Cutting Your LossesNone of us will win every single battle throughout the course of our lives. There are times when we don’t have the strength to win, or we may have gotten ourselves involved in a situation that we were not meant to take part in. In such a situation, the first step is to admit that there is no way for you to come out on top. Admitting that you’ve lost can be excruciatingly painful, but it is the only way to limit the amount of losses that you will continue to take. It can be especially difficult if you’ve invested large amounts of time, resources, and emotion into the battle that you are about to let go of. However, recognizing the fact that you were not meant to win in the surest way to defend what you have left and emerge with peace of mind knowing that you’ve tried your hardest. You may be dealing with such a situation; despite your constant efforts, it feels as though there is no way for you to fight your way to victory. It seems like no matter what you do, nothing turns out in your favor. This may be due to a variety of reasons: you may not be qualified to handle the situation, the restrictions that you’ve placed on yourself may be preventing you from performing to the best of your ability, or the struggle may truly be one that is unbeatable. Now is the time to let this struggle go and move on with your life, dedicating your time and energy to far more important matters. This loss does not define you; instead, consider this as a crucial lesson that will teach you how to move forward into the future. Now that you understand your limitations, you will have a much clearer vision of how you can make yourself stronger so that one day, battles that are similar to this don’t even require a second thought.

If you know what you are doing, try the Free Card Spirits oracle. The unstable arcana spirits dwell in the beliefs of the consultant. If your belief is strong enough, they might help you in many ways – for example – conceive a baby, seduce a lover or curse an enemy. It is a dangerous kind of cartomancy, so it is not for the beginners.
