Today's Featured Reading

Q. Will I ever find a job that is rewarding?

A. The Tarot card I drew is the Five of Swords. Swords correspond to the suit of Spades in modern card decks.

The 5 of Swords depicts a man standing on a battlefield; he's the only one left standing tall and he has collected all the swords that belonged to his enemies. He is holding his own sword up in victory.

You are far from alone in job frustration. Many people are going through job turmoil at the moment. In your case, I am seeing that if you persist, you will be standing tall on the battlefield in victory, too, when all is said and done.

However, standing in victory does require some preparation. The victor in the 5 of Swords image didn't just have his win handed to him. He TRAINED for it and EARNED it. That's something you might want to look into, as well, if you haven't done so already: training to work in a field that you will enjoy. If you already completed the training, or are going through the training now, then this card is acknowledging that you're on the right path. If not, then look into what it'll take to get the training that you need for the fulfilling career you want.

But the victor didn't merely get training in how to swordfight, in order to win. He actually had to fight the battle in order to win it. "Fighting the battle", in this case, is the legwork needed to land the job you're looking for: sending the resumes, seeking out people in the field you want to work in and getting to know them, looking into some kind of internship or apprenticeship if necessary to get your foot in the door. That's the how to navigate the "battlefield" that is today's job market.

So there you have it -- prepare yourself with education and with doing the legwork for the kind of job you REALLY want, and you will also be preparing for the day when you, too, stand victorious on the battlefield.

Here's an example of a reading that illustrates how the future is not engraved in stone. The person asking the question has the possibility of success, yes, but it won't just fall into their lap. First they have to do their part, and *then* they will realize their potential with success.

So even if your reading points to achieving your goals, it's not time to sit on your hands. It's time to do whatever it takes to reach those goals. THEN, and only then, will you see that part of your reading come to pass. So get to it. Get that reading and then go after whatever you want to accomplish most! :-)

Good luck and God bless!
