Today’s meditation was skipped.
Today’s draw is the Ace of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of the seed of new beginnings in the area of one’s thoughts, intellect, education, ambitions, or communication.
Here in the symmetry we see the sword surrounded by a crown, which is what stands out to me the strongest in this imagery and speaks to me also of a modicum of control in the areas mentioned above.
I have a crapload of orders to get done before shipping out on Tuesday morning. Today’s card is all about ambition. My ambitions to garner new customers and grow my business. My ambitions to succeed. It is a reminder that if you want to achieve your goals, you have to seize control and steer yourself in the direction of those goals, touch upon your sense of ambition and let it inspire you to charge forward eagerly.

Anemone – Holding in and burying my emotions will only create mental health issues, whereas if I let it out and actually experience them, I can then transform those feelings into something better and healthier.
