Choices Without Bias

Today’s meditation was skipped, as it’s an orders day.

Metamyth Tarot and Less Anxiety Affirmation CardsToday’s draw is the Lovers card, which is traditionally a representation of not just love, romance, and marriage as it is often interpreted by many, but also about choices and making positive choices that are good for you.

Today I want to start with the affirmation card, though, as the topic dealt with on the card is actually something that a lot of people struggle with when first learning to read the tarot or other types of divination, especially when reading for self.

It can be hard to be objective and unbiased, especially when it pertains to something that is important to you or that you have a strong opinion on.

The Lovers card combined with this affirmation card is a reminder that sometimes the only way you can find a healthy option for yourself is by separating yourself from the situation and looking at it from the outside. Sometimes only with an unbiased vantage point can you find clarity.

Question: What good habits do I have?

Fauna Inspiration CardsHeron (Self-Reliance) – Independence and inner strength allows me to not just live the live that I want to live how I want to live it, but gives the opportunity for me to touch other’s lives and teach them to do the same.

Squirrel (Necessity) – I am very good at preparing “for the hard times” and making sure that I have what I need when I need it. And when I don’t have what I need, I’m resourceful enough to find a way.

Pelican (Optimism) – I always say that I’m a pessimistic person, and that I’m always fighting to put more optimism into my life to counteract that.  But, there are certain circumstances where my optimism does continue to shine. Creativity. Security building, etc. In these areas, confidence and optimism blend and thrive.

: About abandonment…
Question: Where in my life am I feeling abandoned?

MetaMyth TarotReading Summary: In my ability (Strength) to move in to something new (Ace of Pentacles) and let go of the burdensome habits of the past (Ten of Wands).

Take Away: I am feeling abandoned by my own strength. Not in all ways, of course. But at this moment I’m struggling a bit on moving forward on this healthier path I’ve chosen.

I feel like I should be able to let go more easily and move forward into this new path that I’m working to tread without the struggle that I am going through right now.

I want to be able to transition more easily, to let go of my  unhealthy habits more easily, and yet I struggle with the letting go side of things.


The Sacred Grounds Tarot Club Prompt
: New Moon and Solar Eclipse – What’s hidden? What’s come to front? Why?

Family TarotHiddenThe Emperor – Having all the control. You’ve always had a very dominant streak when it comes to being with others, but yet in the thirteen years with Gideon, this dominant streak has become less and less demanding of air time.

Come To FrontThe Lovers – Communion with Gideon. Letting go and allowing him to suggest choices that are healthy for you. Allowing his guidance to help you and his strength to support you. As you sink more into that softer, more vulnerable side of your nature that he brings to the surface, and begin to not just settle and become comfortable there, a balance is being created.

Why?The Sun atop Knight of Coins – Because right now this is what you want and what is making you happy. You’re comfortable with expressing what you need and what you really enjoy. Your connection with Gideon allows you to have what you need when you need it and enjoy it to the fullest. Right now you need to be in a small place and not in charge, and he’s able to give that to you with the loving support you need.


Daily Self Kindness

Even though it’s an orders day, I allowed myself to take a nap.  I feel much better for having done it too.

Morning Bonus Read – Clarity

Bonds Across Time: An Inuyasha Tarot - Clarity Tarot Reading

[NOTATION: I adjusted the last two questions of this spread for my own needs.]

1. Biggest Distraction

Ace of Arrows – Too much started and not finished. Too many new ideas dancing around in your head wanting your  attention, and not enough time to start… let alone finish them all. Writing them down helps, but it’s not resolving that distraction entirely.

2. Where To Focus Instead

Queen of Cups – Your emotional growth and the needs you have for emotional nurturing. There is also an element here in the imagery of the mug that is referencing the need to pick one thing at a time to go after instead of multiple things at once.

3. Past Experience to Let Go

Wheel of Fortune – The unknown coming up and biting you on the ass by surprise.  The unexpected happens and is a part of life.  You can’t let the uncertainty of that knowledge and those experiences hold you back.

4. Useful Past Experience

Five of Cups – Same as above (the figure in this card is looking over at the Wheel of Fortune). You need to look at these past experiences and take value in them, instead of ignoring them and the issues they have wrought for you.

5. What to Cultivate

Six of Arrows – That new healthier path you have been working towards. In order for this new path to work, you have to let go of the old habits that have made you feel so secure for so long. Leaving them behind isn’t easy, but until you do, you won’t be able to move forward.

6. Next Step

Page of Jewels – Little steps. Accept the time it will take to learn and progress at building these new habits and skills. Take the time needed to decide and accept that what needs to be left behind is truly okay to let go of, and what you want to bring with you is worth carrying forward.  There’s no rush.

7. Advice From My Guides

Seven of Swords – Don’t be impulsive.


Solar Eclipse in Gemini – June 2021

There was a Solar Eclipse this morning!  In celebration of that upcoming event, I decided to do a reading geared towards the eclipse and the energies surrounding it. This spread is brought to you by Ethony‘s Tarot By the Moon series.

Solar Eclipse in Gemini Reading - Love and Magic Oracle

1. What aspect of myself needs to be realigned?

Top Left – It’s okay to put things on the back burner when you’re not ready.  It’s okay to put them on the back burner for a long ass time, if that’s what you need.  Stop beating yourself up for setting these things aside.  Stop shaming yourself and telling yourself over and over “I’ll pick this back up next week” or “I should pick this back up soon”.  Instead, allow that time of rest and don’t worry about it.  You will pick it back up when you’re ready and the time is right, there’s nothing to be ashamed about.

2. How can I let go of unhealthy expectations of myself?

Bottom Left – You don’t have to know every step of your path and exactly where you’re going every step of the way.  The path you walk isn’t set in stone, it forms before you with every step you take.  You don’t have to plan.  Just take steps forward… and you will find your way just fine.

3. How can I let go of unhealthy expectations of others?

Top Right – Make sure that you’re listening to both your intuition and the guidance from your guides when it comes to what you offer to others and what expectations you allow to dictate your actions and your life.  You aren’t a people pleaser, but you still fall into occasional pressures sometimes when you’re feeling vulnerable.  Make sure that those pressures are aren’t to your detriment, and when your intuition and/or guides say no?  Then don’t do it.

4. What part of my life could be healed during this time?

Bottom Right – You have an opportunity right now to embrace joy without guilt, and find a path that allows you to be more present in the here and now. Nurture yourself with abandon and enjoy instead of finding excuses to stay miserable or hang back from the growth awaiting you.
