My Chalice Runeth Over: The Next Tarot Check-In!

You’ve all seen it coming in my previous blog posts: I’m finally a 100% self-employed indie author (and contract worker). This is the start of my first week of the work-from-home self-employed life. I’m only two days in and I have been BUSY. But the change is so worth it. August will likely be a transitional month for me as I settle in to my new work schedule, but I welcome the challenges.

But we’re not here to talk about the August transition. We’re here to unpack the July preparations for The Big Career Shift. With everything that happened in July – all the work, all the emotions, and all the stress – how did that measure up against the tarot prediction?

Now, let’s remind ourselves of what that prediction was.

JulyQueen of Chalices (Reversed): Inconstancy, frivolousness, or dishonour. You may blame troubles on others, be too easily influenced, or refuse to be ruled by your emotions.

And how accurate was it?

Very accurate.

Let’s break this down.

I think it’s fair to say that the inconstancy, frivolousness, and dishonour came from the job I just left. Although I had innitially planned to stay until the end of August, certain events took place that presented me with an opportunity/excuse to get out sooner.

I used to love that job, but major changes in the company meant that it was no longer a good fit for me. And this was confirmed once I gave my notice at the beginning of July. Whether this was done out of jealousy, spite, or any other number of reasons, I was treated very poorly after I announced my decision to leave. This made my last two weeks there absolute hell.

But maybe all of this is just me blaming my troubles on others 😛

I am so thankful that now I can move on a focus on my dream job and the career/life goals that matter the most to me. Time to write like my life depends on it!
