July Tea Leaf Fortunes Reading Balances Work and Play
Admittedly, as you may've noticed, I haven't been as active on the blog lately. Sorry about that! I've just been sort of 'meh' about it, and when that happens I try to go with the flow and not force it. Although I do still like playing with my cards, and I do still find myself doing it most days, I feel like the readings are a bit perfunctory, and 'skim the surface' rather than go deep. You know the feeling, right? When things are felt on a deeper level, when you're engaged in what you're doing...things click into place. Since that hasn't been happening, and I suspect the reason is mainly because I'm distracted by other things, like trying to figure out a balance for the summer, I have mostly not been posting my readings, since I often feel I'm not doing the readings justice.
In addition to the usual summer distractions, I have felt my focus go toward practical projects rather than esoteric things. We painted our dining room and then the bar/seating area in the kitchen. I seem to think more along those lines these days. I think that's how our energy and creativity flows.
In any event, here's my July forecast using the Tea Leaf Fortune Cards. I felt like this one clicked for me and I wasn't struggling with it in any way. The July card actually came up without me pulling it to represent July, so I went with it! So, in terms of cards received, we have Hammock, talking about a vacation. In this case, I just assume it means the summer break. And even though the Boot card seems at first to be contrary to taking a break, it made total sense to me. Recently, I've realized I do need to increase my efforts in some areas in order to see change in them. The one I mentioned already is getting some overdue house projects done (re-painting the badly painted rooms, for instance), some of which have gone undone for a year and a half.
The Dark Woman next to the Eagle card seems personal, like it's telling me that if I put in the time and energy (Boot) then I can get some things done in this summer interval. It jives with what I've been feeling and serves as a positive focus for productivity balanced with relaxation and self-care.
