DISCLAIMER: The following is my interpretation of the messages I received during this reading as they pertain to the question at hand. You ultimately have to decide whether this is correct for you and your particular situation.
The cards that appeared for your reading were the 10 of swords, the 5 of pentacles and the 7 of cups.
You choose the amethyst, which is all about calming and soothing vibes. I think that’s pretty on par for what you need right now.
I feel like you’ve been experiencing a fair bit of emotional turmoil as a result of COVID, be it from the lockdowns or just fear of the virus itself. I get a sense that the isolation has really taken its toll on you, and that not being able to see and be present with your loved ones has been quite rough on you spiritually.
The best thing you can do is focus on nourishing your spirit. This does not necessarily mean prayer or religion (though it might be if that resonates with you). It’s anything that you feel a personal connection with. As you’ve been craving the connection with your loved ones, reconnecting on whatever level you can is very important for you right now.
That said, it is equally important to find other outlets that feed your soul. This could be a hobby – current, past or brand new – that brings you joy. I feel like a creative outlet of some kind is probably the way for you to go here. Don’t be afraid to try something new because there are a lot of choices available.
In short, find your balance. Reconnect with those you love because these relationships are important, but don’t let yourself rely solely on these connections. Variety is the spice of life, and the happiness and sense of accomplishment you get from doing a hobby or creating something will give you more emotional balance as you navigate past this pandemic.
