Are you taking the opportunities that life presents you?

Life is for living. You have the opportunity to do and be whatever you want; to make change, to make a positive impact, to live life to the full.

Life is intelligent. The organisational intelligence of the universe is always presenting you with opportunities that will grow you towards your greatest potential.

But if you ignore those opportunities that life puts in front of you, then the quality of your life is going to suffer. You’re likely to feel like you’re not growing, that you’re stagnating, and you’ll probably feel pretty frustrated that you’re not where you know you could be.

So in today’s video I’m asking the tarot cards “What opportunity in front of me have I not yet taken?”

As ever, choose one card intuitively of the three, or feel into all the messages to see what resonates.

Let me know in the comments if anything speaks to you today.

What opportunity in front of me have I not yet taken?


 Card number one : Judgement

Unlocking your potential through taking opportunity - Judgement

Guidance to help you discover opportunity

If you intuitively picked this card, or the Judgement card resonates with you, then it might mean that an opportunity is close to you that may lead to life-changing circumstances and personal growth.

This might be something you’ve been conscious of, maybe you’ve only felt it intuitively, or maybe you’ve even been avoiding or ignoring an important decision or opportunity that could lead to a significant change in your life.

The imagery on the card is of a resurrection scene, with an angel blowing a horn in a call to awaken the people from their coffins below. It’s a reminder that after death there is always a rebirth, and with the angel above being in full colour while the people are greyed out, it suggests that by following a higher calling it will bring more vibrancy, vitality and colour into your life.

So possible meanings in response to the question, “What opportunity in front of me have I not yet taken?” might be…

If you’re currently at a crossroads in your life and in the process of deciding which way to go, the Judgement card urges you to slow down, listen to your inner voice and trust your intuition… but also to think things through, so that your decision is a full evaluation from your mind, body, heart and soul, because all of these are needed to guide you towards the path that is right for you.

It also offers advice to reflect on your past actions and choices, and to consider how they have led you to where you are today. Now might be the time to reassess your values and priorities and let go of any old patterns, beliefs, habits or relationships that are no longer serving you in order to make room for new opportunities and experiences.

If you’re feeling a calling to do something, this card suggests that you should listen to your inner guidance and follow your heart. It might involve taking a leap of faith and embracing new challenges or opportunities that are of your comfort zone, but trust that you have the inner resources and strength to make the most of this. It could lead to a whole new chapter in your life filled with greater fulfilment and purpose.

Ultimately, the Judgment card is a reminder that you have the power to create your own destiny and that it’s never too late to make a positive change in your life. It encourages you to trust in your inner guidance and to have faith in your ability to overcome any obstacles that may arise.


Card number two: The Wheel of Fortune

Unlocking your potential through taking opportunity – The Wheel of Fortune

Guidance to help you discover opportunity

The Wheel of Fortune Tarot card is a powerful symbol of change, cycles, and the ups and downs of life, and is a reminder that greater forces outside of human control are at work here.

As a response to the question, “What opportunity in front of me have I not yet taken?” it might suggest that you’re facing a turning point or an important decision that could have a significant impact on your future. It could be something you’re looking forward to, or it may be something that you’ve been hesitant to pursue due to fear of uncertainty or lack of control over the outcome.

This card is a reminder that Greater forces outside of human control are at work here. The wheel is always turning and life is in a constant state of change, made up of both good and bad times, and it’s something that no individual on earth can avoid, no matter what one’s position in life is. 

So when you have good moments in your life, make sure that you enjoy them to the fullest, because what goes up must always come down. The same is true in reverse – when you are in a bad situation, things will eventually become better again. 

The Wheel of Fortune brings a message that because life is constantly changing, opportunities are always presenting themselves, so it encourages you to be open to new experiences and to embrace the unexpected twists and turns that life may bring.

Another suggestion that this card brings is that you may need to take a risk or make a bold move in order to seize the opportunity that is in front of you as it is through these experiences that you can learn and grow. This may involve stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something new or different.

The Wheel of Fortune is also known as the Wheel of Karma, and as such it reminds us that what goes around comes around, so if you are kind and loving to others then you will receive that energy back, and likewise if you are mean and unkind then that’s what will return to you. So be mindful and take the opportunity now to send out positive vibes because something good could be just around the corner for you.

The Wheel of Fortune can suggest that luck will play a role in your success in some way, but ultimately its message is that you’re the one who is responsible for creating your own destiny. So it encourages you to take action and to have faith in yourself and your abilities.

Overall, this card is a reminder that life is constantly in motion and full of opportunities and challenges, and that the key to success is to stay open, adaptable, and willing to take risks. It encourages you to trust in the journey and to embrace the unknown with a sense of curiosity and excitement, and to have faith that everything will work out in the end, even if it doesn’t seem like it at the moment.


Card number three: The High Priestess

Unlocking your potential through taking opportunity – The High Priestess

Guidance to help you discover opportunity

The High Priestess Tarot card is often associated with intuition, secrets, and hidden knowledge. She is connected with the Divine Feminine and the seasons and cycles of the moon. She encourages you to trust your instincts and listen to your inner voice, as it may be guiding you towards the opportunity you’re meant to take. 

Having her appear in response to a question about an untaken opportunity, she might be suggesting that there is an opportunity here for you, but that you’ve been overlooking it because you’ve only seen it at the surface level and haven’t recognised how beneficial it could be for you. 

Being able to see its full benefit requires a deeper level of understanding or awareness than you currently possess and so you need to look deeper within yourself or into the situation to discover what you’re missing. 

So go beyond the surface level of any opportunities that are being presented to you to uncover hidden information or insights that could help you make a more informed decision. As you investigate, trust your intuition to guide you towards the right decision.

There could be  more to the situation than meets the eye, and it’s also possible that divine timing may play a part as to when the opportunity will show up, or when to take it.

The High Priestess also suggests that the opportunity in question may be related to your spiritual or creative path and will require you to connect with your intuition, imagination, and inner wisdom to fully understand its potential to make the most of it.

Ultimately, the High Priestess is a reminder to trust in and stay attuned to your inner wisdom, and to be patient and receptive as you navigate your situation. She encourages you to approach things with curiosity, and an open mind. By doing so, you may uncover new opportunities and insights that you hadn’t considered before, or maybe it will lead you towards an opportunity that you haven’t yet taken.
