Now without further adieu, here's my reading for the upcoming week (beginning today, April 10th, 2018) ...

Happy Tarot Tuesday, Steemians!

For those who are interested, 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?

First - a few 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"?

Unlike the past few weeks, I didn't have a particular song in mind for this reading. Monday afternoon, I started browsing through the @helpie Discord channel, and two seconds later, caught an amazing recommendation from @paintingangels. Remember her and her amazing song from the March 27th reading? If you don't, do yourself a favor, and go refresh your memory! 😊

Now that you're done reacquainting yourself with her awesomeness, it's time to scroll through to your message. While you do, please enjoy this entry into the Steemit open mic weekly contest (sponsored by @pfunk and @luzcypher). It's a mind-blowing, chill-inducing cover of the sultry, jazzy Summertime song covered by a multitude of talented singers over the years, This time, it's recreated by the incredibly talented @moccamonica!


"Summertime, and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Oh, your daddy's rich and your ma is good-lookin'
So hush little baby, Don't you cry

One of these mornings you're gonna rise up singing
And you'll spread your wings and you'll take to the sky
But 'til that morning, there ain't nothin' can harm you
With Daddy and Mammy standin' by

Summertime, and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Oh, your daddy's rich and your ma is good-lookin'
So hush little baby, Don't you cry

One of these mornings you're gonna rise up singing
And you'll spread your wings and you'll take to the sky
But 'til that morning, there ain't nothin can harm you
With Daddy and Mammy standin' by"

~ DuBose Heyward

1. The Hermit

Time for quiet contemplation. You need solitude. Some quiet time to reflect on things without distractions. It could be as simple as 15 minutes alone in a room without electronics or interruptions. But this isn’t the time to rest or nap – this is a chance to actively listen to your inner voice and see what it’s saying to you. Try something like journaling or guided meditation, and see how loud the silence can be.

23. Knight of Pentacles

Keep your focus. You were so excited and full of energy when you took the first step on your new journey. Now you feel like you've lost your steam, and all you're doing is trudging along, without getting any closer to your goal. Don't give up hope! Stick to your plan, stay focused on the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and remember what Amelia Earhart said - "The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity."

3. Six of Cups

Happier times. You’ve discovered, or rediscovered something you love. Maybe a hobby long forgotten, or a person you’re reconnecting with. You now recognize how much you care. This is the start of something beautiful and meaningful – cherish it. This may also be a reminder that if you’re in the middle of some dark times, and you’re longing for the the idyllic days in your past, stop wasting your energy wishing for what’s gone. Don't look back - focus instead on the positive memories, and use them to inspire new ones.

I chose number one this week @traciyork and this bit jumped out at me:

this is a chance to actively listen to your inner voice and see what it’s saying to you

It was the active listen that caught my eye. I think I've been a bit casual about it lately! 😊


Same here, @gillianpearce - in fact, I've been sticking my fingers in my ears, and refusing to listen. LOL! Think I gotta work on that too. 😊


I love this advice for the week, too. With the cocktail of astrological swirls, this is a wonderful piece of advice.


Seems like a lot of us needed to hear this one @intuitivejakob! 😁

No. 3 for me this time and I'm very happy with the card :)

I've definitely been rediscovering old loves, and loving life at the moment.

Thanks Traci <3


Awesomeness, @redrica and you're very welcome!

Congratz, your post has been resteemed and, who knows, will maybe appear in the next edition of the #dailyspotlights (Click on my face if you want to know more about me...)


Thank you kindly, @pixresteemer! 💜 📷

ohh this song is wonderful! I love this version! thanks for sharing :)
I chose the Hermit - which totally resonates and confirms my mental message from last night lol I got this download that was telling me I need to spend more time alone - in mediation and that the answers to my struggles will come by disconnecting myself from the situation so it was sooo good to see this message reverberated here :)
Thanks for the reading <3 <3


You're very welcome, @amariespeaks! So glad the answer resonated for you. 💜

No 1 for me this week and it's quite true actually. Been trying to figure a lot of stuff out lately.


Sending lots of good thinking energy your way, @jusipassetti!

So 3 for me!! @traciyork, I love these!!

I'm getting ready to do my Tarot Tuesday on DLive in a couple of hours. Just getting my spaces ready for this.


Thanks so much, @intuitivejakob! 😊

I picked number 3 this week. Great reading! I'll keep my eyes open for what is coming in or maybe is here already.


Thanks, Roger! 😊

Hi @traciyork you won't believe how true this is for me...maybe there is some truth in this..lol!


LOL, @giantbear! I might be a bit biased, but I think there just might be... 😂

Thanks girl... I really needed that - especially now... [Chose number 2... The Knight...]


You're very welcome, and that's an awesome pick for you! 😊

What can really be said¿ Is it your shuffle or my pick? Every Wednesday when I get here, you hit the nail on its head, again! I think, na, that's too right, I'll go read @amariespeaks, but hey, is it her shuffle or my pick, Again. Ok, I obviously needed to see this. Thank you for a another week. I will now have to go cast my own. Pay attention @simon62 ¡!! _thats me, not you 😆


LOL! You're very welcome, @simon62!


I had put my cards away a year ago, as for awhile there I was finding they only reflected my daily internal intuit. When I 'need' a view separately, I bring them out for a meditative/contemplative session. Even after yours and @amariespeaks casts, when I read my cast, it is usually an expansion of that which one or both of you have cast. That is the one, which I have chosen of yours. I have not tried to read an application with all cast. 😄
Keep on keeping on. 😇
