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.
