It’s over now, and the decision has been made, so I can finally talk about it. Some of you who are close to me have been seeing our struggle for the past month or two as a new promotion came up for my husband.
He’s been through a long process of whether or not they might offer him the job. But the catch is – we’d have to move. Again. We just moved across the country less than 2 years ago, and are just now getting settled into Omaha.
But I agreed that if it was the right opportunity, we’d be up and going again – this time to Wichita, Kansas. I wasn’t thrilled about the prospect but the joy of owning your own business is that you can work from anywhere, so of course I was up for it.
Brent was finally offered the position, but some things started to come out about the job that sounded a little…hinky.
So last night he suggested we do a Tarot reading, just to see. Normally I would call on another reader for a big life decision like this, but he told me basically, “They’ve offered me the position, and I have to give them an answer in the morning.”
Of course. So Brent shuffled the Angel Tarot deck by Doreen Virtue, and I pulled the snarky and oh-so-reliable Fey Tarot.
As I was about to start shuffling, my eye caught the Fool, and I said, “Okay, if the Fool comes up in this reading, I will know it’s a Foolish Decision, and we shouldn’t do it.”
Normally the Fool is all about moving forward, taking chances in life, and bold new opportunities.
But in this deck that just doesn’t seem right.
So wouldn’t you know it, the Fool actually showed up!
Between the cards Brent drew and the other cards from the Fey Tarot, it was pretty obvious that we should stay put for now, but that another opportunity might come up in the future.
When you’re doing a reading, sometimes it’s good to designate a card as a “definite yes” or “definite no.” You might be surprised what happens!
