the hierophant + spiritual crisis

i have come to a crossroads or standstill (i'm not sure which) in my healing. the first six months i dedicated myself to overcoming the initial trauma and aftermath. as i distant myself from it, i find myself asking, "what's next?" as i break free from everything, i find more blocks, and then more blocks. 

i'm asking the right questions, exploring the right avenues, but i still feel trapped. i turned to tarot, something i haven't done in quite some time. tarot is frustrating for me - i look for answers it cannot give my directly.

"i feel like i'm at a crossroads/standstill - what's making me feel like this?" i pulled the hierophant.

staying true to ourselves is extremely difficult at times. we don't like confrontation, or disappointing others, or we're scared, so we become different. we become another version of ourself. it doesn't seem dangerous, creating minute personas, but at their very core they are a coping mechanism, for us to survive. we can find ourselves so far away from who we once were, or who we yearn to be.  we're floating, and during this period everything becomes a tether, everything becomes a lifeboat. we want to find ourselves so bad. and it's time for us to stop thinking that we aren't fully being ourselves at every step on our journey. find yourself, within yourself, each + every moment.

we are asked to stand up for our beliefs. we are asked to speak up, fight back. maybe you're feeling more forthcoming. maybe you're not biting your tongue anymore. maybe your path of purpose is lighting the way for you again. we are learning how to become empowered, how to get what we want.. without sacrifice, without hurting others, without being selfish. we are learning how to be compassionate warriors. something about autumn makes us feel grounded in ourselves. the colors, the food, the holidays + community. plant your heels into the earth. we take care of ourselves + make good decisions when we feel solid, when we feel strong.

overall/ carpo (summer fruits). now that the season has shifted, we begin to categorize + sum up the past. if you've started school or returned from vacation, you're being paraded with questions of "how was your summer? what did you do? where did you go?" i think we all feel these subtle critiques + judgments even if we didn't have a break. we start feeling doubtful of ourselves + our (exterior) progress. we become so anxious trying to tally up all our successes, + we realize we fall short.. maybe compared to others, or more likely, to our own expectations. honoring the seasons + the cycles of the earth is more than just noticing, or following along with associated concepts.. you need to honor your own cycles. maybe this summer sucked for you, maybe you did "nothing." what's wrong with that? there's always something under the surface, right? let's bring our focus there this moon cycle, to what others can't see. let's start counting our achievements in our own way.
