Today’s meditation was just over fourteen minutes and was a repeat of yesterday’s meditation. I enjoyed it enough that I wanted to repeat it, and I felt the need to meditate today. Instead of subversively punishing myself by pushing away that feeling, I gave myself what I was craving.
Today’s draw is the Knave (Page) of Pentacles, which is traditionally a representation of a receptive omega energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s finances, resources, home life, health, manifestations, and the physical world. This often translates into learning new skills that can be used to create or manifest ideas into reality.
Like all the pages, the Page of Pentacles is filled with curiosity, and is open and ready to learn and explore. That pairs amazingly with the imagery on the back of today’s affirmation card, which depicts an octopus. The octopus is one of the most intelligent and curious of our worlds known sea creatures.
The thing is? The more curious you are? The more intelligent you have potential to become. Through every moment of curiosity a learnable moment is born. This is why children ask so many questions. They’re learning. It is through our curiosity that we (all of us) discover the world around us and all the wondrous things it has to offer, and in the combination of the affirmation card for today and the Knave of Pentacles, we see an encouragement to stay curious and eager, interested and engaged.

CoffeexTarot’s Who’s Your Spirit Guides? Prompt
Questions for August 1st thru 5th
This particular guide is all about personal strength in the things that matter to me personally, as well as helping me to navigate the world as I move along my path. Manipulation and persuasion through their messages to help keep me on track, and out of more trouble than I can handle. Their influence is positive and uplifting, but not overtly so.
What type of guide(s) are you?
King of Wands / Dragonfly
Strong willed and determined. Authoritative, but able to relate to the creative drive I harbor inside. Focused on changes, and ensuring that I weather those changes well.
What is your personality?
Alchemy / Sunflower
Patient. Adaptive. Focused on turning negatives into positives. Spiritual interconnectedness. It’s not about them, but about me. They’re here for a purpose.
What is your connection to me?
The Wheel / Clockworks
I was “picked up” (much like a stray pup) for the purpose of being guided through the ups and downs of life. They see themselves as the protector of my balance as life shifts like sand beneath my feet.
Message you have for me?
Five of Swords atop Two of Disks
“With each failure and defeat, make sure you are looking forward to adapt instead of allowing these times to beat you down and send your world out of balance.”
DECK USED: JOUNEY OF THE SACRED BEE TAROT
Reading Summary: Nurturing yourself and others (The Empress) will lead to closer/tighter bonds between you and others (Three of Cups), leading to a greater strength (Strength) for what is to come throughout the harvest season (wheat in Empress’ arms).
Take Away: Strength, especially the quiet strength that lies beneath the surface, comes in many shapes and forms. It isn’t always just about us, but sometimes is bolstered and supported by others.
As I prepare for the harvests coming through the month a head, I need to keep in mind just how much benefit… just how much strength I get from those around me.
Don’t take this for granted, but instead appreciate it and return it with your own brand of support and nurturing as a way of showing gratitude for all that they offer you.

It set me back in my work, but I let myself take a nap today even though it was an orders day. Oddly? I managed just a short nap instead of my body’s normal demand for at least two hours, but it was enough to help me keep going and finish up what I needed to get done today.
