Making Conscious Decisions
So it's safe to say that I'm kinda addicted to my Enchanted Map Oracle App. I use it on a daily basis, and I've found it to be very readable and very helpful. I admit, when I got the physical deck and used it, I didn't find this to be the case. I found it too floaty and esoteric. But after I used it a while I started to learn its language better--and now I feel like the messages are much easier to interpret.
This card is one of the easier ones to interpret. It's pretty obvious. But making choices can also be one of the harder things to do when we don't feel inclined to do so. I've gotten an interesting slew of cards lately. First with the 'DUNZO' cards, saying that I had hit the end of the line. All those tens, all those Death-esque cards, the Rock Bottom card.
Following up those cards were a bunch of 'you need to take more risks and stop living so small' cards. Then directly after that today, with several cards telling me, since I had begun doing so, trying too hard to force a change. The recommended action, instead, was that I really had to ride the wave, follow a more natural, organic course of action instead of fitting a round peg into a square hole.
I have to admit it's enough to make my head spin! Perhaps I should read only once or twice a week, but I have found these cards very instructive. It's almost like someone following me around with a paddle, or a horse whip, but gently nudging me in a direction.
Here's a card for today. Make a Choice. This isn't about a hasty or ill-timed choice, obviously, but a conscious choice. I thought of this a bit earlier today when I was wondering about traveling. If I just try my best to actively arrange something, even if I have questions of whether it's financially indicated, I can get better results than not entertaining it at all.
The card has a very good point. If you have 'something in mind' but do nothing about it, you are really no further ahead. You do have to 'embark and travel a few steps' in order to work out the next appropriate action. You can't just hope everything falls into place without any intervention from you. Such an obvious concept but easy to forget when planning. Planning can become another way to put off doing anything.
Wishing you all decisive, guided, appropriate action,
