Welcome to this month’s general card reading. I hope that it will resonate with those of you who read it and you will find it helpful.
Cards duplicated in the last 6 months:
January and February – 9 of Swords
December and February – 6 of Cups
September, October and February – King of Pentacles
September and February – The Devil
The duplicate cards are
showing quite a mixed bag this month. There is a feeling that our dreams are about to come to fruition, tied up with fear and anxiety about the future, the possibility of a bit more money showing up and the recognition that we need to do some work on ourselves in order to eliminate bad habits. It could be a bit of a moody month!
As we start off this month there is a feeling of peace and tranquility, of knowing where our heart lies and that our dreams are about to come to fruition. A good positive start to the month!
The first part of February is showing success and the acknowledgement of achievement from those around us. Some of us don’t embrace what success is and think it’s about money, big promotions, a flashy car and we need to adjust our perception of the word itself. For me, success is when we help someone carry a heavy load – whether it is physical or
mental. It’s when we rescue an animal and save and/or enhance its life by so doing. It’s when we help our children navigate the world around them. Or when we give our time to volunteer in our community. My perception of success is being instrumental in the empowerment and success of others – that is a life well
lived! It is also the end of an era and we will get our rewards for the efforts we have made thus far – hence the importance of the view we have of the word success. The rewards are very different for those who have achieved personal success by abusing others, and those that have achieved personal success by enabling others to be successful too.
In the middle part of the month there is the need to tread carefully around others. Tact and diplomacy are the key words. Trying to make progress by aggressive and pushy means just won’t work – a softly, softly approach is the order of the day. So, if tempted to use sharp words, count to 10 and
reassess. There is help on hand to lighten our load – whether it is our physical family and friends, or our loved ones in Spirit. We won’t be asked to carry a heavier load than we are able to and some circumstances around us will start being resolved. This could be where the rewards for our efforts come into play – how many people will rush forward to help a kind
and generous person in comparison to helping someone who is deemed to be treacherous?
Towards the end of February we need to be vigilant because the positive energy of the beginning of the month could be starting to wane. The old familiar guilts, regrets and fears for the future could be creeping back in if we aren’t very careful. If that is the case, we should count our blessings and immerse ourselves in positive people, stories etc., until the negative tendencies start to drift away. It’s a good reminder to not take ourselves too seriously – go to a party, or throw a party, go to the cinema or out for a meal, take the dog, cat or yourself out for a walk – it’s time to lighten up as all things eventually pass!
As we come to the end of the month it’s a good time for self-reflection and a commitment to banish the negative beliefs and habits that are holding us back. Do we listen to harbingers of doom? Are we being kind to our bodies? Are we reckless with our
money? What do we personally want to change about ourselves that will lead to a better life experience?
Our luck throughout the month King Midas has shown up and unexpected money could be coming our way. This can be a pay rise, a legacy, a win – it doesn’t matter where the abundance
comes from, but it will enable us to navigate our way forward a bit more smoothly.
I hope that you manage to keep the energy high and positive throughout February and keep any fears and anxieties at bay – after all, we manifest our own reality, so we have the choice of a Fabulous February or a Fearful February – I know which one I would prefer!
