Pulling Out Thorns

Today’s meditation was skipped… although I did make the effort today.  It just didn’t work out.

Abstract Futures Tarot by Hilma's GhostToday’s draw is the King of Cups, which is a representation of a projective alpha energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s emotions, relationships, creativity, and intuition. This often translates into themes that have to do with strong leaders with understanding and emotionally supportive qualities.

When doing readings for myself, the King of Cups often comes up as a representation of Gideon. He is very much one of those strong, dominant types with an emotionally supportive core.  He draws people in with that core of understanding and support, and leads them with an integral ease. In most cases, people don’t even realize they yield to his guidance, because it’s so natural to do so.

This card today is absolutely about him, and the sharp edges are a reminder that even when I am out of sorts, I still need to communicate this with him.

Today’s card says “Share your sharp edges with him and let him help you pull out life’s thorns”.

Questions for January 14th and 15th

Abstract Futures Tarot by Hilma's GhostHow can I be more open to clearly communicating my needs to others?

Find common ground (Three of Pentacles) and take your time (Temperance) to use your tools most effectively (The Magician).

Don’t go overboard. You don’t need to wax poetic to get your point across and doing so often can feel like “too much”.  This isn’t saying that you’re asking too much, but more that you need to find ways to communicate your needs so that -they- understand them better.  Speak their language instead of your own.

How can saying no (setting boundaries) be an act of love to myself?
Queen of Wands and Two of Cups

Tough love is still love, and it opens you up to things more aligned with your personal vision and values by removing avoidable obstacles.

I had play time with Gid today.  I had been feeling a lot of tension in my gut, and the play time has helped untie those knots.  I feel better now.
