The prompt for this reading came from one of my Discord servers and is as follows:
“The wheel of the year is tipping away from extreme and closer to balance. Explore this theme with your divination tools with some of the following questions.”
Jack of Diamonds – You are starting to get control over your negative thoughts and bring them back to center. This isn’t so much about the “bringing them back to center” part, which will happen on its own, but in taking that first step of awareness to what is going on and the conscious understanding that that negative inner narrative is your brain lying to you and not a reflection of reality. As they say, being aware of the problem is the first step.
How is this affecting me mentally?
Six of Diamonds atop Queen of Diamonds – It is allowing kinder thoughts to have room to replace the abusive bitch in your head. It is allowing you to be more generous with yourself and with what you are going through right now.
How is this affecting me emotionally?
King of Diamonds – It allows you to find the stability that you have been lacking, and see that there is a path forward. You may not be able to grasp control at this time, but it gives you the ability to plan and strategize, which creates hope and allows you to realize that there is a light at the end of the tunnel even if you can’t see it just yet.
How is this affecting me physically?
Four of Hearts atop Five of Clubs – You are fighting against your need for the things that could help you feel more physically well. The opportunities to get out and hike, or spend time in nature are being rejected as the depression makes everything feel unappealing.
How can I respond in a healthy way?
Three of Spades – Ride it out. This is what is happening right now and you know from your past experiences with it that it’s a part of life. And temporary. Let it happen, ride it out.
