I see a continuation here of yesterday's reading. This time, the Two of Pentacles actually does show a mirror. And this time, the reflection seen in the mirror matches the person standing before it. This shows progress!
The Death card has been coming up a bit for me in readings for myself lately. Just last night it came up in a reading I did with the Archeon Tarot. I like the bizarre Death card in this deck. I like how the shadow of the figures appears in the shape of a scythe. I see in this card a woman shedding her past life and who she formerly identified herself as. This can be a difficult change to go through. It's interesting to me that of the two figures in the card, it's the skeleton who is carrying the person. It's the one who has already gone through this process of death who has the strength to carry the other. This tells me that although this change I want to see in my life might be an uncomfortable process, it will leave me stronger for it in the end.
The girl in the Three of Swords is stabbing herself in the chest, drawing blood. This clearly says to me that any pain I am experiencing is completely self-inflicted. Any discomfort in my life is my own doing. I am the only one responsible for the happiness in my life.
It looks like all this self-reflection (2 Pents) I have been doing lately is revealing painful truths (3 Swords), but it will bring about a shedding of a life that I have outgrown (Death). I am coming to an end of sorts, and I can feel that this will ultimately be a good thing for me. Growing pains in my 30's. Who woulda thought?
