Affirmation / Thought for the Day: “Everyone suffers some injustice in life, and what better motivation than to help others not suffer in the same way. ~Bella Thorne
Today’s post hits very close to home and could make some readers uncomfortable. So, I’m not going to address any specific issue because if this reading applies to you at all, you know the specifics that are relevant only to you.
It deals with either issues from your childhood and/or from your past. Sometimes the past has a way of creeping in and bringing with it memories that are best left in the past. This can feel like a never ending process and I suspect it is. But, it’s how we deal with these memories/issues when they do crop up. You can’t ignore them, that just seems to make matters worse. Instead, I find when this happens that if I spend a little time and acknowledge them (memories) they are less of an issue than they could be.
We’ve seen these three cards several times over the last few weeks, not always together but they still keep repeating, which suggests that an issue needs attention. The Six of Cups I know has come up repeatedly.
The Six of Cups represents nostalgia, childhood, the past impinging on the present, or wishing for more simpler, less complicated times. It also can bring to light the avoidance of negative childhood issues.
The Hermit represents, solitude, contemplation, knowledge or illumination from the past. It can also represent being held back by the past, living in the past or ignoring lessons of the past.
Justice represents getting to the heart of the issue. Advocating for right causes rather than socially popular causes. And then there is the lack of justice or the tipping of the scales through corruption. It is this feeling of in-justice that is (IMHO) the heart of the issue.
Are you being called upon to be an advocate? If so, this can be the healing experience you need. It’s a win-win because when you advocate for someone or bring light to an injustice, you’re not only helping to make things better for them, you can benefit and heal in the process.
