about not writing

The Shadow Truth spread provides insight into your attitudes and hidden feelings. This spread is used when you are having trouble confronting something, or fear that you are concealing something from yourself.

The card in the center represents the attitude you assume. Eight of Staves (Swiftness), when reversed: Bewilderment. Awe. Temporary immobility.

The card to the right represents the thoughts and feelings that underly your attitudes. Nine of Swords (Cruelty): Revenge. Excessive or violent response to a problem. Jealousy.

The card at the top represents how your attitude is evolving and will evolve in the future. Page of Coins, when reversed: An unrealistic deluded state of mind. Rationalizations. Pseudoscience.

The card to the left represents how others perceive your attitude. Ten of Cups (Satiety), when reversed: Emotional turbulence. Unrequited love. Family disagreements.

The card at the bottom represents what you cannot confront or are hiding from yourself. The World, when reversed: World out of balance. Incompleteness, Vain striving, Gracelessness.

Your strength seems to make some people uncomfortable. I don't want that to become a problem for you. Maybe you could get away with toning down your potency at other times, but not now. It would be sinful to act as if you're not as competent and committed to excellence as you are. But having said that, I also urge you to monitor your behavior for excess pride. Some of the resistance you face when you express your true glory may be due to the shadows cast by your true glory. You could be tempted to believe that your honorable intentions excuse secretive manipulations. So please work on wielding your clout with maximum compassion and responsibility.
