Asking For Help

Today’s meditation was done in the bathtub to the soothing tunes of Ms Ebba Forsberg’s Been There album (which I believe is her absolute best piece of work to date with the addition of the song “Real Slow” on the Falling Folding Flipping Feeling album).

Tarot Balbi Argentinian EditionToday’s draw is the Five of Pentacles, which is traditionally a representation of tests, trials, struggles, and setbacks in the area of one’s finances, resources, health, home, work, or manifestations. This often translates into themes that have to do with scarcity and Times when one needs to seek out help from others instead of suffering through alone.

In this card, the coins look like flowers, and the plants appear to be supporting them.  This speaks to me of that need to seek out help when you need it instead of forcing yourself to suffer on your own or insisting you can handle it yourself.

I’m very guilty of this stubborn insistence.  It’s not pride so much as history that has taught me this is the way it should be, and it is a habit I am actively working on breaking.   Today’s card is a reminder of this journey, and the need to seek out help when you need it. No garden flourishes without a little help from not just the gardener, but also the rain and sun.

Aunt Lily's Tarot and Spirit of the Wheel OracleHow is the rise of summer energies manifesting in my life?

Seven of Swords and West – Time is getting away from you. You’re doing well and resting and are enjoying it. And, that recuperation is needed. But not so much that you miss out getting on top of the things you want to get done this summer. If you don’t start moving soon and get that creative spark motivated, time is going to get away from you right up into the fall and the beginning of the holiday season.

How can I harness these summer energies for my purpose?

The Chariot and Growth – Seize the day and get going.

Where would I be best served in directing these energies throughout the summer months?

Page of Pentacles and South – Sometimes having to be an adult sucks, but it’s a necessary part of life. It’s time to re-introduce more “adulthood” into your life and motivation, instead of avoiding the projects that need done.

Questions for June 5th

Tarot Balbi Argentinian EditionI am strong enough to…

Knight of Pentacles and Page of Wands – …lend my passion and drive to new things at a less breakneck pace than I’m used to. Not everything has to be a rush, and a little restraint would be a good (and healthy) thing.

So I can…

Queen of Swords and Two of Swords – …make better decisions based on my experience and logic instead of just “winging it”. Not that “winging it” doesn’t turn out okay, but it’s a whole lot more stress than if you take your time and do things at a more manageable pace.

I soaked in the tub today. It was so nice I didn’t want to get out.
