First I am excited to announce that the Grimalkin Tarot has launched on Indiegogo and we are almost 50% to the goal! Unlike my other projects, this one has a fixed funding which means if I don't hit the goal then the project does not get created—however it is looking very promising for the Grimalkin Tarot to be a success! Here is the link to campaign if you would like to check it out or help bring the cat deck to life :-) https://igg.me/at/grimalkin/x/17661790#/
Now on to today's reading!
Someone or something is going to call upon you to stand up and be the adult in the room. This may cause a bit of discomfort, especially if you are in the mood to play hermit.
The Hermit in the present position points to where we are today. This is the energy that will feel being in the most comfortable softest pair of sweatpants around, and because of this, it may be hard to get up and get dressed. You may convince yourself that it is all in the pursuit of gathering information, but in reality, it may have more to do with your inner-child being nervous or uncertain of what to expect.
The Emperor arrives as the external influence, telling me that there is going to be a situation coming that will require you to put on your big kid pants. With the Emperor energy supporting you, you will feel confident and will be able to get a clear vision for what is expected. Sure the Emperor can come across as a strict father figure, but he also brings with him security, stability, and support. You won't fall down, but you will be held accountable for taking action.
The Six of Cups in the advice position brings the message that although playtime is vital for creating a life of harmony and balance, too much kowtowing to your inner-child can leave you unprepared to take on basic adult tasks, let alone the tough ones.
Let the Emperor be your guide right now as this energy will bring you an opportunity to put the wisdom gained while being a hermit to good use.
