Today’s meditation was skipped due to an overwhelming urge to get out of bed and find my pain pills. GOD FUCK I hurt today. Just sayin’ but damn. So yeah… I didn’t meditate. I did extra physio instead in an effort to ease some of the tension in my muscles.
Today’s draw is the King of Cups, which is traditionally a representation of a projective alpha energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s emotions, relationships, imagination, and intuition.
There’s really no one aspect in particular in the imagery of today’s card that stands out to me today except when I look closer. Then, what stands out is kind blue eyes and a self-assured smirk.
Before meeting Gideon (my very own King of Cups), I had a but of an odd relationships with the court cards in the Cups suit. Perhaps I still do. But what I see here in this card is kindness and confidence. Strength through knowing oneself and knowing others, and being able to see the inner urges and drive that causes people to react as they do. The maturity to understand these things, and react to them in a way that is both strong and yet gentle.
Combined with the Thera-Pets card for today, what I see here is a gentle reminder to be kind and not allow uncertainty to get in the way and drag you down.

Question: What more can I personally do in support of my best self?
Reading Summary: Keep working on your emotional growth (Ace of Gloves atop Eight of Balls). There isn’t an “end goal” or a battle to be won (Five of Caps) and looking at your growth in this manner will only make a mess of things (Justice).
Take Away: I often have a habit of looking at things at a challenge with an end goal. Even things that I shouldn’t…. like my emotional growth and delving into fostering my own emotional intelligence. I’m still at the very beginning of this journey, and yet there are time when I fall into this mentality and have to check myself, remind myself that this is not a destination… it’s a journey.

Your Goal – Seven of Swords – Sneaky shit. I’m not going to spell it out here because it’s just a wee bit on the side of illegal, but suffice to say the contemplation of this sneaky shit has been ongoing.
What’s holding you back? – Three of Wands – Lack of a definitive direction. These goals go against the path I’ve chosen for myself and the moral compass that has directed my life from a young age.
Advice to overcome what’s holding you back – Three of Swords Rx – Don’t do it. Find another way. Nothing good can come from moving forward with “the thing”. Instead, find a better way that is more in line with my path and my moral compass. Turn things around so that the blades slide out instead of sinking in deeper.

I hung curtains today for my peace of mind. It didn’t bother me much with the construction going on next door, until one of the drivers of the dump trucks waved at L through the window. I then realized that shit was not quite as private as I thought it was, and with first construction workers and eventually apartments going up just across the alley from our windows, I feel it’s time. So I hung curtains. It was an ordeal and a huge pain in the ass (and back), but I’m happy with the results.
