Game of Thrones Tarot/Enchanted Spell Oracle
Eight of Cups
Jon Snow, walking away from Castle Black - his watch has ended... and that is what this card is telling us. Something has changed and it is time to walk away. This can be a really hard decision to make, we get used to things as they are and habits are tough to break away from, but it is necessary and deep down you know you need to go.
This card is a great reminder that what may appear to be weakness is actually a strength. Sensitivity is often seen as a bad thing, when in fact the ability to feel deeply and compassionately is a Good Thing. Sometimes it can be really overwhelming to be open to all the feels though and that is when you need to shield yourself so you don't take on the burdens of others and burnout. Total Empath right here and this is so true. Remember to center yourself and try to limit your time with the energy vampires or overly negative people that can drain you.
So today, are you feeling totally overwhelmed by people or situations? It is ok to put up your shields to guard against those negative vibes and it also totally fine to walk away from situations that are no longer tenable. Your compassionate and empathic self can only do so much before you crash so take care of you! Then you can better deal with the world at large. It is totally OK to be your own Valentine too - just in case you have hit your people limit today.
