Don’t Push It

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Lovely Day Tarot - TemperanceToday’s draw is the Temperance card, which is traditionally a representation of moderation, patience, and harmony through balance.

When this card was pulled today, I heard the words rather than needing to find them.  The message in this card is “Just do what you can today. Don’t push it.”

Today is packing day, and I have a good bit to get done to be ready to go tomorrow.  I’m trying to take it easy, but I can feel the tension slowly building the further into the day I go.

I will continue to try and take things easy, it just feels like it’s careening out of control all on its own.

Questions for Temperance – Day 16

Nashika's Rabbit Oracle and Lovely Day TarotHow can I apply {more} harmony or balance to my life at the moment?

Tree and Gold – Appreciate the value that lies in rest.

This is not something that I’m particularly good at, but I’ve had a few days this week that felt very nice and restful.  Not this day specifically, mind you.  But yesterday and the day before were quite nice.

How can I best adapt to recent changes in my life?

Present and Clouds – Allow yourself to be in the present and enjoy the world around you. Daydreams don’t always have to be about the future, and neither does your focus always have to be trained in that direction.


#DiscordTarotholicsApr2022 Challenge Prompt
Question for April 16th
: What do you need to focus on for self-care for this full moon?

Lovely Day TarotReading Summary: Instead of focusing on your own demons (The Devil), spend time appreciating all that you have in your life (Ten of Pentacles) and letting others know they are treasured (Atonement).

Take Away: This time over the next few days it’s not about you, so turn your focus to those that you are grateful for, and use the time to show them just how much they are appreciated as a valuable part of your life.

Side Note:  I really like the imagery in the Atonement card.  I also very much like that the devil’s tail in the Devil card could belong to either figure. There’s no way to tell for sure.


Daily Self Kindness

I didn’t really feel like cooking today, but I didn’t want the veggies in the fridge to go to waste so I made a healthy dinner for L and myself.

Today 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 Libra Tarot Reading with the Tranquil Tarot

What does my mind need for healing and balance?

King of Pentacles – Stability and security, facilitated by trusted advisors that help you in making sure you foster this in your life both through your physical health as well as through your finances. This provides you with peace of mind and, therefore, then fosters a sense of mental well-being and balance.

What does my body need for healing and balance?

The Devil – Awareness. It is through knowing where one’s weaknesses and temptations lie that could become unhealthy that you are able to keep these unhealthy and self-destructive tendencies in check.

What does my soul need for healing and balance?

Six of Cups – Nostalgia. Remember that there is plenty good in your past to celebrate. The bad stuff may be easier to remember, but it’s important to work at remembering the good stuff as well.

What self-care act am I being called to take?

Ace of Wands – Seek out the inner spark of enthusiasm that the depression has caused to dwindle, and as you climb for the lip of the pit, foster that spark of flame so that it will grow. Be gentle with yourself, for that spark is currently tender and delicate.

What is my major lesson right now?

Three of Pentacles – You are not alone. There are many in your life willing and eager to lend a hand and join forces with you in both your person and professional endeavors. You have only need to be open to them.

Full Moon advice from the Minoan Goddess Amalthea.

Temperance – Just because you have a lot to do doesn’t mean that you have to dive in head first and lose your balance in the push to do more. Take a breath. Take your time. Focus on grace over speed.
