Temptation’s Consequences

Today’s meditation was spent at the bottom of the bathtub with the shower running (at around 5:30am). I spent some time there after a marathon of spewing from both ends to let my body warm and ease my nerves, as well as wash away the sweats.

Lunalapin Tarot - The DevilToday’s draw is The Devil card, which is traditionally a representation of temptation, addictions, and self inflicted hardships.

You were really sick last night, you need to make sure that you treat your body well today instead of eating junk or being impatient with your body and its needs. There’s always a chance that the nausea and vomiting could come back, and you need to make sure that you do what you can to mitigate those risks instead of just eating whatever you want.

The message in today’s card is to be conscious of what temptations pull at you today, for they have potential to be disastrous.

Questions for Beyond The Journey – Day 28 to 30

Cat Wisdom CardsWhere do I find myself right now at the conclusion of this month’s Journey?

Patience – You find yourself now at a place of self-awareness that will allow for more patience with yourself moving forward. You know where you are pushing too hard, and where you need to treat yourself more kindly, and can practice the patience to keep that balance.

What am I asked to leave behind moving forward? Why?

Alarm and Take Action – Alarm without action creates anxiety. But, when you seize control and begin to do something about it instead of staying stagnant and letting it wash over you, you are able to turn alarm into healthy results. Keep this in mind and it will help you in leaving behind the anxiety that’s been niggling at you over the past few months.

In what direction am I asked to take these teachings as I move on past April?

Fear – Use this month’s lessons to conquer your fears instead of giving into them.


#DiscordTarotholicsApr2022 Challenge Prompt
Question for April 29th
: What do you need to focus on for self-care for tomorrow’s new moon?

Lunalapin TarotReading Summary: Down times (Ten of Swords) don’t mean that you lose sight of your goals (King of Wands), just that you save the battle for tomorrow (Seven of Wands).

Take Away: As violently sick as I’ve been so far today, what I need tomorrow is some down time and recovery.

I’m sure just as much as I feel like crap today, my stomach and throat will feel raw tomorrow and my muscles are going to hurt as if I’d gone through a triathlon or something.

No work. No pushing. Just rest and recuperation.

Replenishment Oracle Reading

Replenishment Oracle Reading - Dr Chuck Spezzano Self Therapy Cards

What do I need to see to give myself permission to rest?

Meaningless and Success – Overwhelming yourself with work and flirting with burnout steals away the joy that your success should hold and makes it feel meaningless. Yes, you can push hard and go further at a faster pace, but are you really enjoying it when you do?  No, you aren’t.  So better to allow yourself the rest you need and enjoy the journey instead of trying to sprint ahead and overburdening yourself in the process.

What can I do today that will replenish my energy?

Personal Myth and Communication – Connect with the lies that your negative inner dialogue are telling you and piece them out, work with them and find where they are false.  Instead of letting the hamster wheel continue to run, step off and look at it more objectively.  Find a better message than the negative ones constantly repeating in your head.

What can I do today that will bring me joy?

Guilt and Inspiration – Stop feeling guilty for having fun and indulging in your creative spark. It’s okay to feel that spark, feel empowered by that spark, and allow it to carry you forward with curiosity and inspiration.
