Here and Now I Exist – Who you are now, in your entirety.
Queen of Cups – You are enjoying being the emotional touchstone of others in your life, and enjoying time with someone that supports you with a motherly warmth. After having had to close yourself off for the holiday rush, you are beginning to open back up in a position of both support, and being supported.
The Slough – What is to be left in the past as you move forward.
Two of Pentacles Rx – Willful imbalance. That is a part of what the holiday rush involves for you, as you are required to let go of a lot of things, including self care, your emotions, and more, all to make room for the rush to run its course. Now now that the rush is over, it’s time to leave that unhealthy imbalance behind.
What Lies Ahead – An ideal state or ideal self you are seeking at this time.
The High Priestess – You are seeking a re-connection with your intuition, spirit guides, and spirituality. There is a lot of knowledge hidden within that has gone dormant that you are now seeking to reawaken.
Limitations – Negative influences, opposition, or ill will.
The Hierophant – Take care that you don’t get so tightly bound up in tradition that you become rigid and inflexible. Your adaptability is a part of what makes you so good at bouncing back when you stumble or are taken by surprise.
The Boon – Positive influences, higher guidance, or divine intervention.
The Chariot – You are eager to move forward onto a path that aligns with your goals, as well as toward the more balanced sense of control hinted at in the Two of Pentacles previously revealed in this reading.
The Wound – An unpleasant past experience or event that is ripe for some support and healing.
Three of Cups Rx – You have been hurt by those that weren’t there for you in the past. Now is the time to work on bridging these gaps that have formed and healing the hurt where possible. Don’t allow sugar coating or gaslighting, and don’t forget the slights. At the same time, the hurt needs healing, so focus on making that possibility become a reality.
Nostalgia – A positive past experience or event to acknowledge, reflect upon, and enjoy.
Three of Swords – Make sure that you are looking for the boon in your personal struggles, disappointments, and woes. Nothing is ever as bad as it first appears, and when you run into hurdles, it’s important to look back at past struggles and remind yourself of that.
A Warning – Something coming that can be prevented or overcome.
The Happy Squirrel – The returned presence of someone in your life can look like a boon, but it has the potential to cause a lot more problems than their presence is actually worth. Like a wolf in sheep’s clothing, they are coming in soft and dormant, but going to cause problems down the road (when they get hungry again).
Empowerment – A future opportunity to work toward.
The Moon – Uncertainty is coming. The more you prepare, the better off you will be. Make sure you have everything backed up and preparations in place.
Message from the Spirit World – You can lead the way unerringly through the chaos to come. Just don’t let doubt and uncertainty overwhelm you. Get ready now so that you can lead others out of the storm when the time comes.
Message from the Mind’s World – There is currently an imbalance between your emotions and intuition. One bolsters and strengthens the other, so make sure you are looking at both as you plot your course forward.
Message from the Physical World – Just like the saying “all work and no play makes for a dull boy,” also true is “all rigid tradition and no fun makes for a disappointing life.”
Take Away – This entire reading is about recovery and finding balance after the holiday rush, as well as what’s currently going on with A, the server, and the team. It speaks of a need to look ahead, plan, and get all of your ducks in a row, as well as seeking out and finding balance once more between work life, home life, and self care.
