Deck: The Wizards 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 7: What can I do to bring more financial abundance into my life?
First thing I thought of when I saw this card was, “Typical Monday.” The second thought was “Oh no, not YOU again!”
The Tower is probably one of the most unwelcome cards to appear in a reading as if often suggests an abrupt (and usually unwelcome) change. When this change occurs, it rips at the foundations of our lives – at those aspects that we think are secure, safe and stable. In this case – as an advice reading – I see the Tower card as telling us that it is time to examine ourself and our situation to determine what changes are necessary. These are not to be little changes but rather a major, fundamental shift – to the point of rebuilding a completely new foundation. Oftentimes, if we refuse to make these changes ourself, the Universe will make them for us – and thus, the Tower experience.
This card is especially relevant to me because I have just gone through a “Tower” sort of year, involving a couple of surgeries and broken bones. So I know how much the Tower experience can shake a person up.
Now as today’s reading is about the next step to take in bringing in financial abundance, The Tower card is telling us that perhaps we need to change the way we operate – that old ways and perhaps even old ideas & beliefs are no longer serving us. It suggests that the foundation that currently “holds us up” no longer works and we need a new way of doing things – possibly new attitudes and beliefs as well.
We mentioned that The Tower card often points to sudden, drastic change. In this case, The Tower card may be advising us to initiate that sudden, drastic change ourselves. There are times when it is best to scrap a project and start over – or perhaps pull completely apart and rebuild it, but differently this time. We may need to take a close look at our processes and see what may not be working in our favor. Just as the structure in the card is toppling, we may need to dismantle our own structure and create a new, more steady one.
This idea does not only pertain to the realm of the physical but also to our attitudes and beliefs. Maybe our “old” way of doing things is not the best way. Or perhaps it’s time to bring in some fresh, new ideas. This could even be as serious as questioning the manner in which you earn a living. You might want to ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you happy doing what you are doing? Is it lucrative enough?
- Have you always wanted to start your own business/work for yourself but were afraid to venture out?
- Times are rapidly changing these days, especially in the corporate world and more and more folks are branching out on their own.
- Is this something you are called to do as well? If so, perhaps your current way of making a living needs to be replaced with something that will bring you more happiness – as possibly more financial abundance as well.
On a personal note, each step I’ve taken during this experiment thus far has brought me to this point. This morning, I was actually thinking about setting a set daily schedule for myself, something I have not done up to this point. The Tower card confirms this for me — my foundation right is still a bit shaky as I am just getting back on my feet. I realize that there will be a lot of “picking up the pieces” in the days to come and a daily schedule could add some extra stability to the rebuilding process.
I was also reading a finance book last night and was reading about the importance of an emergency fund. Having some extra cash in the bank when disaster hits could greatly soften the blow that The Tower brings when it comes to visit. My emergency fund certainly helped during my Tower year.
At the very least, it simply may call for a drastic change of attitude which can often lead to changes in the physical world. Today might be a good day to examine the structures and attitudes in your life to determine whether any changes are necessary. How about putting together a daily schedule and/or list of goals you want to accomplish – anything else that will put you on firmer, more stable ground.
