just a spread to figure out what to do with all of this FEAR

If you pay attention at all, you know that it’s tough being a person with a uterus right now. You know it’s tough to breathe and think when you feel threatened by people so much more powerful than you. It’s hard to imagine being of use to anyone when it feels like your body and agency are valued so little, while those who violently violate bodies still walk free consistently and often. I’m feeling lost, and I’m feeling ANGRY, and I’m turning to cards for some guidance.

WHAT ENERGIES AM I EXPERIENCING AT THE MOMENT

ECLIPSE 

“An eclipse blocked out the sun in your life - something is making it easy to forget how bright your circumstances are. Be it illness, loss,  failure, or another tough situation, your pain is overshadowing the lessons you can learn from it. Eclipses may be dark, but they are short-lived. You’ll find the positivity creeping back around the edges of this hurt soon.”

A lot of sadness, a lot of worries, and a lot of uncertainty causing me to forget all of the good things I have, all of the power I have over my own future, all of the magic I can see and feel in my life. I’m okay, I’m okay, I’m okay. Hard times will breed better times. I will be toughened by this year, not broken down by it. The sun will be back soon. I just need to keep following the light. 



WHAT CAN I USE TO HELP ME PUSH THROUGH THESE FEARS AND INTO A PLACE OF HOPE?


LANTERN

Eyes on the prize. Eyes towards the light. I need to get in touch with my inner light, but also write my goals down, illustrate them, bring them into the world as something tangible that I can see. I am going to make a manifestation candle. I am going to SPEAK my desires and follow the things that make me feel warm and bright. Centering myself on the things that really matter, that really light me up, will help keep me focused on the incredible possibilities of the future instead of the things that scare me.
