Referral Pains

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea - Three of SwordsToday’s draw is the Three of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of depression, grief, and disappointments.

This theme often seems strange to people coming from the Swords suit, but it is important to remember that often how we react emotionally is rooted in how we think and what expectations we allowed ourselves to have before everything falls to shit.

Today’s message is a reminder to look closely at what really hurts. Sometimes the worst parts of a painful situation aren’t actually the wounds themselves, but how much we allow ourselves to blow everything out of proportion.

Question: What can be done to make Ms B’s move go more smoothly?

PIXAR Postcard Set and Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea - Nine of Wands, Six of Swords, Three of WandsReading Summary: The outlier in these cards is the nine of wands, which stands apart in color and always except beneath the feet of the figure and the egg in the three of wands. The speaks of leading down both barriers and boundaries for a time in order to get things done.

The figure in the six of swords connects with the grain and the soil in the cart above, it speaks of a need for patience. Hard work takes time. The more you rush, the less you’ll see and be able to catch before it becomes a permanent problem.

There is a heavy color connection between the six of swords, the three of wands, and the the anchor card. both of the Terra cards speak of movement and action being taken while the Theme in the anchor card is all about hard work and organization. Don’t let laziness or a desire to avoid conflict make things more difficult for yourself later on. Do it right the first time from the start.

Take Away: Take your time on the move and everything will go more smoothly all the way around.  There’s going to be a couple of setbacks along the way, but if you practice patience instead of trying to plow forward, it will sort itself out in the end.  Just don’t push.

Daily Self Kindness

I am playing some serious catch up and I have no idea what the self-kindness for this day might have been.

❤️ Self Care Saturday (On a Sunday)

These Saturday readings are (not usually) bearing in on any one thing or event in my life, as the question used is asking for a more general outlook. This is a self care exercise, and is not meant as a predictive reading… although that, too, happens on occasion.

The question is… What do I need to focus for self-care through the week ahead?

Self Care Saturday Tarot Reading with the Fantasy Showcase Tarot and Permaculture Playing Cards

EarthTwo of Pentacles atop Two of Swords – Make sure you are making choices this week that keep things balanced and don’t “upset the apple cart”. You don’t have to avoid choices like last week, just be sure that when you do make choices, that they are grounded and encourage balance in your life.

AirThe Tower Rx atop Page of Wands – You don’t have to tear down the house to add a wrap around porch and a pool in the back, but you do have to take the time to study up and learn how to do the process right. Make sure you aren’t jumping the gun in plans this week, no matter how enthusiastic you feel about them as they come up. Do your research first.

WaterLady of Wands – Those things that you are passionate about help to make you feel happy and emotionally fulfilled. Make sure you indulge in them this week.

Here and Now I Exist – Who you are now, in your entirety.

Two of Wands and The River Walk – You are moving at a slow pace, but you have plans and you know what you want. Keep your head held high and stay watchful so that you don’t trip over any exposed roots or rocks along the way.

The Slough – What is to be left in the past as you move forward.

Eight of Pentacles and The Flying Chest – Wishful and fanciful thinking about the work getting done without actually putting in the work its not going to serve you. Plans aren’t enough, and wishes are not actions.

What Lies Ahead – An ideal state or ideal self you are seeking at this time.

The World and Midnight Garden – You wish to make your recent changes permanent so that your future is more pleasant and productive, filled with beautiful things, beautiful energies, and stability instead of uncertainty and darkness.

Limitations – Negative influences, opposition, or ill will.

Page of Swords and Puss In Boots – Remember that some of those that stand most strongly in your defense are not really on your side at all, but are being cunning and working towards their own motivations and goals… not yours.

The Boon – Positive influences, higher guidance, or divine intervention.

Queen of Pentacles and The Savior – Remember to appreciate those around you that love you, for they make sacrifices for you that you don’t even realize that they make in support of you and your need for stability.

The Wound – An unpleasant past experience or event that is ripe for some support and healing.

Knight of Pentacles and The Insincere Courtship – Remember the other day when you had a reading the spoke about looked to the past to see people’s true nature? This is an echo of that, and speaks specifically of Gideon and how over the years he has shown his (nearly obsessive) dedication to you.

A Warning – Something coming that can be prevented or overcome.

Knight of Swords and An Idle Moment – Don’t let impulsiveness sneak up on you just because you’re feeling bored or uninspired. Action just for action’s sake won’t earn you progress, just wasted energy.

Empowerment – A future opportunity to work toward.

Nine of Pentacles and The Naked King – Don’t be so stubborn that you ignore your accomplishments and set yourself apart from others. Instead you have the opportunity to connect with others and increase your feelings of socially based security if you allow yourself to be open with them.

Message from the Spirit World – Moving too fast is not necessarily a good thing. Make sure you slow down and pay attention so that you don’t end up making an ass out of yourself.

Message from the Mind’s World – You’re going to need to start doing a little weeding when it comes to your surroundings. It’s hard work, but you need to lighten your load. Don’t disregard plans that you’ve made when making the cut. It’s okay if it’s crowded when you’re finished as long as it’s crowded with those things that you cherish.

Message from the Physical World – More self-care is needed. You’ve only barely touched the tip of the iceberg in this area, and are still learning to look at yourself in a more positive light. Don’t let slow progress create a negative atmosphere where your self-care becomes lacking and your personal needs are not being met.
