When you see Shadow it challenges you to face your fears, insecurities and weaknesses head-on. Before you can go racing down the road into your new life, you must first experience the powerful yet unnerving energy of Shadow and delve into the deepest darkest areas of your subconscious.
The card shows a man gazing at a shadow image of himself, reminding you that sometimes you have to look at, accept, and then work with the darker aspects of yourself. The parts considered as not being positive and acceptable. Everyone has things that they don’t like about themselves.
When you live with or raised by people who are mean, unreasonable, abusive, and who can’t attune to your needs you learn to cope, to survive emotionally, mentally, and physically. Such coping methods are not rooted in sustainable loving but in protection and defensiveness.
It’s only through experiencing this part of yourself that you can make it past the shadow and into the light. It’s very much about being on your own and having to sort all this out for yourself. It is no good expecting others to do it for you, for they may not know what is needed.
This is not a good time for you to make decisions, its more about time for inner reflection
At this time you could be facing your worst fears and facing the dark night of your soul. You need to confront issues that in the past you have avoided. Be courageous and know that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
On the other hand, you may be worrying about nothing. Your fears are all in your mind and will never be realised. You may feel lost and scared with all that is expected of you or after what you have been through. Feel the fear and do it anyway. Face your fears now for they may not be as bad as you think.
In regards to relationships, this card may suggest trouble behind the scenes. On the outside, everything seems rosy but delve deeper and you may well find a hornet’s nest. The happy couple may only be an illusion. Look very closely behind the outward appearance of things for they may not be what they appear to be.
In regards to health, Shadow means you could be dealing with issues surrounding mental health, alcohol, drugs, malnutrition, a disorder of the lymph system, sleep issues or hidden diseases.
“Evil (ignorance) is like a shadow–it has no real substance of its own, it is simply a lack of light. You cannot cause a shadow to disappear by trying to fight it, stamp on it, by railing against it, or any other form of emotional or physical resistance. In order to cause a shadow to disappear, you must shine light on it.” ~ Shakti Gawain
