Today’s meditation was skipped.
Today’s draw is the Sun card, which is traditionally a representation of success, positivity, optimism, and fun.
Today is my birthday, and although I’m still a little tender and sensitive from the stomach flu I went through, today’s card is a clear encouragement to make sure I have some fun today and don’t just hide away or allow that negative inner narrative I’ve been battling to have free reign.
It is also Beltane, and L and I did a ritual last night that we finished up this morning that included (for me) the intention of working more positivity and optimism into my day to day life.
I see today’s card both as an encouragement to have fun, but also a reminder of the intentions I put forth in our Beltane ritual.

#DiscordTarotholicsMay2022 Challenge Prompt
Topic for May 1: Do the Beltane Spread
Dandelion: How can I use my inner strength to help me in healing old wounds?
Primal – Lean into what’s true for you. It’s through your inner truth and that moral compass that guides you that you will find help and healing for those old wounds that still linger. Keep in mind that sometimes you just have to accept that other people don’t have the same moral compass you do, and stay true to your own.
Bees: Where could I put in more effort to help my community?
Fertilizing – Your time is far more important than things or money. Don’t forget that contributions of the physical variety aren’t necessarily what others need, and you can accomplish just as much or more through spreading little seeds of goodness rather than focusing on larger acts.
Garnet: What do I need in order to foster a greater sense of self-empowerment?
Green Man – To foster a greater sense of self-empowerment, you need more faith in your own innate ability to draw towards you what you need in life. You don’t have to struggle and strive for every little thing, for sometimes what you need is meant to come to you all on its own.
Swallow: Where do I need to more openly display my love and loyalty to others?
Self Worship – Show others that you value yourself as much as they value you. You trust their judgment in so much, so why would you not trust their judgment when it comes to why they choose to be a part of your life? By treating yourself well, you affirm for them that you see the value that they see.
Malachite: How can I better use intention to bolster the abundance in my life moving forward?
Goddess – Again we see an encouragement towards self-kindness. Take time to recognize all that you are and all that you have. Lean into a more positive viewpoint of not just the world around you, but also yourself, so that you can use this perspective to create a better reality for yourself.
Goat: How can I best overcome obstacles before me at this time?
Earth Worship – Work on connecting more deeply with your faith and spirituality. Spend more time in nature, return to your devotional practice, and take the time to reconnect often with the earth.
Primrose: How can I add more of the exuberance of young love into my life?
Oracle – As you connect more deeply with your spirituality and faith, make sure that you are staying open to the spirit guides and ancestors that are seeking to share with you. Eagerly reach for their messages instead of disregarding them, or allowing doubt or discomfort to turn you away.

Questions for May 1st and 2nd
Five of Cups and Two of Pentacles – Love means support through the times when I can’t see the good. This support is not just to help me in seeing the good instead of only focusing on the bad, but also in providing that support, it helps me to create more balance in my life as a whole during those times when I am feeling down and out.
This kind of emotional support something I need out of those that love me, and is one of the key pieces in how I see love and receive love, as well as how I give it to others.
When do I feel most loved?
King of Swords and Three of Wands – I often feel most loved when others are willing to help me in staying on track with my ambitions, even when that may sometimes be delivered with hard truths. Honesty is truly one of the ways I find loved ones support me most. While others might try to pander or soften the truth, those who truly love me will open up and tell me honest truth without filters or guile, ensuring I have a full and undiluted picture to work with and process.

I went through my KS backings and unbacked ten of them (that would be 1/3rd of the projects I was currently backing).
