Today’s meditation was skipped.
Connecting to your emotions isn’t always easy. Sometimes, it’s far easier to shut them away and not deal with them, especially the negative ones.
The thing is? When you do this, you close yourself off to connecting with others. Sometimes it’s better to acknowledge what’s in the cup and get it out there.
Let others see what you’re feeling, and then sort out the chips as they fall. This is today’s lesson in learning about my emotions and feelings… and it aligns with the card pulled today, for this card is all about that journey of learning about one’s emotions… and about how other’s emotions work as well.

Question for Justice – Day 13
King of Wands – You are owning your journey, owning your path, and owning all that motivates and inspires you. There is no shirking away from these things. You’re willing to own them, and let others see that you’re doing so.
How can I positively work with my current karma?
Use it as a motivation to move past (Knight of Swords) the painful shit that’s happened (Ten of Swords) instead of lingering to wallow in it (Four of Swords Rx). The King of Wands is about passion and progress. There is no room for past regrets. Accept them and own your mistakes, then continue moving forward.

Philosophical Question for April 13th: Is personal growth required to live a good life?
Reading Summary: The path of one’s life (The Path) will take you through many conflicts of principles and values (Five of Wands). It’s what you do with these conflicts that matters, you can use them to draw people together (The Many Rabbits), or split them apart.
Take Away: The answer here is yes. Personal growth is needed to live a good life, although conscious choice towards personal growth may not be, as these cards indicate that it’s more about our connection with others than about our inner selves and mindful movement towards being better people.
Question for April 14th: What kind of person do you truly want to become?
Reading Summary: You want to become the kind of person that helps guide others (The Hierophant) to a sense of safety and security (The Safe Burrow) by pulling the wool from their eyes and help them see the truth of their difficult situations as well as the path forward from it (Eight of Swords).
Take Away: These cards speak of those moments in my life where I seem to say something that unintentionally resonates with others, opening their eyes and allowing them to see themselves and their situation with new clarity. I like when this happens and I’m able to help people in this way. It feels good to know that I’m able to do this for people, even when it’s unintentional or at times when I don’t even realize it. I want to continue to be the kind of person that can do this for others.

I did a lot of purging of my own feelings, and then helping talk others down from theirs today. In both cases, I feel that it was good for me, even if it cut into time that Gid and I would normally do other things.
