Stand Up

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Terra Volatile and How to Be a Wildflower DeckToday’s draw is the Five of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of tests, trials, and conflict in the area of one’s intellect, education, logic, ambition, or communication. This often translates into themes that have to do with competition at work, arguments, and the drive to win and come out on top of the situation.

The message here, when this card is combined with the affirmation card for today, is to remember that not all journeys are meant to be easy.  Sometimes you have to fight to move forward and keep life interesting.  It won’t all just land in your lap.
