POSITION 1 – PAST
This position represents the past where the situation originated. https://www.facebook.com/Crystalgypsy2/
TWO OF SWORDS – A relationship may feel tense, even if no one is prepared to acknowledge this at the present time. The Two of Swords indicates that you are now entering a ceasefire, but it is important to realise that the underlying issues will need to be resolved before any significant progress can be made.
You may feel that you are working at cross purposes, that you are reluctant to commit yourself or that you feel that you need to wait for the balance to shift before anything changes.
POSITION 2 – PRESENT
The present situation.
STRENGTH – This card is centered on character and the ability to rise above emotions and desires. Once we learn how to control the emotions we then have to learn to rise above them and apply something more.
This is an extension of the self and the lesson of what we received from the Chariot. We must now use fortitude and patience to receive the desired outcome that is just beyond the horizon. There is still work to be done and now that we have learned to control the emotions we must apply that power of wisdom with a slight touch of patience. That is the true strength and it comes from inside.
To control the beast within and to tame our human desire. The will now require both determination and great courage. The power is within the soul and this can be a long process. Strength is already inside the questionnaire and they are going on a spiritual journey if the will allows.
POSITION 3 – FUTURE
The most likely outcome for the near future.
THE HERMIT – This card is based on a journey taken by the questionnaire alone. This is a path that requires that person to become ‘Hermit-like’ and seek answers from within, they must listen to that all important inner voice, trust in their own intuition and find the answers they seek without outside guidance or intervention.
In order to achieve inner peace one must take what they have learned from others and from life experience, both good and bad and turn it into their own personal wisdom. This can never be from another, but can only be acquired from within. This is a solitary journey that is taken alone and much of the world is shut out. This path can feel like a dark cave, but after the knowledge has turned itself into personal wisdom life resumes and all is there as it was before one left it. However it may be viewed from a different, calmer perspective.
The only thing that has changed is the self. This is a card of sacrifice and all else must be temporarily left behind. https://www.facebook.com/Crystalgypsy2/
