Today’s cards continue a theme that’s appeared for the past two days.

The Four of Cups is a card much like the Hanged Man but with a few distinctions. There is a focus on emotion, as in disappointment or fear of rejection or failure, that may be holding us back from new beginnings. The timing may be right to move forward, but we lack the drive to do so. There is am implication that this apathy is a result of past experiences that have worn us out and taken the spark of adventure away. It is not merely circumstances stopping our movement; we are keeping ourselves at bay for some reason.

We also see another card today for positive manifestation energy. As I wrote yesterday, manifestation is about more than wishful thinking. But it does require focus and belief in ourselves and our self worth.

It’s OK to not know where you are going or what you want. Apathy is not necessarily a bad thing if what you need is space to process your feelings or are waiting for creative inspiration to strike. Perhaps this is a time of deep self-reflection.

The challenge is to not get stuck wallowing in self-pity, negative self-talk, jealousy or fantasies of revenge. Bad things happen, and sometimes we may even be responsible for those things. But we have the power to determine our personal narrative about the past. It might take time to recover from a fall, but remember that manifestation begins when you make up your mind to do it. If you want to learn to ride, you have to get back on the horse.

Don’t let disappointment hold you back from wishing on a star. Don’t assume you know everything about how magic may appear. 🌟
