The Sadness of Letting Go

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Trionfi Tarot - The WorldToday’s draw is the World card, which is traditionally a representation of the end of a journey, the completion of a time of growth, accomplishment, and transitioning from one path in life to another.

The imagery for this card today is very classic, but what catches my attention is the fact that the card is a bit… dark.  That’s not a trick of the light in the photo, it’s actually a bit dark and muted.

This brings to light an aspect of a card that is usually a bit of a celebration and a bit of a relief.   That is, the sadness of letting go.  In order to step through that wreath of laurels and into a new beginning, we have to leave something behind.  That can be hard, and sometimes it can feel a bit sad.

The message in today’s card is to remember that you have new good things ahead.  Don’t let the letting go get you down and make you forget where you’re going.


#DiscordTarotholicsSep2022 Challenge Prompt
Questions for September 26th and 27th

Secret Wood OracleAs the warmth of early Autumn draws to an end next month, what needs to be let go of?

Dreamer atop Ally – Sadly, this is referencing the interactive storytelling that you enjoy with Gideon. In these endeavors you create worlds together, and spent time with him in these worlds.

This is a reminder to enjoy it while you can, for as the holiday rush arrives in early November, you will have to let go of this joy in your life until next January.

What needs a little more focus and energy to complete before winter?

Creatrix – Self discovery and self care. Soon enough you won’t have time for either. It’s time to make sure that you ensure you get all that you need, and build up the practices that will get you through the winter rush.


The #ConnectWithYourDeckChallenge Prompt by E Roebuck-Jones
Questions for September 26th thru 28th

Trionfi Tarot - Knight of Swords, Queen of Swords, Hanged Man, The HermitHow can I stop taking criticism personally?

Queen of Swords atop Knight of Swords – Stop and think it through then rise above instead of impulsively flying off the handle.

Do I believe my opinion matters?

The Hanged Man – Yes, but you think everyone’s opinions matter. You like to see outside your own perspectives, and part of that is in listening to and trying to understand other people’s viewpoints.

How can I best express my love for others?

The Hermit Rx – Don’t shut them out. It’s not healthy for you and it makes them feel lost and alone.  By letting them in and making sure they are a part of your life instead of just in the periphery of it, they feel more loved and more important, and you are healthier both mentally and emotionally.


Daily Self Kindness

I brought a handful of tarot cloths with me to the house today so that I don’t have to pull cards on cardboard and packing paper every time I pull my cards there instead of at home.
