This card represents being comfortably enmeshed in the tasks of ordinary living. So maybe this is the weekend to clean your house, and do some laundry? Or maybe I am projecting that on to you because I’ve let that go a little too long in my own life. Either way it’s a time of being a hard-working, kind, and gentle human being, or being inspired by such a person. After all those are some very worthy, and rather unappreciated traits in the world today.
Well I have to say that I am very happy to not see a sword card today. No card is entirely “good” and no card is entirely “bad,” but just looking at these cards is a visual relief after the last two days. Oh, and what is up with pulling two cards and not one? Well something told me to pull both of these. The Nine of Cups is a time of satisfaction and happiness for all of the effort you have been putting forth. The Eight of Pentacles is all about you working hard to learn a new skill and capitalizing on a new-found or known talent you have. What you are doing is going to pay off if you just keep at it. And it isn’t necessarily your day job, although it could be a new opportunity there. No, it is suddenly realizing that this new thing, this interest, this thing you are learning, might just be a very big new direction for you. It’s vague and it seems impractical even; maybe that hobby of yours could turn into something more than just a hobby? Don’t think too far ahead. One step at a time. Keep at it and see where it goes.
It’s a wands kind of week so far. It’s hard to look look at this card and think you are going to have a good day. It all depends on what your definition of a good day is. Everything you need to battle is laid out before you. There is nothing hidden from you; nothing unexpected that is going to pop up today. That can be a very good thing. There might be a little competition today, but hold fast. You know you’ve got this. Just keep fighting the good fight. Today I’m meeting up with the girls after work for a little happy hour. Seems like the perfect end to a day filled with hard work and intense concentration. Maybe you should plan a little treat for yourself at the end of the day too? It doesn’t have to be social. It could be a relaxing bath, a good book, and some quiet time for yourself.
Feeling a little overwhelmed today? Feeling like your goals are unobtainable and maybe you bit off more than you can chew? Perhaps you are feeling depressed at the slow, or no, progress so far? Well, who the heck doesn’t today with this dang card hanging out there. But you know what? Your plan was likely a good one, your goals are obtainable, and you need to plow through that crap. It is always hard to get back into the swing of things after a long weekend. For me it is no small amount of panic at being blindsided with a bunch of things I had no idea were going to be put on my plate, let alone have the aggressive kind of deadline they happen to have. Can I even do this? Am I going to fail completely in a very public way? Deep breath! Rework that to-do list, start shifting priorities, and ask for help if I need it, right? Yeah. Good advice. Thanks!
Well today we have a card from the Major Arcana: The Chariot. The obvious read of this card is typically feeling pulled in two different directions; a choice that needs to be made or inner turmoil. It could be about that for you, but it also could be about competition; your own competitive drive or butting up against another’s. There may be a confrontation and it may even be filled with aggression – your own or someone else’s. However this situation presents itself to you, face it squarely and directly. Don’t put it off. It is inevitable. Better to plow through it so you can move forward.
So, I see you have a plan. Good job! Maybe you have even laid the foundations for that plan and lined up a few things. Hold up, though. You are not done yet. A lot of hard works lies ahead. Still, it has to feel good right? A plan! A path! Now to move forward with confidence. Roll up your sleeves, put some comfortable shoes on, some pants you can really move in, and pack some snacks. This is the beginning. So exciting!
I want to congratulate you on not quitting your job (or making some other big change) impulsively yesterday. It’s good to think life altering decisions through. Now that the crisis has passed though, perhaps you should think about the situation a little bit more and make a plan. The Page of Wands tells us that you will be experiencing the rush of creativity to make changes in the future. Nothing concrete will be happening for a while, but right now you have the energy to think of a plan and take those first steps. Go you!
This card usually heralds sudden change that is disruptive. It could be due to outside forces, but it could also be due to an impulsive decision you yourself make. Try to at least think things through before you take action. It may just be that you need some change, but suddenly quitting your job, or breaking up with your significant other, or cleaning out your bank account to buy a mid-life crisis car might not serve you or your loved ones well in the end. At least sleep on it! Whatever changes come down the line will be disruptive. This could be good, or this could be not so good – so take care.
Well, there almost couldn’t be a more perfect card for a “case of the Mondays,” eh? This card represents struggle so have that extra cup of coffee and maybe take a mid-day meditation break to remind yourself that hurdles are meant to be jumped over, but sometimes you end up knocking them down and skinning your knees. It’s okay. It happens. Deep breath. Keep on moving and working through those things that are in your way, pay attention to those details and above all be kind to yourself and always try to see the humor in every nut-bag situation you face today. It’s Monday and it for sure isn’t that blissful King of Pentacles weekend we just had. Variety is the spice of life! Ok, I’ll shut up now. Besides, I need more coffee to deal with all of the crap that seems to be going wrong at work today…
To be truthful I am posting my first “Tarot Card of The Day” because I am fiddling around with this freebie theme and it’s been a little confusing to say the least. It’s purty, but I don’t know how I feel about the navigation being at the bottom. I think I figured out how to set up that navigation, but until I actually post something I won’t know will I? So I pulled a card to take us through the weekend and now I feel committed to getting this posted today.
The King of Pentacles showing King Midas with his Midas touch! Come on! I can’t spit on that. And neither should you. We have that golden touch right now. It won’t last, and we should be grateful for that. No one can eat gold food now can they? But whatever project you have been thinking of doing you really can’t go wrong, and if things don’t go 100% your way with it then rest assured that it’s all a part of the process and success is inevitable.
