The Woodward and Queen of Vessels - There is no easy way out

Today’s word to draw a card with is "Crossroads" and I got The Woodward and Queen of vessels-Salmon from the Wildwood Tarot.
Some of my initial thoughts where: if anybody could make the right decisions to find his way out of the dark forest it is The Woodward. But even the strong and experienced Woodward needs some quiet time to collect his thoughts and weigh his options before his can make the right choice, not only for himself but also for his environment. I wonder if his cup is also filled with coffee just like mine is, when I am trying the make up my mind about what to do next and where to go from here.
Next I got the Queen of Vessels to add some  intuitive wisdom to this post. She is the living example that the best way is most often not the easiest way. It takes a whole lot of courage and determination to swim upstream but she knows without an doubt, this is the best choice for her and her future offspring.
She advises us to not only to make our decision based on our strength but also on our intuition because together these two aspects of ourselves can show us the way out of any forest.

“You can always take the easy way out and give up, but real strength comes, when you decide to keep pushing forward, no matter what the circumstances are”

  1. Wonderful message! Sometimes the right path isn't the easiest, but continuing onward anyway can lead to great things. Love the quote at the end too. :)

  2. Sometimes the "easier, softer way" is not the right way. It takes courage and strength to try that new path!

  3. If it is always easier then everybody would take that way. Sometimes we really need the struggle to help us find our way. Here's to a cup of cheer to help you with your day!

  4. I wonder if the world would end as we know it, if she didn't end her life by swimming upstream?

    1. I suppose her dying has it place in the grand scheme of things and having offspring is worth dying of exhaustion. It is a good thing, they are not aware of their impending death when they are going on this journey; They are just frisky
