Today's Card is the 9 of Swords:
Things seem worse when asleep when imagination can take over or perhaps you're over-anxious and over-thinking a situation. Once we wake up we realize things were far worse in our heads than reality actually is.
The Shadow Card (behind the scenes) is the 10 of Cups:
A happily ever after; there's the happy union with traditional boy and girl under a rainbow and the sky is blue and there's a home in the background. Like a loving family out for a walk together.
If I were reading for myself, today's draw would be spot-on. In CT we're dealing with so much STUFF and it's weighing heavily on my mind. I am in fact losing sleep over that which I cannot control however today's reading also encourages me to look at my personal Happily Ever After, because in fact I DO have that. Not the human children but I have four fur-babies and an extremely loving and supportive husband.
