31 Days of Tarot 2019: Day 1

I first heard about Ethony’s 31 Days of Tarot challenge towards the end of last January. It was too late to do anything for it that year, but it sounded interesting, so I set myself a reminder to see if it would happen again. And it is: 31 Days of Tarot 2019 YouTube Community Challenge.

I figure, sure, I’ll play…with a few changes. The biggest one being that I like to write, but I feel no calling to make videos, so I’m responding to the prompts here on my blog. Plus, some (many?) of those prompts will be combined into single posts. But this first post can stand alone.

Day 1: 2019 – Reading – Energy – Major Lesson

Knight of Swords and Ten of Coins tarot cards

Energy: Knight of Swords

Oh, there’s energy here. To me, the knights fit the description, “if all you have is a hammer, everything begins to look like a nail.” So the Knight of Swords is the conviction that if I can just analyze the problem—any problem—correctly, I’ll find a solution. But the Knight of Swords isn’t a consistent energy. I know from past experience I don’t have a lot of patience for problems. If I can work out what’s wrong quickly and come up with a solution, and it works, that’s great. But if the issue drags on, or the analytical approach isn’t the best way to deal with it, I stress out. That could turn into an awful lot of nervous energy.

Major Lesson: Ten of Coins

I suppose I can tell you about a year from now what the lesson actually was. At this point, I’m relying on intuition and guesswork. With the Ten of Coins, I’m thinking this may be a year of fulfilling material ambitions (financial, health, etc.) and then learning how to wrap up old projects and point that zingy Knight of Swords energy towards new goals.
