A Great Tarot Question from Tarot Author, Sasha Graham

Last week, Ellen @ Greylady’s Hearth mentioned an interview at Daily Tarot Girl, which was an interesting interview with Tarot Author, Sasha Graham. I highly recommend you check it out.

One of the things mentioned was a good question to use with the Tarot.

Sasha’s question: “What can I do right now in this moment that will bring me pleasure and also positively impact my future?” To me, this is a very powerful question to ask and as you will see in a moment the results are clear and informative.

Kate’s question: “What do I need to see or know right now?” This is another great question and very similar to my own go-to question.

I've changed the wording slightly from Sasha’s to better fit my approach for this reading.

Question: What can I do this week that will bring me pleasure and also positively impact my future?

Look at all those Wands! It’s going to be an ACTION week. I love how it flows; this is who you need to be and what you need to do.

The Queen sits upon her throne. Her expression is sure and steady. Of all the Queens, this one seems the busiest to me. She has a career, takes care of a family, and is active in the community. She knows what she wants and is determined to achieve her goals. She can and will have it all.

I need to be strong and determined. In order to achieve my goals, I will need to play many roles and succeed in each. This isn't about multi-tasking; it is about multi-achieving. I can work my full-time job, have an organized home, and achieve my goals. Determination is the key.

The 9 of Wands encourages me to rise to the challenges before me in order to reach success. I must stand my ground, defend what is mine, and face the challenge. I am the only one who can do this for me and my goals.

The 3 of Wands reveals delays due to poor planning. It highlights unrealistic strategies and a need to re-evaluate. I tend to over-extend myself. The ‘I can have it all’ attitude is wonderful, but there is a need to be real. One can only do so much in the allotted time of a day. Priorities need to be set, and plans need to be made.

Overview – Approach the week in action mode. Believe in yourself and your ability to succeed and take actions to achieve your goals. There will be challenges, but you can and will face them. You may experience delays if you do not carefully plan your strategy for achievement.  

Enjoy the week! Don't take no for an answer, and eliminate can't from your vocabulary.

Believing in yourself is often the best motivation to get things done.
I like the last card as a warning not to be too over achieving. Otherwise we'll be in a ten of wands situation next week :D

Finding myself in the 10 of Wands would definitely be normal for me, but perhaps if I'm careful I can stay out of it. :)

Oh, I hope you'll do more of these Q&A, Cher. It's so interesting and educational. I can see where the cards fit and how the answer is right there. Too often we're so desperate for concrete answers that we miss the big picture.
