Spread for Today - Help!!

And here are the cards I drew this morning.. I am at a loss on this one, and hopeful that someone else will give it a try for me.

Positions = Energies, Challenges, Gift..

4 of Pentacles = financial security, being too focused or miserly with your cash...
3 of Swords = heartbreak, pain, ending a cycle of struggle
Devil = obsession, addiction, bondage, trapped in a lousy situation, or perhaps release from the aforementioned???

Maybe by tonight it will make more sense to me..

I am a bit irritable this a.m. and instead of being creative, my energies are being used to babysit so I do feel trapped. hmm.....

interestingly, I never use my tarot deck to do a three card spread. so I am not familiar really with the order they are supposed to be in. I really like using the 5-card pentagram spread in the LWB, it works really well to answer questions directly etc.

Ironically, I looked at these three cards in reverse order and noticed that in all three cards, your challenge (because you are, after all, the heroine in your own story) is that you must overcome your inclination to go in negative trends, regardless of whether the actual physical conditions are positive or negative. The Devil is, among other things, working against, and not listening to, your own better sense, your instincts; the 3 of Swords has a lot of emotional pain, but the girl is drowning in painful memories rather than in reality; and in the 4 of Pentacles, the fear of not having enough money to make ends meet is a fear that is not real, since the shopping cart is plenty full enough and somehow there will be enough to pay for it, whether thru coupons, food stamps, or just having the cash =)

so before you get too deeply into the details of each card in each position or anything like that, I'd delve more into what seems to be a propensity to look at the glass of water as half empty =/

Just remember.....

to the Optimist, the glass is half full.
to the Pessimist, the glass is half empty.
to an ENGINEER, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be =)

Absolutely.. you hit the nail on the head Gina. Most of the day I was literally fighting to save myself from drowning in negativity. I certainly "learned at my mother's knee" to think in negative terms and nothing I did yesterday seemed to alter my glass half empty feeling.

Haven't done a spread for today yet, but at least my head feels properly screwed on. My research points to at least a year of struggling with withdrawals, and yesterday was one of those days.. and I was taking care of Anah, so didn't have any time to myself for meditation or other methods of fixing my funky attitude.

Thanks for the comments midear :)

nails on the head, head screwed on...... I hear construction noises in the background when I think, how about you?

sawing, etc......

identification of the mood is usually the first step in overcoming it. like, the minute you realize you're being negative, it starts changing usually..... =)

The work is endless and sometimes it piles up pretty deep LOL..

always a work in progress...

crazy thing, those hammers and saws keep you up late at night and wake you up at all hours of the morning, too.

you'd think those construction workers would lay off for more than a few hours at a time!
