Sit With It For a Bit

Today’s meditation was un-timed and spent naked in the center of the bed under the ceiling fan.

Animal Spirit Tarot - Ace of CupsToday’s draw is the Ace of Cups, which is traditionally a representation of the seed of new beginnings in the area of one’s emotions, relationships, intuition, and creativity.

I had a bit of an emotional upset today, and it was today’s pull that helped me in getting through it.  It reminded me that my emotions, and their intensity especially, are still very new to me.

I’m still learning, and it’s okay to get pissed off sometimes.  It’s also okay to take time to process these emotions instead of shoving them away or reacting to them on the fly.

The message in today’s card is that sometimes it’s important to sit with an emotion until you have an understanding of where the new emotion is rooted, and where your initial reactions are coming from… before you act.

#DiscordTarotholicsJul2022 Challenge Prompt
National Lipstick Day
– Pick a physical feature you don’t like about yourself and draw cards for a positive message about this feature. Chosen Feature – My scars.

Lisa Hall's Fairy Tale Tarot (trimmed naked)Reading Summary: You earned your scars through both fighting back against those that would have destroyed you (Left Card) and through incidents that were no fault of your own (Center Card). They mark you as brave and strong (Right Card).

Take Away: There is nothing to be ashamed of in wearing scars earned in defending yourself, standing up for what you believe in, or that are obtained at no fault of your own. Remember that when people stare at your scars, they are not judging you harshly, but seeing just how strong you really are written across your skin.

The #TarotForTheWildSoul Challenge Prompt
Questions for July 22nd and 25th

Animal Spirit TarotWhere do I feel most connected with nature in my current environment?

The Hierophant and Queen of Wands – Currently, due to stalker issues, you’re not able to enjoy going out in nature alone and on your own right now. You need company along for safety. That is your “current environment”.

You feel most connected to nature in this situation when whoever you take along with you is open to you teaching them about your surroundings as well as the rhythms and cycles of nature, and is supportive of your bond with nature and need to be out in it.

What is the element I most deeply resonate with?

Eight of Pentacles – Earth. From the theme of this card, there is a theme that specifically has to do with the honing of one’s skills and constant growth.

The Moon – Water. The Moon here indicates Water, but also speaks of your feelings of uncertainty as you feel your way forward on learning and growth in your emotional intelligence.

I took lots of mini-breaks today while working in order to cool down, and drank a lot of water.  I think I’m going to need to pick up some Gatorade tomorrow, tho.
