Slow down and get where you’re going to faster. It sounds counter productive, yeah? Slowing down does not feel like it would get you where you want to go faster… but sometimes it does.
The Chariot indicates that I have the control to take myself forward in any direction that I want to go. All roads are open. What’s key here, though, is that whatever road I choose? I need to take my time.
What attitudes do I need to shift to welcome this opportunity?
I need to reevaluate what I perceive as strength. This makes perfect sense, as taking things slow and moderation are not really things that I usually view as strengths, especially when trying to get somewhere or accomplish something. And they are very much something I’m not at all good at. The suggestion here is that I need to sit with the concept of one’s strength, and consider how I view my own.
What beliefs do I need to shift to welcome this opportunity?
Page of Pentacles
So much of my time and focus lies on the development of stability and security in both my home and finances. This has been to such an extreme over the past decade that it sometimes feels as if these values are the only thing I have dedicated myself to working towards in life.
If I want to welcome in the opportunities available to me over the next twelve months, I need to reframe how I see these goals as well as how I go about accomplishing them.
What behaviors do I need to shift to welcome this opportunity?
Knight of Swords
Jumping in full-bore and going at it without taking a pause or giving myself breaks. Allowing my ambitions to drive me ruthlessly forward, constantly pushing myself harder and harder. These behaviors are not healthy and although I have begun the process of changing how I do things in this area, there’s still a long way to go.
How can I support myself as I make these shifts?
Page of Swords
I need to take some time to really think on and absorb the ramifications of the attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors mentioned above. In these specific areas, the old way is not the best way and I need to make sure that I am open to learning something new that’s going to serve me better.
How can I empower myself as I make these shifts?

Accept the shifts need to happen and do what you can to step into them and allow these old attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors to die. In order to move forward, you have to leave something behind.
