Fishing For Nothing

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Maat TarotToday’s draw is the Seven of Cups, which is traditionally a representation of themes having to do with having a plethora of options to choose from, all of opportunity’s doors being open upon one’s path, and at times being overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices available in the moment.

I’m actually doing a lot of twisting in the wind today.  I have a number of things I need to get done and I just don’t feel like doing any of them, much like the figure in this card looks down at all the cups below, but doesn’t actually reach into into the depths to grab any of them.   She just sort of… toys on the surface of the water with one hand, not really taking the effort to reach, right?

The thing is?  Maybe I need this time off more than I realized.  Maybe I shouldn’t feel so guilty about all those things placed on the back burner.  Maybe… it’s okay to just relax for today… and -not- reach for any of those cups.

#DiscordTarotholicsFeb2022 Challenge Prompt
Questions for February 24th thru 26th

Maat TarotWho in my life needs extra attention at this time?

Political focused to the point they’ve lost sight (Eight of Swords) of themselves and who they were (Prince of Cups), and have begun moving away from their support system in life (Three of Cups) in their too tight focus on that political side of things.

I know who this is in my life, but I just can’t openly say it. It’s someone I care about deeply who has been pulled into the whole QAnon mentality to the point where they started seeing conspiracy theories everywhere and have been unable to untangle themselves from that mindset ever since.

How can you provide this attention in a way that is still healthy for you?

Remind them of the long history we share (Six of Cups) and support them emotionally (Queen of Cups) without allowing the negativity to break you down (Ten of Swords).

Some of the things they say are very easy to take personally, but keep in mind that it’s not about you, and they are essentially an echo of what they have been listening to. No thought there, just an echo.

Where in your life are healthier boundaries needed?

The Emperor – Don’t allow responsibilities to take over your life.  You’ve done really well at finding a healthier balance.  It’s okay to set down the mantle and do things a bit slower, and a bit less precise.  There’s only so much room on your plate.

How can you begin?

Eight of Coins and King of Swords – Be mindful of what you have built and where your talents lie. Own what you’ve done, own where you have chosen to build your life, and let what isn’t in alignment with these things slough off as immaterial.

Daily Self Kindness

I decided not to work today. I didn’t pull March’s decks.  I didn’t work on jewelry.  I didn’t work on writing.  I did pretty much not much of anything.

One thought on “Fishing For Nothing

  1. You are on vacation this week and it is absolutely okay to do nothing, to leave things for later. This week is about relaxing and enjoying yourself and resting. It’s about taking care of you…and enjoying one another.
