The prompt for this reading came from one of my Discord servers and is as follows:
“A learning-themed divination spread, based on the “KWL” charts.”
Nine of Clubs and Queen of Hearts – Better boundaries for a healthier emotional balance. You can’t always let everyone’s demands for your time and attention tap you out. Don’t forget that you need time for yourself too, no matter how much of yourself you feel the desire to give to others.
2a. K (Know): What do I already know about this topic?
Jack of Diamonds – You know that you’re already on the right path and that it’s going to take some time. That, as long as you stay focused on what you want to build and where you want to take it, that it will come over time.
2b. K (Know): Where does my prior knowledge and experience help me in understanding this topic?
Three of Clubs – They give you direction and motivation to keep going. You know what a detriment not having healthy boundaries can be for you. You know that without them, you become overwhelmed and the world begins to feel like it’s falling apart. And you know that without those boundaries, you are far more likely to become vulnerable to the wrong people, which can cause damage that goes far deeper than just burnout (ie: the “pissant” incident). All of this knowledge provides motivation and direction, and helps to keep you on track where your boundaries are concerned.
3a. W (Wonder): What things have I already been wondering about related to this topic?
Jack of Spades – How to strategize my way forward at a faster pace. Obviously I know that this is a bad idea and it’s my past and my negative habits that inspire this topic of curiosity. But, there’s no denying that it’s there.
3b. W (Wonder): What things have I already been wanting to do related to this topic?
Six of Clubs – How to more easily pave the path to getting there. This isn’t about speed so much as it’s about stumbling blocks and wanting to move forward without a lot of struggle and stress. “Harmonizing the journey” so to speak, so that it can go more smoothly. This is something I’ve been wanting to do.
4a. L (Learn): What am I already learning about this topic?
Three of Hearts – There are people in my life eager and happy to help lift me up and support me. I don’t have to do it alone. And, in fact, probably shouldn’t do it alone even if I might want to or feel that urge.
4b. L (Learn): What will I be learning about this topic soon?
Three of Spades – Setbacks happen.
