Today’s meditation was skipped yet again. (I swear I’m gonna pick it back up damnit.)
Today’s draw is the Nine of Pentacles, which is a representation of wealth and accomplishments, gratitude and comfort, and the pleasure of having done well for oneself. This is a solitary pleasure, that moment of adjustment where you are doing well but are not yet comfortable to the point you are then ready to share the wealth (which comes later on in the Ten of Pentacles).
In the image, a figure collects the bounty of their hard work, feeling their accomplishment in every pore as they head home with their reward.
Combined with the affirmation card for today, what we see is an encouragement. An encouragement that we can do great things. We have it within each of us to accomplish our goals. To take flight and create what we want out of our lives and be what we want to be… do what we want to do. Don’t give up.

“I’ll do what I want” (Power) overpowering listening/obeying without question (Devotion) when it comes to new people and friendships (Ace of Cups).
This is about not taking Gideon’s words of caution more seriously and more deeply to heart. The other day he had a reading that held warnings, and we had a long talk about those warnings, about what those warnings were about and the people that it was referring to in the cards. I heard what he had to say and understood, but.. I was not as concerned as the cards clearly want me to be, for the warning came again in the cards stronger to Gideon today… and here to me as well.
Why should my inner critic speak up more in this area?
When reacting so quickly to disregard (Eight of Wands) I am acting like a stubborn child (Arrogant). His feelings are valid and he only wants to protect and take care of me (Inclusion).
I did not mean to disregard his feelings or his need to take care of me, but I think that I did, in fact, somehow end up doing just that. And that is why my inner critic should speak up more in this area. Not just for my own protection, but also out of respect for him as well as his feelings and concerns.
DECK USED: THE ULTIMATE FEMININE & MASCULINE PACK AND FANTASTICAL TAROT
Tomorrow – Two of Pentacles – Still waiting. Still juggling to make things work. Still more balance than imbalance going on, which means the full swing of the holiday rush will have yet to begin. There is a bit more business coming the last couple of days, but it is slower than anticipated.
Next Week – Temperance – Have patience. Still slow. Still not yet where you’d expect it to be. Be kind to yourself, have patience, and connect with the world around you for just a little longer while you have the chance to do so.
Next Month – Knight of Wands – Kicking ass and taking names is to ensue. It may have been a bit slow in getting to this part of things this year, but that bomb of overwhelming busy is coming, will smack you in the face and be in full swing by the time December arrives.
Side Note: The back of these cards still reminds me of the bunny in Donnie Darko.

Sexy time with Gideon. So… so… so fucking hot.
