I wanted to pull some cards for myself this morning, I was hoping for a little guidance over the next month or so and I thought I’d share the reading because it felt like the advice was meant for more than just me.
Underlying Energy: The Moon
How appropriate that my only major appeared here. My wife and I have been sorting through some Big Stuff, facing some of our worst fears about the path we’re on right now. And it’s felt scary and tense. But we’re coming out the end of the most intimidating month thus far. And we’re doing okay.
If you’ve been feeling a lot of uncertainty lately it’s because you’ve been sort of fumbling around in the dark a lot and things look more frightening in the dark. Problems loom larger and things are more scary than they would be in the light of the sun. Time to channel that little black cat who looks down into the water and sees the mighty panther that lies within her. Own your inner witch and take control and you’ll be able to see by the light of a full moon instead of inching your way around by touch.
Current Situation: Eight of Swords
Being tied up and feeling like you can’t get out of the situation when really those binds aren’t even tied and you could slip them.
There are tools at our disposal, but we need to open our eyes and look clearly and objectively at the true situation. You might be surrounded by sharp swords, but if you take off the blindfold you can see that it’s not so hard to escape. In this deck the witches tools, her hat and broom, are right outside that circle of swords (a circle of air).
I see a message in here to embrace our identities as well. The witch has been stripped of hers and it’s rendered her powerless in this card. Be who you are and play to your strengths. You are AWESOME, and no one should deny your right to be your best self, no matter what that looks like. ❤
Something to Release: Seven of Cups
Don’t be so dazzled by all the choices before you that you can’t make a decision.
My wife and I have been weighing choices on our life path lately. Is what we’re doing working? Do we continue? Do we seek something else? I think this card is an encouragement to stay the course. It’s working, but it’s still always going to be work. And that’s okay. If we’re tight now, we’ll have greater appreciation for the abundance that will come later.
Make the choice, and trust that you’ve made the right one.
Something to Reach for: Four of Pentacles
Now isn’t the time to spend recklessly. Whether you’re spending your money, your time, your love, don’t go wild. I see a person protecting their savings. And for us right now, money is tight, we need to be really careful how we choose to spend it and where. In this card the door is locked and barred with golden leaves and iron bars. There is wealth here, but it must be carefully guarded.
However, try not to stress over it. Stressing out about guarding this is going to cost you in health. So be careful, but also use your resources wisely, this is conservation and not preservation. Conservation is using a resource sustainably as much as possible while preservation is maintaining something exactly as it is.
Looks like another while of our strict budgeting is in our future.
Interestingly enough, the cat is looking for a way out. Or maybe she’s watching the circling storm clouds outside. You never quite know with cats 🙂 It’s part of their mystery.
No wands in this spread, maybe I should be looking for a way to inject a little more passion into our lives. When budgets are tight we feel stressed and worn out. I’ll have to think of some ways to add that fire back into things and give us some fun.
Speaking of which, because we wanna be cool Instagram kids (XD), we learned how to make slime Tuesday night and I made some imperfect sparkly slime. Always room for improvement, but it was fun. Want to try it yourself? Some Slime Recipes.
