I may not have control of anything, but I do have the power to frame situations in a way that helps me get through life in one piece.
A few weeks ago, I had a conversation with a friend about tarot readings. She asked if I believed in tarot readings because I had been so receptive to my experience a few months ago. I wasn’t sure how to answer that question since I hadn’t framed tarot and astrology in that way.
Tarot and astrology readings are less about what the cards and signs say, and more of how each person interprets it and reacts to it. For me, astrology is a source of information, an insight into parts of my life that I had not considered. It takes me outside my own head and helps me see new ideas and opportunities. At the end of the day, it’s still up to me to make decisions for myself and determine what to do. Right now, I am also using astrology as a tool to get me motivated and excited about the day.
Astrology is not for everyone because it can reveal parts of our lives that are not so pleasant to confront. We have to be ready to accept all the ugly truths, as well as the beautiful flaws. When we do, we have the opportunity to have a deeper understanding of ourselves and shape our worlds with more meaning.
In short, I would say that I do believe in tarot, astrology, horoscopes, and all the other woo-woo stuff. I would also say that I “believe” in affirmations, life coaching, therapy, monetary rewards, fame, recognition, and anything else that could help motivate me. Do I really think that I will, “succeed in auditions, exams, first dates, and all other situations that put you to the test” today? Not really, but if I want be productive today, there’s no harm in telling myself that I’ll have excellent results.
