Flower Food

Today’s meditation was skipped, although I have every intention on using this time away from home to get back on track in this area.

R Black Tarot and How to Be a Wildflower DeckToday’s draw is the Star card, which is traditionally a representation of Hope, spiritual guidance, trust, gentle optimism, and the connections between the physical world, internal perceptions, and the spiritual realm.

The stars bear witness to our pain, our heartache, our joy, and out celebrations. They have inspired us since the beginning of our time on earth to look outside of our own lives and beyond ourselves.

Combined with the affirmation card for today, the message I see here is that when things are dark and painful in life, it’s important to look for the things we can do to make things better. Don’t just wallow, but create something beautiful, just as flowers grow from manure.


Mr Lionharts’ #TheNovemberTarot Solitary Tarot Challenge Prompt
Questions for November 20th

The Crystal Forest Oracle and Phantasma TarotWhat is currently energizing me?
Tanzanite and King of Pentacles

Supporting others isn’t always about being a shoulder to cry on, sometimes it’s about making sure all the practical shit gets done and everything that need to be sustained and kept on track is in order to ensure there are no hiccups while those needing the support are distracted.

Why does this make me feel energized?
Citrine, Nine of Wands atop Seven of Wands

You take joy in being able to protect those that you care about, and this type of support protects them by creating barriers between their grief and those that might take advantage or drag them down further.


Tarot Nerd’s Better Boundaries Tarot Challenge Prompt
Questions for November 19th thru 22nd

R Black TarotHow can I tell when my boundaries are being pushed?

The Magician – Tap into the tools you have at hand. Pay attention and stand tall instead of just “floating along”.

How can I be more assertive in protecting my boundaries?

Four of Cups – Take a step back. You are in need of space, distance, and calm. It is only with a bit more distance and a good deal more centering that you can firm up those boundaries.

How can I tell when I’m pushing someone else’s boundaries?

Mother of Pentacles atop Five of Swords – Pay attention to their reactions. Tune in and watch for a rise in aggression.

How can I be more respectful of others’ boundaries?

Ten of Swords atop Two of Pentacles – Accept that everyone has to go through painful transitions, and it’s important to give them the right balance between helpfulness and space to allow them those experiences.

Potential Skills Cartomancy Reading

While things are full of harvesting this month, sometimes the harvest can come from within ourselves.

In what way could this skill be useful to me in the future?

Ten of Clubs – It will give you a different perspective on overwhelm and life balance.
