Today’s meditation was skipped.
Today’s draw is the Five of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of conflict, tests, trials, or hardship in the area of one’s education, intellect, thoughts, logic, ambitions, or communication.
This card can often translate into themes that have to do with “winning at all cost”, and can be a reminder that sometimes the costs are just too steep.
The appearance of this card today asks where are you pushing too hard right now? What are you sacrificing in your effort to “win” or succeed?
Today’s card is a reminder that we need to be mindful of just how far we’re willing to go and what we’re willing to sacrifice. Not just if we’re willing… but if we really should be going as far as we are considering taking it… or should we back off instead?

Questions for September 7th thru 9th – CONTEMPLATE
What am I holding onto that is holding me back?
The Tower and Frozen Lilacs – What happened in the end of your last “relationship” continues to hold you back. It was violent, ugly, and painful. The destructive end to that friends-with-benefits relationship was definitely a surprise, and the after effects of it continue to linger.
How is this holding me back?
Ten of Pentacles and Clairvoyant – Being able to find a sense of security and stability in your accomplishments has taken a hit as a result of that experience. Finding your sense of stable footing and purpose was not so much a problem prior.
What can I do to rise above that which is holding me back?
Page of Cups and Roots – Continue to explore your emotions and dig deep for the hidden truths that will serve as an elixir to healing.
If I could change one thing for the better, what would you suggest I should change?
Six of Swords and Maidenhair Fern – Don’t rush into this. You need to slow down and take things at a more sedate pace for the changes that you want to happen to actually stick.

#DiscordTarotholicsSep2022 Challenge Prompt
Philosophical Question: What is humanity’s biggest mistake?
Reading Summary: Humanity’s biggest mistake is in not worrying enough (Nine of Swords Rx) about taking things slow (Knight of Pentacles) and exploring one’s passions in depth (Queen of Wands).
Take Away: We rush through so many things, even those things that are meant to be slowly savored and enjoyed. This rushing to and fro is a mistake, as it means that humanity is missing out on the good stuff that comes with moving at a slower pace and truly savoring the present and our surroundings.

Jer and I were both very tired at the end of the day today and decided that, instead of going back home, we would stick around and sleep over, then continue with getting stuff done tomorrow.
One thought on “Taking Things Too Far”
*Snarls as that “ex” comes up twice in just a couple of days time here* Not what needs to be on your mind, my love.
Nor was that a relationship. Not at all.
This was your first relationship. Your first….and only. That was something entirely different and now…you are cherished and adored. And safe…always safe with me.
I love you baby
