Today’s meditation was a little over ten minutes long and focused upon directing warmth and kindness to the self, then loved ones, and then outward into the world. It was nice to get back to the guided meditations and I found the practice very relaxing and a good way to start my day.
Today’s draw is the High Priestess card, which is usually an indication of intuition and the subconscious. What I see in this card today is intuitive rather than traditional, though, because what really drew my eye in this card this morning was the tree that grows both apart from, and yet also through her.
I see a reminder that when things get chaotic, grounding yourself is important. Too much chaos without that grounding must makes everything feel that much more cacophonous.
Grounding is good. It’s a life skill that’s really important to my well being. Today’s card is a reminder to do it regularly through this chaotic time of year.
(Interestingly? The two figures in this card that are representing the High Priestess’ pillars make me think of the Gatekeepers in the Neverending Story. Remember those?)

Question: What should I focus on as this year comes to a close?
Reading Summary: Staying centered, grounded, and self-possessed (Queen of Cups) will assist me in not just my own self-care, but in how I care for others (The Empress). Remember that even when difficult choices are before me (Two of Swords), I have all the tools I need (The Magician) to make things work and make it through.
Take Away: I managed to make (as in yes, actually make the jewelry pieces), process, and package 114 orders today as a part of catching up on what has piled up while I was away at mom’s house. I’m only about 2/3rds of the way there, but I wouldn’t have made it as far as I have without that centered calm. I will get everything done, and I will keep up on orders… and I have what I need to do that, not just in the skills and supplies necessary, but also in the help (re: the red fox in the Two of Swords) I’m enlisting from L and J.
