Today’s meditation was just over eleven minutes long, and was another of the quiet meditations combined with my piriformis stretching. It was peaceful and quiet, and I again didn’t struggle at all to stay in the “zone” through the entire length.
Today’s draw is the Five of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of tests, trials, struggle, and conflict in the area of one’s drive, willpower, enthusiasm, principles, values, or inner spark.
Ever since I got my hands on the Stolen Child Tarot, I see this card differently, as I now see an element of empowerment in the card, instead of just a theme of chaos and conflict.
For that reason, what I see in today’s card is a message that tells us to stand up for what you believe in. If it’s important, it’s worth fighting for.

Mr Lionhart’s #TheJulyTarot Be Here Now Prompt
Questions for July 28th thru 31st
Bleeding Hearts and Page of Pentacles – Don’t force it. Take your time.
How can I use my July lessons for the journey ahead?
Gardenia, King of Cups atop Four of Swords – You need downtime with Gideon in order to make things feel balanced and right in the world. Avoiding this time is a form of self punishment for you that you need to work on letting go of.
What awareness can I further build on throughout August?
Abulition and Eight of Swords – Stop ignoring and denying yourself the benefits that meditation gives you in your life and your health. You need to work on developing a regular practice that you can depend on doing daily.
How am I guided to give closure to my July journey?
Feverfew and Ace of Swords – It’s time to start really focusing on your inner voice and what it has to say and how it says it. Turn over a new leaf towards a gentler and warmer tone in how you speak with yourself.

#DiscordTarotholicsJul2022 Challenge Prompt
Philosophical Question: Can predestination and free will coexist?
Reading Summary: You seek control and choose your passions (King of Wands). You choose your direction on life’s path (Two of Swords), and your interests along the way (Page of Pentacles). But Friday still comes regardless (Friday Cat).
Take Away: Just because there are things that are predestined to happen and places you are predestined to go doesn’t mean you don’t get to choose everything along that path. Just like Friday always arrives eventually, so too do these predestined things sit like landmarks on your path, but that doesn’t determine how you spend your week.

After I finished with packages today, I soaked in a nice cool bath before bed.
