Today’s meditation was skipped because I pulled an all-nighter last night, and I knew that if I laid down to meditate I was going to fall asleep and sleep for hours. I had a lot to get done today, and couldn’t afford that sleep. So I skipped instead.
Hints of little tugs on the depression side of things have been whispering quietly in the background lately. Emotional upset has made them louder, and my anxiety is not helping.
The advice here between the affirmation card “Seek the Light” and the Sun card is that I need to take more time to pay attention to the stuff that makes me happy. Seek out those things that lift my spirit and provide hope and happiness in my life, and spend some time enjoying them… and celebrating them.

Reading Summary: Be patient with yourself (Seven of Disks) as you step into the depression that is coming (Three of Swords). Lean into patience rather than moderation (Alchemy Rx), and work at staying conscious of yourself and your thoughts during this time (Princess of Swords).
Take Away: Its coming. You know it’s coming. It’s okay to let it come, just make sure that you stay aware of what’s happening and don’t let yourself sink into it. Your inner dialogue is a fierce son of a bitch, and he won’t help you right now. Lean away from that voice and into the patience that’s recommended here.

I did end up napping today, regardless of skipping the meditation in order to avoid that happening. Apparently I needed at least a little bit of a recharge.
