Hello, my friends, it is Deco back again. This time for a reading for the week of December 24th through December 30th. We are so close to this portal that is the New Year, we have so much to look forward to and so much excitement. But, in the meantime, I feel like there’s unfinished business that we might need to address as we’re winding down this year, so let’s think about like what do we, what doors do we need to close, what do we need to be thinking about to really make sure that we move forward the best way that we can, all right?
Let’s see what we need to know. Ooh all right my friends, wow, okay. So right away, there are big issues in relationships here. Okay, friendships, romantic relationships, there might even be some relationships at a job, I don’t know exactly what’s going on but, this Two and Three of Cups both being in reverse, I can tell that there are struggles, I can tell that there are hurts and I can tell that there are things that have been going on for a really long time that maybe you’ve been struggling to address and let’s talk about that because this Devil is here. And, The Devil is an interesting card because it’s suggesting that there are things that we need to address, but that we are maybe struggling to address because we’ve fallen into a pattern, we’ve fallen into a cycle or habit or whatever it is for us that we’re really struggling to release. And, what it might be is letting go of these people that haven’t been treating you well. You know, you might need to start a addressing those relationships that don’t feel good for you, the ones where instead of unconditional love you do one thing wrong and suddenly they don’t want to talk to you for a week or a month or a year or however long and those kind of relationships are not true relationships those are selfish, one-sided, inconsiderate relationships that you need to start addressing so that you don’t have people taking advantage of you or anything like that right it’s like you’re allowing this cycle to continue and I know that it’s not easy to say goodbye to relationships that you’ve had for a really long time, but it is important to let people know how you expect to be treated.
I feel like I’m a broken record with the readings I’ve been doing lately because I feel like there are people in your life that you might need to let go and that’s so much easier said than done, my friends. It is so easy to say I’m just going to cut them out of my life when really you’ve invested in those relationships, right? You have taken the time to get to know these people to allow them to get to know you, to try to feel love from them, to try to give love to them. And so, when we get to a a state where we finally realize, “You know what, this relationship doesn’t make me feel good anymore, this relationship isn’t what I thought it was going to be,” that’s when we need to start being real with ourselves and saying, “You know what, maybe this person just has me tied around their finger and they’ve just been stringing me along this whole time,” when really you are worth so much more than just being someone’s little puppy dog, right? You are here to lead the way of your own life and not allow someone to manipulate you to feel a certain way. There are so many circumstances that you just need to step up for yourself.
For right now, let’s pull some more cards and think like, “How do we do this, what do we need to know to continue to move forward and have this positivity and get rid of this cycle that we’re in with these really negative relationships?” Okay so, here’s what I’m seeing, this is interesting, I pulled some cards and I’m looking at the bottom of my deck over here, so what I’m seeing first of all, is this Four of Wands in reverse, so if the Four of Wands was upright I’d be like you know what maybe you need to mend but this is saying it’s time to move out, it’s time to do something different and step away from what has been your comfort zone for so long and to realize that staying in the space that you’re in is just going to make it feel like things aren’t lightening up a little bit, right?
The Star should mean that you’ve got lightness on the horizon, you can see the light at the end of the tunnel after all of this craziness, out of all of of this negativity, but there’s a risk here if we don’t start stepping up for ourselves that we’re going to just kind of stay in this darkness, right? And, I think it’s worth it to step out of this comfort zone, to start walking out and stepping out and meeting new people and making new connections and really finding people that, excuse me, that you vibe with and that you love that have the same passions as you and that want to invest in things the same way you want to invest in.
Like this King of Wands is suggesting that you might want to do. This is the time to step out and do things that you want to do and make connections with people that want to do things that you want to do that have the same interests that you have, the same passions, that want to see you succeed in those things, right? Instead of trying to take your successes and make it about them somehow, right?
And here’s where I know this is worth it, the Eight of Pentacles is suggesting that hard work will pay off, right? That you will become the ultimate person who knows exactly what you deserve and have this expectation for yourself about how you expect to be treated how you expect, how you expect relationships to go, what kind of reciprocity you’re looking for in your relationships, as in like, what are you doing, what are they doing and how do those things go together, right? So yeah, it might feel a little bit painful to think, “You know what, I need to close some doors on these relationships.” Because the thing about closing those doors is it opens opportunities for new connections, new relationships, people that make you feel good about yourself and keeping yourself to that standard, keeping yourself to knowing what you expect in those relationships and that you will not settle for anything, but people that make you feel good in life and support you in your endeavors and want you to feel loved and accepted and all of those things. That’s when you’re going to start to feel better about your circumstance, about yourself, about your relationships. But, you have to set the standard. You have to know what it is that you’re looking for. And again, that’s so much easier said than done. But, you know what feels good and you know what doesn’t. And so, identifying those things for people in your life will show you who’s worth holding on to. Because, I’m not saying that every single person needs to be cut out of your life, but there are definitely some people that you’ve maybe been holding on to just because they’ve been there forever, even if they don’t feel like you’re tied to them. You know, I don’t know, I think it’s really important here to set your standards high and to know what you’re looking for in a friendship, in a partner, in a work partner, whatever that is for you.
So step up for yourself, my friends, go for your goals and the people that support you along the way as you’re stepping into this chapter that is like truly yours, those are the people that you hold on to, those other people they need to be cut out they’re not worth having around, right? Hanging on to all of those things, these people are just going to cause more strife in your life. And, those relationships that don’t feel good you don’t need them, my friends. So step up for yourself, keep those standards high. You know what you deserve and it’s just going to take persistence and consistency. You’ve got this. Best of luck. It’s almost time for this fresh start, so allow this time to be the time where you start closing some doors so that more doors can open for you, all right? Best of luck.
