Heart First

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Mara Lunne TarotToday’s draw is the Magician, which is traditionally a representation of capability, potential, resourcefulness, action, and manifestation.

The heart in the imagery of this card feels like it softens the original context of the magician, turning cold ambition into heartfelt drive and incorporating into the card a desire to do good for oneself and others.

The message in today’s card is to make sure that you are acting with your heart as you go about your day today. The brain isn’t enough. Logic and intuition are formidable tools, but they aren’t enough.  Make sure you are also consulting your heart.

#DiscordTarotholicsApr2022 Challenge Prompt
Questions for April 17th and 18th

Fleurot TarotWhat weighs you down?

Peony atop Hydrangea – The feeling that I am undeserving of abundance or self care in my life. This is an issue that I have struggled with throughout my life, although very much at the forefront over the past few years as I try to break old habits and be kinder to myself.

What lifts you up?

Fir and Nasturtium – Security and stability. When I feel I have a stable foundation, whether financially or intellectually, I then feel free to stretch and breathe. It gives me the confidence to know that as I explore my emotions and stretch into them, I have solid footing beneath my feet so that I won’t easily take a painful tumble.

The Self Appreciation #STCTarotChallenge for April Prompt
Questions for April 17th and 18th

Mara Lunne TarotI see progress here…

Three of Cups – Finding joy in spending time with others. I am… very much the Hermit in many ways, and I struggle to be social more often than not. It takes me a long time to feel comfortable “loosening up” around others, and even then I’m more likely to prefer my own company the majority of the time.

And yet, I have been improving on this over the past few years by finding ways to appreciate others in my life more and tapping into gratitude for their presence in my life and what their presence contributes to my life and my experiences.

Because?

Nine of Swords – I’m not worrying as much about things that don’t matter or don’t exist. Like many people, I am often guilty of a lot of a lot of Unhealthy Thinking Styles, and this is especially true when it comes to public perceptions directed my way.  I am learning to use these Unhealthy Thinking Styles less, and trust more.

I have the strength to…

The Hermit – Know when alone time is healthy or unhealthy, and make the choice to use my alone time in more healthy ways.

Now l?

Nine of Pentacles – With this knowledge and ability, I have the opportunity to make healthier choices for myself that will assist me in my climb out of the pit instead of lingering in the shadows just past the pit’s ledge and never quite making it all the way free of the MDE’s grip.

Daily Self Kindness

I took a walk outside today while the others did casino stuff. It was just too loud and busy, and was really bugging me.  So instead, I went outside and walked around, taking pics of the flowers in the flowerbed, enjoying their waterfall feature, etc.
