Thoughts for the Week:

If I was a client, I think I’d say: “You asked about how to use this next week to move closer to your goal of a successful side business. I think given the cards in front of us, the week will be about balancing the practical with the mystical. Your side business involves a great deal of intuition and art, but in order for it to be successful, you have to approach it from a much more stable and practical place. You need to plan for intuitive space. You to need to manage your art. Each card tells us not only a part of that, but perhaps which action is best suited for each day this week. Let’s take a look at each in turn…”

1. Sunday (Sun) True Self, Ego, Life Force, Money 7 of Coins

How you get your life force revitalized: “Make a plan! Get prepared! If you don’t have all you need, get it. That calendar better be out and you need to start writing things down in it. Sunday is your day to do that, so you’ll be productive this week.”

2. Monday (Moon) Emotions, Changes, Journeys Ace of Cups

How you get your emotional needs met: “At the core of this is love. Do all that planning with love and gratitude and not only will your plans be better, your life now will be better. On Monday, relax a little.”

3. Tuesday (Mars) Ambition, Energy, Risk The Hierophant 

How you express your energy. Your drives: Tuesday is a day when you are typically all systems go, but you can’t this week as you have to go to Back To School Night. It’s ok. be the teacher. What can you learn from this role to help you with your side business?

4. Wednesday (Mercury) Communication, Business Matters King of Coins

Your communication style. What stimulates you intellectually: “Do you even have a budget? Do you know how much this side gig is already costing? Do you know how much it might? These are things to consider on Wednesday.”

5. Thursday (Jupiter) Faith, Luck, Abundance Queen of Coins

How you achieve a sense of faith and optimism: “Count your blessings on Thursday. And do a check in, too. Have you created space for good sleep, time for a dream diary? The Queen asks us to be a good mother to ourselves, and her gift is to create structure to nurture creativity in her children.”

6. Friday (Venus) Love, Beauty, Pleasure The Magician

How you express love. Who/What attracts you: “What can you impact? What can you reasonably do? We often get all Willy Wonka on an idea we love. That’s great. But evaluate this week at the end. Where could you work magic, and where did you not have the energy? What felt good and successful? Give that more time, not less next week, and ignore the rest. The Magician doesn’t’ give a damn about anything he doesn’t love.”

7. Saturday (Saturn) Discipline, Work, Stability Page of Cups

Your work ethic. The way you embody discipline: “You will learn a lot this week. You’ll learn a lot about how to manage your emotional energy.”

“I also can’t help but notice that in this spread, we have figures of people (Court Cards) opposite the cards of archetypes (Majors). There is a lesson here too. We want to be the mystical teacher like the Hierophant, but in reality we are a King with responsibilities. We want to be the Magician who can manifest his desires in a creative frenzy, but we are a Page, and we don’t have those skills yet. That’s ok. We can hold the ideal in our minds as we work it out. it’s never wrong to dream big, as long as we take small steps here in the real world, with what we have right now.”
