Getting a Move On

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Förhäxa TarotToday’s draw is the Eight of Fire (Wands), which is traditionally a representation of swifts action, alacrity, immediacy, and speed.

Sometimes you have to “move it or lose it”, and that’s what today’s card is all about. Not everything can be done at a sedate and slow pace. Flying, for example, as what is seen in the illustration of today’s card, requires lift provided by speed, whether it be the speed of the wind, the speed of the bird, or a combination of both.

In today’s card, we are invited to look in our lives for those things that are requiring our immediate attention. What needs started or done now? What can’t be put off? The Eight of Fire invites us to examine these things, but also to take action to deal with them as well.


#DiscordTarotholicsSep2022 Challenge Prompt
Questions for September 16th and 17th

Dungeons & Dragons Tarot and Woven Wisdom OracleYour Addiction – Medusa – You have a habit of using your alone time in unhealthy ways. Although there is a true need for alone time in your general make-up, it’s not healthy to isolate yourself too much, no matter how tempting that may be.

How to Introduce Moderation – Izanagi & Izanami – Spend more time with those it feels good to be around. Even just allowing them to chill as a part of your life has a positive impact.

You – Page of Swords – You love to learn new things and explore. Imagination has no limits for you and your curiosity is boundless.

Your Annoyance – The Moon – Delays and uncertainty sometimes can get in the way of all you want to explore and pursue. These roadblocks often self inflicted and always frustrating.

What To Do About It – Seven of Coins atop The Chariot – Work on staying enthusiastic through the long haul. Just because you can learn new things (reflects back to the Page) quickly doesn’t always mean that you should. Sometimes it’s better to take your time.


The #ConnectWithYourDeckChallenge Prompt by E Roebuck-Jones
Questions for September 11th, 13th, and 14th

Förhäxa TarotHow do I grow from my mistakes?

Eight of Earth – You grow from your mistakes by getting beat over the head by them again and again until you get it right. You’re stubborn, and sometimes that means it takes more than once to learn a better way. There’s nothing wrong with that, it just means you end up with more experiences than most.

When do I trust myself?

The Chariot atop Elder of Water – You trust yourself to guide other’s tempers back to grounded when normally emotionally balanced people tip over into the energy of being stubborn and unreasonable. (Taming Gideon’s inner Grumpus, for example.)

What can I do about the fear of being wrong?

Death – Being wrong is something universal; it happens to everyone eventually. Take these moments when you are wrong not as roadblocks, but as opportunities for change, transition, and/or transformation.


Daily Self Kindness

I made cornbread to go along with my chili.  I really like cornbread and I’ve been craving it for over a week, but the store hadn’t had any until I checked earlier today.

Spirit Guides Tarot Reading

Spirit Guides Tarot Reading with The Painted Tarot

Card to represent the Spirit Guide with me through this reading.

Seven of Pentacles – This spirit guide has been with you for a very long time, and has been working to guide you into a state of slow and healthy growth with diligence and care. They seek to help you not just survive, but thrive, and work hard to guide you in that direction.

Something this Guide is currently helping me with.

Justice atop Ten of Wands – Learning how to avoid burnout and it’s consequences by helping to guide you into making better choices on how you expend your energy.

What my Guide wants me to know at this time.

Ten of Cups – You can be happy without having everything that you want by sharing what you have with others, and enjoying their company and support in your life. Lean into those that you support, as they are eager to support you as well.

How can I help get myself to this place/goal?

The World – Stay true to your beliefs and the person you want to become, as you stay open to the changes and new journeys that lie ahead. You’ve turned over a new leaf in your life by trying to treat yourself better, and you need to stay the course.

What is holding me back from reaching my goals?

Queen of Wands – Sometimes you can become a little bit too focused on supporting other’s dreams, and in the process you forget to foster your own. Although it is important to you to support those that you care about, make sure that you’re not overdoing it and neglecting yourself as a result.

How can I motivate myself to be more productive with my lesson?

The Devil – Seek out the pleasure in the goal, as well as in the journey to reach it. Your addictive tendencies will take care of the rest.

A way that this lesson will show up in my life in the near future.

Queen of Coins – You will once again be confronted with a need to support others and be that stability in their lives, and will need to make a choice about how you go about doing this so that it will not cause you overwhelm and lead to burnout.
