Spread-A-Day: Day 24

day 24

So, I’m not really keen on the whole ‘fetish’ thing, so I decided to ask about what my mom likes in regards to me.

Mom’s favorite things.
Page of Cups – sentimental, true romantic at heart

Mom likes the idea of being wooed. She wants that knight is shining armor on that sturdy stead. She is a young girl at heart, who sits in the windowsill, rests her head in her hand, and sighs deeply for the romance that comes in fairy tales.

Things she’d enjoy with me.
Seven of Wands – taking a stand, defending what you believe in

This is not about conflict, this is about conversation. She enjoys talking to me about the wonders of the world, why the world is the way it is. Injustice of other people. The hope from those who should have none, and so give to others.

Things I’d enjoy with her.
Two of Wands – influence, courage, “Now is the time to be bold”

I love looking into the future with her. Planning what I’m going to do next in my life, seeing what’s coming up on her calendar. I love knowing what each of us are going to do.

Where am I coming from?
Two of Wands – personal power, courage

I get auditory overload when I think about where you’ve come from.  Like hearing voices or noises that didn’t have a source.  But I also feel that you were recently able to learn how to control whatyou hear.  You weren’t able to turn off the background noise completely, but you know how to tune it out. It feels overwhelming.  I think you felt like had to make a choice: go mad because of every little detail you were getting, or pull yourself out and learn to deal with it.  That amount of courage to do that was tremendous, and in doing so, it gave you more confidence. It taught you that you do have the ability to control what information you receive.

Who am I?
King of Swords – strength, wisdom

I feel you draw upon your own strength a lot because not many people have what you have: that ability to feel and hear other people without them saying anything.  That ability, while you have it under control, can be very strong sometimes and break through, and you need to rely on yourself to help pull it back.  You know things you shouldn’t but you are wise enough to know when to let it go.  You are ready to help whenever you can but also know when to hold back.  It’s a fine balance between what your body is telling you and what the Universe is saying.

Where am I going?
Page of Pentacles – trustworthy, practical, lighthearted

You can do great things with your ability, and you will, but it’s not something that will effect many people all at the same time.  It’s your ability, with your knowledge of people in general, that can help individuals.  They come to you because you are a trustworthy person who is in a position/career that can take the time to help them.  They come to you with a problem, or with a desire, and with your ability, you are able to walk them through the steps of discovering what they really want.  You will do this, like the keywords say, in a practical yet lighthearted way.  I see you sitting down, one on one, and getting to the bottom of their troubles or confusions.  Then once they themselves find out the answer to their question, their faces light up.  And that’s what makes it worthwhile: seeing people’s faces light up because they found what they were looking for, and you were able to dig a little deeper for knowledge that they have without asking questions.

In each of the cards, the character is firmly rooted to the ground.  In doing your reading, I too, felt that you are someone who is, literally, down to earth.  Whether or not you know it, you use the earth as a tool to help you stay in the present.

Day 10

The part of yourself that you hide.
Two of Wands – personal power, authority, courage

I have it in me to be that independent, composed person.  I can walk with confidence, exude self-esteem.  I can be me to the fullest.

Why do you hide part of yourself? (subconscious issues)
Ten of Wands – responsibility, being held accountable, doing things the hard way

I hide that awesome person because I feel that I must earn my independence, I must be rewarded with confidence.  Growing up, I was never told words of affirmation that would have increased my confidence or self-esteem.  I am already an independent and composed person, but only because I don’t know how to be any other way so it’s very rigid.  I also feel that, while I like working hard, I like seeing my work progress, I fear that that is all I know.  I measure my growth by tangible progress. By working hard.

The good things your hidden self can bring you.
Ace of Cups – love, compassion, emotions

I will love with more of my heart.  I can extend my compassion to people, not just animals.  I will feel and embrace deeply more of my emotions.  I won’t have to be so composed all the time.

How to be whole again.
I – The Magician – originality, creativity, willpower

I need to let go this image of being the “hard worker,” of being the “good daughter.”  I need to embrace myself.  All of my quirks and all of my passions.  I still worry about not fitting in, even at work where I am shift leader, people come to me for help, I am very knowledgable in what I do.  I am studious, I like words, and strange facts that no one need know except for the fact that it’s interesting.  I read whatever I can get my hands on… And I practice magic.  I have spoken to the Goddess Artemis.  I feel the energies in crystals as if they were people.  I see more in the sky than just clouds.

I am me.  And I need to remember that.

Oh man, this spread almost made me cry because I had forgotten and buried deep down who I’ve wanted to be.  I’m glad I got a reminder.
