The Right Path

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Diramazioni TarotToday’s draw is the Three of Twigs (Wands), which is traditionally a representation of the first active step in a journey, progress towards a goal, and the seizing of opportunities.

What stands out to me the strongest in the imagery of this card is the leaves that sprout from the “twigs” in the scene.  They are not little sprigs, but fully formed leaves, and they speak to me of being well upon one’s path.  No, there are no branches yet, no great growth, but there is growth.

Today’s card is an encouragement. It speaks of having found a worthy path before you, and making the necessary preparations, are now well and truly starting.  Don’t look back… keep going!  Help those small beginnings grow and flourish into something truly spectacular.


#DiscordTarotholicsNov2022 Challenge Prompt
Question for November 5th

The Forty Servants OracleLet GoThe Contemplator – Let go of your worries and stresses. They are only holding you back and serve no purpose at this time.

Find SupportThe Adventurer – Seek out others to support you as you dive into the holiday rush. All of your energy will be poured into this time and you need to “spread the load”. Also, don’t keep all the fun to yourself… just as you share the work with others, be sure that you’re sharing the fun with others as well, even if this means getting their help to find the fun in the first place.

Dig DeeperThe Witch – Seek out new ways to incorporate mystery and magic into your everyday life. Just because your holidays are filled to the brim with work doesn’t mean that you can’t continue with small practices that help you to ground and connect with yourself on a deeper level.  It just means you may not be able to sit with these deeper levels and explore them fully right now.


Mr Lionhart’s The Suits: Revisited #TheNovemberTarot Prompt
Questions for November 5th and 6th

Diramazioni TarotSuit of Wands – What should be cleared or dealt with before I begin to create?

Lord of Twigs and Judgement – Clear out harsh judgments on how you expect things to go, and instead ride it out without trying to control every little aspect.

Suit of Wands – Something I should know about the things I wish to create for myself?

Five of Twigs and Lady of Amphorae – Make sure that the effort you put in are worth the time and energy expended. When you overtax yourself you become emotionally vulnerable. Support yourself by looking closely at those things you fight for and weeding out the ones that really are frivolous or just pride.


Daily Self Kindness

I had some play time with Gideon today and it really helped in easing some of my stress and anxiety.

Haunted Times Cartomancy Reading

Once Upon a Time Playing CardsThe prompt for this reading came from one of my Discord servers and is as follows: “Alright! It’s Halloween/Samhain, so let’s do some divination about what’s “haunting” us in our lives.

What’s sitting over my shoulders and/or clinging to me?

Nine of Hearts, King of Spades atop Five of Hearts – Your inner narrative is a demanding taskmaster with harsh judgements and a sharp tongue.  It is putting in overtime trying to crush happiness under its boots and leave you aching and in need of retreat.

Is this something that will always be with me, or that I should try to work into my life?

Four of Hearts, Queen of Clubs atop Jack of Clubs – Although that inner narrative may be permanent, the amount of influence it has over your emotions is temporary.  Make sure that you are leaning into your passions, and dipping into creative endeavors and those things that motivate you, to help provide you with extra strength to resist that negative inner narrative when it rises up.

Or… is it something I need to banish and/or does not serve me to keep?

Eight of Diamonds and Nine of Clubs – Only hard work and good boundaries can keep the influences of that negative inner narrative at bay. It cannot be banished entirely, but it can be controlled and mitigated if you’re willing to put in the effort.

What is the best way to handle it at this time?

Three of Hearts atop Three of Spades, Jack of Hearts – Lean into others in your life to help lift you up when you start to feel the darkness creeping in. They have the ability to teach you how to lean into the positive and seek out optimism for an emotional lift during these times.  Something you’ve yet to master on your own quite yet.
