A few large scale life events have happened recently for us here at Redoubt Forge, one of which we will be able to post about in the near future. But back in the workshop to keep soldiering on with this montante.
Now to attach the side rings and finish with some pretty file work.
IV OF SWORDS || DIVINATION OF THE DAY
Happy Friday! TGIF ☾
The IV of Swords reminds us to take it easy and use time for introspection. We may be too vulnerable right now to share a lot of vital energy or communicate unnecessarily. Stop worrying about the future and just reflect on all the progress you have made thus far. If you are experiencing feelings of rejection, isolation, or loneliness, let it happen. Confront the pain within your heart in order to heal the wound. Do not turn your back on the healing and use discrimination in relationships. You may have experienced purposeless criticism. This is a time for mental rest and contemplation.
You are moving away from the chains of others and the emotional drama that they attempt to dump onto your very being. When an individual is unable to take responsibility for their own life, they constantly project on to others. You should rest in reason and fully get in touch with your own being because you will always encounter individuals that feel the need to be in competition. You cannot be bothered with this state of existence.
With this mental breakthrough, keep in mind that the fire of your strong will is always there to assist you. Call on it to get in touch with the strength of your Spirit in the face of adversity. You know who you are. Your community may not feel as supportive as it could be right now, but you are moving forward quickly. You will never be a prisoner to others, no matter how much they want that to be the case.
Do not get discouraged during this time of rest because it is necessary to come out of a very painful situation. This is certainly a time where this gnosis is being deeply seeded into your consciousness. For this reason, rest in reason. This knowledge of this self will be fully integrated in the near future, however, it requires a balance of mental sovereignty and seclusion. Take time to clear your mind in order to feel your truth—center yourself in your body. The sorrow will soon pass. ♠ Jill M

Final set of a 4 set reading.
The path unfolding.
Hard work has been the name of the game and its not over yet. Focus on balancing emotions dug up from this work and continue to make proactive adjustments despite feelings of sorrow, pain, worthlessness, and failure. Manage problems one at a time vs getting lost in the big picture. Trim and discard that which does not serve you, this can be hard so make sure to take time for yourself to heal. You owe nobody anything.
The result of continuing this course of work will be a more joyful life, better health, and greater stability and productivity on one hand, and fertile opportunities, abundance, and the ability to see yourself as others see you and an empowerment of sexuality on the other.
My plans. Getting lit involves prep- get HYDRATED af before. If your pee isn't clear, it should be. (That's my daily goal and suggestion too) make sure you've eaten that day- and keep drinking water as you drink alcohol. If you're going to cross-buzz, know your limit. NEVER DRINK AND DRIVE. Feel free to add what I've missed that is required self love for getting lit✨ .
