Welcome to Tarot Tuesday for the week of May 29th, 2018! My monthly free Tarot card readings were so popular, I decided to make them a weekly feature. If you want to be sure to catch the next one, you can follow my blog on WordPress or Bloglovin’, stalk my Facebook, Twitter, or other social media (all my links are in the widget on the left), or simply bookmark this site and set an alarm on your phone for Tuesdays at 8am EST.
For those wondering, I use my Universal Waite Smith Tarot Deck to draw the cards, but since it’s so well loved (I’ve owned it for a bazillion years), I then substitute my Radiant Deck for the photographs. And for the record, I take a new picture of the card backs every week – first, I do the cards face up, then flip them over and take a snap of the back. I add the numbers and such with Canva, and use the picture from the top of the post to create the blog graphic.
Also, while it probably doesn’t need to be said, I’m saying it anyway – this is for fun, and my messages should never be a substitute for your own good judgement and common sense. In fact, that applies to most things in life – if your gut tells you it’s not right, always listen.
Now, on to the reading! Pick the card (or cards) that you’re drawn to, then scroll down to the bottom of this post for the card reveal and my short interpretation of what to expect in the upcoming week.
Now that you’re all set with your choice, it’s time to scroll to the bottom of the post for the big reveal.
And as you’re scrolling through, please enjoy this musical interlude from one of the many extremely talented musicians on Steemit. I discovered this song when browsing through @meno‘s post Open Mic Week 86 – Top 5 Selection and Honorable Mentions. This song by @claratymusic doesn’t have a title, but it has an awesome vibe, and I loved it as soon as I heard it.
“The simplest things are usually true
And take the most courage to see
Nod along and act like a fool
And you’ll be just like me
I’m stubborn as a goat at a gate
Sometimes I forget what’s at stake
Ego plays some funny games
and I play them too”
For the rest of the lyrics, and to suggest a possible name for her song, check out the post Steemit Openmic Week 86 Claraty Untitled New Original Song.
Okay, now it’s time for the big card reveal. Your message for this week is…
Drum roll, please and thank you
1. Eight of Pentacles
Back to the drawing board.. One of the best, most reliable ways to make things better is slow, steady, and focused work. You’ve been scattered and unfocused because of the turmoil around you. It’s time to take a deep breath, and if necessary, start from the beginning again. Try not to think about the end game – instead give your attention to ensuring the details are right, and you’re doing your best work. And don’t despair – you were definitely on the right track, and as Maxwell Smart would say, you only “missed it by that much” and you’ll be back on track in no time!
2. Three of Pentacles
Job well done! All your training, practicing, and hard work is paying off. You have that thing that you can do better than anyone else, and you’re starting to get noticed for it. You may find people want to buy your stuff, consult with your expertise, or they might even make you an offer you can’t refuse. It may also mean that while you have talent, you’ll go further if you enlist the help of others – either collaborating on a project, getting funding from an outside source, or just encouraging and giving support to people doing similar things. Remember, “one does not simply make the dream work without the teamwork.” *grin*
3. The World
Journey’s End. You’ve been moving towards a goal, and after all your steps (and missteps), you’ve finally reached your destination. Don’t believe it? Think about where you were this time last year, and see how far you’ve come. This can also mean a sudden epiphany about your place in the grand scheme of things, and a desire to connect to a greater community. In either case, it’s time to celebrate, while also getting ready for your next journey (just like Seneca the Younger, and the song both say, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end”).
So, what did you think of your message? Please be sure to shout out in the comment section, and let me know what you thought. And, as is the case with all my posts, if you enjoyed it, please feel free to share. Bright blessings!
