Interpretation of this Finances Tarot Spread:
Card 1 : Impressions at the outset
This card offers insight into the present situation.
The Magician indicates the significance of self-discipline, skills mastered and confidence in one's own knowledge and ability to use appropriate equipment, perhaps including modern technology. Income earned through ones own training and expertise might form the basis from which to develop a financial plan or finance a project.
This card suggests the possibility of being the master of ones own destiny through ones own efforts, skills and expertise. It therefore invites consideration of the extent to which the querent has taken (or is taking) control of his or her financial destiny using the personal resources he or she has developed so far. If you have skills that you are not using perhaps it is time to consider putting them to work for your long term financial benefit.
Card 2 : Influences on plans and decisions
Opportunities and/or constraints (real or imagined) can affect progress in various ways.
Judgement is a call to arise* and wake up to new opportunities. It is a card of renewal indicating a form of rebirth after having grown out of old ways of seeing the world and graduated (a rite of passage is another concept associated with Judgement) into improved circumstances.
The influences surrounding this situation are powerfully positive. There is a sense of unconstrained possibility having just completed a transformation from outdated habits into a clearer understanding of all things.
*Some tarot decks depict figures rising from open coffins in representation of 'the last day' or, as some decks entitle this card, 'The Last Judgement'.
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.
Justice is not rash or frivolous, but wise. Emotions are held in check. Clear decisions are made based on the facts and rules of engagement. A fair outcome can be expected.
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 Chariot signifies balance. The various challenges this project has faced over time might have involved many obstacles, distractions and temptations. Movement forward, always in a state of centered balance has carried the day. The bicycle shown here, a popular mode of transport around the City of Oxford is only in a state of upright balance when ridden steadily forward by a person whose position is steady and centered.
Triumph is possible when conflicting forces are overcome by self-discipline and willpower.
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.
