Weekly Forecast: Opportunity knocks and then Leaves if you Don’t Answer

Sometimes life presents us with too many choices and, for a moment, we get lost in the possibilities. Fantasizing about where the possibilities may lead is a healthy normal response but be wary of spending too much time sitting on the fence less you want those opportunities to slip through your hands.

Today’s Weekly Tarot Forecast is for you.

Your weekly Tarot Forecast:

Past: Ace of Swords

Present: Seven of Cups

Future: King of Coins

Advice: Two of Wands

It was a moment of absolute clarity for you. The Ace of Swords is in our past position as a reminder of the realization we had not too long ago. Suddenly, things just clicked, and we understood something that had been plaguing our worried minds for awhile.

What was that moment of clarity for you? Did you suddenly realize that your relationship was counterproductive towards your goals? Did you discover what your life’s passion was? Perhaps you realized a pattern in your life that was preventing you from moving forward. Whatever it was, that moment of clarity is the past, and set the stage for where we’re at now: Seven of Cups.

In some ways, that epiphany was the easiest part of your journey, because once you know… you know. Now comes the question: what do you do with it? How do you need to move forward with that knowledge? Do you repair the relationship? Do you pursue your life’s passion and, if so, at what cost? How viable is it to simply abandon bad behaviors especially if there’s a mental or genetic component (as is the often the case with addiction or anxiety)?

The Seven of Cups, in the present position, talks about the choices before us. They are numerous and can be overwhelming especially as we weight the outcomes of any given path. To be clear, these are important decisions that we’re faced with making, with consequences that are vast and far reaching. The future we’re seeking, after all, is the one represented by the King of Coins.

The King of Coins is a future of security and stability. It’s a future of happiness and confidence. It’s a future that isn’t free of struggle but is free of the accompanying worry. It’s a future of a comprehensive insurance policy that assures us whatever trouble lurks ahead is within our ability to handle.

The pressure to make the right decision that yields the future of the King of Coins isn’t subtle and this opportunity isn’t one we want to squander. Yet, it is important that we act decisively, according to the Two of Wands. That relationship isn’t going to get easier to leave with the addition of children. Job opportunities can dry up just as quickly as they rain down upon us if we spend too much time considering which one we want to pursue. Having a life’s passion is a wonderful experience but determining the degree to which you want it to consume you isn’t going to be easier as you also find yourself making other commitments.

 

The advice here is to weigh your choices with wisdom and expediency. Then commit to the path you’ve chosen. It may not be around forever.

Weekly Forecast: Staying Optimistic on the Road Less Traveled

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

Future: Strength

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.
