“Wise people seek solutions; The ignorant only cast blame.” -Tao Te Ching
Thor the Warrior Kitten is not having any of what I’m serving this week. He looks like he’s laying blame, but I suspect his solution is for me to leave him alone.
Hurt feelings are on my mind this week. Who did what, who said what, who can be trusted and who cannot? Maybe it’s leftover from the Scorpio new moon? I don’t know. But tender feelings and frustrations are on my radar.
I don’t dig the place that line of thinking can take me sometimes. Doesn’t mean I always catch myself before I go there, but I always feel kind of crummy about it once I’m there. Every human being alive has been wronged–and wronged others. Ugly side effect of imperfection. So why do we get all obsessive about one or the other side of that equation? The Guilt Trip Express just never arrives at a lovely destination.
If you find yourself hopping on the “how dare they” train, ask yourself, “Does it accomplish anything?” Because we have a finite amount of energy. I’d rather expend mine on moving forward than looking back.
Next week, it looks like we’ll have some opportunity to put such resolutions to the test. I’m seeing themes surrounding allies and enemies, blame and solutions.
Monday, Judgement Reversed: Who’s at fault? Don’t know. Don’t care. What matters today is fixing it. Take care of business and do what needs to be done. The laundry list of blame can be filled out another day if it’s even helpful at all. Priorities here are functional and pragmatic: damage control, moving forward, what comes next.
Tuesday, Ace of Wands: Do what you can accomplish on your own, even if it’s just a little start. It’s a move in the right direction. Creative spark can steer you toward some interesting solutions if you’re open to the possibilities.
Wednesday, Page of Swords: Be clear with your words to make sure your messages are heard. Say what you mean and all that. Boundaries are helpful. Do be aware of feelings–this guy can blurt at times. But still, don’t sacrifice the primary meaning by putting too many frills on the message. Kind, clear and matter-of-fact should work.
Thursday, Ten of Swords: Ouch. That’s all, just ouch…Okay. Deception can come to light. I’m getting this like overhearing what was supposed to be a candid comment and it’s upsetting, not consistent with your previous understanding.
Friday, Eight of Wands Reversed: Confusing day. Chaotic, mixed signals, crossed wires. Ground and regroup as required!
Saturday, The Lovers: Seek comfort in the arms of another! Or at least in the company of those in tune with YOU. And hey, if that’s a party of one, so be it!
Sunday, King of Cups Reversed: Keep emotional floodgates locked down, lest you overreact. Feelings are not right or wrong. They just are. But post-meltdown regret can be very real. Reign it in, or nap it out.
Overview/Advice, Strength: Okay, this is encouraging! It doesn’t take superhuman effort to stay on course this week. Just steady, guided pressure. You CAN do it. You merely need to remain fully present and aware. If you stay on top of yourself, the week will not get out of hand.
Affirmation: Don’t fall in love with ideas. The same would go for perceptions, stories, worldviews, ideology, hero status, victim status, and miscellaneous convictions. Consider your “knowledge” a working theory and you’re on track. Be OPEN to what there is to see.Certainty is the enemy of growth. #quotes Click To Tweet
