Upright: Familiarity, Innocence, Nostalgia
Reversed: Rose-Colored Glasses, Idealistic, Childhood Trauma
It’s playtime! Taking a stroll down memory lane reminds you of childhood memories, full of warmth and innocence. Reliving past memories makes you feel nostalgic for the good ol’ days, free from stress and worry. The comfort and safety of your warm, happy-go-lucky memories is missing like a sore thumb in your day-to-day. You are wistful for familiarity, warmth, and simpler times. Responsibilities can feel heavy as you grow older, and there is a wish to go back in time. Reunite with your inner child and let her come out and play! Allow yourself to discover the world in a new way, like a baby with fresh eyes. There is always room for more laughter and joy. Heart open, feel the purity of childhood innocence fill you up with inspiration and lighthearted fun.
The past is coming back to haunt you! Trapped in time, your unresolved childhood trauma is affecting you and stunting your growth. By living in the past, you’re missing out on joyful moments that are right in front of you. Rose-colored glasses skew your perception on what “should” be versus what your reality reflects. Process your past wounds with compassion and loving care. Treat yourself like you are a small child who just wants to be seen and heard and tend to her needs. Acceptance for who you are versus playing your idealistic self will help you move forward with authentic power. Start the healing process now and turn the tables on time. Take personal responsibility and step into your own potential! Be proud of who you have grown to be, flaws and all.
