Predictable Unpredictabilities

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Modern Love Tarot - Wheel of FortuneToday’s draw is the Wheel of Fortune, which is traditionally a representation of luck (both good and bad), changing circumstances, the ups and downs of life, and the cyclical nature of life and the world.

The hourglass is an interesting take on the Wheel of Fortune for me.  I usually see the Wheel of Fortune as an unpredictable card.  Yet with both the hourglass and the sea behind it?  There is a level of predictability present that bleeds into the card’s meaning.  After all, an hourglass measures the same amount of time again and again, and the sea’s tides go in and out on a predictable schedule as well. This then makes me think of repeating cycles and that everything moves on in its own time.

The message here is that not everything can be rushed.  Some things move at their own pace, no matter how much you might want to change that. Stop trying to control ever little aspect of life. It’s okay to take a breath and let things move at their own pace instead.

@thetarotprofessor Self Love Challenge Prompt
Questions for February 1st:

Семейный ОракулWhy did I feel called to this self-love challenge at this time?

You often find the effort to be kind to yourself a burden and a struggle (Её ноша), but you continue to be dedicated to trying (Верность). This challenge gives you an opportunity to find insights into how to do this easier and better than before.

How might my life improve as I cultivate more self-love?

It will allow you to show your true self instead of being tucked behind a mask (Быть в Тени Другого), which is empowering and better allows you to care not just for yourself but those you love as well (Отец Принцессы). Allowing who you are to shine means less effort and stress in your life on a day to day basis to uphold masks that you think protect you.

#DiscordTarotholicsFeb2023 Challenge Prompt
Topic for February 1
: Do the Imbolc Spread

Modern Love Tarot - The Fool, Death, Six of Pentacles, Ace of SwordsWhat seeds need planted in my life right now?

The Fool – You need to make a concerted effort towards allowing yourself more fun and carefree moments.  Not everything has to be serious all the time.

What preparations do I need to begin making to prepare those seeds for growth?

Death – Be open to change and allow it to happen instead of grasping so tightly to the way things have away been that you don’t allow things to change for the better.

What in my life is beginning a new phase of reawakening and renewal?

Six of Pentacles – When you give, you get… and when you get it’s important to give. Open yourself to the generosity of others.  You already offer so much of yourself, but take so much less in return. Allow them to reciprocate, as it creates a more healthy cycle for all.

How can I best foster that awakening?

Ace of Swords – Communication is key.  Share with others what you need and how you’re feeling. They can’t reciprocate if they think you need nothing and have it all under control and handled.

I took a nap and worked at nursing a headache most of the day. It finally eased up this evening.

Results Worth Celebrating

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Magical Nature Tarot - The SunToday’s draw is the Sun card, which is traditionally a representation of happiness, success, joy, and the celebration of life.

What I see expressed in the imagery of this specific card is a heavy leaning into success.  There is a clock face in the imagery, as well as a tree and the radiant outward projection of energy from that tree outward beyond its personal space and into the world beyond.  Trees reach for the sky and the sun, and it’s those that can reach the highest that usually thrive the most.

The message in today’s cards is about reaching for what you want and letting your reach carry you into success. It’s not enough to want something, but to -reach- for it and put your all into it can bring surprising results that are well worth celebrating.

Lionharts’ #TheJanuaryTarot 2023 Year of Evolution Challenge Prompt
Question for January 31st
: What am I asked to take to heart as I give closure to January?

Magical Nature Tarot - Seeker of Swords, Page of Swords, The Emperor, Ten of PentaclesReading Summary: Think less (Seeker of Swords), appreciate more (Ten of Pentacles), and it will provide you with more control in the end (The Emperor).

Take Away: Remember that sometimes you just have to go with the flow and not try to work out every little detail of every little thing. By allowing space instead of over-planning, you give yourself room to connect with others and build the types of relationships and stability that, in the end, works better over all for you.

The path to success lies in collaboration, and is not a journey of one.

I skipped half of my readings for today cuz I was tired.

Imbolc Lenormand Reading

Imbolc Lenormand Reading with the Carta Mundi Lenormand

To be left in the dark.

Book and Moon – Interesting that these are the exact same two cards that were handed to me as being what to focus on this week in my self-care Saturday reading… inverted. Here you are being told that focusing too hard on your mental health issues could be a problem.

What will the light bring?

Rider and Sun – There is a need to lean into optimism and positivity more deeply, and in doing so it will perpetuate itself. Just like a smile is contagious, so too can that positivity and optimism spread to other parts of your life and permeate them if you make an effort to allow it to do so.

Intention needed for my body.

Cross and Anchor – Make sure that you are doing the practices that you know help you in grounding your chronic pain issues. Physiotherapy. Yoga. Meditation, and the extra stretching. Treating the scars with emollients. All of it is a part of the process that keeps your pain under control.

Intentions needed for my Spirit.

Broom and Ring –  Don’t punish yourself for breaking obligations that are no longer working for you. Just end of them and move on.

Healing advice.

Garden and Birds – Spend more time with others. It’s good for you right now.
