If you chose Card 1:
Essential Meanings - Motives driving intention; the power of knowing the "why."
There is great power in understanding your motives right now. The Oracle asks you to be very clear about why you're asking this question, looking for this answer, behaving in this way, and, most important, making this choice. Knowing your "why" is the key the fulfillment. When you are clear about it, intention will then be a magnet for miracles. Motives define the nature of your experience - when you think about something, feel it, and then act on it. This invisible "why" is the life-force energy within the seed, which brings it to life and hold the potential for growth.
We don't always know why we engage in our relationships in the way we do, mostly because our feelings aren't always logical. Now is the time to recognize whether you are being triggered by someone else, or if your behavior is motivated by unresolved issues in the past. When you ask yourself, "Why am I feeling like this?" and "Why did I say that?" and spend some time in introspection, the answers may be surprising. Listen to the messages from your intuition, from the knowing deep within you. What it tel you about yourself and others? In the end, life is all about being loved. Miracles, and a deep understanding of your needs and how to get them met, are being buried treasures of the "why." Uncover them by posing the most powerful question you can ask yourself and your partner today: "Why?"
Knowing the motives behind your career and creative ventures is the ticket to your greatest success. It's time to ask yourself some probing questions. Are you driven by a desire to serve? Does your prosperity impact the greater good? When you envision your most prosperous life, are you guided by a sense of purpose or by a need to make money, acquire things, save for the future...or all of these? No motive is bad or good, but having agendas hidden from yourself will lead to disappointment and possibly failure. Be clear about why you want the things you do. If the motives are true, accept them. If they are not, change them so you can step into your extraordinary life.
Sometimes subconsciously denying the truth may drive you toward a specify outcome that actually aligns with an intention hidden from your awareness. For example, you may want to be prominent in your profession, but your desire is not really about sharing your talents but making yourself feel better, because fame would cause people to admire and approve of you. Or you may want to reunite with the partner who rejected you because you believe that your love continues to be strong, but deep down what you really desire is to have the last word with that person. Now is the time for deep soul-searching of the "why" that drives your choices. What you uncover will set you free and bring you ever closer to the happiness you seek.
If you picked Card 2:
Essential Meanings - Forgiveness; making amends; healing after arguments
Each time we are hurt and allow the hurt to pass through us without understanding and integration, we accumulate an unwanted burden. This keeps us chained to the very things we need to heal: the pain, the memories, the echoes of resentments, and the arguments that we rehearse over and over. Now is the time for mending rifts, healing wounds, and letting go of old hurts in order to reclaim your power. Now is the time to forgive, to release, to make peace, and to make amends to others. Set yourself free.
You've come to a place where forgiveness is necessary if you're to move forward. Separate or together, you and the other person are still experiencing the effects of a hurt that is impacting everything you do - even if you're not aware of it. The energy needs to clear. What must you do to bridge this gap? Closing your heart is not the answer. You have the power to heal this wound. Ask yourself, What would Love do? Only good will come of forgiveness and an honest redress.
Everyone makes mistakes, especially when you want something very badly. You may come to realize that in chasing after a pretty, shiny thing, you lost sight of long-term, sustainable prosperity. Sometimes you make choices that look good at first but ultimately lead to loss or failure. It's time to forgive yourself and others. Don't blame anyone else. You get to start again, wiser and more mature. The journey to true abundance can be bumpy. Make amends to anyone you may have hurt along the way - especially yourself. Forgive those who may have taken advantage of you. Let go, and learn from this. You are now that much closer to achieving the kind of prosperity that really fulfills you. Nothing is every lost or waster when you view it from this perspective.
Heartbreak is a strange healer of souls. Our grief strips away our masks and loosens our tight hold on our separateness, where we view ourselves as "I" and the world as "it". Loss allows us to see ourselves as part of a larger scheme, opening us up to sympathy, empathy, and dependence on others in the moment when we can't hold ourselves together. And it leads us to become one with the greater whole again. Pain and suffering is part of life, and none of us will be immune to it. Can you view this loss, this pain, this dissonance, as a way back to Source? Let your sorrow break your heart wide open. You will never be left behind. You are loved - now more than ever - by Spirit, who does not want you to feel alone. One day you will look back and know this truth.
If you were attracted to Card 3:
Come to the Edge
Essential Meanings - Courage, taking a leap of faith, overcoming fear and accepting risk
Facing the unknown is the only choice you really have right now if you to progress. It's okay to be afraid. Now is the time to take a risk that is not calculated - to feel the exhilaration as you ready yourself for a leap of faith. Spirit is present, so let go of fear. You are called to express your true self. Listen to your hear and soul, not your head. Come to the edge and discover that you can fly. You just step into the unfamiliar so that you may find your miracles.
It is scary to be truly intimate with someone, to allow him or her to see all of you, especially the parts that you have kept hidden and protected. Now is the time to take that risk and let yourself be seen – truly seen. It is important that you speak up, voice what you need, state who you are, say what you hope for. This is not the time to play it safe but to take a leap of faith. You will be glad you did. If you are seeking a relationship, the same applies. Take one step toward the gods and they will deliver what you truly desire.
If ever there was a time for you to take a leap of faith into the unknown, it is now. This is the perfect moment to take a big risk. The unknown is the only choice now, and if you come to the edge, you will discover treasure beyond your wildest dreams. Allow your courage to lead you in spite of your fears. You don’t need to know the exact for form what you are going for. The essence is much more powerful, and Spirit has a way of delivering an even better version of prosperity than you could imagine. Take that step. The results will be amazing.
Fear is leading the way into places you don't need to go. Most of what you fear at the moment is an illusionist stemming from an old belief that isn't even true. Now is a time for courage. You will not be lost at sea; you will not watch everyone else get why you want while you are left and alone and unloved - oh, the drama of it all! False Evidence Appearing Real is hovering over you. The more you dwell on fear, the more real it will become. Ask yourself, Who in me is afraid? Love that part of you. Ask, is this true and real right now? The answer, most likely is no. Give yourself a hug. It's okay to be scared. Courage must be summoned. In spite of your fear, even when you're not feeling confident, Spirit will always catch you.
