Today’s meditation was skipped again today. Not intentionally, but I once again fell asleep in the middle of it.
Today’s draw is the Hierophant, which is traditionally a representation of long standing traditions and those that teach them to others, as well as themes to do with spiritual wisdom and religious beliefs.
For me, the Hierophant is often about teaching, especially in relation to helping others find their unique spiritual path, or helping them in finding their direction and stride upon that path.
One of the things that I have discovered in my own experiences in this area is that it’s often through our connection to something bigger than ourselves that inspiration and peace are found in our lives.
This isn’t true for everyone, but with most of those that I have helped in finding their personal path, that seems to have been universally true. It’s not about “finding God” or a specific deity, but rather about finding what clicks with them. What beliefs about life and death and how things work that resonate most strongly for them, and realizing that it’s okay to pursue that path for themselves.
Today’s cards are a reminder that finding what works for -you- is important. Tradition and conformity cannot outweigh the fact that we are all unique… and so are our souls and the path our souls connect with.

Philosophical Question: What is true beauty?
Take Away: Interesting. I was expecting this answer to be something about aesthetics, and yet that’s not what came up at all.
The answer here in these cards is that true beauty is about living well and helping others to do the same. It’s about cherishing the past, appreciating our accomplishments in the present, as well as valuing our connections to others.

Don’t let changes taking place in your life (Death) take away your sense of emotional satiation and security (Nine of Cups Rx). Think logically with a sense of confidence and strategy (King of Swords) about what’s happening, instead of allowing your emotions runaway with themselves to a bad place.
What am I guided to work on / towards during this current season?
Finding solid footing in the direction you want to go in (King of Wands) so that you can lead others down that path with confidence and the preparation associated with knowing where you’re going and how you’re going to get there (The Magician).
