If I was to pull one card to represent my life at the moment there is a strong possibility this is the card I would pull (this or the Tower but that's a card for another day). It wouldn't necessarily represent where I currently am, but where I am aiming to be. There has been a lot of changes going on in my life, some have been hard but they all seem to be leading me to a place of balance. I am learning to live with all sides of my nature, positive and negative, and to find a sense of middle ground that I comfortable with. I am learning that I have control of my life and that I must embrace my whole being, and exercise that control, in order to move forward. I'm on a difficult, and often painful, journey right now, but it is one that I know will only lead me to a better place.
