Don’t let the past hold you back
VII of Pentacles, VI of Cups, IX of Wands, VII of Wands, Ace of Cups
Merry meet, dear readers. Before you continue, take note: Tarot is for everyone, no matter your walk of life. While the cards have their own singular meanings, tarot is also largely intuitive and the meanings can change; no two tarot readers read the same way. This is a generalized reading, so take only what resonates with you and discard the rest.
I hope everyone had a wonderful time celebrating Thanksgiving with family and friends last week. This week, we say goodbye to November and welcome December. We’re reaching the end of the year, and many are finishing up personal projects and goals as we prepare to make new resolutions for the new year.
This time of year, many are rekindling or re-affirming relationships as we celebrate what we have and the people we have in our lives, while also remembering those who aren’t able to be with us. Many are working on their home-life, and for many of you the work is hard but you’re driven to get it done, even when it gets hard. Inside, you know you’re about to reach your goal. Some of you might even see someone who has only recently returned to your life, and with it excitement. With the end in sight, you might take a moment and think about what you’re looking to obtain, and the fulfillment it will bring to your home, your emotions and perhaps even your relationships.
Be careful not to spend too much time thinking about the past, however. Sometimes thinking back too hard at the “what was” can set expectations for what you’re working towards, whether or not the past brings with it more good or bad memories over the other. It can bring doubts and make you rethink decisions that you were once sure about. All that drive you had becomes blocked, and the work you’ve been putting in stalls and control is lost as you hesitate to move forward.
Trust yourself, your intuition and reset expectations for outcomes that aren’t quite here yet. It’s normal to remember the past and what brought you to where you are, but in this moment you need to bring yourself back down to earth. Reaffirm your goals and let the passion that once drove you forward return; remain positive, and you’ll find yourself where you need to be.
I hope you find something for yourself in this reading, reader. May your days be filled with love and light, even when it all feels too much; and remember to always be kind. Merry part, and merry meet again! Blessed be.
