Tarot Forecast for the Week of January 29, 2018

Page of Coins, reversed; The Magician

This week's guidance comes from the Page of Coins, reversed.  It indicates that there is a block that's holding you back from going after something that you really want. Whatever this thing is, it has the potential to bring you a lot of happiness, so I encourage you to ask yourself where you've been holding yourself back. Trust what comes up for you.

Perhaps this block stems from feelings unworthiness. To get a better idea, I pulled the bottom card, which is often referred to as the foundation card. It helps us get a better idea of what the underlying energy of the situation is.

The foundation card turned out to be the Magician. The Magician is such a powerful force in the Major Arcana, and it felt like we're afraid of our own power. We're afraid of what happens if succeed.

There's a wonderful quote from Marianne Williamson that speaks volumes about this that I'd like to share with you:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
— Marianne Williamson; A Return to Love

This week's cards encourage you to stop being so afraid. Stop holding yourself back. You are meant to shine, and it's time to let yourself do so.

Nine of Cups, Reversed

Normally, the Nine of Cups is a card of happiness, joy and peace. However, this week it has turned up in the reversed position. I read reversals a little differently than some and, to me, this reversal is about an inward expression of energy.

What this means is that this card feels like its message is about turning inward and discovering the things within us that bring us happiness, joy and peace. When we no longer depend on our outer circumstances to make us happy, we become like a brick in a raging river. The water may be rushing one way or the other, but we remain unchanged and don't allow it to drag us along with it.

Your circumstances are constantly changing, but they can't affect you if you have an inner source of joy. The other great thing about this shift is that the more you start to focus on that peace within yourself, the more it will begin to manifest in your life - "As above, so below. As within, so without."

Discover what it is within you that lights you up and you'll be able to see a clear path even in the darkest of times.

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
— Albus Dumbledore

Tarot Forecast for the Week of January 15, 2018

This week we have the energy of the Two of Swords coming into our lives.

If you look at the imagery of this particular card, you'll see two swords crossed together underneath a sun that appears to be eclipsed. However, it feels like it's still creating light amidst the darkness.

Swords are a suit that corresponds with our mental processes and communication. Coupled with the fact that this is a number two, it felt like the message coming through is in regards to the decisions we have to make this week. Yes, we make decisions every single day, but with the sun being eclipsed, it feels like we don't have everything we need in order to make a decision that feels aligned with our higher good. There's something we might not yet have that would help us make the best choice.

Therefore, this card would suggest that you not be afraid in asking for what you need prior to making a decision. Don't be afraid to hold off on any decisions until you have what you need from someone or something. When you're advocating for yourself, you're able to get a big picture view rather than feeling like you're stumbling in the dark.

This week's message, plain and simple: Don't be afraid to ask.

Tarot Forecast for the Week of January 8, 2018

As I was shuffling the cards this week, the image of a rose came into my mind.  I've had a couple rose bushes for a few years, and I know the amount of work they require. You can't just plop a rosebush down and expect it to grow without any care. They need plenty of sunshine, water, pruning, fertilizer, and other beneficial things like egg shells and coffee grounds.

As this image of the rose faded from my mind, the Ten of Pentacles came leaping out of the deck. To me, this is a card of abundance, prosperity, and essentially represents the life of your dreams.

While looking at the card I began to think about how those dreams don't just appear out of thin air. They take work, just like a rosebush. You can't just set your intention and expect everything to happen without any work on your part.

Think of your intentions as a tiny seed you plant in the ground. In order to help that seed grow into its full potential, you have to nurture it. You help it blossom by pruning old habits and beliefs that no longer serve you, and taking steps towards it every single day. The more love and attention you give it, the stronger it will grow. But, like a tiny seedling, if you neglect it for too long, it will just wither and die.

This week, you're being asked to plan out how you can give those intentions the love and care they need in order to thrive. Maybe it's something as simple as placing that phone call you've been putting off or starting to build your website. Whatever it is, do it! Take that step because both you and your dreams deserve it.
