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: 4/13-4/17

Five Day Tarot ForecastDeath | 5 of Pentacles | Wheel of Fortune | King of Cups | Page of Swords

Maybe there was something about the old system that simply wasn’t working for you. That doesn’t mean that you won’t miss it, or won’t wish things were still the way they used to be. What would happen if you scrapped those old ideas, old patterns, old ways of being and started fresh? The Death card is a metaphor, in reality it is actually a gateway to personal transformation. It’s not easy. It’s not painless. It’s not without loss. What transformation is without real loss? I see you struggling with this idea today. You might even deep dive into some self-pity and an attitude that reflects that this is the hand you are always dealt.  Why me? Maybe you feel like you are always on the brink of achieving what you want, only to have it taken from you before reaching the final goal and achieving the type of satisfaction you would like feel. In the end, this is the problem with expectations. Maybe you achieved what you were suppose to achieve with this work, project, friendship – whatever it is you now have to say goodbye to. The 5 of Pentacles is not a fun card. No one wants to feel it. But, is it true? Are you completely penniless or destitute or are you simply worried that you will be this way? Is there really no one for you to fall back on? Is there no one for you to call? I am not saying people do not experience real loss, but so often the lesson of the 5 of Pentacles is: If you feel penniless, destitute, or friendless – What are you going to do about it? Midweek we have the blessing of the Wheel of Fortune. I see you picking yourself up by the bootstraps and charting a new course. A new destiny awaits, the only thing that you ever needed was forward momentum. Lean into the future. There is also, someone for you to lean on. Maybe this person helps you dream of all that you can be. Don’t stay stuck with a life-long cycle of negative thinking, when you can fly into an ambition and creative future with someone at your side. Don’t cut down the only person who is holding you up at this time.
