Today’s meditation was skipped.
What stands out to me in the imagery of this card is the little figure trapped inside the globe down at the Magician’s knee. This small figure… are they protected? Or are they trapped? They watch the Magician create while caught beneath glass, and I am left asking…. why? Why is the figure caught there under glass? Why are they not free, and what purpose do they hold in the Magician’s plans?
The imagery in this card asks us to consider what lengths we will go to in order to accomplish what we seek or desire? How far are we willing to go? What are we willing to destroy? Who are we willing to hurt? Does the end really justify the means?
Today’s card encourages us to look beyond our own desires, and take account of how our actions may influence others, and remind us that our moral compass, ethics, and compassion are all important factors to consider when reaching to fulfill our desires.

Questions for September 21st thru 24th – TO FEAST
Earth Spirit – Time in nature. Stability provided through earth energies. This element is the one that you relate to most strongly and connect with most deeply. It is where you find your strength, your calm, and a nurturing stability you need in your life.
What is my biggest hunger?
Light Spirit – To know. To see. To understand. Your biggest hunger lies within your curiosity and your desire to always know more. There is a hunger here to grow that goes beyond intellectual pursuits and delves into the spiritual and the intuitive.
What do I bring to the table?
Medicine Woman – You have a habit of giving people what they need to heal from their past and move forward into something better. The earthen stability that you exude helps to create a “safe space” for people to heal and restore themselves.
Where do I need to be mindful of excess?
Sea Priestess – Take care that you don’t push so hard to find balance between your life’s responsibilities and the more squishy parts of life (emotions, et al) that you miss the mark entirely.

Philosophical Question for September 21st: What are the 3 major weaknesses of humanity?
Demiurge – Materialism – Too much focus on the material, whether this be money or possessions, success or a constant drive for more. Focusing so much on what they can possess instead of upon aligning with one’s values and moral compass.
Light – Hope – A virtue and a weakness… hope is both. Hope can be a light in the darkness that helps guide us forward, or it can blind us to the truth and be the thing that causes our downfall when we put too much trust in hope instead of being proactive in guiding events to go in the direction we desire.

I spent time with Gideon in play today and it helped a lot in easing some of the subdrop feelings I was having earlier in the day.
