Cards to Live By

I was feeling down on Saturday, so I decided to pull some cards. And these cards did not miss! I mean, let me break it down:

Temperance Reversed: I have been dealing with a depressive episode for the past two months and was not treating my body right. Between stuffing my face with food and finding reasons to be angry, I was slowly slipping further away from who I was. The Temperance card jumped out of my hand because I needed to know I had to slow down and find that balance again. I needed to do some self-reflection and try to regain myself again.

The High Priestess Reversed: I used to be able to trust my intuition, but if you know anything about depression, that is the hardest thing to do. Anxiety would shoot down whenever I thought about listening to my intuition. I felt like I was out on rough seas and could not see the light from the lighthouse to let me know I was close to land. So The High Priestess told me to kick anxiety’s ass and start getting back into trusting myself.

Strength Reversed: Now, this card got me right together. I have doubted myself since March. I felt I wasn’t good enough and that one day, others would see that and mock me. I stayed in my head so much that I sucked all the strength out of me. I always think that a little setback will keep me from becoming what I see myself as. The Strength card is telling me that I need to gain my control and power back. I need to trust that I am the shit, and no one can take that away from me. My goals are for me and me only.

These cards shed light on what I haven’t been doing and why I need to stop bullshitting and get back on my grind. Okay, heavenly Spirits, I hear you loud and clear.
