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