Five of Wands - Awakened

I haven't been able to get to my blog the past few days. I've been busy battling the dragon like Jason. It felt like the dragon was winning. This card describes exactly what I have being experiencing. But the dragon-fight is with myself. Fighting ourselves can be the worst kind of battle when " the powers of the earth resist change "

I have been experiencing  'regressive inertia'. It has been more than a rut, but a combination of things that have resulted in me avoiding, procrastinating, and resisting reality. All this has collided with my creative energy, but now it's come to an apex and I am ready to accommodate reality and my imagination.

The Feminine energy of the High Priestess helped Jason and I must trust my intuition and my instincts and allow them to help me do the right thing, so I can grow and achieve my goals.

I have heard it said, and have experienced myself, in various situations, using the metaphor, of how the last mile of the race is the hardest, because you are exhausted, feeling overwhelmed, and want to give up. This is were faith, courage, trust, persistence and prayer come in for me. No one said a good life would be easy, but it is worth fighting for.

Happy your are back on your feet Cath! These ruts are the growing pits, the place were the hardest battles are fought the toughest lessons are learned.
You can be so proud of yourself to have faced this dragon. So now you can pick up your golden fleece and move on to the Six of Wands . I will be right behind you in the cheering crowd :)

I think it is harder to battle the dragon when it is inside us rather than outside ourselves. Glad you have found your footing once again. :)
I've been meaning to tell you how much I enjoy opening your blog and see the beautiful colors in your drawing of the tree and birds!

For sure Bev I certainly agree with you, it the inner dragons! That you for you comments and your encouraging words. This tree is the Arabic Acacia Tree of Life. I'm happy to know it makes you feel good!
