What triggers my negative emotional responses that do not reflect my higher purpose?– X of Pentacles rxed
The X of Pentacles is a card of success and commitment, two very highly valued attributes in our society. Your negativity monster is likely to rear its ugly head when you consider whether or not you will ever be truly secure and successful. Will you ever have everything figured out? Will you ever have your happily ever after? When the futility of all your hard work threatens to overwhelm you, its time to step back, take a deep breathe and reevaluate your situation. First, be grateful for all that you do have and congratulate yourself for all that you have done. You are amazing! A positive outlook is much more productive at creating more positivity. Fake it till you make it if you must!, especially if you have already allowed yourself a healing down time to wallow and express your sadness. The next step is to redefine happiness and success. These definitions should be deeply personal and not a mimic of what everyone else says. Know that is not what you do as much as how you do it. Make your main goal in life to bring more love and light into the world for yourself and your people, and see how that perspective alters the way you go about your daily routine.
What positive message does my subconscious want to share with me now?- The Knight of Swords rxed
You’ve got time. The Knight of Swords reversed is here to let you know that there isn’t any rush. You don’t have to grow, change, or do anything with great haste. You are a work in progress. Every stage of your life is worth living so there is no need to go charging off and miss the step you are at now. Actually, it is very necessary to slow down at this point or you run the risk of burning yourself out. Your subconscious is sending you a little message of warning to take care of yourself by entering into a more peaceful state. Yes, it can be wonderful to be bursting with ideas and energy, and wanting to take action right away but honestly, you are only one person, capable of so much. Make time for rest and relaxation away from your busy mind and its lists of action items.
I hope you enjoyed this New Moon reading. If you want to take the energy of the reading a step further, ask your cards: “What area of my life should I look to renew and grow at this time?” What card did you draw and how does it inspire or motivate you to seek renewal in your life at this time? I drew the King of Wands whose energy encourages me to seek renewal in the domain of my creative pursuits. His are qualities I endeavor to carry with me as inspiration when setting my goals for 2016.
