I have been no-joke struggling this summer. I started my blog in July but quickly faltered under the weight of my own perfectionism. August brought a devastating flood, and my father's rapidly declining health. September included a violent road rage incident involving a gun that could have been so much worse, and which I am still shaken from, a week later.
I am having a hard time coping. .
Today's reading shows that the period of suppressed intuition is leaving. The clouds of self-deception are parting, and soon, I will see clearly again. The Eight of cups is walking away from the pain and the anguish I brought upon myself, by imagining myself as being in control and therefore, a failure when situations beyond my control transpired. I am leaving the behind today, the first day of Fall 2016. The clouds have parted, I see the Ace of Wands before me. Creative energy, full steam ahead. I have a new direction, it's a new season, a new beginning, it's time to leave the shadows behind and bring my creative energy into play.
