Book: World of imagination, deepest hopes and fears, danger of getting lost
Guidance: Bring your visions down to earth, balance creative inspiration with practicality
In most decks, this card speaks to me of delusion and of being taken in by the dark side, being consumed by food, by alcohol, be desire. However, when I look at it as a card of choices and inspiration, it speaks to me of all the things I can have, if I am willing to do the work. I can even have all of them, but having lived through the "you can have it all era," I know enough to know that I can't have it all at once, but I can have it all in sequence. Looking at this card from a practical standpoint, I feel as if I'm being asked to choose what is most important and to focus on energy on that, once I've got that plate spinning, I can choose something else.
As much as I hate to admit it, my two priorities right now have to be work and school. Work is what pays the bills and keeps the money coming in. And school is my future as it is what fascinates me and what keeps me motivated. I also know that once I can put that MA after my name, it will help me sell a lot more articles, books etc. That doesn't mean I won't still work on Cairn by Cairn and putter around my book, but I will stop beating myself up over not spending a lot of time and energy on those activities. I work at an insane job and trying to build a practice is really hard. I need to start giving myself enough credit for the things that I do and not beat myself up because I cannot do more.
