The Devil - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You can’t settle down and establish a good root system when you’re ignoring the details. Listen to your gut feelings, they’re trying to keep you out of harms way. Don’t settle for less than you deserve and don’t let your judgement become clouded by the negativity of others. Sometimes no news is good news. So don’t go looking for trouble. Especially when there’s none to be found. You could start something you can’t or don’t want to finish.


Additional Insight:

Be patient and allow the light to shine on your day to heal the old wounds. What’s hidden doesn’t always mean something is on its way to bite you in the behind. It could be hidden because it’s not ready to manifest into the present moment. You may not be ready right now for what’s coming.

Trust that Divine energy knows what’s best for you and relax.
