This month’s Tarot Circle is from none other than me! (Yes, it is possible to read Tarot for yourself!)
As with all Tarot Circle posts, I’ll provide my initial thoughts and then I’ll hand it over to you, the reader, to use the comments section to write what you see.
Remember there’s no right or wrong and you don’t have to be an experienced Tarot reader to comment.
I have just finished writing the first draft of my new eBook which aims to help Tarot beginners learn to read Tarot with a series of lessons and hands-on activities. I have also received some great feedback from a number of volunteer reviewers and am in the process of making the eBook even better before it is released.
So, the question I have for the Tarot is, “What do I need to do to make my eBook successful?”
My Tarot Reading
I chose a three card Tarot reading because I wanted to keep it simple. I am a strong believer in sticking to just a few cards rather than going all out with a complicated spread.
I didn’t have specific positions, either. Instead, I simply used the three cards as a guide.
The cards I drew were:
My Interpretation of My Tarot Reading
The Ace and the Three indicate that this is a project that is in its early stages. By the time you’ve written a 130 page eBook, it certainly doesn’t feel like the early stages, but I understand that writing the first draft of the eBook is really just Step 1. There are many more steps to follow!
The two reversals suggest that perhaps there’s something I’m missing or there are possible delays around the corner. Certainly with a Mercury Retrograde coming up from July 14 to August 7, I do need to be mindful of when the best time is to release the eBook. I may also need a couple of “Plan B’s” up my sleeve so that I am prepared in case there are delays.
The Ace of Pentacles reversed in particular suggests that no matter how much planning I do, there still seems to be a spanner in the works, and my plans may not come off as I may have hoped. I may be excited about the launch, only to find out that it just isn’t possible to launch in the way I had hoped. So, with this card, I am now very mindful of doing some extra planning and double-checking those plans to make sure they are feasible.
With the Three of Pentacles, I am advised to partner with others from different backgrounds, experience levels and knowledge in order to complete this project in the best way possible. I feel that this is a confirmation of what I have done already. I sought the help of fourteen generous volunteers who have now provided some excellent feedback that will further improve the eBook. I also feel that this card is encouraging me to partner with other Tarot experts and bloggers to help promote the book. I suspect that I will receive even more help than expected and there’s no harm in asking for help and support!
Finally, with the reversed Knight of Cups, I do need to be aware that I do not become caught up in the excitement and the romanticism of releasing a new eBook. It’s important not to get carried away with ideas and possibilities, and instead I need to be realistic and I need to keep my feet firmly planted on the ground.
Overall, I feel that I’m on the right track by seeking the advice of others in finalising the eBook and I would be wise to continue this approach during the launch. I need to make sure I have water-tight plans for the release of the eBook, or that I have a few back-up plans in case things don’t go the way I have intended. And finally, I need to keep a realistic perspective and not get too carried away with possibilities. I have other commitments that I will need to balance with this launch.
