Here is today’s card… pay attention to the meaning for a reversed card as this came to us reversed.
On her first visit to the shore, the Sea Kitten is enchanted by the rippling wavelets and merrily chases them as they flow back toward the depths. She is unprepared for what happens next — the wavelets are chasing her! The kitten is surprised by the power and immensity of the ocean, but she will learn quickly.
The Cat’s Advice:
The waters of emotion swirl around you, and — just as the kitten learns about the waves — you are learning to handle them. Your feelings are close to the surface, both good and bad. Be compassionate with yourself. As we mature and grow wiser, the depths and tides are less scary, and we willingly take the plunge.
If the card is reversed:
Your emotions are overpowering, threatening to overtake you unless you learn to manage them. Don’t act immaturely now or give way to melodramatic impulses. If you have experiences in your past that were traumatic, it may be time to release them and find emotional healing.
Take a step back, look, look again. Is there something that you need to release? Like the cards say, it just may be time. Things will be different if and when you let go. Not necessarily easier at the beginning because letting go of anything is a hard thing to do even if you really want to do it. However it will get easier over time, the grieving process isn’t only for a death, it is for any loss. Just be careful with how you go about it.
Until next time…
