Tarot for the Week 5/16 to 5/22

This week's tarot for the week read is being done with a deck that I have wanted for a long time and was finally able to get a copy of. And for you tarot people you're going to laugh when I tell you what deck it  The Hanson-Roberts Tarot.  Yes, it's been a deck I've wanted for years and I've never been able to get a hold of a copy for one reason or another.  For a long time it was because I couldn't find a copy in a shop or anything and then I tried to order it, twice, from Amazon and both times in the process of waiting for the deck to come I end up getting an email saying that the deck is out of stock.  Finally I was able to get a copy last week and I have to say, this is my new favorite travel deck.  It's the perfect size to take along in a purse to have a deck at all times and it's such a great RWS clone.  So I wanted to use this deck for our reading for this week. 

Cards pulled for this week:
The Chariot
Ace of Rods

The Chariot is a great card to start the week out.  Things are going to begin with a feeling of movement and sense that it's time to bring some change about.  No matter what you need to get done this week, whether it's a work related project or a personal thing at home, you need to focus on a few specific things to make sure that the movement stays in motion and that you don't lose your drive after a few days.  First, don't look back.  Accept that this is a new day and a new beginning.  Second, be on the look out for ways that you can create and use balance in your endeavors this week.  This could be balancing your work and ideas with other people around you or it could be balancing work and play.   But as the week is starting and you're feeling the charge to bust through and move ahead look for ways to hang on to that.

Mid-week when the card of Temperance comes into place we start to see balance again become a factor but we also see that the balance here is between emotions and the physical world.  It's likely that the things you'll find yourself working on this week will be creative projects that have an emotional connection for you. Even in the workplace you might find that there is an emotional attachment for you this week to your job.  Maybe you're trying to extra well this week in hopes of some special recognition or a raise or promotion.  Your intentions are pure and you're on the right track with what you're doing and you can be sure to see some real positive results and victory down the road, just keep working at it.

When week end comes around you're still going to be feeling this creative power and you'll be ready to take on something else.  Whatever you're doing this week is likely to give way to some other powerful ideas for creative work or projects for the next part of your journey.  Be sure to keep a journal or notebook nearby this weekend because flashes of insight and creative ideas will come at odd times to be ready to catch them.

This week, overall, is going to be a really great and productive one if you're willing to take charge. That's the real thing that The Chariot is saying; grab hold and go for the ride but have the hutzpa to direct where you're heading.  Some people just want to see it all happen for them or fall in their lap and things don't work that way.  You need to be willing to have an active role in your future if you want to see things manifest in the way you want.

Hope that gives you all some direction for the week and that you have a great one!
