3CardMay: Day 9

day 9

Date: May 9th, 2015
Deck: Shadowscapes Tarot

What I Need To Know
Seven of Cups – illusions, wishful thinking, choices

I can’t tell if my fantasies are blocking my clear headedness or if my clear headedness is blocking my fantasies.  I feel I’m going to have a lot of choices coming my way soon and I need to be able to recognize them.

What I Need To Do
X – The Wheel of Fortune – patterns and cycles, a turning point, life’s threads coming together

I need to understand that things are in the works for me/because of me, but it’s all taking place “back stage.” I need to ride this world and just hold on because nothing I do is going to make these plans move faster, I need to wait until they are ready for me.

What I Need To Embrace
Four of Wands – celebrations, joy, harmony

I need to embrace life in all it’s wonderful glory. Hard work will need to be done but right now I should just dance and have fun.

3CardMay: Day 8

day 8

Date: May 8th, 2015
Deck: Shadowscapes Tarot

Yin
Four of Wands – hope, joy, “…be prepared to continue with the work that has achieved this point.”

My hard work pays off in the end and when it does it is absolutely wonderful.  I’m not one for complete reverie, though, I can still work and play at the same time.

Yang
Six of Cups – good intentions, childhood innocence, simple joys and pleasures

Seems a bit contrary to the first card, wouldn’t you say? But it makes sense to me. I love my work, I love what I do. I love seeing the animals begin to recover hours after surgery. But I’ve filled my life with mostly work these past four or five years that I don’t really have any friends outside of my job. I’ve lost sight of having fun for the sake of having fun instead of joking around with coworkers to knock off some stress.

What I Need To Develop To Stay In The Flow
Nine of Swords – inner turmoil, vulnerability, fear

I don’t think I need to develop this but rather recognize it: I am afraid of going out on my own and making new friends. I like the comfort of the friends I have, though they be but work friends. It’s hard and I want to meet new people… but I’m scared.

Mind – 9 of Cups – happiness, satisfaction

Had a few days where my mind was my own worst enemy, mainly because I think too much. But it’s calmed down lately.

Body – 4 of Wands – harmony, home

Over the years I’ve been feeling more comfortable in my own skin. And it’s starting to feel okay now, I’m learning about my body and that makes me wiser in my choices.

Spirit – Page of Swords – guardian

I am really defensive when it comes to anything that might really hurt me, as it takes a long time for me get over whatever happened. That’s not to say I’m completely closed off. I’m just really cautious.
