Have you ever gotten yourself into a sticky situation but then managed to get yourself out of it by sheer dumb luck? Maybe you told a little white lie. Nobody found out and so you resumed your life with or without guilt pangs. And then you found yourself in that same situation again. Perhaps this time the little white lie was an even bigger white lie. And this time, you're found out. Didn't you learn your lesson the first time?
Actually, no, you didn't. Aside from karma, action and reaction, and maybe even a need for self-torment, why do we make the same mistakes again? Well, the universe has its time frames, its cycles. When you get stuck in a rut, it's as if the universe's record is skipping and returning back to the same point. How do you get out of it? What do you need to do? Well obviously, you're doing something wrong. Possibly, there is a different way you need to handle your affairs. It's probable, too, that the problem has nothing to do with the situation that keeps repeating. This is just a small symptom of the bigger bug.
Tuning In to the Problem
If the universe is trying to tell you something, it's a good idea to give yourself a reading (or find someone else to do it for you) and meditate over your possibilities. You're at a turning point in your life and for you to move forward, something needs to give. Divination can tell you what that something is.
Take heart! Deep suffering for a lost relationship or the loss of someone who was close to you is a clear sign that you are nearing a crucial turning point in your life. When one door closes another one opens, but it only opens when you're ready for it. The timing is up to you. When you're ready to let go, the difficult period will pass.
