Skill Level: General (All)
In today’s installment of Sightsee the Tarot, we’ll be exploring Mary K. Greer’s Tarot for Your Self: A Workbook for Personal Transformation and working through journaling prompts to self-reflect on our relationship with money and what we aspire for in terms of prosperity.
We’ll then work through my reinterpretation of Greer’s Prosperity Mandala for an integrated approach to tarot journaling, self-reflection, and intense divinatory work.
For six days after casting your Prosperity Mandala, you’ll revisit it daily and when you sit with the tarot mandala, you’ll receive additional insights, new ideas, come up with solutions to problems that have been hindering your progress, work through productive brainstorming about your personal financial situation, and positively shift yourself toward greater prosperity.
A revised 35th anniversary edition of the text is forthcoming September 1, 2019 by Weiser Books under the revised title, Tarot for Your Self: A Workbook for the Inward Journey. I’m so excited about this edition, which includes a foreword written by yours truly. =)
This guided session is based on the concept of the Prosperity Mandala from Greer’s Tarot for Your Self. However, I’ve taken some significant creative licenses and diverged from her instruction so that this session could be an integration of tarot journaling, divination, and prosperity magic. I wanted to weave together writing prompts based on those found in “Clarifying Money Issues and Your Prosperity Mandala” from Greer’s book with a tarot reading that would then be turned in to the Prosperity Mandala, which would then be a combination of a tarot reading, brainstorming session, mind-mapping, and metaphysical energy work.
You’ll see that my arrangement of the cards into the Prosperity Mandala diverges from Greer’s. I did this in part to modify the mandala so it also doubles as a form of prosperity magic.
You can download an image of the mandala design I use in the video:
Go ahead and dress up the basic JPG I’ve provided. Make it “your own.” The more personalized you get, the more powerful it’ll be.
You’ll be leaving the Prosperity Mandala out for six days after the day of your reading (for a total of seven days working with these cards), and there’s energy work integrated with divinatory tarot, so some practitioners may want to augment the mandala with stones and crystals that correspond with prosperity for them. Thus, you can arrange a crystal grid around the Prosperity Mandala alongside the cards.
Your creativity is your only limitation. Expand upon the basic idea of the Mandala instructed in the video in any way you’re moved to.
Personally, I enjoy fortifying the tarot mandala formation with crystals and charmed talismans that signify prosperity to me. I noted in the video how I prefer a morning hour to do my daily journaling with the mandala. If you prefer an evening hour, light a candle and keep it burning while you write.
I found that this session helps to address some of your money shadows and then avails us an opportunity to self-reflect about our relationship with money. Every step of this guided session is tailored with precision and intention, so that it builds you toward personal empowerment and achievement of your prosperity goals.
