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. 

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.
