Interesting that embracing clarity does not involve an overabundance of intellect, wits or communication skills. Instead it would appear that those needs to be become something of a non-priority for me. I don’t need to be in charge. I don’t need to be leading the class. I don’t need to be goal oriented and focused right now.
Instead, like the relaxed woman on the 3 of Wands, I need to take time for tea and self-care. Even if I can only dedicate 10 minutes to myself every day that’s better than nothing. I need to stop and enjoy those little moments I can steal for myself. It’s not about becoming king of the world, it’s about being happy in mine.
This past few readings have pointed out that even in my current situation I tend to be very achievement oriented. I’m so busy looking at the map and plotting out the destination that I never look up and see the passing scenery. These cards are telling me that it’s time to knock it off and enjoy the scenery.
There is season for everything. I know that in my heart but sometimes mine mind shouts it out. It thinks it can control things if only it can figure out the pattern. I may be intelligent and quick witted about certain things but those skills aren’t very useful to me right now. Now it’s times for me to start fully embracing and exploring my more heart-centered, emotional and nurturing side. Even after several years caring for the in-laws I’m not comfortable with that side of myself. I’ve tried distancing myself from it and using my intellect to build barriers. I guess it’s time for the barriers to come down and face some truths. That’s the only way I’ll truly be clear and not confused.
