A Show of Compassion

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Skele-TarotToday’s draw is the Strength card, which is traditionally a representation of inner strength, persuasion usually through means of compassion, influence and/or manipulation, and courage.

“Smoothing the feathers” of others.

That’s where this card takes me today.  When we care about others, sometimes smoothing their feathers and helping them to ease up, calm down, or see things in a different light is important.

Sometimes it’s important to do this for those around those we care for as well, in order to help things go smoothly, or protect those we care about, or just to make sure that people aren’t trespassing over set boundaries.

Today’s card is are minder that this task isn’t a bad thing, nor a chore that one should dread needing to deal with.  It’s a show of love and care.  A show of compassion and strength.

#DiscordTarotholicsOct2022 Challenge Prompt
Question for October 4th
: Spooked: What scares you?

Skele-TarotReading Summary: It scares you that your efforts (Eight of Pentacles) will not lead to (Imagery in the Seven of Wands) success (Queen of Pentacles).

Take Away: The idea that you could put years or longer into something, all your energy and dedication into developing the skill at something… and then find yourself somehow blocked from reaching your goals.

Investment without reward is one of your greatest fears, especially when that investment encompasses huge swaths of time, effort, and focus.  To put in all that time, effort, and focus only to end up empty handed is something you don’t even like to consider as a possibility.


Daily Self Kindness

I rode on the lumber cart today and made J push instead of walking around the hardware store and letting the floors play hell with my knee, hip, and back.

One thought on “A Show of Compassion

  1. Just remember, love, if your mind has went where mind did with this….There is a limit to how far that “smoothing of feathers” can or -should- go. Your boundaries and limitations are important too, not just holding things together and keeping the waters looking calm.

    *Grins at you riding on the lumber cart* So damn cute
