Welcome to the first of the Witches Magazine weekly Tarot forecasts by The Homebrew Witch. Each week, I’ll share a collective reading exploring us, our situations and the world we live in, interwoven with some of my favourite tarot tips.
It’s lovely to meet you all!
I’m Nancy, the Homebrew Witch. I’m a professional tarot reader and witch, working with clients all over the world to help them find clarity and explore their own magic.
I first discovered my love of the occult through books. I devoured stories about powerful witches, and I was desperate to have a pointy hat and join their ranks. I was pretty ecstatic when I realised I could! Now you’re much more likely to find me with a deck of cards in my hands than a broom, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What do you need to bear in mind this week?
Every week, I’ll ask different questions of the deck. I always find it’s best to keep these questions fairly broad. If they’re too narrow, you may prevent a messaging coming through that you really need.
This week I began with a really simple question: “What situations will we find ourselves in next week?” After a good overhand shuffle, I pulled the Ace of Wands.
This card indicates that there may be new beginnings for you in areas we are passionate about. This may be an exciting creative project, a career promotion or even a particularly explosive relationship. Regardless of the form it takes, there will likely be an opportunity that will really light your fire.
It may be scary to take the wand that’s offered and some of these fears are completely valid. In the biggest economic crisis since 2008, we can’t all be quitting the jobs that we need to survive to run off into the sunset after our dreams.
Some of us may need to think harder about how we can safely take that leap.
Regardless of your position in this precarious world, it may be time to face your fears and see if you can find a way to take this opportunity and make your passions work.
I then asked my deck the question: “What challenges will we face this week?” to which it replied with the reversed Magician.
You may be feeling disempowered this week to manifest your goals due to a lack of resources. I think this is something a huge amount of us are feeling right now.
Whether we’re stressed about a lack of financial resources, a lack of time, or even the mental capacity to think through the things we need to, a lot of us are missing out on the things we need to succeed.
Our society doesn’t want everyone to win and I’d encourage you to think about all the things you’ve achieved in spite of this before you are hard on yourself.
Finally, I asked “How can we overcome these challenges?”. For this card I pulled the reversed Six of Pentacles. To step into your power again, it may be time to stop giving so much of yourself away.
While giving, sharing and supporting is absolutely something we must do, we must also bear in mind that you cannot pour from an empty cup. Take time for yourself once in a while.
You may find yourself more in touch with your power again when you do.
There is excitement and opportunity ahead this week, a loss of power and the tools for its return. It may be an intense one, but hopefully with some guidance you’ll do just fine.
These forecasts are for the collective. They aren’t personal so they may not resonate 100% with you but there will always be a nugget of guidance in there.
