Theme: Surrender

How this might show up generally: Making a big decision based on your feelings, following your bliss, leaving something broken behind

This card signals a time of profound emotions, feelings that are overwhelming. This card often comes up when you are tempted to cut and run away from the situation, as if to get some relief from the depth of feeling. But bailing or ghosting is not the solution. There may not be an obvious “fix” to stem the tide of emotion, instead the lesson is to honor what you are feeling. Stuffing it down or running from it won’t make it go away. Don’t be afraid of your depths, start the new year by facing yourself. Let go of what your intellect says you should do – your heart is trying to tell you the essence of what you need. Embrace that, and you’ll know how to move through this.
