There can be a certain sadness at the end of the day. Its over. Like the end of a vacation, the last moments of a party. But it is a daily ending. We go through it over and over again. Little endings. It can leave us at a bit of a loss.
I did a quick little tarot reading about this, looking at both the sadness and the anxiety and the advice that follows. What I drew was:
I drew the Two of Swords for the sadness. A woman with her arms folded protectively across her chest. As if she is protecting her heart. Maybe we fight to protect ourselves from this sadness? Maybe we are using energy to not admit that, hey, yes, one more down.
- What would it be like to just open up and feel it? Have a little melancholy with your evening tea. Maybe it really won’t be so bad. It might honor the day. It might bring you closer to yourself by being honest. You might find that it is quite o.k.
I drew the Three of Pentacles for the anxiety part of the end of the day. This one is obvious. We work each day with goals and desires. We don’t always reach them. And when we don’t, we beat ourselves up over it. The end of the end of the day is the time we have to let go. We don’t have a choice in the matter, the day is gone, nothing we can do about it. But some part of ourselves wants to finish up the unfinishable. That can create anxiety.
- What would it be like to just let that go?
The advice card I drew is the Queen of Swords. Mature. Wise. Faces the truth, but doesn’t get worked up over it. She can see ‘what is’ and still not get all worked up over it.
- So what would it be like to just be in the acceptance of it?
When you give it a try, you find the beauty that is there. Being o.k. with however it shows up allows everything to fit into the right place.
