I had a Weekend Tarot Forecast that I prepared last week (when much different energies were swirling in the air), but in light of all the stress and tension we are currently seeing and experiencing I thought I would scrap that and move forward with this next week’s message:
You might feel like you are in shock, as if your power (or energy source) is slowly draining from your body. Your head might feel fuzzy and you might be experiencing depression or anxiety. I hear someone saying: I just need to rest. I can’t handle any more of this. Your response to stress and tension might be to close your eyes, to sleep and to go within, but you cannot pretend that stress and tension do not exist. What you are experiencing is very real. Just because you shut the door and close yourself off from the reality of what is occuring doesn’t mean the reality is no longer there. You might seek to escape the anger, the stress, the tension, the anxiety, the grief or the violence, but that doesn’t mean any of it will just go away. At some point, you will have to recognize your own place in the cycle of what is occurring because this is a cycle and you do have a place within it. You cannot continue to believe that it’s out of your hands or you cannot do anything to help the situation. You cannot remain motionless any longer. You cannot remain on the sidelines. You cannot stand by and idly watch as the world implodes. The world is changing. Ideas are changing. People are changing. We are all evolving. It’s possible you might feel out of touch with what is really occurring in your environment, but the next generation is coming in forcefully. They want to be seen. They want to be recognized. They want to be supported. And most of all, they want to be heard. You might believe that you don’t play a role in what others experience or you might believe that what is happening has no relevance to your own life, but it does have relevance, you do play a part. You are either part of the problem or part of the solution. Even the quiet observer can be seen as complicit. Silence can be read as acquiesce. You will only be part of the change when you use the power of your own voice. Others might not like what they hear, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t say it. Stand up for what is right. Do the right thing. Support the people in your environment who want to change the world for the better. People who think outside of the box will lead us into a more diverse and inclusive future. Some people will be hurt. Some people will be left behind. Will it be you? What can you do to experience the best possible outcome? How will you help? How will you express yourself? What tension, anger, frustration, or grief will finally be released once you stand up and do the right thing? How will you liberate yourself?

At the beginning of the week, you might feel like you need to defend what is yours (I hear some defensive thinking: Stay off my turf! and That was my idea!), yet, no one can get remotely close to claiming what you have built and no one can take credit for your original work. Remember that an idea cannot be copy written, that’s why you can see 100 different people take an idea and put their own spin on it. You will find the people who want what you have to offer. You will always own the rights to your own work (your portfolio, your examples, your voice). When it comes to defending what you’ve built, try adopting a softer and more inclusive philosophy, you might consider thinking: We should defend what we’ve built or We should protect each others work. You are not the only one who does the work that you do, if you reach out to your peers, if you support them, you will find they will support you too. Each person has their own individual take or version of the same theme. If you are competing for a new job, please know that you have what it takes to get the position. You are seen as professional with experience under your belt. You can do this work and do it well.
The King of Pentacles assures you will receive a good chunk of change for the work you do. Make sure your work really shines and reflects who you truly are (make it exclusively your own), but acknowledge the folks who have blazed a trail for you to follow; acknowledge the people who are in the same position you are. You will always attract more flies with honey, as the saying goes. When you follow the example of people who have come before you, and acknowledge the work of others, you will start to notice your values are in line with a particular group and this group has a really specific hierarchy with rules to follow. Knowing what your place is within this framework will be important for you, especially once you are ready to take the next step with your work.
You might have a short term project that is coming your way. Say yes to whatever is being offered. It will come in quickly and the competition for this work might be stiff, but you have what it takes. Look at the people around you and recognize you are in a position to take it to the next level. Your choices have led you to the exact place you should be. Energetically, you can ride this wave of prosperity with your peers. There is a natural momentum that will take you into the future, learn to co-create, and build something powerful together. Learn how to be part of a team.
You have some solid ideas that have momentum, run with them and see where they take you. I see more than a hint of prosperity in your future and I see you climbing the ladder of success. The world is your oyster. Find the pearl!
