The Inquiry

Inquiry Topic: Career Time frame: 3 months Numbers: 3- 42-65

{Q} My question is about a career change. I have a job but I am considering starting a side business in hopes I can quit. This would be an internet business that offers advice and tips to those who want to do DIY home improvements and or style their house to sell. I am going to need help to learn how this project could be profitable. My question is: Should I start this business? Will it be successful? and what should I do for the next three months. I have a friend that is interested in working with me, but she has no money to help with startup.

{MM} Hi, [name]. I can feel your eagerness to unfold your wings, stretch in the warmth of the sunlight and fly high on your own. I’m glad you shared with me that you currently have a career in place because shifting from one known path ( your job today) to another path of unknowns is a bold decision. I am also very glad to know that you are prepared to put some planning and thought into how this can be achieved. The three card reading that follows cannot answer your first question with a ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Only you can decide if you should take the first steps. Let’s explore the cards one by one and then as pairs to see how things might play out over these next three months.

The Spread

Clarity 1-2-3

The Clarity 1-2-3 spread is a used when we need a combination of understanding, insight, and focus on the topic of inquiry. The spread is an overview and is best used when the Querent is seeking a path

to begin a process or bring a current process to fruition.

#1 Card of Influence: The first card reveals both past and present (push/pull) forces

that may be influencing a decision, idea or relationship. It represents the first level of clarity we need for one to recognize the positive and the negative and make a choice of how to react.

#2 Spotlight Card: This card is the second level of clarity and is meant to

illuminate something, someone, or even a thought process that directly affects the topic of inquiry in the present and possibly in the future. These things may be staring us in the face or hidden from view but they must be recognized with clarity to enable unencumbered decision making.

#3 Steering Card: This card is not exactly an ‘outcome’ card, rather it is a card of

direction. This third level of clarity is to help you take the proper steps, find the course of action and/or alert you to the bumpy road or smooth sailing that is ahead

Six of Pentacles

(reversed)

#1 Card of Influence: (Keywords)

forces of influence, push / pull, past and present

The first card in this story is Pentacles and is rooted in the topic of finance and material gains (or losses). This sets the course of the reading to parallel the question about career, business, resources, and things financial. The suit of Pentacles also touches on security, status, and ability to appreciate what we have. The Six of Pentacles is about tangibles - those thing in the material world that we own or possess. The card also relates to our relationship to these items and how we achieve the means to obtain them.

Sharing and generosity - the give and the take - are strongly indicated by this card, but with reversal there is a lack of satisfaction. This lack of satisfaction can be exacerbated by two parties BOTH feeling like they give give give, but don’t find the value and effort is appreciated or returned. So, there is an underlying need to break free of this cycle. Everyone involved is being held back in someway. This could be people not expressing themselves to each other or there is a rule in place, or an impossibility imposed that keeps this cycle of unfulfillment going round and round. This Six of Pentacles Reversed is also an indicator that ‘going it alone’ is not as

favorable as asking for and seeking help, and all with the possibility of gaining back as much as you give away. It may be time to move outside the grip of

relationships that are too binding, but in doing so (breaking free) it is wise to accept the hand of the ‘passerby’ who offers (even small) assistance, support, or nuturing. If there is no hand visible then ask for help.

From the cautionary viewpoint the Reversed Six of Pentacles alerts us to influences and behavior that is less than stellar. The card shows there could be a vulnerability for one to succumb to greed or envy. This is a landscape that will surely slow any path towards fulfillment. One should also be aware of those who may want manipulate others, or draw you into unfair or shady (get rish quick) practices for their own gain.

{MM} The reversal of the Six of Pentacles in the Card of Influence position signifies a conflict. The number six in particular is about equilibrium. With this reversal, I sense there is an upsetting of equilibrium or balance due to antagonizing forces. These forces are current and are contributing to the high or low level of satisfaction at the workplace.

It is possible that a series of events have caused a withdrawal of generosity at both home and the workplace. At work, this may come as a hesitation or reluctance to share knowledge or go the extra mile - maybe even a strong distaste for repetition of tasks that have no meaning or seem unnecessary. At home, this may be showing itself as just pure exhaustion and constant battle between - the wanting to give time and energy, but also needing to do some self-refueling.

