This card has inherent disappointment woven through it. This disappointment can come in the form of a loss, betrayal, unkindness from a friend, or other form of heartache. Perhaps you’re seeing something for what it truly is and that’s a bit of a slap in the face. Rather than experiencing a loss or betrayal, plans may have fallen through or things didn’t turn out as well as you’d hoped. At any rate, this glum mood can prevent you from being awake to and available for enjoying the good things in your life.
I don’t mean this to be a wet blanket for your entire month of October, by any means. I’m not feeling like the near future is filled with one disaster after another; it’s more like a lesson is being offered to us. IF we suffer a setback, we have the choice to wallow in a lousy mood or reflect on what went wrong and figure out how not to do “that” again. Accept your lesson, accept the past is gone, accept what is now—and not what you’d hoped— and turn your face forward.
Because life is all about contrasts, having a less-than-happy moment is an opportunity to feel your heart in a heavy state. Therefore, nurture your bruised feelings, recognize them, and remember them in times of joy. Your high times will feel even higher when you can compare them to the low times.
Let’s hope you have no low times this coming month, but if you do, give thanks to Universe for the reminder and move forward.
Happy October Everyone!
