Ten of Pentacles, Page of Cups, the Hermit. Seriously? These cards? Together?? Normally, when I draw cards, I see some sort of story. This morning? Heh, it will take some doing. The best thing I can tell you is that your intuition is trying to tell you something. Stop ignoring it. Whatever is going on in your life, you’re shutting your eyes and ears to an important message and the question to ask yourself is why? Why ignore what could be so very good for you? Why turn a blind eye to the truth that’s been sitting up and begging to be acknowledged? Sometimes, we ignore the very thing we need to analyze, the thing that we need to address. When we do, it’s often because we’re afraid. Fear can be a great motivator, but it can also leave us paralyzed and today isn’t a day to be paralyzed. Today is more a day to draw back and assess your feelings, your situation, and most of all, yourself.
Now, let’s break down the cards. The Ten of Pentacles says you want a sense of permanence. The Page of Cups says new things are coming (especially on an emotional level) and that might be scary but needs to be addressed. The Hermit? The Hermit is a card of solitude. Allow yourself the time to be alone, and perhaps even lonely. That loneliness has information for you. It will help you figure out the very things you want and need. Look at it. Look at what makes you lonely in the moment. Is it a ghost of desires past, or is there something else you could be learning from it? Because if you can learn from this loneliness, well then, you’ll never better for next time.
If you keep pushing yourself in the direction of people (who may or may not satisfy the loneliness and chances are they won’t, because I’m betting it’s an internal issue that needs to be addressed) then you won’t make the decisions you need to make for your long-term wellbeing. Here’s what sucks: what’s good (or seems good) for you in the moment, is not necessarily good for you in the long run. So, consider turning your back on the shiny, pretty distractions. Instead, focus in on yourself, even if that kind of assessment scares you. Now, today, if you’re going to get information on how to proceed, on what’s best for you, it’s going to be because you stand up to some of your internal demons and tell them to sit down and hush. They won’t necessarily disappear, but at least they’ll have to take notice that you’re on to them and that eventually, you will kick them out on their rear ends.
