What are you ignoring?
Five of Cups and Strength – Pessimism does not give you strength, optimism does. Pessimism will break you down overtime, as it has done in the past. Leaning into optimism, on the other hand, will lift you up and make you stronger. The last couple of days you’ve been struggling with leaning into that optimistic mindset. Don’t ignore the creeping niggle of negativity. It’s not going to go away just because you pretend it’s not there.
Why are you hiding from this truth?
Four of Cups and Four of Swords – You find stability and comfort and what is familiar. That pessimism feels like a safe and comfortable resting place, even as it’s unhealthy and hurts you.
What resource have you not fully tapped into that could help in this area?
Eight of Swords and The Star – Open your eyes and see more clearly the potential a more hopeful and positive outlook could give you, instead of hiding behind your fear that being hopeful and positive will turn around on you and bite you in the ass.
How can you overcome this blockage?
Seven of Swords and Knight of Swords – Stay aware of what this pessimism and negativity are stealing from you, and proactive in your pursuit of something better.
