Today’s meditation was skipped today because we had to get going on the road super early in order to get Z to her appointment on time.
Today’s draw is the Queen of Coins, which is traditionally a representation of a receptive alpha energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s finances, resources, home, health, manifestations, and the physical world. This often translates into themes that have to do with nurturing and supportive, well grounded energy based in finding things to help one find their center and stability in their lives.
Today’s card is a reminder that I need to find my center and re-establish my foundation. I need time in nature to clear my head of yesterday’s stress and mess, and to bond with the earth and her nurturing energies.
I spent a good deal of the day doing just that, as I went hiking in the woods with my camera in tow. I took pictures of the beauty of nature, capturing images of my love for all that surrounded me while moving through the snow covered forest. I then came back to the house and broughtt in firewood, then fill up the back of the truck with more so it will be easy to get into the house later. After that, I helped feed the birds, squirrels, and deer that visit the property here daily, then took some pictures of the tree that fell on the woodshed the day before yesterday.

Mr Lionharts’ #TheDecemberTarot The Path Ahead Tarot Challenge Prompt
If today is a crossroad, what path leads to the left? – Nine of Pentacles – Worrying over the past. Left is the past, and this path is about worrying over the past, and thus in turn, allowing the past to rule your present through those worries and fears.
Obstacles – The Hanged Man – Perspectives allow for clarity. You need to find a way to look at these experiences through a different lens. Until you can find a new perspective that will “stick” and stay with you, you will continue to struggle with these issues from the past.
Where does it lead? – Eight of Cups – Leaving behind those things that disappoint. If you take the “obstacle” in the way of living a life focused on past hurts and use it wisely, you can find yourself better able to leave the past in the past where it belongs instead of carrying it with you to overly influence your present and future.
What path lies to the right? – King of Swords – Strategizing for future successes. Right is the future and what is to come. Here the King of Swords speaks of future planning and ambition. It is the workaholic that pushes others too hard and themselves even harder.
Obstacles – Six of Coins – Needing to provide for others and being generous. These themes stand in the way of the single minded focus and ambition that the King of Swords symbolizes.
Where does it lead? – Ace of Coins – Money money money. Yes, ambition and stratigizing can lead to significant new income. But, what are you sacrificing onto the sword’s edge in order to focus so intently on the raking in of money.
What lies straight ahead? – Two of Coins – Seeking balance. Now in the present there is an opportunity to balance out the imbalance of the past few months and get back on track with finding a healthy balance between work and rest, between shadow work and pleasure seeking, between what is healthy and what isn’t. In the present lies potential and opportunity to set off on the path that will help you in developing that healthier balance if you are willing to reach out and go for it.
Obstacles – The Devil – Your addictions and temptations are a distraction. Sinking too deeply into the in order to block out the things you don’t want to deal with will only impede you on finding a healthy path forward and create stagnancy where there doesn’t need to be any.
Where does it lead? – The Sun – Happiness, joy, and a more well rounded sort of success than money alone can offer.

As mentioned previously in this post, I went for a hike in the woods today and spend some time taking pictures as well as bonding with nature.
