You may feel a strong urge today to do something, go somewhere, get involved in something new, learn something or research something. Don’t dismiss this call to arms! It could be important and set you on a whole new path.
This weeks card points to a feeling of disillusionment or disappointment. Although other people may look at your life and consider that you are extremely fortunate, you’re just not feeling it yourself. The silly thing is that whatever you feel is missing may in actuality be right under your nose…..maybe hidden in plain sight. Although you are currently in a dark and somewhat depressed state of mind, all you need to do is change your perspective to see that in reality you have much to celebrate and be thankful for.
Today could require you to blend together qualities and ingredients in just the right ratio to get the results you are aiming for. Rather like baking a cake, often we need to skilfully add a bit of this and a dash of something else to get the mix just right so that it will rise in the oven. For us this will involve the elements of earth, air, fire and water and how we combine them to get the best results in our lives. Do we need more earthy pragmatism, or a few drops of fiery inspiration in order to bring our mix to life? Of perhaps we need to get our logical, rational head on, or be more compassionate and empathic. By blending different qualities in just the right amounts we can perform alchemy today.
Be careful not to cut off your nose to spite your face today. There could be conflict, or an undercurrent of hostility which you pick up on, but confrontation is perhaps not the best way forward. Try and ride out the bad vibes if you can. Tomorrow is another day and you may find that ‘the least said the soonest mended’.
Help and resources could be received from unexpected quarters, and at just the right moment today. This could be financial assistance, but it could equally be someone offering their time or advice. Alternatively, it could be that you have something that someone else requires, and are able to give it freely to help this individual out of a tight spot.
The first thing which came to mind on drawing this card today was a line from an Oasis song…..”don’t look back in anger”. It reminded me that it’s time to let go of injustices and feelings that we were wronged in the past. What’s done is done, so draw a line under it and move on. Remember that by refusing to forgive we only harm ourselves in the long run.
Play your cards close to your chest today. There is no need to reveal all of your plans to everyone. Sometimes it is completely necessary to keep some things under wraps; the disapproval or criticism from others is enough to cut off your big ideas at the knees before you even get started. Be discriminating and judicious with whom you share your fledgling ideas, and if you must reveal all, make sure it is to someone who will support and cheer you on.
You may feel a sense of urgency to break free from entanglements which have kept you mired in powerlessness and hopelessness for too long. You are coming from a dark, confusing place but know that it is possible to soar clear of all that has been holding you back and shackling you, into the clear sky of clarity and freedom. Up, up and away into the clear blue yonder!
