Eight of Cups

CUPS eight ofIt is sunny where I am today. The sunny season is short where I live and so I felt slightly miffed pulling such a sad looking card. But you know what? Only after we have exhausted all avenues, and tried every idea, do we come to the realization that it is what it is and then finally move forward. So we understand it, we accept it, and then we let it go. It’s okay to feel sad and maybe a little depressed about it. Now we have to start over. That’s not such a bad thing though, because it opens us up to new possibilities. And all that pressure is off! We get to rest, and think, and start something fresh armed with new experience and wisdom.

SWORDS four ofToday find a way to be by yourself, even if it is only for a few minutes. Rest, relax, and be with your thoughts. A little introversion and a little recuperation will go a long way towards feeding your soul and preparing you for the next chaotic phase of life. Even if you only take a short break from your day – do it. Go outside and take a walk, go to a park if there is one nearby, sit under a tree if you can, or sit on a bench and relax for a few. Enjoy the feel of the sun on your skin, or the breeze across your face, or even the smell of the rain in the air if that’s what is going on out there for you. If you can take more than a short break, even better. We can always find some time if we make it a priority. You’ll feel better and you may even have a great revelation about something you didn’t even know was weighing you down. You can certainly feel good about taking such good care of yourself. Our own selves are usually the one person in our lives we neglect the most even though we know we have more capacity for our loved ones if we have a well of health and happiness to draw from.

CUPS four ofThis card typically indicates a time of boredom and dissatisfaction in a relationship. You may also be feeling a bit depressed and let down, but be careful that you aren’t confusing reality with unreasonable expectations. As always, think things through before you act. It’s hard not to feel cheated, but you might be cheating yourself by expecting more than the relationship – any relationship really – can deliver. It’s Monday, so I feel like this is related to your job, but it’s Monday and who doesn’t dream of retirement on Monday? I’m sure someone somewhere doesn’t, but I personally don’t know any of them.
