Today’s meditation was supposed to be twenty minutes long, but I ended up dozing off in the middle of it and it turned into a nearly three hour nap instead. I’ll give it another go before sleep tonight. I’m pretty sure I got at least ten minutes in, but I can’t be positive. A second practice before bed won’t hurt anything.
What I see in this card is the value of taking time to sit and think. Not just the value of rest and recuperation, but in allowing your mind to roam and restore. The allowance to mull things over and let time slide by as you do so, rather than demanding the answers now and pushing forward, always forward.
I’m always pushing forward, but today I took some time for myself. I relaxed and watched some tv. I meditated, and napped a bit more than I’d planned. I loused about and played games on my phone. Most of these things are not things I allow myself all that often, or at least I don’t openly allow myself to accept them without recriminations. Today, though, I gave myself these small pleasures and did my best to not put myself down for them or the time spent with them.

Question: What is my current relationship with creativity?
Reading Summary: Stagnant (Hermit) due to a waffling on choices (Two of Swords) has left me feeling a bit apathetic and unable to see the good/joy of creativity (Five of Cups), which is swiftly (Eight of Wands) spiraling me down into feelings of scarcity (Five of Pentacles).
Take Away: Usually, my creativity is very free flowing and constantly pushing through me like an inner light. Since my issues with that letter came in, and the self doubt that letter and the fear it created sparked up in me, my creativity has been very much blocked, though. It feels heavy and I’m struggling with it a bit, to be honest.

Question: What do I need to focus on for self-care for this new moon?
Reading Summary: Now is the time to go for it (Knight of Wands) concerning those new ideas I have (Ace of Swords) about my financial portfolio and establishing more solid financial footing (King of Pentacles).
Take Away: There’s some taxes stuff I’ve been putting off and a few ideas I’ve had for directing money in a different direction, but I’ve been putting it off as it hasn’t felt like the right time. From these cards, it sounds like now is the time and I should hop to it.

Question: Wash Away / Invigorate
Wash Away : It’s time to wash away the energies of winter that have been dragging me down and holding me back. These energies didn’t serve me then and are not serving me now, it’s time to allow a fresh clean breeze to blow through and clear them out.
Invigorate : Invigorate the industrious energies of spring. It’s time to start moving forward instead of wallowing in stagnation.
