Edgar Allan Poe's "Assignation"
Pictured on this tarot: five people smoking in intimate and everyday situations
INTERPRETATION: Sometimes also who you know can hinder you as others will have a tendency to pre-judge you based on external factors, what you wear, how you carry yourself and with whom you associate. Normally these judgements will be more negative than positive.
All of the fives in each of the suits represent a place of lack in your life at present and these are somewhat more difficult to work through. These images throw up the reasons why something you want that you cannot have just now.
They depict circumstances beyond your control and this is what makes them so difficult as they often feel unfair because you do not have the power to change them now. Depending on which five you find, it will at least help you understand why things are not happening the way you would like them to, in these basic ways:
- In 5 of earth the “Depletion” tarot represents that the material world is in opposition to your desires.
- In 5 of fire the “Associations and Assignations” tarot represents that passions and arguments are rife, making it impossible to act in the way you desire
- In 5 of water the “Repentance” tarot represents that you will be experiencing emotional warfare, blackmail or undo guilt making from something someone knows about you and is manipulating you emotionally in some way that makes you feel that you can never get or deserve what you desire
- In 5 of air the “Metamorphosis” tarot represents the time between one time period in your life and another, it’s a time in your life will be confusing and information is not clear enough for you to even know what you ought to desire
It is time to recognise and understand your stumbling blocks, which may be very difficult because you may feel powerless to act within the situation you find yourself in at present. Remember, this too will pass, in the future---it will only feels like it’s lasting forever.
Be careful of folks you may meet now who seems to be someone who will help you, do not confide in this individual, take their advice or allow them to get involved as they are not going to help you at the end of the day. So if you do it anyway when you meet this individual be aware that in addition to feeling unhappy about your situation you will likely become even more distressed when this person breaks a confidence or turns into a trouble-maker for you.
When you choose this tarot it is time to look at your habits and discern which ones are necessary and which are not and which are actually harmful for you. It would be a great time to address bad habits and rectify your life by ridding yourself of their control over your behaviour.
Put down your weapons, for nothing can be accomplished at this time through struggle or argument. You will feel like confronting all manner of things but you will have to make yourself temper this confrontation with patience or you can end up getting very angry, argumentative and violent. It is time to become a part of the flow of movement, do not try to swim against the tide.
Examine carefully those with whom you associate, there is a change of social climate afoot. Decide if your social circle is helping or hindering you and act accordingly to shape your circle with more supportive and positive friendships.
Certainly link and make suggestions to anyone you think would like to see these. Just please do not claim the authorship as your own.
