MAIN ISSUE – THIS IS YOU
The word of the day is improvement as you find yourself wanting to hone your skills to become a master at what you do. You may have changed your circumstances and are now studying something to improve your situation or even going back to school to become qualified in something that will lead to a better way of life. If you haven’t made any changes recently, then you have drawn this card to encourage you to think on what will improve your life on a personal or professional level. Keep toiling away and working at your chosen project or skill because it really will lead to a lot of success in the long run. It is going to take a lot dedication but wow, will it be worth it in the long run!
THIS HINDERS YOU/REVERSE
You may be working on the ‘inner you’ at the moment and wanting to improve your outlook on life. Perhaps you are working through exercises for mindfulness, meditation or doing things that improve your mental health or wellbeing. Go easy on yourself however, try not to push yourself too hard where it all becomes a bit of a chore. Try not to aim for perfection or beat yourself up if you have a down day. It’s all about healthy balance and slowly working towards a better and stronger you. Alternatively you could be working on a project that really isn’t going anywhere fast. Have you got the right skill set and mastery for this project? Do you need to be a bit more patient as it grows? Take a step back and see if anything needs readjusting or even think about changing your goals if it is a continuing struggle.
GOALS AND IDEALS
You have decided to enhance the skills that you already have or have taken an entirely different path on learning something new through studying. Well done you! This decision has been made on wanting to improve your life or your wellbeing. You know that it will take a lot of dedication but you really do want to put the work in so that you can be the master of one certain thing rather than a jack of all trades. You are aiming for an abundant outcome if you keep your head down and hone your skills. If you have already started this new personal or professional project then keep going as your goals really are in sight as you have been working so hard to get there. Going in to new territory can be daunting, but trust yourself, you have got this!
Sometimes in life we feel a bit flat and feel that we really aren’t going anywhere in our current position. You keep getting thoughts of wanting to improve your life or have already started to think up a plan to learn something new or improve your skills in a work or personal environment. This is your inner voice telling you to move forward and start to study this certain something that you have always wanted to do, but for some reason life got in the way. You may even want to improve on a skill that will reap better results in the long run. Listen to these nagging thoughts as they are giving you the drive to improve your life circumstances and be the best version of yourself that you can be.
In the past you started a course, project or took on study to improve your life and wellbeing. You may have given up and not pursued this project. If you did now is the time to take up the reins and continue this as it really will serve you greatly in the future. If you didn’t give up and are still soldiering on, keep going! You may or may not have attained the desired outcome. If you haven’t, you have drawn this card to encourage you to keep focused and continue with your study or dedication on whatever project it may be as it really will reap the rewards that you have been hoping for.
YOUR NEAR FUTURE
Oh you are nearly there so keep going! You have taken up study or have decided to hone your skills to enhance your abilities and are going to be reaping the benefits of all your hard work. Your dedication will soon be paying off so give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done! It has been a bit of a slog but wow, will it be worth it in the end. If you haven’t taken up anything new, then you will be entering into a phase where you will want to work on self-improvement either for a personal need or a professional goal. When the opportunity comes or when you feel it’s just right, start that new course or class as it will result in success. If you already have a certain set of skills, work hard on honing them. The results will be fantastic!
You know that perhaps you could perfect a craft or skill that is in your itinerary. The thing is that to improve your life situation it is going to take a lot of work and a diligent mind set. Whether this is learning how to perfect your current skills for better work opportunities or even studying something new, you know that you are perfectly capable of taking this on in order to improve your life as well as make for a healthier bank balance. You may even be feeling a little low and know that some changes need to be made for a happier you. Think about learning a new way of life whether it be a more spiritual one or learning how to practice mindfulness. A healthier, happier you will encourage growth and opportunity that will create new blooms in your wilting circumstances.
WHAT/WHO INFLUENCES YOUR SITUATION
Certain things around you at the moment seem to be pushing you to make improvements. This could either be in a work environment where you need to hone your skills or for you to take up study to get that promotion or to help drive your business forward. It just seems that polishing up skills that you already possess or taking yourself into new territory keep showing themselves through synchronicity or opportunity. You could even be feeling that certain things around you aren’t making you the happiest that you could be. Think about learning new life skills such as meditation and mindfulness or even a spiritual course that will help you experience a lot more happiness and inner peace. This in turn will give you the strength to make any changes in your life that will result in a far more contented and stronger you.
HOPES AND FEARS
You may have decided to take up a course or study something in order to improve your life. It could even be a personal goal where you will need to put some work in. You may even want to hone the skills that you already have. Either way you hope that whatever you are going to take on it will lead to a lot more abundance and a happier state of mind. By dedicating a lot of time and effort in your chosen field you hope that it will reap rewards both financially and personally. You do however have times when you doubt your abilities or even doubt that what you are engaging in is going to bring the results that you so want to achieve. Yes, it can be scary learning something new or putting hard work in if you fear the end result but we do not get anywhere by fearing the outcome and not putting our energy into it. So go for it, what’s the worst that can happen?
All of the hard work that you have put into study, your career or personal wellbeing is about to pay off, so keep going. It may have been months or even years that you have been toiling away to get a desired outcome of a wealthier or healthier you. The fact is that your dedication and hard graft despite any ups and downs is leading you to a fantastic outcome. If you are not seeing the results just yet, rest assured they are closer than you think. Keep focused, keep on your path, as you will get out what you have so diligently put in. It has been a lot of blood, sweat and tears, but trust the Universe, this is so going to be worth it!
