The Three of Wands in reverse reminds us that there is a time for planning and there is a time for action.
Procrastination is avoidance, and anytime we find ourselves avoiding it is quite simply a response to anxiety. There’s something anxiety-provoking about the possibility of making your dreams come true, especially if it feels like it happens too fast, or comes too easy. And yet, destiny can often be fast passed like that. So we try to slow things down by over-preparing or over-researching.
You can see that your ship will soon be coming in, or can’t you? Perhaps you don’t believe your eyes. Perhaps you don’t believe that it’s really meant for you. So often in the past, the ships have come in for others, leaving you standing there. You’ve learned not to get your hopes up to avoid looking foolish.
It’s true that not every ship, not every beacon, can be meant for you, but what if I told you that your lack of belief in yourself is what has been holding them back. Fortune favors the bold, or so they say. By waiting until something is a sure thing, you will certainly remain safe from disappointment. The problem is that the risk of looking like a fool is often the price of admission.
Stepping out and living your own life as you desire requires you to cut cords. The endless waiting is no doubt a consequence of parental influence. But you are an adult now and it is time to cut any cords connected with your parents. No one has to live with the consequences but you, both the consequences of acting and not acting.
YOU decide your path now. Do not allow yourself to be pinned down or delayed any longer.
Take action and go forth. Your destiny is waiting for you, but it is growing tired of waiting.
