My friend and I met on New Year’s Day at the beautiful Dushanbe Tea House in a nearby suburb. It’s the second time in a row we’ve met there on this day, making it our brand new New Year’s tradition.
The food is delicious and just a bit exotic. The architecture and aesthetics are gorgeous.
Over tea and brunch, we covered the important areas of our lives, getting up to speed with each other on all that has transpired since we were last together. Just before we were to part, my friend remembered she’d brought a Tarot deck. She’s been toying around, learning the cards. She pulled a bundle out of her bag and invited me to pick a card from her deck for a quick reading.
I got Chariot Reversed (shown upright here for easier viewing).
- From Biddy Tarot: Be open to spontaneity and new experiences, even if it is not aligned to your original plan.
- From Crystal Clear Reflections: Your approach of will-power has proven unsuccessful…Seek another approach to your difficulties – will power alone cannot always sustain you. Learn to give way to the spirit within you.
What — me? Control freak? Bwahahaha. Universe, you know me so well. In the dance between making things happen and letting things happen, I’m getting the message that in 2016 I may want to focus more on the latter.
How did you ring in the new year?
