Today’s meditation was skipped because the housekeeper came early, and after she left I blacked out due to low blood sugar and ended up in the hospital. Crap ass day, obviously.
I got a real kick out of this card today, as what really stood out to me was the look on the bird’s face. The man below blows a dart and hits the bird, and the bird looks down at him with a very clear “You fucker!!” expression in return. It cracked me up.
I feel like my perception of this card, combined with the Thera-Pets card has more to do with taking the easy way out instead of taking your time. The hunter kills the bird because it’s the easy meal. Maybe if he’d had some patience, something better would have come along. He feels entitled to take the birds life, just as the bird feels entitled to living its life freely.
The message here is about taking the first thing that comes along… or waiting for something more suited. There are times, like when searching for a job or considering new opportunities, that it can be tempting to snatch up the first thing that comes along. But that’s not always the best choice, even if it feels like you are getting somewhere faster by taking it. Instead, these cards remind us to pause and consider if what we’re being offered really connects with what we truly feel is right and good, and with what we want out of life. If the offer does not align with these things, sometimes it is better to pass on an opportunity, even if it means things move a bit slower than you want them to while you find the options that are truly right for you.

Questions for September 13th thru 15th
Setting clearer boundaries and expectations at home, so that there is less conflict and butting of heads. When boundaries aren’t clearly defined and people don’t know what you want from them, it causes unnecessary conflict that can be easily avoided.
Is there room for (more) personal growth this year in any area?
Gift and King of Wands
Yes. It’s time to turn your attention to your goals and passions. You need to begin working at looking at the busy time to come as a blessing and a gift, instead of a dreaded trial to be suffered through.
Envision where you want to be or what you want to have achieved by the end of 2021 and draw a card.
Let Go and The Devil
[Goal to Achieve: By the end of 2021 I would like to be closer to paying off my line of credit. Potentially a good deal closer than I am now. It is unrealistic it will be paid off, but I want to get things moving in that direction using the added income that the holiday season brings in.]
To achieve this goal, you are going to have to ease up on your addictions, and let go of your obsessions. You can’t both spend money on whatever you want and pay off the line of credit.
DECK USED: ORACLE OF ECHOES AND THE PULP OF TAROT
Happy – Vivid Dreams and Nine of Air – When my medication is working well and keeping both my depress and anxiety in check.
Note: Vivid Dreams is a direct connection to the extremely vivid dreams that I have that are caused by my medication when I shift from an old bottle to a fresh one.
Calm – Lovers and Queen of Earth – Gideon and the calming energy that he provides for me when I am worked up. He is my comfort and my anchor, a touchstone for my soul and provides me a counterbalance for when I am struggling.

I refused to stay overnight at the hospital. They wanted to keep me for observation, but I felt extremely uncomfortable with all the covid shit going on and the fact that I was taking up a bed that someone else could be desperately in need of. I felt much better coming home and allowing L to help me in keeping things well in hand during the 24 hours following the visit.
