Free Tarot Reading: Handling Your Piece of the Puzzle

Tarot message for this week:

10 of Cups     8 of Cups     5 of Wands

Socially, you want community, you want to be around people who “get you”. Finding your people is sometimes an undertaking, especially if you notice your family of origin doesn’t create the type of community you crave. But you know what? You can attract the community you need.

Be open, lead with your heart, but remember to create boundaries where appropriate. You only have so much energy to share with other people in this world, so make your choices wisely.

The advice?

Let go of toxic relationships, take responsibility for how you have used your emotional opportunities.

By taking stock and being honest, what’s the worst that can happen? You might choose to “work it out” with the people you are in conflict with, but be prepared to let go of some control. Handle your own piece of the emotional puzzle and allow others to handle their piece.

It’s ok to walk away from conflict; work with your strengths. You can’t control the actions of others but you can control your own.

Some questions to consider:

On an emotional level, who are you responsible for? Who do you need to establish emotional boundaries with? By addressing your fears about the relationship, how does it empower you to make choices that are right for you? How can you take a step back and deal with your part of the relationship?

You will find a solution by handling the details of your own life. If someone doesn’t “get you” or your method, it’s on them. You’ve decided to walk away from the heat.

If you are interested in exploring the juicy details of your life, come and find me! I have an new tarot residency on Nob Hill in Portland, Oregon.

5 of Wands: Can’t We All Just Get Along?

The card of the day is the 5 OF WANDS.

Can’t we all just get along? Are you with me or against me? The walls have ears.

Some people you work with will never recognize or acknowledge your effort or achievements. So be it. You know you are working hard, so just continue to put your best foot forward and be as civil as you can be when you are working with others as part of a team. If you work with someone who likes to talk smack about other team members, do not engage in the gossip (even if you have something to contribute). It’s good to land somewhere in the middle, Switzerland.

My advice is to: Smile, know when to stay silent, and hold your head up high.

Be sure to document all of your project achievements by making sure your portfolio, resume, and list of recommendations are all up to date. Maybe you need to let your manager know what a good job you’ve been doing ( if that person doesn’t already know). Take comfort in the fact that at least you have the skills to handle your piece of the puzzle, even if others do not.
