6 of Cups | The Hermit | Ace of Wands

What did you used to love doing? How can you reflect on your experiences from the past and grow from them? What new path is waiting for your attention and enthusiasm?

The 6 of Cups really speaks to me of the ways in which you used to learn – through experimentation, play, and taking emotional risks. Whether that was learning from the friendships you developed, or learning from your family of origin, or learning from the generosity of others (like the time your neighbor gave you a keyboard because they noticed yours needed some repair, or a friend gave you a mixed tape because they wanted to share some new music with you, or a parent gave you dance lessons, so you could learn more about dance). The 6 of Cups is a card of receptivity, emotional growth and gifts.

Maybe you are remembering you have some unfulfilled creative dreams, or someone from your past is reminding you about how you met. Maybe you are getting together with family members you haven’t seen for some time and they are reminding you of who you used to be.

When you shine a light into the past, what do you see? Did you learn from your environment? Or do some past mistakes or roads not taken continue to haunt you? The Hermit card tells me you have spent plenty of time thinking about the choices you were given. If you made mistakes, you have come to terms with how you dealt with any problem that came your way. If you have been fantasizing about “the way things used to be” remember that your memory might be playing some tricks on you. The presence of The Hermit tells me that only through honest reflection are you able to truly hear, and to see how your life choices created who you are at this moment in time. At some point, you needed to guide yourself away from a painful past, a painful memory and order to become the person you are right now.  You no longer have rose colored glasses on. You can look at your past with maturity and honesty, knowing that everyone did there best, and there was a mixture of experiences, some good and some bad. But you learned.

You are now being offered an opportunity. A fresh start. You might feel a sense of renewal. A surge of creative potential. By starting something entirely new, you have the ability to free yourself from whatever cords or attachments want to keep you the same.

Sometimes friends and family do not want to see that we’ve grown or changed. Sometimes people in our environment have preconceived ideas of who we are. You now have the ability to  free yourself from whatever is haunting you.

A bright new future awaits. You have the potential to do great things. Build on what you already know, do not live your life as you did before, create something entirely new from what you have spent your lifetime learning.

King of Swords | Queen of Cups | Justice

When you decide to establish boundaries, it’s not always a personal attack on someone’s character. You might have allowed some poor behavior to occur for some time, but now, you have had enough of it and you get to decide. What do you want to feel energetically, emotionally, or spiritually? Who belongs in your space? You don’t need to tolerate experiences that leave you feeling exhausted, drained, or depleted. The energetic vampire is not always aware of their power to drain others. But some energetic vampires do know they have the power to drain and they know they have the power to project their own emotions and to manipulate what you feel if you have not put the appropriate boundaries in place. This has been a topic of discussion in some form for a while now. I know many of my readers are empathic, and a lot of the work for an empath is with protection, creating energetic boundaries and simply clearing the emotion gunk you pick up from others. Not everyone in your sphere is ethical or appropriate when it comes to your boundaries. I feel there really isn’t enough written about the ethics of energetic manipulation. Did you give your consent? No? Then why does this person get so much access to you or your world? Sometimes when we have a difficult time creating the necessary space, Lady Justice steps in to clear the space for us and she does so without regard to feelings. Justice can be a liberating force and even if it feels uncomfortable for something to be taken away from you or for your world to shift or change. Justice is in the business of creating balance. The message is: What is changing needed to be changed. Karma (Justice) is doing her work and she is clearing your energy field for you. The lessons from the past couple of years have strengthened your boundaries and now you know, you know from experience. It took a long time for this balance to be created, but now you get yourself back and as you reflect on the past couple of years, you know that you needed to learn this about others and yourself. This ending, this change, this shift will give you the strength you need to live your life the way you want to live it. No one has control of your free will but you. You were never comfortable with your free will be taken away. You never gave your consent for your power to be claimed as someone else’s prize. Moving forward, you know you did the right thing. You can learn from your mistakes. You now know that you don’t need to keep making the mistake of allowing people who are not a good match for your sensitive world access to it.
