This week’s collective Tarot reading will be done a little bit differently. These three cards from the Wild Unknown Tarot deck lent themselves to a neat narrative that I’d be remiss to not share. Let’s go.
This week, you’ll feel the push and pull between surrender and control.
Those who pride themselves on always steering life the way they like it may get a little uncomfortable. The Wheel of Fortune (left) represents the changing of seasons – what goes up has to come down and vice versa. If things have been rosy for a while, expect a little shakeup. But if you’ve been experiencing a lull in any area that you’ve been wanting to improve, this week may prove to be a turning point. Observe and go with the flow.
And whilst we surrender to the ebb and flow of Universe’s plans, The Emperor (middle) insists we stay grounded, disciplined and always looking towards the light. When success and windfall land, maintain a sensible head; if challenges (or challengers) come in view, take ownership of your boundaries and stand firm in your beliefs.
The Son of Pentacles (right) is almost like a soft echo to The Emperor. While the latter displays mastery and leadership, the former is a cautious shadow. The Son of Pentacles calculates and strategises; he moves slowly and carefully; he’s that down-to-earth boy-next-door everyone should have as a best friend. His weakest trait is inflexibility and reluctance to take risks.
Now the question is, when the Wheel of Fortune turns in (or against) your favour, will you be the emperor and respond decisively or will you be tentative like the Son of Pentacles, preferring to take your time to weigh the pros and cons?
With The Emperor right smack in the middle, the Tarot invites you to seek out a leadership mentor this week. Look to him/her/they for inspiration and the experience that you may lack at the moment to navigate life’s curveballs and magic.
