I wanted to do a quick reading to get some extra input on my new website project. I used the Rainbow Spread (from the book, Power Tarot) as it seemed appropriate, since the rainbow from yesterday's Ten of Cups card really stood out to me.
1. Rain: What is holding you back from attaining your heart's desire
2. Drizzle: First steps you can take toward achieving what you want
3. Clearing: Who or what helps you
4. Sunshine: Best you can hope for
5. Rainbow: Short-term advice
6. Pot of gold: Long-term outcome
1. Rain: The Magician
What is holding me back from attaining my heart's desire:
Myself! Nothing impedes my success outside of my own abilities and beliefs. I need only use my knowledge, skills and power of manifestation to make this happen. I don't have to worry about outside obstacles, I just need to get my own butt in gear.
2. Drizzle: Two of Cups
First steps I can take toward achieving what I want:
I need to make a stronger connection with my project. When I saw this card, I immediately felt a "click". That feeling you get when you snap something into place, and it sticks there for good. I need to make that distinct click with my idea, which I haven't done yet.
3. Clearing: Two of Pentacles
Who or what helps me:
My ability to juggle multiple projects will be a benefit to me. Also, walking on precarious ground isn't new to me, and I'm not afraid of going out on a limb and taking risks.
4. Sunshine: Nine of Pentacles
Best I can hope for:
Well, now that's just about the most perfect card for this position! Independent, financial success and the confidence that comes with having achieved a great goal on my own.
5. Rainbow: Eight of Swords
I need to become more aware, alert, empowered and pro-active. Release myself from the self-imposed restrictions and limitations and just go for it! (This was also one of my daily draw cards today and last week as well, so it's a message I'm apparently meant to hear loud and clear.)
6. Pot of gold: Six of Swords
A physical and/or spiritual solo journey to greener pastures. I somehow have the feeling it will be both. This project will bring me to new places, whether emotionally, spiritually or physically (or all of the above). I may feel uncomfortable or apprehensive about leaving my comfort zone, but ultimately it will lead me to a better place and an improved situation.
This was an encouraging reading and has given me helpful insight into what is needed at this stage of my project.
