This week's cards, once again from the Tarot of the Sidhe, are:
This week starts out with a sense of peacefulness and feeling like you're on track and heading in the right direction, but there's something about the way others are trying to hold you up to a particularly high set of standards that might be making you feel a bit uncomfortable. While you're feeling the joy of accomplishment and you're happy to be recognized by your peers and co-workers for doing a job well done and there are some feelings of almost being forced into a place of higher standing than where you're necessarily comfortable, especially right now.
By midweek you may be feeling like you're wearing a mask, one that you didn't put on yourself and not one that you asked the wear. You may find yourself coming to a point where you're ready to crack, so to speak, and where you've ready to say "this isn't what I wanted and this isn't who I am". If you decided to make this move and stand up for yourself and what you truly want, you may find that the loving support you had earlier doesn't stick around for too long. Like anything else this feeling of things crashing around you is for the best. Rather than feeling like a devastating event this may feel a bit liberating and as though you can be free to be yourself.
And then we again see the message of Warrior Two. When we saw Warrior Two at the end of last week his message was about looking for where balance needed to be restored. This week his message is again of balance but mostly about the balance within your own sense of self and your own sense of power. Did you make the mistake of unknowingly giving power to those around you who pushed you into this place that you found yourself in early this week? Did you feel afraid of claiming your power and in turn gave it up? If you want to make sure that nobody puts you in this sort of position again, if you want to keep others from trying to turn you into something you aren't or don't want to be, then you need to become comfortable in your power and be willing to use it. Warrior Two comes back this week in this position to try to these this lesson of power and balance once again. Next time he might send in one of his brothers with the bigger swords if you don't hear him this time.
