Today’s meditation was ten minutes long, and focused on a topic that comes up quite a lot. That is the topic of meditation being about the practice, not the accomplishment.
Practice is the key word. We practice. We do it. We work at it. It is a journey. And meditation is all about that journey, not some imagined finish line or perfection standard that is both unrealistic and unattainable.
Today’s draw is another double without a jumper, which means that they both came out of the deck together. In fact? They were so together that at first I didn’t realize there were two. The cards in today’s draw are the Six of Cups with the Tower card as a jumper.
That is what I see. And honestly, I feel like this is a repeating message lately. I’m gearing up for the holiday season, but I’m not feeling the “oomph” that I need to prepare for what’s coming. I know you say that I am super focused on responsibility and goals, and you’re right…. but there’s something missing. Some part that I’m not connecting with this year, and it’s hindering my progress. I need to get past it or figure out what it is and work it out, because I would very much like to avoid that crashing chaotic change that the Tower presents.
And that is what these cards are. They are a warning. They are not a prediction so much as an indication of what is needed to keep things on track.

Another #TarotForGrowthOctober prompt again today. I’m definitely going to try to do the bonus readings every day (or near to it) for the rest of this month.
Question: What relationship(s) in my life encourage growth?
Take Away: It’s sort of funny that I was anticipating a far more specific response from the cards for this. Instead, it gave me the information I need to look at my relationships with others (everyone from my bosses to my friends and loved ones) and examine each with that criteria in mind. The answer in these cards doesn’t point to any one person or certain relationships, but rather encourages the evaluation of each relationship to find the qualities within them that… fit. This allows for an interesting perspective that I’m definitely going to be taking forward with me through the near future (or beyond).
