Spread-A-Day: Day 1

I’m not participating in the Spread-A-Day Challenge (though if they do something like this again, I probably will), but I saved the prompts. So you’ll see me do Spread-A-Day posts even if it is long past.

What conflict am I facing in my life?

21-xxi-the-world

XXI – The World – completion, integration, transformation

This conflict is one of a spiritual nature.  I have only recently begun to study the Tarot and spells and crystals.  While I am loving the fact that I am learning all of this new information, I am afraid that it will just be another phase, just another something that I really like for a while and then forget about.

The word ‘transformation’ resonates hugely here, because as much of a beginner as I am, I can already feel myself transforming into something else, something more.  I want to be able to do this for the rest of my life as I have never found such satisfaction before.  But I also don’t want to get bored with it.

What solution can I find?

Knight of Cups – romance, charm, imagination

I need to listen to my heart more.  Make decisions based on emotions rather than logic.  I am very good at compartmentalizing things, especially my emotions because emotions are messy and confusing and they’re big and they’re loud and they’re in-your-face and they overwhelm me.  I need to stop nit-picking at myself, my acne, my weight, and start loving myself unconditionally.  I need to let go of what I think I should be and just accept myself for who I am and how I look.

The Knight of Cups also represents the action of taking your imagination out into the ‘real’ world.  I’m getting a sense that I need to stop being comfortable with using my Tarot for friends and myself (aka you can do all the readings you want for your friends until the cows come home…) but sooner or later I must and will take my talent out to where other people want it.

What will be the resolution of making this change?

8 of Wands – speed, action, movement

Once I make the decision to accept myself and my flaws, and once I decide to take my talent into a more populated area (i.e. fairs, the internet…), then my transformation into a whole new spiritual me will take off like a rocket.  I will advance leaps and bounds because I am letting other people teach me every time I interact with them.  I will leave imprints on the people who come to see me but they will leave an even greater impression on my soul.
