Not everyone chooses the road less traveled but you’re not everyone. You knew it would be difficult. You knew it would sometimes be lonely. But you also knew it would be worth it. It’s like scaling a mountain just before dawn to see the sunrise. It’s the pregnancy and labor to usher in a new life. It’s risking heartache only to find the love of your life. The problem is that the distance between where you’re at and where you’ll end up is filled with a lot of work and sometimes we all need a little encouragement along the way.
Today’s Weekly Tarot Forecast is for you.
Your weekly Tarot Forecast:
Past: Two of Wands
Present: Eight of Cups
Advice: Knight of Cups
The Two of Wands talks about a fork in the road between two equally desirable paths: an easily traversed well maintained road already mapped or an interesting hidden path filled with exciting possibilities but more difficult terrain. You know the first road leads to a destination you desire but there’s something about the unknown that had your attention…
Perhaps you had played it safe too many times and felt the call of the wild. Or maybe you hate playing it safe and always felt compelled to take the unexpected path. Either way, you found yourself pushing away branches, thick with web, and took your first step on a new path. The thrill of adventure vibrated within.
Was this a new love for you? A new job? Or had you abandoned your career entirely for something more satisfying and fulfilling? Either way, you found yourself swept away by the lure and romance of becoming a pioneer. You embarked into the unknown. Now you find yourself in the midst of a transformation you hadn’t expected.
The road less traveled isn’t an easy road. It isn’t a road for everyone. It isn’t a road for all occasions. But it was the road for you at the exact moment you needed it. Have you realized the changes that started to take root within you? As you moved into the Eight of Cups, you’re not quite the same person you were before you started, when you were weighing two possibilities. The journey that brought you to this moment in time has mirrored the path in the most fascinating example of synchronicity. You have evolved for better and worse. You have developed new rough edges and while smoothing over previously raw cuts.
All of this leads to a future represented by the Strength card as you have a better understanding of what you’re capable of doing. You now have more grit, more depth, and have a better grasp on your own power. You will emerge out of the other side of the path into new territory uncharted for you. Are you excited?
The advice card is the Knight of Cups which reminds you to enjoy the journey, be open to the possible outcomes, and never lose your sense of wonder. A well balanced person requires the strength to survive but also needs the imagination to thrive. After all, eventually, all roads end. It’ll be up to you to write the adventure that follows. Don’t tire yourself out on the journey. Don’t get too focused on the sheer amount of effort required of you. Don’t forget to stop and appreciate the beauty of being on a road unseen by most.
