Today’s meditation was skipped due to orders day. I’ll be back on the horse again tomorrow.
What stands out to me really strongly in today’s card is that her knees are red. This echos back to one of my photo writings I did a few days ago where I mused about how closely people really look at nature. Surely I am not the only one that goes beyond a glance, that slides down to knees on the forest floor for a closer look at a pattern of bark on a fallen log, or lies down in the moss to watch how things respond as shade shifts and sunlight bathes the spot I’m watching for a moment.
Hilda, in this card, looks like she’s gotten down and close with nature. It’s in the redness of her knees and the openness with which she shares with the skunk that’s paused to visit with her. Combined with the affirmation card for today, we’re reminded that it’s important to explore our world with a sense of wonder. To look beyond our self centered perspective and see what lies beyond. Look for the miracle in a blade of grass, the beauty in a flower petal. Seek the wondrous and let it fill your life with a sense of abundance.

The Sacred Grounds Tarot Club Prompt
Questions for July 21st thru 24th
Seven of Cups – A bountiful opportunity to consciously choose your own path. A crossroads with many different routes to choose from stretching out before you like spokes from a wheel.
What should I expect from “What is to Come”?
The Star – Remember that you can only choose one path. Moderation is going to be key in making the right choice for you, as will making sure that you are consulting your guides and your intuition during the decision making process.
What should I know about “What is to Come”?
Seven of Swords – Anyway you go about it, you’re going to lose opportunities that you wish you could keep. Remember that you can only carry so much. Again, you can only choose one path.
What guidance will support me in “What is to Come”?
Strength – You are stronger than you realize. You can make the choice to use your inner strength in a healthy way, instead of allowing your inner strength to be used in your habitual tendency to take on too much.
Advice from your ancestors and guides.
Queen of Pentacles – Grounding will help immensely. Make sure that you’re getting enough time in nature, and that that time is not wasted, but is quality time used to nurture, restore, and ground yourself.

Cosmic_Crow_Tarot’s #FreedomTarotChallenge Prompt
Questions for July 21st and 22nd
Stop worrying so much about others, and focus more on yourself. It’s okay to be selfish when you’re already giving far too much of yourself to others. It might not feel like it’s okay, or that you’re giving as much as you are… but it -is- okay.
How have I taken my freedom for granted?
Scleranthus and Three of Cups
There has been far too much hesitancy in letting go and allowing others to take on their share of the work. There has been far too much “holding yourself apart” instead of drawing those you care about in closer to celebrate with you the joys in life.
In both cases this is about fear of releasing control.
