Staying Connected

Today’s meditation was ten minutes long, and was a quiet time spent with breathing exercises and piriformis stretching.  It was peaceful and quiet… well other than some intruding thoughts about next steps in the home organization department.

Witches Wisdom TarotToday’s draw is the Four of Water (Cups), which is traditionally a representation of apathy and withdrawal, meditation, taking time for contemplation, and aloneness (which can often also be loneliness).

Here in this imagery we have the theme of connection.  You are not alone, even in your most solitary times.  Whale song travels miles through water to reach to others and connect, serenading the sea in the process.

Today’s card is a reminder of the connection you have to others.  Don’t withdraw into yourself.  Don’t allow yourself to pull away from them when that connection is something healthy that you need in your life.

Witches Wisdom TarotReading Summary: There is a connection between the vines the woman wears in strength, and the lush beauty of the Ace of Cups.  This speaks of having the strength to work through newness, especially when there is an overlap into the Page of Cups Rx.  Uncertainty in lighter greens bleeds up into a greater certainty in the Ace of Cups, while both of these cards speak of newness.

There is also a connection between the Witch of Air and the Ten of Air.  In both cards, there is flight through the braids and skirt of the woman, the wings in the crows. This speaks of the ability to use your clever mind to discard and restart… the spinning of the figure indicating that this “discard and restart” may need to repeat more than once.  Combined with this, there is a hint of connection in the background colors between the Strength card and the Ten of Air, speaking of the ability to use your strengths to overcome a journey that ends in unsatisfactory ways, to use what is learned to do better.

Take Away: Overall, emotionally you will learn to be happy with it. It’ll be new, and there will be a lot of adjustment to make along the way before you get there though.

You’re going to go through organizing, and then re-organizing things a number of times before you find that peace and contentment you’re looking for. The good part is, is that one of your greatest strengths is your sense of organization. In the end you’ll figure it out, it’s just gonna take some time and repetition to get it right.
