Today’s meditation was a bit spotty, although I did give it a go. It was intended to be a quiet breathing exercise turned into an on-again-off-again nap sort of thing. I gave up after the second doze off and just let myself sleep. Clearly, I needed it.
Today’s draw is the Five of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of conflict over one’s principles, values, or those things that we truly believe in and stand behind. This type of conflict often happens at work when collaborative efforts hit creative differences, but it is not the only area of life in which these types of conflict can arise by any means.
The Five of Wands is all about standing strong and personal perspective clashing with the perspectives of others. Combined with the affirmation card today, what I see in the clash demonstrated in the imagery of today’s card is a reminder about where our sense of self-value comes from.
Today’s cards are a reminder not to let other people’s judgments of you break you down. Stand strong. They have their feelings and perspectives, their values and goals… and you have yours. Judge yourself on your own perspectives and values instead of through the eyes of others.

Take Away: When we are eager to follow our interests and our pursuits, invested and engaged in the things we love or helping others in engaging in their own passions, sometimes it feels like there’s never enough time to get everything done we want to do.
This feeling is an illusion created by our eagerness. To truly be in the moment, to enjoy the moment, it’s important to let go of where we’re going and our expectations. Only then can we truly enjoy being in the moment. So set your ambition and your expectations aside and allow yourself to linger and savor instead.

She can help you find a happier place with your emotions, because you judge your “dirty house” too harshly. (This is seen in the color coordination between the mask in Judgment and the subconscious lobster in The Moon. This connects to the crown that the Queen of Cups wears, indicating that these judgments are all about you and in your head.)
A theme of blue spread throughout. In the cards indicating one’s results (the Queen of Cups and Judgement), the shades of blue lie at the bottom of the card. These blue tones stink slowly from the main focus in The Moon card, to central background in the Queen of Cups, to the bottom of the card in Judgment. This indicates that ensuring she is vaccinated will take away any worries that are left concerning rehiring her at this time.
Take Away: On the 27th I will be fully vaccinated (two weeks will have passed since my second shot). This is the milestone I have been waiting for in order to get a housekeeper back in here on a regular basis. Now I just have to make sure that she is vaccinated as well, and then all is good.

Aside from taking a nap today, I also got the challenge made for next month and a few other things done. It really feels as if it lifted a weight off of my shoulders by getting these things done and catching up on my blog posts.
