Tarot for the week ahead

Cards from the Crowley/Harris Thoth tarot

I had to think about this one for a while. Sometimes the message is instant, obvious: sometimes it takes some reading, some musing to bring it into the light.

Partly, if I’m honest, it was a surprise (by no means unwelcome!) to see such a positive set of cards towards the tail end of a year like this one. Here’s the thing, though. After chewing it over I feel this reading is less about the physical and material than it is about the mental. The Sun (nice little appearance as we creep closer to the Solstice) and the Ten of Disks (aka Pentacles or Coins) both speak of hope, of goodness – of enoughness, in fact.

The Knight (aka King) of Wands is the embodiment of fire energy, blazing there next to the Sun. Tonight I picked up Mary Greer’s volume on the court cards to see what jumped out at me about him, and it was this, under ‘advice’: present yourself boldly and courageously. Expect to be obeyed*.

There it is. This week, practice your attitude (with a small a!). What if you bore yourself with confidence, even when you might not be feeling it? What if you believed that you could get what you want? What if you trusted that flame inside you to light your way? What if… it worked?

Have a good week and stay safe x
