Seemed like a good time as any to toss out a few cards and see what kinds of reflection they trigger within me. Being in the place where I expect to experience massive amounts of change, it seems like a good idea to get as much advice as possible from the Universe at large. Day Four in however many days that I end up doing this for the purposes of self-reflection. Today, I elected to do a status check using Material State/Emotional State/Spiritual State with a “Where am I at?”
Three Cards Spread | Subject: Status check
Material state (XII The Hanged Man, reversed)
Indicates that I may be hitting a certain level of physical exhaustion, likely driven my my restless nights and frequent insomnia. My mind is racing, but my body needs me to slow down and rest, and I may be on the verge of crashing. This may be the cause of any blocking I may be experiencing, as my material body is fighting with an overactive mind. It may be time to surrender to what is and let go of attachments; time to do some self-care and gather energy.
Mental state (Page of Swords, reversed)
It is a good time to be wary of making promises and commitments or readily accepting such things from others; I am and should be wary of big stories of the past and others’ achievements, which may be less than truthful. I am in a place where I am asking lots of questions, some of which may seem threatening or challenges — although I may think I am only trying to understand. I’m feeling rebellious and I need to tone down the tone of my questions so they are less challenging and more inclusive.
Spiritual State (VI Swords, reversed)
My spiritual being is in a state of flux and transition. I have embraced that I need a new way of thinking and I am bringing it to fruition. Before being able to do so, however, I should self-evaluate and confront any unfinished business, conflicts, or lessons I need to learn before moving on. While there may be pain in confronting these things, there is a promise of a better future once I put these things to rest, to put my past firmly in the past and look forward. I may need to move beyond my comfort zone.