As a a career centric story, there are some questions that should be asked:

{A?} Ask yourself: Why do I want to leave my job? Think carefully about the emotional reasons you are seeking a career change. Money is the simplest of all answers. Spell it out to yourself - write it down - seek the truth. Do you want to be appreciated? Do you want to see tangible results? Do you measure your own self-worth by the happiness your work brings to others?

{MM} Once there is a better understanding of the deep motivations for changing career; it will be easier to choose the best step forward, the best environment, the best partnerships, the best tools to help further this goal. Understanding yourself will not only add clarity to daily decisions, it will help attract those who have a similar vision of prosperity and fulfillment. When all these forces are aligned - the balance happens naturally and getting from ‘here’ to ‘there’ is easier. {/MM}

Nine of Wands

The second card in the story is the suit of Wands and it symbolizes the sparks of creativity, ideas and inspiration. Wands support and reveal the beginning aspects of putting the pieces together, building, getting things done, and solutions.

The Nine of Wands brings out the complexity of this suit because the card represents endings and beginnings. Something must end for this next phase or endeavor to begin. Wands are by nature the igniters of something new. The challenge comes with the application or distribution of energy, strength and confidence. One must be mindful of spreading themselves or their resources too thin. Loss of confidence is at risk.

The upside is that the Nine of Wands is a re-enforcing card. It is a reminder that for this career situation there are untapped inner strengths and a healthy vigor available to you especially when a time of challenge or ‘battle’ presents itself. And... that brings up another face to the Nine of Wands. There may very well be a difficulty, increased tension, or an adversity that ends with a few brusied egos. The important thing to remember is that all measure of resilance, confidence

present and future, recognize the obvious, uncover the hidden, impending decisions

and discipline should be utilized to move forward. If feelings of paranoia or

defensiveness creep in; this will not advance one’s goals. It will only slow down the change or transition to the next beginning.

This card is a reminder to stay on course because with the experience of discipline and a clear vision the next steps in your journey will move you forward, into change, and you will emerge with positive accomplishments.

{MM} As this tarot story unfolds, there are trust issues coming front and center and there is an element of keeping secrets. During the course of planning and making a career change it is wise to put forth your due diligence and begin your self-evaluation, research, and business strategy. And, it makes sense that one should seek advice and counsel on unfamiliar subjects, but announcing your plans to the world must be timed carefully. Clearly, no one would confide in their employer they were planning on leaving their position. This sort of thing is best kept within a small circle of people. And one should be advised not to share this information with other peers at work, or in any setting where your intentions, plans, confidence, and momemtum could be dismanteled prematurely by others. Be prepared to take some lumps and lick your wounds if this were to happen.

It is important to focus on things that layout your route, step by step, and only reveal what is necessary to others when they are within a circle of trust and like-mindedness. Ironically, the position meaning of this card is to shed light on something critical... and the critical thing it is shedding light on is when to keep things secret. {/MM}

{A?} Ask yourself: Have I set forth a competent plan to make a change in my life? This means you are asking yourself the hard questions... Can I pay the bills while the new business is developing and growing? Can I manage the household by myself? Are you willing to give up time and some luxury or entertainment to launch this plan? Am I prepared to make decisions based on sound business practice and not on emotion?

#3 Steering Card: (keywords)

Five of Cups

The Tarot has revealed Cups for the third and final card of this reading. Cups is a suit representing emotions and how they are expressed, how they influence the Inquiry. The meaning of Card 3 in the Clarity Spread is called the ‘Steering Card’ and the message here is that emotions are going to be a significant factor in the planning of and embarking on a career change.

The Five of Cups is one of a handful of cards that plays out better IF it is in

reverse, unfortunately for this Tarot story it is upright. The meaning of five relates strategically to our senses (5 senses) our human-ness (5 fingers, 5 toes) and this digs ever deeper into revealing the profound influence emotions are going to play in your career topic.

Ok, let’s just get it out there... this card indicates setbacks, loss and regret... and feelings of guilt, sadness or remorse. This is the ‘spilt milk’ card and in this reading it is playing out as a big warning sign - a flashing warning sign by showing up as the ‘Steering Card’. The Five of Cups in this steering position very much brings into focus two things: #1 something in the past or soon to be past while on your career

journey could be steeped in strong debilitating emotions such as depression, guilt, or regret. These emotions could be strong enough to derail your objectives - IF

- you let them.

and/or #2 The road map ahead has a series of emotional landmines that have to be thwarted, side stepped, or overcome. There may very well be some monetary loss or mistakes made.

