Hmm...this IS interesting...as i was reading your post thoughts were forming in my mind and i was about to post my comments on what you wrote, until i scrolled down and saw the cards you posted, saying the same things ! For example i wanted to say i really believe you're on the right track, pursuing what you really like to do and keep spirituality as a refreshing/rewarding hobby as making a living out of it could derive it of it's true purpose of serving fellow human beings and advance your Spirit on it's path.
Then i see the first card. On the tree's roots there are two hearts, your love of hospitality industry and Spirituality. The Hidden Path is the marriage of spirit and matter, exactly what you decided to do. So Spirit protected you from walking the wrong path and not only that but gained much wisdom the past year. You wouldn't have this if you weren't unemployed.
On the right i see the Eye of Horus, a powerful symbol of protection and clear vision. On the left is the Sun, symbol of Life and Vitality. The two trees converge to form the 3rd eye like in the Vesica Piscis, the common ground between 2 different circles, Buddha's Middle Road. And in there the Ankh, the "breath of Life" for Ancient Egyptians as their Gods used it to channel life into newborn Pharaohs.
I also spot some Ankhs in the blue of the second card which i think speaks by itself.
I see some letters on the bottom of the last card, H, S, K, I and on the right an hourglass half-empty that signifies the time has come or could it be the symbol of infinity...interesting deck, can i ask it's name ? Thank you
