Repetitive Adjustments

#DailyCalm with the Calm appToday’s meditation was ten minutes long, and was another of the guided #dailycalm meditations from the Calm app. It spoke of how sacred it is to give yourself time and space to just breathe. To take time to pay attention to where you are in the moment of your meditation.

How the air tastes and smells and feels on your skin, what sounds are present to touch upon the senses, etc. These are fleeting experiences that we are given the gift of a moment in time to notice, cherish, and enjoy while realizing that they are temporary and should be treasured.

Refine & Play TarotToday’s draw is the Ace of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of the seed of beginnings in the area of one’s intellect, education, ambitions, communication, and education.

There’s a need for new ideas today, and that has definitely panned out as the truth. People often associate the Ace of Spades with death, and that -also- is fitting for today.

There were a number of differences in the paperwork that I had to fill out today. The system is getting an overhaul this year, and every time I log on it seems that things have changed and a learning of something new needs done in order to get my paperwork done to go up north. Today is no different, and today’s card is a reminder that all of these new experiences and learning of new methods is helping me in adapting to the new system that they plan to have up and functional by sometime in November.


#DiscordTarotholicsMar2022 Challenge Prompt
Philosophical Question for March 16th
: Is patience an inherent virtue, or is it learned behavior?

Pear Tree Court OracleReading Summary: In life, we learn and adapt out behaviors in order to get what we want (Fluidity). Patience is most often learned through others either through experiences (Partnership), or through learning from others mistakes and experiences (Gossip).

Take Away: These cards indicate that patience is a goal oriented endeavor that one learns through others, or through our own experiences that teach us that if we are patient we will reap the rewards that we seek.

On a side note, although I agree with this, I would say that some are more inclined to patience than others. This is where one’s nature comes in to the equation.


The #ConnectWithYourDeckChallenge Prompt by E Roebuck-Jones
Questions for March 16th and 17th

Refine & Play TarotAsk the high priestess card “How can I better listen to my intuition?”

Strength and Justice – The more you tap in to what lies within you, the more you’ll get out of it. Alternately, should you neglect this part of yourself, it will wither. So in order to better listen to your intuition, you need to work with it more. For the more that you work with it, the louder its voice will become.

If I listen to my intuition more, what could I change?

The Devil and Three of Pentacles – You would be able to be more open to others that are willing to help you with your struggles with your addictive personality, instead of feeling like you have to do it all on your own.


Daily Self Kindness

I had a chocolate muffin today as a reward after I got done all my packaging.  I think that counts.

When the day ends
and we fall into bed
with blue satin sheets
to pillow our heads
and the sandman comes
to knock us out cold
where does the world go
as we’re snoring so bold
how can we know
what possibly lies
out beyond curtains
and our closed eyes
Will the world wait
or will it move on
while we dream of sweet cream
and sugarplums

🌕 Full Moon in Virgo – March 2022

Tonight is the full moon, and like all new moons and full moons, I did a spread aligned to the moon’s current themes as a part of my recognition of the moon’s cycle and influences upon us. Today’s spread is about the medicine within, and brought to you by Ethony‘s Tarot by the Moon series.

Full Moon in Virgo Tarot Reading with the Moonchild Tarot

How can I more deeply embrace my sensual side?

Eight of Cups – Why are you wasting your time on what brings you no pleasure? Let go of what isn’t working for you. Turn down the noise, turn off the machines, step out into the fresh air and silence of the forest more often.  Allow yourself to savor and even wallow in those things you enjoy, and reject those things that stand in your way of that enjoyment.

How can I be less critical this full moon?

Two of Swords – Open your eyes and make an effort to truly see why you’re being a dick to yourself in the first place. You will then be able to make the hard choices needed to set that behavior behind you.

What health and wellness areas need attention?

King of Wands atop Seven of Wands Rx – Be steadfast in your passions, but not aggressively so. It’s going to take a bit of time to get back up to full steam where your motivation is concerned, and that’s okay. Don’t push, just give yourself the support you need to let things grow at their own pace.

What area of my life needs reorganizing?

Page of Swords – How you talk to yourself. You need to seek out and adopt a better way. You have fallen back on old habits that involve a cruel inner narrative geared to tear you down. You are still learning how to turn this around, but you’ll need to seek out a new (and more hopeful) way of doing things.

Full Moon advice from the Minoan Goddess Amalthea.

Page of Wands – Remember that life is a learning process and an adventure. Work on looking forward with eager anticipation.
