Tarot Reading of the Week: 5/6/19 – 5/12/19

May 6 – May 12

 

Overview:  Your closest relationships and the things you are in the process of realizing about yourself come center stage.  I feel like ideas for lifestyle changes have been rattling around your brain for a while, but this is the week when they become most urgent.  This is also going to be a week when you may be forced into one of those important relationship conversations. Be as diplomatic as possible, as I don’t feel like this is the week to burn bridges.  The point is to say what’s on your heart and move forward, not burn the crops and salt the earth. The point is also to figure out how you and the other half of this relationship want to deal with this new information.  This will also be an intensely emotional week that will leave you prone to prophetic dreams, deja vu experiences, and even psychic insights. Just don’t mistake anxiety for prophecy. There is also a sense of juggling and reorganizing this week.  As always, THIS IS NOT MENTAL HEALTH ADVICE OR DIAGNOSIS.  THIS IS FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE ANY SUGGESTIONS MADE IN THIS COLUMN AS MENTAL HEALTH ADVICE OR DIAGNOSIS.

 

I asked the cards what we need to know about May 6 – May 12 and I got:  The Lovers (number 6, an emotional crossroads, an important relationship, an important choice to be made, needing to figure out if a relationship is based on superficial factors, possibly a new relationship, renewal of an existing relationship, and possibly needing to maintain one’s identity in a relationship); the Moon (number 18, the need to spend time alone and sit with one’s emotions, mommy issues, creative inspiration, possibly depression, moodiness, self-reflection, and possibly issues from the past); the Fool (number 0, a leap of faith, time to follow one’s intuition, staying true to oneself, trusting one’s judgement, and having faith in oneself); and Two of Pentacles (number 2, mood swings, balancing opposing forces in one’s life, balancing opposite drives within oneself, money fluctuations, a warning against putting too much energy into a relationship, balancing one’s own needs with others’, and the need to prioritize one’s life).  The one word that best describes this spread is codependence. This spread talks about many aspects of codependence, specifically the need to maintain your identity, interests, boundaries, and preferences in an important relationship.  Although the Lovers can signify a business or more transactional relationship, it always signifies a relationship that is close to the heart or one’s sense of survival. It can also signify a career choice, if the work is based on a life’s dream.  I feel like this week the Lovers speaks to an emotional relationship that is likely to be affected by your lifestyle choices, such as changing careers, putting some space between you, pursuing a creative hobby more seriously, or coming to terms with your sexuality.  The Lovers and the Moon give me the feeling that some serious deliberation will go on this week, with the important conversations surrounding it being delayed to possibly the end of the week. The Moon is a seriously moody, emo card. When the Moon appears in a spread, it indicates a time to be still and let yourself feel.  It can also mean your dreams will be a major processing tool for you or that you will find meaning in the oddest things. When reading for a female, the Moon can indicate hormonal imbalances or PMS. The Moon is also a highly intuitive–dare I say psychic–card.  I feel very strongly that this is a great week to meditate and write down any perceptions that feel random or like strays.  Trust me, there will be at least one common theme in all of these strays. If you find yourself getting overly emotional or sentimental while watching a commercial, blame the Moon. The Fool tells me you will probably be pushed out of your thought bubble enough to either blurt out what you’re thinking or at least make teaser statements to initiate the conversation.  Just know that whatever comes out needed to be expressed. The absence of the more devastating or angry cards shows me that you won’t necessarily offend or harm this relationship, but the Two of Pentacles shows me you will need to rearrange your priorities to accommodate this new normal.

 

To Think About:  Were you avoiding talking about this change you’ve been mulling over in order to sidestep potentially uncomfortable sacrifices in your relationships?  Have you asked the other people involved how they feel about the changes you’re thinking about? What aspects of your life can you rearrange to accommodate the new information?

 

Suggestions and Takeaways:

  1. List the changes you want to make in your life.
    1. After each change, write at least one way this change only affects you.

    5. List at least three ways the changes you are planning to make will impact you in a negative or challenging way.
    6. Think about what you listed for d and e.  Make a list of details from your current life that show you this is true.
    7. Think about what you listed for d and e.  Make a list of details from your current life that point to you potentially not having enough information to make an accurate judgment.
  2. Think about the changes you want to make in your life.

    3. What are your opportunities to make these changes a reality?  Is this something you can start now, or do you have to wait until the next fiscal quarter?
    4. What are the threats to the changes you want to make in your life?  Do you anticipate sabotage from others or do you have a pattern of self-sabotage?  Will the market dry up for what you want to create or is it likely one of the resources will diminish?
  3. Based on your SWOT list above, list at least three mini goals you will need to accomplish to make these changes.
    1. After each mini goal, write down a probable time frame to have each one completed.
    2. After each mini goal, write down your motivation to complete this goal from one to ten, with one representing “meh, not motivated” and ten representing “I wanted this done yesterday.”
    3. Which of your mini goals can you accomplish this week?

    5. List three ways that you believe you can have discussion with each of these people.
    6. Are you more likely to initiate a discussion regarding these changes vs. go about your business and let the chips fall where they may?  What are the advantages and disadvantages of each approach?
  5. List the ways these relationships will need to change as a result of how you want to change your life.
    1. After each relationship, rate how much the changes you are considering will change this relationship.  Use a one to ten scale, with one representing “it’ll stay the same” and ten representing “complete unheaval.”
    2. After each relationship, rate how comfortable you are with each change on a scale of one to ten, with one representing “completely fine” and ten representing “totally not ready.”

