Book: Conscious choice to retreat, Confidence, mental agility, peace, and composure are the gifts of this card
Guidance: Go within and calm your mind, listen closely to your intuition, stay connected to your feelings, do not run away, be prepared to take action
I love this card as it shows someone who is not being passive and not just sitting there waiting for a decision to happen. It seems this person is actively choosing to make a decision and accepts that going within is part of that process. What I sometimes struggle with in going within is letting go of the fear and the mental chatter as those are the two things that always trip me up. What helps is when I am able to let go of my preconceptions and choose to listen to the goddess. When I can do that, I can listen to my intuition. I know that I am being led right now and I'm not sure exactly what the path is, but I know that there is a path and it is being shown to me.
There is a part of me that would just love to say F* it and go live on a mountaintop somewhere and not have any worries or responsibilities. However, the truth of the matter is that we always have responsibilities and we always have cares and worries. I think I'm still feeling jealous because even though on paper I have the better life, it seems that John has the less stressed life as he just gets to live on government funding in North Carolina while I have to work my ass off to keep moving forward. In my perfect world, I'd spend all day doing research and writing, but I don't live in my perfect world and I need to pay the bills. I guess I just keep putting one foot in front of the other and keep working to figure things out. At the end of the day, that is really all I can do.
What my intuition is also telling me about this card is that I need to make some time to actively search for my right path. I need to make some time where I can let go of all the weirdness and all the work and just go within.
