At first I thought this was an odd card for today, but as I got into the meanings of it and what it had in store for me, I can see why it’s appropriate.
Meanings: Retreat, isolation, a time for reflection, hurt feelings, deceptive calm, sacrifice, renunciation, watchfulness, ascesis, meditation, healing. To postpone decisions, to remain in unpleasant circumstances.
Message: “Pause for reflection in order to bring pending problems, inner conflicts, and differences of opinion to a good resolution.”
Analysis: As my retreat at the Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow comes to an end (I leave tomorrow but will be in town another week), I can no longer postpone any decisions I need to make about returning to Ada and working for Mom. Part of the decision has been made for me as I will no longer be doing transcription but will be “office help.” But what about retuning to the town itself, which I would honestly rather not do?
Pendulum Corroboration: Is this an appropriate and accurate card for me today? Yes.
