Today’s meditation has yet again been non-existent. I just didn’t sleep well last night and lying down to do it was a bad idea considering everything I needed to get home today. Clearly that was the best choice, as when I took a “short nap” after getting home? I overslept by a whole two hours. I’ll try to meditate before sleep tonight when I crawl into bed, but I really need to get back on top of doing this first thing in the morning.
Today’s draw is the Nine of Trees. I have a hard time remembering the suits in this deck, but the elemental symbol indicates that this is the fire suit (wands). That said, I did my read off of the card before my brain kicked in to work that out.
What I see in today’s card is a build off of yesterday’s message about keeping i mind the long term view and goals and not getting too caught up “in the moment”. When I see that tree standing strong and tall on the cliff, it also makes me think of taking the long view.
It’s about the strength that is built over time and perseverance. Struggles and strain happens, but by working through them you build strength. Stress is not necessarily good for you… neither are car accidents, violent attacks, etc. BUT, they do benefit you in building upon your strength and giving you a chance to grow and develop from these hardships. That is true for communities as well.

Question: How can I improve my relationship with the present?
Reading Summary: Don’t allow moments of self doubt and lack of faith (The Star Rx) cause so much stress and strain (Nine of Wands) that I retreat into myself (Hermit) or you will end up feeling overwhelmed and burnt out (Seven of Wands Rx).
Side Note: I don’t usually read reversals, but with this deck… it just felt right. So I left them in. It’s something about how the imagery changed in the upside-down position.
Take Away: The pattern mentioned in the cards is something that is very common for me and I need to watch out for it and make sure I don’t end up tripping over that pitfall.

Question: What in my life makes me feel the most thankful at this time?
Reading Summary: The opportunities presented to me to improve my way of life (Knight of Coins), and the help of my friends to assist me in that and uplift me (Three of Cups) when I am feeling overtaken and overwhelmed (Five of Wands).
Take Away: I really do have an amazing support system of people who care about and love me to help me in times of need, whether those times are when I am pushing towards my goals, or in times when I am feeling things have gotten out of control.

Question: Where can I be more creative? / Where am I being deluded?
Where can I be more creative? : I need to remember what the shrink said when I went to visit her. Maybe now isn’t the best time to restructure how I am doing the business. With the fear thing and feeling overwhelmed, adding that other aspect and smothering out my creative spark is probably not the best course of action.
Where am I being deluded? : This pretty much carries over from the previous card. I’ve taken off a bigger bite than I’m able to chew and I need to step back and look at taking smaller steps… smaller bites… and not expecting everything to be done immediately. Allow myself a longer time-frame for getting things done.
