Interpretation of this Finances Tarot Spread:
Card 1 : Impressions at the outset
This card offers insight into the present situation.
The Tower often refers to a shocking disruptive event, a 'bolt from the blue', a totally unexpected revelation. In financial terms that could be a seemingly secure substanial asset suddenly becoming worthless perhaps due to an accident combined with insurance not having been renewed or due to dishonesty on the part of others involved with the project. Maybe in hindsight some indications were present but overlooked. An unexpected total loss inevitably means having to start again from scratch as many people have done - sometimes at extremely inconvenient times and/or in unfavourable situations and locations.
If today's situation is not as bad as The Tower might imply this card might have appeared to invoke gratitude at the outset. If your position now is not one of total loss then you are blessed with some advantages and can go forward rejoicing in that good fortune whatever challenges might appear along the way.
Card 2 : Influences on plans and decisions
Opportunities and/or constraints (real or imagined) can affect progress in various ways.
The Lovers indicate a crucial decision to be made, a choice about which path to take. When an important decision cannot be postponed but must be made imminently or immediately, 'opportunity' has been forced upon us. There might not be any possibility of revisiting that particular fork in the road.
In terms of finances this might refer to business partnerships or alliances. Decisions about which bank or other financial institution to invest in or with or to borrow from might involve an upfront cost or a long-term commitment. The outcome of such a decision might not be known for some time, if at all - especially if eventually proceeding with only one option without knowing how others might have performed. Consider all the information available, preferably together with the input of an experienced and trusted advisor.
Card 3 : Emotions
Decision makers' states of mind affect choices made, hence eventual outcomes. To the extent that a person's actions contribute to his or her financial future, that person's emotional hopes, fears and expectations might have played a part.
The Sun is a joyful indication of triumphant success. Ambition is present in abundance; empowerment and confidence border on the possibility of over-confidence. This is however, reassuringly accompanied with clear rational decision making as well as the power of positive expectation.
This is an excellent mindset from which to achieve outstanding results.
Card 4 : Looking forward ...
Fortunes rise and fall. When considering indications into the future keep in mind the time frame you chose before beginning this reading.
The Hierophant signifies a steady solid outcome rather than an outlandish or frivolous form of success. Protection is assured while tradition is also respected and maintained.
If looking just this far ahead there is no indication of disaster, yet no exhuberant joy either. Success is measured, restrained, respectable.
Remember that while the tarot can provide interesting insights, ideas and 'food for thought', it cannot predict or control your future. The point of power is always in the present moment. The wise may be optimistic, but not complacent. If at any time the way ahead does not look favourable you always have the possibility to make changes beginning with thoughts, attitudes, and emotions.
