You may recall my February outlook spread I did at the beginning of February.
This is what I received and my interpretation at the time:
Pail: Time to get out of a situation – I don’t really know what this is about. I have a few things that may or may not happen in the near future. This includes the possibility of reading at a festival, also the possibility of reading at the local markets, and fingers crossed I may be teaching yoga in the near future – but none of these is set in stone and it could be that nothing will materialise. I am also involved in trying to get the local community garden started, as well as setting up an astrology group. Too many fingers in too many pies, it seems. I think this is advice for me not to overload myself. I may have to voluntarily pull out of some of these activities. Oh, also looking at doing a yoga course in New Zealand in March. The Hanged Man must be levitating in flight.
Carrot: Opportunity or windfall – this is probably connected to one of the many activities listed above. It definitely looks promising, whichever one eventuates.
Cracked Cup – Dissatisfaction with life – hmmmm. It happens, I think this is a particular aspect of my life relating to work. At least that’s what I think, as I don’t see it being anything else. I certainly hope I won’t be cracking any of my fine china cups
Coins: Money will be coming to you – excellent. Enough said.
Looking back over the past month, the Pail card referred to me dropping out of the local organic community garden. As it is, some of the key people involved have moved away, or are looking at moving away, and there isn’t enough support at present. As someone succinctly put it, it seems the mainstream populace idea of sustainability involves changing to an energy-saving lightbulb and not much beyond this. That the local tomatoes are laden with pesticides, not to mention tasteless (but hey, they are all so uniform and clean) does not seem to be of concern. Ditto for the meat injected with hormones, and so on. I’m content to tend to my own garden and the chickens and support the local farmers market. I think if it wouldn’t be for the amount of work required to get the community gardens up and running, I would have kept supporting this, but one needs more than two people to form a community garden.
The Carrot card was confirmation that I have been accepted to read cards at the WinterMoon festival, as well as starting to teach astrology from next week. This also ties in with the Coins card, though I cannot say that teaching astrology will bring in a substantial amount – I think I may have undercharged for this, but for me, I am just happy to explore this subject. I don’t even see this as work – for as someone once said, if you love what you do, it doesn’t feel like work.
The Cracked Cup related to a couple of days of being in a funk – the sort of days when instead of counting your blessings, you look for cracks everywhere I am blessed to have a partner who has a really healthy view on life, extremely grounded and balanced. He says it’s because of his work as a Fireman, seeing people whose lives are destroyed in seconds, but I think it’s as much a matter of personality as it is of life experience. In any case, my mantra for March shall be, “Don’t sweat the small stuff”.
