Iris X Reading of Week / Week beginning on 11/6/23:

As we move into the darker time of the year, I thought I would bring out the Da Brigh Black Tarot for a reading. I shuffled the cards, and asked for a reading for someone who will see this post. I never know who these readings will be for until they are posted. Sometimes, the reading is for multiple people. Other times- just one. The person that this reading is for has been going through a challenging time. Read on and see if this is speaking to you.

The reading begins with the Five of Swords. You are dealing with a person or a situation that you have to walk away from for your safety and emotional well being. You are being drained of your energy and life force by a person who is focused only on themselves and their own needs. There are times when you have to cut a tie with a person and walk away. You have connections to this person, and it will not be easy.

The Seven of Wands comes up next, showing you as overwhelmed. You feel like you have fires around you that you have to put out. You are stretched very thin right now, and every time you finish a task, another one pops up. You are exhausted by this, and it is starting to take a serious toll on you. You feel like all you do is fight.

The Eight of Swords comes up next. Are you trapped or do you just think you are? You are wrapped up in your own thoughts, and stuck in a situation that is causing you harm. You can't stay where you are. It is not safe for you. Everything is very clear right now- you can see things as they are. You feel like there are ties that prevent you from leaving where you are. But it is not clear if you are truly trapped- or if you have been convinced that you are.

The key to this reading is The Emperor. Prior to this card, every card shows someone else that is in charge of what is happening in your life. This is not the case. As The Emperor, it is time to get back into the driver's seat in your life. You are being controlled by other people. You have a view of the life that you would like to have in the future, and you are capable of creating this life without the help of anyone. Your key is to push back. You are in charge.

Here's what I see. If this is your reading, you have a relationship with someone that has become difficult and energy draining. The person may not be able to see the impact that they are having on you. They can only see the world from their own eyes. In the meantime, you have a lot coming at you right now. You feel like you can't rest- it's just one thing after another. You feel like you can't get out of a situation that you are in- even if it's causing you harm. The key is to STOP. It seems that someone has taken charge of your life- and no one can do that but you. Take control back of your life. You have all of the power that you need to build the future that you are trying to build. Don't let anyone convince you that your power is with them. You are strong and in charge right now. You know what you want to do with your life. You have all of the power- and it's time to cut the tie with the person who has been trying to take that away from you.
