Do I follow my heart or stick to my job?

Posted: December 25, 2011 by admin

It is not working out at my work place. I am doing well in the current projects. But, I strongly feel I need to do more. Maybe, study further, go and work in another country. I have been thinking about this for a year now – but I do not know whether I should take this plunge. Is this just a “feeling” that I have or do I explore this seriously?

My client is a successful project leader with a software company. Despite being intelligent and highly qualified he seemed to be running into a dead end at his work place. And the restlessness was effecting his work.

He came recommended through his company’s HR manager with whom I had done a 2 day “employee productivity workshop” and yes – through Tarot as a medium.

The core of his reading was Two of Wands. Wands represent creativity.

Two of Wands basic message is: Work is underway.  Balance between action and passivity.  Potential not fulfilled yet.  Energy, enterprise, passion, with balance.  New venture starting on firm foundation.  Many opportunities but outcomes not clear yet.  Good advice being given and received.

In general, I find the Mars-Aries connection to be the most useful one for the Two of Wands. As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries confers leadership ability. It is also characterized as being impulsive and quick-tempered. In numerology – 2 represents duality, the combing of two 1’s, the concept of self and other.

When The Two of wands appears prominently in the reading with the corresponding cards indicating a similar tone, you need to ask yourself the follo:

Are you feeling in charge?
Is your sense of self-empowerment so thorough that you feel like taking a gamble?
Are there area’s where you are accomplished and are ready to go to the next level?
Do you wish to embark on a new project or enterprise?
How could you take this pioneering spirit and apply it to your life to achieve a new level of success?
Do you believe in yourself and that you are deserving of abundance in your life?

You have already come so far but now you feel it is ready for a change, this time with your long-term future in mind.
You may be considering overseas travel, further education or a major career change at this point in order to expand your learning and development, and to grow your horizons beyond your immediate environment.

With careful planning, and a moderated approach, you will set yourself up for success in the future.

The Twos in Tarot often represent decisions of some sort. In the case of the Two of Wands, you are making a decision between sticking with what you know, or expanding your horizons and taking a risk.

You know that the world has to offer you something ‘bigger’ or more meaningful, yet you are also aware that in order to maximise on this opportunity, you must leave your familiar grounds.

Even though you have already invested a lot into your current circumstances, for you to be able to grow and to maximise your potential, it is imperative that you step out into a new world and explore your options.

It may take some courage to take the first step but this card gives you the confidence of self-knowledge. You know what your goal is, what your creative process is directing for you, and you are confident in its eventual fulfillment.

Go ahead and explore the world.

    Three cheers for clarity! I\’m glad you got such a clear answer and are honoring it Anisha. As I read, I sensed that this is true for both of us:\”you have been preparing for some changes in your life, possibly subconsciously, and are getting ready to more fully commit to your new direction.\” love and blessings…

    Lovely Anisha, I really couldn\’t agree more. Beautifully simple. I am a ardent fan of your YT videos as well.

    Thank you

    When we see someone suffering anxiety, fear and despair, or being depressed, we long to take their suffering away from them. However, we shouldn\’t feel that it\’s our duty to make the person better, and that if they don\’t get better that we have failed. We can give support and encouragment, we can give love and comfort, we can listen and try to understand, and all this can help the person. But it\’s the person who has to decide to change.
