DAY 78: TAROT – WEEK 07.08…

A three card reading for the week ahead:

1. III CUPS
Success. This card involves creative fulfilment, projects and relationships surrounding these endeavours. It calls on the energy of the creative muses (music, art, theatre) and signifies that if you are involved in, or pursue, any of these things – then progress is being made and you have found something that lets you express your feelings, fill creative needs, and will bring happiness and fulfilment.

2. KING OF CUPS
An older man, who will be of assistance and guidance, and it would be wise to listen to him. He may be in the past or immediate future, if not here at present. If you don’t think that this card relates to a specific individual then the card signifies intuition, correct use of feelings and judgement, and fair play.

3. IV CUPS
Pause. You are feeling unhappy and / or unfulfilled at present. A case of the blues may be obscuring the positives and excitement at present, and bringing cloudiness and uncertainty. It’s a time to look inwards and check that your own negativity isn't feeling this and check your outlook, as the answers may lie within, and you may be the only one holding you back and obscuring your judgement.

SUMMARY:
Three cards all in the same suit is a very strong message. The cups relate very heavily with emotions, relationships, decisions and feelings. The appearance of all three support my current emotions and state of mind.
Let’d call it the post-holiday-blues (amongst other things).
I also had a repeat of last week’s IV cups. Last week when I drew the card, my blues hadn't set in…but a few days later they did. And now, back at Monday, I’m in it. And that advice to check myself and my own outlook feels very prudent.
One thing I’ve been getting a lot of joy, peace an fulfilment from this past week, as I have been working through mixed emotions, has been my creative projects – music, art, writing. So III Cups is a lovely omen and reassurance that this is the right way to channel my energy.
I think these feelings may linger for a while longer…but if, as ever, I follow my gut, intuition, and put my energy into my creative pursuits, I trust that I'l be just fine.

DAY 71: TAROT – WEEK 31.07…

DAY 71: TAROT – WEEK 31.07…

A three card reading for the week ahead:



1. IX WANDS
Stability. There is a set of circumstances that are based on strength and clarity and have positivity because of an understanding of a structure, organisation and self-discipline. The outcome of any situation is likely to be positive, but even if its not the outcome desired, there is little of importance to be lost or be missing out on. Whats more important is the journey and life experience that’s been gained along the way.

2. IV CUPS
A pause. A possible period of feeling unfulfilled, lack of purpose, clarity or direction. You may be trying to escape reality or more pressing issues going on in life. Cloudiness may be obscuring any feelings of positivity. A time to check oneself for any negativity or ill feelings that are being held onto that may be dragging you down or holding you back.

3. III WANDS
A successful enterprise. Patience. Solid foundations have been established and earned but you are still working hard at carving out your place, niche and full potential. Some problems may arise, but can be easily and confidently overcome if you keep calm and stress free about the situation, and keep mentally alert. There is strength in creative endeavours and courage and initiative will be rewarded. But you must be patient. It will come, but maybe not right now.

OVERVIEW
I think this spread perfectly sums up my typical feelings and emotions of the post-travel come down and blues. I know that I’m tired, jet lagged and feeling a bit flat, hazy and directionless as I re-enter my normal life again. I have loads of ideas and excitement for projects and endeavours brewing in my head, but am still finding a way, and thinking about, how to implement them, which is frustrating and can stress me out, and make me worry I’ve lost my creative enthusiasm. These cards tell me to hold my nerve – that i’m on the right path, and to just stay calm, level headed and be patient. The clarity and spark that I want will come, but its early days. Don’t push it, I need to rest and just find my feet again. The fact I’ve no Major Arcadia cards here tell me that there’s nothing too massive or troublesome, going on here, and these are fleeting times and emotions. Just par of the course and a predictable and expected pattern of feelings, ones that I experience after any overseas adventure. Hold tight, the good stuff will come.
