Intuitive Tuesday on Thursday -- Three of Cups & Eight of Pentacles

On Intuitive Tuesdays I select a card and give you my interpretation of it. On Thursday I select one reader's comment and pull an additional card.

I encourage you to read about the additional card I pulled this week and see how it applies to your life. Anything that is brought to one of us is a message for all of us.

This week's Intuitive Tuesday card was The Six of Pentacles (reversed) which is about being aware of what's going on with your money...and having free will.

Today's follow-up cards come from the Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti and Barbara Moore. They are in response to Kim whose comment was:
Another very appropriate card!
Last week I completed with a client that ended a bit... challengingly. The client has yet to pay for the last month's fee and I have a hunch I'm not going to see it. Last night I was contemplating how I would handle that if it happens.
Yesterday, I also had a client have to suddenly stop coaching due to a temporary financial set back - however she is intending to continue in a few months. Looking forward to Thursday's followup :)
I shuffled the cards and said, "Tell me what I need to know about Kim's business." I pulled the Three of Cups, which has to do with bringing people together for fun and celebration. For more information on the Three of Cups, click here and here.

It is a very positive card and my impression was that everything was coming together for you, your business and your clients.

Remember too that threes are cards of creation, growth and expansion...which leads me to believe that something may be coming together or changing in your business.

I confirmed this by pulling a second card, the Eight of Pentacles, which is known as the "work" card. For more information on this card, click here and here.

In combining the energy of the Three of Cups and the Eight of Pentacles in regards to your comments, I wonder if perhaps you will be faced with the possibility of creating or enhancing part of your business that has to do with groups of people. These events would be fun, would build community and may promote healing and education.

If you've been contemplating something like this, these two cards would indicate it is time to move forward. If you haven't explored this yet, don't be surprised if an opportunity presents itself.

Either way, it may be a good time to do some brainstorming as to how you can change the focus of your business to be more group-oriented, which also takes some of the pressure off of you when you have a difficult client session, or when someone postpones their appointments, etc.

On a personal note...
After selecting Tuesday's Six of Pentacles (reversed), we were eating at a restaurant that evening and our credit card was denied. A call to the credit card company, pushing several buttons for the automated attendant, and answering some key questions and the card was re-activated. I was glad to know that they were diligent about making sure my card had not been stolen, and I smiled knowing that this was the Six of Pentacles energy at work.

As for today's cards -- the Three of Cups and the Eight of Pentacles -- I am being asked to shift my business to reach more people at once. This doesn't meant I'll give up my one-on-one appointments, but possibly that I'll expand my audience by promoting my newspaper column to an even bigger publication, or host workshops and enhance my group coaching and my intuition classes. These two cards feel like a direct message for me.
What is the message for you today considering the Three of Cups and the Eight of Pentacles?

To me, these cards reinforce that I'm right where I need to be. I recently got a promotion and it's stressful and I won't see any "financial rewards" until the end of month, so it's sometimes hard to keep my eyes on the prize. These cards made me smile.

Sheri, it sounds like you're about to embark on an exciting time!! Looking forward to hearing about it!

Congrats on your message and shift! I'm excited to see where this takes you.

Those cards are a perfect confirmation of the direction I've been leaning into. I've been contemplating some more "theme" oriented group coaching programs for the fall. I've also been looking at all of the past programs I've created and want to put them into e-book or e-course formates to sell online once I get my website moved to a platform where I can add a shopping cart - yes - lots of expansion and work to do :) Thank you so much Sheri for your insights.
A thought to offer you - have you consider radio???
Grateful hugs

As usual, I find something significant to take away from your Tuesday/Thursday posts.

Unfortunately, I've gotten into a bad habit of "saving" the Tuesday post to respond to later, and for the last several weeks I've missed out on the conversation. Dang procrastination!
