The Thief… and Frustration

Today’s meditation was skipped again today. No excuses or anything, I just didn’t get done.

Dead Waite Tarot and Thera-Pets Emotional Support Animal CardsToday’s draw is the Seven of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of deception, sneaky shit, conniving, strategy, and… well, theft.

So in our building, we’ve had a rash of break-ins in the underground garage over the past week.  This sneaky fucker has used multiple methods and is very practiced at his craft.  He’s managed to break in three days in a row, and at one point had dismantled our gate to the point it wouldn’t even work properly to let cars in and out.

When I got these cards this morning, I didn’t really see how they relate… and then as a part of the security team for my building, I was contacted when the guy managed to break in a third time.  NOW?  I get it.

The message in today’s cards is not to allow this issue to frustrate me, or to take it as a personal failing.

The Tell-Tale Heart and Queen of Wands

The pursuit of rightness and fairness are a demanding taskmaster in your life, your moral compass making your path clear in any endeavor you put your energy into.

There is also an element of precise planning and careful execution in these cards that indicates that these elements are a strong part of the way in which you pursue your passions and interests, and how you inspire others to do the same.

What is my role?
The Man of the Crowd, Five of Swords atop Justice

To play witness to the cause and effect that is bred from conflict, triumph, and defeat. To note the intricate details of these experiences and come to understand the balance that is inherent in life through witnessing these themes as they play out around you.

Your mind is your greatest tool. Through your intelligence and clever ability to not just sort and strategize, but also examine other’s actions and make sense out of them, you are able to navigate life and your spiritual path with greater ease and get where you want to go with less stumbling blocks to slow you down.  Combining this knowledge with your spiritual knowledge and other strengths takes this ability from the mind into a truly magical skill.

Philosophical Question for October 6th:
Do ghosts exist?

Edward Gorey's Fantod Pack and Dead Waite TarotIt happens when there is a lack of boundaries, and the grief of those left behind is too great (Nine of Wands Rx atop Three of Swords). The spirit lingers instead of moving on to a new start (Ace of Wands Rx), bound by the inability to see beyond the grief of their loved ones (Eight of Swords).

So… yes. I wouldn’t say that this is the only scenario that causes the phenomenon, but it’s probably one of the most common.

Topic for October 7th:

ForgiveThe Ancestor and Four of Cups – The things done to you as a child where horrible, but continuing to hold anger, pain, or sulking dissatisfaction in your heart only hurts you at this point.

Accept The Effigy and King of Pentacles – Your need for constant and ever-growing security and stability comes from your past, and is a direct reaction to the uncertainty of earlier times. It’s time to accept that you are sacrificing yourself on the altar of past events.

HonorThe Bundle and The Star – You need to honor the fact that you can leave these hurts and injuries in the past, and start fresh by using optimism and hope to guide you.


Daily Self Kindness I got a nap.  I’m not really happy about it.  But I think I pretty much hit the nail on the head while we were talking earlier.  I hate that there’s not more hours in the day so that I can both take a nap, and get more time with Gideon.  It’s like I have to choose… and that sucks.
