Today’s meditation was ten minutes long, and again incorporated into my yoga/physio practice at the end of the forty minute session I do daily. Moving from the ebb and flow of my yoga practice into the stillness of those ten minutes at the end of the practice feels really nice, and gives my body time to ease out of the stretching and exercise to a calm state. I really like it.
When I see these two cards together today, the message that I get from this imagery is that in order for new things to happen, sometimes old things have to die off first. Its a part of the ebb and flow of life that some things must fade in order to make room for new things to develop. It’s a rhythm that fits into every facet of life, and it’s no different in mine.
The appearance of these cards is a reminder that you can only fit so much on your plate. In order to fit in more, you have to let go of something, because only so much will manage to stay on the plate at once.

Question: What simple way can I show my loved ones that I value them this year?
Reading Summary: Make sure I’m there for them (Prince of Discs) during times of change (Death), and willing to lend an ear without casting judgement (The swan consulting it’s reflection in the Judgement card), and help them find a way forward (Chariot) when they are having trouble seeing a their path through (Princess of Wands) those difficult times.
Take Away: Sometimes what loved ones need most is an ear and a little help finding the path through the trees. This is something that my loved ones come to me for now and then through the years and it sounds like this year will be another one of those years.

Question: How can I overcome my weaknesses?
Reading Summary: Weaknesses are not meant to be overcome (The Moon), instead they are meant to be sat with and learned from (Four of Cups) so that you can move forward into personal growth and while learning how to utilize those weaknesses to your advantage (Seven of Pentacles) for the future.
Take Away: This answer really makes sense to me, because I’ve never really understood how you “overcome” weaknesses. To me, everyone has weaknesses and you learn to adapt to them and use them to your advantage. That doesn’t mean they aren’t still a weakness, only that they have become a useful weakness.
