Today is my last day at my current job, so I wanted a little Tarot support before I go. I used cards from The Gendron Tarot by Melanie Gendron.
How can I overcome my obstacles today? 9 of Wands - Stand strong, stand by my decision, and push through the day. In Tarot for a New Generation by Janina Renee', the 9 of Wands says that, "A person who has all of his energies aligned has the strength needed to go up against obstacles." That's encouraging.
Finally, what is my overall card for the day? 8 of Wands - This card is often seen as the movement or travel card. It can indicate success in moving towards your goals. I need to quit this job in order to create the space to do what I really want to do. I talked about this in my other blog here. The 8 of Wands can also indicate swiftness. I sure do hope my time at work today goes by quickly!
In this particular card, a woman is standing inside a beautifully-decorated room while the wands outside are flying around. There are a lot of things going on at work because I am leaving. Because the managers never hired anyone to take my place, they are scrambling around and blaming me. Luckily, I am safely inside, secure in my own self, watching the turmoil that is taking place all around me. I do not have to be a part of that, nor do I have to take blame for others' mistakes. I cannot let them try to guilt me into staying longer because they did not do their job (there's that obstacle again) because I was responsible in my decision to leave.
It is interesting to note that these cards are 7, 8, and 9, indicating the end of one cycle. Of course, this also means the beginning of a new, and hopefully more exciting, cycle!
