Tarot reading for the week of 18 June to 25 June 2018

The giving and the taking and the flow of life

Just like there are cycles and seasons in life, so is there an ebb and flow of energy and sometimes we are on the receiving end and other times we tend to be the givers.

Some of us have a huge problem with receiving from others because we sit with the belief that we don’t deserve to be loved or spoil or given gifts. As a result we tend to overcompensate by giving too much to others. 

Giving too much brings its own set of problems because it may lead to resentment when we feel that the balance isn’t right and that we are being taken advantage of. 

So it is very important for you to look at the balance between giving and receiving and where the boundaries need to be implemented. 
This may also apply to one’s energy and feeling totally depleted after spending time with certain people. They may not even be aware of how they are absorbing your energy in your company. You only realise it when you get home and feel totally drained and depressed.

It’s very important to remain very aware of the ebb and flow in relationships and the boundaries you set as well how much time and energy you give to YOU. If you give too much of yourself to others you won’t have much energy and time left for yourself and your own needs. 
Another aspect of giving too much is when someone takes too much responsibility for the well-being and state of another’s life.  We have the perception that this other person wouldn’t survive without us and would be lost if we were not around to pick up the pieces when they falter. The tendency then is to make that other person our soul purpose for living and to lose our own identity in the process. Then one day we wake up and realise that every person has their own journey in life and that by taking on their problems, we are just preventing them from learning the lessons that they need to integrate.

Where to you stand in terms of how the pendulum of give and take swings? Do you need to make some adjustments in your life? This is a time of contemplation and assessment. Take a moment to consider which changes need to be implemented before taking action.  

The supporting card for this week’s reading is the Hermit:
The Hermit
The Hermit is illustrated as an old man wrapped in long robes reminiscent of a monk.  He clutches a staff and holds a lamp in front to guide him on his way.   He symbolizes the search for truth and the discarding of all distractions.  This card suggests that there is a need for solitude and to give yourself time to reflect and contemplate.  You are guided to plan carefully and contemplate before making a decision.  Take some time from the hustle and bustle of daily living to think and plan.  If you need advice, confide in someone that you trust.   Your self awareness and self knowing will prove useful in achieving greater wisdom and understanding. This card is especially appropriate if you are  wondering which path or direction to take in life, because you’ll soon be able to reach a satisfying conclusion and things will become much better.  It is important to stand back from the situation, keep an open mind and consider all your options.  The Hermit may also be gently reminding you that you don’t yet know all the facts – perhaps a new aspect of a current situation will soon be revealed.
