Everything Is Temporary

Today’s meditation was (yes, once again) skipped.

Trick or Tarot and Thera-Pets Emotional Support Animal CardsToday’s draw is the Seven of Swords, which is traditionally about strategizing, getting away with something, cunning and/or clever behavior, and… well, thievery and other illicit acts.

I left the  hospital today and went directly to get my phone replaced, aware that Gideon had to be freaking OUT.  I’m sore… I hurt.  But I’m fine.  L has to stay for now, but should be able to come home tomorrow if all goes well.

The person that hit us?  Got away. The police are looking for them, and said they will update me when they have any news.

The hit and run driver?  There right there is our Seven of Swords. The theme of these cards today is reassurance. A reminder that things -will- work out, and that everything is temporary… even this.

Questions for October 13th and 14th

The Witches World Oracle and Black Cats TarotOmen, sign or prophecy, what will the thirteenth reveal to me?

Charge forward with your plan (Knight of Swords), while staying focused on the goal (Rosemary). By being flexible and shifting your patronage to this new service (Willow), you’re going after more monetary rewards (Knight of Pentacles).

The Knight of Pentacles is a slow-moving energy, and these rewards may not show up all at once, but it’s about damn time you switched over to something that isn’t price gouging the hell out of you each month. Be patient.

Of all things that keep me afraid, what do I fear that is here to aid?

I fear that by standing back and taking things slow (Rabbit), no matter how capable I am or the amount of tools at my disposal (The Magician) will allow me to reach a place of happiness and comfort (Ten of Cups).

Sometimes fear works as a motivator, or at least, I used to use it as one. Now that I’m trying to be kinder to myself and ease up on how demanding of myself that I am, that fear is no longer channeled into pushing harder and sort of hovers there, unresolved and without an outlet.   Perhaps it’s time to find a new outlet for it.


#DiscordTarotholicsOct2021 Challenge Prompt
Philosophical Question for October 13th
: What awaits us after we pass to the other side of the veil?

Trick or Tarot DeckReading Summary: We will have to decide (Two of Swords) on whether we want to pause in limbo for a while (Nine of Swords), or leap back into the fray right away (Knight of Swords).

Take Away: I’m actually surprised that the answer here coincides with my own beliefs, or at least a part of my beliefs on what happens after death.

I believe that we reincarnate in order to continue on with our soul’s lessons and improve ourselves… or, we pause in limbo for one reason or another, and then if we forget how to move on, we end up as a ghost.


Daily Self Kindness

I napped, even though I really needed some more time with Gideon.  I was so exhausted and I let myself take a long nap, which helped quite a bit.

Weekly Creativity Prompt – The Haunted House

Prompt: Draw (at least) three cards, and use them to tell us a story describing a visit (real or fictional) to a creepy haunted house).

Ghoulish Garb's Terror TarotWhen I woke up here, I didn’t understand where I was or how I got here, I just knew that this is where I was supposed to be (The High Priestess).

The feeling was so strong, that I lingered for a long time (The Hanged Man), and when others came, I convinced them to stay with me (Strength).

We chose our rooms and made ourselves at home, becoming a part of the creaking wood, warped glass windows, and crumbling mortar (Temperance).

And now, when the living come, which they always do with their bright and shimmering energy and vibrant full color lives (The Star), we show them who this house truly belongs to… and always will (The Emperor).
