Like I mentioned that life has been stressful. In times of high anxiety, I find the tarot deck helps me focus my thoughts.
Pulled a reverse 9 of pentacles which reads on Biddy Tarot,
“The Nine of Pentacles reversed can also indicate an over-investment in work. You are working long hours at the detriment of your personal life. This is a good time to return to a natural setting (e.g. a forest, beach, mountain or lake) to restore your energies and rejuvenate yourself.
Similarly, the reversed Nine of Pentacles suggests that you may need to release some of your focus on needing to sustain particular income and a particular standard of living, especially if this is coming in the way of other life priorities such as family or relationships. You may think you need the best of everything but really, all you need is your family and loved ones around you. Do not be afraid to take a cut to your income for a short time or to reduce your hours at work, even if this means that you have to eat rice and beans each night for a week to make up for it! It is important that you are focused on what is most important to you. Finances may need to come second and while you need to at least have food on the table, there may be some areas where you can cut back and reduce your dependence on material wealth.”
Since work is whats stressing me out, this hits close to bullseye. I know that I need to find balance on top of figure out how to solve my work problems (but on the clock and not let it consume me). This is partially why I do want start this blog back up. Me and Neysa always intended it as a potential enterprise to sell hand crafted goods as an alternative revenue. If you see adds – its because I plan to monetize this blog once we gain some momentum. I also research store options. I don’t really want to jump back into etsy, but if we make something cool – I want a way to put it out there. If you have any recommendations, I’m all ears!
Back to the reading, I do want to reconnect with my passions. I’ll blog about what I do, because its what I love. Here’s to consistently striving to make positive changes in life.
IF you are curious about my tarot deck, its the Erotic Tarot of Manara Cards.
