Expectations and Progress

Today’s meditation was another of the unguided variety with breathing exercises, and lasted just under ten minutes.

Gothmancy Tarot and Thera-Pets Emotional Support Animal CardsToday’s draw is the Knight of Pentacles, which is traditionally a representation of an projective beta energy in the area of one’s finances, resources, health, home, manifestations, and the physical world. The Knight of Pentacles is a “go get’em” energy, but one that moves at a slower pace and marches to the beat of its own drum.

The Thera-Pets card for today says “you are doing enough” and boy it sure doesn’t feel like it. It feels like I’m slacking off and not getting any prep done at all. I know that’s not true, but I also know I don’t feel like I’m getting the things done that I want to before the holiday rush starts. There’s been a lot of obstacles in my path this week that I’ve been forcing me to take things slower than I would like.

Today’s cards are a reminder that any progress is still progress, even if it comes slower than you’re used to.

Questions for October 17th and 18th

Madhouse TarotThe wheel it spins, around, again, what have I started (Judgement), how will it end (Justice atop Knight of Swords)?

Looking at life through the lens of who you want to become and what you want to accomplish in this lifetime, and what you’re going to feel about what you see when you look back on at the end of your time, is a journey that you have chosen and continue to focus on.

The cards here indicate that it is only through following this path from one day to the next that you will reach the end of your journey, both happy with where you have come to be as well as what you’ve done along the way. No amount of strategy or manipulation will settle the scales into balance… only staying focused on the goal, and doing the work one day at a time will do that.

And as the serpent bites its tail, what will recur (Six of Swords), what must I prevail (Nine of Cups)?

Again and again throughout life, you are going to need to make decisions to leave behind things that are no longer working for you or are unhealthy for you, and move on to something better and healthier.

These choices to leave behind those things that are harming you or are unhealthy for you will be constantly changing. With each stage of life, you will need to make these decisions again and again in order to stay on top of what is going to work for you and makes you happy.

The goal in this is not just about health, but also about happiness. For it is only through having a positive outlook and being happy in the present that you will find true contentment.

Question: How can I help myself stay positive during this period of preparation before the holiday rush?

Gothmancy TarotReading Summary: There is a color connection in the skin color between the Five of Wands and the Ace of Swords. This indicates that the communication between others might be a bit of a struggle right now, and is a part of what’s bringing you down.

The color connection in the reds and background between the King of Swords and the Ace of Swords then speaks to strategy being applied to new ideas and communication with others. By having a strategy in these areas, you can help pave the road to smoother communication.

Take Away: Speak up and be clear about what you want to happen during this time and what you want to accomplish. In doing so you are able to communicate with others what they can do to help you.

This communication well then bring people over to your side, instead of there being a constant feeling of conflict going on between what you want to accomplish and what they’re doing to try and help you.


Daily Self Kindness

I took the day off from the farm today. I just… needed some peace and quiet and a bit more sleep. Since everything is caught up and well staffed at the moment, it was a good time to take the day.

One thought on “Expectations and Progress

  1. You’re going to get what needs doing done. I know you’re panicking a little bit but that’s okay. You’re okay. This anxiety hits every year and you always do just fine.

    That cloth looks great by the way, man
