Today’s meditation was just under ten minutes long and was not guided. Instead it was simply a few minutes of peace and quiet, complete with breathing exercises and piriformis stretching.
Today’s draw is the King of Cups, which is traditionally a representation of a projective alpha energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s emotions, relationships, intuition, and creativity. This often translates into themes that have to do with those with an intensive amount of emotional intelligence and the ability to use that to support and motivate others in the way that those others need.
In my life, Gideon is the King of Cups. He naturally draws others, and people naturally and easily open up to him. He is supportive and always seems to know what is needed to provide the emotional bolstering needed to help people find their way forward out of their struggles. This is not the nurturing comfort of the Queen of Cups, but a supportive strength of the hand that pulls you off the edge of the cliff or hauls you out of a snow drift.
Combined with the correllation of Gideon and the King of Cups, the connection is furthered by the turtle, which is Gideon’s favorite animal (well, that and the wolf).
The message in today’s card is all about Gideon from start to finish. It’s about appreciating him and his support. It’s about acknowledging my need for him in my life and in each day that passes. It’s about remembering that his help and support are there for me whenever I need it. It is a reminder that we shouldn’t take these supportive people in our lives for granted, but take time to appreciate them every single day.

Reading Summary: There is a color corellation between the wolves in the Nine of Earth and the Goddess of Fire’s cauldron that speaks to me of the need for hard work in order to yield positive results.
The largest corellations though, are between the Goddess of Earth and the Offering. In these cards, the background is a scene that appears to be very much the same, except in the Goddess of Earth it is night and in the Offering it is day. There is also a connection between the position of the figure in the Offering and the Crone in the Goddess of Earth. These connections speak to me of the work mentioned in theprevious connections being something that needs constant tending and attention, as well as a little extra help from beyond (the standing figure in the Offering and connection to the beyond in both of these cards through ethereal figures and swirling smoke).
Take Away: The message here is that the goal of getting the upper hand and better balance for these addictions is possible, but it will take dedication and diligence to accomplish, as well as reaching into “the beyond” to pay respects and garner extra guidance.

OwlandBonesTarot’s #DecemberBones2021 Tarot Challenge Prompt
Where You’ve Been – The Emperor atop Nine of Wands – In control and building my “empire” by shoring up extra funds and other accomplishments as a protection against failure and unforseen circumstances. That is what the holiday rush is all about. The influx of new customers that can be turned into repeat customers, the added income that will help float the business through the slower months that are to come later next year, the added exposure, etc. All of it pumps new life into the business and allows a “cushion” to form between any unforsee circumstances and negative repercusions they may have the potential to cause.
Where You’re Going – Knight of Cups – It’s time to switch gears and reconnect with the more creative side of things instead of the “large and in charge” business side of things. Seek out what brings you joy and don’t worry so much about the “chores” and harsher sides. As things slow down it is now also time to reconnect with your emotions and emotional growth. You had to disconnect for a bit, but that’s no longer necessary and it’s tine to re-engage.
How To Keep Momentum – Ace of Wands atop Nine of Cups Rx – Don’t worry so much about where you’re going and long term happiness. Instead, focus on the little joys that will make each day a little more fun. You’ll have time to deal with the bigger picture later on.

I spent a great deal of the day outside taking pictures in the snow. AND I took a nap. All in all? It was a great and relaxing day. I had a lot of fun and it was very relaxing.
