Getting In Your Own Way

Today’s meditation was skipped.  I did some dawdling on the bed today, but I didn’t actually meditate.

Mage Tarot Ascension EditionToday’s draw is the Five of Pattern (Pentacles), which is traditionally a representation of tests, trials, and hardship in the areas of one’s finances, resources, home life, labors, and manifestations.

What I see in the imagery of today’s card is a man imprisoned, and it seems to me that it’s the same man (with hair) that is on the screen behind him.  This gives me the impression that the man is in chains of his own making, his thoughts, judgements, and displeasure projected behind him and continuing the imprisonment of his own making.  It is a cycle of self-judgement that turns into an inability to act, which perpetuates self judgement, and further inability to act.

The message that I then see here in today’s card is that you can’t work well or efficiently when you’re all stuck in your own head. Sometimes, we bring ourselves down far better than anyone else ever could.  There is encouragement here, therefore, to examine what negative inner narratives and judgements might be holding you back from taking action or performing at your best?

Questions for September 25th thru 27th – CELEBRATE

Black Cat Tarot and Mystic Garbage OracleWhat is something about my journey I can be grateful of /for?

Knight of Wands and Crystal – Your path is unconventional and most of your interests are as well. Be grateful for the ability to safely and happily go about your passions and interests without danger to yourself or those around you. In many places in the world this is not the case and you must toe the line or pay serious consequences.

If tarot would be my soul currency, what card would make me wealthy?

Death and Artemis – Don’t allow the changes in life to beat you down, but continue being yourself regardless of what comes your way.

Confession… I did not understand the question, so I just winged it and let the cards tell me what they wanted to say. Although I still do not understand the question… I understand what the cards are saying.

How am I invited today to celebrate my life and that which is dear to me?

Strength and Sunflower – Use the knowledge you have gained about positivity and optimism as tools to lift you up and make each day just a little better.

Page of Wands and Nine of Cups – Find ways to share what makes you happy with others. In this way, you then grow together instead of alone.

Where do I need to slow down?

Eight of Wands and The Lovers – Check your enthusiasm enough to at least consider personal safety. In other words… look before you leap.

I instigated some “together time” play with Gideon today, which I think we both were in desperate need of.

One thought on “Getting In Your Own Way

  1. This is one of those posts that I tried to comment on and my phone does not like it and refuses to send it through. I’m not sure why I’m having such an issue with it now when it worked fine before.

    I love you, man. And I very much enjoyed the play that you instigated. Getting time with you makes my soul feel so much better. I’ve really needed this, and you
