Hi I'm Brigit, founder of Biddy Tarot, and this is the Monthly Tarot Forecast for July 2016. I've got three cards for you: The Blessings, the Challenges, and the Outcome for the month ahead.
Blessings card: Nine of Wands
I've got here the Nine of Wands for the Blessings. Why would the Nine of Wands be a blessing or an opportunity? It's a card about perseverance, and even though the odds might be stacked up against you and you're feeling either overwhelmed, or pressured, or a lot of responsibilities sitting on your back, you are still standing strong. He's got all these wands behind him that kind of look a little bit threatening, and he's also bandaged, and it kind of signifies he's feeling a bit rough and tumbled. But he's not letting that get to him -- he's not running away, he's standing up and he's like, "I'm going to do this." And remember this is a nine, so it's like right at the end of the cycle ... it's like, I know I'm so close... I just have to do that little bit of extra effort to get to the end of this cycle. See your perseverance this month as your blessing. It's that sense of resilience and grit that is really building in you and is actually working to your advantage.
Challenge card: Two of Pentacles
So let's have a look at our Challenges. Now, I have the Two of Pentacles here. He's juggling two coins, -- this is often a sign of needing to juggle various priorities. You're often dealing with many, many things that all need your attention. I know they say focus on one thing only, and I think that's awesome advice, but sometimes it's so hard to know, what is that one thing? So the challenge I see for July is being able to identify, what is this one thing that needs my attention? So here's what you need to do: If this is a challenge that you're really resonating with, it's all about looking about what's most important to you know, what must happen in order for you to reach your goals, vs. what's a "nice-to-have." Then you also need to start being more careful around planning your time. What you really need to do is map out your week or map out your month even, and make sure that you do have the time that's necessary in order to achieve all your goals.
Recommendations card: The Sun
Let's wrap it up with the Outcome for the month, and I'm so glad that we've got The Sun here, because The Sun is a reminder that even though you're stuck in the day-to-day stuff and sometimes that feels a bit overwhelming, The Sun says, "You know what? Life is good." Your day-to-day stuff might be a little bit challenging right now, but overall, life is really good. It's really important to reflect on the things that make you happy, that bring you joy, that bring you peace. Even if it's that you're putting all your time and effort into those task and chores maybe during the week, then make sure that you've got say the weekend to have fun. Bask in your success and reflect on your achievements for the week. It's really important that you balance things, that hard work with a bit of the fun and playtime.
The bigger picture here is that your life is wonderful, so give thanks and be grateful for all the wonderful things you do have in your life. The more that you put your attention there, the more you'll start to elevate and lift your energy.
