Today’s lesson is card #11 Withdrawal.
Please read the article below to gain some understanding of the Withdrawal card because I’ll be doing a little extra something below. One thing I want to mention is about the story position. In my view, it illustrates the essence of the card meaning. Peter please comment if you wish to add more to my statement. If anyone else has any thoughts to add please comment. 🙂
NOTE: To all reading my post please read Peter’s comment below.
I think I will write about a few combinations with the cards we have studied so far. You can do a daily draw with 2 cards. Actually, you can do whatever pleases you. I would continue with the 1 card draw and pull another card placing it face down. The second card may expand on the first one or it could provide a mini outcome of the first one. The latter part is applicable to only some cards because many cards already contain and outcome/answer.
I will select a few cards from the first 10 we have studied thus far to give you an idea of how to blend meanings. I would suggest you pull out your cards and look at them if you have a deck. If you don’t have a deck you can order it from the links at the very bottom of the post.
Flow-Singer + Withdrawal
Let’s suppose your daily draw card is Flow-Singer. You already know this is a card of a balanced perspective. Your day starts out smooth. You find yourself involved in a situation that tests the serenity you are feeling. The advice of the Withdrawal card is suggesting that you don’t get too involved. It may not be your problem so it’s probably a good idea not to make any decisions if the situation calls for one. It’s ok to pull back and let the situation work itself out. Well, that’s just one way to look at these cards. Lots depends too if you had something on your mind when pulling the cards. The duo could be answering your question.
Torpor + Withdrawal
If you drew these two cards it will be a day of reflection for sure. The cards recommend that you take it easy. It could be a day of recuperation. You could be under the weather today battling a virus. Maybe your relationship went belly up recently and you are feeling the emotional pain. If that be the case the Withdrawal card is suggesting that you embrace this feeling and not to blame yourself.
Clarity + Withdrawal
This is an interesting combination. I think this duo is pointing out that you will come to some realization today about yourself or a situation. You could be in a ‘dark’ place with your thoughts. Even though one can possess clarity it doesn’t mean it’s always a good thing. Being honest with yourself isn’t always a fun experience. You may want to reach out to someone today just to discuss your feelings. Maybe you will learn you did not get the job you applied for and have to face the fact you were not as good as you thought.
Combining the Rainring cards can be a seamless process. Many of you already have experience blending meanings of cards. Some of the Rainring cards explore inner depths that some of the other systems do not have. Enjoy your studies!
