Sunday’s Planning Day–so, of course, let’s pull a card!
Sunday, July 9th, 2023

It’s Sunday, which is my planning day. Before I begin rejiggering my calendar, I like to pull a single tarot card from my favorite deck while asking what I should expect from this coming week. Last week’s Temperence card was exactly right. I held steady, worked hard, and I finished the darn book. This week, I have the Ace of Pentacles.

First, I examine the card and let my intuition tell me its meaning. Here’s Poseidon, ruler of the seas. Remember, he and his two brothers divided the realms. Zeus took the heavens, Hades the underworld, and Poseidon the seas. What else is important about the picture? See the grapes? They always seem to represent food and wine—a bit of celebration. Which fits for me, since I’ll have a book coming out on Tuesday! Plus, he’s holding a big golden pentacle. I’ll take that to mean I’ll get a nice payday. Not huge because, hey, it’s a single pentacle, but the card is telling me that my work will be rewarded. I should enjoy the fruits of my labor!

Let me check the book (because when I get into the numbered cards, I’m not up on all their meanings!). Ha! It tells me that there’s the “possibility of material achievement”—woot. So, I used many more words to describe what it meant, but I was right.

Nice to know, but what does that auger for this week? I can’t just eat grapes and drink wine. Guess I’ll head to my calendar and figure out how much work I have to complete to get to where I need to be by month’s end.

Do you ever reflect on your upcoming week? What helps you keep everything “on track?” Do you keep lists? A calendar? Do you look for guidance from something “otherworldly” (pray, tarot, meditate)?

    Nope. I look at my calendar for the tasks of that day. Maybe reflecting on the whole week would be better.

    Anna! I was a professional project manager in my prior life. I always have a long-range plan, then focus on the month’s priorities, then gauge what I have to do in the coming week to keep on track. Isn’t always smooth sailing, but with my mind, I have to have it on paper or I’ll lose focus.

    I do a basic “plan” at the beginning of the week and then adjust daily. I actually have a spiral notebook I update at the end of each day to keep it all straight.

    I write out a daily task list on a Sunday for the coming week.
    Like you, I also pull a card from my energy oracle card pack to see how my week is guided.

    I love that I’m not the only one who doesn’t breeze through life without making a list of some sort. 🙂

    Deb! I love the ritual of pulling that card! Glad I’m not the only one.
