Ah, the mystery! (or what jumped out of your anxiety closet this morning?)

Today's cards: King of Cups, King of Swords, Four of Cups. Ah, the mystery! Today's big question is, what aren't you seeing that's right in front of your face? To me, the Four of Cups is about not seeing/sensing the obvious. It's right there plain as day but for some reason, it remains elusive. So, it looks like the trick today is to step back, and take stock and ask the questions you need to ask.

See, before you can move forward from that emotionally and mentally healthy place, you need the truth. And to misquote the great Jack Nicholson, you can totally handle the truth. Whatever it is, will be much easier for you to handle than the monsters you've built up in your head. Once you transform those unknowns into knowns, once you remove the veil from your eyes, the big, hulking terrifying monster of whatever anxiety jumped out of your own personal anxiety closet might just turn into a soft, mewling kitten who wants nothing more than to be cuddled, snoogled, and loved.

We're all just people. We all have fears. We all have desires. We all have issues. Because of that, we have some common bonds, and if we can remove all the social niceties and barriers to being real, then we can get to the heart of whatever it is that we all fear, hate, love, and want. Get to that place with your personal demons, and you've got 'em by the short hairs. Then, you can express your unique perspective and more than likely get what you want.

It's like that old trick they tell you about when you have to do public speaking. Imagine your audience naked. That evens the playing field. Well, underneath our clothes, we're all completely naked. Remember that, remember that you are equal to whomever and whatever you fear, and then your mental and emotional parts will rejoice because then they can do what they need to do.
