Trying to navigate opportunities… what to do and what to not: Ace of Wands reversed, and 10 of Cups reversed.

It’s advised I avoid investing my whole heart in one thing, as I’ve been doing… I should instead spend that energy on every pass that comes my way because it’s more likely something will match and grow out of it.

To curb myself I’ll need to stop romanticing the most glorious life possible and bring it to a level of reality. Don’t make assumptions about what hasn’t happened, and don’t believe a dream has come to pass when it is indeed not (yet) reality.

Move on to other things. Stay open to possibilities, stay factual, stay realistic.

The Rider-Waite Tarot (Pamela Colman Smith and A.E. Waite)

Advice to stay grounded and centered this week: Knight of Wands.

Loyalty to friends and passion in works. Always on the go and ready for exploration. Take on challenges with a strong will and sense of humor. Display feelings on the sleeve so everyone knows you’re for real.

Sometimes to stay balanced doesn’t mean keeping your head down. Especially if one’s nature is already as such, you need a little oomph to counter-balance it.

The Golden Thread Tarot (Tina Gong)

The Eight of Swords is about believing lies and being conditioned to a modified, fictitious version of reality.

When reversed, we are breaking free of those chains and removing the intellectual and emotional veil that has been concealing reality.

Ground and center today. Don’t trust any one person’s persepective. This is about waking up to reality. Sobriety and a thirst for truth is necessary right now.

🃏 The Aquarian Tarot (David Palladini) 🃏

Asking for an archetype to emulate to get out of a mental/emotional slump.

King of Swords.

Everything is a matter of logistics and order. Stop focusing on the “is this my life now” and start problem solving. Emotions are no longer being helpful in my mission, I should compartmentalize and develop plans to execute. Be frank and direct with people, be honest, even if at times brutal.

The Golden Thread Tarot (Tina Gong)

Queen of Pentacles.

One who is critical regarding pragmatism and the quality of things. Observing and coaching, they have a high standard for the way things work (or should work) both for themselves and others. They often put themselves in other people’s business, but just want to help.

The Rider-Waite Tarot (1910, A.E Waite and Pamela Colman Smith)

Not all plans follow through to fruition. Calculating our own destinies can be pointless especially when we work in solitude or secrecy expecting things from others.

Connecting with people is a way into control. You can manage risk by knowing your people and being up front with them. Pulling strings from behind may just leave you tangled.

🃏 7 of Swords, The Aquarian Tarot (David Palladini)

King of Pentacles reversed.

One who lets their wealth and status get to their head. Investments become self-serving. Relationships are abused as resources. Power is displayed through extravagance rather than actionable effort to serve others. Can be highly critical and compulsive. Corrupted by money.

The Rider-Waite Tarot (1910, A.E Waite and Pamela Colman Smith)

Trying to get more comfortable with my face 😳

Knight of Pentacles reversed. Productivity in decline. Daydreaming and idleness. Boredom and frustration.

When it comes to work and projects it seems like things struggle to move along. Should I wait for the path to clear itself, or should I thrust a bunch of energy into things to clear a path?

Walls are limitations to freedom; However, our energy, focus, and resources are finite. Boundaries become grounding when we reach degrees of exhaustion. The balance in this is where do walls become obstacles and where do they become self-preservation?

Can we have both? Maybe these things are negotiable?
