Upright: Attack, Challenge, Stand Ground
Reversed: Territorial, Loss of Power, Overwhelm
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take,” said Wayne Gretzky. This is about going after what you want, playing both offense and defense. You’ve gotten this far on your own, and now it’s about sustaining your success and maintaining your reputation. You may be clouted with thoughts like “am I good enough to be here” and experiencing imposter syndrome. Stop it. Remember who you are, review all your previous accomplishments, and know that you got to where you are for a reason. Fight with integrity and honor when you face your challenges. Stand your ground when necessary and don’t back down. Persevere through this challenge, like you have in the past. Not everybody will like you, but they will respect you for standing up for yourself.
Overwhelm is clouding your thoughts and actions, as your tasks have stockpiled into an uncontrollable amount. At first, trying to control everything was your claim to power, however now it has completely run over your life. Overcommitment is preventing you from shining, as you have too many responsibilities to take care of and are unable to balance and give them proper attention. There is no room to breathe as you give your power away by compromising your position and backing down too easily. There is a rigidity in guarding your territory and possessions out of a fear of losing them. Get a hold of yourself and release what doesn’t serve you out of your life. Gain back your sense of power and respect by remembering the true essence of who you are.
