Our tarotized quote today is inspired by the 5 of Wands from the Thelema Tarot (UK Amazon affiliate link). We have just entered the month of Leo and this card corresponds with Saturn in Leo, highlighting any limitations imposed from within or without. In Leo those limitations are about confidence levels, playfulness, romance, children, taking centre stage and generosity.
Eclipse season which began yesterday sees us navigate TWO New Moons in Leo so getting this message now from the Tarot is hugely helpful. Being aware that we are challenged in these areas can help us face the challenges head on.
Will you perceive these challenges as tests that help you grow stronger or will you view them as obstacles.
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
~ Wayne Dyer
Looking at things through a negative lens will make everything appear negative and you will bring yourself down through a downward spiral. Words like ‘difficult’ and ‘impossible’ have no meaning until we give them meaning. You can choose to see ‘I’m possible’ instead.
Will you choose your excuses today, or will you choose to push through them to your goal? We all have this choice and we all have challenges we need to push through.
See yourself as someone who chooses to tackle those challenges like a champion, Leo style. Believe that a solution to any challenge is out there and that the guidance you need to have YOUR breakthrough is available within you.
Surround yourself with the kind of people who support you in this process. Feed your mind and soul daily with the things that strengthen your resolve and give you a sense of peace so that you have the strength to keep going.
