Right, Wrong, Ethics, and Wiggle Room

Today’s meditation was just over ten minutes long, and was the second installment of the Foundations III series on the Balance app.

Today’s meditation focused on one of my favorite types of meditation; the body scan or yoga nidra method.

The Wandering Star Tarot and Thera-Pets Emotional Support Animal CardsToday’s draw is the Justice card, which is traditionally a representation of the cause-and-effect aspects of balance, and can also represent the law and judicial system.

I don’t know about anyone else, but sometimes I have a somewhat cavalier few of social norms and… even laws. It isn’t that I don’t know what the expectations are, it’s that I disagree with them.  This has never resulted in legal jeopardy, but it can cause social tensions from time to time.

The thing is?  Even though I don’t always agree with how things are expected to be by society, I have my own ethics, my own sense of right and wrong, and a very highly tuned moral compass.

At these times, I often worry that my views will cause adverse reactions and repercussions. And, admittedly, sometimes they do.  Today’s cards are a reminder to look at your own moral compass, your own ethics, and your own sense of right and wrong. How are they working for you?  Are there tweaks that need to be made or are you happy with how things are going?

Questions for September 19th thru 21st

Copper Rabbit Oracle and Soulful TarotWhere or in what way shouldn’t I be too hard on myself?
Woodsman and Ten of Wands

You can’t help everyone, as you can only take on so much. Don’t be hard on yourself because you have to pick and choose what you decide to tackle and what you decide to leave behind. We all have to do it, and you already give more of yourself than you realize.

Something that could benefit from a little more focus.
Test and Nine of Cups

Keep yourself focused on “the good stuff”. This includes working on keeping a positive outlook, as well as taking time to really appreciate all that you have.

A personal strength that can help/support me right now.
Dark Forest and Knight of Cups

The deep forest and liminal spaces there are waiting for you. Get your ass outside and draw upon the energy, balance, and grounding you need from those sources that you connect to so well.


#DiscordTarotholicsSep2021 Challenge Prompt
: Do Spread 1
Question: How can I best navigate the transition from my current mindset and energies into those of the holiday rush to come?

The Wandering Star TarotReading Summary: Daylight connects the Strength and Eight of Pentacles together, speaking of what is already revealed through previous experiences.

Your experience in having done this transition many times in the past (Eight of Pentacles) has provided you with the knowledge, strength, and innate know-how to make it through it again this year (Strength).

Dark borders surrounding the imagery connect the Strength card to The Fool, speaking of the secret ingredient yet to be added.

To transition in a healthier manner (Strength), you need to instill a mindset of adventure into the process (The Fool).

Take Away: I’ve received this answer before for similar questions based around enjoying the holiday rush more.  The key is to work at making the holiday rush feel like an adventure instead of a trial and a chore.  It’s only if I am able to instill a bit of fun and adventure into the process that I’ll be able to find joy in the chaos of the busy season to come.

Well, impromptu nap aside, I also managed to have both my smoothie and my tea, as well as all my vitamins today. First time in a while.

One thought on “Right, Wrong, Ethics, and Wiggle Room

  1. I think you have absolutely nothing to worry about as far as ethics and your moral compass, babe. You are the most morally true person I know. That compass is part of the reason I fell in love with you to begin with. You are just so….GOOD at the very core of you. So true and genuine.

    I’ve been trying to get you out in the woods for weeks now…DO IT dammit
