Are you going through a “nesting” phase? Spring cleaning early? Are you feeling lighter? Or are you feeling paranoid? Pay attention to the reversed meaning for this card.
Four of Earth:
Having special toys and other possessions is part of the pleasure of being a cat, and we all have collections of favorite items we like to keep just for ourselves. But some cats take this to extremes. This cat has lost all sense of proportion when it comes to material goods. He’s forgotten how to enjoy his toys, and his obsession with acquiring more has become his sole focus in life. Alone and suspicious, he guards his dusty hoard.
The Cat’s Advice:
All the toys in the world are worthless if you forget to play with them. What is at the root of your need for material possessions? There is some emptiness that needs to be filled, but collecting things won’t fill it. Seek solace in companionship and simple pleasures.
If the Card is reversed:
You are feeling (or will soon feel) a lightening of your spirit as emotional and physical clutter is released. Continue clearing away all the things you’ve been clinging to that no longer serve you, including ideas and relationships. What is truly valuable will remain.
You’ve been wanting to de-clutter for some time now, haven’t you? If you have not already done so… get started! It will be well worth it! You say you don’t know where to begin? Well, look down in front of you and just start there. The rest will sort itself out as time goes on.
Until next time…
