I wonder if my family will ever accept me for who I am?
King of Pentacles (Reversed) | 2. Ace of Swords | 3. The Moon (Reversed) | 4. Justice
While I normally would only draw one or two cards for a Tarot Tuesday reading, I felt this question needed something more in depth. It’s an emotionally heavy, important question, and one that I have asked myself plenty of times over the past few years as I’ve come to realise who I am and what I am. You see, sometimes no matter what you do you can’t win the approval of someone you wish you could. Family is no exception. It’s a hard, painful thing to come to accept sometimes. While I’m not saying your family won’t accept you, I feel that if you’re asking this to begin with, secretly you know the answer. You’re just looking for confirmation from an external source. So, instead of focusing primarily on whether or not your family will accept you, I want you to focus on loving yourself for who you are. This reading comes at a perfect time with Valentine’s Day right around the corner. A close relationship with another person often mirrors the relationship you have with yourself, and it’s important to understand and nurture yourself like you would want someone to do for you. You’re the only person you share your entire life with – make sure you enjoy your own company!
Something to love about myself. – King of Pentacles (Reversed)
Your work ethic. You’re a hard working, down to earth person with a lot of common sense. You’ve got a hands on attitude and won’t take no for an answer, believing your way to be the best or most efficient. Your motto is practically “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it” – which can become negative if you don’t watch out. But this work ethic keeps you going, keeps you motivated, and it’s something that people trust in you for.
Where in life can I be more patient with myself? – Ace of Swords
If you’ve been working to stand up for something you believe in, this is where you need to slow it down a bit. The decisions you’re making may have life changing consequences, and you need to think it through. Simplify your situation, don’t be distracted by negativity around you or within you, and don’t rush yourself to do anything right this second.
Where in life can I be kinder to myself? – The Moon (Reversed)
You’ve been experiencing a lot of fears and anxiety lately, some deep emotional issues that were previously sitting just beneath the surface. While it’s uncomfortable to deal with, it’s okay to feel these things. It’s okay to be anxious, it’s okay to be afraid. And it’s okay to be unhappy with yourself, too. But you can’t be stuck in this rut forever, and you can’t beat yourself up over feeling these things either. You need to believe in yourself and know it’s possible to find balance.
Energies and strategies to draw on. – Justice
You’re at a point in your life where you deserve to be. Things are turning out in your favour, and if you’ve been working hard towards a goal then that hard work is about to pay off. Now is a perfect time to sit down and make any adjustments you might need to keep things in balance, but don’t stress yourself out over it. Keep a cool, level head and do what’s necessary. Relax.
