1. Card to reflect on!

Take a moment, close your eyes. Reflect here.

What is really bothering you?

What is the worst case scenario?

Whats the best case scenario?

For my own reading I drew

1. 2 of Cups

2. King of coins

3. The Emperor

4. The Fool

Doing this reading, I feel like my cards called me out, and sort of showed me what I already know.

My interpretations:

1. Reflecting on the Two of Cups is interesting because it is the partnership card. I was reflecting yesterday that the Quarantine ( the order from the Governor of NM to stay home because of Covid-19), that this isolation wasn't as bad because I at least get to be with my BF. And that while this is hard and our lives are disrupted, but there are a lot of things I have I am fortunate to have. A roof over my head. A happy cat. Food in my belly and fridge. It sorta is nice to reset your priorities. What is really important? What really matters?

2. The Challenge Card I drew from the deck is the King of Coins. Interesting because this is the Wealth Card. This card often represents material wealth, financial abundance, and worldly success. The Coin King is a faithful provider. He uses his ambition and confidence to create wealth for himself and others and generates his self-worth from what he has accumulated and can share with others. He is also a fatherly figure who provides others with advice, guidance and wisdom, especially in financial and work-related matters. I have been laid off from my full time job ( Personal Training) because the gym is closed in order to prevent the spread of this virus. And I don't have income coming in. And that is really scaring me. The problem definitely seems to be seriously financial at least for me. I feel a sense of loss because I don't feel like I have my normal confidence and I feel small and unhelpful.

3. The card I pulled is the Emperor. I literally laughed out loud when I flipped over this card because when I drew this card I put my BF on it because he is the embodiment of Aries. Aries are leaders, self-starters, they get things going. I feel a little called out by my cards. Thankfully my BF still has his job and is able to work from home. And since he literally designs online training materials, he is busier than ever. So of course I pull this as the solution! This card is suggestive of stability and security in life. It suggests that you will come out on top of things and everything is under your control. It is your hard work, discipline and self control that have bought you this far, you can weather the storm. It means that you are in charge of your life now setting up your own rules and boundaries. The Emperor in a career context indicates that your hard work will be noticed and you will reap the rewards of status and success.

4. The future card I drew was the fool. Which seems super fitting. Usually the Fool represents a new beginning and, consequently, an end to something in your old life. Which seems super fitting right now. I do feel like these turbulent times have changed me. I feel more patient and more resourceful. I always view the fool as a good omen, because its basically coming from a point of positive unknowingness. We never know what may happen but we can be positive.

Will you do this reading and let me know in the comments what you drew and what it means for you? Do your cards call you out too?
