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 2: What can I do to bring more financial abundance into my life?
In this card, the professor of astral travel at Mandrake Academy (an school for young Witches and Wizards) flies on her broom over Egypt. Being nighttime, the first thing that popped into my head when looking at this card was a graveyard shift job. Do you like to work third shift? Do you do your best work at night? This might be a call to think about your schedule and make a change. Some people (especially many writer friends of mine) do their best work during the wee hours.
The broomstick in this image suggests forward movement and momentum – moving forward, no matter what the obstacles. To me, this is the card of the warrior archetype; of going out and conquering. It is a reminder to stay on our chosen path and not to lose focus of our goals. It also might be a gentle reminder that it is impossible to change your financial situation unless you take some sort of action. Yesterday, we talked about taking classes and developing new skills. Unless you actually sign up for those classes and workshops, your dream will remain just that: only dreams and nothing more. So see this card as a call to action.
The young woman in the card is in the driver’s seat so to speak and is in charge of her journey. Of course, broomstick flying is not learned overnight – a reminder that victory and success are usually only achieved after hard work, self-control and application. Focus may be the key word here.
The new moon in the sky represents new beginnings and new opportunities so this might be an excellent time to start the project you’ve been putting off or start writing up your ebook or novel ideas. The woman in this image is also traveling. Some possible ideas here include: becoming a travel writer, travel photographer or perhaps even creating an ethnic-themed cookbook. Some people enjoy giving tours of the cities (being a tour guide) – a great way to bring in some extra cash. I have a friend who made a great deal of money every summer by taking folks on week-long canoe trips in the wilderness. How about writing a travel book, recounting your adventures from an interesting trip you took? Or perhaps writing a fantasy novel featuring a young witch who travels the world?
The Chariot is all about taking action, moving forward and getting things done. So today, it’s time to put the thinking, planning and dreaming away and take the first step toward your dreams, even if it’s a little bit each day. Remember the old adage: How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.”
Possible occupations for the Chariot: Driver, guide, tour guide, travel writer/photographer, taxi or limousine driver, cowboy, leader, life coach, sports coach, cartographer, mover, travel assistant, travel companion, language translator, car salesman, graveyard shift worker
