It’s In the Reach

Today’s meditation was skipped.

VooDoo Dolly TarotToday’s draw is the Ace of Coins, which is traditionally a representation of the seed of new beginnings in the area of one’s finances, resources, health, hearth and home, labors, and manifestations.

What stands out to me in the imagery of this card is there’s a crown free-floating out there in the ether. It speaks to me of opportunity and potential. It says you can do much better, reach for the gold and you will achieve your best result.

Today’s card is an encouragement that tells us that it is in reaching for better that we succeed. It’s how we build a life worth living, how we grow and succeed, and how we become our best selves. Life isn’t about failures and misfortunes, but about what we reach for and where that reach can help us grow.


HealingThruTarot’s October Shadow Work Challenge Prompt
Questions for October 11th and 13th

VooDoo Dolly Tarot and Heart Forward DeckHow are my insecurities projected onto others?

The Stars and Death – You worry too much about what might happen and when, instead of looking to the present ant towards hope and positivity. This creates a more apathetic outlook towards others as your pessimism creates a lackadaisical “everyone dies sometime” attitude that is neither healthy or helpful.

How can I overcome my perceived flaws?

Knight of Swords and Loving – Be proactive about keeping your negative inner narrative in check through loving and caring thoughts, rather than an uncaring attitude. It is in leaning into self-kindness and positivity that you keep your inner critic from eating you alive.


#DiscordTarotholicsOct2022 Challenge Prompt
Question for October 13th: Spirits
: How can you improve your relationship with your ancestors?

VooDoo Dolly TarotReading Summary: Make peace with your ancestors (Queen of Swords) by turning over a new emotional leaf where she is concerned (Page of Cups) and letting her back in and allowed to have an opinion in your life (Seven of Wands).

Take Away: Let go of the history and step into a new beginning concerning those that should have loved you but perhaps did so too harshly.  Listen to these ancestors, even if the history that you have with them is unpleasant.  Regardless of that history, in the present they only have your best interests at heart.

Why am I feeling unmotivated?

Seven of Pentacles – You struggle with staying motivated when something takes a good deal of time to accomplish. Especially when it feels like there are no rewards along the way, only an end goal far off in the future and feeling out of reach.

What fear is keeping me from moving forward?

Nine of Cups Rx – The unpleasantness of it all. You have a hard time getting motivated for things that you don’t enjoy or feel lackluster about.  It holds you back when you should be pushing through.

What do I need to release so I can start taking action?

Ace of Pentacles – The expectation that everything has to be done perfectly. Perfectionism can hold you back if you let it.  Let go of the need for absolutely everything to be perfect.  You don’t have to be perfect all the time for every little thing.

What is the first step I can take?

Four of Wands – Celebrate what you already have, the stability you have built, and the security you value. These things are a great motivator, and will carry you forward.

What beneficial energy/attitude can I embrace?

Judgement – Take care not to judge yourself too harshly. You are a work in progress, and you are your greatest critic.  Be kind and accepting of yourself, and ease up on the self cruelty.

What is my motivation?

Four of Pentacles – Stability and a sense of security will always be an excellent motivator for you.
