Tarot Sentence:

Upright: Prudence learns with profundity.

☆ Special Guidance:

Mundane: You will attain that which you are seeking.

Esoteric: You’ve reached a point in your evolution where you should know that you don’t have to have all the answers, or know the future in advance, in order to ward off failure. Reservations and distrustful thoughts are barriers that stand between you and the Source, and they must be worn down and eliminated.

Best Course of Action: Don’t strive to overcome a situation or force a resolution. Take a modest or reticent approach with dignity and unassuming grace.

Outcome: You will accomplish most of your goals and emerge into a new plateau of potentiality, yet you will know that this is only the first step of your unfoldment and there’s much more to be achieved.

I look within for the guidance of my higher self to elevate my moods and direct me to the light.

I am introspection, the beginning of a solitary journey to explore unknown neglected parts of self.

I am engaged in a search for meaning and purpose in life and daily activity.

I have the courage to journey along unfamiliar paths to discover my inner voice and vision.

I reorganize my life to free myself from distractions and create space for inward reflection.

I draw upon my enlightened experience to help others with their search for meaning.
