The Sun. Reversed.
“The Sun reversed can mean you are struggling to see the bright side of life. You may have experienced setbacks that damaged your enthusiasm and optimism and perhaps led you to question whether you can achieve what you set out to do. You may feel depressed or left out and are no longer enjoying what you are doing. Your direction and path ahead may appear clouded or distorted.
Nonetheless, the Sun is never a negative card, so this is only temporary. The obstacles you see can be easily removed if you put your mind to it. It may just take a bit more effort than usual.” Biddy Tarot
- This rings true to my current state of being. I am aware and in anticipation of this depression lifting and me once again enjoying my experience. Life’s experiences in many ways have impaired my optimism. However, I know for certain how to clear my mind and get back to the place I long to be while I’m here. It jus takes will, consistency, and allowing myself the time to recalibrate.
The World. Reversed.
“You know, deep down, that to accept and embrace where you are now, you need to let go of the past and move on. Finding closure may be an intensely personal journey – something you manage through journaling, visualisation, energy work, and therapy.
The World reversed can signify that you want to fulfil a big goal or complete a big project, but you’re not taking all the steps necessary to get there. You may opt for the easiest or quickest path to attain your goal, but it won't lead to the outcome you intend. Climbing a mountain from the bottom up is an entirely different experience from getting a helicopter ride to the peak, even though the destination is the same. You need to experience the trials and tribulations along the way so you can learn and grow. And when you do reach your goal, you will enjoy such a fantastic sense of achievement. Don’t be afraid to set stretch goals for yourself, even if it means enduring hardships or challenges along the way; it will make the victory even sweeter.” Biddy Tarot
- The first sentence in the interpretation rings out like to loudest bell known to man. There are many things I struggle with letting go of. I have not found complete comfort in solitude. I want to be comfortable with myself as much as possible. The work to get there is not as easy as I anticipated. Men, work, pleasing people etc. is not my calling. I have many realistic goals. These goals take time, effort, patience... I don’t want an easy victory. I want to cherish my achievements. I want to gain wisdom. Journaling, energy work, visualization, therapy. Wow. Four things I hold near and dear to my growth.
Six of Pentacles. Reversed.
“The Six of Pentacles reversed reminds you to make sure you are also giving to yourself. A little self-care will go a long way, especially if you have been in giving mode for a long time. Consider buying a little gift to show yourself appreciation for everything you’ve done; maybe a massage, a beautiful box of truffles, or simply write a love note to yourself to say ‘Thanks for everything’.
The Six of Pentacles reversed can suggest that while you are giving to others freely, they are not giving back in return. For example, you may lend money to a friend, but they don’t pay you back. Or you help someone out, but they fail to return the favour and show a lack of gratitude and appreciation. It’s a one-way street, and you may feel as if they are taking advantage of you. While you can’t change the other person’s response or force them to repay the favour (or the money owed), you can learn from the experience and decline to help in the future. Or, if you do decide to offer help again, suggest an alternative way to pay you back so there is still a healthy exchange of energy – perhaps they cook a meal for you or offer you a service in return.
If you are struggling yourself, be careful that you do not over-commit yourself to others who seek your help. You may have a tendency to spend or give away more than you can afford. While a generous spirit is a wonderful quality, you need to ensure that you are able to support yourself while helping others.
The Six of Pentacles reversed asks you to be mindful about taking on debt” Biddy Tarot
So much about this card stands out to me. Self-care is an area that requires cultivation in my life right now. I feel as if I’m not sure how to take care of myself. I know how to. My mind feels so clouded at the moment that my path to self care is invisible. I know the path is there. I’m standing in the pathway. The fog is just too thick at the moment. Writing myself a love note or a love letter seems like a beautiful idea.
While I have been known to give too much at this point I am not in a giving mood; especially as it related to material things. I have no problem with saying no at this point. My best friend asked to move with me to Savannah. I told him flat out No. His initial reaction was uncomfortable to both of us but going back to self care and my giving spirit I knew I would be doing myself and our friendship a great disservice by agreeing. No is my final answer. This move is something I want to experience independently.
Lastly, overcommitting is something I feel I’m continuing to make progress with. More so as it relates to my career. I always had this idea that I must say yes to everything work related because I was “paying my dues”. Chile, fuck that! Paying dues is a life long responsibility. I don’t owe these girls a work not on penny. It is I who I owe dues to. I know that being a therapist is not something I will do full time. I’ve worked this field for years. I don’t owe anyone anything. Period.
I'm numb. I can't keep being your therapist when it's my past trauma you're trying to work through
Happy 200 years! 🇬🇷🎉
the way that my social work professor has asked us to write a FIVE page paper reflecting on our childhoods and our relationships with our parents. hm. how many times can i repeat the sentiment that "my parents were proud of me for being so independent and never needing attention. my parents loved ME best bc i could take care of myself from a much younger age than my siblings. my parents loved me bc of how little energy it took to care for me" before i have to face the fact that maybe my family's dynamic was just a little bit fucked
