“The happiest man on earth would be able to use the Mirror of Erised like a normal mirror, that is, he would look into it and see himself exactly as he is.”
~ Albus Dumbledore * Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”
Last week we looked at the ways we need to approach ourselves and others. There is too much at stake to trivialize the truth. Much of the world around us is not in disarray, and things are not normal. We cannot make it so. But we cannot linger just on words and thoughts. There is a need to pluck out the feelings from our own pin cushions. Our feelings and our hearts are the mechanism to carry those truths that can either bond or break us.
The reversed 10 of Cups can have either too much emphasis on the picture perfect world, or too little. We cannot look at all that we want through the lens of never having enough. This is not the foundation to bring more onto our hearths. We must be happy with who we are, what we look like, or what we have. This is not an easy thing to do. Insecurity and want are inevitably human characteristics. But if we ever want to feel complete we must start where we are, and be grateful for that space.
However, the reversed 10 of Cups does show us how truly beautiful life can be when we seek something better. The face of our landscape does change; that view is attainable if we put the car in drive. If you come from a place of humility, realizing the name of what you want, saying it out loud can be freeing. You were meant to say those sweet syllables. You were meant to bring out that song.
The reversed 10 of Cups is a very human card. The colors flow in and out, pouring only to be refilled. This what the emotional barometer is. For this week, seek gratitude first. From there, fill your chalice with an elixir made of spectrum. If you can only see the trees, you will miss the Holy Forest. You will not know the magic that comes as quickly as a Colorado storm, the dark clouds leaving as quickly as they bloomed.

as usual, wise and beautiful. Dancing the polarity of emptying and filling your cup back up. Blessings sister. <3
Yes, dancing is a beautiful metaphor for this energy. <3 you star sister.
This is fabulous! So much truth in these words yet a very hard concept for me. Love you!
It can definitely be hard to find balance. But the good thing is that if each day we focus on gratitude, we inevitably get more. <3
