Today’s meditation was delayed until tonight when I go to bed because today has been quite busy and just didn’t have the time (or want to take time from other things, if I’m honest) to settle in and do the meditation earlier in the day. Morning meditation is definitely more beneficial for me, though, on a whole.
I still don’t see that in this card, to be honest. But that seems to be the theme of this deck as a whole that my intuitive hits upon the imagery are of an entirely different vein than traditional meanings, or even the meanings in the book that came with the deck.
What I see in the imagery of this card today has to do with the defensive stance of the woman in the card, and the radiant power behind her. That power feels like it is empowering her and providing strength.
What I see here is that I need some time outside, and… that’s fitting since that’s exactly what went on today. Not around people…. okay so mostly not around people. I took my sister and Z to the woods for a walk and we stopped over at the wetlands to enjoy some sun as well. There were no other people around, and it was a nice (and needed) outing that seems to have given not just our bodies but our souls a refreshing breath of fresh air.
DECK USED: CIRCLE OF LIFE TAROT
#TarotForGrowthMarch Challenge Prompt
Question: What am I being invited to reflect upon this spring?
Reading Summary: How I do things and how I can do them differently (l’Appeso) and better (La Giustizia) in order to get more out of life (Four of Cups) and foster a better outcome (La Torre Rx).
Take Away: At the beginning of the year, I wanted to start restructuring how I did things with my business, but it had to be put off because of that fog of fear created as the reactions to last fall’s letter caught up with me. Now, I am essentially being forced into slowing down and the cards are indicating that this situation is the prime opportunity I need to begin looking at making some changes to better balance not just my business, but my home life as well. It’s time to start looking at how I can do things differently moving forward, and start considering what small changes I can start making to move toward that vision.

#DiscordTarotholicsMar2020 Challenge Prompt
Question: What is my greatest weakness?
Intuitive Interpretation: Letting my thoughts run away with me until I’m so wrapped up in them and so worked up by them that I’m stuck in a state of catastrophizing.
Take Away: So I readily admit this is absolutely something that I do… and yet even though I am aware I do it and don’t particularly find it at all wise or useful? I still somehow manage to do it anyway. I think it might be a part of the cycle of how I motivate myself to do shit I don’t really want to do… but turned into an avenue that becomes a detriment rather than useful.

#ConnectWithYourDeckChallenge by E Roebuck-Jones
Question: Draw a card and record the feelings you experience.
She is protected and can therefore let go and be free. She is sensual, and he is rapt. He watches on, holding flowers that are just for her… even if the truth is she handed them to him to hold for her rather than them being a gift. The true gift here is his protection
The dynamic between the cards feels like a romance. A secret love not acted upon by either party due to station, or due to the sweet taste of drawing out the temptation into a seduction all its own.
