Sharing Is Caring

Today’s meditation was thwarted twice… er, well, three times.  The first time, it was interrupted by a phone call from Ms B giving us all an update.  The second time, I might’ve kinda dozed off a bit.  Okay so I accidentally napped.  The third time?  It was Ms B calling again.

Tarot Morandi and Thera-Pets Emotional Support Animal CardsToday’s draw is the Queen of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of a receptive alpha energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s intellect, reason, education, aspirations, and communication. This often translates into the theme of someone who is strong and intelligent, has a good deal of advice and help to offer, and is able to listen before opening their mouths, so that the advice they give is informed by what has been said.

When combined with the Thera-Pets card for today, the message here is that it’s in our uniqueness we find the things that we are best at, and the things that we are able to offer others advice and guidance on.

If everyone was the same, we would all have the same strengths and the same weaknesses, the same experiences and the same blind spots.  There would be no opportunity to share with each other the things that make us each unique, and teach each other things that the other may not know or understand.  Instead, because we are all different and unique, we have things to offer each other, help to give… and that is not just unique, but very special.

Question: Why am I not so ready and eager to hop back into my creative endeavors?

Tarot MorandiReading Summary: The Ace of Coins and The Empress both face in the direction of the past, speaking of enjoying the newness of taking better care of myself and enjoying the grounded feeling it provides.

The Queen of Swords faces in the direction of the future, speaking of a harsh taskmaster and a return to going back into my head.

Two against one, I’m pulled towards that grounding and self-care right now Instead of responsibilities and practicality.

Take Away:  Essentially I crave being nicer to myself and I’m struggling with “buckling down” to work when what I really am craving is a bit more personal time and quiet.

Daily Self Kindness

I am currently playing catch-up on posts… and I can’t remember what I might’ve done on this day to be kind to myself.

Self Care Saturday (On a Sunday)

These Saturday readings are (not usually) bearing in on any one thing or event in my life, as the question used is asking for a more general outlook. This is a self care exercise, and is not meant as a predictive reading… although that, too, happens on occasion.

The question is… What do I need to focus for self-care through the week ahead?

EarthTen of Wands and Parrotfish (Authenticity) – Listen to what you truly need. Knowing yourself and touching in on your true self will help you avoid overburdening yourself with too much  as part of the reason this sometimes happens is you take on not just the stuff that resonates with you, but try to take on even more beyond that as well.

AirMagician and Goat (Grounded) – You have all that you need to keep yourself from falling to the wayside or letting your negative inner dialogue take over.  You have what you need to pursue your ideas and aspirations unhindered this week…. IF you remember to stay grounded and on track. Do what needs done to make sure you don’t lose your footing.

WaterHanged Man atop King of Wands, Owl (Intuition) – Before you try and reign things in, make sure you’re allowing for a different perspective than your immediate reaction.  That reaction is not intuition, but rather a defense mechanism that is getting in the way of your growth.

FireThe World and Wombat (Exploration) – If you want to dive into new ideas, this week is the time time to do a little research and prepare to take that leap. Things are opening up and you have some room to explore and branch out, or start anew in some areas if that’s what you’re into doing.  Start gathering information so you’ll be prepared.

WaningThe Forest Path atop Flickering Candle – The time for letting the wind cast you as it may is at an end this week.  Whims and recreation, fun times and opportunity to do whatever you wish with your time is coming to a close as you buckle back down and get back to work.

WaxingFamily Quiet Time atop Comfort – Although getting back to work is all well and good, after all responsibility is a big part of this week’s theme, so too will be the connection that you have with those nearest and dearest to you.  Make sure to make some time and space to foster those relationships.

Take Away – Don’t allow clutter in your life, your mind, or your responsibilities to the point that you lose track of yourself or the truth of who you are and what you want. Getting back to work is not something that you’re enthusiastic about but you  just need to find a balance between work and self care that will actually work for you.  Instead of falling back into the same pattern as the last time, look for a new method that will fit better.
