Weekend Tarot Forecast 2/1-2/3


Page of Cups | Queen of Coins | The Fountain ( An additional card specific to the Fountain Tarot creating a deck of 79 instead of the tradition 78.)

The Weekend Tarot Forecast is short and sweet. Make time for your creativity. Play with whatever sparks your interest. Remember: All that glitters is gold. What do you value? 

Does your work light you up inside? When you do what you love all people and distractions should fall away as you concentrate on what is connected to your own heart. The rhythm of your work should create a meditation, when you are in it, time seems to stop and you can play with your tools for hours on end. This also means you should cut out any distraction so you can concentrate on shaping your talent. The Page of Cups tells me you might feel like a beginner, but you have natural talent and ability so you should definitely keep going.

Stop worrying about money. The Queen of Coins will not let you starve. This person might be a loving partner who values your work and is willing to support you and give you the time and space you need in order to create. Even if you want to make money from your creative work, do not place your emphasis on earning money. The love part must come first. Love what you do. 

I see a potential benefactor watching you. The Queen of Coins is no fool, this person knows magic when she sees it, even if you are new to the experience of creating whatever it is. As long as you approach your work with curiosity and wonder, what you do will be seen as valuable. Use your creativity, you have oodles of it. Whoever is watching you grow appreciates your enthusiasm and willingness to play with your tools.

Your experimentation will lead to a new world opening to you and you will begin to see the world in a much different way. It’s important for you to truly value your ideas because they are original and they reflect who you are. Pay attention to what you are creating and watch it flourish over time.

A project that starts from a place of experimentation has the potential to transform your life as well as others. What do you think about changing someone’s perception of the universe? That’s a tall order! It only takes one other person to seeing you as a twinkling star in the sky and to comment on your sparkle for other people to be able to see you. What do you want others to see?

Tarot Message for the Week:

9 of Cups     Queen of Wands     Judgement

deck used: The Prisma Visions Tarot

I’m really awesome, but I’m the only one that knows it.

Just a little patience, yeah, yeah….

What are you waiting for? Let’s get this party started!

Quick clues to the tarot message for the week:

The 9 of Cups represents a dream, desire, or wish — something that you want to manifest in your life, but, with this wish comes great responsibility. You have to do the work, regardless of what that work looks like. It’s not always stars and sparkles when you are trying to get a project off the ground — do the dirty work too. If this project has been in a gestation period for 9 months, now is the time to start telling everyone you know!

The presence of the Queen of Wands tells me you are up for the task, you don’t need anyone to help you, you might even be someone who likes most of the creative control anyway. You know what to do and who to speak with to get the outcome or experience you desire — use your network and keep the lines of communication open.

For this reading, the Judgement card has a dual purpose: to let you know you are definitely heading in the right direction with your creative project, but, when you get really close to achieving your goal you start to doubt yourself and back pedal. Keep your doubts at bay, and really focus on an outcome. You are so close to getting what you want, why don’t you finish what you started regardless of what you think it looks like? You are your own worst critic, let your audience be the judge.

Here’s a story:

A few years ago, I went cycling with my husband (who is a far more experienced cyclist than I am) and we decided to ride our bikes to the Sandy River that was about 15 miles away from our home. Getting to the river was a breeze, but the return trip presented a very painful hill that I knew was going to be a challenge for me to climb. When it was time to leave (and do the work) my husband did his best to cheer me on with songs of triumph and overcoming obstacles (the theme from Rocky comes to mind), but I was stuck in a negative thought pattern (When is this ride going to be over?) and felt genuinely angry that I had to climb this hill.  My resistance was strong: I didn’t want to climb this hill slowly, I wanted to power through the experience and get it over with, I wanted to be on top of the hill  (achieve my goal).  What I needed was a combination of patience and persistence.

Eventually, I DID make it to the top of the hill and I did feel like I had accomplished something, but, the real lesson was that I needed to slow down and accept the challenge that was presented as being part of the overall experience (even if it didn’t meet my expectation) instead of trying to power through and ignore what I perceived as an obstacle.

Here’s a great quoted from Steven Pressfield, author of the War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles, if you change the word “professional” to whatever it is you are working on (parenting, cat-wrangling, art, etc.) you can apply in whatever way you see fit:

“The professional steels himself at the start of a project, reminding himself it is the Iditarod, not the sixty-yard dash. He conserves energy. He prepares his mind for the long haul. He sustains himself with the knowledge that if he can just keep those huskies mushing, sooner or later the sled will pull in to Nome.”

Advice: Sing your song and allow other people to hear it; stop judging the progress you’ve already made. Do something to get your project out into the world. Use the “go tiger” attitude that is symbolized by the presence of the Queen of Wands. Use your network by making phone calls, sending emails, using your blog or social media, get your information out into the world, and, just wait. There is a big difference between productive waiting and just sitting back doing nothing.

Just a little patience, yeah, yeah, so sang Guns N’ Roses, but it’s more than that. It’s patience coupled with proper pacing and productivity. You might have to organize or work on some of the details, but you are almost finished!

Does this reading resonate with you? If you are working on getting your own creativity or passion off the ground maybe a tarot reading with me will help get you past any real or imagined blocks you might be experiencing.
