This week, we talk about Spongebob memes and Dungeons & Dragons.

Ben and Brian, I currently have what I consider to be the best job I’ve ever had. The money is great, I can kind of work any hours I want to, and It’s a very engaging job that lets me flex both my technical and creative skills. The problem is that the job is working for a major defense contractor here in town. I love this job, but I’m conflicted about working for a weapons manufacturer. My question is: will I find peace with this company knowing that even though I’m assisting in making weapons I am helping with national security, or should I be looking for a different career path that might not be as rewarding but, help me sleep a little better at night?

We used the Modern Spellcaster’s Tarot by Melanie Marquis and Scott Murphy for this week’s reading. It’s got a realistic art style with fun symbolism and an okay amount of representation. ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

This Week’s 3-Card Tarot Reading

The Past: EMPRESS | The Present: FIVE OF COINS | The Future: PAGE OF WANDS

Our advice: You’re getting a lot of personal fulfillment from where you’re at. The ground is fertile for you to grow. But you feel like you’re being locked out of a community who wants to see good being done. The cards say stay where you are. It’s not necessarily ideal for the world, but it’s ideal for your life, your family, and your passions.
