Today’s meditation was just over eleven minutes long and focused on finding happiness not through all of the consumerism and excess in the world, but by moderation. And how moderation assists in setting the soul free because there is less to weigh you down.
Honestly? Moderation is not usually my strong suit. It’s something that I struggle with a lot, in fact. And the message in today’s guided meditation was well needed, even if this particular topic is one that I feel I fall short on pretty regularly.
To me, the imagery of this card speaks to me of an inherent need to connect with the earth, and that sometimes that’s not always possible. Heading back home means that I have to work a little harder to get into the forests I love so dearly, and it creates a longing within me.
The appearance of today’s card is a reminder that it’s okay. Even at times when you can’t be as close to those things you love as you want to be… it’s okay. That connection is still there, and will be there whenever I need it. I just have to make the effort of seeking it out.

Question: What is my relationship with my spirit?
Reading Summary: I’m putting a good deal of effort towards learning (Eight of Pentacles atop Page of Pentacles), but I need to set aside the dance and relax a bit (Judgement crossed over the Two of Pentacles).
Take Away: My relationship with my spirit of this time is one of seeking and learning. The problem lies in the fact that I’m trying to do too much juggling of different responsibilities and endeavors, which causes tension instead of just relaxing and allowing things to flow.

Question: Over what element of my life do I need to release some control?
Intuitive Interpretation from Imagery: I can’t control everything all the time. I’m going to have to ease up on controlling every little thing and let things flow instead of trying to fit more and more shit on my plate.
Take Away: The element of my life I need to release some control over is the fact that I’m trying to fit so much on my plate and control every little piece of everything. I don’t need to monitor everything. I don’t need to control every little thing. It’s time to discern which things I can ease up on and that can take care of themselves without my constant monitoring and meddling.

Question: Open / Close
Open: It’s time to reconnect with my passions (Ace of Wands) concerning my artistry and expertise (Three of Pentacles). During the month of January, I had to put my passion for creativity on the back burner because I was struggling under that cloud of self doubt and fear caused by the letter I’d gotten in the fall. Now that we are dealing with that fear and self doubt, it’s time to reconnect with my confidence in my work and the passion I have for what I do.
Close: It’s time to release my negative thoughts concerning that letter and the emotions involved with it. The Queen of Swords makes it clear that I’ve allowed the effects of that letter to go on for too long and cut too deep. I need to let it go. I know that’s going to take time and is not an immediate thing, but I also feel I’m well on the way to that outcome.
