So I need to listen to my heart, nurture my inner dreams and desires and allow myself to simply feel what I feel. That should be easy. Actually all smart-aleckyness aside, I think the Queen of Cups is reminding me that one way to chase away gloominess is to focus on things that bring me joy and make me happy. It sounds rather easy and in reality it should be but sometimes the easy things are the ones we lose site of the most.
So what brings me joy? Reading, cooking, fashion (or perhaps style is the more accurate term), dancing. I’ve been focusing on my wardrobe. I desperately need to update it and it’s also time to release certain pieces I know I’ll never wear again (such as the two suits I bought when I thought I’d be pursuing a very different life path). I want to simplify things and find a few good pieces that will last me rather than lots of cheap crap that wears out quickly.
I’ve also realized that some of the things I love (my Tarot decks) need some pruning. I had manage to acquire a number of decks that are lovely to look at but with which I feel no connection. I can admire their loveliness without being touched by it. In some cases I never really connected with the deck and I’m finally admitting that and in other cases it’s just that my tastes have changed. Regardless of why, I get a sense of freedom and lightness when I release these decks to the universe (or someone else who will love them). I’m just too burdened down by stuff. It’s time to unburden myself a bit at a time.
