Three of Diamonds: You, the fabulous Siren, have given away too much of yourself & you got very little in return. As a consequence your sovereignty has become subservient to your relationship; indeed, your majesty has been imprisoned by it (Crown inside Ring). However, the domineering Jack-in-the-Green, who was keeping you fascinated & bound, is moving away & looking hollow. It is safe to say his rule is over & it is good to see the Siren move away in the opposite direction.
Many great gifts are now coming your way, in fact you will be showered with them (Golden Hand)! Moreover, as the Siren lies on the middle Diamond & we can also so her as falling from the Hand, you are now free to recognise what a gift you are. Enjoy!
You may have noticed that I haven’t blogged in quite a while. Not for lack of ideas (I have an ever-growing list) or just because I’ve been busy. It’s true I’ve been working hard, and I have needed my spare time mainly for recuperation. However, the real reason that I haven’t been feeling up to writing or anything creative really is that I have been dealing with the aftermath of the relationship that I have ended last November.
I have only recently been brave enough to admit to myself that this relationship had some very negative, even abusive aspects to it & that I will need to put in some time & effort to heal myself. I need some rest, and let myself be healed by the spirits & the people they send my way.
I have to say that the spirits are rallying round magnificently, which is a great comfort to me. And before you get all concerned, many changes for the better have already happened & more are on the way. A whole rebirth is in the works & yes, that hurts at times!
My former partner didn’t do birthdays, at least not mine. So in eight years he never gave me a birthday present either, nor any present for that matter. True, he didn’t have much. True, he gave me plenty of non-material gifts & I’m grateful.
But as I am completely happy with a second-hand book, a teacup from the charity shop, or some flowers, it was plain that he just didn’t want to bother. When I tried to explain how much I felt hurt by this he just shrugged.
It is not lost on me, especially with the charm cast above, that the present thing was symbolic for our whole relationship. Which is why I tried to just accept it, because I was not ready to look critically at the rest of the relationship. It’s also why it made me so sad, for of course deep down I knew.
Also a factor is that in my family birthdays really are a Thing. From kids to adults, wish lists are emailed around, cakes baked, and the party pig made much of. I always LOVED my birthday. It was the one day in the year that was entirely MINE. In a big family this is no small thing, especially for an Aries child! At present I am not on the easiest of terms with most of my family, for various reasons. Therefore my birthday is an emotional day for me, the one day I miss having my family around me most.
So over the years my birthday has become a painful, not a joyful occasion. Which hasn’t exactly improved by my ex’s attitude.
And I’m saying, screw that.
For the greatest thing about presents is not the receiving. It is seeing the joy of the giver in giving it, in seeing you happy because of it. It is an exchange on several levels. I myself LOVE giving presents, even more than getting them (well, almost).
And so, to make my upcoming birthday a day of rebirth, a day of joy, I am going to give away lots of presents the whole month of April! I will host a giveaway for my Facebook page & Instagram followers every week of April. I’ll also have an exclusive flash sale for my newsletter subscribers on my birthday itself, April 14th. So if you aren’t a subscriber or follower already, hop over & like or follow & whatnot. You can subscribe to my newsletter in the sidebar next to this article.
Let’s get the party started!
In other news: I’m working on some changes to my website, shop & blog. You may expect GREAT THINGS. It’s going to be even better folks! I’ll keep you posted.
