Interpretation of this Finances Tarot Spread:
Card 1 : Impressions at the outset
This card offers insight into the present situation.
The Emperor is a powerful figure. A strong desire for status, and control together with the drive and intention to be respected by others may well have played a part in building up the wealth or income. The querent might be able to lean on a person of wealth and influence who has created a valuable assest such as a business through years of heard work. The most obvious possibility is that he or she has done so him or herself, establishing a strong financial position as a result. Alternatively, the powerful rational person indicated might be a mentor or trusted expert to whom one might turn for advice.
How might you use rational logical thought processes to better understand and then improve your situation ? The extent to which you are respected, well connected and well organized might also be helpful perhaps to secure a new position, a rise or an important business deal.

Card 2 : Influences on plans and decisions
Opportunities and/or constraints (real or imagined) can affect progress in various ways.
The Sun sends out bright rays of contentment illuminating achievements completed and new opportunities alike. The situation is supported by positive influences and high expectations untainted by pressure or fear of judgement.
Opportunities abound. No one type of activity stands out as more likely or promising than others. This card has been associated with success in many fields including academia, sciences, inventions and various forms and levels of leadership. Go forward with joy and confidence.
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 Devil warns of pessimism and frustration, emotions that can result from self-imposed limitations.
Beware of the potential costs of stubborn refusal to move on from a bad situation. Inappropriate fears and feelings of guilt or of being insufficient or constrained can also hold back progress, joy and positive outcomes. A more positive or balanced attitude is called for.
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 Hanged Man signifies patient originality. Suspended in time and space, he has chosen to experience a different point of view with an open mind as to the consequences.
Expect a rich outcome, abundant in personal meaning if not necessarily in great material wealth. The nature of the new perspective is unclear but its sincerity is without doubt: To thine own self be true.
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.
