There are certain periods where it’s challenging, to write these columns. But I think it’s probably also more important during those times. I know a lot of people are crunched right now, and I’ve got the cards to back it up!
Today’s Tarot forecast is a 3-card spread. We’ve got the Chariot, Justice, and Death. All Major Arcana, all inverted. Le sigh!
You think there’s some pressure out there right now? You think people are uncertain and feeling lost? I sure do! Expect confusion over right and wrong, a general feeling a being out of whack, and possibly a sense of loss over a situation deteriorating. Challenges abound, no “if’s, and’s or but’s” about it.
So where’s my customary sunshine and roses spin? Because I do really believe you can (and have to) work with the energy you have on tap.
Well, the sense of focus, fairness and truth that seem so illusive now isn’t utterly inaccessible. It’s present, or we wouldn’t be getting these cards to begin with. It’s just inconstant. So the job is pulling ourselves in line with it.
Note where your zone of impact truly resides. Others do not grant or deny you happiness; others do not dictate your choices. Let go of what anyone else “should” do—ultimately they will do as they see fit, just as you will. We can influence at times, but cannot dictate. Be even-handed in your dealings, but realize the only control you can effectively exercise is self-control. That’s what you work here.
Look to where you’re feeling the pain, and skip the easy, superficial answers you’ve accepted previously. Ask, “Why? What’s behind this issue?” Do a little digging in your feelings because there’s some kind of fear or pain buried within. Protective instincts can serve us, but can also prolong difficulty if we hold on to them past their useful life span. It’s important to question the difference.
Make adjustments for YOU, to live the life and be the person you want to be; that, in turn, impacts everyone and everything else. Accept there will be challenges (because, well, there WILL be challenges) and orient yourself to doing the best you know how with them. Forgive lapses, because there will be some as well.
These are all powerful, transformative cards—inverted, we know it’s a rough ride, but the fact they’re here at all makes it clear we’re making important shifts. Stay mindful, and don’t forget to call on friends and loved ones for help sorting it out.
How you doing with changes?
