Today was a very weird day for me. I wasn’t sure why, I just knew 1/2 way through the day I was feeling off. I was exhausted mentally and physically.
Instead of being able to get things done, I allowed myself to just rest and zone out.
Thinking it would help me sort things out, I decided to create a spread to explore. I think I already knew what the deal was, but wasn’t clear on how to handle it.
I chose the Black and Gold Lenormand and Tazama African Tarot for this reading.

1. What is snuffing out my fire/energy? Clouds
Clouds in the sky can shapeshift and they can block out the sun.
When the mind is cloudy, you aren’t thinking clearly or trusting in what you see. This card can also mean ‘Denial’ this is what really hit me.
It can also stand for truth that you aren’t willing to acknowledge or act on. HELLO!! Whew, what a word.
2. What lesson is there to learn from this? III of Swords
I love that there are clouds here in this card and in the X of Swords too. The lesson here is to acknowledge the wound, make peace wi the situation, and allow healing/moving on to begin. The more you focus on the past, what changed, or what was lost the more you tether yourself to it. Limiting your own heart and mind, instead of taking what you can from the experience and moving forward.
3. What will support me in relighting my fire? X of Swords
Letting it go. This is the end, allow it to be. Stop fighting the inevitable. The storm is over now you can pick up and move on. The more you hold on, the stronger the perceived storm becomes.
4. Something to keep the energy flowing: The Hierophant
Trust in yourself and the wisdom you have. The Hierophant is all about knowledge and wisdom. All too often, you can disregard what you know to be true. This is time for you to be the guru for yourself. Adhere to your vision, beliefs, and mission. Look up to yourself and trust yourself deeply and fully.
Now is also the time to lean into your rituals and spiritual practices to help nurture and maintain your energy levels. Let today set the barometer for how to course correct. You have the knowledge and the tools, use them wisely.
5. Message for self care and/or support: Ace of Swords
Mindset Reset. It’s imperative to clear out any beliefs or limitations that make you feel stuck or stagnant. Meditation, journaling, and prayer are always good. Challenge your thoughts, follow through on your ideas and make self care a priority.
