Defining Perfection

Today’s meditation was skipped… sort of.  I did a bit of a meditation out in the woods when I was on my hike, but it wasn’t an actual -meditation- but more of a quiet pause.

Korean Tarot and Thera-Pets Emotional Support Animal CardsToday’s draw is the White Porcelain Moon Jar 6. This deck is titled as a tarot, but is actually an oracle deck. For this reason, there is no traditional meaning to note here today.

In this imagery, we see the hard work and focus on building expertise that is often associated with the Eight of Pentacles, combined with a hint of the need to please others that are watching on that is typically associated with the Six of Wands.

Combined with the Thera-Pets card for today, what I see as the message in these cards is that nothing is perfect and no one is perfect. When we strive for perfection, it’s important to remember that the definition of perfect is fluid and subjective. It is defined by each of us, and thus to achieve perfection, it’s not working harder and pushing harder that earns us our goal… but adjusting our perspective and acceptance about what “perfection” actually means in the first place.


BekahMurphysMagic’s #IntuitiveHealingTarotChallenge Prompt
Questions for September 21st thru 23rd

Mystical Creatures Oracle and Aquarian TarotWhat challenges do I face in connecting with my intuition?

Ghoul and Eight of Pentacles – You have spent so much time in your past focusing elsewhere and allowing your intuition to run (and lead) in the background, that it can be difficult to draw it forward into the light and into sharp focus now. Although it is highly honed, it’s an element you don’t have a lot of control over other than to listen and follow.

How can I unblock my Third Eye Chakra in order to receive my intuitive gifts?

Valkyrie and Knight of Rods – This is an impulsive idea, and far more trouble than it’s worth. There is no advice here on how to do it, just a warning not to.

This is actually something I very much agree with. There is far too much focus placed on “opening the third eye” in new age circles these days. There are far less potentially harmful and misguided ways to develop one’s intuition than trying to rip off a filter that protects you from being overwhelmed.

What should I reflect on to better open myself to my intuitive gifts?

Naga and Judgement – Where are you closing yourself off? How is this effecting your path forward and your development into the person that you ultimately want to become?

Daily Self Kindness

I went for a hike! I couldn’t play a lot of the more fast paced games of the Fae or do any hard and heavy trails due to my ankle, but I did get out in nature and spend some time in those deep, dark liminal spaces that draw me so strongly.

One thought on “Defining Perfection

  1. I’m proud of you for getting outside. Now…MORE
    You need more of this…even if it’s lazy time and you can’t go far, even if you just sit at a park on a bench and watch the wind blow…you need it.

    And you ARE perfect, you know…In my eyes? You are absolutely perfect, exactly as you are.
    My imperfect perfection. My beautiful, amazing boy…

    You are perfect -to me-, yeah? Isn’t that all that really matters?
