August Soul Reading, Part Two: Over-Investment


Nine of Pentacles Reversed

August Soul Reading: Part Two of Five

Nine of Pentacles Reversed from the Golden Tarot of Klimt.

We continue this week to look at why we have delays in life and how to make the most of them.

Issue #1: You’ve put too many eggs into one basket or have over focused on one area. We get so excited about ideas or projects that we can become single minded in our efforts. We pump all of energy in one part of our life, completely ignoring other important areas. This over investment can disrupt the energy and the flow in other areas in your life, leaving them lacking and wilting like an unwatered flower.

Fix: It’s time to look into those neglected areas and see where you can breathe life back into them. Think of the current suspension/block as the universe creating the space for you which will allow you to create balance in your life.

Action Steps: Determine all the areas of your life that are currently in play: well-being, spiritual self, career, relationship, however you want to categorize them. Then graph out or make a list of where most of your current energy is going. Is it balanced in all areas or is one area much heavier than the rest?

Determine the area that has the least amount going to it right now and send it a little love. For example, If your passion is running, but you haven’t been able to do so recently, then go on one short run this week just to get back into it. If you have avoided taking that class that would enhance your career path, sign up for it.

Next, make a list of the people who are most important to you. Have you been sending loving energy to them or has it all been going towards one focus? Even if you don’t feel like you have the time to reach out, you can still connect. Take a few moments to visualize those people. Sending warm, loving light to each of them, watching it wrap around them like a giant embrace. Send positive thoughts and healing energy, letting them know you are thinking about them.

By shifting the energy around in your life, you start the flow moving again, allowing you to move forward again. This week remind yourself that life pauses, delays, and suspensions are sometimes Spirit’s way of creating space for us to heal ourselves.
