It is critical today to get our stuff together, wrap up our preparations and make up our mind or organize our affairs in such a way that we are ready for the ‘big day’ – it’s not only Black Friday weekend, but also Thanksgiving in the U.S. For us in retail it is quite a struggle to manage the additional merchandise sent our way and to get it out on the floor. We are crazy busy and conditions are often rather chaotic with a backroom stocked up to the roof. Space – whether to move in or to stock/fill – is scarce and some of the rules or daily routines and procedures are temporarily abandoned in order to be able to deal with this event. Outside of the box thinking is required and so is improvisation. Everybody is looking for great sales – either to ‘score’ a few desired items for a good price or to have a huge turnout and high sales rates. In the U.S., families gather and celebrate in big style. Many have to travel long distances to join the festivities. Appropriately, Mercury will make ingress to Sagittarius later tonight, heralding a period of extended and far-reaching connectivity as well as increased flexibility and mobility, when we think bigger and open our mind to broader vistas and foreign concepts or viewpoints, travel a lot and communicate with a wider circle of people in a purposeful and meaningful way and when we focus on abundance, expansion and growth. My friend Tracy was so nice to take me to the Brick after work. However, the couch I wanted to look at was not on display. Same old story. Not sure right now what to do or how to proceed. This is so much in the sense of the 2 of Swords in the position of the environment in this lunar month’s tarot spread. So far, it looks as though I’ll “only” buy the electronic gadgets.
Tarot card of the day is the “Page of Wands”, suggesting that we can expect the unexpected today. Change is encouraged. We’re rediscovering our purpose and source of vitality, experiencing creative restlessness and enthusiasm for which we need to find an outlet. Thus, we’re positive and spontaneous, excited about the possibilities, step into the limelight, are passionate about our projects and take the plunge. There are new possibilities, calling upon us to express ourselves from our heart.
