Notes on Deck: Deck Interview Coming Soon.

Notes on Spread: I tried to start this reading with a bit of a twist, and asked a specific questions. I have a big, busy week ahead full of commitments I might not be able to meet. So I asked for advice and insight on how to get it all done. Right away, I can see lots of cards that are about stalls, delays, and possibly (fingers crossed) balance. It’s a week where the biggest insight isn’t into how to get it all done, but why I feel like I need to, and where I’m working against myself.

Thoughts for the Week:

1. Sunday (Sun) True Self, Ego, Life Force, Money The Hanged Man

How you get your life force revitalized: “Ok. Right away, we need to re-think the question. It might not be useful to ask ‘how will I get it all done.’ It might be better to ask, what’s essential? or what’s important enough, and what can be let go? The Hanged Man is pointing to a real need to pause, take a deep breath and re-evaluate.”

2. Monday (Moon) Emotions, Changes, Journeys The Sun

How you get your emotional needs met: “Instead of thinking of your commitments, and planning out the to-dos, perhaps it’s better to start with pleasure. What makes you happy? What do you want people to know you for? Perhaps in your big list of to-dos, you start there.”

3. Tuesday (Mars) Ambition, Energy, Risk 2 of Swords 

How you express your energy. Your drives: “Interesting that the space in the spread for your drives, all that Mars energy, is a card about blocked or countered energy. Perhaps this isn’t about too many commitments, but about commitments that work against each other. On Tuesday, pay attention to this for needed insight.”

4. Wednesday (Mercury) Communication, Business Matters 8 of Cups

Your communication style. What stimulates you intellectually: “Well this has been coming up a lot. Because you haven’t been communicating. (This is the first blog post in how long?) You haven’t been feeling stimulated or creative.”

5. Thursday (Jupiter) Faith, Luck, Abundance  4 of Swords

How you achieve a sense of faith and optimism: “In a week about getting it all done, the 4 of Swords in this spot is all about rest, going slow, and being as mindful as possible. Don’t you love it when your tarot deck gives you sass?”

6. Friday (Venus) Love, Beauty, Pleasure 10 of Wands

How you express love. Who/What attracts you: “Huh. Do I express love by saying ‘yes’ more often than I should? Or could this card simply be about trying to get to LAX on a holiday weekend? Or both?”

7. Saturday (Saturn) Discipline, Work, Stability  10 of Cups

Your work ethic. The way you embody discipline: “This is both a great card to see for he start of a holiday weekend, and a good card for this question. Your work ethic has to come from a real love, or it’s never going to work out. I have to pay attention to that this week. Where is my joy, fulfillment, and truest happiness?”
