Someone asked if they could pull a card for me...a Tarot reading. They were practicing for an upcoming party and could use the practice time to prepare. I said yes, provided they didn't tell me any scary shit, and they could only tell me good news. The card pulled was 8 Pentacles Reversed. Now I am not sharing the intimate details of the reading, but I can share what this card means. And I must say this speaks volumes of where I am right now. What I find stunning is the accuracy of the reading and the timing of the reading. My life is changing.

are the qualities of "not pushing" to make things happen, not
resisting or holding back - but flowing naturally with the direction being
presented. When your ambitions are limited or your view point is too near
sighted, when you find that you are too concerned about your
"ego" and image - recognize that these surroundings provide the
sense of "false security" which is causing you to want quick
results and not to be content to work and learn in the proper manner.
