Interestingly, I had indented to do this reading about a specific person in my best friend’s life, but it ended up being about two people (mother and son) instead of just the one. This was unexpected, but considering their relationship, perhaps not all that surprising on deeper reflection. I have been given permission to post this reading as long as names and identifying info are not included.
Why does this person bother you so much?
Book and Key – Because he’s a know-it-all and he has the “keys to the castle”. You have to stay on his good side in order to stay on everyone else’s good side, and he knows it and uses it to his advantage.
What stands in the way of accepting this person as they are?
Garden and Cross – Sunday school. Too much forced time spent together, especially when you were growing up.
What do you believe should happen?
Bear and Lily – A mother should treat their children fairly and not play favorites. Wisdom and protection should be provided to both in equal measure, instead of given to one over the other.
How can I change my own thinking about this situation?
Moon and Crossroads – It’s your choice that you are allowing their behavior make you feel uncertain about the future.
Take Away – The two may be “thick as thieves” at the moment, and it may feel like he’s drawing her attention away from you, but this is a long standing sibling rivalry between the two of you, and it isn’t as extreme as it feels. He is deliberately making it seem like more than it is in order to rile you and make you feel like an outsider.
