome & what the outcome is likely to consist of.

The question for this week is; What do I need to be aware of during this Saturn Retrograde? FYI, Saturn doesn’t go direct again until August (yes, that long) so these months may be zooming passed in reality, but it’s not going to feel like time is moving or things are progressing at all. Days may feel longer than they actually are.

The Spread: 

Bottom, Row 1: Where I am now.

Middle,  Row 2: What to do between now & August?

Top, Row 3: What’s the next step?

The Cards & Interpretation: 

Row 1: Major 18, The Moon on Water; Two of Arrows & Major 5, The Ancestor

This row shows me that the basis of where I am isn’t set in stone. It’s rather fluid, a little like a watery path. Things aren’t in balance, that I know. They haven’t been for a little while & with this Saturn retrograde, they’re not likely to be for a while to come! The Ancestor says that there’s a way through this, but the path isn’t one I’ve walked upon, yet. The choice is there if I want to walk down that avenue.

Row 2: King of Bows & Major 12, The Mirror

Between now & August, the cards say “Go my own way” & do what it is I need to do that is true to me. That’s hard, standing up by yourself & walking your own path, ignoring the pressures of others. The cards say to act as I want to be remembered or acknowledged for. So, how do you (or I)  want to act? How do you want to conduct yourself as you walk your own path?

Row 3: Seven of Arrows 

There are two ways to take this card for the next step; Either I can let the insecurities within overtake me, or I can listen to the voices of others & cause even more monkey to mess up my mind than my mind monkeys can come up with. It seems all rather complicated and I’m not sure what else this could be hinting at. Reading the description of the card from the app (as the book is in another room & I’m not moving to go get it):

“We may not be able to change the past, but we can learn to evolve strategies from the lessons of life & apply them to future scenarios. This process may also involve forgiveness for past failures, either of other individuals, belief systems or, more importantly, oneself.”

Conclusion: 

The cards of the middle row & top row of this pyramid spread are quite interesting. Go my path, do what I need to do & be true to myself, forgive myself (?) for the decisions I didn’t take, or those that I did take. Don’t let the mind monkeys out to play!

Now that, I can take forward! What is it you see in these cards? What do your cards say? I’d love to see or hear about the cards you’ve drawn using this spread.  I’ve used The Wildwood but you can use whatever deck you wish to! Feel free to let me know via comments!!
