Today’s deck is the Victorian Art Tarot, given to me by my wonderful friend Elissa years ago.
Today’s cards are
7 of Wands
3 of Swords (R)
10 of Wands (R)
I typically see the 7 of wands as a card about being sneaky, but in this case, I think it means “behind the scenes”. When I moved to Burlington in December, the issue was that I had nowhere to read tarot, had no clients, and for a period of time, no website. I’ve been on the fence. Do I continue to market in London even though I won’t be here soon? Do I start advertising in Hamilton even though I can’t do readings there yet? Then I start asking myself what the point is, get discouraged, and go watch Netflix. Since I have 6 weeks before I move again, now is the time to get the behind the scenes stuff in place for summer, start booking summer festivals, summer parties etc.
Now is also a time of healing. I’ve been through a lot in the past year and it’s not over. As I’m working behind the scenes in my business, I also need to be doing behind the scenes in my life, to dig deep and be ready for the next wave of upheaval.
I need to not take my burdens with me to a new city. This isn’t just about a new physical location, because if I take the same person to a new physical location, I’ll get the same results. This is the time to start getting new habits in place, so I am ready to rock once I unpack. I have unburdened myself of most of my physical belongings. I went from a 4 bedroom house, now going to a one bedroom apartment. That’s hard. But what has remained has made me freer.
So far this challenge, I haven’t pulled a single major arcana. This means that the stuff I am doing is the little stuff. The getting my ducks in a row stuff. The big stuff is on it’s way.
