Week of May 24, 2023: Cards and Contemplations

Jessica Abbott

Trust your mind

VIII of Potions, VI The Lovers, Ace of Needles

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.

Something is not sitting right with you, and it’s setting you off balance. Whether it is a business partnership, a new friendship or romantic relationship, a part of you is saying that is not what you thought it would be and it’s leaving you with a sour taste in your mouth.Perhaps there’s bitterness or troubled waters in your past with this person or persons that you thought you’d buried or had worked past, with or without those involved, but it’s coming back and affecting your present. It’s confusing you as you try to seek happiness and success.It’s going to come down to a choice and the answer may or may not come to you quickly. When it comes, you’ll know and you’ll wonder why you didn’t see it before. Either way it won’t be an easy decision and you’ll need to have the strength to move forward with your decision. Trust your mind and your intuition, and what is good for you when you do.The path isn’t going to be easy and will twist and curve on you. Will you be able to patch things together and find your happiness, or will you be left to get pricked and hurt?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.
