Today’s meditation was skipped.
Today’s draw is the Six of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of public accolades, societal expectations, people pleasing, and peer pressure.
Here in the imagery of this deck, I see a very clear theme of peer pressure. Lots of teenagers, lots of weed, and a party going on. It feels a lot like me of those “come over and party while my parents are out of town” movie scenes.
Today’s card is a reminder that you don’t need to fit in with others. Be unique. Be different. Stand out. Conformity isn’t just boring, but disappointing and dangerous.
