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

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

Question: New Moon and Solar Eclipse – What’s hidden? What’s come to front? Why?
Hidden – The 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 Front – The 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.

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