There was no meditation today because yet again the guys across the street were making a hell of a racket. It wasn’t just the machinery, which I could probably have found a way to ignore, but rather… it was the yelling. I swear to fuck they all talk at full volume. Maybe they all have earplugs in their ears and have to shout just to be heard by each other. I wonder if they realize that the entire condo complex across the alley from them can hear every word they say as well.
Today’s draw is the Three of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of taking the first steps in the direction you want to go after the planning of the Two of Wands has been accomplished. This particular “travel card” in the tarot has to do with going after what sparks your interest, and stirs up your innovation and inspiration.
What stands out to me the strongest in the imagery of this card is the fact that the cat looks kind of like a slug in this card. If it weren’t for the ears… it would kind of look like a snail carrying its shell on its back, yeah? Okay, so at least that’s what it looks like to me.
The significance of seeing a snail in this imagery has to do with speed and the fact that sometimes? Forward movement is enough. This is reinforced in the Thera-Pets card for today, and the two cards together are a reminder that as long as you are heading in the direction you want to go? It’s okay to not be moving at full speed ahead. Taking your time is okay.

Question: In what area of my life can I use a positive (energy) boost right now?
Reading Summary: I need to work on worrying less (Nine of Swords) and being more open (Page of Cups) to the love and camaraderie (Three of Cups) found in my home these days (Four of Wands).
Take Away: Okay so… it’s true that I have a really odd sense of humor. There’s a lot of jokes and humor that I just don’t understand at all, and there’s a lot of things I find amusing that others find not to be amusing at all. This factor doesn’t help in this situation, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be more open to allowing lighthearted warmth in that L and Z have to offer, instead of ignoring it for the stresses and worries going on in my head.

#DiscordTarotolicsMar2021 Challenge Prompt
Question: What would be a better way to deal with my anxieties that will allow my feet to stay on the ground?
Reading Summary: All the tricks and tools in the world (The Magician), clever ideas, and experience under your belt (Queen of Swords) is not going to get you outside and in nature like you need (The Empress). Just do it (Two of Pentacles) and you will feel better for it (Five of Pentacles Rx)
Side Note: This deck has a somewhat oddly unique way of speaking that takes a bit of getting used to. I noticed this as well with the other edition of the Cat-Rot Tarot.
Take Away: In order to deal with my anxieties in a better and more grounded manner I need to make sure I’m literally getting out in nature and grounding. In doing this, I am able to feel more balanced and less as if I’m fighting a loosing battle all the time. All of my “clever” excuses and sneaky ways of putting this grounding and connection to nature off are doing me absolutely no good at all.

Although I was tired, I took some time after play with Gideon just to sit with him quietly and soak in some one on one time. The drop is toying with me and I needed it.
