It’s never fun drawing a particularly “negative” card, especially when you can feel the other cringe. The beauty of Tarot, however, is that we can treat this as a warning and find ways around it. Don’t view this card as a bad day. View the Eight of Arrows as an obstacle to overcome today! After all, his lantern remains lit, symbolising the glint of hope for the challenge to come.
It really is no surprise this card was drawn today. Most of us are going back to work or school after a long holiday weekend– just that thought alone is a struggle, let alone the actual activity happening! Take this day to allow your positive energy to break through the negative. Easier said than done, but really dig deep to find the motivation for today. Overcome the struggle. It might be as easy as an extra cup of coffee! Or bring an extra sweet to work or school with you today. Anything that simply overjoys you! If able, find a time to be alone and just take a few deep breaths. Allow yourself to find solitude, stillness and relaxation some time during the day. If you’re more of an extrovert, don’t be afraid to turn to others for your motivation. Crack a few extra jokes with coworkers and allow them to feel your newfound positive energy as well. Show others that it isn’t so bad out there!
Until next time!
