If you selected Card 1:
Final Step - You are almost there. This is the final stretch as your journey is near completion. Although you are weary with your energies and inspiration low, you are being called to dig deep and summon the concentrated juice tat lies deep within. Cast off any doubts and fear that may be entering because of exhaustion and call on the reason why you chose this path. Connect with the higher parts of you that see the grander vision. You will reap the rewards of your effort. The truth is that you are birthing each and every moment. Yet sometimes there are larger cycles that incorporate so many unexpected twists and turns that it can at times seem momentous and frightening. You may feel scattered, uncertain, flitting from this to that, with seemingly no thread of continuity that you can grab hold of. It is worth it to pause at those times, enjoy the richness and beauty of it all, and have absolute trust that this is a natural progression for your soul’s development. What is coming to fruition each and every time is more and more of the true Self that is your destiny. Your only danger is being sidetracked by old, outmoded belief systems… coming from the outside from those who may have your highest good in mind, but not necessarily at heart. People may mean well, but they sometimes do us more harm than good, by giving advice that comes laden with their own fears and limitations. Guard your dreams like tender shoots in a sudden storm right now! Don’t go around telling everyone your deepest desires, for they may just talk you right out of them. Stay true to you!
If you were drawn to Card 2:
Expectation - The expectations that you place on yourself and others restrict and constrain. Free yourself and your relationships by releasing expectation. It strangles everything, including creativity and your life force, and in turn produces resentment. Approach yourself, a relationship, or an activity with lightness and curiosity, discovering delightful aspects and element of who you are through and what you can contribute to it, rather than what you can get out of it. It is not the expectation of an action from another that is what you are seeking it is the permission of an experience only you can give yourself. Expectation is a silent killer. We expect so much sometimes, even without really realizing what that encompasses of our being. How much of our energy can be pumped into an expectation, and only to be sorely let down by people, places, things, actions, the list can go on and on. I used to allow so much expectation to suck the joy right out of my life and experiences. Don't continue to allow yourself to get stuck in this cycle. You can start shifting your own thought patterns and encourage yourself to just release the expectations you have! Get out of this emotional rut and start allowing your expectations to stop dictating how much can happen in your life. Free yourself once more.
If you chose Card 3:
Endings - This card signifies that something in your life requires closure and needs to end. This may be something that occurs voluntarily or involuntarily, however a level of participation from you is required. Whether it is you that actively closes the door, or you releasing the handle on the door that was closed of you, an ending is required and near. Although this may be a time of sadness, know that this is the circle of life and that rebirth, new growth and transformation always follow once tried has passed. Self control is the key, in regards to endings. You will be required to act from a combination of emotion and intellect, and then your relationships will be allowed to thrive and grow. Be sure that your influences are gentle and loving, even as you move forward. This was not a time for domination. This card is a reminder to come from compassion and understanding rather than anger or frustration. Now is the time for steadiness, patience, and clear thinking. Make sure that you learn how to control your emotions and embrace peace. Remember every ending harbors the opportunities of new beginnings!
