Pick and Choose Your Battles

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Ema Poetica Tarot - Five of SwordsToday’s draw is the Five of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of struggles, strife, test, trials, or conflict in the area of ones thoughts, logic, education, intellect, or ambitions.

What stands out strongest in the imagery of this card is how the tips of the three floating swords are tied together with wings.  The other two sit point down in the sand, left behind.

You can’t do everything at once, just as that set of wings can’t carry all five swords at once.  You have to pick and choose your battles.

Philosophical Question for August 3rd
: Are you more of a Dreamer or a Believer?

Postmondrian Tarot - Ace of Cups, Page of Swords, Seven of PentaclesReading Summary: I want to be a dreamer in my exploration of my emotions has begun to set me on that path (Ace of Cups), but my brain still has a habit of getting in the way (Page of Swords). It’s a work in progress (Seven if Pentacles).

Take Away: To be fair, I didn’t really understand this question… and I still don’t. The cards have given me a clear answer, though, regardless of my lack of understanding.

The answer is that as much as I want to be a dreamer, and am working towards being more of one than ever before in my past, my natural inclination is towards logic and that “seeing is believing” mentality.

Questions for August 3rd and 4th

Ema Poetica TarotWhat is my greatest strength?

Page of Wands atop King of Cups Rx – The ability to tap into your enthusiasm and curiosity regardless of the fact that the connection you have developed with your emotions is not matured or or particularly stable yet.

How to summon more willpower in my life?

Slow down, cowboy (Knight of Pentacles). You have plenty of willpower (The Emperor). Instead of reaching for more, you need to make sure that you’re not overstepping the healthy boundaries you’ve set for yourself (Nine of Wands).


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.
