Now without further adieu, here's my reading for the upcoming week (beginning today, March 27th 2018) ...
Happy Tarot Tuesday, Steemians!
First, a quick roundup on how I put this reading together every week -
I use my very old and 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.
Now for 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?
Alright, well, last week, it occurred to me that there are SO many brilliant musicians here on Steemit, why not use one of the gazillion songs I fall in love with each day for my "Jeopardy Music"?
For this week, I KNEW I had to use this song by @paintingangels, a woman whose talent (and generosity) is beyond wickedly huge! Unfortunately, when I decided on this song, it didn't occur to me it would be past payout by the time my post was up (of course, the one I picked for @tarotbyfergus last week was long past - think I gotta work a few kinks outta this idea). Therefore, if you end up falling in love with this beautifully lyrical work as much as I do, please consider visiting her most recent song post (equally amazing, and gut-wrenchingly evocative piece) called, Savage Land (Trail of Tears) - (original) and showing your appreciation there.
So, as I was saying, now that you've decided on a card, or cards, while you're scrolling, please enjoy this musical interlude...

"It's a cold night and the wind is still. Your hands are unsteady, but not your will. Don't hold your breath, I can't wait that long. Keep going, sweetheart. You've gotta be strong, cause it's a crazy world and it won't slow down. You've gotta catch your train before it skips this town It's a crazy world." ~ Serena Matthews
"It's a cold night
and the wind is still.
Your hands are unsteady,
but not your will.
Don't hold your breath,
I can't wait that long.
Keep going, sweetheart.
You've gotta be strong,
cause it's a crazy world
and it won't slow down.
You've gotta catch your train
before it skips this town
It's a crazy world." ~ Serena Matthews
Alrighty, here's the big reveal! Your card is...
1. Seven of Swords
The Thief. Something is being stolen from you, but not necessarily an object. Someone is stealing your good name, your energy, or your time. However, because the situation isn’t overt (they’re being very sneaky), a direct confrontation probably won’t work. Try being sneaky in return – like the old saying goes, “it takes a thief to catch a thief.”
2. The Moon
Something mystical this way comes. You know the craziness that arrives with the full moon? You’re about to get your own personal full moon-itis. You’ll find yourself saying many times over, “What the absolute insert profanity of choice is going on?” But like a roller coaster ride (which is what your life will feel like for a short time), you have the option to squeeze your eyes shut, hang on to the handrail, and scream the whole time, or toss your arms up in the air like you just don’t care (after making sure your seat belt is fastened), hoot & holler, and enjoy the hell out of it. Your creative juices are also in high gear, so go for the gusto and make your dreams come true!
3. Nine of Cups
Satisfaction is imminent. You’ve put tons of good karma, juju, and positivity into the world. Now the Universe wants to give some back. Relax, and sit by the fire for a spell while the Universe fills your cup with your favorite beverage. The innkeeper may also be asking you, what's the good of all your hard work, if you don't take a moment to enjoy it? Maybe it's time to splurge on yourself a bit for a change. Every now and then, it's good to cut loose...Footloose... kick off the Sunday shoes...
So, what did you think of your message? Feel free to shout out in the comment section with your thoughts, or any questions.
Bright blessings to you in the week ahead!
