Interpretation of this Finances Tarot Spread:
Card 1 : Impressions at the outset
This card offers insight into the present situation.
The Devil screams 'self-imposed limitations'! Perhaps the choices available now have been reduced due to bad decisions in the past. Financial options might have been adversely affected by addictions such as gambling, overindulgence in expensive extravagances, vanity, or obstinate refusals to compromise or decline unfavourable deals or situations.
All is not lost. The point of power is always in the present moment. Mental strength might be required. Perhaps it is time to honestly review habits and priorities, turn away from any unhealthy attachments and place resources such as time, money and affections wisely.
Card 2 : Influences on plans and decisions
Opportunities and/or constraints (real or imagined) can affect progress in various ways.
The Tower can represent catastrophe; not a good omen for financial success. Thankfully it is rarely that simple.
The opportunity indicated here is that of considering the sustainability of the current plan or project before potential cracks start to show. When too much is expected of a person, structure or plan there might be risk of overload, 'burnout' or some other catastropic failure. When projects are reviewed in a responsible timely manner weaknesses can be handled safely. Useless structures might require demolition but no losses or injuries need result. If sudden change is unavoidable there might be a challenging time of upheaval in store before moving forward smoothly again.
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 Chariot indicates balanced control. Willpower is well-channeled, not wasted in scattered directions.
This emotional centeredness skillfully avoids the twin pitfalls of the temptation to risk too much in hope of gains by luck and the excessive fear that returns too little due to insufficient willingness to participate in any uncertainty.
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 Moon involves the pull or tension of opposing forces. It also conveys warning of the possibility of deceit, confusion and self-deception.
The fluctuations and uncertainty associated with The Moon can be interpreted in terms of the variability of financial markets. Some stocks rise while others fall. Sometimes decisions are made based on instinct rather than using explicit logical reasoning with full access to all the relevant facts and data. Although creative endeavours may fare well, specific material outcomes cannot be guaranteed.
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.
