Tarot for Creatives July 17th to 23rd 2023

Hello, Creatives!

It’s all about change for this week’s Tarot for Creatives. With today a New Moon, we’re in a phase of reboot and setting fresh intentions, so I’m working with the What You Can Change, What You Can’t Change, What You Can’t See spread

The Star, The Devil, 4 of Pentacles. Deck: Tarot de Carlotydes

The Star brings a message of hope. Whatever trials you’ve faced, they’ve come to an end and it’s now time to rebuild. With belief and positivity the keywords of this card, it’s a sign to change your mindset and believe that the Universe has your back. Push ahead with your projects and plans. Don’t give up.

As a ‘wish’ card, The Star also carries a message of wishes granted, so if you’ve been hoping for something, the signs are positive you’ll get it! Overall, the Star tells us to embrace belief and know that everything’s going to be alright.

“Nothing happens until you decide.” - Oprah Winfrey

The Devil indicates feeling trapped. Poor choices or behaviour have led to less than favourable circumstances. In the What Can’t Be Changed position, the Devil suggests this situation won’t go away anytime soon, not unless personal responsibility is taken, and even then, it may take time to evolve. Hope is on the horizon, however. With the Sun’s influence, the shift will come, but it demands your input. Step up and make the necessary changes. Until you do, you’ll remain stuck.

With these cards bringing opposite messages, it’s a warning to reflect on where there’s imbalance between mindset and behaviour. It’s as if thoughts are positive, but actions are negative. Consider where the imbalance lies and make the necessary adjustments. The Star does bring hope, but shaking off the Devil demands personal action.

You're not quite THIS rich, but finances are looking solid!

What You Can’t See is the financial stability of the 4 of Pentacles. If you’ve been lying awake fretting about finances, this card says you’re better off than you think. There’s a fine balance with the 4 of Pentacles. It’s a card that says you’re stable, but only because you’re spending or investing wisely. A splurge may knock that balance out, but on the same hand, tightening the purse strings may rob you of a potential investment opportunity. This could reflect in something like advertising or marketing, where you can afford to spend a little, but not a lot. Even spending that little may bring a greater return than you’d envisaged. So the message here is to carry on with careful spending. With the Devil at its rear, finances may be tied up in something else right now, and you have no option but to wait. If that’s the case, hang on. The Star brings brighter days, so for now, know finances are steady, and soon you’ll be in a stronger position.

A curious mix of cards this week with the contrast of the Sun and the Devil. Overall, the outlook is positive, but with the pesky Devil in there, we will have to face up to something we’ve been avoiding in order to progress. Have a wonderful week, creative souls!
