|I love the pissed off cherub in this picture. The roses also have significance, due to the name of my pending business.|
I saw Monica's post using the Tea Leaf Fortune Cards for February and I decided to do the same. Last night I pulled these four cards for the month of February. It's funny because my husband also pulled four for himself, and his were very positive and glowing. I remarked to him, half-jokingly, 'Just watch. Mine will be negative!' I was only half-right, thankfully.
As we all know, problems are only things that need to be worked out, so I'm working on releasing my fears of problems and concerns, big and small. When I look at this spread again in the light of day it isn't so bad, even though I do feel anxious today. I don't feel that well physically and haven't for a while, actually, so I need to put my physical health on the front burner, as well as my mental health with meditation and relaxation.
The 'Inkpot' card always makes me think of contracts and things-to-be-worked-out. It is a card that brings to mind the nitty-gritty details of life. It's about sorting out details. I've gotten this card for clients and also myself, when something still needs to be worked out. It does imply (at least I think it does) that things can be worked out, but it will take some time and effort, and some degree of anal nit-picking. And according to the book, this also shows problems you don't want to face that you have to face.
This could be a number of things for me. Issues with my daughter, issues with my health such as needing to exercise, working out the boring details of certain things, such as the venture I'm thinking of launching in March, clearing out the art space which is not a giant repository for all our junk, and other things that a person tends to put off. But mostly I still see it as a way of working out issues.
The 'Unicorn' card makes me think of problem-solving, but instead of doing it in an analytical way with brainstorming and other swordsy things, it's about using your intuition. I like this. This card specifically speaks about honing intuitive and psychic gifts to use for your benefit. I will definitely try to utilize my intuition to work out the details of all I need to work on in February, which includes coming up with logo/branding info, packaging, prices, products, and all of that crazy crap.
The 'Tortoise' reminds me that this isn't to be rushed. I tend to push ahead too quickly and then either get sloppy or impatient. When I do things purposefully I can do a really good job. Slow and steady wins the race, right? I don't want this thing to fizzle out before it even begins, which is sort of my default response to life, and I want to change that!
The 'Dagger' card shows my mental state. My anxiety has been cropping up again, after being somewhat in remission for a while. I suppose it's natural to be anxious when doing something new. I think that I'd like to try to make relaxation a part of this process so that I can stay sane. I don't want to attach fear and misery to this venture, or my life in general. So that is one I want to work on. In fact, I decided to pull a couple cards to go with the 'Dagger' card to see if it can give some advice on how to handle it.
Ah, cool! So I got 'Bridge' and 'Key' that both indicate successfully overcoming problems. This makes me think that if I just keep in mind that I can solve any problem that comes along that will help my anxiety level quite a bit. Of course, in taking this picture I accidentally flipped you all off, so I apologize. Haha!! I thought I'd keep that in there because I thought it was hilarious. Or maybe I'm flipping off my anxiety? There's a thought!
Much Love to Y'all,
