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 Hierophant can be interpreted as referring to established conventions, possibly using out-dated methods blind to new opportunities. While the solid structures of the past can be reassuring in their own way, this does not convey a sense of dynamic energy or the promise of rapid progress.
Be aware of the constraints imposed by over-structured processes and routines. There is a risk of 'losing the reason in the ritual' if automatically following rules rather than constantly seeking the truth about situations then acting on fresh insights.
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 Magician is a mysterious figure, both possessed of many skills and much knowledge, yet also a master of illusion.
The emotional state most obviously associated with The Magician is confidence. He is aware of his many and varied competences and is adaptable enough to deploy the most appropriate skill when each opportunity arises.
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 Empress signifies a welcome outcome.
She represents fruitful creativity, prosperity, harmony and comfort. She also enjoys high status and a respected social position. Abundance is further supplied in the form of beautiful surroundings that grow and mature with the seasons, never dull or deficient.
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.
