Today’s meditation was done in three parts. I had a handful of client readings today and had to meditate (and eat) in between them as a sort of “palate cleanser” because they were quite entailed.
Today’s draw is the Queen of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of a receptive alpha energy, personality, or person in the areas of one’s drive, passions, willpower, determination, and motivations.
Although the business is my creation and often the driving force behind my motivation, there are times when order days come around that I just don’t feel like it. That lack of motivation is like the serpent whispering in the Queen’s ear in the imagery of today’s card.
I hear that whisper today. And, like any time we aren’t looking forward to something, it creates the “dragging your feet mentality”. Everything seems bigger than it is, and more effort than it’s worth. This can happen even with the things we are most passionate about at times.
The Thera-Pets card is a reminder that even though we may feel unenthusiastic about it, responsibilities still need to be dealt with and aren’t as big or bad as we feel they are in the moment. And that once you get them done, you can then look back and see just how much our lack of enthusiasm has blown them out of proportion.

Amour and Nine of Cups – More time with Gideon. More time enjoying the world around you. More time steeped in gratitude, and mindful of the pleasure and enjoyment you reap from the people you love and the world.
What projects and energies are you taking with you into Autumn?
Projects – Solidarité and Temperance – Over the past few years, you have been working to learn to lean on others more, and delegate instead if taking on everything all on your own. This effort at moderating your energy burn by asking and allowing others to help you will continue to be an important theme through the autumn months.
Energies – Équilibre and Four of Pentacles – You need to focus on keeping your energy balanced and well grounded. With a solid foundation, that balance will be far easier to manage.
These next handful of weeks will be your last chance to spend some regular quality time in nature, and the temperatures are conducive to you getting out there and savoring as much of that time as you can. In doing so, you don’t just ground yourself, but connect with energies beyond yourself, allowing your intuition and inner spirit to flourish.
What is something new you should try?
Honnêteté and Justice – When you don’t want to deal with something, you often just ignore it rather than opening your mouth and dealing with it. Although this method often works fine for you in general, don’t forget that sometimes you need to speak up and say your piece instead of remaining quiet.

Question: How can I strengthen my intuition?
Reading Summary: First, you need to remain steadfast in working through your current onset of depression (Ace of Pentacles and Three of Swords Rx). Then return to your emotional growth, seeking encouragement and guidance from those with more experience in this area (Six of Wands atop Queen of Cups).
Take Away: I feel like I’m getting a handle on the depression that was starting to creep in. I think that the shift of dosage in my meds definitely has helped in heading it off, but I know I still have a bit of work to do here. I also know that the depression muffles my intuition.
The cards here point out that as I grow emotionally, my intuition is along for the ride and growing as well. I need to continue on this journey, leaning on those with more understanding of what I’m learning and seeking their input not just in what I can do better or change, but also in pointing out what I’m doing right.

I had L come home a bit early today to help me out in getting things done. I also had her make two of the meals for today, which is also a huge help. I get tired of cooking so much and was spoiled by Z being here for so long.
