((The Lightseer’s Tarot by Chris Anne AND Wisdom of the Oracle by Colette Baron-Reid))
Be honest with yourself first.
Why? Because if you can’t do that, you can’t do anything with authenticity.
When your mind wanders, where does it go? Are they all “good” memories? Probably not. Are they all “hurtful” reminders? I certainly hope not but for some people, negative pops up most vividly, usually because it is unresolved. For me, this is what shadow work is all about – facing what is unresolved in the past, accepting your own part, asking for forgiveness.
NOTE: When I ask for forgiveness (Forgive my frailties. Forgive my hubris. Forgive my ignorance. Etc.), though I speak it out loud to The Universe, I am predominantly speaking to myself. A big part of being honest with yourself is accepting your responsibility, and forgiving yourself. Not easy but too important to ignore.
And now, to the cards!
THEME: BLESSED. Unforeseen gifts and blessings – keep your eyes open, be ready to receive. An attitude of gratitude will never go amiss.
INFLUENCE: Queen of Pentacles. Use your resources wisely but with a generous heart. Honor your attitude of gratitude this giving season.
INFLUENCE: The Devil (15). Distractions can provide needed breaks in our busy lives. CAUTION: This is a fine place to visit but you absolutely cannot live here! Do not settle in – have some fun and move on – you’ve got important work to do!
STRATEGY: Eight of Swords. Accept responsibility for your part of the situation – you got yourself into it, get yourself out. It may be difficult but it is not impossible – time to toughen up. You can do this, so get to it!
BE REAL. BE RAW. BE POWERFUL. YOU GOT THIS!
