Today’s meditation was skipped.

Mystical Cats TarotToday’s draw is the Wheel card, which is traditionally a representation of the unpredictability of life, the ups and downs of luck, as well as cycles and turning points in one’s trajectory.

Here in this image, we see a cat having a grand time playing with the Wheel as it spins around and round. There is a message here about making sure that even when there’s ups and downs, you’re having fun.

Roller-coasters are supposed to be fun, remember?  People ride them for entertainment. This card asks us… when did roller-coasters end up becoming a bad thing?

Do Spread #1

Mystical Cats TarotSomeone important in your life who has had a lot of influence on you.

Nine of Earth – From the outside, it really does look like she has everything she needs. What people don’t see is how hard she has worked to build a comfortable life for herself.

Their negative influence on you and your life.

Queen of Fire – She is so enthusiastic about everything that you do that it’s hard to depend on her opinion on whether the things you’ve done or created are good or not. This means she may cause a false confidence that can easily be crushed in real-world application.

Their positive influence on you and your life.

Ace of Sea – She has provided a new new perspective for you on emotions and family. You’ve discovered what unconditional love (of the motherly variety) really looks like… and feels like.

Your positive influence on them in their life.

Ten of Earth – Your presence in her life gives her a feeling of grounded safety, and allows her to feel like she is provided for and cared for in a steady and dependable sort of way. Everything feels a bit more in balance with you as a part of her life.

Your negative influence on them and their life.

Three of Sea – She’s able to block out reality for a while when you’re there. This is fine in moderation, but can be unhealthy if indulged in too often.


Daily Self Kindness

Hmmm.  I am playing catch up still, and I can’t remember what I might have done as a self kindness for today.

❤️ 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?

Black Violet Tarot, The Visionary Oracle, Shadowspeak Oracle

EarthNine of Cups and Joy – You need to focus on how good it is to be home.  Don’t worry so much about what needs to be done and spend your time finding pleasure in where you are.

AirThe Lovers and Magic – Lots of time with Gideon.  Communication and play intersect when it comes to the two of you, and it’s in the magic of that connection that you find a greater sense of well-being.  Time with him is good for you, and even more so this week.

WaterQueen of Pentacles and Intuition – Be generous with yourself.  You’re just stepping back into your intuitive process.  Give yourself time to ground and become centered in it again. Don’t jump in too quickly and overtax yourself in the process.

FireKnight of Wands and Finding Connections – You are looking for the flow that connects the holiday rush to this now, slower pace.  There’s a lot of adjustments going on right now and you’ve yet to find that easy transition.  It’s there, just keep looking for it.  The sudden slow down doesn’t have to feel negative if you can find things to tap into for that energy to flow during this time.

WaningTrust atop Joy – Back home you take with you the knowledge of trust and joy, love and togetherness that you discovered over your Christmas visit.  It might be gone for now, but that doesn’t mean you have to lose the memory of it as well.

WaxingPressure – That Knight of Wands is really pushing, your adrenaline still flowing from the rush of December.  If you don’t find an outlet, it’s going to burst.

Take Away – Focus on the stuff that makes you happy this week and work at putting your energy into different ideas and venues.  Allow it to connect and flow, rather than letting this energy build and stew into a messy storm with no outlet.
