1. This is what it is all about, the core of the issue.
2. This is not important now, you should not do this.
3. This is very important now, this you should do.
4. It will lead to this.
Cards are layed in a small cross
Looking forward. Inner strength.
Book: The message of strength reminds you that you have more strength, power and courage than you realize. Be aware of two extremes - letting it control you and do not deny your own power.
2. The Chariot
Movement. Spinning wheels.
Book: Willpower and control. Recognize your own strength and ability to maintain order in the midst of chaos. Know that you can achieve more than you think you can. Celebrate your accomplishements. Be aware of turning away from ideas that puzzle you.
3. Nine of Wands
Book: Things did not turn out as you planned, and you aren't sure why. Take time to reflect, to determine what happened. Learn from the situation and resume "battle". Be aware of despair.
4. Two of swords
A blind choice.
Book: The battle between head and heart remains unresolved. You are faced with a decision you don't want to make. Look squarely at the situation. Likely, you know what to do and are afraid to make the choice. Be aware of ignoring the situation for too long.
I'll record more later.
Basically, I have more strength and power than I realize. I deny myself this aspect by continuing to think that I'm powerless or hopeless in my situation. If I don't turn away ideas that seem to need some "figuring out" and don't despair, in the end I'll know what to do. This won't make it easy, and I may be afraid...but if I ignore what's going on, things won't get better.
