Today’s meditation was skipped because nobody would f’ing leave me alone… including the cat. I mean, seriously.
Today’s draw is the Seven of Cups, which is traditionally a representation of choices. Specifically, too many choices. Sometimes when we are confronted with too many choices, it is a boon as it means we can find the one that’s just right for us… and sometimes it’s a curse, and we become overwhelmed.
In the image on this card, the variety of choices open to the fox hang from the bows of a laurel, and all of them look appealing in their own way.
That is where the advice from the Flower Fortune card for today comes in. In the phrase “Whatever your goal in life is, embrace it, visualize it, and it will be yours.”
Sometimes it’s really hard to figure out what path you want to be on. Sometimes? That difficulty in sorting all that out can end up causing unneeded hurdles and roadblocks to getting anywhere at all.
The reminder here is that it’s okay to step back and take some time to decide on what you want, just don’t use it as an avoidance. Everyone needs to figure this out eventually, or we reach the end of our lives feeling like we’ve been a waste of space our entire lives because we never managed to fill our life but anything but waiting and avoidance.
Use that time to consider your choices. Use it to explore and discover new things. Use it to fill your life with the things you enjoy. And when you do this? You will naturally find that path that’s right for you without all the stress of having to “pick it out” of a line up.

#DiscordTarotolicsMay2021 Challenge Prompt
Question: What do you need to focus on for self-care for this new moon?
Six of Pentacles – Make sure that you are claiming only what you need for yourself. This is especially true when it comes to food for you. You have a habit of getting territorial over food (especially leftovers), which is understandable considering how much food you need to consume in a day to keep from dropping weight. At the same time? Don’t be the prison inmate out on parole who hovers over their plate and growls at anyone who gets close. There is always more food. Relax. It’s not going to disappear.
King of Wands – Own your passions and principles. This is not something you usually struggle with, but sometimes outside comments can cause a moment or two of self-doubt or insecurity to wriggle in now and then. It’s possible you could end up susceptible to this kind of external input this week, so make sure you stand strong and proud concerning your passions as well as your principles. Own them as your own and fuck’em if they (whoever “might be”) doesn’t like it.
Queen of Cups – Allow yourself to share more freely with your emotional support system. It’s okay to feel vulnerable with those people in your life that are there to support you and help you sort things out. This journey of emotional growth you’re on is confusing. Make sure that you’re reaching out to those that can help you sort out your feelings when you need to.

Questions for May 10th through 12th
Always needing to make the right choice. This was a topic that was visited in one of my readings yesterday as well. It’s not so much about failure as it is about fucking up. And, when I fuck up, then being harsh with myself as a result instead of treating it as the growing pains that I would view failure as. It’s okay to fuck up sometimes. I don’t need to hold onto those moments and allow my inner narrative to lay on abuse as a result.
Why is this attachment/need bad for me?
King of Cups, Two of Pentacles, Three of Wands
You can’t grow and mature emotionally without making wrong choices and learning how to re-balance and reorient yourself in the aftermath. This is true when you experience failure and is something I roll with and adapt to easily in those moments. But it’s also true when you just plain fuck up and do something wrong or immature. It happens to everyone and it’s how we learn and grow into better selves. It shouldn’t be something you berate yourself for.
By letting go of this attachment I allow myself to…
Two of Cups atop Five of Swords Rx
By letting go of this attachment I allow myself to surrender to what comes and grow together instead of alone. Lessons are very rarely learned alone, even when you alone are the origin of the “fuck up” that teaches the lesson. Learning together can be a bonding experience, so don’t shut others out due to embarrassment or shame. By welcoming them in, everyone grows and learns together, and the bonds between those involved grow stronger as a result.

I not only took a nap today, but I got a good long amount of time playing with Gideon this evening as well. I also gave myself a bit of piece of mind this evening and put in my earbuds (in both ears) so that I could completely block out the noise of everything going on in the apartment and just be in my own world for a bit.
