An initial success is looking a little bit shaky, Cancer, and you feel like holding back. Is this the road you want to go down right now?
Things started out well enough. You’re feeling triumphant right now. But there’s a niggling doubt. You’re worried that some kind of sacrifice must be made or that you’ll do damage to your reputation. But the sacrifice is nothing more than the commitment you must make to hold true to your values.
You’re skilled and competent. You can do this. But you’re worried about what people will think and say. And you’re worried about locking yourself into an impossibly taxing and challenging road ahead. Your friends, those you’ve confided in, see you as capably keeping things on track. It will get easier. But right now, you can’t predict the future. All you can do is move ahead into the uncertainty. You may be the talk of the town soon. But if you ensure that you remain committed to your personal values and principles, they’ll be saying good things about you, for sure.
Like all fictional narratives, the stories that emerge through tarot are not predictive. Instead, these stories offer new ways of seeing situations, alternative perspectives, and opportunities to remind oneself of the ups and downs we all must face in life.
