In this card we see the man clinging tightly to what he has. He fears that if he lets go even a little; he may lose everything. That very mindset can lead to conditions of limitation and lack. This card serves as a reminder to focus on abundance and opportunity. Time to surrender that false sense of control that comes with too much focus on the material world. Focus on gratitude and abundance, not only on an intellectual level – but partake in prayers and ritual that allow you to feel that abundance and gratitude in your heart. When you focus your whole being on abundance; you draw more of the same to you on all levels: materially, spiritually, and emotionally.
Position 1: Background | Present Concern
Focuses on room for growth, finding a safe space, effort, and an idea whose time has come. A tendency to fear ruin or lack or to become too attached to things/conditions of the physical realm.
Position 2: Your Drive and Motivations
You want to find happiness and be successful in all of your ventures. You are caught between the desire for change and the comfort of familiarity.
Position 3: What’s Blocking You – Fears and Subconscious
Unknowns trouble you a great deal, you tend to “what if” yourself into a frenzy. There may be a tendency to cling to the past out of fear to move forward because of this. Business discouragements may also be indicated here, and/or fears of loss in one area of your life are effecting the other aspects as well.
Position 4: Perspective and Further Awareness – What you Need to See Clearly
Sometimes we have to move into the new and unknown even when it is scary if we want to further our growth and progress. Sticking with old ways out of familiarity is stagnation. Don’t be so hard on yourself over “failures” that you talk yourself out of getting up and trying again. Release the need to try to control situations out of fear.
Position 5: Course of Action
Look at all of life’s challenges as lessons that further your growth and understanding. Release your worries, and allow room for your Divine plan to take shape. Many blessings await you when you release the false sense of control that comes with trying to control outcomes in advance.
