Tarot Reading: On continuing to blog...

As I shared on Friday, I've been seriously considering closing my blog, since I'm feeling sort of 'eh' about the work it takes to keep it up. And yet, that doesn't feel quite right to me, so I decided to give myself a tarot reading about what to do.

I used the Biz Spread created by New Age Hipster and the Ostara Tarot deck, consulting my two favorite tarot books right now, Melissa Cynova's Kitchen Table Tarot and Jessa Crispin's The Creative Tarot.

Essentially, to my surprise, I think this reading is telling me not to quit! I'm a little fuzzy on some of the cards, but what jumped out to me was this sense of waiting, needing more time, and rejuvenating.

The first card, about where one's business is at, is the 7 of Coins. Crispin interprets sevens as determining what we really want, and 7 of Coins about not rushing to harvest/call it quits. That really struck me because while I've been thinking I'm being honest with myself, it may be that I'm just rushing an incubation period!

The fourth card, about what is blocking the business, is the 7 of Swords. (More 7!) Even without looking at either book, I felt like I could easily interpret this card: it's all about me coveting, feeling envy, and/or comparing myself to other blogs/bloggers. And is that what I really want? Of course not!

I'm having to sit with this reading but ultimately, I'm quashing these thoughts of quitting. And of course, the comparing. I do this for everything in my life, and it never ends well.


  1. Decision tools. This was a surprising one for me but if it works why not.

  2. Aw yay, I am glad you are not quitting blogging just yet! I am starting a new dumb little thing for Sundays on the blogs, and I would be sad if you just missed it. :p (It's dumb.) (You'll probably think it's dumb.) But regardless I am glad you are sticking around for a bit, friend. I love hearing about what you're doing and reading.
