A Tarot Reading To Cultivate Positivity
How Can We Train Our Minds To Be More Positive?
THE EMPEROR, REVERSED
Reversed, The Emperor symbolizes excessive control, lack of discipline and inflexibility. When we feel as though things are going awry, we tend to over compensate with excessive control or inflexibility. This card is here to remind us to channel the upright qualities in The Emperor: authority and structure.
Everything happens for a reason. Life has a way of giving you exactly what you need, not what you want.
Instead of being reactive to every outcome that doesn't go as planned, try your best to roll with the punches and embrace the life lessons you will experience along the way.
Pay attention to your commitment to your goals and your self-discipline to really cultivate positivity and happiness in your life. If you are struggling to see any real outcomes, check that you have a plan in place, a routine to support it, and the dedication to see it through. You may need to get a little tough on yourself and do the uncomfortable work you’d prefer to avoid, such as daily meditation, therapy, exercising and so forth. But if you can harness the positive, upright energy of the Emperor, your efforts are sure to lead you in the right direction.
How Do We Treat Our Bodies To Promote More Positivity?
TEN OF WANDS
Ten of Wands symbolizes burden, extra responsibility, hard work and completion. Our society promotes over-working as the new normal. Many of us may have multiple jobs to pay the bills and tend to take on too much responsibility in the office, friendships or at home.
This card is here to remind us that taking on unnecessary stress or responsibility can wear us down not only mentally, but also physically. You may try to do everything at once, even though you know it is adding extra pressure to your daily life. The Ten of Wands asks you to stop and examine your current lifestyle or work.
What can you let go of that no longer serves you?
Maybe it's time to put down a few wands so you can focus more energy towards cultivating a happier and healthier life.
