Weekly Tarot Card Reading

This week’s reading involves G. Hobyah. He is all about facing your fears, confronting that which scares you or holds you back. By confronting them you will realize that they are only feeding into your self doubt. He speaks of imaginary fears, unreal hazards and realistic caution. It is time to look for the truth behind our fears, to distinguish between what is real and what is just our projection of old traumas and fears into our imaginary future. By delving into our old patterns, we can see past them to a more liberating life. Only by facing these fears honestly and seeing them, for what they are, do we gain greater ability to open our hearts to courage and gain strength to face the really difficult challenges in our lives. Each false fear confronted and resolved make us more stronger. Now is the time to believe in yourself, in all your capabilities and all that you wish to accomplish. Don’t allow the fear, worry and self doubt to hold you back or control you. Now is the time to face your fears and push back. You’ll see they will shrink in size and you can put the focus on what really matters right now. Don’t get side tracked. You have some great things to accomplish and fear and worry are not part of this story.

Don’t let your ballot go naked. Remember to “dress” it in both envelopes before returning it,” Secretary Boockvar said. “We want every eligible Pennsylvanian to vote and have their voice heard.” Mail ballot voters also must complete and sign the voter’s declaration on the outer envelope.  Even if voters plan to drop off their ballot in person in a drop box or other designated drop-off location, they must still include the pre-addressed outer envelope with their voter’s declaration signed or their ballot won’t be counted.
