The Daily Deskhenge:
Welcome back, friends! Your Oracle is nice and rested (mostly), and had a lovely holiday (mostly). We hope you all did as well. 🙂
Today’s deskhenge is about what the problem is, and what’s driving it. The card on the right (4 of Swords) is showing what the problem is: complacency. A mental rut. Thinking that’s too confined and narrow, and definitely yawn-inducing. The card on the left (6 of Cups) is what’s driving it: too much looking backward, not enough looking forward. Almost a fascist control of the creative processes in the name of guarding that which is most precious. Numbing out with fantasy and daydreams. You’re not seeing what’s really going on, so you’re not identifying the REAL problem, so you’re not coming up with solutions for that which is REALLY wrong. And sitting still and thinking about the problem is not going to solve it. Your Oracle knows all about this, so she humbly requests that you take her word for it. Get up, get moving, and discover what’s wrong by bumping into it. Then when you’re sure you know what the problem actually is, move to solve it using creative thinking and feeling that is rooted in the here and now. Leave the shadowy echoes of the past IN the past. And if you’re scared, ask yourself what the hell you’re trying to protect that’s more valuable than living your life to the fullest?
