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 17: What can I do to bring more financial abundance into my life?
Today, The Empress makes an appearance for our experiment. This card represents fertility and nurturing, often manifested through creativity. Beauty and sensuality rule here and any type of artistic endeavor falls under the Empress. This creativity can lead to abundance, as this card demonstrates abundance on many levels.
The Empress is also about nurturing & healing, which can – and should – be combined with our creative work. Many people focus only on the abundance but forget about their clients – the people for whom they are creating. Often the most successful people have a similar philosophy: “How can I best help my client?” Our work should not be solely about making money (although this is an important aspect as well) but also about adding to the community and to the world, about being able to help & heal others.
So today’s lesson might be this: to create that which you love and strive to help others in the process, for often it is in giving to others that we also receive the most for ourselves. Nurture yourself & others during the creative process. In addition to bringing in financial abundance into our own lives, being creative and focusing on helping others can aid in digging ourselves out of troubles or grief as well.
The idea of Customer Service fits well in here too. The Empress relates to nurturing, harmony and abundance and one of the best ways to create these things for yourself and/or your business is to offer exceptional customer service. People tend to be loyal to those businesses that treat them like people and who appear to take a genuine interest in the satisfaction of their customers. Stand behind your product to ensure customer satisfaction. If there is a problem, work hard to fix it and cheerfully refund the customer’s money if necessary. In these days of declining customer service, you have the opportunity to really stand out from amongst the competition by focusing on your customers/clients first and money second.
The Empress card is also about creativity and beauty, both of which I find to go hand in hand. It is difficult to be creative and innovative when in a cold, sterile or unsightly environment. Thus, if you wish to stimulate the creative side of yourself, The Empress card advises you to try to surround yourself with beautiful and meaningful objects. So much the better if you have the opportunity to be in nature.
The Empress is often depicted as pregnant, which can represent the birth of something new or being pregnant with new ideas. If you have been kicking a new idea around in your head as of late, then The Empress encourages you to bring it into the world. This is especially true for any type of artistic endeavor. The Empress is about expressing your creativity and birthing new projects, new ideas, new works of art. If you feel that you are not artistic by nature, give it a try anyway. It just might stimulate ideas in other areas of your business.
