If you selected Card 1:
Artemis - Purity The external world often seeks to civilize us - we learn to work and be productive members of society - but this often comes at the expense of our deep ourselves. We disconnect from our raw intuition and Instinct and then become disconnected from life, playing the roles we think we should rather than addressing the deeper wisdom that comes from within. Artemis's presence signifies the need for you to return to the wild and natural part of yourself, the part of you that can never be owned. You may have been acting and making decisions on autopilot rather than focusing on what you need right now in order to restore balance. You may be rather numb and tired, restless, or feeling that there is something missing. There is something missing - you! You probably have been emotionally rooted in the logic of what you can, can't, should, or shouldn't do to the degree that you are no longer sure of the direction of your life. You need to shake up your self-imposed social constraints. Most importantly, you need to take a risk, whether emotional, mental, physical, or spiritual. You must give up the part of yourself that is not listening to the deeper you. Only when you do that can you take the steps that will bring you back into alignment with your deeper nature and the part of you that will not be owned. This is the time for releasing external influences and obligations and seeking out the part of yourself that is natural and pure - the part of you that is connected to life and that knows what is right for you, the part of you that is not focused on outcomes but on the Journey of life. Here, you find all the answers, true wisdom, and joy.
If you were drawn to Card 2:
Ares - Battle Ares is here to remind you that it may be necessary for you to take a step back and see what is occurring in your life. It is dangerous to immerse yourself in the heat of battle without a sense of how and why you are there. It is equally dangerous to remain oblivious to the need for bottle when you are in danger of losing yourself and your ground. It may be necessary to fight at this time, but you must understand what you are fighting and why, in order to choose the most beneficial course of action. Fighting for what you believe to be right is very important, but standing for your truth must be more important than achieving your desired outcome. It is very important that you are not fighting just to protect or to nurture an injured ego, as proving that you are right or better is not a noble reason to fight. If that is the reason you are fighting, you need to let the injury go and focus on other opportunities in which to invest your energy. Also, be careful not to butcher your way through things and people you love. This is not the way to get things done. If passions are running high, it's important not to take out your aggression on those who love and support you. Sometimes we when we can't fight what we really are angry at, we take it out on other targets. It is time to fight - for yourself, your ground, your loved ones, or your beliefs - but don't fight blindly. You need to understand what is happening and why. Analyze your true motivations.
If you chose Card 3:
Hephaestus - Work This is a signal that something wonderful will happen when you do the work you love the most. Hephaestus is craftsman who imbues his work with love, and this is a creative time for you, so focus on crafting and creating true wonders in your life. This is not necessarily relate to just schoolwork, but also the activities, projects, and passions that you and choose to put your energy into. Now is the time to pay special attention to the inspiration you are receiving, for crafting takes a special kind of focus that requires you to be sensitive to the needs of the creation. If you understand that the creation has its own consciousness, then you must be willing to craft in service to the creation's needs rather than your own, allowing your work to be filled with magic, life, and wonder. You may need to put in a lot of hard work, but you will feel passion for and devotion to what you do. This is a magical time of crafting and building. Soon you will need to be a warrior for your work, as you take it boldly into the world.
