Today’s meditation was skipped again. So many good intentions… so many skipped mornings.
Today’s draw is the Knight of Pentacles, which is traditionally a representation of an active beta energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s finances, resources, health, home life, and the physical world. This often translates into themes that have to do with taking bold actions and making positive progress in these areas.
Today I took Ms B to the doctor and went in with her to meet her primary as well as get set up as her emergency contact.
This is one of many small steps she and I have been working on to make sure that she will have someone to depend upon for a support system if needed. Because Z lives in Canada, there are too many factors that could get in the way of her being able to fill that role.
The message in todays cards is to keep asking questions and expressing interest in meeting these people in her life. The doctors, the neighbors, the friends… becoming the head of this support system requires curiosity and an openness to explore her life with her.
DECK USED: HUSH TAROT AND HOW TO BE A WILDFLOWER DECK
The Marasmius Rotula (Pinwheel Mushroom) is a symbol of childlike exuberance, which is set atop the Salix (Willow tree), a symbol of healing and working through grief. Combined with the Nine of Diamonds, what we see here is a reminder to count your blessings during this time, and that in doing so, it will assist in the gentling and healing of your grief.
How can I best build on this throughout the week ahead?
Queen of Spades atop King of Clubs, Rowan atop Yellow-dust Amanita
Here we see the influences of your mother in the Queen of Spades, overshadowing your own intense drive and desires (King of Clubs). These cards indicate that the days ahead with your mother may try to eat away at your confidence.
Amanita Flavoconia (Yellow-dust Amanita) is a representation of (among other things) self doubt, which is something that has been flirting around the edges of your awareness the last couple days and is sure to be on the rise if your confidence takes a hit right now. Sorbus (Rowan) atop the Amanita is a reminder of the fact that you can counter that energy with focus on your successes, and that in doing so you can protect yourself from the effects of this self doubt.

Ten of Pentacles – You need to take time to reflect on just how fortunate you are and how much you have. Don’t get so caught up in the combination of the rush and grief that you lose sight of that.
Self care I need right now for the…
Mind – King of Pentacles – Look at where you are and how you’ve gotten there. You may not get everything you want in life, but you strong enough and clever enough to get what you need. Don’t lean into brute force.
Body – Knight of Pentacles – Get on top of making sure you are getting the physical care you need. Falling out of healthy habits is a very bad idea.
Spirit – King of Wands – Own your passions, and lead others to help you in achieving your dreams. Go boldly forth…
Side Note – Lots of ownership of one’s actions present in these cards. And in the readings for today as a whole, there is a heavy emphasis on the need to focus on what you have and your accomplishments in order to bolster your confidence.
