I’m in desperate need of some tarot reading practice so – fresh from watching episode 5 of Smash last night – I thought I’d do a reading for Karen Cartwright. For those not in the know, Karen was almost cast as Marilyn for a Broadway show in the making but finally lost the part to Ivy.
Lately, I seem to try too hard and write far too much when I read so this time I wanted to try something shorter, sweeter and more free-flowing.
Karen’s totally fictitious question was:
“I’m in the chorus for an upcoming Broadway show. Everything’s great except the girl playing the lead is being such a bitch to me even when I’m trying to be nice to her. What can I do to make her like me?”
I drew three cards from the Anna K Tarot with no position meanings:
6 of Wands – The Sun – Ace of Wands
Okay, so the short answer is…
Stop worrying about whether Ivy likes you or not and focus instead on playing your part in making the production a success. You are not equals – Ivy is the star and you are part of the chorus. Your raison d’etre is to support her and make her look good. In doing so, you’ll be contributing to the success of the show, which everyone can benefit from. This in turn may lead to a new beginning or exciting opportunity for you to branch out on your own. In the meantime, look for friendship and camaraderie amongst your peers in the cast and crew.
Feel free to offer constructive criticism.
