My current will, as represented by The Lovers Rx, is to not focus my energies on a relationship with anyone else. I’ve already had a relationship with someone who was perfect for me and I lost him. Part of the process of learning to live without him is realizing that by the very nature of our relationship I changed for him and he changed for me. There are things I might have explored or pads I would have taken except I knew he had no interest in them. It seemed unfair to try to subject him to participate in activities he wouldn’t enjoy. He was always kind enough to extend that same courtesy to me. I think what the lovers reversed to showing is that right now my conscious intent is to learn to love myself and to reconnect with the Divine side of my own nature. Isn’t there a saying that before you can love someone else you need to learn to love yourself. I think this car is showing that my focus right now is on learning to love myself more.
The 2 of Trees suggests that my current fate is to continue exploring my creative energies and outlets. I think it will also be beneficial to find new people that can help me break through to the next level with regard to creativity. People who can help me learn and expand my knowledge base. Once again this is a message that has come up for me several times in the past few months so I think it’s reinforcing and reaffirming that this is the path I need to explore moving forward.
According to Rachel’s companion book, the 8 of Birds Rx can indicate the need to find a voice and unlock the doors in the self; a process of recovery and the release of blocks to creativity. I think the appearance of this card reinforces the idea that happenstance is exactly how I’ve been processing things lately. I have often found that synchronicity regularly applies in my life. I discover new creative outlets or find a book I’m supposed to read exactly when I will be open, and ready, to utilize it. I connect with specific people who can help me with a certain area in my life at just the right moment. The very fact that I’ve been getting messages from my Tarot readings that help me with this process shows how this energy plays out in my life.
I’m headed to face my inner demons. These ghosts like figures on the 5 of Stones strike me as scary until one is able to face them and receive their message. Rachel describes this as a card of internal healing, and finding one’s personal values; recognizing your own power. All of this has been part of my journey since losing my husband. At the center of it is facing my own fears about being alone, and having to deal with things by myself. At the same time, it also indicates that this is an opportunity for me to relearn what brings me joy outside of my relationship with my husband. I realized in the last couple of months that our relationship was very much a closed unit. We were very happy together but we also didn’t need anybody else. Now I have to be open to new relationships because I’m learning that there is truth to the saying that no one is an island. This is especially true as it pertains to the situation with my brother-in-law. I’ve recently really realized that my own refusal to ask for help has resulted in me bearing additional burdens when I didn’t have to. As Dumbledore once told Harry Potter, help is always available at Hogwarts to those who ask.
This reading seemed to reinforce elements in my life that have already begun to manifest and have been coming into play. I see it more as a reaffirmation that I’m moving in the right direction than giving any earth-shattering revelations. It’s as if the Tarot gave me a cosmic “atta girl”. And I’ll take it!
