My new babies 😭😍💚
I got my very first tattoo yesterday!! I got the moon behind my ear because, and I know this is gonna sound corny, I want the moon to share her secrets with me. I’m planning on getting the Sun behind my other ear as well!
I’ve been inactive here but I really quickly wanted to share this spread! First of all, I love the game of thrones deck. I feel like some of the darker imagery really delivers with the cards. I feel like Arya being depicted as Death is fitting due to the fact that she had to change and adopt throughout the series in order to survive, which is pretty much what Death is! Change, whether it is welcome or not, and how we adapt to it.
A personal favorite combination of mine. It tells a story of such growth, and possibilities for healing. It tells the tale of emotional, spiritual, and psychic knowledge being obtained after you walk away from situations that no longer serve you. Situations that do nothing but harm you, keep you stagnant, and keep you from morphing into who you are need to be left behind at this time. Who you are and who you want to be unfortunately don’t align at this time, so it’s time to shed your perception of self, abandon everything you know you don’t need, and start fresh. Take only what you need from where you are right now: knowledge, truth, and understanding. Leave everything else behind and allow yourself to grow without fear or hesitation. Allow yourself to overcome adversities and just be who you are meant to be. It’s happening now, ready or not, so just succumb to the divine presence in your life. Don’t be afraid, you’re changing into the best version of yourself right now.
I am growing and moving all energy that no longer serves me out of my life, and I have been for a whole year. This time in 2017 was nothing but sorrow, dread, and being lost. I had been lost for a very, very long time. I feared it was my destiny to always be that way, wandering around searching for chunks of myself in others who couldn’t find the missing pieces of themselves. Finding solace in the silence of abandonment, peace in heartbreak. I was The Tower, destined to burn slowly and do my best to rebuild quickly, only to burn again. Always the Phoenix. Living and dying in the company of those who loved themselves more than they did me, who threw me a match to watch me burn because they were feeling cold. It came to a roaring stop and I lost everything, it seemed, but did you really lose everything if you are blessed enough to find yourself in the chaos? Your strength, your perseverance, your will to Be? I don’t think of it as a loss anymore, and I don’t mourn anymore, because everything died last December but I lived. For once, I lived, and I learned, and I grew. By no means am I perfect now, and I still have trauma I am dealing with, but I am blessed to have a wonderful partner who loves and supports me, great friends who would walk through Hell for me (and I would for them, too.) I’m blessed because I have realized that fire isn’t the only form of purification and healing for me, not anymore. I am a waterfall. Pure, always moving, always growing.
