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 37: What can I do to bring more financial abundance into my life?
8 of Wands
Today’s card is about speed and moving forward. It’s definitely time to take some action toward your goal. This is especially important if you feel that things have reached a snag or if we are feeling frustrated. Once you start procrastinating and putting things off, you lose your momentum and ultimately, interest in the project. This card is about focus and acceleration – about gathering your energies, pulling all the different parts of your project together and proceeding forward. If you have spent too much time in the planning stages, it is time to put on the finishing touches and get that project out in the world.
The 8 of Wands card can also suggest communication – especially with a lot of people. This card makes me think of social networking, which is an excellent way of getting the word out about your work. Think about joining some social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Google+ and posting regularly to these sites. Now of course, it’s important not to use these sites solely as marketing venues, but rather as a way to connect with others. That is what networking is all about – forging new relationships. The goal today is to get yourself out there as much as possible for the more people that know about you, the better chance you have of gaining future clients and customers. Are there e-mails you’ve been meaning to send? Phone calls you’ve been meaning to make? Marketing messages you want to get out into the world? Today’s the day to do it.
This card is often associated with publishing so maybe creating your own e-book publishing house might be a fun business to pursue. You could also create e-books to publish on your own Website or on Amazon for folks to purchase – perhaps teaching a skill that you are good at. Publishing could also include Web sites so perhaps consider learning Web Design, Database creation/management or SEO (Search Engine Optimization). There is plenty of money to be made in the Web Design fields.
As Wands are a suit of taking action, I definitely see a theme of keeping moving, which of course, makes sense when considering the topic of this experiment. One typically cannot bring extra financial abundance into one’s life without getting off of the couch! The 8 of Wands is especially a card about rapid movement and forward motion. Once you have found your direction and purpose, this card calls for you to forge ahead and not to lose your momentum.
You may wish to consider implementing new procedures to ensure that you continue forward movement, such as signing up for an online ToDo service (Remember the Milk), turning off the Internet on your computer for specified periods of time each day and checking email only a couple of times a day. While gazing at this card this morning however, another thought popped into my head (a theme we looked at just yesterday): multiple streams of income. You might want to begin working on different sources of income – including some passive income projects – so that you are not dependent on only one or two main sources. I feel this is especially important in an uncertain economy. The 8 of Wands urges us to send several potential money making projects “out into the world” with purposeful intention and direction.
So today, spend a bit of time brainstorming on possible additional streams of income. Continue the momentum that you have established thus far, contacting any clients if necessary as well as adhering to you work schedule.
How about you? How are you coming along with YOUR experiment?
