Seven of Fire – Nine of Fire – Integration (Temperance)
Affirmation / Thought for the Day: “The sun shall always rise upon a new day and there shall always be a rose garden within me. Yes, there is a part of me that is broken, but my broken soil gives way to my wild roses.”
~C. JoyBell C.
The transformation is ongoing and you are surprised -on a daily basis- of the changes and the seemingly unending reservoir of your inner-strength well.
Life is full of challenges and changes and we must continually find new and creative ways to rise to the occasion to face and overcome. Otherwise, we become stale and stagnant, stinking up the place rather than breathing any fresh air into our life.
The Nine of Fire brings a strengthening sense of your inner growth process. Trust in the process and in yourself. Recent events could shake your resolve and cause you to falter. However, this is the time you need to hold fast, learn the lessons presented by the obstacles and turn them into opportunities instead. And, although your world right now feels topsy-turvy, you cannot allow these outside problems to interfere with your inner growth. Everything in the Universe is in flux and we must adjust to keep up. Don’t fear these changes because it’s just another step towards your life in balance. Every misstep you perceive is really just another step in your journey – a step towards your next lesson and the next phase. Right now you want to stay more in the middle of the road and at a steady pace. Stay true to yourself, have faith in your journey, and keep moving forward. The changes going on within you need time to fully develop, you just need allow the process to continue; travel lightly allowing the road to guide you rather than steering your way.
Below is a spread I designed several years ago that could shed some light for you with turning obstacles into opportunities. If you try it, please feel free to share. 🙂 For this spread I use two decks, one for the foundation and one for the steps. You can decide what works best for you.
Here we will look at these positions:
A = obstacle B = Opportunity
1a-b – The main obstacle/concern at this time. Where the biggest opportunity can be found.
2a-b – Home; your home environment, whether this is an actual place or where your heart is.
3a-b – Career; Your present job. Can be anything from a home-maker to a corporate executive.
4a-b – Family; can include anyone or any family situation with relatives or extended family.
5a-b – Relationships; How is your love life? Any relationship that is of importance to you.
6a-b – Spiritual; Personal growth.
