#ChattingwithTarot – 7 of Cups Rx, The Tower + Queen of Pentacles (#Dreamkeepers #Tarot)

Today’s ancestral message: “You’re deliberately ignoring the choices that are available to you; pretending they don’t exist. Instead, you’d rather bitch about the things you can’t do. You need to destroy that pointless, limiting mindset; grind it into the dust beneath your feet, so that you can start over again. You need to relearn who you truly are because you’re not the same person you were 10 years ago. Once you’ve asked yourself those questions you may find yourself in a place of fulfillment, confidence and contentment. You’ll also find yourself better able to nurture and sustain others because you’ll finally be able to nurture and sustain yourself.”

How are you holding back? What are you afraid of?

I’m afraid of starting over; of being the student again, the beginner. At the same time I do have faith and confidence in my ability to succeed at whatever I focus my energies towards achieving. I think there is still a part of me that resists drawing attention to myself; that wants to avoid standing out from the crowd. Call it the lingering effects of high school mocking and teasing.

My inability to seek support and assistance further complicates matters. I’m definitely in the “rugged individualist” camp. I know it’s short-sighted and makes things more difficult than they need to be but it’s a mold I find almost impossible to break. I come from a long line of self-sufficient, fiercely independent women. We can bear a helluva lot without asking for help. In this respect I’m my own worst enemy. So, the only thing holding me back is me and my own self-doubt and stubbornness.

Do you remember the last time you felt confident? What can you do to easily access that state (physically and mentally) when it is called for?

I feel confident whenever I think about my marriage. My husband’s support, trust, faith and belief in me helps me remain confident and positive even when my life seems like a shit storm. He is proud of me in all my vocal, assertive brashness. He encourages my weirdness and reminds me of my value.

The way I can easily tap into that state is to look in my own heart and see my hubby’s face reflected there. I’m usually fairly confident but every so often I stumble. When I do, I hear my hubby’s voice in my head & heart encouraging me, supporting me and loving me.

TarotHunter’s Silver Bullets:

  • Working hard can produce many benefits but it can also leave you feeling isolated and out in the cold. Working and making money are not the only important things in life.
  • The flip side of that is the unfortunate truth that working hard will not always guarantee financial security. How many hard-working folks have you met that lost job through no fault of their own? Sometimes reality is a bitch and others may need our support.
  • Stop staring down at your own feet! Look around and face reality. Dedication to your job won’t protect you from unemployment. If you lose your job then a network of connections and resources may be what helps you get through it. Make sure you cultivate and nurture these resources before it’s too late.

#TarotDaily – 5 of Coins + Strength (Deirdre)

TarotHunter’s Silver Bullets:

  • Although you may believe you have nothing, you do possess the inner strength and fortitude to see things through.
  • Remember that help is available to those who ask. All true heroes require aide, advice & assistance on their journeys.
  • Being strong and stoic doesn’t mean you shouldn’t ask for and benefit from help and support.

#TarotDaily – 2 of Coins + 6 of Coins Rx (Grand Luxe)

Tarot Hunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • Balance, delicately weaving your way through your own life, is desirable but difficult to achieve.  Don’t refuse offers of help and support while attempting this tightrope walk.
  • Sometimes you need to let go of things in order to maintain your balance.  Is there something you’re still clinging to that might be throwing your balance off?
  • Have you been giving or taking too much lately?  Maybe that’s where the balance needs to be achieved.  It might be time to shift gears and take a different approach.

#TarotDaily – Queen of Pentacles + 5 of Pentacles (Hudes)

Tarot Hunter’s Silver Bullets:

  • Always being the giver and nurturer can be exhausting and deplete your resources.  Asking for and receiving help and support is not a sign of weakness
  • Even those who seem to be poor in material resources can still offer succor and aide. Your value to a charitable institution is not solely defined by financial status. 
  • Sometimes accessing the resources to which you are entitled can be tricky.  Seek assistance from someone who is familiar with the system and can provide insights and guidance.
