Tarot for Creatives June 10th to 16th 2024

Hello, Creatives!

Welcome back after a short break for the bank holiday weekend. I spent the weekend in the kingdom of Kerry here in Ireland, and had a fabulous time. I stayed with a friend who lives in a beautiful remote location and the solitude was medicine for my soul. It was hard to come back to reality and people!

A quick heads-up that the Tarot for Creatives forecast (and newsletter) is likely to be sporadic for the rest of this month as I have travel plans which may or may not be scuppered by surgery I’ve been waiting on for almost two years. (The Irish health system is an unmitigated disaster. . . ) So, whether it’s travel or surgery, there may be a gap of two weeks without a forecast or newsletter. Unfortunately, as I write, I still don’t know whether I’ll be boarding a plane or an operating table . . .

Anyhow, on to this week’s Tarot for Creatives reading! Right now we’re in the waxing crescent phase of the moon, an energy that keeps us buzzing about like busy bees. This is a great time for manifesting and taking affirmative action on creative projects, so I’m asking the following of the cards: What’s working, What have I not considered, Throw me a curveball!

It’s all Pentacles this week, so a grounded, earthy energy, one focused on business matters, money, and the other material aspects of our life—a lovely synchronicity for the waxing moon! In terms of creativity, Pentacles indicate focus, money matters, and a more practical, logical approach to our projects.

We open with the 7 of Pentacles. What’s working right now is the care and attention being poured into a project. You may already be able to see the results of your efforts, but if not, rest assured that energy is building in the right direction for you. This almost single-minded focus is of great benefit at this time. Often, our minds flit from project to project, much like a bee seeking the sweetest pollen, but with the 7 of Pentacles, the importance of sticking to one project and pouring all our love into it will pay dividends. If you are juggling numerous projects, the focus may be on a more micro level, where you’re focusing on one task at a time and finding this working well.

“It’s not how much we have, but how much we enjoy that makes happiness!” - Charles Spurgeon

The 9 of Pentacles is a reminder to lift our heads, acknowledge achievements, and take a moment to spoil ourselves! When did you last treat yourself, or indulge in a little luxury? Spoiling yourself doesn’t necessarily mean shelling out hard earned cash, but simply enjoying a day or afternoon of free time to indulge your senses in the outdoors, soak up a little culture or beauty, or something as simple as a bath and an afternoon nap. The 9 of Pentacles is the card of self-sufficiency; a reminder that we’re doing well enough financially to spend a few precious pennies on ourselves. What you may have not considered is that taking time out, whether it’s a walk by the sea, a shopping spree, or an afternoon of pampering, not only brings its own inspirational energy, but more importantly, a chance to recharge and remind ourselves of the Why behind our passions.

The King of Pentacles throws a curveball, chucking a number of possibilities into our awareness. First, he asks us to consider mentoring. Would a mentor boost your creative process? Or, are you now in a position to mentor an up-and-coming creative? The King of Pentacles is also a master manifestor, turning everything he touches into gold. What would it take to manifest your financial goals, and who could help you to achieve it?

Consider also how you handle money. If you’re responsible and always on top of money matters, then you’re golden. If not, this card indicates now is the ideal time to connect with a financial advisor. Whatever the King focuses on becomes his reality, and with the determination of the 7 of Pentacles bookending this reading, it indicates positive energy surrounding manifestation at this time, so take heed!

With such a grounded energy carrying us into the incoming week, we can expect a lot of practical, responsible activity around our creative projects. Jump on the crest of this wave and make the most of manifesting, but don’t forget to hit pause and enjoy the fruits of your labour, too! Have a wonderful week, creative souls!
