Transition and Adjustment

Today’s meditation has not yet happened yet, as I sort of came out of bed like a shot this morning and had so much going on in my brain that I didn’t even realize that it hadn’t gotten done until about an hour ago.  I will make sure I do it before bed.

Ostara Tarot - Five of Cups and Nine of CoinsToday’s draw is another double without a jumper, which means that the cards came out of the deck together as one.  The cards in today’s draw are the Nine of Coins and the Five of Cups.

My read off of these cards today is intuitive off of the imagery, and speaks to the fact that you are going to be a key aspect in keeping me emotionally stable and positive as the transition begins to fall into place for the end of the holiday rush.

I have adapted and adjusted, as I always do, to the chaos and workload and exhaustion involved.  And at the end of the rush things will abruptly change and I will be left feeling adrift.  That sensation brings with it a massive amount of anxiety concerning my business.

As I strive to adjust in a healthy way, today’s cards remind me to depend upon you to help keep me afloat and in a healthy space both mentally and emotionally.

Question: What important lesson did I learn this year?

Fairy Tale Tarot - Spanish Edition

Reading Summary: This is all about making the choices (Two of Swords) that are right for me (The Lovers) in order to make the journey to my goals a smoother experience (Ten of Pentacles).

Take Away: I have a habit of weighing my choices and going with whatever one seems the most practical, logical, or responsible option.  Sometimes, these decisions aren’t really the ones that call to me and that I connect to the strongest, but rather what I feel “should” be the right choice.   One of the lessons that has really been driven home this past year, though, is that sometimes life doesn’t have to be practical or logical… or even responsible.  Sometimes life is just all around better when you go with what you want rather than what might be seen as the most “reasonable” choice.

Self Care Saturday (on Sunday)

As I’ve mentioned before, these readings are (not usually) bearing in on any one thing or event in my life, as the question used is asking for a more general outlook. This is a self care exercise, and are not meant as a predictive reading.

The question is… What do I need to focus for self-care through the week ahead?

EarthFive of Swords and Innocence – I see a coffee stain. You know those rings that stain wood when you put a hot cup of coffee on an unprotected wood surface? That’s what I see. The message here is that things can’t always go as planned, but it’s important to see those moments not as frustrations and struggles, but as opportunities for adventure and growth.

AirJudgement and Truth – Sometimes it’s important to step back and look at the big picture and make sure you are on track. This week is going to be a time when this is probably going to be slapping me in the face. It will be important to look through the lens of honesty to see not just the truth of what has happened but a clear perspective on what is to come.

WaterDeath and Solitude – Ooph… this is not going to be pretty, yeah? It’s okay though, yeah? The cards here are about the slowing down of the holiday rush, which always brings with it a bit of a moroseness as I adjust to things going back to normal. The cards are a reminder not to close myself off during this time of adjustment that is coming.

FireEight of Wands and Silence – I have all the tools at hand that I need to finish out the holiday rush, no matter the speed I need to work with or how busy it becomes. By the end of the week, though, things will have slowed down and quieted to the point that I’ll be feeling a spark of anxiety.

WaningMovement 2 – It’s time to let go of the present and move on to the next stage. This is an echo of what the cards are already speaking of above. The last few weeks have been all about strength and control. Now, that time is beginning to wane.

WaxingGrowth 0 and Growth 21 – It’s time to ground and center, and look ahead to what I want to happen for the year ahead.

Take Away – I am approaching the end of a very manic and frantic cycle that is filled with an abundance of chaos and control working in balance with each other. As this time comes to a close over the next week, I will go through an adjustment period that runs the risk of toppling me into anxiety and depression if I let it. Instead, I need to make sure I am staying focused upon the future and what I want to manifest into my life in the new year ahead.
