Where the Value Lies

Today’s meditation was skipped yet again.  I’ve considered removing this notation at the beginning of my blog posts since I skip so very often lately, but I think it’s important to keep it here to remind me of what I need to do, even on the days I don’t do it.

Ferenc Pinter Tarot and How to Be a Wildflower DeckToday’s draw is the Six of Coins, which is traditionally a representation of generosity, accepting help, charity, kindness, and the act of creating better balance of the scales between the less fortunate and those that are.

A lot of times in life, I think we forget about how much we have. Especially, we forget about how much we’ve been given.  Be it a smile from a  stranger that lightens our day, a few bucks spent by the person in front of us in like to buy us coffee…. whatever.

The message I see here in today’s cards is that life isn’t always about money, and maybe?  We should look at our fortune not through the eyes of monetary worth, but through the amount of joy and kindness that we’ve experienced in our lives.

Questions for November 10th

Animal Power Oracle and Solara Occulta TarotWhat in my life am I over-complicating?
Chicken, Page of Cups atop The Chariot

You journey to emotional growth and a greater emotional intelligence is not a “quick fix” that you can just pick up and retain immediately nor control the speed of. Pushing will not make it go faster, just make the journey more uncomfortable.

What would be a more simple approach?
Butterfly atop Lizard, Ten of Pentacles atop Knight of Wands

Focus on living your best life and allow that growth to continue on at its own pace.  It’s great to be passionate about your growth, but things need to move at their own speed in order to stay on track, otherwise you end up veering off in different directions and having to course correct.  Whereas, if you take things slower, there is less veering, and less need for those course corrections.


#DiscordTarotholicsNov2021 Challenge Prompt
Philosophical Question
: Is it possible to truly experience anything objectively?

Ferenc Pinter TarotReading Summary: With great amounts of speed involved (Seven of Coins atop The Chariot) one can bypass their more dominant emotional (Queen of Cups), mental (King of Swords) , and self serving (King of Wands) responses.

Take Away: It’s possible to do, but in order to do so, surprise is required, as is the ability to catch and retain your reaction from that moment of surprise before the emotions and brain hop in to tinge your perception.


Daily Self Kindness

I’m playing catch-up and I truly have no idea what self kindnesses that I did for myself on Wednesday.

Weekly Creativity Prompt – Strength

Prompt: Pull the card from your deck(s) that matches the card posted below. Compare the imagery between the card provided and the card from your own deck. How would you read them differently and why? Share your card(s) and your interpretation differences between the imagery on them cards.

Tarot of the Hidden Realm - StrengthTarot of the Hidden Realm – Together the wolf and the girl stand. Although I do not see persuasion here other than in the dynamic of such an unlikely companionship, what I do see is the strength that comes in numbers. The strength of support as two lend to each other their strengths, and use them to make up for the other’s weaknesses. They are stronger together than either could ever imagine being separately.

Tarot Matryoshka, Flower Essence Tarot, Sortilegium Tarot

Tarot Matryoshka – Here in this card we see savagery not tamed, but in a moment of being controlled The man holds the tip of the serpent’s mandible in his grip. Eye contact is full on as the man holds the serpent still. It appears that it is not the hold of the hands that keeps the serpent from striking here, but rather the eye contact that signifies a battle of wills, perhaps between one’s civilized nature and more savage inner instincts.

Flower Essence Tarot – Figure skating is a skill that takes a lot of inner strength and determination to excel at. Here we see a skater that, from the path of her skates carved into the ice to the posture and pose of her body, has clearly put in the time and effort to improve herself.  Added to this imagery, we have the elements of the Elm and Gorse plants, both of which carry metaphysical properties that speak of the strength of the heart, and in this card speak of having the strength within to follow what is true and right for you.

Sortilegium Tarot – Here we see a lion tamed by a beautiful woman, which is very similar to traditional imagery for the Strength card. The lion sits patiently, pleased by the attention she gives him and soothed by her petting and care. The water below is quiet and calm, speaking of serene emotions.  This card indicates that you can get more with sugar than vinegar.  By being kind and gentle, the woman has created peace, where a more forceful approach would have resulted in resistance and chaos.
