Today’s meditation was ten minutes long, and was incorporated into my yoga/physio routine. When I do yoga first and then settle into the meditation after, it seems to create a sense of accomplishment to my routine that I don’t get otherwise. That said, although it creates this sense of accomplishment, I don’t feel as if I get as much out of these meditation sessions as I do from guided meditations.
Or… maybe I’m just missing the guided meditations, as I haven’t been doing them all that often lately.
Today’s draw is The Fool card of the Major Arcana. I love this card for the Fool because it has the feeling of beginnings in a way that I think a lot of cards lack. Yes, there’s an end to that cliff, but looking out over the horizon, there is a vast array of possibilities that the artistry speaks of for me.
And that is the message of the card in today’s draw. The Fool makes an appearance today to remind me that life is a journey, and each day presents new possibilities to discover and explore. It’s okay to look at the world with a sense of wonder and set aside pessimism to take a deep breath and appreciate all life has to offer.

#TarotForGrowthJanuary Challenge Prompt
Question: How can I keep my actions aligned with my goals throughout the year?
Reading Summary: Don’t allow yourself to get overwhelmed (Ten of Fire) and focus on staying optimistic (The Sun), proactive yet well grounded (Knight of Earth) while taking the time to be kind to yourself and others (The Goddess).
Take Away: These are all things that are a bit of a challenge to me. I have a habit of stacking too much on my plate, being pessimistic, and allowing myself to be unkind to myself. These traits will be a hindrance to staying on track with my goals this year if I don’t stay on top of them.

#DiscordTarotholicsJan2020 Challenge Prompt
Question: Draw 3 cards to tell the story of what you would do for a Dove Bar. (Had to change it from Klondike bar, cuz those things are nasty.)
Reading Summary: Dive to the deepest of depths (Ten of Swords), and fly to the highest of heights (The Sun), and use all of my substantial skillz to get what I want (The Magician). WahhhHaHaHa!!! (LoL… Sounds like a Celine Dion song, yeah?)
Take Away: Honestly? Dove Ice Cream Bars are, hands down, the most amazing ice cream bars on the planet. No contest. I’ve tried them all and they are far and above the winner out of them all. That said? I intentionally drew these cards with humor in mind, and they didn’t disappoint.

Question: How will I know I’m improving concerning my procrastination habit?
Reading Summary: Less issues with being upset with myself (Three of Swords), less struggles and more of a sense of accomplishment (Six of Wands atop the Seven of Wands), and obviously I’d be getting my work done (Eight of Pentacles).
Take Away: When I let things pile up because of procrastination, the longer it goes on the worse I feel about myself and life in general. By keeping up with tasks and not allowing them to pile up, I’m able to release the sense of struggling to move forward as well as that sense of disappointment in myself and embrace a sense of accomplishment. It’s also a pretty obvious and telling sign that I’m improving if I’m actually getting things done and feeling on top of my work and projects.
