A female querent wants to know if applying for the position of “front office manager” would be beneficial for her. I decided to consult the Petit Etteilla.
Etteilla cards are traditionally read from right to left. The first card is our (preselected) significator, the Lady of ♦
The cards answer in their typical “Etteilla style”, loud and clear but with the necessary amount of drama. The 8 of ♠ speaks of “prudentia”, the centuries-old allegory for wisdom and prudence. The “family name” of the reversed King of ♠ is weakness/cowardice. The reversed 9 of ♣ refers to a gift (first name) and the 10 of ♦ brings gold. The last card in the row is the 10 of ♣, “apple of eye”. Now we just need to translate this into a comprehensible language that fits the context of the question.
Regardless of what the cards are telling us, I would say just go for it if you are interested in the job. Unless your application might compromise your current position or situation. There is nothing in this spread that advises against applying for the job. Just keep in mind that you might not end up being the chosen one. The cards are telling you to be careful because there is a certain cowardice/unfairness at play that sees the contextual gold (the job) being offered to someone who has already been favoured (apple of eye).
Nothing ventured, nothing gained, but it looks like someone else will grab the loot…
