The prompt for this reading came from one of my Discord servers and is as follows:
“Do you know you have shadow work hanging around but also know that you don’t have the mental energy to tackle it all yet? Do some mental and emotional preparation with these.
Theme: Make myself aware of what things I’m going to need to deal with but can’t yet.”
Taxes. Yes, I know the deadline is coming up, and I have quite a bit to get done in the interim between now and when I meet with my accountant again next month, but it’s one of those things that I need to work on one step at a time and I’m still not quite clear headed enough to manage it. This might mean I need to file an extension this year.
Hopefully that will not be the case and with the help of L and Z as well as the accountant, I can get it done and checked and double checked in time. I am aware that the depression cut into the time I would have normally spent on this over the past two months though, so it’s possible that extension might end up necessary whether I like it or not.
2. Where did this come from?

Having a healthy and thriving business is something I’ve built up over time and as a result it seems the taxes involved become more of a pain in the ass with each passing year. Fortunately, I have a good accountant on my side to help me get through it.
3. What steps should I healthily be taking now?
Five of Diamonds
Recognize that my feelings of scarcity are there to create a buffer of care and caution right now. It allows me to step back and look at things with an unbiased and practical eye. I recognize that these feelings of scarcity are false, but I can use them to better prepare and allow for a level of impartiality that would otherwise be difficult to accomplish.
4. How will I know it’s time?

When I start feeling restless in my inaction, it will be time to finally use my skills and abilities to step forward and get moving on this. Those steps can be small, just one small step in front of the other.
