To help my personal growth, I've decided that not only will I have a card of the year, I will also choose a word each month to study and reflect on. I'll be reading books and articles on my word of the month as well as figuring out activities that will help me incorporate that word into my life. My word of the month for February was:
At the beginning and end of each month, I will also do a reading. The beginning of the month reading will be about what lessons I can learn from the card and the end of month reading will be about what I did learn.

What did I learn about nurturing?
As I reflect on this, I am realizing that there is a positive and negative to ego. I tend to view ego as a negative as in I think that I am all that. However, the ego also helps me to see that I am okay. That I am a good person. that I am worthy of love and affection. This card is telling me to balance letting ego turn me into a megalomania and ego helping me to be healthy and safe. I'm realizing that as I read this I need to reach out to my ego and to nurture her. She is often fragile and hiding in the shadows and I need to draw her out and help her to be healthy.
