Pace Yourself

Today’s meditation was skipped.

The Feline Rider Tarot - Ten of WandsToday’s draw is the Ten of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of overwhelm, burnout, and the burdens of taking on too much at once.

It’s okay to rest now and then.  You’ve gotten as far as you can go right now on the shelves until you get in the rest of the contact paper and a couple of long wood screws.

Instead of stewing over what -more- you can do, take a breather and appreciate what you’ve accomplished instead of pushing yourself too far.  Once the contact paper comes in and you snag a couple of wood screws, you’ll be all set to get going again. Possibly this weekend, in fact, as you have to start on orders on Wednesday, and there’s no way you’ll want to try juggling both trying to work on this project and catching up on orders that have built up during your time off.

Lisa Hunt's Fairy Tale TarotHow can I open myself to deeper healing from the Universe?

Top Row – Go with the flow (Left Card) and lean on Gideon (Opposites Attract in the Center Card), just don’t forget that a certain amount of effort is also required to keep things progressing (Don’t Get Caught With Your Pants Down in the Right Card).

How can I show up as a more present ally to my fellow human beings?

#DiscordTarotholicsJul2022 Challenge Prompt
Women’s Dive Day
– What project do you need to dive deeply into and explore more thoroughly?

The Feline Rider TarotReading Summary: Get the things done around your house that you wanna get done (Knight of Cups), and you will work your way into a sense of accomplishment (Nine of Pentacles) that will elevate you to once again feeling like you are the king of your castle (King of Pentacles).

Take Away: Home projects are the focus right now, and need to be where I dive deeply.  The cards here indicate that if I dive deeply into these projects that will make my living environment better, I will in turn feel better about not just my home, but myself as well as a result.


Daily Self Kindness

After I finished with the chiropractor, fire department, bookshelves, and plumbers for the day?  I took a nap.

Cool Down and Chill Out Cartomancy Reading

The prompt for this reading came from one of my Discord servers and is as follows: “For many of us in the northern hemisphere, it’s been hot, and heat for a lot of us can translate to stress. So for this week’s challenge, let’s ask the cards what we can do to cool down and chill out.”

The Odd Fellows Playing Cards Sir Octo EditionCool Down

Six of Hearts – Spend some time with those that make you feel good, and remember that sometimes lawn sprinklers aren’t just for kids.

Seven of Diamonds – Be patient with yourself and others. The heat can make you cranky and that can then in turn just make you that much hotter.

Chill Out

Queen of Clubs atop Ace of Diamonds – Don’t let the opportunity pass you by to have a little fun. You aren’t too old for a little silliness.
