Eight of Pentacles (Reversed)

Eight of Pentacles
Hanson-Roberts
First Impressions:  The young man's tools are carefully laid out and he clearly takes pride in his work as he is willing to make pentacles over and over and continually review what he does.  Reverse this card could indicate sloppiness, a loss of energy, or a loss of fortune.

Book:  Seeking success without effort, need to evaluate whether you are in the right job, the seeker is wasting his talents, move forward with a project

Guidance:  Move forward on a project

Journaling:

For me, I know this card is not telling me that I'm not working hard enough on my day job because I don't know how I could work any harder.  It could be telling me that I'm not working hard enough on Midwives of Change.  I have been so busy and so tired that I haven't been able to put the time into things that matter to me.  I certainly hope things settle down, because I don't know how much longer I can keep up this pace.

I'm still not positive what the message of this card was a year ago, but I made the decision earlier this year to let go of Midwives of Change.  I made that decision when I realized that I wasn't living my life for me, but I was using myself as a guinea pig to see what methods worked so that I could write about them.  I want my life to matter to me and not just matter to other people. 

I struggled with the decision to put my Tarot Journal online because that seemed to be just one more way to live my life for others instead of myself.  However, once I committed to Swedish Death Cleansing and realized that putting my journal online meant I could keep the lessons and ditch the hurtful comments and whining, I decided that putting it online was what was best for me.  I also established Rules for Readers so that they understand I'm not putting myself out there as a Tarot Guru, but simply living my life.
