Today’s meditation was skipped.
Today’s draw is the Five of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of tests, trials, and conflict in the area of one’s thoughts, intellect, ambitions, and communication. This can often translate into themes that have to do with winning at any cost, disagreements, and occasionally defeat if you end up on the wrong side of the conflict.
The imagery in this card speaks to me of a need to make sure everyone has surrendered their weapons before you lower your own.
There is a difference between trust… and naivety. It is naive, for example, to trust strangers that seek to do you harm. Thus why they must surrender all their weapons first in the image, in order to ensure the safety of the one currently in control.
Today’s card asks us to examine the trust we put in others… and who those others are. Have they truly earned your trust? Or are you being naive in trusting someone you should continue to be wary of?

#DiscordTarotholicsNov2022 Challenge Prompt
Question for November 7th: What do I need to focus on for self-care for this full moon?
Reading Summary: It’s time to pull up your reserves (Perseverance), take charge (The Mom Boss), and plunge in balls deep (The Two of Deez).
Take Away: Part of self care has to do with dealing with one’s responsibilities instead of ignoring them. Only by staying on top of things can you create space for other types of self-care that might be needed. If your responsibilities pile up? It becomes a huge ordeal and a massive amount of stress.
So, for this full moon? Dive into the holiday rush and stay on top of things from the beginning, that way nothing falls behind and creates problems down the road.

Mr Lionhart’s The Suits: Revisited #TheNovemberTarot Prompt
Questions for November 7th and 8th
Suit of Wands – What steps can I take (today) towards manifesting my plans?
Page of Wands and King of Cups Rx – Forsake more time with Gideon in order to lean into the orders and your business.
Yeah, okay. Just saying? But that’s not happening. It might make things go more smoothly with the beginning of the holiday rush, but I need that time with him to help smooth out the rough edges of my emotions.
Suit of Wands – In what way/area can this creative process help me grow?
Eight of Wands and Temperance Rx – It would speed things along toward my goals, but require setting aside the moderation boundaries you have tried to instill in yourself over the past few years.
Take Away: Yes, this advice would be good for my business and my drive. Sometimes, though… you have to let that stuff take a back seat for just a little more of what you need on a soul deep level. Tonight’s time with Gideon is just that… a soul deep need that I have no intention of giving up… even to get a jump on the rush about to crash down over me.

I got my flu shot and Covid booster done today. And, of course, also the stuff about Gideon that’s mentioned above.
