Journey To The Past - Anastasia
So some part of you used to be a sword. Maybe do a little digging to find out what and try to tap into that part of yourself.
1) Qualities/aspects you already have -
-- 10 of Cups - Your sword comes out when your with family. Maybe you're less afraid to be critical or to speak your mind at home.
2) Qualities/aspects to work on that will serve you best -
-- 2 of Pentacles - Be flexible. Spontaneous. Put yourself in new situations and go with the flow.
3) Why you would want to be more Sword-y -
-- 10 of Swords - This card was very insistent that it was the right card for this position. What I'm getting is fear. Something about fear. Being more sword-like will force you be a bit less timid, a bit more confident. You don't have to do a personality overhaul or change who you are at your core, just a little about how you communicate and a little about how you think.
4) Most important action to take -
-- 3 of Cups - Make friends. Not easy, I know. I'm terrible at it. But this will give you a chance to be around new people, people who don't know the old you. It's a chance to reinvent yourself. Maybe over drinks since the girls on the card are all holding chalices.
5) Additional advice -
-- 10 of Wands - This isn't a change that has to be made instantly or all at once. Keep it small, keep it manageable. Decide Sunday night "I'm going to strike up conversation with 2 strangers this week" or "This week I'll investigate that anime club". Stick to the resolutions you make.Changing core aspects of yourself is going to be an uphill battle.
-- 3 of Wands - Focus on the future. What will you have to be, what will you have to learn to be able to move forward to the point you aim to get to? Does your future career require you be skilled verbally? Authoritative? Able to give (constructive) criticisms? Now's the time to start working on it.
So I'm gonna ask... What can I do to keep my poltergeist from popping up again? Alternatively, should I try to learn to harness it, control it? Is this my psychic gift or just a result of stress? Heeeellllllp me tarot friends
