I’m trying a new thing where I draw tarot cards at the end of every month to reflect what occurred during that month and what lessons to pick up. Similarly, I’ll draw cards to forecast what the following month’s focus should be.
Surprise cards: While I was shuffling the deck for March, the Devil and the Strength cards fell out, both reversed. Respectively, they represent an act of release or absence of materialism, and impatience or cowardice. I’m guessing this is again my cards’ way of setting the theme for my reading for me, just like they did last month.
What happened in March: Page of Cups, reversed. This represents emotional naivete. I went to see a feng shui expert last month and was told not to let my emotions carry me away from my goals and systems. I guess this card is trying to say that I almost let that happen several times in March.
Why it happened: Ten of Cups, reversed. This represents discontentment with where my current situation is headed. That’s kind of self-explanatory in answer to why what happened, happened.
Lessons to learn: Eight of wands, upright. This represents movement. What I need to pick up from March is to keep moving towards my goals, and to just keep moving forward even when my emotions are trying to convince me to slow down.
What’s going to happen in April: Temperance, upright. This represents balance and moderation. April’s looking to be a month of getting things done, and this card is warning me to do everything in moderation. Don’t spread myself too thinly, so to speak.
Why it’s going to happen: Two of Pentacles, upright. This represents balance and prioritization. Same thing, for emphasis. I need to set my priorities in order and take everything in moderation.
Things to look out for: Death, reversed. This represents a lack of transition or change. Or staying. So I’m not expecting a lot of major changes to occur in April; it’ll be a time to slow down and reflect on where my energy is going and what my priorities are.
How’s April looking for you?