Tarot Reading of the Week: 5/1/19 – 5/5/19

May 1 – May 5

 

Overview:  Were you honest with yourself and others over the last couple days?  This spread tells me that although the honeymoon is definitely over with a longstanding work and/or personal relationship (it doesn’t feel particularly warm and fuzzy), these next few days will help solidify your new normal.  The overall vibe of this week is you’re probably not going to get exactly what you want and that’s okay. A secondary vibe is those you work most closely with aren’t who you thought they were and that’s okay too. What’s important is that you retained your integrity in the face of their actions.  Oh, you say you didn’t handle the situation as gracefully or assertively as you would’ve liked?  This is a great week to set the tone, in that case. You will still be feeling any fall out from whatever choice you made in the last couple days, but you have the choice to join in any negativity around you or be part of the solution.  Neither should involve allowing yourself to be baited by a two-faced agony aunt, however. As always, THIS IS NOT MENTAL HEALTH ADVICE OR DIAGNOSIS.  THIS IS FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE ANY SUGGESTIONS MADE IN THIS COLUMN AS MENTAL HEALTH ADVICE OR DIAGNOSIS.

 

I asked the cards what you need to know about May 1 – May 5 and I got:  Six of Wands (number 6, success as a result of training and hard work, victory, success in business or career, a successful creative pursuit, and positive choices being rewarded); Seven of Swords (number 7, duplicity, mind games, a cunning and manipulative person, schemes that ultimately don’t work, someone planning a surprise, impulsive acts, hiding one’s intentions from others, being two-faced, possibly a situation calling for tact and diplomacy, and possibly the need to keep one’s thoughts and feelings to oneself); Death (number 13, the end of a phase, burned bridges, rebirth, total transformation, the need to forgo old attachments, letting go of something that no longer nourishes one, inevitable change, and a warning against dwelling on resentment); and Princess of Pentacles (earth sign female, new projects, growth and promise, the need to make an idea or project a reality, new study or apprenticeship, a good time for home improvements, and possibly a sense of groundedness).  This spread feels like it is focusing on work, thanks to the Six of Wands and Princess of Pentacles. These two cards tend to be more work-oriented than emotional and thankfully they foretell ultimate success, but the middle cards make the waters a little murkier. You have the Seven of Swords, which comes at you in the form of an “anonymous” office survey or the boss’s two-faced pet. It doesn’t matter what form this energy takes because it feels like this person or survey is digging for some specific dirt, like they need a certain piece of information to justify the trash they have been talking. They may come off like they’re concerned about you or just want things to turn out alright, but their actions are all about their predetermined agenda. Therefore, do not rise to any bait. Remember how the last couple readings were about you holding your tongue to not start World War III? Well, this week is about extreme tact and diplomacy, whilst leaving your personal opinions out of it.  Stick to the facts and don’t respond to any “oh, that must’ve been so hard for you”-type fakery. Death continues to tell us while you cannot unsee what you have seen, you can build something better with what remains. The Princess of Pentacles shows us that the best course of action is to remain solution-focused. Limit your time listening to others’ venting or moaning and avoid joining them in their bitch fests. Any complaining, mocking, shaming, venting, or melting down you do this week can and will come back to bite you, thanks to the aforementioned snake in the grass.

 

To Think About:  Do you have definite ideas of how to make things better or have you gotten complacent in the role of complaining martyr?  What do you get out of venting and complaining? How can you separate emotion from fact when your emotions are at an all-time high?  Who are the more self-interested people in your life? How can you deflect them?

 

Takeaways and Suggestions:

  1. Complaining vs. finding solutions is a central theme this week.
    1. List at least three difficulties you are having in your personal life.
    2. List at least three difficulties you are having in your financial life.
    3. List at least three difficulties you are having with family.
    4. What do the difficulties in each category have in common?  How are they different?
  2. Not making a situation worse by focusing on how you were wronged or by digging for dirt on others was also a theme this week.
    1. List at least one time you have focused on how you were done wrong by complaining, venting, kvetching, etc.
    2. What is one positive thing you got from this (i.e. attention, reassurance that you have a future in comedy, sympathy, the focus off your behavior, et al)?  Was this your main motivation for doing it?
    3. What was something negative you got from this?  Was the fall out worth the reward?
    4. List at least one time you have acted as a snitch, as an agony aunt, or participated in gossip.
    5. What was one positive thing you got from this (e.g. to look like the hero, to get the focus off of you, revenge on someone you believe harmed you, etc.)?  Was this your main motivation for doing it?
    6. What was something negative you got from this?  Was the fall out worth the reward?
    7. What are the similarities in your motivations for both situations?
    8. Looking back, how do you wish you had handled each situation?  How can you handle this better this week?
  3. Commit to doing at least two of the following this week:
    1. Doing all of your venting in a journal.
    2. Meditating at least once a day.
    3. Exercising at least four times this week.
    4. Finding something positive to say about everyone you encounter this week.
    5. Coming up with at least three solutions to your current dilemmas.
    6. Turning all probing questions or agony aunt tactics back on the manipulator by stating simple fact.
    7. Using “I” statements and not exaggerating.
