West – Purge
We had this card earlier in the month. We are still harbouring problems that are not aired, are problems no one knows anything about. Bottling up your problems inside of you takes away your valuable soul energy. It drains you of that which you need to move forward.
Work you no longer enjoy or which drains you by the end of the day. A relationship that is no supporting and helping you but instead asking you to be like a bandage for another is not worthy of you. You can approach your colleagues about your work effort and the way it drains you.
Switch to something that is up lifting and enjoyable.
If lifting and enjoyable work is not available to you. Move on to a new work place, a new team that is and will support you.
If it is a relationship. Now is the time to end it and leave for peace and quiet. Sit and meditate on what it is you want I a partner and then start to seek them out.
In all of this, you are being true to yourself. No one will critics you for that, be assured of it.
Cave – Retreat
Caves were homes to the first peoples and their Shamans. They offered protection and were ready built. Above all they were safe, mostly warm and dry.
Cave is here to remind you to slow down. Do not wear yourself out. Let the egoic mind chatter slow and ebb away. Above all, stop worrying about others, inserted care about yourself. As they say, “now is the time to smell the roses.”
Use the Cave as a sanctuary to meditate and be at peace for a while. You need it. In this pandemic riddled world, we all need it.
A period or meditation, peace and quiet will allow you to rebalance yourself, see the future with your inner eye and map its direction. You will be able to live more effectively in the NOW.
