Today’s meditation was a little over ten minutes long, and I took a break from the “how to” series to just do a quiet, relaxing body scan with extra focus and attention settled on my solar plexus and my soul beneath it.
Today’s draw is the Three of Wands, which in the imagery of this card is a representation of collaboration, harmony, and cooperation in the area of one’s ambitions, passions, and drive. This manifests in progress and planning towards one’s goals and ideals.
What really stands out to me is the busyness of the bees buzzing around the Eschscholzia californica in the foreground of this card. California poppies (Eschscholzia californica) are a symbol of resiliency, and when combined with the meaning of this card, this message is one of strength and motivation. It speaks of working toward your goals, even when roadblocks may make you have need to pause, regroup, and plot a new course to get there.

Question: Where do I need to stop stalling and just make a decision?
Reading Summary: This is about my decision on whether I want to speak to my employer or not about his new manager and her performance issues at one of my part time jobs. I have been weighing whether I want to have a discussion with the owner which may allow me to stay in a job that I enjoy (Two of Wands), or just detach emotionally from the job as a whole and walk away (Eight of Cups). The judgement card in the center encourages taking a close look at the actual results of both actions and use that perspective in making the decision.
Take Away: I need to talk to the owner. Emotionally speaking, my first instinct is to just walk away. The fact is, though, that I have been working for him for a very long time and we have built up a trust between us. I may dislike confrontation in the workplace, but the relationship of trust I’ve built with the owner combined with the comfort and enjoyment I find in the work means that I would regret walking away if i don’t try to talk with him about the issue first.
