Today’s meditation was non-existent. I had plans to re-do my meditation before sleep, as my efforts in the morning were an epic fail… but then I fell asleep on the phone while listening to my mother voicing her many complaints concerning myself and life in general… and, it didn’t get done.
Today’s draw is Japanese Santa…. no sorry, just kidding. Today’s draw is the Magician card, which is traditionally a representation of resourcefulness and having the tools you need to manifest… whatever needs manifesting.
What really stands out to me in this card is the rose vines that surround the figure. They are lush and happy and in full growth. This card is a reminder that I need to get out into my balcony garden and do some TLC with my plants out there, preparing them for spring and giving them the little encouragements they need at this time of year to start waking up so that they will sprout and flourish.

Question: What can I do to encourage kindness toward myself?
Reading Summary: Walk softly and carry a big stick (The Star atop Queen of Wands)… and a reiteration of sorts because… it’s okay to go after what you want (Knight of Wands) but make sure you’re taking care to keep boundaries and defenses in place when doing so (Nine of Wands).
Take Away: Now is a great time to focus on my passions, and in doing so I will feel better and thus be better… and nicer… to myself. The cards are simply reminding me that I need to be careful not to get carried away and end up sliding down another slippery slope into overwhelm, which is not good for me at all. Get back on that horse… but take your time.

Question: What makes me unique?
Reading Summary: My ability to connect with others (Knight of Cups) and lift them (Seven of Wands) up as I guide them towards a better place (Four of Wands).
Take Away: Aw… okay so that was really nice to hear and I hope it’s true. I don’t really usually see myself as particularly adept socially, but I always hope that when I interact with others that it benefits them in some way, and I love helping people in finding their path… whether that be a new perspective or spiritual path, or in a variety of different life situations.

Question: How can spirit help me with my intuition?
Reading Summary: By giving me the strength and sense of authority (Emperor) to needed in order to break through my self-deceptions (Seven of Swords) and thus better go after what I really want (Knight of Wands).
Take Away: The cards indicate that spirit’s job in assisting my intuition is primarily in fact-checking. Not facts of the brain, but rather ensuring that my intuition is not being deceived or re-routed and thus steering me off track.
