Today’s meditation was just under ten minutes long, and due to having a rib out of place I had a really hard time staying still and settled for the meditation.
The meditation today focused on a full body scan that started at the top of the head and worked its way down to the toes and then back up again. I ended up cutting off the meditation a few minutes early, though, so that I could spend some time on my foam roller and work at trying to get that rib back into some semblance of alignment.
Honestly? Whenever my mind wanders to the traditional interpretations of this card? I get that line in that old Janet Jackson song filtering through my mind. “What have you done for me lately?” I feel that the judgement card is about your soul and moral compass, and that it is them saying that line, yeah? It’s about either “being on track” with what you value and feel is right… or having been lead astray and needing to re-evaluate and come back on track again.
What I see in this card has a bit to do with that, but also with the visit to the bank for today. It’s about the clubs in the pillars on either side, indicating passion and drive. And it’s about the flowers that have grown up over the arch while the supports beneath rot away.
The message for me in today’s card is a reminder to make sure that while I am taking care of the present and planning for the future, that I am also protecting that foundation that I care so deeply about.

Question: What spark is ready for me to ignite with this new moon?
Intuitive Interpretation: It’s time to find a new way of feeling about things.
Take Away: This feels like a continuation of the theme of most of yesterday’s readings, in that it speaks of looking at things in a new perspective and finding a new and better way to see things, especially concerning my emotions and my emotional investments.
Things can’t always be perfectly stable, no matter how much I want them to be. Sometimes you have to let go and start anew, and that’s okay.

Question: What do I need to focus on for self-care this new moon?
Reading Summary: These cards match along the same line as a lot of my readings have over the past few days. They speak of finding the stability I seek by taking a new direction and entertaining new “outside of the box” perspectives and perceptions (Hanged Man).
Take Away: Sometimes in my strive to develop stability and a solid foundation, I forget that life is about the journey and a big part of that journey is adaptability when confronted with change. That is a big challenge right now, and I need to stop digging in my heels (and my roots) so stubbornly and allow the changes that need to take place to happen. Allow them to happen, and focus on adaptation rather than fighting so hard to keep things the same.

Question: How can I move through my intuitive blocks?
Reading Summary: Taking time for introspection (The Hermit) in times when things feel up in the air (Wheel of Fortune) will allow me to avoid becoming defensive (Seven of Wands), which pulls up walls that muffle my intuition.
Take Away: One of my largest and most difficult intuitive blocks is the muffling effect my inner walls cause when they are erected as a part of my defense mechanisms when I am feeling uncertain and vulnerable. The cards indicate if I want to move through that block, it requires introspection and honest reflection, rather than my normal habit of boxing things up and ignoring them as I shove them behind those walls.
