A card to represent something that is tricking me.
Five of Swords – I am feeling chased by the echoes of past habits and the anxiety that they carry with them. It’s that adrenaline feeling of needing to push, push, push. With the holiday rush so close, I feel hounded by this, and the nagging cycles of inner dialogue that say I’m not ready and need to prepare for battle.
How I’m being fooled by this.
Four of Swords – It is stealing my rest. I sleep but don’t feel rested because I’m not actually -resting- even in sleep. My mind is a tangle of what needs to be done, how to prepare, and hyping myself up. It is a tangle of knots that is stealing away my recovery and recuperation.
How I can gain a clear perspective and stop being tricked.
Ace of Wands – Focus on the new goals I’ve been leaning into over the past two years. Focus on stepping away from old habits and building new ones. Let go of how I’ve done things in the past, and create better methods to take their place.
A card to represent a treat in my life.
Five of Pentacles – Loss. Scarcity.
A way that I can fully embrace this treat.
Page of Pentacles atop The High Priestess – Not always identified as a treat, loss and scarcity issues provide stabilizing encouragement to stay grounded, and hold a reminder to focus on the now and what is good in your life in the present instead of always looking forward to what you want to accomplish or what you’ve failed to earn.
Something I don’t yet understand about this treat.
Six of Cups – The true depths of where these scarcity issues come from hasn’t fully been grasped yet.
