Don’t Be a Shit

Today’s meditation was just about ten minutes long, and was an unguided meditation of just my breathing exercises and piriformis stretches.

Rider Waite Smith Tarot and How to Be a Wildflower DeckToday’s draw is the Wheel of Fortune, which is traditionally a representation of the ups and downs of life. We all have good times and bad, and the Wheel of Fortune is an indication that a shift is coming that needs our attention.

I see the Wheel of Fortune not as a harbringer of bad luck, or a promise of better luck, but rather a reminder that when things change, we need to make sure we are prepared and on good footing.  Even if “prepared” simply means that we know that some sort of shift is coming and not what that might be.

Combined with the affirmation card today, the message that literally shouted itself out to me when I saw these cards is, “Just because there are shitty times doesn’t mean that you have to be a shit.”  It has to do with not just the joy that the card speaks of or the Wheel of Fortune, but also the blue jay and how they are cunning thieves and bullies much of the time, and yet… also beautiful.

Daily Self Kindness

Playing catch up from over a week ago.  I just don’t remember.

Self Care Saturday (On a Sunday)

These Saturday readings are (not usually) bearing in on any one thing or event in my life, as the question used is asking for a more general outlook. This is a self care exercise, and is not meant as a predictive reading… although that, too, happens on occasion.

The question is… What do I need to focus for self-care through the week ahead?

Ostara Tarot, Crystal Forests Oracle, Power Animals Oracle

Side Note – There is a noticeable color flow in these cards that runs from hot and fiery on the left to cool and calm on the right. This speaks of its own progression and transition as the week progresses.

Earth – The Magician and Red Jasper / Empowerment – You’ve got this. You have everything you need (including time) to get done all that needs accomplished this week with your business and manifestations. Touch that fire within and let it burn away any lingering sluggishness.

AirStrength and Blue Apatite / Trust – You are loved and trusted, and have the ability to use that trust to help those around you make good choices. Don’t forget that this power is a precious gift.

WaterTen of Wands and Wulfenite / Amplification – You are emotionally overwhelmed. The death last week has amplified emotional struggles you’ve been having and you are struggling to carry them instead of shutting down.

FireThe Sun and Blue Goldstone / Authenticity – You can use your emotions to sink deeper into your work, to take joy in the process and put yourself more intrinsically into the pieces you make.  Funnel some of that part of who you are and how you feel into the pieces and turn those emotions into something beautiful.

WaningFox – Emotions are going to be far more difficult to hide this week. You are trying to wait until you are home and caught up on orders, but cracks in your armor are starting to show.

WaxingSalmon – Let the emotions out and deal with them.

Take Away – Most of this weekend’s reading is about making sure I’m processing my emotions or doing something with them in some way instead of trying to either close them away or letting them stagnate and fester.