The clear motivator behind this Tarot card is to encourge FOCUS. Get past what is in the past and move ahead with the future. Let go! and Get going! If you encounter new triggers that call back these feelings - don’t let that send you spiraling into a place where you cannot make good decisions and steer toward progress.

This card indicates that you must be prepared to deflect the negative emotional contributions of others AND control your own responses to be even tempered. {MM} From just about every angle this card reads as cautionary. It is not saying, “No, don’t do it, don’t go forward.” This is not a ‘NO’ card. Rather it is trying to tell you there is a level of mental preparation you must explore if you are going to journey successfully and keep your emotions intact - especially when responding to others who may attempt to exert emotional outbursts on, or excessive control over you. To make it really simple... the lesson presented advises: “Don’t worry, be happy.” - and count to 10 if you feel yourself sliding into an over emotional state.

The possible loss or setback indicated by this card seems to be leaning toward a person or several people more than the tangible loss of money or possessions... But there could be a misunderstanding that involves the use or ownership of

something valuable to you or someone else.

If you do suffer a monetary loss or make a judgement that costs you in time or money; don’t keep kicking yourself over it. Move on and learn from the experience. Consider it your tuition for a ‘live and learn’ short course and use your new found knowlege to avoid repeating the mistake and help others to do avoid too.

This could be a good time to expand your communication skills by reading up on the positive psychology topic called Appreciative Inquiry.{/MM}

{A?} Ask yourself: Am I prepared for the long haul in this project? How can I stay positive, focused and clear headed when adversity arises? Are there resources

available to help me learn and maintain a professional and productive methodology during my career change process?

The Six of Pentacles - Earth Reversed is paired with the Nine of Wands - Fire Upright. The pictoral characters on these two cards are facing each other, but not looking directly at each other. Each seems to be distracted either by something in their present or by their silent thoughts. These cards exist separately and exert neutral forces over each other. From a timeline perspective these cards are going to (for a short period of time) exert themselves together, side by side to influence the beginnings of a career shift.

The Nine of Wands - Fire Upright and the Five of Cups - Water Upright is a rough pairing. These cards refuse to connect in any positive way so we must read the messages under the pretense of: prepare to be prepared. The pictoral symbolism of the figures is quite literally ... two persons totally absorbed in their own thoughts and feelings. They have no awareness of one another because they are deep within their current situation. They are both in a self-imposed disconnect. From a timeline perspective, these two cards influence a longer period and part of that time stretch will have blocks of time where nothing is accomplished. The caution here is to try and minimize those rough spots by working through the cause and effects.

Anticipate and recognize a scenario that could go sour and try to minimize it. Let’s look at what is missing in this reading: the suit of Swords. Swords represent the intellectual, lucid and logical thinking. Without the appearance of Swords in this reading the elements of Water and Fire together are able to prevail with strong emotional reactions. The Five of Cups is a card of extreme emotion on the darker side so this card reveals a warning that extra effort will be needed to move emotionally past a challenge by thinking more analytically to reach the rewards of new career.

Sometimes a Tarot Story ends conveniently with a card that symbolizes completion, realization and closure. Unfortunately, this reading ends with the Five of Cups and ‘fives’ in general are not representative of closure. The topic of this inquiry is still very much open and should be looked at as a “To be continued...” ending.

[Pentacles - Wands - Cups] [ Earth - Fire - Water] [6 (+3) 9 (-4) 5 :: 2] {MM} Think through your personal motivation for wanting to start a new career and seek the most optimistic path that could bring fullfillment. There will be a temptation to go it alone but asking for and accepting help will likely place success in your future. Caution is advised when sharing your ideas or excitment with others. Some people may discourage you in ways that will fuel self-doubt and some may (accidentally or on purpose) outright derail your course for a period of time. The formal announcement of your change should be timed with care and the strategic planning of your endeavor should be kept within a close circle of trusted people who share a similar vision when if comes to accomplishments.

The cards are indicative of one or more challenges that could become emotionally charged. A partnership may be lost or you may suffer guilt, bitterness, or sadness over a difficult or flawed decision. Staying on track is the key. Find the strength to focus and move on. Learn from your mistakes and let bygones be bygones. The energy and enthsiasm reserves are there by the boat load - within you. The path toward progress and success can be navigated better when overly emotional responses are placed in check and you can assume an intellectual stance. {/MM}
