Now without further adieu, here's my reading for the upcoming week (beginning today, April 3rd, 2018) ...

Happy Tarot Tuesday, Steemians!

Here's a quick roundup on how I put this reading together every week -

I use my very old & extremely well-loved Universal Waite Smith Tarot Deck to draw the cards. Then, because the cards are definitely not ready for their closeup, I photograph the cards using my stand-in Radiant Deck. Oh, and yes - it's a new picture of the back of the cards every week.

On with the reading. Pick the card (or cards) that you're drawn to, then scroll to the bottom of this post for the card reveal and my short interpretation of what to expect in the upcoming week. If you're drawn to more than one, or want to use all three, go for it! 😊

Okay, you’ve picked your card (or cards), right?

So, a couple weeks ago, it occurred to me that since there are TONS of brilliant musicians here on Steemit, why not use one of the gazillion songs I fall in love with each day for my "Jeopardy Music"?

This week, I've actually managed to pick one that hasn't reached post payout yet! I'd already fallen in love with another song by this magical artist and originally planned to use it for today, even though it's two weeks out. But when I stumbled across this one a few days ago, I knew I'd save the other for another week, and use this gorgeousness instead.

As I was saying, now that you've decided on a card, or cards, while you're scrolling, please enjoy Morning Light (Original Song) by the incredibly talented and beyond sweetheart of a person, @yidneth...

 
 

"Dry your eyes, oh lost child,
No one heard you cry
Hold still, time might ease
Night can trick you when darkness brings
that old forgotten fear
It drinks you to the marrow, a load that doesn't allow
your feet to run away
And lies spread on lies, but no one seems to care,
at least it looks that way...
I know the sun will rise, and it will shine the same
for sinners and for saints...
I guess I have to learn
the lessons life may bring
the way that things can turn
Face your fate
even if it's unfair
there's no one you can blame
And lies spread on lies
and no one seems to care
at least it looks that way...
I know the sun will rise, and it will shine the same
for sinners and for saints...
oh Morning Light... don't delay!" ~ Priscilla Hernandez

Alrighty, here's the big reveal! Your card is...

This!

1. Three of Swords


Yikes! Every time I see this card as my daily, that’s the first word that pops into my head. Today is going to be a day of finding out things you really don’t want to hear, but in the end, they will be extremely healing. Like lancing a wound, you will get some pretty cutting truths, but at least you will finally have the facts, even if they aren’t the ones you want. Let the poison in your heart drain out, then you can begin to heal. Give yourself some time to wallow, listen to your favorite emo song (like Closure by Chevelle), then take a deep breath and move on.

2. Nine of Pentacles


Retreat from the world. You deserve a break today, so get up and get away, to ... nope, not that place. Unless, of course, you go grab a bag of Mickey D's and bring it someplace to enjoy in solitude because up next on the menu is, "Escape, with a side of pampering." It can be as fancy as a day of mani pedis and wine, or as simple as a quiet room with a great book (the chocolate and coffee go without saying). Indulge, indulge, indulge - plenty of time for reality tomorrow.

3. Two of Cups


Makes the world go 'round. While it's easy to see this is a card about love, what's not so obvious is that it also represents other relationships, not just the romantic one between two (or more) people. This could be a recent furry/feathered addition to the family, a passion for a creative process (writing, painting, knitting), or even something as simple as discovering a new favorite show to binge-watch (like Farscape or Jessica Jones). It's also a reminder that the first, most important love we should have is for ourselves. As the late, great Lucille Ball once said, "Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world."
