Weekend Tarot Forecast 5/1-5/3


6 of Cups | The Hermit | Ace of Wands

What did you used to love doing? How can you reflect on your experiences from the past and grow from them? What new path is waiting for your attention and enthusiasm?

The 6 of Cups really speaks to me of the ways in which you used to learn – through experimentation, play, and taking emotional risks. Whether that was learning from the friendships you developed, or learning from your family of origin, or learning from the generosity of others (like the time your neighbor gave you a keyboard because they noticed yours needed some repair, or a friend gave you a mixed tape because they wanted to share some new music with you, or a parent gave you dance lessons, so you could learn more about dance). The 6 of Cups is a card of receptivity, emotional growth and gifts.

Maybe you are remembering you have some unfulfilled creative dreams, or someone from your past is reminding you about how you met. Maybe you are getting together with family members you haven’t seen for some time and they are reminding you of who you used to be.

When you shine a light into the past, what do you see? Did you learn from your environment? Or do some past mistakes or roads not taken continue to haunt you? The Hermit card tells me you have spent plenty of time thinking about the choices you were given. If you made mistakes, you have come to terms with how you dealt with any problem that came your way. If you have been fantasizing about “the way things used to be” remember that your memory might be playing some tricks on you. The presence of The Hermit tells me that only through honest reflection are you able to truly hear, and to see how your life choices created who you are at this moment in time. At some point, you needed to guide yourself away from a painful past, a painful memory and order to become the person you are right now.  You no longer have rose colored glasses on. You can look at your past with maturity and honesty, knowing that everyone did there best, and there was a mixture of experiences, some good and some bad. But you learned.

You are now being offered an opportunity. A fresh start. You might feel a sense of renewal. A surge of creative potential. By starting something entirely new, you have the ability to free yourself from whatever cords or attachments want to keep you the same.

Sometimes friends and family do not want to see that we’ve grown or changed. Sometimes people in our environment have preconceived ideas of who we are. You now have the ability to  free yourself from whatever is haunting you.

A bright new future awaits. You have the potential to do great things. Build on what you already know, do not live your life as you did before, create something entirely new from what you have spent your lifetime learning. 

Five Day Tarot Forecast: 4/20-4/24

It’s like you are being offered opportunities that you are not taking advantage of. What are your reasons for not responding? I do see some clear signs of escapism. You might be feeling overwhelmed or frustrated by too many obligations at this time (escapism might be how you cope with stress and it can look like: excessive drinking, excessive pot-smoking, excessive social media time or even excessive sleeping, if it’s more than you need).

Be mindful of your opportunities as they are presented because some opportunities will not come around a second time. You might miss something really special if you focus too heavily upon the leisure-lifestyle. There really can be too much of a good thing – even while in quarantine. 

Remind yourself of who you truly are: independent, trust-worthy, accountable, organized, and prosperous (even during quarantine). You are someone who is able to handle the details; if you work with others they know they can depend on you to do your part. Best of all – you enjoy what you do. If you work for yourself, this work feels like a great fit and if you work with others but are given a lot of autonomy at your job, you are a great fit for the team you work with and people genuinely like you.

I know you are tired and I know you feel like you don’t want to take on any more responsibility at this time. What burdens can you set down? How can you manage your stress level a little more healthfully and a little more responsibly? Where do you truly need to focus?

As you near the end of the week, I see other people admiring your work. You give your work your very best and it shines. Others think highly of you and they know you go above and beyond. This type of admiration is what leads to raises and future job prospects. Always do your best work, especially when you are signing your name to it. And, I think you need to know your best work, isn’t always perfect work. Sometimes your best work, is showing up when others do not. Sometimes your best work is trying hard. Sometimes your best work is being proud of what you do and not judging the results more harshly than the people around you do.
