What You Already Know.


The Tarot is good at confirming what your already know. It’s also goods at telling you what you don’t want to hear, or acknowledge.

This is my first post with Tarot Taxi, so, please allow me to introduced myself. My name is Louise and I am the lady behind the Priestess Tarot website. Every month I help run a meet up in my local area and as part of evening, we play a Tarot game and through that, draw 3 cards.

This last month, the Tarot told me what I a) already knew and b) what I didn’t want to acknowledge and c) what to do about it. Everyone thinks you “get rich quick” being your own boss. Everyone will come to you for a reading, won’t they? Well, no and no. It’s hard work building up a business, a good & honest reputation. It takes time and effort, all the while the cash may or may not be flowing in. In my case, not as readily as I’d like, but I do okay. However, like most folk, the money goes to paying bills, something for the kids to do with school or something they need, or straight into the back account. Very little of it gets put to my own use. However, this is what the Tarot advised. I pulled the cards from the Buckland Romani deck app, produced by Fools Dog.

imageThe Issue: Nine of Bolers: I’m comfortably well off, I need to remember to be happy as I am, where I am. This image shows an older lady. Is she happy with her lot? Well, are we ever, these days? We always want more. New phone, new this, new that. Do we really need it? The issue I feel, is that I’m not counting my blessings and being happy in general. Bolers are wheels, which look like coins, so think money, job, house, finances in general.

Being a cocky person with less money than sense isn’t a wise idea. So, lets be avoiding those impulse buys.  Yes, those shoes do look good, but do you really need another pair to match what you already have? That bag looks great! But couldn’t you use that money for something else? Something more necessary?

wpid-wp-1400792102682.jpegAction to Take: Four of Bolers. I’ve come to trade, here’s what I have. Take it or leave it, but I’m not here to pander to whims and don’t be wasting my time. Here, this man is being honest and up front. He’s comfortable with what he has to sell and the price he’s selling at. There’s little (or no) room for negotiation. What’s his is his, end of. There’s no “well, maybe” with this guy.  If you don’t buy these wheels, he’ll still have to them to sell at the same price later on.

The basic advise I gleamed here, is keep what money you have, don’t squander it, don’t splash out with it, don’t fritter it away. What’s yours is yours to keep, until you decide to sell it, but don’t let another take it from you below cost.

Don’t you just love it when the Tarot is literal, full of advice and really, tells it to you like it is? Sometimes, we readers don’t want to hear the message the Tarot has. If you don’t want to know the answer, don’t ask the question. I’m glad life can be that simple!

I’d love to have some comments in reply, so go ahead. I’m a big chatter box, really!
