A woman thought she was going to have a baby. She and her partner decided to consult The Equinox Celebration Tarot as to whether they should keep the child if the woman was pregnant.
- She Brings the Gift of Music in the question position indicates that this is a question concerning possession, or having abundance, which a pregnancy surely is. It shouldn’t be forgotten how this Celebrant can also denote having too much!
- Power of the Ki is in the 2nd position, the position that shows the circumstances surrounding the question, and what aids and obstructs the question. On the plus side Power of the Ki can denote the solidifying effect of a pregnancy on the couple’s relationship. On the minus side, a pregnancy could conflict with their priorities, as Power of the Ki often refers to what is a correct approach or stance.
She Brings the Gift of Music and Power of the Ki indicate the situation’s present state; a natural endowment as represented by She Brings the Gift of Music must be able to draw on its base of support – which is represented by Power of the Ki, (Ki being the source of vital energy). She Brings the Gift of Music faces away from Power of the Ki.
One interpretation of the meaning of these two Celebrants is: As She Brings the Gift of Music signifies pregnancy, her facing away implies that the condition is a move away from or at variance with their base of support (Power of the Ki).
It should be noted that both of these Celebrants will always face the same direction relative to each other; the Apex Celebrant will give variations in their relationship.
- In the Key, or Apex position of the Triangle, In Defiance of Definition suggests this is not a likely time to be concerned with the issue of pregnancy. A pregnancy may be out of sync with matters currently existing, which is illustrated by the two lower Celebrants. It appeared to the reader of this Triangle that this may not be the best time for this couple to have a child; In Defiance of Definition implies that the question itself was not timely.
The body positions of these Celebrants have the Lower stomach for the question Celebrant (which is appropriate for a pregnancy), and the other two Celebrants were the Lower Left Leg for Power of the Ki, and the Upper Left Leg for In Defiance of Definition. The left side body positions usually refer to situations that do not change dramatically, and they preserve the state of affairs.
The woman took a pregnancy test which showed she was not pregnant. This is consistent with In Defiance of Definition’s meaning as the Apex Celebrant. While it does not completely deny the possibility of an act, it will indicate that the timing or relevance of a desire is not feasible at the present. The delineation for this Celebrant contains the phrase, “not now, and relax”. However this does not forbid their having a child at another time. In this reading, the Triangle not only responded to whether the woman was pregnant, it also showed what the circumstances were surrounding the couple, and what was important for them at the time.
