Role Reversal… Kinda

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Tarot of MugiToday’s draw is the King of Cups, which is traditionally a representation of a projective alpha energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s emotions, relationships, intuition, or creativity. This often translates into themes that have to do with leaders that are able to tap into the emotions of those they oversee, dominance with a strong emotional aspect, and authority that leads with a sense of understanding and compassion.

Again, we find that the King of Cups is in reference to my partner, and my relationship.  Although in this case it’s about me more than it is about him.  He’s not feeling well and today’s card is a reminder that sometimes? Roles get reversed out of necessity and that that’s okay.  You have the ability to be the King of Cups for a bit, and be comforting, strong, and supportive while he’s not feeling his best.  You can step up (or step in) and make the decisions he can’t in these moments when he’s not up to par. It won’t hurt anything to do so.


The #ConnectWithYourDeckChallenge Prompt by E Roebuck-Jones
Question for March 8th: How can spirit help me with my intuition?

Enchanted Unicorn OracleReading Summary: Open up and stop holding them at arms length (Waterwheel) and you will find your practice transforming (Transformation) into something far more invigorating, pleasurable, and fruitful (Sex Magick).

Take Away: So, keep in mind that the “sex magick” card here isn’t about sex at all, but about the beneficial experiences that come along with sex.

What we see here is that I’m still continuing to hold my spirits and guides at arms length and it’s, in turn, holding me back from the potential in this area.  By letting them in and allowing them to help me, I can find my practice expanding into a more pleasurable experience with far more to gain than what I’m accomplishing now.


#DiscordTarotholicsMar2022 Challenge Prompt
Question for March 8th
: What do I need to take more pride in?

Tarot of MugiReading Summary: How you handle your depression (Three of Swords), take care of yourself (The Empress), and pull yourself out of the pit (Ten of Cups) to return to healthy practices (The Lovers) again and again.

Take Away: You need to take more pride in the fact that during the depression, you make an effort to continue to care for yourself and make healthy choices, you work to lift yourself up, scrabbling to climb the walls of the pit instead of accepting your fate at the bottom and wallowing in the mud there. You push yourself to see the good and to take care of yourself.

In the end, these choices help you recover more quickly and get back on track more easily once the depression has lifted.

Side Note:  The cards over the last couple of days have made a point of reminding me that although I am not feeling the full impact of the dark pit a depressive episode can create for me, I am still in a depression at the moment.  The upping of my meds have helped mitigate some of the darker and deeper experiences that come with the depression, but the cards are making a point to make sure I remember that I’m still in the midst of this battle and not to see my current struggles with motivation and my inner narrative as the norm.

I cleaned out the shelves in the basement storage today with J’s help.  I also then took two naps today.

From this height
all is seen
and as chill breeze
it makes me sneeze
but all I can see
is what lies below
as jagged rocks
whisper “hello”
they invite me down
to join them there
and I close my eyes
to take in air
I turn away
from their siren’s call
and then walk home
still hearing
their invitation
to fall

Hidden Beauty Lenormand Reading

Hidden Beauty Reading with the Forest Path Lenormand

What seeds have been planted in my life?

Tower and Moon – It’s time to bring awareness to the emotional isolation that depression can create.  Pay attention to this issue and make sure that you take steps to mitigate this influence.  By bringing attention to this issue, these cards are planting a seed that can allow you move into a healthier head space and help you stay open to others even during darker times.

What is beginning to grow that may surprise me?

Heart and Clover – Just how very lucky in love you truly are.

How can I take this time to appreciate the beauty that is around me?

Mountain and Tree – This has nothing to do with the actual meaning of these cards, but as an encouragement to get out into nature and go hiking among the woods in the trees. Many of my mountain trails are starting to open back up, although there’s still a lot of snow. But, as a trade-off, there are not a lot of hikers. It is a perfect time to get out there and enjoy this part of nature that will become crowded later on and you’ll want to avoid n preference of more secluded spots.
