Tarot: Obstacle Hypercritical

Let’s have more fun exploring spreads in the tarot. Here we have a 5 card spread with some general, practical advice from The Housewives Tarot.

In simple terms, with a good dose of water and elbow grease you could have a pristine palace.

10 of Pentacles, 3 of Cups, 7 of Wands, 6 of Wands, Ace of Wands. The Housewives Tarot

Well, that’s a lot of wands. Perhaps it’s time to make some magic happen.

This is a reminder to look at what is an obstacle getting in the way of your happiness and what needs to be done to fix it. Sometimes something will get right in the way of your happiness and you’ve got to deal with it to make things shine again.

We all want our house (our situation and way of life) to be in order so we can be happy, but sometimes there are some obstacles and issues that need our time and energy of fine tuning to get everything just right.

We all know that the world can be a messy place and needs some serious cleanup. When we get to work and put our energy toward making things right others will definitely take notice. By being the example of how to create the change necessary to get life in order with clarity, we create new awareness that gives others a new, healthy perspective.

However, sometimes when we are extra picky and critical about how we want or expect things to be, it can become obsessive compulsive, where we feel like we have to go the extra mile to make things just right. A hyper-critical approach to life can in itself be the obstacle to happiness. And sometimes it is other people that are the critics putting pressure on us to have things a certain way pushing us to take action to satisfy how they want things to be. But when we have such external pressures it’s a reminder to assess the situation and ask yourself if what they want is what you really want, or is their opinion zapping your positive energy.

Of course it’s generally more pleasant to have things in order, but if you’re spending too much time with the fine tuning to have things a certain way, or using a lot of your energy to please what others want and expect from you, you might just be missing out on appreciating what is already fine. Instead of going totally crazy worrying about every single little detail you might just need to surrender a little control and put your energy toward enjoying what is already okay.

Here we see the suggestion that perhaps things actually were okay before, and someone or something is trying to get in the middle of things and make it seem like it’s a mess that needs to be put in order and controlled. Sometimes you have to say NO and not participate or allow someone to mess up your life in order to get your house back in order.

If you can be decisive about what YOU really want things to be like instead of giving in to the expectations of others, you could find yourself feeling a lot more empowered and satisfied to do and have things in a way that sustains your happiness.
