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 18: What can I do to bring more financial abundance into my life?
Today, The Star makes an appearance for our experiment. The Star card signifies hope – the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. This card asks us to stop dwelling on the negative aspects of our lives and our work. Very often, we sabotage ourselves by focusing on lack – on that which we don’t have or didn’t obtain. It’s very easy to rehash our failures and fears over and over again in our minds. This sort of thinking keeps us stuck where we are, unable to move forward. What The Star card does, is to encourage us to have hope in the future.
Since this card follows The Tower, it is often a call for a period of rest and rejuvenation before moving again. I see this as advice: to take time to mediate, speak with a counsellor or simply do some soul searching so that we can once again believe in our ability to create our future. Once our belief and hope is restored, we can approach our work, projects, and ideas with renewed excitement.
If you are a creative type of person or are contemplating a creative endeavor, this card urges you to follow your heart and do it – especially if you find yourself stuck in a career with little future. Many of us are afraid to take that first step. But remember – we have more of a chance making money and having success doing work we love than doing work we dislike.
In the image, a snake is curled around the woman’s arm, which makes me think of rebirth and transformation; literally, recreating oneself. This might be what we need. I know many successful people that have switched to completely different careers and have become a success in doing so. If this resonates with you, it might be something to contemplate. The new year is nearly upon us — an excellent time to create a whole new you.
Continuing with this theme, the sextant and compass in the image, both navigational tools, might be advising you to create a map of where you want to go and how you will get there. Don’t simply create a list of resolutions that you wish to do and then toss the list aside. Instead, hold yourself accountable. Create a map and add deadlines to your calendar as well as to your do to list. Set constant reminders to keep you on track. Use technology (electronic calendars, project management tools, reminder applications, etc.) to help you navigate your own map to success. You might also want to pair this with creative visualization techniques. Many folks swear by this method: visualize clearly in your mind (maybe during a meditation session), what it is you want to receive/accomplish on a regular basis. This may help you to integrate your goals in your consciousness and may even generate some new ideas.
So today, spend some time mapping out the future you want and create a plan on how you will get there. Then, using the tools as your disposal, hold yourself accountable to meeting deadlines – dates by which you will accomplish a set of goals or stages of a project. An example might be to set a date when you will have the first draft of an e-book finished or a new song written. Setting obtainable tasks on a timetable will prevent you from allowing your goals to fall to the wayside.
