21 Ways - Step Eight (Part Two)

Golden Tarot - 6 of Cups

Step 8:2 asks us to list as many metaphors for our chosen card as we can:

Listen and learn.
Once bitten, twice shy.
Birds of a feather flock together.
Two for Tuesday.
Give and it shall be given unto you.
Two's company, three's a crowd.
Six in one; half a dozen the other.
The gift of knowledge.
Sowing the seeds of love.

Then we are asked to put them into given statements:

I am listening and learning.
I am once bitten, twice shy.
I am sowing the seeds of love.

The situation feels like the gift of knowledge.
The situation feels like two's company, three's a crowd.
The situation feels like six-in-one, half-a-dozen the other.

What do these metaphors suggest about your own situation?:

From my very first deck, the 6 of Cups has always been one of my favorites. It is very appropriate to have this as my chosen card for this study. Not only do I have a bond with the card's meaning in general, but I am also going through a living situation right now that is very suitable to this card as well. I am definitely a once bitten, twice shy kind of person. I give all of myself in a relationship (no matter what kind), but the first time I'm hurt by someone, I am ALWAYS cautious of them from that point on.

These days I am living back in my father's house and living the metaphors....listen and learn, the gift of knowledge, the two's company, three's a crowd, the six-in-one, half-a-dozen the other. They are all VERY appropriate. I feel as though no matter how hard I try, things never change. I couldn't have chosen a better card for myself at this stage in my life.
