Deck: The Wizard’s Tarot
This post is part of my 45 Experiment: Using the daily tarot draw to bring more financial abundance into our life. I will be using the Wizard’s Tarot by Corrine Kenner and John J. Bluemen for this experiment’s deck.
Day 16: What can I do to bring more financial abundance into my life?
Making money is not for the faint of heart, as this image displays. In this card, we see a woman who is petting and feeding a wyvern, a fire-breathing dragon that is the mythical equivalent of the Lion. Thus, the Strength card symbolizes strength, determination and self-discipline. So how does this apply to our financial abundance experiment? By suggesting that you need to apply yourself to your ideas, goals or work in order to attain success. That is to say, you may need to force yourself to take action and actually do the required work. So many of us have ideas for businesses or books tossing around in our head that we say we’ll get to someday or tomorrow. Mostly, someday or tomorrow never comes so as such, we need to create our own deadlines and make time to do the work. Schedule time in your daily calendar. Otherwise, it may never get done.
Strength is about overcoming the obstacles that we encounter rather than giving up when things get tough. You might be called upon to demonstrate qualities of self-belief, mental strength and willpower – even standing up for yourself from time to time. The road to success is rarely easy and it certainly does require strength to persevere, especially during those rough times.
Strength requires us to be firm but not lose our temper. Some people and businesses lose customers because of horrible customer service. If you find yourself often losing your temper with clients, perhaps it would be better to put someone else on the front lines. If that’s not possible, then you may have to learn how to work with people in a more non-aggressive manner.
Strength is ruled by Leo and those under this sign do love to shine. So any opportunity that places you in front of others is a fit. This could include CEO, public speakers, presidents, celebrities or teachers. Careers involving the performing arts are an excellent choice too – especially acting or being a musician. Some famous Leo’s include Lucille Ball, President Bill Clinton, Madonna, Napoleon, and Sandra Bullock.
On a practical level, the Strength card often involved the handling of an animal, typically a Lion which bring several career possibilities to mind: Veterinarian, animal trainer, pet sitting business, forest or park ranger, wildlife tracker or anything involving animals. As Leo rules the spine and back, how about being a weight lifter, furniture mover or piano mover? Maybe a chiropractor?
The dragon made me think of science fiction so perhaps writing science fiction & fantasy novels might be a fun way to bring in some extra cash. There once was a woman who had the power to speak with dragons….
