Wow, this reading is the aftermath of Friday’s reading playing out. Friday’s reading urged us to maintain healthy inner boundaries while releasing fears as The Tower crashes around us. Well, that was easier said than done!
I’ve come through my Tower event and am in that awkward rebirth phase right now. You know the one – where the learning and growing happens.
This kind of Tower transformation is so powerful because it helps us heal from past trauma. For me personally, it helps me overcome the childhood trauma of growing up with an emotionally abusive father. Tower transformations – letting it all crash down so that the light can come in – are painful in the moment but lead to amazing new beginnings afterward. Just like literal death and birth. Women experience mini versions of this with their monthly cycles and sometimes major versions. When The Tower shows up, like it did in Friday’s reading, it’s major.
After a major shakeup like this, you integrate the new life lessons that you’ve learned in order to release the past, heal and grow, and start anew.
I hope this reading helps you on your path to inner transformation, too. Here we go!
Today, the 7 of Wands reversed card tells us to maintain authority over our minds by fending off harmful thoughts. Defend yourself against inner attack.
Our 5 of Swords reversed card in the middle tells us to stop abusing ourselves. Stop bullying yourself and letting yourself feel defeated.
It’s normal to tell ourselves hurtful things or to allow someone else’s hurtful words to penetrate our minds, but it’s up to us to defend our inner selves from harm.
It’s OK to feel down when something hurts us, but we must counter harmful thoughts in our minds with empowering thoughts.
I’m struggling with this right now. Someone recently hurt my feelings. I’m working on getting stronger. I try to practice The Four Agreements to keep myself from getting hurt. When I get hurt, I examine which agreement I’m breaking that’s allowing me to feel this way. Am I taking what the person said personally? Am I making assumptions? Sometimes, I get down on myself for letting myself get down – wow, what a spiral!
It’s healthy to introspect, learn and grow, but it’s also healthy to allow yourself to feel your feelings. Sometimes, I feel stuck between letting myself feel my feelings and defending myself from my harmful thoughts and feelings. Ugh! What? I think a lot of us feel this conflict. We feel stuck, like the woman sitting in our 2 of Swords card. Her card here is a call to release that feeling of being stuck between difficult, opposing positions. And release the need for perfect balance.
The fourth agreement is to always do your best, and your best changes day to day, sometimes moment to moment. You’re always evolving. If pain is still getting in, that’s normal. That’s OK. You’re doing your best right now. I’m doing my best right now.
I’m going to try to let myself feel my feelings while trying to counter self-harming thoughts. I don’t have to feel bad about myself for allowing someone else to cause me pain. It’s OK to feel the pain. That’s where I am right now. Maybe next time I’ll be a little stronger, but this is the best I can do right now, and that’s OK. Where I am right now is allowing myself to feel hurt, but making sure I don’t change how I think and feel about myself based on taking someone else’s actions personally.
I don’t want their actions to change how I feel about myself. I will defend against that with everything I’ve got. I will not start abusing myself because of something someone else said or did. That’s what I tell myself. If I slip, hopefully I catch myself, but if I slip, that’s OK. That’s normal. I’m still making progress, and I’m still a lot stronger than I used to be. I get stronger every day. That’s my best. And that’s all I ask of myself.
I have a feeling that you’re doing the same. I honor you for your progress and your strength.
I know this is different from my usual daily tarot reading because I focused a lot on myself as I’m in these emotions right now and am currently working with these cards for guidance. I hope this helps you as you work through these emotions, too.
I am not stuck and neither are you. I choose to celebrate my progress today. And I celebrate yours, as well. I hope that you celebrate your progress, too.
This form of introspection and growth is the feminine way. We go through a normal cycle of introspection, shedding what no longer serves and growing stronger every month. Some people probably think that this thought process is “crazy.” Sometimes, we might think that it seems crazy ourselves. But it’s not. This is healthy growth and transformation on the path of life.
Thank you for being with me on this journey.
