Balance new projects with present duties: Weekly influences for August 17th, 2015

Two of Coins, Magician, Reversed Nine of Batons

Week of August 17, 2015


Two of Coins

The Magician

Nine of Batons (reversed)



Balance. Caution. Due diligence: All of these things are necessary when starting a new project, whether it’s by yourself or with others.

This week, obstacles will affect your ability to balance new tasks with present duties. The two of coins tells us that new projects are the theme of the week, from universities beginning classes, to children heading back to school, to parents finally having the time to initiate their own projects. The attic awaits…

While the Magician is in the zone and actively creating their new reality, they are influenced by the obstacles and cautions represented in the Two of Coins and reversed Nine of Batons. The Magician is marshaling all of their resources for their new venture, their work begins to consume their focus completely. A brilliant creator can do great things, but needs to remember to balance current and new ventures.

Partners experiencing health issues, delays, situations that create new troubles and disaster are possible. The delicate balance that was achieved could fail, delaying everything, not simply the latest venture.

How do we overcome this?

Due diligence: proper research and evaluation with a sprinkling of caution, combined with the creativity and flexibility that you possess will aid you. Rushing in to a new project with all enthusiasm, without balancing the rest of your duties, is not the answer. Discipline, patience, and self-control will win the week for you.

Realistic time tables and workloads, from a management perspective, will prevent the disasters and delays cautioned against in the reversed Nine of Wands. Expect and plan for obstacles, take into consideration those of your team who are pointing out possible problems. Dismiss their input at your peril.

Until next week.
