There’s More

Today’s meditation was skipped once again. The bank adventure continues and is frustrating as hell. I swear I am trying to be nice about it.

Fantastical Tarot and How to Be a Wildflower Deck

Today’s draw is the Seven of Cups, which is traditionally a representation of having an abundance of choices, which can be seen as a boon, but can also bring about feelings of inner struggle and overwhelm.

The phrase “you will see wonders” in today’s affirmation card, combined with the couple on the horse riding over the bridge in the Seven of Cups, speak to me of looking beyond the opportunities and options that are in front of your nose. Seek more.

The message in today’s cards is a reminder to keep an open mind and stay flexible. You’re missing out on the good stuff by focusing too hard on what you think are your only options.

Masculine Archetype Deck and The Witches Tarot

What truth do I need to be reminded of?
Entitled Prince and Eight of Wands

Patience is a virtue and immediate gratification is not a theme in your life, no matter how much you want it to be. Continue to work at being kind, and try not to push too hard on others who are just trying to help.

How can I positively embrace and build on this truth?
Crossing the Threshold atop Romantic, Eight of Swords atop The Tower Rx

It’s not the end of the world, just a stumbling block on your path. Continue to use your words and kindness to sway people in your favor and, in turn, get them to work harder for you than they would if you approached with bluster.


#DiscordTarotholicsNov2021 Challenge Prompt
Questions for November 16th & 18th

The Slavic Oracle and Fantastical Tarot

Advice I need to hear at this time concerning my work life.

Fertility and The Star – Look forward with eagerness and hope, because now is the time for growth. Don’t worry so much about the shit that’s going wrong, for they are only small pebbles on the path forward. They won’t hinder your growth in the least.

What do I need to focus on for self-care for this full moon?

Harvest and Ace of Pentacles – Now is the time when businesses in the red slide into the black, and your business needs this boon as well. Focus on what needs to be done to keep your business running smoothly and pulling all that new money in that you depend on the season to bring. The more you manage to bring in at this time of year, the easier and happier the majority of the year ahead will be.


Daily Self Kindness

I worked hard to just not think about the bank thing. To give it some time and space.

Gideon’s Challenge

Tension and Discord

The frustration
eats away at the insides
like liver spots
and gangrene
on the flesh
it fills the heart
with anger that
simmers hot
at the core
and sears outward
to lick at the senses
of those undeserving

Deep breaths
don’t bank the flames
only ease the knots

Lunar Eclipse in Taurus – November 2021

Tomorrow is not just the Full Moon, but there is also a Lunar Eclipse!  In celebration of that upcoming event, I decided to do a reading geared towards the eclipse and the energies surrounding it. This spread is brought to you by Ethony‘s Tarot By the Moon series.

Lunar Eclipse in Taurus - Surrealist Tarot

1. What do my guides want me to know during this time?

The Wheel – Ups and downs are part of life. Make sure you’re focusing on the good and not becoming hyper focused on the bad.

2. Where is it best to focus my energy at this time?

Two of Cups atop Four of Pentacles – Resolving differences and creating sense of community between those nearest and dearest to you. Union and harmony is going to be extremely important in the weeks ahead, and these themes can only be established when people feel safe and secure.

3. What mask do I need to drop?

Strength – You can’t do everything yourself no matter how much you want to believe that you can. Stop pretending. You’re not fooling yourself or anyone else. Allow others in to help you.

4. What needs to be reigned in?

Eight of Wands – Slow down. You’re starting to get ahead of yourself again. Don’t allow yourself to fall back into that horrible churning place where you feel like you’re spinning your wheels and not getting anywhere.

5. How can I be more gentle with myself during this time?

The Hermit – Make sure you are getting the extra (and yes, healthy) alone time that you need right now. This means allowing yourself time in nature whenever possible, and getting back into your meditation practice on a regular basis.
