Make the Effort

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Fantasy of Korea Tarot - Page of PentaclesToday’s draw is the Page of Pentacles, which is traditionally a representation of a receptive omega energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s finances, resources, health, home,and manifestations. This can often translate into themes that have to do with learning new skills for work, new or resurfacing opportunities in one’s finances or resources, learning how to thrive with a handicap or disability, or recovery from illness.

I’m finding that I’m associating that last meaning with the imagery in this particular card and it’s all because of the oddity of the figure’s right foot.  Or rather, specifically?  Her heel.  It just seems malformed to me for some reason, and fits in with the falling of red leaves in the background that is, in this instance, a representation of pain.

Once upon a time, I spent three months living in a pain clinic.  You might imagine that pain clinics are meant to help people with their pain by relieving pain, but that is not what pain clinics are about.  When you are sent to a pain clinic, you are being told that the pain is permanent and will never go away.  They are telling you that you need to learn to live with the pain, so that you are not inconveniencing others with it, and so that it will have less of an impact on living a normal life.

This is what this Page of Pentacles reminds me of.  It is a reminder to lean into these skills that I learned in that long ago place.  The pain is always there, but you can mitigate it’s influence on your life and those around you if you’re willing to work at it.  Today’s card is an encouragement to be willing to work at it.

Questions for The High Priestess- Day 5

Haeohwa OracleIn what area am I guided to follow my intuition?

Oksoseon and Booyong – Take time to look closely beyond first impressions. There is immaturity in all of us. Are you acting rashly off your emotions and other’s outward impressions, or are you taking time to truly get to know them. Intuition can help you cut through both their masks and your assumptions, if you’re willing to let it.

What choices can I make in support of my inner truth?

Gyechu and Gangha – Don’t allow strife to dismantle your happiness. Instead lean into loyalty and love, and allow the rest to sort itself out.

In what area of my life do I need more support from others?

Tower and Child – Your inner child needs their watchful diligence to help support and encourage it to emerge and feel safe in doing so. So many times you shut down your inner child and hide it away, feeling unsafe in expressing yourself in this way. With their support and assistance in feeling safe and secure doing so, that side of your personality would be able to emerge more often and have a greater presence in your life as a whole.

How will this help me to reach greater heights?

Heart and Garden – You have always struggled with getting close to others, even in your social circle.  Making your inner child feel secure through a help with others will provide a greater amount of emotional openness and connection to others, without feeling as if you you are putting yourself at risk in doing so.

How can I put aside my pride and ask for help?

Ship and Ring – Start with Gideon. He makes you feel safer than anyone, regardless of the physical distance between the two of you. You trust him to help you, to protect you.  You can trust him with your inner child as well.
