Dealing with Resistance

Clare tells Agnes in her Second Letter to respect those who oppose her quest, but not to do what they tell her to:

“(17) Indeed, if someone tells you something else or suggests anything to you that may hinder your perfection and that seems contrary to your divine vocation, even though you must respect him, still, do not follow his advice (…).”

The cards for Day 6 to 12 focus on your vocation. The question of today is about dealing with who or what hinders your divine vocation.

How to deal with who or what that hinders my divine vocation?

(Relate this card to the card for your stumbling block, day 11 and maybe 10, the dust you should not raise.)

I need to shine in dealing with what hinders my vocation: feeling whole, radiant, at peace, and joyful, acting from my own centre. I have pulled the Sun from the Tarot of the Crone. 


The Sun counteracts the Devil, the gaping hole of depression and anger, which is the dust I must not raise. The Sun also counteracts the fire that is eating the hem of my cloak from the Seven of Wands, this is my stumbleblock. This fire burns my power away. It is guilt, and low self-esteem. I am glad there is a Sun in me, remembering me of my vocation.
