The poll result of Brexit has given me very deep thoughts. Everything is so unpredictable, stability and prosperity are not givens. We are living in a world full of surprise, the minute I think life is secure; the next minute shocks will follow. Like thunders and storms, earthquake and tsunami. What I see as my permanent possessions, what I feel as comforting and predictable, all can be changed without any warning signals. This is perhaps the new reality. Is my future insecure? With all the magical tools in my bag I cannot control the tides of the sea. So what can I do about my future. I use the Tarot to give me insights. For my friends in the UK who mostly prefer the country to remain in EU, please feel upset for a while but not too long. My angel blessings that you will find courage soon to make plans that will help the country become even stronger and better. Walk with pride, you always do and you always overcome.
Last night I attended an online summer school class organised by the Tarot Readers Academy. The class was delivered by Brigit Esselmont who is one of my favourite Tarot reader and teacher. She is the founder of Biddy Tarot and has inspired many people to live more mindful and enlightened lives, using Tarot as a guide. In her class she talked about how to map our path to manifestation, which was fun and easy to follow. I decided to have a go.
I spent time to meditate on the dream I want to manifest. At this moment in life my biggest want is to have inner peace in an unstable and changing environment. I want to feel positive and confident in the universe that only better things will come if I lose or change my job. Once I have decided this is the goal that aligns with my higher self and it is the one that I wish to manifest, I pulled out my tarot cards and used this manifestation spread to guide my path:
Card 1: where am I now in relation to my goal? Card drawn – The Chariot
Card 2: how am I in relationship with my goal? Card drawn – Ace of Pentacles
Card 3: what do I need to release? Card drawn – Knight of Pentacles
Card 4: what do I need to grow? Card drawn – 7 of Swords
Card 5: what steps can I take? Card drawn – The Hermit
Card 6: what lesson will I need to master? Card drawn – 2 of Pentacles
Card 7: what might I experience over the next 6-12 months? Card drawn – King of Swords
The Chariot assured me that my goal is in alignment with my higher self, I just need to stay focused on this course. Ace of Pentacles advised me that the dream is a practical one as it will settle my worries. I must let go of the idea of stability and comfort! Only when I release them can I adapt to new circumstances, and find ways to break through the situation quickly in clever ways. The Hermit reminded me to think and plan in details and step-by-step, something that I need to learn as I am never good at thoroughness. However the answers and the light are from within. The 2 of Pentacles gave me lots of thoughts. One of my dreams is to use my divinatory crafts and turn them into a business, like retailing and consulting. Perhaps it is time to develop a side business along with the day job, again in a well-planned manner. In the next 6-12 months my thoughts and plans will become more mature, clarity of the mind that I can stay positive and confident in the providence of the universe will become a part of self. Overall, I need to open to alternatives in my day job and take risks, make plans to develop 2 careers at the same time.
Now I have committed to my goal and mapped my path to manifestation. It’s time to connect even more deeply through tarot and optmise my chances of success. So I pulled a single card for meditation:
The Tower card resonated with my reading. Where I am now, is shaky and may not last long. The way forward is to move on. Losing a job or changing a new one looks very risky, but trust the universe the crown jewel is there – only I cannot see it from the top of the tower. Falling is thrilling in a good way. There is nothing to fear to move to some place else. For now, start developing 2 careers – become even better with my day job and start exploring opportunities to make divinatory consultation a meaningful business. Life is so interesting! I show my gratitude to all my blessings.
