READING GLENORMAND TAROT
The Garden portrays creation, balance, justice, equilibrium, a higher consciousness, wealth, good fortune. It works like a symphony with other inner activities, such as independent judgement, objectivity, clarity, and removal of layers of prior conditioning. Harmony slowly enters our perceptions, and with this awareness, you feel the tension of disharmony dissolve, and the only thing left is the resonance of serenity. Tranquillity is necessary for our inner development, and that is the message of the card of Garden. The Garden reveals the gift of Earth, and its message is to distribute equally, shearing, communicating our good intentions. On the second level, the Eight of Spades gives an option to create Heaven or Hell here on Earth. We've made hell from Eden with rivalry over resources due to greed, lust, and the ego. These three things are in such a blinding state that they exist in every religious thought, organisation, belief system. What drives these rivalries? Social, political, economic, and other factors may play their parts. Still, it can also stamp from genetic conditions, such as hoarding disorder, which blinds you to see the long-term detriment. The card points out the negative consequences attached to greed, rivalry, hostile adversary. The ego drives rivalry to win at any cost, to appear to be the only ones, the knower of the truth. The Ten of Diamonds summons Earth's gift, which can turn into contentions, desire, lust, hate, arrogance, mental blindness, hostile adversary.
