Even though I got a positive initial reading about the inquiry I made to a local museum/gallery about teaching or another art position, the subsequent readings I've been getting have all been fairly mixed and even discouraging. Even so, I have to believe that there is some spark of goodness from that initial reading. Perhaps it was just encouraging me to go out there looking rather than sitting on the fence.
When I did a two card spread asking whether things would go through for me to get a position at the museum through teaching or something else, I got this severe-looking duo (above). The 10 of Swords said 'no' to me and the Hierophant seemed to reflect that it was about teaching. That is my take on it. I am going with my gut which said that this is a rejection for this particular place anyway.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I still plan on going back out there and looking for other opportunities. I don't want to feel stuck or tied to a single chance. It has been more than three days since I e-mailed the curator of education at the museum and so far I've heard nothing. At least I appreciate that the cards are being straight with me.
