Changing the Trajectory

Today’s meditation was skipped (again).

The Curious Travels TarotToday’s draw is the Chariot card, which is traditionally a representation of decisive action, control, direction, willpower, and determination that breeds success.

Yesterday I did a reading about how the apartment search is going and the news there was pretty dismal. It has been a bit of a frustrating trip, and the cards lit a fire under my ass and determination in my soul to turn things around.

This morning, I got up early and when the property management places opened, I started organizing the girls to make calls while I did searches on the internet.  I made them call every single lead or possibility, no matter how unlikely. I pushed them to be pushy and determined with me, driving them forward to speak to a good 28 different property management companies, while at the same time I looked up each company on the internet so that they would have something to talk to these companies about when they answered. Once that was exhausted, I then started them on calling on owner ran listings and speaking to owners about different properties and leaving messages with others.

And… I think we might have found a place. We went out and looked at it and met the owner, and we are just waiting for him to email the background check (he said tomorrow, so we’ll call tomorrow evening if he hasn’t done it).

Today’s card is a reminder that with will and determination, you can change your fate and shift your trajectory into a different path. Sometimes, it  just takes having a clear direction and the determination to drive forward and really work at it.

Questions for The Moon – Day 20

Oracle of Light & Dreams and The Curious Travels TarotWhere should I listen to my feelings or better honor them?

Seaglass and Daydreaming – Pay attention to your body and mind’s need for rest. Don’t let past judgements from others influence your behavior when it comes to taking the rest and recovery you need. It isn’t the end of the world if you take a nap now and then, nor going to bring down the “whole house of cards” if you take a break now and then.

Where are my feelings actually not helpful right now?

Peony and Moonflight – That rest and ambition can’t mix, as if it’s an either/or situation instead of something that can be balanced to have both. This is bred out of the fears briefly mentioned above, and the insistence of others in my life while I was growing up that things could only be accomplished and done well if you put your all into the endeavor with single focus and determination (and sometimes not even then).

Philosophical Question
: What existed before our universe was created?

The Curious Travels TarotReading Summary: There was an element of give and take that lead in time to perfect balance (Six of Pentacles), which then in turn bred boredom and dissatisfaction (Five of Cups). From this boredom grew a need to explore and experiment (The Travelers), which led to the creation of our universe.

Take Away: These cards indicate that before our universe was a give and take of energy seeking balance, and eventually finding it.
Then sentience. Perhaps it didn’t start out as that, but it eventually came to be sentience in one form or another.
Balance and sentience do not mix well, as there is boredom there, and thus chaos and creation stepped in to upset the balance and create the universe… and us.

Again, even with all that was going on today, I managed a nap.  A much needed nap.
