6 of Cups | The Devil | 5 of Rods (Wands) | The Hermit | 10 of Cups
For many of us, the air is thick with the desire to release and to heal the wounds of the past, but that can’t happen until we speak up about what took place. Sometimes this takes years, and you might continue to work on it now. It might feel uncomfortable to expose it, especially if part of your generational conditioning taught you not to question authority, to mind your own business, or to forget about it when someone in a position of power did something wrong. You may have been told to keep the trauma a secret, the people around you might not have wanted anyone else to know because they too felt helpless or ashamed. This only goes to show the systemic component of abuse, especially when those people who are in a position to help choose not to because they don’t know what to do or because they are too scared to call people out on their inappropriate and damaging behavior. As a collective, it feels like we are now in a position to peel back the layers and to expose the story. As difficult as that is, it is the right thing to do. As a collective, it is our job to listen and to support.
The message I am receiving is: For better or worse, you are not alone. Your trust was broken and you are now in a position to work on repairing that part of yourself. You might be reaching out to a group of people who experienced something similar and as a team working on repairing the damage. So many memories are returning to you, not all of them bad, but you are deeply aware that an innocent part of yourself was selfishly taken away. As you work to repair the damage, you become stronger and with time you will be able to heal yourself and others. After many years, I see you are now in a position to teach others that being part of a family is safe, even if you have to build it yourself and show those around you the right way to do it.
Monday: Six of Cups. The summer days of your youth were meant to be fun-filled and happy, and many of them were, but you also have memories others do not share – specifically the ones where you were forced to grow up before your time. It’s difficult to erase the memories that continue to haunt you, it’s also difficult to show up at family gatherings when some family members choose not to address the trauma that occurred. When trust is broken you remember it. Part of your emotional work is to learn how to trust again and to repair trust that has been broken.
Tuesday: The Devil. Today is a partial lunar eclipse and full moon in Capricorn. Today is a good day to question people in authority. You are also in a position to take back your personal power.
On an emotional level, those of you who were taught to suppress anger or sadness need to get it all out. It’s ok to be angry about what happened. It’s ok to yell or to scream or to cry. This is part of the spectrum of human emotion. You’ve processed what happened alone for long enough. Stop thinking and start feeling – your grief needs a physical release.
Wednesday: 5 of Rods. Some of you might be in group therapy or sharing what you know with others. I see some of you raising your voice collectively. You are more powerful as a group. Your knowledge will help other people. You are in position to rebuild your own life and to help others rebuild their lives. Part of this work is learning to rely on others and to trusts the people you are working with.
Thursday: The Hermit. The future looks bright. You took the necessary time to heal and you are ready to move forward. The trauma will always be a part of your experience, but that doesn’t mean you have to continue to process it and experience it. You’ve given it enough time. You are ready to move on.
Friday: 10 of Cups. Your experience taught you how to communicate effectively and to be discerning with building emotional relationships. You are now part of a family you love and you know you can trust.
