Dark Clouds vs Paradise

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Tarot of Mystical MomentsToday’s draw is the Six of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of leaving behind what isn’t working for you in order to find something better and healthier.  This is often along the themes of leaving behind discord and strife for “calmer waters”.

Here in this imagery we have a woman lounging among the clouds, seeking an anchor and dreamily looking down at an abandoned island. Her dark cloud is ominous as she looks at something brighter and warmer and far more peaceful below.

This card is a reminder that the rush is over. A reminder that without the chaos and distraction of the holiday rush to keep things going and keep you uplifted (or numb) it’s time to lean into optimism once more.  Don’t be lackadaisical about it… don’t allow yourself to sink into sedentary stagnation.  Reach for the energy, the light, the optimism and the positivity that is needed to keep you from ending up in that dark cloud instead of in paradise.

Tarot of Mystical MomentsSomething Important In Your Life

The Empress – Taking better care of myself.

The influence that the essence of Fire has on this important something.

Page of Wands – It can be difficult to find enthusiasm on this topic, especially as you get distracted so easily by different ideas and interests. So much of your life is ruled by these moments of enthusiasm that it can be hard to concentrate on the things that feel more “routine”.

The influence that the essence of Air has on this important something.

Two of Swords – It’s about choice… and remembering that you made the choice in the moment so that you will make it again and again. It’s about not following your emotions that say “blah, I don’t wanna” to the routine self-care that you need, and making the choice to do it anyway regardless of those feelings.

The influence that the essence of Water has on this important something.

Ace of Cups – Although this new journey toward building a better relationship with yourself is a good thing?  It can also be a bit overwhelming (based off the imagery specifically).

The influence that the essence of Earth has on this important something.

Two of Pentacles – That overwhelm is caused by imbalance and lack of stability. If you want to find a way to get on track with doing what you need for yourself on a regular basis, whether or not you “feel like it” in the moment?  You need to find a way to fit it in that works with everything else in your life instead of trying to wedge it in here and there.  Give these things a more permanent placement within your day, so that each cycle includes them automatically, instead of you trying to fit them in when and where you can.


Daily Self Kindness

I took a nap today.  I didn’t really want to, but I was giving Miss Luna a nuzzle and the sandman hit me on the head. Apparently I needed it as I felt much better when I woke up.
