Today’s meditation was skipped. I suppose I could have done it while lying on an ice pack, but I ended up falling asleep instead.
Today’s draw is the Six of Cups, which is traditionally a representation of your roots within the past, nostalgia, reflecting on past events, and childhood experiences.
Those that have grown up in an environment of abuse often struggle with feeling that they matter in life. This is not the only experiences that can give root to these feelings, though. Sometimes it can be hard to look back on our pasts and see anything of value, no matter what lies back there behind us.
The truth is though? We would not be the people we are today without the past there to teach us, guide us, and… sometimes show us just exactly what not to become.
Today’s cards are a reminder that the past holds the building blocks that create who we are in the present, and who we will become in the future. What we do and the lives we touch change the lives of others, just as they change ours. To someone? You matter. You always matter. Just existing makes a difference in someone’s life. Don’t forget that.

Questions for October 19th and 20th
Like howling wolves that call for the moon, what instinct am I, to follow soon?
The Faery Ring, The Magician atop Three of Hearts
You excel at all that you put your mind to and adapt quickly to new circumstances. These qualities are a part of you that you will be given the opportunity to share with others soon. As you advance and learn new tools and skills to put under your hat, take these others with you.
Triple Goddess of moon and tides, share your wisdom, for my path, tonight…
Little Brother Little Sister, Seven of Cups atop Four of Hearts
Staying caged (Ie: staying home) is an emotional choice, and your sister needs your help right now.
So, I guess I’m going to my sister’s full moon circle tonight. I’m always welcome to join in her coven’s activities, but being solitary, I’m not a big fan of group ritual and practices. I’ll be making an exception tonight, though.

#DiscordTarotholicsOct2021 Challenge Prompt
Philosophical Question: Is there an afterlife?
Reading Summary: Depending on how you die (The Tower), and what you’ve got going on on the inside (Strength), there are some that stick around to try and deal with unfinished business (Skeleton in the Two of Wands is facing the Past).
Take Away: So… yes. Obviously if some of us are sticking around to deal with unfinished business, there is an afterlife. I would imagine that it’s not what is generally imagined it to be, and that there are a variety of different scenarios (the one mentioned above being merely one of them), but the answer makes it clear that there is indeed the possibility of life after corporeal death.

I’ve been using an ice pack on my back off and on all day. It’s feeling both painful, but also quite unstable today.
