The Taboo. The Page of Pentacles
How will you break it? Ace of Wands
The New New. The Fool
Leo! Let me start by saying, I love this reading for you. The first card, the taboo in your reading, is
The Page of Pentacles. This is a card of being a beginner, someone who has limited skill but a real desire and willingness to learn. And how this idea is taboo in dominant culture relates to something many of us suffer with silently: imposter syndrome. So often, we are afraid to admit we have NO IDEA how to do a thing–as adults–and we train our children to fear this as well. Getting a wrong answer is punished. Showing up and doing it wrong is shamed. But fuck, that is genuinely the only way to learn anything. So, many of us live in perpetual states of anxiety about being caught doing something wrong, and as a result our minds and hearts and bodies stop learning. And Leo is often the sign of seeking praise for what you do well. So you are breaking this cycle and stepping boldly into the taboo of not knowing what the fuck you are doing–publicly! WooHoo! How will you do this? With the energy of
The Ace of Wands, a card of fresh starts, new beginnings, and the spark of creativity. Together these cards say it is time to begin learning something difficult, something you are not naturally skilled at but that you are excited about, and to put in the time (it will take a long time) to slowly, carefully, patiently, learn. The final card, the New NEW:
The Fool – 0, of course! What this tells you is that, even more than learning how to do a thing, the skill you will be building is that of being a learner. You will get more and more and more capable of not knowing anything, and this will feel like freedom. Enjoy the dance; we all want to see you shine.
