Daily Draw: 8 of Cups, Unn

Today’s draw is about having the guts to cut away and leave behind what is no longer good for you. This is not a happy-making draw, which is a bummer, but there you go. You’re dragging around your dead and you need to bury them and move on. And it’s not just you: there is a family history of doing what you’re doing, thinking you can fix it or change it or somehow make some good come out of it, or maybe you’ve been taught to think that it’s your place, your purpose in life to carry everybody else’s burdens and sorrows. What pained your mother must also pain you. What terrified your father must also terrify you. Fuck that. End it. You don’t need to be burdened by what burdened your ancestors. They had their own battles and you have yours. You may fight them in the same ways, but you can learn from their mistakes. In fact I’m pretty sure that in most cases they’d WANT you to learn from their mistakes. Let the Divine Breath blow through you and rattle away what’s dead like the north wind through the remaining leaves on a tree in late autumn. Cut it from you when you hear the rattling, and let it go with both hands. Walk forward. Move on. It’s time.
