It was only a few days ago, on April 1, that this card came up reversed. The message on that day included the warning to “consider your mindset and your approach to things. You could be thinking in terms of lack and scarcity rather than the possibility of having plenty of resources to support yourself. That mentality, while no doubt rooted in your present reality, is likely to lead to more of the same lack.” And here it seems that this may have come to pass. You may be overcome with depression and anxiety, feeling lost and alone, stuck in a negative thought pattern. Or you may be faced with a financial setback: a job loss, a failure of an investment, or a sudden expense that you can’t cover. If so, don’t panic. It’s bad news, but it’s temporary and you’ll find a solution. Try to look beyond the immediate crisis and see what’s possible in the future. The warm light shining through the stained-glass windows of the church sends the symbolic message that there is help, both spiritual and practical, available to you if you’ll only look, and ask, for it. This episode could be a blessing in disguise as it could lead to a change in your thinking, opening the door to greater security and peace of mind.
