Two Reversals and the Illusion of Safety
I pulled a card for myself to post today, and I got Protecting Treasure (reversed). I was kinda 'meh' about it for some reason--I didn't want to post it. Then I pulled a second card: Sacred Pool (reversed). I decided to post them together (the text shown is excerpts for both cards), and I was struck by the similar ideas and energy of the duo. Both seem to be about dimming one's light, not taking risks, assuming a sort of passive/victim stance. With my south node in Pisces (shadow side being the victim) there is a tendency to passivity in my nature--one which I'm thankfully able to periodically overcome with the more fiery parts of my nature.
Lately I've felt fairly defeated by my blahness and lack of goals. I try to come up with something and it just lacks oomph. It doesn't feel right. It doesn't lead anywhere. And I am sure there's that self-sabotage going on which is not enabling me to move anything on to the next level.
So I'm going to see how to flip these reversals around...
