Hello Lovely Friends,
This is Jonathan with your Weekend Tarot Reading.
The tumult of our time has many of us feeling timid, tender, and ready for a break from it all. It’s natural to want things to return to normal during these chaotic periods, but they will not, and this is a good thing.
We are being challenged to get creative. The old way doesn’t work any more, so we need to find inspiration and look for new ways to meet the challenges around us. This coming week will be a juicy time to tap into your inspiration. It might feel like a gentle whisper, or it may be screaming in your ear to get going!
Keep in mind, when something new is about to come forward in our lives, there are often ‘shadow’ guardians from our past. We must courageously step past them in order to welcome in what is new and fresh.
Following your inner truth is the most beautiful, and sometimes most terrifying, choice you can make. Keep listening to the voice in you who knows what you truly desire, because this week will be full of potent, vital energy that you can access to start manifesting those desires in your life.
Ace of Wands: Heightened Inspiration
The Ace of Wands is full of pure potential and creative, verdant energy. If you have been experiencing a stagnant period lately, get ready for a jolt of new juice to enter your life. Follow your inner truth and your inspiration, give an exciting new project a test drive to see if it lights you up, or revisit something creative that you haven’t explored in a while.
Remember, Aces in the Tarot deck provide pure, essential energy to get us going, but once the project or endeavor gets started, you’ll have to put in your share of good old fashioned elbow grease to get it off the ground. So make sure you really are inspired by what’s calling you.
On the other hand, you might be sitting on an idea that you’ve been waiting for the right moment to explore. Now is a great time to dive into it and get the ball rolling.
If nothing is coming to mind, start to imagine what you’d like to accomplish or bring into your life. Write down what you would do with your life if money and responsibilities were not a consideration. Think about a gift you can bring to the world that only you possess. See just how excited you can get about the possibilities this life has to offer.
Keep your brainstorming playful and light, because it will help to loosen up the fears of scarcity represented in our next card.
Four of Pentacles: Financial Concerns
How is your money life, my love? We have all taken a financial hit on some level with the economic crisis and pandemic surrounding us. This week, the Four of Pentacles is reminding you to be intelligent with your finances, and to loosen up any fear around not having enough money so you can prosper even more.
I know how challenging this can be. The abundance you seek can only really reach you when you soften your grip on it. This is a great time to practice soothing mantras:
“I am safe and taken care of.”
“Everything I need is coming to me in perfect timing.”
“I am surrounded by loving abundance and trust life to provide for me.”
The Four of Pentacles can be a little overprotective, living in lack mentality, but he is also practical and grounded in his financial dealings. So, while you can start changing your mindset, settling your nervous system with these mantras, and changing your belief patterns, it’s also important to make a plan and take the actions you need to create and maintain financial security.
Relaxing your uncertainty about money, and making sure your affairs are in order will prepare you for the next step in our reading for the week.
Two of Wands: Playing With Possibility
The Two of Wands symbolizes the next step after an initial inspiration. This card shows up when something new has come into your life, but there is ground work needing to be done first. You may not get moving on this new project or interest right away, but you can begin drawing up your plans. Let your imagination run wild with what is possible. Be playful.
This is also a great time to do research on whatever is calling out to you. You can look into classes, or other similar projects. Even a small step in the direction of an interest or passion will get the ball rolling.
Adopt a long term perspective, take stock of what will be needed to succeed, and then plot out the course to get you to your goal. It doesn’t have to be set in stone, but just getting moving will start to bring the universe on your side.
These are exciting and chaotic times, but they are filled with possibilities. When everything gets shaken up, there is room for new creativity in your life. Give it a chance, have some fun, and see what’s possible out there for you.
No Turning Back!
Once you start moving, and entering new territory, you might feel a bit shaky while you find your footing. This is totally natural, and it’s ok to feel uncertain. If you find yourself feeling unsure about moving forward, take a deep breath and remember it takes time to get oriented whenever trying something new.
Think about where you’re headed and how good it will feel to get there. Remember to ask for assistance from your guides and angels, and reach out to friends and family who love and support you.
Most importantly, start questioning any old thought patterns about not being able to succeed. They are just old phantoms that you can brush off your shoulder. If you find yourself starting to believe these fearful thoughts, stop, breathe deeply into your belly, and tell yourself how loved and supported you are.
This is a potent week for taking new steps forward.
You can do this! I believe in you, and the more you believe in yourself, honor yourself, and trust in life, the easier your life get.
