New to tarot.... need help with interpretation...

  • Hi, I am new to tarot reading. I just started tarot reading 3 days ago. I did a few readings for mysel. I did my first reading for my dad and it is all right. However, my second reading for my dad is not so accurate.

    I am using the rider-waite deck.

    Okay, here is my dad's question (The second reading):

    How will my luck be?

    Here is what I drew from the card:

    Significator: I choose the fool, as I do not know if my dad's luck will be good or bad. I think of my dad as being on a quest to search for his luck, and therefore I choose the fool.

    First Card(Past Experience):

    Fifth of Pentacles

    Second Card(opportunity for growth): Forth of Pentacles

    Third Card (Future):Wheel of fortune Card

    Fourth Card (General Comment): Eight of Wand

    My interpretation:

    Past Experience: The card shows two people wandering about in poverty. I interpret it as my dad's past luck is not very good.

    Opportunity for growth: The person is holding tightly to four pentacles. It seems that he is concerned with material wealth. I interpret this as my dad needs to guard his material possession with more care, instead of wasting them away in gambling, if he wants to gain wealth.

    Future: Wheel of forture card.

    I interpret it as luck is not certain. There can be ups and downs in luck. There is no guarantee as to whether the future luck is good or bad.

    General comment(Eight of Wand):

    This shows eight wands flying straight to the sky.

    I am not sure how to interpret this card.

    Conclusion: My dad said my reading is not accurate. I will like to ask you how you will read the cards if you were me. Thanks for your help.

  • Significator :The fool card is more about non conformity, following your own drummer so to speak than anything "foolish" society or family friends may look at you askance for being foolish but there is a innocence like that of a child, but not necessarily naive. There can be "luck" involved but I see it more as a perspective involving trust.

    Past:5 of Disks is sometimes seen as the Worry card. Feelings of being defeated,disillusioned, a time of arranging your life so that your inner and outer selves are in tune. Finding appreciation sometimes lacking for the Whole Self. Important to walk in integrity.

    Opportunity:4 of Disks, Power. Having acquired material wealth or foundation this is a good opportunity to look at how we can affect our world ie: family, society, humanity by our choices. Avarice? Generosity?

    Future: Wheel of Fortune. Life is constantly changing, revolving moving. As we reach the top it looks grand not so grand coming back down. Everything is cyclic. Remain centered as life has it's ups and downs. Try being more of a witness to it's ever changing cycle vs getting caught up in it.If we remain more in our center we remain present and grounded in our being whether we experience good or not so good.

    Eight of wands is Swiftness or "Lightning path" Rapid movement. Energy taking off. Burning out which is outmoded.Transformative. Ideas that eluded you in the past may become clear.

    I am not a professional reader but I do do my own and friends,family. I use the Tarot of the Spirit a very "positive" deck. Enjoy learning!
