The reading that I’m doing this morning is for you. I don’t know who you are, how the circumstances in your life stands, or whether you will even find this reading. But I woke up this morning with the distinct feeling that someone needs this. I’m going to draw three cards for you, and these cards will be a window into your life, the people who inhabit it, and those issues that are important to you. You will recognize yourself, you will recognize the people who may show up within this group of cards; and you will know, with absolute certainty, that these cards are speaking especially to you, specifically to you, for you and you alone.
The cards: Ace/cups……3/wands……2/pentacles
You’re just beginning a new relationship, perhaps you’re even in transition yet, moving from one relationship to the next. This process can be frought with indecision, that type of second guessing that makes your movement through life feel jerky. There are times that you may even carry around a rock in the pit of your stomach. So many of life’s big changes are like that, and relationships are one of the biggest. But you will get through it. That heavy stone-like feeling in your mid-section will go away, and what seemed new and slightly scary will become routine so quickly that you almost won’t notice the transition.
In order to successfully make this transition, and in order to work towards this new relationship with hopes that it will grow into something lasting and important, you will have to work through issues of defensiveness and insecurity– the scum that’s usually left over from previous experiences. This will take time and patience, both on your part, and on the part of your new partner, or your potential partner. This can also be a measuring stick for the character of this new person in your life. They should be sensitive enough to your feelings that they respect your wishes, whatever those boundaries may be at this time.
Eventually life will come full circle, it always does…right up until the end. This is one of those things we can be sure of, just like death and taxes, as the old saying goes. The most important thing to remember is not to hinder your own freedom with your own hangups. It’s bad enough when other people impact our lives with restrictions and invisible boundaries we don’t want and didn’t ask for; but it’s even worse when we do this to ourselves. How many things in life we might never accomplish or leave unfinished, because we didn’t allow ourselves to proceed naturally. Proceed naturally now…what else can you do?
The number three is relevant to you and your life at this moment; and I feel that this has to do with the area of relationships. It’s very possible that you can’t move forward because you are still staked to one spot, to one person, or point of contact. If you don’t learn to let go, to move on, to forgive, to give up and get on with it, to slide on by to the next level…you will stagnate. Life is a series of progressions. Life is constant movement, sometimes so swift and unrelentless that it makes us dizzy. But life is never suppose to be still– at least not the type of still that prohibits new growth. Lift one foot and take that first step. The second step will be easier. I promise. It always is.
Though you may keenly feel life’s burdens at this moment, that will change. You’re at the threshold of a new day, a new dawn. Once you take that first hesitant step towards your future, the rusty cogs and wheels of life will begin turning again. They might be a little stiff and noisy at first, but the more they move, the smoother the journey will become. Sometimes it’s just getting started that’s the hard part.
You struggle with finding balance now, but your struggle is with that which will smooth out naturally, all on it’s own. Don’t fight it so much. When you do this you are actually working against your own energy. This will make you tired. The last thing I’m going to tell you, and maybe the most important, is not to take off on life’s grand adventure without a game plan, your game plan. When you start a journey, you should have a destination in mind, otherwise how will you know when you’ve arrived?
