Today’s meditation was skipped (I think). I’m not entirely sure if I did it today or not, but I’m going to take it for granted that I probably skipped it since that’s the pattern.
Today’s draw is the Judgement card, which is traditionally a representation of looking back on one’s life to reflect on what one has done with it. This time of reflection is about the span of one’s life instead of any one particular incident.
Here in the imagery of this particular card, we see a man who is not reflecting on his past willingly, but is being forced to confront his past, the history he has created for himself, and what this has perpetuated over time.
The combination of this card with the “Smile, Breathe, and Go Slowly” quote on the affirmation card for today is a reminder that life is not a race, and when you rush you miss out on opportunities you would otherwise see coming. Opportunities to have a positive impact on the world, to enjoy life more, and to look back at the end of your life with more satisfaction instead of regrets.

(The Eight of Wands is an accelerant in this reading, feeding into that aggressive energy.)
This is about the upcoming holiday rush that is just around the corner and how what I do now influences how I will approach that season.
Essentially, I’m not getting prep work done and it’s going to cause a need for speed and aggression in order to keep up.
What can I do, shift, or alter to be in the best space for my goals?
Begin shifting your focus (Eclipse) off of the stuff that makes you feel good (The Devil), and onto what will be needed to make the holiday season go more smoothly (Lake).
This isn’t meant to be a fast switch, but it’s time to start the process of looking at what needs to be prepared. Sort of a prep for the upcoming prep period.
