No tarot reading is complete without:
I wrote a rundown of this kind of reading in this post, if you have any questions that would be a good place to start.
Who I Was
The Six of Cups represents memories, childhood, and joy. Cups are ruled by the element of water and, as in astrology, represent deep emotions. We should all try to keep a little part of the simple joy of childhood with us when adulthood seems like too much to bear.
Who I Am
The Four of Pentacles, while it does suggest financial stability, it can also bring with it a rigidity and obsession with material possessions. Think Ebenezer Scrooge, which seemed appropriate for this time of year. It’s easy to get caught up in what you’re getting (I’m pretty I’ve said my kingdom for my cast iron at least weekly for the past three months. And, yes, I say borderline douchey things like that constantly. When I’m not correcting people’s grammar.) The point is, we should all try to remember to be thankful for the people in our lives, not just what they give us.
Who I Will Be
The Ten of Cups is your goals being realized and the joy that comes from it. We all see the new year as a fresh start, but you shouldn’t wait for your New Year’s resolution as an incentive. It sounds like a motivational poster, but it’s true: you shouldn’t wait for something you want to do. If you’re waiting for the perfect time, don’t. It will never come. If you’re waiting to be better, you won’t unless you keep trying and learning. I feel as though I write about this frequently, but I’m pretty sure this is a common experience. If it’s not you getting in the way of yourself, it’s probably because you let other people do it first. Either way, you’ve lost time. Don’t lose anymore.
Anyway, thanks for reading and let me know what you think in the comments. Bye!
