It all seems a bit pointless these days, getting out of bed. I mean, what have I got to do with my days? Well, I have two children to care for, and a dog to train. I have my blog work and my freelance writing. I have my novels to write. And I have a house to work on. Our garden requires a lot of maintenance! So yes, lockdown is keeping me busy, and I barely had time to do today’s Tarot reading, but here it is. See if it makes sense to you.
1, Work – Five of Wands (reversed)
Everything seems upside-down where work is concerned. You struggle to fit it around lockdown life, and yet you feel that you should find the task easier. In my case I have worked from home for almost ten years, so this is my natural environment. My struggle is prioritising work above the children and their needs. I am fortunate to have my husband providing the family income, but I still need to work for myself at some point. Hopefully, it will become easier as time goes on.
2, Home – Eight of Swords (reversed)
This is supposed to be a good time, safe at home, if you don’t catch the dreaded coronavirus. That is what everybody says on social media, isn’t it? We can do home exercise, home working, home leisure, baking, crafts and all the fun stuff. And yet perhaps home hasn’t been the haven that you dreamed about. Real life is not social media. Real life is having children to care for, pets to tend to, bosses to answer to, and so many boring responsibilities. It is all about perspective. There is something about all of this that you have wilfully ignored, but you have plenty of time to formulate a plan.
3, Unexpected – Knight of Pentacles
It was all supposed to happen so smoothly, but then the pandemic hit and now nothing is certain. Your dreams remain on the horizon. All you can do is take one day at a time, with no expectations. It may seem a hard slog, but such is life. Just enjoy the fun when you can.
4, Your Role – Ten of Wands
You carry a heavy burden and you have no idea when you will be able to share it with someone. For now, you are the silent labourer, working quietly. It will all come good eventually.
5, Outcome – Wheel of Fortune
There is a good result awaiting you at the end of this ordeal. Your hard work and perseverance will pay off. Whatever your spiritual beliefs, you will achieve your goal. In fact, you can achieve all your goals. This is just a temporary glitch in the big plan.
