Leaves: What feeds my soul?
Clouds – Challenges and struggle. This is an odd card to see in the “feeds your soul” position until you consider the fact that it is only through challenges that we grow. The things that create confusion and complications in life are the same things that facilitate our growth. Without them, life is stagnant and so are we. This card is not just an answer to what feeds the soul, but a reminder to be grateful for each and every experience we have… even those that are confusing, challenging, or filled with hurdles and complications.
Branches: What direction do I need to grow?
Woman – This card recently came up in a different reading for a very similar question. It is an indication that you need to tap into your softer side. That sacred feminine side that everyone has within them that fosters energies of nurturing and warmth. You spend too much time poking and prodding and shoving at yourself, pushing yourself to your limits and beyond without any mercy or kindness. It’s time to grow in a direction that fosters a more supportive and nurturing energy in how you treat yourself as well as how you talk to yourself.
Trunk: What supports my well-being?
Clover – Over the past year you have been working really hard on injecting more positivity, optimism, and happiness into your life. You’ve discovered that these efforts are not in vain, but assist in finding balance that allows you to continue to push toward your goals, but in far more healthy ways. It’s important to continue this practice. These influences created in small ways have a large impact over time, and are especially important when you are feeling your lowest and worst as they can help lift you up out of the darkness.
Roots: What anchors me in place?
Scythe – Cold hard logic. While you explore your emotions and they feel as if they are always out of control, always sliding this way and that, and always feeling just slightly outside of your understanding… cold hard logic is the anchor in the storm. Just remember that you do not have to cut your emotions off or end your growth to use this logic to its fullest potential when an anchor is needed.
