Don’t Rush It

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Madam Lydia Wilhelmina's Tarot of Monsters, the Macabre, and Autumn ScenesToday’s draw is the Page of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of a receptive omega energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s enthusiasm, passions, drive, principles and values, willpower, and motivations.

The stillness of the figure in this card’s imagery speaks to me about the concept of stillness and patience.  Sometimes, when we are learning a new skill or starting a new passion project? We have to check our expectations and take things slow… even when maybe we don’t want to.

The thing is, these things can take time, and to do things right? It can be important to not rush it.

Questions for September 25th and 26th

Bones of the Bonestone Tarot and Sacred Horse OracleEngage here.

Page of Wands – Every year is a new opportunity to do the holiday rush better than before. Make sure that you are engaging in the practices that will help pave the way, and trying new things that could help make the rush less of a chore and more of a passion project.

Disengage here.

Eight of Swords Rx – Willful ignorance is not your friend. Don’t ignore what is coming. You need to be checked in and engaged, not trying to pretend what’s coming is not so close and drawing closer.

Finding Balance Between the Two – The holiday rush is on the horizon but not yet here (Liminal Space), so make sure that you are taking time for yourself for rest and restoration (Integration). Preparation is about more than tasks that need to be done and things needing stocked up in advance, remember that it is also about self-care and getting what you need to enter into the holiday season feeling grounded, ready to go, and energized.

What have you always known?

Five of Wands – What feels right do you. No matter if it small and inconsequential things, or big important ones, you’ve never had a problem knowing what’s right for you and standing in certainty of that knowledge.

What still needs to be learned?

Page of Cups – Your journey of emotional intelligence and especially in understanding your own emotions is still at its beginning and there is still much more to be learned in this area.

Finding Balance Between the Two – Find a sense of peace and balance between what you know is for you and the uncertainty of your emotional journey (Harmony) by sinking into your creativity and allowing yourself to find joy in the creative process (Divine Encounter).


To Cull & Gather #VennoxesTarotChallenge Prompt
Questions for September 26th thru 30th – HONOURING THE DARKNESS

Madam Lydia Wilhelmina's Tarot of Monsters, the Macabre, and Autumn ScenesWhat do I need to illuminate and bring to the forefront?

Four of Wands – This is about gratitude. It’s about bringing to the forefront all that is good and comfortable in your home life. There’s lots that you want to chance, sure. That doesn’t mean you should let those things overshadow all the good, though.

How can my fears be transformed into joys?

Two of Cups – Share your fears with those that care. In the sharing, your burden is lifted enough to allow room for others to care for and comfort you.

What is the best way for me to rest and recuperate?

Page of Cups – Tap into your creativity and imagination. Do things that are completely unrelated to your work, and use the creative spark they kindle to reinvigorate you.

What void is in my life?

Two of Coins – You’re fooling no one by trying to circumvent your need for life balance. You need to take a moment to look at what you are juggling, and how to go about it in a manner that doesn’t steal from your self-care needs.

What should I let fade away?

King of Swords – Clear away authoritarian communication and step back from “taking charge”. It’s okay to take a back seat now and then and just see what happens.
