Take a Breath

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Reverie Tarot - Two of PentaclesToday’s draw is the Two of Pentacles, which is traditionally a representation of juggling responsibilities, work/life balance, and prioritization.

The theme in the imagery in this card is very classic RWS in it s execution, and what I see as the message in this card is a reminder that there is a need to balance home with work. Balance accomplishments with guilt concerning how much you haven’t gotten done. Balance motivation with the need for rest.

Don’t push today.  You’ve had a rough week and it’s only Tuesday.  Three flat tires and a busted car window… four separate incidents in three days.  You deserve some time to take a breath.

#DiscordTarotholicsJun2022 Challenge Prompt
Topic for June 28th
: Self-Care for the New Moon…

Reverie TarotReading Summary: Although you’re really in need of some alone time in nature (Seven of Cups atop The Hermit), resist the urge to go it alone (Five of Swords) and take time for rest and recuperation instead (Four of Swords).

Take Away: Considering the events of the last three days where my car is concerned, now is not the time to go wandering off into the woods alone.

Better to do other restorative things and leave the alone time for when things aren’t so wrought with chaos, vandalism, and destruction.


Daily Self Kindness

I tried to get some rest today, and to spend some time with Gideon. I’m feeling a little numb but I tried to let Gid help me reconnect with my emotions a bit.

New Moon in Cancer Lenormand Reading

New Moon in Cancer Lenormand Reading with the Sawyer's Path Lenormand

Where to advance.

Fox and Bear – Don’t worry.  Nobody’s trying to screw you over and the decisions you’ve been making financially lately are good ones.  You have a chance to cement these good decisions in place with the energy of this new moon, just make sure you’re staying alert and watchful.

Where to recede.

Rider and Fish – Be wary of new ideas from this point forward.  You’ve already made the decisions that need made and they are sound, good decisions. New decisions popping out of the blue might be tempting and seem appealing, but they are fraught with potential problems you may not be able to see clearly due to the speed and immediacy needed in their approach.

Where to turn inward for loving self care.

House and Tree – Home is where the heart is and it’s also where you find safety and sanctuary.  Heading out into the world right now holds a lot of risks (as demonstrated by the last three days and the expenses incurred on your car concerning the four incidences in those three days).  Stay home and enjoy the stability you find there.


🌑 New Moon in Cancer – June 2022

Today is the new moon, and like all new moons and full moons, I did a spread aligned to the moon’s current themes as a part of my recognition of the moon’s cycle and influences upon us. Today’s spread is about the medicine within, and brought to you by Ethony‘s Tarot by the Moon series.

New Moon in Cancer Oracle Reading with the Golden Light Oracle

How can I bring more balance to my home?

True Self – Look at the things that you pressure yourself to do, and connect with the motivations behind these things. Are you driving yourself on using others expectations? Or your own?

Take time to reconnect your motivations to your own personal values, principles, and the goals that match who you truly are instead of what others want you to be.

What old family beliefs need to be healed?

Coronation – You will never earn the “Atta Boy” that you crave from members of your family. Stop looking to your mother to give you the validation you desire. Your family is never going to give you that, and there are other places and people in your life that will.

What old family patterns need examining?

Kindness – A lack of kindness within your own family does not mean that you cannot be kind to yourself. Treat yourself as you treat others, as you deserve that much at the very least.

How can I be a more impactful community member?

Relax – There’s nothing more you need to do at this time in this area. Instead, your relationship with the community could be improved if you relaxed a little more.

New Moon advice from the Minoan Goddess Amalthea.

Baptism – Cleanse yourself of negativity and step into the light. You need to focus more on the good in life and the positive, allowing optimism to flourish. Step out of the dark and wash away it’s cloying touch.
